    This was last week. Awesome ride. Snow smoothed out the trail and everything was frozen underneath. Fast quiet and surreal.

    Lovely. Used to ride solo in Chicago at Palos Forest when I was in grad school. I remember my first solo snow ride well, as I was coming from Southern California. Got lost, of course, and had visions of Survivorman with me stuck in the snow somewhere.

    Got out alive, of course.

    Swapped the 1.95 Tioga tires out for Bontrager XR2's in 2.10. Got the pair of tires
    for $15 (new) at The Milwaukee Bike Swap last Sunday. Need better performance
    in the sand and am hoping the less aggressive tread than the 2.10 Nevegals that
    came with the bike and the wider width than the Tiogas that were on the bike now
    is the ticket.

    Tomorrow I am gonna go run the bike at a local trail to see how they work in the
    root strewn, sand and loose gravel, rocks, loam, and hardpack that exists there....
    I will run em in the sand next trip....unless there is 3 feet of snow...

    Before




    After


    And dig that crazy sculpted orange shag carpet and dark paneling! Yes folks, it is
    1978 in my house....

    You saw that huh? That stereo is older than my oldest son! I run my computer output through it so I can play along to music with my bass guitars.

    switched from 105mm to 80mm stem and went for a ride. Saw improvement but might want to go even shorter.

    I popped my rear tire in a rock garden, Stans took forever to seal a 1/8" hole. I got to use my Co2 inflator which was cool, but on the way out of the garden I lost it on the trail. didnt realize it until I was at the trail head, I had to go back and get it because I still needed more air to make it home. Think the Specialized 2bliss tire casing saved my butt even at less than 10psi it still wouldn't burp or roll of the rim.

    notes to remember, puncture a tire 10 times with thorns be sure to refill with sealant before riding again . upon refilling the tire I noticed 2 more large thorns in the rear tire, 1 sidewall and 1 on the edge of the tread/sidewall.

    Took my new GT Sensor 9r Elite out for it's first test ride after final assembly. Short ride around the neighborhood streets to check out brakes, shifters, seat height, etc. This was my first online bike purchase, and since I still consider myself a noob, I wanted to be close to home for this ride... Just in case. So far so good. Hope the weather will cooperate at least one more time to allow an actual trail ride this year.

    Did 10.7 miles on the Jamis Dakar, did it in 1:42, my best time yet, it was a 1000 ft climb on a fire road, rode my fav rocky technical trail, then rode down some smooth flowy singletrack, best ride to date! And sorry no pics I was busy getting my @$$ kicked by the 1000 ft climb, it was also my furthest/highest climb to date.

    today for the sport of mountain biking I...

    Got a camelback LOBO, some shimano mtb shoes, some shimano spd M540's, a lizard skin chainstay protector. and even had time to squeeze in a ride. but it was super muddy and the nine line tires didn't want to grab any form of traction.

    I moved to a new town a month ago, I'm determined to get back into MTBing so I took my 01 jekyll out for a spin and did alittle bit of scouting to find potential trails or riding areas.

    So far I've just about come up dry, I found some old BMX jumps that were look like they were not touched in 3-5 years. The area is SMALL but could give me a nice close to home trail to test changes before a ride.

    It also pushed me over the edge to upgrade some of the components on the bike. The Deore Brakes make a perfect turkey call and have horrid stopping power. the crank has a creak in it and no matter how much I adjusted the deralier it does not keep gears very well. I've got BB7's and the X9 drivetrain group on the way. I'm still looking to grab another lefty wheelset or a road bike for cheap.

    ordered some ebay night riding lights bout a week ago. beginning to order everything i need to rebuild my hardtail. new fork, deciding on X9 build kit or to order shimino xt parts separate. new seat, grips, Flat Downhill pedals and some 5-tens to go with them, and some Maxxis tires. and then i'll start getting new riding gear as well. hopefully all this done before early spring gets here so i can go ride. because 27 degree weather just isnt my cup of tea right now

    Went on my first snow ride today, with my son. Good conditions for our first time on the snow. Mid-40’s, about an inch of snow, but had a few stretches of sloppy mud as well. I had my FS 29er, and he had his Mamba 29er hardtail. Swapped bikes for awhile and could really tell a difference between his 2.2 Bonties and my 2.1 Maxxis Aspens though. I'll definitely take my Mamba next time. Had an absolute blast and can't wait to go out and play in the snow again!

    first bike wash

    first bike wash after being rejected by couple of lbs for checking/brake pads replacement from after trailed rides, this i cant understand whats the theory behind servicing bikes with some dirt~ dont these bike shops provide cleaning services?! i dont even mind paying extras!

    never been a cleaning person so planned of using 30mins but ended up over an hour and still not clean~ really tough doing it.

    couldnt go on and lubed chain/cassettes/crank/RD with leftover castrol & brush~

    Did a town-to-town road ride with a nice ex railroad bed shortcut. Mud and spots of snow on it...

    I did around 32 miles all together.
