    Nothing bike-related, just beer- and cash-related. 🍺 💰

    Nope! Not complaining! 🎅😀🍻

    Oh, plus a buddy treated me to dinner and beers at Out-Of-Bounds brewery in Folsom. Goood times!

    My Christmas present is a huge piece of rare beef. I only eat meat 5 days a year, and this is it!

    Oh and these grips. I always buy the cheapest color. My bike is a hodgepodge of mismatched colors.

    wife got me a Peleton bike. well, she god me a piece of paper that says she'll get me a peloton bike (if I want it.) I'm a bit torn, candidly. I feel like I don't get out to ride enough as it is...so I'm not sure how I feel about riding indoors.

    That happened to a guy I know. Got a Peleton and while his riding went way up overall, his real riding went way down. Q

    $2k for a trainer is a lot of money! IMHO obviously.

    Did you get the 27.5 or 29er? How are you liking it?

    Was really tempted to put one on my Christmas list, but I was able to resist, for now . . .

    When I'm tight on time, which is almost always, I ride my trials bike for 1/2 hour. It's a pretty good workout and it's upped my MTB game big time.

    I like the trainer because I don't have time for 3 rides during the week. I can put in the work during the week and just have fun when I go out to ride.

    If it's outside or ride a trainer probably wouldn't recommend it.

    I got a transition bikes jersey and hoodie, a pair of Troy lee Sprint pants, and a Jenson gift card. Can never go wrong with Jenson. I also ordered myself a Garmin Edge 520 computer on Amazon the other day. And after watching my brother receive a USWE Ranger 3 hydration pack, I just ordered one for myself. The 4 point harness is incredibly comfortable. Will be mostly for riding moto, but Iím sure Iíll get out on a few long rides soon that will be better with a pack.

    I got a Osprey pack, packable air pump, GoPro white, and some mounts. From by boyfriend. Have already been out trying things minus the pump lol Must be all mental because I can make it up the obstacles that trip me up when the cameras on. 😂 the weather was also screwing with me. Got all dressed out the door and it started hailing a block from the house. Turned around changed back in the my Christmas pajamas and plopped on the couch and wouldnít you know it the sun came back out so I got dressed again.

    OneUp EDC high volume pump and multi tool, OneUp frame straps and Ergon saddle.

    Ditched the Camelbak and frame bag for a water bottle, and everything else self contained with the OneUp kit.

    Letís see the Xmas bike loot

    Bought myself a very nice and expensive 20 degree down sleeping bag. Just over a pound and seems like the temp rating is close. Using it on the Arizona Trail as I write this. Itís been in the 30ís at night and will be in the 20ís later this week so a good test. Also sent my Pike off to Dirtlabs for a custom tune on the damper, much better for a lighter rider like myself. Biggest present was just to take some time off for myself. Good bike Christmas.

    Yeh I used to do a few of the major group rides with Zorg. But then I turned 21 and spent my 20s partying, traveling, and building my career. So I stopped riding other than the occasional weekend ride. 2019 is a big ride year for me.

    We got one last year. My wife rides it 5 - 7 days a week and loves it. Sometimes I am torn and have a hard time picking it over a ride outside. However, if you are short on time or just looking for a good workout it is hard to beat; for me it has been the fastest way to get back in shape. I mostly do the power zone and climb rides.

    They are as reliable, if not more so than any pedal Iíve tried. I do tend to service mine maybe 2, 3 times a year, just a clean up and fresh grease on the axles. Pedalling Innovations offer very cost effective rebuild kits too for when you need to, but look after them and theyíll last a long time.

    I spent my bike savings on a new frame that fits me properly Over-forking my old frame by 40mm had reduced the reach by such a huge amount that I managed to do an endo while climbing out of the saddle on my last ride!

    Brand-X HT-01. Great deal for a QR hardtail frame that doesn't have old-school XC geometry. And now I won't be restricted to straight 1+1/8 replacement forks if I can't repair my Minute

    Cool. Looks like great weather for you, I canít tell where thatís at,if youíve seen one cactus ......

    Iím at 275 this morning in Florence. Spent a day in Tucson just hanging out and now on a dirt loop around SE Phoenix. Will be hitting San Tan, Hawes, Usery and Lost Dutchman trails today with urban bike trail/canal trail connects. Nearly no roads with cars on it. Should be around 400-425 when done. May head to South Mountain without my gear before I leave. Great Christmas route, though the relative humidity was so high last night it was as wet in my tent as it was outside. Everything will have to come out later. The bag has been perfect!

    I dunno, it's been about a year, I think? I have such big feet, it's nice to have such a large (i.e. huge) platform that my feet can dance on. I can pick 'em up, set 'em down and more than likely, my feet will hit a sweet spot.

    I'm not a hucker, so I don't miss the locked-in feeling of the clipless. I do like being able to bail quickly if necessary, but I haven't had the occasion to try that, yet.

    Very cool!

    Did you have a hole in the top of the sprite bottle and how did you fix the tube inside the bottle to the actual jet wash?

    These are worx attachments that fit without mods. Yes, put a hole in to prevent pressure vacuum. Wish I had a better, sturdier bottle though.

    I experimented with a 2l coke bottle yesterday, first without a hole (squish!) then with one but having to hold the gun upside down was awkward so I will have to look at that attachment.

    I have a 10l VW add blue bottle that Iím using with the supplied long white hose which works well.

    Youíve got the gift, or is it a curse, lol? Last year weíd had no rain for 7 months or so when I decided to sign up for a Bronson demo. Wouldnít you know, it rained a ton the day before so my demo was cancelled. A year goes by and I decide to sign up for a Ripmo demo. I even warned the Ibis employee that I just blessed Santa Cruz with rain by reserving a bike demo... sure as $hit, my Ripmo demo was cancelled due to rain. Wonder if it would happen if I demo a Huffy from Kmart?

    It's $200 for the ecosystem.

    But since it's your lucky day, you can have it for $70. The refurbs are good since people expect a 2000 psi powerwasher and are sometimes disappointed.

    I am not one for booties, but my feet get numb in sub 40 degrees. I got some seal Skins Socks. I tried out hiking version, cuz I like fleece knickers. These socks were better with less numbing to feet. I have the higher cut on order. Best cold weather sock I have encountered yet. Hope that helps.

    Is the Fox box in the back what the fork came in? Or did Santa mistakenly spill another fork from his bag as he scurried up the chimney?
