lol

If I had a full-suspension I'd probably end up locking the rear out most of the time anyway. That first pic of me (I'm the one in the black shirt) in Utah was the only sort of ride where I was glad to have a rear shock. Just depends what you ride on and where. Most of the time I'm on singletrack.

Mountain biking shorts are a must.

Agreed, on flowy singletrack I usually have my propedal on, but I like to be able to use my bike for more "all mountain" riding as well. Stuff that you typically have to hike up and ride down, etc. We have really rocky terrain around here. Nothing wrong with a hardtail though, I really wan't to add a nice one to the stable. Nothing will get you riding better and picking better lines than a hardtail.

My neighbor has some carbon race bike that was used to win some big race, but I don't remember what it was. I'll try to get a pic of it next time I'm over there.

Another good mtb trail is "bull of the woods" and you end up on gold hill. It's epic, you overlook red river from the Taos side, a view you can only get via hiking a mountain or flying in a plane.
Hiked back in 2006. The mint choco-chip incident was in Ruidoso on Tuesday.

I'm glad I bought a HT bike, but after the riding I did where the "intermediate"trails have mutliple 4' gaps and ****-ton of moguls, I'd have a dually.

Here's the CAAD9 I've had for like 7 years. I've rode the **** out of it and it continues to be a great bike. I've also got a 70s Fuji 10 speed road bike that I ride every day at school. Cannondale stays at home so it doesn't get **** on by drunk college kids and weather outside.







The Fuji actually rides so solidly that sometimes I don't know which I prefer, until I ride over 20 miles and then it's quite clear.

Last of the USA Cannondales (not necessarily a bad thing). Are you under 5' tall?

Lol, when that picture was taken and I first got the bike I was probably just over 5'. Now I am still not tall, around 5' 5" so it works fine.

The frame is pretty small, I think 58cm, so the seat is a good bit higher now. You should see my gargantuan Fuji as well, I've had it even longer.

That looks like a 53 or smaller.

Poverty bikes REPRESENT

The picture is a bit old. But it has wrap on the Tri-bars, the brake cable is trimmed and capped and the chain is properly tensioned. Other than that pretty much the same.

Got the frame for 50 bucks from a guy who bought it on amazon and got the wrong size lol.

Also i don't ride fixed gear, just single speed. No scarf needed.

my old frame was a windsor The hour. But it was a 61cm which was too big for me at 6'2". I only have a 30" inseam and I have a 78" reach so finding a bike for my body is tough.

58cm with a 0 setback seat-post and 140cm stem. Can you send me a link to a single crank for my SM600? The crank is bent and it has an MTB triple don't need.

Yeah 58 is what the bike above is. I think i have a 120cm stem, longest they had at the bike shop. Works fine for the tri-bars, If i was running standard drops I would probably want a longer stem.

Any standard square taper crank should work for an sm600 right? Just need to make sure you get a straight chain line to the rear cog, so you have to check the width on the bottom bracket. Just depends how much money you want to spend.

You really don't know what you are missing.

I'll still use my single speed for commuting in town.
The recumbent will be just for the bike path and the more out there rides like the Red Rock loop and Mt Charleston.
