    welcome back bro and thanks. My brother and law is over there now and I hope he makes it back. He wrote us the other day and said he has lost alot of men and he hopes to see us again. That realy freaked me out.
    I'm poor, broke,busted,disgusted and can't be trusted!




    Every man belieives in something and I believe I'll have one more beer.

    Cya,

    Thanks for doing the heavy lifting, Rob. I wish everybody who calls the USA "home" would come back. Back to stay.

    You ain't missed much. Here in the Land of the Free, we have so much that we pretty much take it for granted, so not much happens. Just another day in paradise, I guess.

    Do check out the MTBR Oregon board for an MBO (Mountain Bike Oregon) photo thread -- MBO was one of the best events I've ever attended (and I live here!). Everybody just plain had too much fun -- 300 peeps from all over the country. Come next year if your leave-time allows, me friend.

    Brad and Jen split. I guess they did that long ago though.

    Everybody has gone back to cantilevers and 1.8 or 1.95 tires with rigidness up front. I hear the 1.95s take out the "harshness". But seriously, lots of people are getting new frames....I am getting rather p!ssy about that one.

    Welcome back!

    Welcome back and again with the thanks. Always lookin forward to pics n stuff. you in Texas? Wash-a-ton?

    New stuff? my fav new tires are the Continental Diesels. 2.5" of fast rolling blackness. The Vulture still flies and is still my favorite bike. Thinkin 'bout a Rush (Cannondale). Local trails are still the BEST!

    Take some time off, its on me!

    Let the bike ride the trail, you ride the bike.
    Look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go.

    Thanks Rob..

    even though I don't know you personally, from a fellow American and singlespeeder, glad your'e back home safe. Thanks for serving your country, and making it possible for the rest of us to enjoy the things we love (like riding). Enjoy being home and go for a ride!
