    Thanks! This is a cautionary tale about inspecting the bike when it doesn't feel right...before it broke it sort of felt like the core of that pedal was bent and I made a note to swap out the pedals...
  2. Don't you hate it when this happens?

    I was riding home yesterday on my cruiser and I broke a crank. It's a GT Kustom Kruiser from 2000 so I suppose it could have been metal fatigue. Anyway, I feel like the luckiest guy in Grand Rapids...

    I'm throwing in the towel today.....it's not the -20 windchill that bugs me so much as the 45 mph wind. Fat bikes don't like wind.

    Oooooh, say this part again. This is music to my ears. I'm gonna go get a drink and toast you, sir.

    Nothing gets my blood up like bike theft.

    I got sideswiped by a school bus when I lived in Cincinnati. I was riding by the rules of the road on my 29er and a school bus barreled up behind me. My left grip skidded down the side of the bus...

    Damn drivers....I'm with locolobo. Is there an alternate route? There's a few intersections here in Grand Rapids that I avoid like the plague because it just ain't worth it, even if it adds to my...

    .....and my car was stuck in my own driveway. The bicycle gods are angry and demand sacrifice.

    Windchills approacing -20 today. Guess who isn't riding? Can I at least wear my bike stuff in the car?

    Heh! Would she bat an eye if you read them bedtime stories? That said, I like the Phantom name!

    Joke's on me. I'm at work and the temps outside are dropping. I'm done so I'm gonna get the hell out of here.
  11. Whooo! Work called it a snowday but I'm riding in!

    My employer called it this morning but there's still some critical stuff to be done....and the temps are not as nasty as they predicted so I'm hopping on the Pugsley shortly. I'm actually excited...

    So when you wake up tonight and there's a guy in your house dressed as a devil whispering "Buy a Pugsley", Don't shoot. It's just me trying to encourage you to do it.

    Brrrrr! I'm late to this party....I rode yesterday when it was around 4 or 5 degrees. Rode today in -7. I need a better face mask!

    That said, the Pugsley is paying for itself on frozen slush...

    I've never gone out in anything below 0. Good luck, soldier!

    In other news, I was thinking of going for a ride yesterday but it was around 42 degrees. It felt too warm to ride!

    Whoa, what kind of frame is that? I really like the looks of your setup!
  16. I can't be the only sicko who names his bikes

    Well? I'll start. Among my bikes I have a Surly Crosscheck ('the Toledo Swamp Monster'), a Pugsley ('Freakshow'), a beach cruiser ('Dybbuk' Hebrew for a malevolent spirit), and my very-weathered...

    You guys were right. I overcame my new bike thrills and took the studs. Glad I did. It was pretty nasty out. For the cars, anyway. I'm the only one at work now.
