    Just keep going in where there is no sign. Pleed ignorance it busted. Ignorance is bliss, so be happy. May not be a perfect but the young one will love it! 😄 Later,

    I drank a 5hr Energy drink once and rode my bike. Am I in trouble? Just asking. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Do You Smoke? Marketing FAIL #113880

    I’m IN! Will they pick us up? 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Do You Smoke? Marketing FAIL #113874

    Maybe a full figured MTB star would be ok? I’ll fake the smoke part but will really drink a beer. $6000.00 I’m in. Hope they have a wide angle lens. 😄 Later,

    You got it, the bike fell and the pup didn’t. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Full Suspension easier to ride??? #113817

    I’m a hardtail kind of guy. I’ve tried rear suspention in the old days and demoed a new dual suspention 29er. Nothing repeat nothing climbs or comes off a corner like a hardtail. When riding a dual suspended 29er I rode in pro-pedal most the time to avoid the monkey f***ing a foot ball suspention bob. The 29 hardtail is easier on the small chop and minor ruffage. If it gets too rough just upshift and strand up through the ruffage as always. Suspention is necessary downhill no doubt. For me the hardtail is the single track weapon of choice due to it’s climbing ability. On downhill I use my diameter to help over come the need to seat bounce twice on the down hill, carving the corners are faster anyway. 😄 Later,

    Oh yeah you don’t have to ask, What’s that noise when I pedal?

    in reply to: Line for Wife #113843

    Honey, I trying to make up my mind, mountain bike riding or the shoe show, What do you think? 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Diamonback is the top of the line #113772

    Wanna buy a used car? Just asking. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Pro MTB teams lose sponsorship thanks to Armstrong doping #113742

    Sounds like it may end up The Red Bull MTB series or Miller Lite MTB series. We could wear weird fake hair on or helmets and become The Donald Trump Hairspray MTB series. Who knows? 😄 Later,

    This purely an excuse to end sponsorship instead of pulling sponsorship due to lack of money. Rabobank is a European bank and the situation in Europe is worse than ours (for now). Sponsoring cycling is not as expensive as some of the sponsorships in other sports so it looks like Rabobank could be in financial problems and need an easy out to blame the Lance issue. If they are having problems maybe they should give out toasters to boost deposits. Chances are someone better will come along to help cycling. Fat Billy has spoken! 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Sick Tires?….Anyone Posted this Yet? #113730

    maddslacker, It looked like the bike used with the airless tires had proper length cranks. Just saying. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Sick Tires?….Anyone Posted this Yet? #113728

    Looks like they glue on the rim. Don’t appear to flex. How much do they weigh when full of mud? Will they work when it is damp (wet log)? When they come loose from the rim do you need a TUBE of glue to fix it? Just asking. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Very Tight Very Twisty thoughts? #113530

    Doomed, you’re not. As a Clydesdale I can understand your frustration. Please understand that the tight stuff with roots and rocks are part of the game. Remember our largest advantage. Yes the Polish astronaut Mo Mentum kicks the skinny guys asses on the downhill. Got the nickname Downhill Bill in the past. You can go into corners faster and exit faster, no pedaling, a Clydesdales dream. Just work on the hard stuff and enjoy the downhills. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: I need a lower "Granny Gear"… #113394

    I’d go with a larger gear @ the cassette in the rear. The only major limit is the length of the rear derailleur. Check with your LBS about this. Keeping the front sprockets the same will keep the overall ratios more useable. Try a 11-34 or 11-36 casssette for better balance. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Disc brake question… #113119

    High dollar brakes require Grey Goose or Patron to be cleaned properly I guess. V Brakes are cool with Miller Lite. J├Ągermeister doesn’t require brakes just a big sapling. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Disc brake question… #113116

    When I wash my bike I usually drink beer and spill some on the rotors. Does that count? 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Camping near Bull Mountain #113066

    You’ll be faster if you stay at Holiday Inn. Chuck Norris stays there so it must mean something. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: I’ve been busy and miss my bicycle. #104532

    I’m good at making saw dust. Does that count? Just asking. 😄 Later,

    in reply to: Woman endos and injures spine, wins settlement from county #113000
