One of my work buddies that I occasionally ride and lift weights with got lyme disease some time back. It gave him a rough way to go, but he has been working hard and thankfully seems to have regained a lot of his fitness. It was a long road for him ... more »

You certainly are right about bikes and parts getting harder to find. I've still been having decent luck finding what I need for parts, albeit at higher prices than normal sometimes. Like you say, if only we had all known. Hopefully if nothing else a

Like the others say, I would be more worried about someone taking the bike from the car than what people at work might think. I worked a district courthouse one year and would laugh to myself at how out of place my car looked in the lot. It was like, ... more »

Thanks guys. Spent a few minutes yesterday practicing bunnyhops over an old skateboard. Tried a couple manuals, but then got chased inside by some rain. I'll get after it some more tonight. It felt good to be on the bmx and I want to get in the habit ... more »

Added reply in a thread When ordering new tires 7/20/2020 2:40 PM

I wonder if to some extent the big back tire on the motorcycles is for looks as much as anything else. The back tire has always been a little bigger than the front, and needs to be for reasons mentioned above, but bikes over the last 30, and especially ... more »

Nice build. I like those bars. I know 4 piece bars aren't everyone's favorite, but I like the way those T1's look.

Haven't been on the forum much lately, but I have to say this thread has been a great read. Gave me the inspiration I needed to finish putting my Fit VHS back together. I'm looking forward now to giving the road bike some rest and getting some time in ... more »

Added reply in a thread Any 50+ racers on here? 3/18/2020 12:47 AM

Yeah, not much of a racing scene here. I started last year. Hadn't really done it before. I had been doing some trail riding and thought the track looked fun. I showed up for a practice just for the hell of it and got hooked. I'm 32, but we have a lot ... more »

There's some names in here I hadn't thought of in a while. Panza put up a Baltimore video this year. He's not always my favorite either, but it was cool to see one of the well knowns riding here.

This i what I like to do. I work night shift and get off in the mornings, so I can do things during the day when the normal folks are working or going to school. I do my street riding in the city on weekend mornings when almost no one is out and I go ... more »

Added reply in a thread Trails are scary 11/14/2019 11:11 AM

You ain't kidding. I fall often, usually when I'm doing something silly and let the bike out from under me. Usually no big deal because I wear pads and a full face. A few weeks ago I was trying a double I had never cleared before and was so focused on ... more »

Added reply in a thread working manual muscles 11/12/2019 4:53 PM

Short answer is don't do it if it hurts. Your knee will tell you if it's a problem. The difficulty of the exercise, and the level of danger it potentially poses will vary greatly with your body weight, your strength and the weight you can carry, and ... more »

Added reply in a thread Trails are scary 11/11/2019 7:34 PM

I've gotten into some trail riding and dirt jumping myself this year. It's definitely a different skill set from what you use on the street. The adrenaline rush is in fact great and hasn't worn off one bit for me as of yet. I'm also lucky enough to have ... more »

Added reply in a thread working manual muscles 11/10/2019 6:58 PM

That's pretty much the long and short of it. The occasional day off is definitely important. I do weight lifting workouts and as part of my assistance work I do a rotation of various hand/ forearm work. Currently I rotate through five exercises, one ... more »

Easy PARtner. Sarcasm and humor are sometimes lost in translation between words and text. Some folks are PARtial to their own brand of humor and not everyone may readily PARtake in yours.

Given the tendencies of today's youth, that'd be about par for the course.

Merrit Ft1’s fit in this category as well. I got a pair in 2.25 in anticipation of riding some dirt myself. Haven’t gotten to ride them as much as I’d like yet, but so far I like them. Albes lists them in 2.35 also. I had Faf 2.25’s before and they were ... more »

Another positive for Upgrade001. He was pleasant to communicate with. Parts are as he described and he shipped them fast.
