    You would have more scars of you had more gears, suspension and disc brakes.



    Not to mention more broken parts...
    Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic...

    Including body parts probably

    I know, I know my scars are of the long days in the saddle variety, nothing spectacular. I figure there'll be better (or more interesting) scars to be shared. I talked to someone today who broke his brand new cf frame in three places after slamming into a log unexpectedly. Cut his knee on the broken top tube as he went down but that's it to his person, nice scar though

    Hey, I don't mean to hijack your thread or anything, but I'm going to anyways. How do you like that rear tire of yours? I've been eyeing a set of those for a while but haven't heard any real beta on them from anyone that's used them extensively.

    A friend of mine loves them.

    I'm not quite as enamored as he is but they grip well in turns, roll fast and seem durable enough. I may flip mine to get better climbing traction for when I stand and pedal. I think I liked the Ignitor better.

    I have a WTB Weirwolf on the front that I really like.

    Done this year? Hardly. But I have broken the same bike twice in one year. I really really hope the new one doesn't experience the same fate.





    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    I think I talked you into buying that tire (crossmark, yes?), and I rode it during the VT--but then I rolled it up and put a rubber band around it. I ran weirwolves front and rear for my last desert journey and they're still on my Lenz. But I'm running nevegal front/rampage rear on my SS.

    The crossmark is OK, but not in the top 5 I'm sorry to say.

    Not a whole lot around here, couple of dérailleur's, a really nasty pair of gloves, a chainring that's turning into a bashring, and a pair of pedals long past repair. Although, it only cost's 20 bucks for a bearing rebuild kit, so as long as the axles last I'm just saving weight right? Not a bad year really, the lack of funds is making it easy to resist upgrade-itis. Although the 5 powerlinks are sort of gumming up my shifting...

    Now see, if you rode a BMX bike gloveless, you wouldn't encounter these problems

    Doh! Are you sure it was me? And I am guilty of using my iPod quite extensively while riding this weekend.

    See what you miss if you use a stupid iPod on a ride - friends! Lesson learned.

    Sweet! I finally threw away the pair of gloves I had used all season, they had holes in the palms and the fingers were unraveling.

    You're telling me. I need to learn how to ride a bike before I even start learning to be smooth.

    Add a bent non-driveside Gravity Gap crank, two blown freewheels, two broken middle rings, a rear rotor bent to the spokes, and an Avid Code master cycliner to the list above. I'll keep adding as them keep coming back from my memory.
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.
