    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 feel like participating but don't have anything profound or useful to say in a non-thread worthy thread....

    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.

    That's okay coxroach.

    Since we are confessing, I don't always ride the center of the trail.

    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?
