    pHOTo Friday

    Didn't see one started, so what the heck.

    Caught going down National.



    Few pics from recent Sedona trip.

    Here's some classic freeskier from three years ago at BCT, back when 20 miles was big stuff. How far some of us have come, and how far some of us have fallen.... Whoever designed my knee was a ****ing idiot! /end self loathing.

    I can remember the days when a 15 mile ride was "epic"...
    Your limits are both physical and mental. Suffering will help you find and overcome both.

    Yup. I remember having to stop every 1 mile to catch my breath on Blevins.

    No bike pics from me this week as i too busy planning and taking supermoon shots. This month I tried out the Canon 400mm f/5.6 with 2x teleconverter - that lens rocks and may soon end up in my camera bag.









    On Sunday night, Chongoman and his family volunteered to be my models:

    Cranking up the way-back machine on that one!! Look at that little bike!! I recall being completely overworked by that point of the ride. Epic indeed, all 24 miles of it!!

    I dug this one up from the same outing, vintage 'good knee' suffering atop the climb from Table Mesa on the Redline SS!!

    Made that whole climb too! That was some of my first SS too. Might have had it for two months. Loved it! I was even able to tag along with Ray on the AES route a month after that, all 50 miles of it. Rigid SS?! What the hell was I thinking? It's not often you get a snap of Ray 30 miles into a ride...I must have been "keeping up" with him....



    How's that for a touch of greatness?

    Gotta love the old school route finding too.

    40 mile round trip to work required a bottle swap when I got home. I rode a couple miles of dirt path & shoulder to justify putting it here too.

    Spare tube, tools, etc. Just the heavy stuff, not that there's a bunch of it. I leave my pack for food/water only. And I'm just too lazy to switch out the framebag and contents for every other ride!!

    i'm wondering, does having 5-10 lbs in a frame pack have any noticeable effect on reducing rear tire bouncing on a HT

    this is actually a serious question im asking,, please see all other threads for my smart-ass remarks

    I can't say that I notice a difference one way or the other. It's nice to have the little bit of extra weight off my back, plus it is easier to find stuff in my pack without having the tools, etc mixed in. I'm riding with an Osprey Talon 22 pack, so it's rather overkill for a 2-3 hour ride, but it fits me really well and I don't feel like changing out to my smaller Camelbak Mule every other ride.
