    How do you keep your bike so clean?

    Did you clean it up just for these photo's?

    Ha! I have that exact saddle bag on mine. I love that thing and it's out of the way and fits all my stuff including my camera, car keys and wallet. I added a water bottle holder yesterday.
    I wish my bike were green like yours(loves green) and that area you're in looks burmy and soft.

    Nice bike you have and it's nice to view the country from other aspects than the road.

    I have a couple trails here in WI that, after all this blasted rain, would handily devour any doubt to whether your bike was clean or not in a photoshoot. You are welcome to attend at any time...just shoot me an email before arrival.

    hullo carlos91...
    im in ft lauderdale, do most of my riding @ quiet waters but its so hot with no trees! been meaning to get down there & try amelia, is it really worth the...trek?
    anyway...it is niced to see that at least 1 other guy here besides me is still running with v-brakes. i was ready to swap to discs a while back but decided to stick with the calipers just so i could keep annoying my riding buds with them.

    Another V-Brake user here as well. It's probably definitely worth the trip to try Amelia. It is pretty shaded. As carlos91 said when you are within the trees it doesn't feel so bad.

    I'm trying for Tuesday or Wed. Not sure which one I'll be able to go yet. I'll let you know though. Carlos I lost your number. I just updated my iPhone to os4 and I lost all contacts I added since my last backup. Shoot me a pm or text with your # again.

    I suggest riding in the late afternoons. From 5 on. It gets cooler around 6 or 7 and there is still a lot of light until almost 8:30.

    What's up carlos. I'll probably hit up Amelia on Wed. I'm going spearfishing tomorrow and I'll probably take Tuesday to rest( I've been working this crazy night schedule). But should be good to go for Wednesday. Let me know if you are going.

    Sounds good, just let me know. Freedive spearfishing is my first passion, I try to make it out on the boat at least once a week. Weather permitting of course. Also, my bars should be hear Tuesday. The stem came in on Saturday, so maybe I can have my new set-up on for the ride.
