    Well it's official

    I am so addicted to biking that going without a bike for 1-2 days = withdrawl. Seriously considering either a backup bike or rebuilding the Specialized Rockhopper that has a broken shock and fork.

    What happened to your bike? I had the same deal a few months ago when my friend first got me into mountain biking. The withdrawals faded as the weather got hot & all job prospects fell through, leaving me with 95 degree 90% humidity weather on a daily basis & no money to drive to the nearest trails. Every time I manage to get out there, I don't want to leave & the withdrawals start all over as soon as I do.

    Nothing really, the derailleur got snagged on a rock and snapped after trying to bend it back. Could be worse!

    You'll reach a point where your body starts hurtin' and the day off will be nice.

    I started out today and quickly realized the rear axle was loose providing side to side movement of the wheel. I don't have a cassette tool to get the cassette off and tighten the locknuts - so back to the car and into the shop (16 miles) I went. By the time they get it tightened I don't have time to head back up to the hills and ride before needing to be home because the wife has a bunch of people coming over tonight and I have kid duty.

    To top it off, I'm out of town the next three days - the withdrawals have definitely started.

    Hahahahaha. There's good trails in the "area" but by the area I mean within 1 hour any direction.

    It's worth it, though. I enjoy listening to music to get me amped up on the way there, and then blaring Pink Floyd on the way home. It's such a way to get in the mood/relax after a good ride.

    My buddies find it easy to get me out to do things on rainy days, but hard on nice sunny days. They don't know where I go on the nice days .
