NAHBS Bound - 2 Weeks and counting
With the show being on the East Coast this year, I am going to make the pilgrimage down to Charlotte with the MM and a rented (Lensrentals.com as always!!) Fuji X-T1 in tow. I am looking forward to seeing all of the amazing creations from some fantastic frame and bike builders.
While checking out this segment of the bike industry is my main goal, a secondary effort will be spent evaluating the new Fuji X-T1. A camera that is really generating a ton of buzz and one that I feel could really make a great (rugged, weather sealed) bike adventure camera. I shot the Lost Coast trip with two Fuji cameras and a little Nikon V1 with mixed impressions. Both of those cameras had pros but a ton of cons. I am excited to see what Fuji has done and give it a real chance. I am really stoked to try out the WiFi component and do some live blogging while roaming the show.
After finishing up with NAHBS, I will head to the mountains of Western NC for some trail riding on the new Salsa Cycles Spearfish. I need to learn how to set the bike up to go tubeless in preparation for a run on the AZT in April. An area full of flat inducing Goatheads, I have to figure this whole thing out. Sooner or later, manufactures will make the whole process of running tubeless easier...
If you are going to be at NAHBS or out in those western regions of NC and want to connect, please comment or drop me an email.
It appears that the Fuji X-T1 is in stock at BH Photo with the kit lens, while the body only is still on 'Pre-Order'.
