Hi,

my first post.

I ride/race:

Trek OCLV US Postal road
Litespeed Tellico MTB
Surly 1x1 singlespeed MTB
Trek X01 cross (I killed it last week....)
Brompton

Up in a spot Maine we have many acres of private land
and the owner is a legendary mountain biker who lets
us carve deep earthen ramps and banking. I have built
a couple of time-trial courses and gravity-cavities for
singlespeed MTB.

Anyhow, we have a beaver on the property and said Beav
built us a killer 1 mile log bog. When the bog is frozen we like
to stud-up the bikes and do sprints on the ice.

A 1 mile ice sprint is great with a load.

Introducing 'The Bogliner' for 2006...

BONUS: check the top tubes closely...who can tell me the
make and model of the frame ?

woah, I dig the trailer couch.

must be nice to have that frozen bog around... I'd love to get some real ice around here to try out my icebike.

I'm curious to know. There was a bike with a similar frame hanging on the wall up in Cable WI.
