The Lake and the Duc | Test Day 2

Bernards, NJ – 05/04/2014

Nothing remotely exciting, just more of the same…some moderate riding around the
Ravine Lake loop to sort out the R002 – SBK.  The second test session gave me still a
bit more feedback and I was able to push a bit harder on the descents and tight corners, with slightly more confidence. I now have a good idea as to what changes I need to make
to the bike in order to dial it in a bit closer to my liking.

Archetype-X | R002 – SS Build update III

Just a quick update…

The R-002 frame is still in China and not going anywhere because of the Chinese New Year.
For whatever reason(s) the frame did not ship out in early January, as I was told so. Now the earliest it might ship out is February 16th (fingers crossed). If the package leaves then, it may arrive before March, but I am not that hopeful. It has been very, very frustrating to say the least.

So, right now I am estimating a mid March-April build. I really hope to be riding the R002 – SS by mid April early May. Stay tuned…
