    We've officially run out of things to talk about

    When the fart thread is the only thing going, you've officially run out of topics to discuss.

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Bodily excretion threads were all the rage when the OC was created. On any given day you could expect to see a least one or two fart/poop threads at the top of the page.

    We've come full circle...

    Makes me wonder who here is visiting their websites. They wouldn't keep posting if they weren't getting something out of it.

    Might as well post it here.

    I'm going out to Vegas tomorrow for a 12 day business trip. I'm renting a bike tomorrow and will be riding at Red Rock. I'm trying to decide how to handle hydration. The high in Vegas tomorrow is only supposed to be 66F. So here are the options I've come up with:

    1) take Camelbak - not sure I will have room for it with 12 days worth of clothes, laptop, etc. I've done this trip once a year for the past few years so I know packing is pretty tight.
    2) just take hydration bladder and stuff it in the backpack I'll have - it is a Novara commuter backpack, big enough for my laptop in its bag to fit so pretty big
    3) take some water bottles - I can stuff socks in them in my suitcase if I need to (yum)

    Looks like I'll only have 3-4 hours to ride by the time I get there, check in at Mandalay Bay and then get to the bike rental/trails.

    So which way to go with the hydration?
    I'm thinking at 66 degrees in the desert for a few hours, I won't need a whole lot of water. But maybe that's my East coast thinking?
    Also thinking rattlesnakes won't be out at that temperature. Wouldn't mind seeing one but would prefer not to see one in the middle of the trail at the last moment, I'm not much of a bunny hopper.

    Chaz, I'm going with option #3.

    In the meantime, here's some humor to pass the boredom of talking about farts.

    Can't you just buy bottles when you get there? I'm thinking there's gotta be some kind of water or Gatorade type of drink that'll fit in a bottle cage.

    Also; you might announce your trip in the Nevada forum if you want to ride with someone. Nevada - Mtbr.com

    There's a lot of cool peeps out that way that post here on mtbr. I've ridden with a few out there.

    that's what i was thinking.

    on another subject, it snowed here over night ~3". I went out on the fatbike this morning and hit some trails. all was going well until i attempted to drop in on a trail that's super steep. it was maybe a little reckless, but i've been doing it all winter. I've only wiped out one time.

    i don't think i got 10 feet and i lost the front tire. i went down awkwardly and was heading head first at a tree. I pretty much landed on my face, couple little bleeding scratches on my chin. I broke my visor too.

    I got to my feet and knew there was something wrong with my finger but it didn't hurt. i grabbed it and it was super crooked so either broken or seriously dislocated. i gave it a good hard pull and POP!! A loud noise confirmed that it was dislocated. i actuated it a couple times and it seemed ok (all with gloves on) so i was hoping it wasn't broken too. i gathered myself, dusted off the snow, grabbed my bike and tried to get to a spot where i could remount. that's about the time when the pain set in.

    that sucker started hurting. I limped home doing middle finger braking for the remaining 4-5 miles. Now my finger is HUGE! like super swollen multi-colored sausage.

    Hope it heals fast, I've got a ride in the morning...

    Managed to fit a couple of water bottles in my suitcase, didn't even have to stuff anything in them. Using a different suitcase this year and i guess it has more room. I'm not sure what time I'll make it out to the bike rental place so kind of hard to coordinate with anyone. Maybe next year will work out with more time.

    I dislocated a finger just over a year ago, playing basketball with my son. It took a lot longer to feel normal than the doctor said. I noticed it mostly when I was riding, it would get stiff and feel weird curled around the grip and I'd end up riding with it sticking straight out. It was my pinky so it didn't affect braking.

    I consulted my single speeders trailside medical book before taking any action. it clearly stated "Re-align body part as close as possible to the original position. Grab and pull. Carry on."

    Funny you mentioned this. I just installed two new tubes and two new tires and a new chain. I'm ready to come out of biking retirement. It's been months.

    He's stuck in whatever year his bike came out, a fatbike will never happen. You know how you see old people wearing clothes from like 20-30 years ago because they refuse to accept anything new, it's like that.

    Right! Just like that.

    Onespeed, to answer your question I just stopped. No explanation, I've been mountain biking since 1991. I took a break here and there the last couple of years. This last break was the longest ever. I've got Tuesday and Wednesday off of this week with great weather, hopefully. Colorado Front Range is awesome most of the time, especially in the spring. Hopefully the forecast holds. I know once I hit the dirt again it's on. I'll be addicted again. I hate crowds and rarely ride weekends because of it. My job allows for some mid week all day rides. That's my thing, out in the mountains, by myself shredding and taking in the solitude of what this sport was born on.

    I'll post up vids soon when it happens.

    It's a little scary that doctors aren't that far from that in a lot of cases.

    So you probably saw my ride report in Did you ride today. I carried one bottle on the bike and one in my jersey (that was annoying) and with it being in the mid 60s, mostly overcast, wind gusts in access of 60mph (per the news this morning) and sprinkling a bit, I only drank about a half bottle.

    Onespeed, yeah, that's about how my finger looked. My dislocation was kinda weird, it wasn't sticky out in an odd direction, it was pulled out and sitting next to where it should have been but still parallel to the direction it is supposed to be. I just kind of reactively grabbed it and pulled it back into position. I ended up going to the ER that evening as it had swollen and when I checked online they said it warranted an ER visit. But I think I sat around waiting a long time and then laid around on a gurney for even longer and then saw a doctor for all of 30 seconds and they just taped it to the neighboring finger to stabilize it and said to keep it that way for awhile.

    nice. instead of taping it i decided to do 40 miles on my cross bike today. I hammered hills for a few hours, it was sweet. still using the middle finger for braking as my index finger is so swollen i couldn't bend it if i wanted. it actually feels pretty good unless i bump it or something. I'm sure it'll be fine, just needs a little time to heal. for now i'm enjoying the multiple shades of purple. it's evolving like a Kaleidoscope.

    Yeah, I shot a nail through my finger with the framing nailer, went right through the knuckle. The boss's wife made me go have it looked at and it was indeed broken. They gave me one of those aluminum braces, and no pain meds. What a waste of time.

    Have we talked about arm chairs yet?

    Why are some chairs arm deficient, yet others are arm abundant?

    Not to take away from JACKL's paper cut but I'm more into a comfy recliner with a footrest that pops out. I had a nice special ordered dark maroon leather one that cost me $900. Fell on hard times and my X threw it on Craigslist 6 months after I purchased it, we had too much furniture as it was. That was my Al Bundy chair.

    That chair would make anyone limp-wristed.

    I'm trying to get the top 2 spots on the OC main screen if even for a brief moment. However I don't want to post unless I have something important to say, like the above. Not easy. I might try jotting down a few important thoughts, then quickly posting them in 2 separate topics. But the topics keep changing.

    Ok, good luck with that. Hope some a$$holes doesn't come around and screw that up for you.

    no, i rode a stationary trainer with one arm twice. it actually stopped hurting after day 5-6.

    really though, yeah. it took 4-5 days before i could get an appointment with an Ortho, then another 4-5 days till i could get in for surgery. fun huh?

    It was fun to make, and it's a rad pic!

    After I made it I thought to myself; I shoulda used the Hawaiian Punch font!

    You've probably noticed the OC is a bit different these days, it's been goin through some changes. The cool kids are posting ride reports in this thread now: http://forums.mtbr.com/passion/did-y...ay-988566.html

    Because Shimano changed up their Hollowtech cups on the newer stuff, and the BBT-19 doesn't fit them.
