    Proof that im a clydsedale LOL

    Bent my crack the other day on a rock hitting some singletrack. fast forward to yesterday when im doing a bit of street riding to get to a friends house. I decide to hit a 6 stair drop and when i land BAM. There goes the crank arm and pedal. sliding next to me when i finally come to a stop. Ridiculous. So now im in the market for some new (stronger) cranks.

    Another reason square taper sucks.

    But not really proof of clyde status, I did that when I was 130lbs in high school on a cannondale f600.

    Shimano SLX dual, cheap and tough.
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?
