    MTBR Old Pharts: Slartibartfast and The Sock (POV!)

    We ditched our respective munchkins for a bit and had a grand ol' time camping and riding in Tahoe for a few days last summer. It was just like old times...

    Cross post cause I didn't see this post before posting. So here goes.

    Sadly my riding days are over. My wrist is toast and the pain will not allow me to ride for more than a few miles at best. I am going to sell the old Turner Burner and move on.

    I have an original MTBR "Ol Pharts top cap on it. The original that DaleRider had fabbed before passing.

    So if you are an original Ol'Phart and want the cap let me know. Otherwise I'll see if Francis wants it.

    That is really too bad Jim. I still have a collage above my computer with photos from 24 hrs of Moab we did together in 2001. It was an awesome time. You should keep the cap as a great memory!?

    That's a great video edit. Nice job on those log rides. Tahoe is sooo beautiful and you captured it well.

    Nice to see Slarti and the Sock still getting after it. Does Chris still own the bike shop?

    Zilla, sorry to hear of your injuries. I can only imagine how hard it must be to not be able to do something you love. Best wishes.
