Well...the storms totally shtooked up the trails around here. Going to be another few weeks before the major trails are cleaned and cleared. As for the 20 mile loop my co-workers and I were working on..we might have to just scrap the idea. Rode a mile section of them tonight on our way to fireworks...not so good. In about a mile stretch there were 10 trees (all over foot wide) down directly over the trail. Kinda bummed right now.

thanks, they're sick.  wish i had that type of cash for a set of them.  or if only they had the same bar in aluminum...

They ARE sick. Big smile But, there are many companies out there that make that style of TT bullhorn bar in aluminum. Look at the Nitto Pursuit bars. Not exactly what the Ritcheys are, but close enough as long as you sawed off about 4 inches each side. Amazon's gots them...Ermm or if you have a good LBS in your area, just go to them and have them special order the bars. Just might have to do a little cutting with the Aluminum bars, but they will still look dope.

I would take crowded over closed any day....which is what I am dealing with right now. Most of the MTN bike trails in Ohio are closed due to so many trees down over the trail. One of the best trails in central Ohio is un-rideable due to over 100 trees down over the 9 mile trail. Ouch

There is a trail building/cleaning day tomorrow morning, might go. Not sure though as it's going to be 104 here tomorrow. Too hot to be running a chain saw and moving logs.

Spent the day today on Beech Mountain Ski Resort helping with cleanup and trail setup (cuts/berms/etc) for the US Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity National Championship in 2 weeks. This place was sick -- especially the area they called The Rock Garden -- and I cannot wait to go back to watch the comps!

Looks like it would be a rad time mommehK. Any mtn. bike race is a blast to go to. So much more fun and laid back than road racing. I have never been to a DH event, but I could only imagine how sweet it would be.

So...saw this trailer yesterday. I know...I know...a bunch of dirty hipster douche-bags blowing lights, complaining about the "man", and moving legit riding back a step..but it looks like a good watch non the less. Probably one of the best shot film of it's kind. Count me in for watching it when it comes out, and feeling dirty about it. LOL

Congrats! Those frames are bomb proof. Not trying to rain or anything, but if you start doing rougher trails, keep an eye on the wheel set. The wheels seem to be the only thing that wear out on that model. Although, most of the people we have come into our shop with issues with that wheel set are fatties, so you should be fine being...you know..a normal person and all. LOL

Now remember, never touch the rotors! Oh, and don't bump the rotors/set them face down on anything. Other than that you should be able to ride the piss out of that bike and have no issues. Welcome to the sweet, sweet world of 9er ownership Big smile. I will never go back to a 26 inch wheel. Never.

Now, go out and get that thing durrrty! Have fun mommehK!

heheheh thanks bmw!!! :D   The only thing I'm having to get used to is the saddle height so far. I spent about 30-40mins on it yesterday. Gonna have to probably get another saddle that's a little more gel squishy.

The bike shop I used really made sure I wanted what I was going to buy -- they let me ride around for about 10-15min on each bike I rode (I also rode the women's Myka HT in a Medium & Large).

I changed up the grips on it to some Body Geometry on it that have the extra wide rest piece that are more like the Myka grips.

I was planning to go ride this afternoon - hit a 7.3mi, figure 8, mostly single track, with only about a 1k elevation gain. But it's been storming like a bish here with some of the worst thunder I've ever heard in my life.

I also need to prep the Bimmer with a cargo liner to haul it dirty...or go get a hitch mounted on it so I can use that instead.

What do you mean getting used to the seat height? Have you always ridden bikes with the seat low or something.? As for a new saddle...yeah. Those seats are pretty bad. Normally I would tell someone to ride it out for a month and get used to it, but as for the seats on the hardrocks and rockhoppers) they suck. If you DO get a new seat, take a look at the Reba. It's the seat that comes on the Myka's and are one of the most popular woman specific saddles Specialized makes. My wife LOVES hers.

Any reason why you didn't go with the myka btw?

As for transportation of the bike. A rack is the way to go. Yeah they are more expensive than just putting the bike in the back of the car, but it will help in the long run with the upkeep of the bike. Especially fr a bike with disc brakes. I am running into that issue right now with my hoppy. Luckily I work in a shop and can re-true my rotors any time I want.

That sucks about the storms...dealt with the same thing today in Ohio. Pop up storms all day. Plus we still have a few trails closed due to so many trees down from the nasty storm that blasted us almost 2 weeks ago. Oh, and 1k elevation gain is pretty good. Nothing to scoff at. in comparison the trail just outside of town here, has about 100 feet of gain...Ermm..I need a new state.

I've not ridden a bike since I was a kid...where seats are low enough that you can still touch the ground with your feet while still seated. Can't do that on these 29s LOL.

The Myka felt heavier to me...and the length was just a tad short enough that I could tell a difference in the feel of my posture/stance on it versus the RS. I was just too upright on the Myka.

I'm looking at the Specialized Dolce gel saddle possibly...dunno what I'll get until I see what MotionMakers has in stock.

I'll be going to U-haul sometime this week to get a receiver hitch mounted...already have my eye on either a Yakima BigHorn4 or DoubleDown2 rack.

Not yet. That project got sidelined. Been shopping for a new car for the wifey, packing and planning for a weekend canoe trip next week, work, and trail building. Probably will get around to it next paycheck, and after things settle down after our canoe trip. But don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it Wink

Okay - so I got to chaperone winners from the course-end corral up to the administration building where they got to do their anti-doping whizz...so it was a "read this, sign here, and let's go!" situation. Yay!

bmw - I went ahead and got a Riva saddle and went up a size to a 155. Hoping that will help out.

Sooo..have put this off for a while, but I finally have the wife's bike figured out and put back together. It was finished weeks ago, but had some serious issues with bottom bracket spacing. New BB installed today, and it's good to go. Thinking about selling it though LOL

The clear coats/finish isn't as strong as I hoped it would be, and my wife is pretty hard on her bikes. Just don't think the paint will last for someone that is using it for commuting/drunken rides/locking to random metal objects. Putting a feeler out for it on the CL tonight. Maybe if someone offers just enough for it, we will let it go and get her a new upgraded bike from my shop.

Anyways, here are a few shots of the bike put together...

Thanks lucky. She has a mtn. bike as a back up, but you can't ride those around the city all the time. Not really the most efficient thing on the road ya know.

I don't know, we went for a ride last night and I was even amazed at how sick it looks at night under the street lights. BUT, I know that she can't take care of it. It has less than 100 miles on it, and she has already managed to put a few good scuffs and scrapes on the new paint. While the new paint doesn't have the strongest clear coat, she constantly leans and locks it up with either metal posts or brick rubbing against the frame.
I just don't get it. Drives me absolutely nuts. I guess she just needs something with a factory thick ass clear on it. Ermm
Those are the reasons I want to sell it. I love my wife, but she just can't take care of nice things...

Wow...it's been forever it feels...
How is everyone's projects coming along? There seemed to be a few started months back..hope everything is going well with them.

The shop has been consuming a shit ton of my time, and it's been rad. Been learning how to do a lot of major overhauls and repairs the past few weeks. Got to work on a sweet BMC last week. Don't remember the model, but it was pretty damn high end. Bastard didn't have cranks installed so we couldn't go ride it around after we tuned it up Wink.
My shop has a mtn. bike demo day coming up this weekend. Couldn't be more pumped. I get to ride around on thousands of dollars of top notch 2013 bikes at a local trail just outside of town. Think I am going to try out a Camber Carbon Elite 29 and a Stumpjumper Comp 29 (Both are Specialized). My Rockhopper has been treating me well the past few months on the trail, but I already want a serious upgrade. I need a fully...I need that squish! LOL Not going to jump the gun on that this year, but spring time next year I will get on it.

Been gathering a ton of parts together to get ready for sale. Such a pain in the ass. BTW, if anyone is looking for parts...let me know. I might have something you need..hahah.

Hope everyone is having a good summer of riding. Sad to say I have only just hit 1k miles for the year. Slackin. LOL

My "project" is still on hold. Work and softball have been consuming the majority of my time, but softball ends this week! I'll be able to get back to other hobbies (and the gym.. i've gained 10 pounds since june! lol). Still need to replace the brake calipers on the old Schwinn (though the ones i was looking at are still not in stock), though I did upgrade the pads which has helped a bit. Next years upgrade will likely be the wheels. And one of these days I'd like to bring the bike into the semi-LBS to see if i can get a screw for the front derailleur. The max pedaling speed of 22 just ain't cuttin it!

I loved that video. The OP posted it up on r/bicycling and made it quite clear that not only did he want the bike bike, they wanted his ass in jail. And it looks like it's going to happen too. 

Open admittance to possessing and selling stolen property... mmm.

That video is great. I had a bike stolen a year ago so it's good to see the asshole who stole his get caught. Mine had a U lock on it and someone torched through it.

I think I'd rather just see that chick in that outfit ride a bike.. then get the dress tangled in the chain... then see if the helmet really works. lol
