    7 Point pics

    Just a couple to get started, and only one easy trailride so far, so not much in the way of impressions just yet, but here it is:

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Wait ..wait .. wait .. What the hell kind of pedals on there? Not Egg Beaters on a FR bike. Just some thing I wouldn't do. If you like it like that make it known... WHY?

    Nice, except for DW link..................................LOL! Just kidding...definitely not going in that direction, as evidenced by the prior debate. That's a good looking setup. What kind of seatpost is that?...looks like a pivot below the clamping head...maybe just the picture. On the pedals...well, a matter of taste...though maybe I'd go with Candy or Mallet models for clipless.

    Noticed that right after I posted the pics. Did a trail ride yesterday and my wife wanted to try the mallets. First uphill she stopped for hikers and smacked her shin while trying to get moving again. Probly a safe bet I get the mallets back w/o too much convincing. Maybe try a set of candy's for her bike instead.

    Tonight will be more of a real test ride at Dakota Ridge, yesterday was more to test out my shifting/ brakes and get my wife out on her mtb. Gotta take baby steps if someday I want her to be a hucker.

    Seen a few breakages? I've no loyalty to em, but they're light and came w/ the frame. Rumor is Thompson is coming out w/ a compatible post, too.

    Not as many parts on there from the Titus as there is from Todd's SGS partsbin. My hardtail is almost completely the Titus rebuilt w/ a Steelhead frame, tho.
    Sounds like me and Todd are carpooling down Monday, can't wait!

    stand up and reach for em

    stand up on your bike and reach for your levers - your hands should (well, mine like to, anyway ) continue on the same angle as your forearms. It looks a bit exaggerated in that picture, but the levers are set so that for downhilling my wrists aren't at crazy angles to my arms. More natural positioning equals less forearm fatigue.
    I never understand how people can ride bikes w/ the levers parallel w/ the ground and not have wrist issues, unless they're riding behind the seat the whole way....
