    My wife loves to shop and everytime she goes I am right there with her I am pretty much with my wife 24/7 we even work together. but other than that she really doesn't have many hobbies. She scrapbooks every six months...

    My wife knew i was obsessed with bikes when she married me and was happy with that being part of who i am.She and i are now divorced,one of the reasons being that i was always out on my bike .Strange how these things work.

    Steve, you mean the cheesy big grin and the thumbs up didn't give away it was TIC



    BTW TIC = Tongue In Cheek and BTW = By The Way, just thought I would clarify.


    WTF, yes, Why The Face?

    I know, I need to go for a ride but home alone with three kids, I'm stranded, or stuck

    bought my gf a shiny, powder blue kona lisa and she rides with me every like 3rd ride...got her clipless pedals and we slowly work on her skills when we go together, otherwise she loves me to go out and enjoy what is really the only hobbie other than video games that i have....

    when i asked her why shes all for me going out, its because when i come home from a 20k ride i am happy, and then we can go out together and do the things she likes...+ i kinda miss her while im gone, so i appreciate her more when i get home...

    dude that's awesome there is another Buell rider out there on this forum!

    but back on topic-my wife likes that I have a hobby, she will come with from time to time, and does a little road biking too. I never thought that she was that into it until yesterday-when she decided she was going to do a century ride (and did it!) by herself... never having ridden more than 30 miles at a time before.... with no training! I think I have a kindred spirit there....

    Tie them up, gag 'em, and keep them locked in the basement works best.


    The key to any marriage is compromise. So if I want to miss half the day biking, I'll repay with a dinner & a movie, etc.

    I get tired of being ordered out to ride with her, or xc ski in winter, almost on a daily basis. I feel I've earned my rest and I don't want to spend my money on her bike. Watch out for those younger women who like to ride, you may get more than you bargained for!

    This thread is about mountain biking, not your sex life.

    This is true.

    I have to put out first.

    What does she say when you want to go on an all day epic or all weekend?
    The same thing as some of the others- "Can you check the tire pressures on my bike and load it in the truck?"

    Wow. I've heard a lot of claims like that, but I don't know if I've ever actually seen a low 10 second street car. Sounds like pictures might be in order.

    In 1989 I took my gf to Moab to show her how cool it is to ride on slickrock. She loved it so much she decided she would keep me around awhile. 21 years later she still loves it as much as I do. Everyday I thank the good lord for being able to have a shared passion. After reading these posts it just reaffirms how lucky I have been. To the OP I would urge you try again to get your wife out on a bike, even if it is on a paved path of some kind. Something very easy and gentle. Explain how much fun it is for you and that you want her to share in your riding. Then do something she likes. Hope it works out for you. Good luck.
    Ride the bike.
