    Anything you regret...

    ...about your bike?




    I wish my Kona was "Chris King 'mango'" colored. You know - that metallic (but not metal flake) orange.

    Specifically the color of my rims. They're Rolf Vector Comps. Great, great wheels. Light, strong, true as the day they rolled off the LBS floor. But... I hate the cheesy red anodized color. Why not just simple black or silver?

    My only real regret is that I didn't start this hobby sooner. Yeah, there's details I might do differently if I were shopping again, but the difference in the details is far smaller than the difference between being a cyclist and being a couch potato.

    The commuter-mountain bike (rigid GT with XT): it doesn't have enough blinkie.

    The full-touring bike (~'95 Cannondale touring): it doesn't have enough blinkie, and it's stuck in 7sp land, I'd like 9sp MegaRange + STI.

    The road-racing bike ('00 Paramount, Reynolds 753 lugged steel): it's still just a frameset, so naturally it doesn't have enough blinkie, or enough of anything else either!

    You'll never be satisfied until the frame, rims and seat are made of HID lights and can blind low flying airplanes.

    What, only the frame, rims, and seat?

    Ouch! See, cars... they'll turn on your bike out of jealousy! He didn't buy ME leather seats, but that bike gets one?! It's going to PAY!

    My dad's bike just got stolen on Saturday.

    It was a 2004 GT Avalanche 2.0 Disc.

    He's in the St. Thomas, ONT area, so look out BFer's.

    I regret ditching the rear disc brake on my Talus...I should have gotten an old man mountain rack, which was disc brake compatible.

    That I didn't make the conversion from full time MT Biker to full time ROADIE sooner. Road biking has been a major source of enjoyment in my life. My bikes...I've made good choices with purchases and upgrades. I do wish that I had kept my Trek 1000. But I couldn't justify having three road bikes at the time. What was i thinking!? ha ha

    I regret buying cheaper components and then not being happy with them resulting in me buying the nicer components I wanted originally. In the end it cost me a lot more money than if I had just done it right the first time.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    No regrets either. My only regret is that I gave up mountain biking 10 years ago and now just started up again. Wow, things would be much different if I would have stayed with it. NEVER AGAIN will I do that.

    My Giant ATX 1200's fork. The very worn out elastomers are non replaceable, and it will cost more than twice the cost of putting new shocks on my car to replace the fork. The Coupe Delux rear may be repairable, but as of yet I haven't found any website selling rebuild kits for the 4" model. Last problem is the non replaceable bushings. I hope that one day us bike riders will as a whole stop putting up with this **** and demand that bike manufacturers stand behind their products.
