Just remember if you puke on a ride, no one cares. Puke on a lady, everyone cares. So stay out late, leave her place early, hammer the ride, puke on the trail.

Well I screwed up my plans for the whole week because of training. I have planned 1 1/2 hours on the trainer for today including some 90 second intervals in zone five. I am doing all of this because of a race I was supposed to do tomorrow. My whole week was planned around this race and now it has been cacelled because of snow! A 40 mile road race in the snow would suck though.

Thanx LowCel, I thought my weather was too cold to ride when I woke up( 39 degrees with a 15-25 mph wind) .After thinking about your troubles, I went out for a 22 mile ride (10 miles offroad) and I'm glad I did. BTW Klondike , I"ll use your plan next time .

I would love to have weather like that right now. It is currently 25 and snowing. For the race tomorrow (three hours from here) the temp at the start was supposed to be 23 (real feel of 18). I'm kind of glad they are postponing it until next weekend.

The high here for tomorrow is 33. I'll probably try to get out for a quick 30 or 40 miles. It will be a good day to do an active rest day. I just can't stand the idea of getting on the trainer again tomorrow. Riding the road is so much easier than that thing.

Depends on what you would you rather do? Hammer a lady or hammer a bike?

If i didn't just install a new set of RS Reba's, the choice would be a no-brainer.

Nice Jamis. My wife rides the same year/model, 03 Dakar. It looks like you've been busy upgrading (Brakes/wheels/fork) We are also looking for a new fork for her to replace the OEM Axel.

All newer Jamis bikes are not as good as the 2003's as this was the last year Jamis licenced Horst Link. All new Jamis are single pivots. A buddy of mine rides a 03 XLT and he swears by it.

Fake backgrounds? That's a shot of the marina where I keep my Chriscraft, taken from an abandoned railroad track that was used during the construction of Hoover Dam which created Lake Mead .

I bought the jamis as a lightly used frame and purchased most of the rest off Ebay.It,s got XTR 8speed rear deraieur ,shift/brake levers ,and cassette . XT cranks , SPD 545 pedals ,etc . The total cost was less than a $1000 .I had wanted a Horst link bike since he created the Specialized full suspension bike in the early 90's . It is amazing to me that the design has stood the test of time and is still one of the most effective designs on the market. I wish jamis made a 20" version though , the 19" is a bit too small and the 21" seems huge.

Trust me twinky ,those aren't backdrops and the bike was really there. the only thing I've done to the photos was to shrink them down in size.
