Twists and Turns


My life has taken a bit of an unexpected turn the past two months -- Something that I will write about when the time is right, but for now, is all consuming.  In the meantime, my riding and writing is definitely taking a back seat to the issues that need to be dealt with.  While going through this life event, I continue to explore my environment in B&W, just at a slower and much less adventurous pace.  The adventure will be back, but for now it takes a back seat to more pressing issues of life.

I do have a couple of items that I will be writing about in the next week or so during down time, including my thoughts on the state of the Mirrorless market (Olympus v. Fuji while Nikon and Canon are asleep at the wheel).  I have a brief review on how I use a L bracket combined with the RRS mini plate and a Black Rapid (Kurve, Metro, Sport) strap to carry my cameras in certain situations. Lastly, I have some thoughts on B&W photography as a means of enhancing your color vision. 

I am optimistic that my much desired 2014 Salsa Ti Fargo will arrive soon and the review on that can commence along with the unveiling of my SUL kit from Scott, the master mind at Porcelain Rocket (1.5 pounds for an entire bikepacking setup...).  I am still on the fence with regards to gearing the Fargo, a toss up between going with a Rohloff or XX1.  Your thoughts are appreciated.
