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.
I was on a Taco Tue dinner date last night. I had just gotten off a ride so of course we were talking about bikes. She was pandering to my heart strings by saying she wants a bike. When I told her I wouldn't trust my life or mental peace of safely getting off a trail to a bike that cost less than $500. Her expression said it all, that no bike is worth $500. Let alone what I paid for my bike, she rather the used Honda.
The waitress comes over and my date compliments her figure. Waitress goes into how she just had liposuction and a tuck. My date gets excited asking for referrals. She goes on to say she has $10k in the bank for her dream of a fat transfer to her ass and a tummy tuck... WTF
Move on! Bikes are less maint.
But were the Tacos good???
Good tacos, and great Micheladas made it so the evening wasn't a total wash.
I looked into liposuction but the cost of disposal in my case was too high!
Relocate the fat to your ass and and you wont have to wear a chamois anymore.
Not true, I still need to wear one!
Where do you find these people?
Its nice being married for 18 years ...
Eww! True story??
I ride because it’s my drug, my therapy(burn off the crazy), my playtime, and my escape from the real world, fitness is just a cool side effect for me. Riding makes me stronger, but also reveals my weaknesses. When I’m solo I work through a lot of crap in my head, when I’m with other riders its fun to chat, share, cut up and even compete a little. Mtn biking can be very empowering and extremely humbling at times. I wouldn’t be who I am without it
Have I mentioned that I LOVE to mtn bike and I love imbtrails?! thanks @Mikie
Is this what dating is like nowadays?
Dating in LA is such a clusterfuck. Its like fishing off a dock with nothing but carp around. Loads if bites wanting a free meal, but nothing worth taking home.
Are you suggesting we start a Dating Forum on imtbtrails? Well we certainly could not call it eHarmony! Everyone would be up in arms thinking... oh nevermind!
That would be an abuse of power.
