    So the missus said to me.....

    "You love your Cannondale more than me"

    I replied..

    "Don't be silly, of course I don't....... it's about even"

    I got a slap for that one. Not sure why.
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    Nah, she was just moaning because I came in from a nice ride and spent an hour cleaning her (my Cannondale) when she wanted to go out for lunch lol!

    You gotta get ~her~ a Cannondale, get her to liking it, then you can place equal status on yours as she places on hers. Keeps da peace!

    Mine has no interest in MTB but after not touching a bike after 30 tears she suggested we bought matching bikes as an Anniversary present to us. We ended up both upgrading soon from dept store bikes to my Prophet for me and her Giant Suede Beach Cruiser. Different worlds yes but we have 150k of singletrack starting outside our door and a very long Beach Strip(and I do mean Strip) just down the road. We ride the strip together and picnic.

    Mickey, sounds like an idea. Maybe I could by my missus a cheap Cannondale?

    I think she's a bit jealous of her (Rosey her name is) to be honest. She called her "it" today, I was not impressed.

    This is the correct answer. I just bought the g/f a NOS Scalpel for cheap... her first ride on it was yesterday:

    And she woke up at 5:30 this morning to take it on its second ride.

    Good to hear a success story, how much was it? (the bike, not your missus).

    Let's just say less than half retail... it was sitting on the floor for 3 years! It's way more bike than she needs, but couldn't turn it down. Aside from the bargain, the Scalpel seemed the perfect solutino to the hardtail vs f/s I was struggling with for her first mtb.

    I am pretty sure I saw your wife yesterday at Sullivan, I was on the way up when she was on the way down (about 11:30+/-) I was on a white Carbon Rush 1.

    As for the Scapel let me guess it was at Helens. I looked at that bike many times was going to buy it for my daughter but thought too much bike.

    I should not have waited I was telling my wife about that bike and went in yesterday before my ride and it was gone.

    Good to see it getting used.
    Forks are for eating, Lefty's are for racing,

    Ha, yes indeed Helen's. I was in the weekend before helping a friend's g/f buy HER first mtb, and that one caught my eye... went back thinking the red F2 they have on sale might be the ticket, but it was a bit too big. Yes, that timing sounds exactly right on Sullivan! I was with a different group, but was surprised the conditions were as good as they were given the rain.

    Let me guess , the Scalpel is your size and you might "borrow" it in a pinch
    from time to time

    Ha. Sadly, it's too small. But it does have me leaning toward adding a new Scalpel to the barn. The team discount is making life very difficult for me!

    Wow small world. Good for you, that was a solid deal.

    And I agree, Sullivan and surrounding areas, were in good shape.

    BTW do you ride a Flash 29?

    No... Motobecane Ti (all decals removed). Yesterday was riding with guys on a new tallboy, a carbon fisher hardtail, and a mongoose hardtail.
