    My driveway is "paved" with recycled asphalt (in my case, ground-up Interstate 93 pavement :D ) You can probably get it at your local gravel pit. I recently bought a pickup-truck-load to fill a...

    A whole bike is often worth less than the sum of its parts. I was able to buy a Shimano 5503 group (3X9 with STI from 1999) for $200 because it was bolted to a small Fuji Roubaix. I stripped the bike...

    I do all XC riding.
    I've had the same cockpit on a succession of frames, based on a Scott AT2 bar. Since regular grips don't really work on a bar with integral bar-ends, I just wrapped 'em with some...

    I'll be in NC on 9/20, so that ride is out. I am interested in any October group rides since the scenery is so great then. I can say from personal experience that tire pressure is key in Northern New...

    Thanks for the pics, Bob! For the record, the "Hard Man" had a gimpy left knee by the end of the ride. I'm blaming my mashing riding style. Having only 5 gear ratios might have played in to that.

    I guess... like a cell phone from 20 years ago. Awesome then, but outdated today. I don't mind the simple, short travel for XC, but different strokes for different folks.

    Don't discount that Manitou 4! It's the best of the early production suspension forks. If the elastomers are dead, I think you can still find springs to fit. Light, stiff, reliable and CNC-awesome.
