    Bonking is teh suxor. [o]


    Especially when you are not in the possession of opposable thumbs, the ability to speak, and a boneheaded owner who leaves your biscuits behind.


    Doh! This precipitously led to some quality hoofing it time, I'm sure.


    Wet, wet, wet. Spring into summer has been not only our usual palpably stew of humid air, but a rainy day filled buzz-killer. This, of course has led to fungal life going berserk.


    I'd lichen it to that "Twilight Zone" movie bit with Stephen King and the alien moss growth. Green stuff going nuts everywhere. Don't keep still for too long...


    The sweat equity paid for riding around here is high.


    Granted, the ROA is pretty damn sweet.


    It's a perfect excuse to partake of your favorite post ride libations, whatever they may be.


    The spousal unit and I spent last weekend in Boston. Nice bed and breakfast place. Most exquisite coffee and brioche for breakfast one morning. A Ladytron show one night at the Paradise, dinner at The Helmand, and amusing ourselves at the expense of the fashion victims on Newbury St. kept our minds distracted from the realization we weren't riding or running.



    Back to work! Huck your meat. I love this little one. Smaller to larger depending on which side your steer yourself towards. Don't head in too fast - a sharpish left hander comes up fairly quickly upon landing. Here I am giving a fine dead sailor example.

    Are you running a Zion 29'er rigid on with a 26" front wheel?

    I like how there is naff all tire clearance left on the rigid. Stuff it in there!

    And yes, as per usual, i loooove your photos.

    Nah, I've had a couple rigid SS rides over the years. I don't ride them as much as the other bikes, but still like having one around. The other bikes are a bit overkill for some trails/riding states of mind some days. Plus, this one gets the studded tire treatment in winter. Makes me not get too sloppy with line choices, and fun to practice the trialsy kinda stuff on.

    Yep. Gets me slacker angles like I like vs. running most 26" rigid forks. This bike is still a good 3* steeper head angle than my regular hardtail. It's a very flickable bike. Just my old hardtail frame converted.

    Perceptual trick of the photo - there is actually gobs more clearance on the fork. That's a 2.7" Bontrager in there in that shot, and still a bit of room to spare.

    That's exactly what I was planning on doing with a $6 Komodo frame I got on eBay.
