For some reason I can't get photobucket to upload my bike picture, so here's one that looks almost exactly like it:



I washed my bike and threw it in the truck so I could take it to work tomorrow to get her tuned up so I can go on some rides.

Guys, if you have to take an emergency shit on the trail, do it away from the main fucking trail on not in the middle of it!

If you want to ride a trail that doesn't suck, let me know. I'll ride Northshore with you whenever.

I would assume its an animal. Would you want grass tickling your butt when you crap. That's usually why they do it on the trail.

What, no Road bike thread?

I did a loop at Northshore last night, was running out of time so Only did 11 miles. Averaged 10.8 Trail was prime last night, except some of the sandy areas seem to be getting bad already.

Spring shocks are good, they just cant lock out like an air shock (big woop). FOr the money, that is a good bike. Mix match of components but it surely doesnt suck.
My next HT will be a Carve. Mmmm.

Ill try, My only dilema is this week we have no short day thanks to new minimum staffing requirements as of last week.. Therefore if one person is off, I get no short day. Im working 12's all week. So, that being said, im 6p-6a and will probably be at horseshoe at around 730-8. That too early Luis?

Coil spring shocks are heavy, and hard to adjust, because you have to replace a spring to account for differences in rider weight. Normally the bikes come very under sprung for any adult that rides. So there are a lot of reasons to go for a nice air fork.
