    Yeah I'm a pedal wuss. Either that or I just slip pedals unusually often. Maybe both. I think it adds to my false sense of security too.

    I think Syracuse is about 3 hours from me. It'll have to wait for a little until I'm 100% recovered from ankle surgery (and spend some time on the bike after that to make sure I remember how to ride hah), but I could be up for that.

    I think this would be a great venue for the TGMBG. Do people from NC burst into flames when they arrive in NY state?

    Highrevs and two other bangers are arriving this evening from north cackalaka, although 66 aint one of 'em. I don't think he likes to come down out of those mountains much...and I don't blame him.

    Headed down two hours south to Pocahontas state park in VA, rode for all of five minutes before faceplanting into a stretch of wooden trail... edge of one of the boards went into my helmet, leaving a nice dent. Had almost no vision, my friend drove me home, I got out of the car, threw up, and went to the hospital. Needless to say I had a concussion.

    Everything hurts today. Thank god I was wearing a helmet.

    Ouch. Was it a morning ride? Where I am any wooden section of trail that the county put up was treated with something that when it's damp it's as slick as ice with a thin layer of grease on top of it.

    No, by time we started riding it was right around noon. Not sure why I went down, it happened very fast. I had trouble walking back to the car.. not a good experience.

    Probably still damp. Was around 12:30pm when I had the wheels go out on me on a wooden bridge back in the spring of 2010.

    half-ass intro:

    i'm a cyclist (primarily of the road-racing persuasion) who wants to get back into mtbing again.

    In college I owned a steel hardtail bonty privateer with crappy v-brakes and like a first gen marzoochi bomber fork. It had tons of character. I sold out of frustration after a wreck a couple summers back landed me in the ER with torn ligaments in my left shoulder and a good concussion.
    Additionally, I figured that I wouldn't want an mtb anymore because I was moving back home to socal (N county San Diego) and away from Humboldt. Needless to say the riding up there is awesome .

    As time has passed I've missed it. MTB'ing was what I did on easy days, days when I didn't have prescribed training to do or just whenever I wanted to enjoy nature on the bike without being left brained about it.
    My gf and I went hiking on a trail about a week ago with some real steep, techy switchbacks and there were some people riding up the trail on mtbs. I must have one now.

    What I owned was a hardtail 26", and while I enjoyed the maneuverability and am kinda set on purchasing another, I would like to try a 29er before I make my decision. Im inclined to just stick with 26" because I could care less about how fast I am over fire roads and bumpy flat sections. I want a hardtail xc rig that I can huck a little bit and pick fun sketchy lines with. Iono, I could go either way I guess.

    I'll be trolling the local Clist and asking around the roadie community for mtbs that are collecting dust. I can't wait to post my new rig up on here and start hitting the trails again.

    Got a small gift card to burn. Can't decide...

    My 6" and 8" diagonal cutters are cheap chinese and slightly side-to-side wonky. My lineman's pliers are in the same boat. But Irwin V-Groove pliers are just cool looking. I just can't decide. I've got a set of small and medium Craftsman "channel-lock-type" pliers. The V-groove would be similar...so I don't "need" them.

    AAAAARGH...I should probably just update my daggum cutters.

    Get an adjustable wrench or two, you will never know when you need more than one.

    Channelock (brand). They make excellent dikes, lineman's . . . and all pliers for that matter. Treat yourself; you'll never have to buy a replacement and neither will your kids.

    Since we're randomly bringing things up...I like tools too...I finally just bought a ball joint remover/installer kit after holding off for so long.

    And I like parts too...soon it'll be time to order the T-76 (sizing to be confirmed by Turbonetics) for the V.

    It's geek, not nerd, nerd.

    Ive been using some Greenlee lineman's dykes I got at Loweses and I've been impressed with their quality and comfort. For slip joint pliers I have Weil (?) garage sale find that are spring loaded and awesome. Cobalt diagonal cutters seem to work well but they don't see heavy use in my shop.

    They're nerds. You're a dork, dork.

    dminor> No, yoga was yesterday. Tomorrow I'm taking the girls to their first of six indoor rock climbing lessons I signed them up for.
