    A couple of pics of my "rig" after my ride.

    Its was wet but not too cold in the mid-Michigan area. I could concentrate anymore at school. So I hit the trail. I went by myself so I dont have any action shots yet. Enjoy. Sorry if they're a little blury looking. I'm not very good at holding the camera still.

    haha! I know. I put that on there until I get my camelpack. Its on order. I went the other day with no water and I thought I was going to die. There arent too many big logs with out a ramp over them. It was still in tack after todays ride.

    In the back right now. I have a thule "big mouth" on order. It mounts on top with both wheels on. Its a tight fit right now but it'll do for a few more days. If I didnt want the "big mouth", thule makes an adapter to use the velo vise with the lefty shock. I dont really want to deal with taking the wheel off a lot.

    Thanks. I bought it to beat the crap out of it, not keep it in the garage and clean.


    Oh yeah, the bottle got really dirty. I just wiped it off before I drank any water.

    or if you ride shared trails, you'd be drinking a lotta horse poop.

    so true...
    it's same as like... you're hanging outside Taipei 101 with an inch thick reinforced steel cable (which is impossible for it to break consider you dont weight more than a few hundred tons) but you wont do it cuz it's just so freakin' freaky!!

    A long time ago, I had a Nishiki Ariel with an under-the-downtube bottle mount. I thought it would be a great place to mount one of those new-fangled Instaflate CO2 inflators. While attempting to hop a log, I misjudged my speed (or rather lack thereof) and slammed the downtube on top of said log. The Instaflate took the hit and its casing smashed into little pieces. However, in the process, the CO2 cartridge somehow got punctured and shot away from the bike like a rocket. Luckily it missed me and the people that were around me.

    my son got Giardia from a local swimming pool that was contaminated.

    "SWEET" would not be the choicest of words I would use to describe it, or the length of time and tests required to diagnose it.

    I would probably go with something like "REALLY, REALLY ABSOLUTELY FU#@ING DISGUSTINGLY SICK". That describes it a little better.
