    Not Thread Worthy

    How about a place for random thoughts about biking that aren't worthy of their own thread...

    I will start: I rode my bike from the garage, around my neighborhood, without a helmet or spd's. It wasn't Epic, I didn't take pictures or map it out, but it was fun.

    I bought my first roadbike over the weekend off craigslist - for $600. Picked it up in boulder, put it in the back of my truck, and then my truck wouldn't start. How ironic.

    I would of just rode home (to Westminster) but my kids were with me.

    Sucks to have a budget for a bike and then have to spend more ($850 total) on auto repairs. Go figure. I could of purchased a lot nicer of a bike but instead have a car that runs, as it did prior to purchase.

    I can't complain, I have 2 bikes and my wife and kids have them as well.

    What will be interesting (for road) is going from a 4-5" full suspension 35lb bike as my do all - dirt, path, commute, beer getter and triathalon rig to a 21lb road bike with tires 30% the width. I'm soo used to the squish as I haven't ridden anything else the past decade.

    Another forum I am on has a random thread and it works really well for just bulls***ing. Good for non bike related interesting tidbits etc.

    The thread on ADVrider has almost 11,000 posts and over 700,000 views.

    They call it Rockies Regional randomness.

    I click on front range forum in my bookmark folder like I always do. I find a thread I want to read and go to right column where it has a thingy for last post. Just as I try to click on the thingy the page jumps up a half inch and I miss it. I have to wait until it stops and then click on it. This happens every f**cking time, you'd think I'd learn.

    I have only ridden TITS an average of once/year the past couple years.
    Hope to change that this year.

    That can be taken couple different ways.
    Both are sad.
    One is true.
    The other, not so much.

    I was going to write that I'm reading this thread while sitting on the crapper.

    But then I thought that would be too much information to share so I won't. Still what would I do without a mobile phone these days...



    Wait! What did I just write?

    Got a flat on the commute home, 1st day using the maxxis refuse puncture resistant tires. Apparently Kevlar can stop bullets, but not 3mm thorns. Fail.

    It wasn't cold but surprisingly warm (41F). But boy, was it windy! Springbrook felt like I was cycling into a 30-40mph headwind. I thought I could take advantage of it and get some good Strava times but it was a bust! The wind swirled based on the terrain. One moment you could be flying the next with only the slightest of turn it felt like you just cycled into a wall. There's nothing like averaging 4.5 mph cycling into a gale when you can usually zip along a 12mph - it makes an otherwise mundane ride into a challenge!

    Yesterday I went to pull up the handlebars to lift the front wheel over a log and I injured my right pectoral minor muscle. It has never happened before and it hurts. It made me ride so slow today

    I bought a cool old heater for the man cave / bike shop / garage. Provides some nice ambiance for consuming and fixing sh#t.

    Not even close

    No you must be riding a ss rigid 29 and someone must witness it in order to be considered cool.
