Where did you get that? I think all bicycles are cool and have stated so here more than once. I don't think I have ranted against much here. Hustler does that and I mock him for being a high end bike snob that hasn't yet earned the right to pass judgement on anything bicycle related.

What I gathered from some of your previous posts is that you thought spending discretionary income on bicycles for purely recreational purposes, had no point. In fact I believe there was more than one rant as such.

Thus, when you voluntarily chose to ride a bicycle for fun and fitness and presumably be social with others, it made me laugh. Imagine that you had so much fun that you thought it warranted a trail specific rear tire. Then maybe a different shaped handlebar, so you know, you could have more fun. The very thought!

Popped up on facebook, thought it was funny.

"Doctor Sweaty Ride" is actually pretty fitting.

My bike is clearcoated, but calling it grey nets me "Doctor Whiz Wagon", which is just silly.

I really have the urge to build something like this for my next bike.




A kind of trail hardtail with somewhere between 120-140mm travel, and I want one in 650b flavor.

I resisted a full-suspension bike for so long. Then I got one. Now when I get on a hard tail it's just that, rear jarring that reduces traction and smooth pedaling. While some trails it makes sense I don't ride those much and or use a road bike. What I want is an affordable sub 25lb medium travel full suspension bike. I'd like to ride what you've shown there and try the combo of long travel front hardtail with 650 wheels. I've actually never ridden a 29 or 650 yet - boo to me

Just saw 1x11 for first time today. Pretty cool idea, with sophisticated rear derailer for chain control and 10-40 or so cassette. I was expecting a 11-34 with standard components and just removing extra chainrings.

on a sort of inter related note: At this weekends Super Miata race at Sonoma I gained us cyclists access to the track after hours. So me, Andrew, Sonny and probably a few others are going to do a few laps on our road bikes. pics to follow

Yeah, i agree. I would not replace my FS bike with a hardtail, this would be in addition to my FS for sure. Something about the simplicity of these things gets me, and I think it would be fun one some of the flowy singletrack I ride around here, then I have the FS for the more gnarly bits.

Thanks.

Going to ask some bike shops now. Mine fell out again the other day. So annoying.

They aren't tight enough in my bars.

From Sonoma this weekend. Andrew kicked our asses. Hairy pale legs/ = no actual time on bike in last 6 months + T2 into a 15mph headwind = ouch. That's Sonny on the right.
