    A different kind of Bike Porn

    OK I got a new camera so I had to play. These are the kind of shots you don't see much. Kind of a "yes I ride my bike hard" or "no its not new" kind of thing. Feel free to join in and show your bikes ture personality.









    Yes that is a side wall gash that has been holding strong. A little shoo goo on the inside. Stans setup, no tubes.



    Thats my custom tire tread. Did it myself with a dremel.










    This goes with the patch on my glove from the other pic. The worn spot on the grip! I just rotate the grip to get a fresh spot to wear out.

    Nice! Good details of actual usage. I recently got in to the DSLR game myself. Watch that though, it's an expensive hobby. Make sure you stick to riding ;-).

    Very true, I keep eying some new lenses and that can become addictive and costly.

    Very nice DOF there. I am guess 85mm f/1.2? This is my computer that doesn't have an exif reader or I could determine the lens that way.

    Man I miss my DSLR. Have a G11 now and it's just not the same. Getting the 5DMk2 once I knock my wife up.

    Oh, the camera is a Nikon D7000. Glass used for these shots was the 50mm 1.4g. Since this is a DX, the 50mm acts like an 85mm.

    I've got the same lens on a D90. Super fast and great depth of field. It's almost hard to keep the subject in focus with that thing.

    a question about customizing your Ignitor tread. I have a worn pair of ignitors that need a bit of new life, what did you do and how did you do it?

    OK, I decided to play along. Here are a few pictures that I took today. I like to play with my camera and editing software, so i went with black and white for something different.

    Nice. Did you compare to the Canon D60?

    We're in the process of deciding which DSLR to go with, mostly for my wife. We've both had nice film cameras, but aren't sure if we'll go entry (Nikon D3100 or Canon T2i) or mid-level (D7000 or D60).

    Lots of capability... tough choice!

    definitely... i went through this whole bit recently too... ended up with a D90 and love it. i've always been partial to nikon sensors... something about the end product just grabs me more than anything else.
    canon blows nikon away for video, though.
    i'll post up some bike photos tomorrow.

    This game I can play. Time to dig up all the broken shyte I might still have. Meanwhile this is what I've come up with for now.



    Damn chrome spoils the minor wear marks by out shining everything.

    But this I'm quite proud of:



    Now, that's more like it and it's still functioning too. Can't beat a Sora (enough to kill it)!

    Ive done the entry level Canon thing with their Rebel stuff. When getting into DLSR more people get canons because of the features or name. Most people that make a switch from one name to the other go canon to nikon. Both make damn fine products, its a win win thing for sure. Canon strong points have always been numbers and features. The nikons have always been image quality and low noise.

    Twinracer I love that old XT 4 pot caliper - brings back memories from my early MTB days. The first MTB mag I ever bought reviewed those brakes and I thought those calipers looked like the best thing ever. They just look perfectly engineered.

    The 50mm is such a good lens to control depth of field when you need to. Good prime lens to have
