Go ahead and click like, Faust29! That was pretty witty of my old man!
Sorry, @herzalot! I haven't been on my computer all weekend....I've been out riding!
I currently have 5 functioning bikes. I enjoy riding all of them. They all have a different kind of enjoyment, but I feel better when I am riding them. I don't really like climbing with the Enduro or TT bike, but I love flat ground on the TT, or descending on the Enduro. Or the XC when I want to just haul ass. The roadie gets me to places far and wide right from my doorstep without having to plan anything. And the CX...
Well, the CX is just stupid.
That looks like the turn just past Pleasants Peak on the way to Motorway to me... But @mike doesn't get to that end of the mountain often?
That's crazy talk right there. Why ride when you can spend precious time typing pithy comments? Check your priorities!
C'mon man, cross training! Keyboard punching = brake lever control+simulated attack position; bounce ball chair = core strength+balance..
You know this!
Picking up mountain bike riding has been the best thing for me. ( Seriously ) I really enjoy this new-to-me activity. I love the outdoors and I like pushing my own personal limits ( which seem to be about 25 miles ** so far ) I bought a brand new Hightower 27+ with Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon 29'r Carbon 30's on the way. Look out 'cause soon I'll be the semi truck in the 1971 movie Duel with Dennis Weaver. ( Joke ) ** Have you ever been climbing a hill and saw someone behind you and thought " I don't want them to catch me- I must stay ahead ?" Well... that's me but I seem to get passed a lot.. by many.. but I'm working on it!
We're all either rabbits, or we chase rabbits. Or we do both, just at different times. It's not what you ride, it's why you ride. Keep chasing that goal. But more than anything else, have fun with it. Otherwise it's just work. And then it just sucks.
I ride so I don't Axe-murder everyone around me.
I'm with you! I absolutely love the smell of that stuff!
No wonder I like you.
