Doesn't exist without pics.

5' 11" or 6', depending on my posture, and probably around 225 right now. I don't particularly care for climbs, but I'm too stubborn to quit going up once I've started.

Doing an organized MTB ride last Saturday, I was on a long downhill when a rock cut through my sidewall. Got that fixed but with the inch-long cut couldn't air the tire up too much without bulging...

Well, I broke my first spoke tonight. Rear wheel, drive side, about an inch and a half from the flange. I was almost to my turnaround point, powering up a hill - well, powering for me - when I...
