    MTBR Cribs/Shops:

    Sorta like "MTV Cribs" but for MTB'ers.

    I'm legally disabled and on a fixed income, so, I have a pretty small crib and rent a room in a house (well, actually, an extended spare room thats an addition to the garage - thus the brick walls). On the plus side, my landlord is 420 friendly (the main reason I chose to live here) and I can grow as much as I want up to the legal limit in California. One other reason I chose to live here is my very cheap rent, my cheap rent helps keep me stocked up on decent bikes and parts (example: I can buy a Thomson seatpost instead of the cheap Origin8 knock-off - although I have both).

    Something most of you dont know, I was homeless from Jan 1, 2009 to Dec 1, 2011...(almost three years)

    ...Most folks need/want to get off the streets immediatly, I actually left my house where I was living to live on the streets in 2009 to be homeless because, well, lets just say I did and wanted to do an extreme ammount of "soul searching" or "spiritual searching" (and I did, and it was very successful and am happy with the results). I am very patient, so while I was soul searching, I wasnt really to concerned as much with getting a place right away as most folks are (example, longest I've ever been out-of-doors was 6 months - so three years is quite a stretch). Bikes were a very large part of it too, well, for one, because I was living on my bike everyday. I built my SS (single speed) 1992 G.T. Richter 8.0 just for that pourpose. And that bike has served me almost flawlessly and still does today, VERY TOUGH BIKE!!!

    Anyway, like I said, its small, I sleep on the couch, but so what, I'm happy and I like it, the roomates are ok, everything works out.

    DVD's my first collection, over 150 DVD so far (no cable here [yet] - I need a new computer, mine died - this back-up PC is Pentium 3 running XP SP3 on less than 200mb of memory - (yeah, that shouldnt even be possible).

    So, do you got a nice crib, or even a nice "bike shop" in your garage, pics, postem' up...

    Do you have a window? It looks like a small space but I'm pretty sure its a law that rentals have to have an escape route besides the entry door.(fire code). But anyways at least you're not out on the streets.

    really?
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.
