EDIT nice linkie eyefloater, I may pull that soon.
Keith, I'm really likin' the SS idea for my bike. Stuff is going on it, and I think it'll be cheaper all around if I just do the conversion.
What kind of crank will accommodate non-proprietary rings? Shim needs Shim rings no?

Only one is a '6000$ spidery carbon/DA thingy', the new one is a 'spidery carbon/SRAM Force thingy'.

And I don't come off as an arrogant prick. I am an arrogant prick.

I rode into work with a jacket but was too hot by the time I skidded up the stairs of the building.

Good news: My Double Cross came in last night. So incredibly packed, and the bike seems for all intents are purposes brand new. Anybody want to show me some fun trails to take it on this weekend?

PS. the bearings on the chris king wheels haven't even been broken in yet


edit: JIT, it ain't carbon, it ain't got no carbon, and it ain't ever getting any carbon. And it has cantilevers, so find yourself an overhang and cantilever something over it.

2 words...Jack, Pot. The Don has all kinds of good trails. As was mentioned the Lower Don is fun. The Ridge trail is a little crazy for me but Jeremy "The demon" seems to like it. Even if you ride the paved path thru the Don...there are many dirt paths next to the pavement. You can get a good workout doing it all in an aft.

JIT is short form for Junior in Training. Typically an insult used by full of themselves roadies. This guy looks more like a troll every minute.

Another message from the Bike Chain.. might be good for a larf:

It's your invitation to an Open House at the new BMX Park at Dufferin and Dupont, just south of Zeller's at the Galleria Mall on SATURDAY OCTOBER 21 (weather permitting).

At noon there'll be a barbecue and sessioning of the dirt jumps, pump track and freestyle area.

At 1:30 we'll have a bit of a comp for prizes – best times (ages/experience) and best tricks. Should all be over by 4. Bring your friends – there'll be a few Norco BMX bikes available for use. If you get a chance to ride the park before then and notice something that needs to be fixed (slope angles, jump distances, etc) please let me know so we can get it right. I do hope that you'll like it. Thanks.

Sweet man! I'm excited to see it. If you want to ride the don on Sunday or even Monday afternoon, I'd love to join you. Do you have knobbies on there?

yeah, got some Vittoria Cross XG pros on it. They look to be (essentially) new. I just need to pump up the tires, tighten a few bolts and get the saddle height set and I'm ready to roll. Brifters seem kind of fun.

Sunday afternoon I probably can't do because I gotta be clean and presentable for dinner at 6-6:30... If we started earlier in the afternoon it could work


Edit: damn, these tires cost 70USD a pair and weigh 350 grams!

Rollers , at least until you get really comfortable on them, require more concentration to ride. The bonus is also that they help your bike handling skills as you have to keep the bike in a straight line else you come off them. Rollers dont offer the same kind of resistance as trainers ( unless you pick up a resistance unit for em) but all and all I think the rollers are a better form of training.
Perhaps the almighty JIT can enlighten us on this.
ok cool, thanx keith...

I think I'm free after around 2pm. Same thing on monday. I'll PM my cel, just drop me a line if you feel like going. I also hit the don maybe 3 times a week after work~7 pm or so. Lights are required, unfortunately.
