The last couple of years my main "squeeze" has been a race grade hardtail I picked up for $400. That bike has put a smile on my face more times than I can count. However a couple of times it has let me down. Last year some guys who know I ride a lot "suckered" me into a technical ride and i wrecked my knee-torn ACL and everything else.(you dont have to fix a torn ACL-Just Keep Riding). Last week I raced at the Pueblo and the bike smoked leaving a lot of FS rigs in the dust.
The Estrella race was the most recent let down. I really didnt pass anybody and I crashed about four times. It was the type of race that guys with FS rigs who I usually beat by 7-8 minutes now had their turn beating me by 7-8 minutes.
Anyway it boils down to this, I think I want to be a "poser" although I cant afford it. I would rather be looking pretty at the finish on a Fuel 110 rather that sitting in the medic tent getting bandaged.
