    SA Retro Rigids (ongoing)

    What?! That's right, dust off your retro rigids for a vintage trail ride. Whether just for fun or to regain lost skills, join other 26" rigids for a bucking good time.

    If you're interested, reply...

    I suppose it's because I'm not slow, my equipment is. It'd be different if I was slow because of inadequate skills...that's a challenge to embrace, but an equipment disadvantage is more difficult to...

    How poetic. Much better than man up, or cowboy up. Now let's go get some commies!

    I've considered a rigid 29er singlespeed before. Maybe I'll revisit that option again, but my pace will still be off the group.

    Well retro includes 26 fs and hardtail, and rigid includes 29ers, so nope, it's not redundant...and more importantly, just Rigid Riders could be misconstrued. Yikes!

    Regardless, it's a good...

    Good point, though easier said than done. In my neck of the woods ever since suspension hit the market I haven't seen another person riding rigid, and I've only recently seen one retro hardtail....

    Thanks for the reminder, skol. Actually I couldn't care less about being fast, I suppose that's another reason why I usually ride solo. I find riding slow, technical track more enjoyable and...

    Got the rigid blues.

    Today I got back on my mountain bike after about a 1.5 year break. Due to my schedule I usually ride solo, but today I rode with a group who, of course, all had full-suspension 29'ers; whereas I ride...

    I think you meant PVC, not fiberglass. I only drink bottled or filtered water; good point otherwise. Though considering the chemical warfare we face daily from food/beverage producers it probably...

    It's uncertain whether aluminum is harmful so I choose to avoid it. Putting coins in your mouth, while not aluminum, was to emphasize how some metals leach or at least cause a metallic taste. The BPA...

    Actually, aluminum is in antiperspirant, but deodorant has its own issues. Regardless, for a little tmi, I stopped using both.

    Aluminum leaches, there's huge controversy whether it's dangerous or not...to health.
  15. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    No, the logo looks like it may be applied under the clear powdercoat when it was repainted. From what I read, it's most likely a Trek. Get the serial #, and call Trek customer service...they'll tell...

    Thanks for sharing more, but I can already see this is beyond my budget. You might try listing it in the marketplace though. She's a beaut', good luck!

    Thanks, if we don't figure out a trade, I'll look for a donor bike, though I'm not well versed in finding inexpensive buys.
