    This is about the best picture that I could find. Basically, the compression of the hit to my knoggin' was transferred down the spine, until one of them "gave out". This picture is worse than mine...

    They say that some things come in 3's. This year, I have had three crashes of consequence. I ride about 4-5 times a week, with 3-4 of those "lunch-time" rides of an hour or so, with 2-4 hour rides on...

    I would get out from under that in a heart-beat. Get yourself a "Yeti" sticker kit, and plaster that bike. Make your asking price double what you paid for it, and some sucker is sure to buy it.

    Only 90 seconds off what you usually do it on your road bike!?!?!?! That is pretty impressive. The fact of the matter is, if somebody knows what they are doing, they can do it on a Huffy or an...

    I understand what you are saying, but for me, it was a wash. Yes, the Horst Link (FSR) rear end was a very stable pedaling platform, the hydro disk brakes were nice, and simply having a bike from the...

    What would it take to get the Hardrock back up and running? Maybe make that investment, get out and see if you are satisfied with what that bike is providing you. If you want something else, you've...

    Good eye, Colin! I bought the wheelset in February. It has an XX cassette on it, which I think is pretty easy on a hub. I shot a picture of it to my buddy, and he had a GREAT idea! He said "We should...

    Last night, I checked that the chain was not stretched. I also cleaned and re-lubed it, with no change. My derailleur hanger was a little loose, so I tightened that a bit. Seems like my rear...
