LBS doesn't want to warrenty. If I were the LBS I would run that Ghay roadie out tha shop. Stick to street pcad, the mountains are no place fa you.

Very close. He broke a derailleur hanger and had to call his wife to pick him up.

Now, where's that pic of Pcad riding through the field with a look of terror on his face?

Cmon Pcad, any man worth his salt eats the dirt along with the drink and likes it.

Being stoned helps though

Actually, I'm a 51 year old Cat 4 trying to race with 35+ Cat 2/3's, and the only gnar getting shredded is mine. But I didn't get shelled in the race yesterday, so I do have that going for me. I did however finish DFL + 12 or so. Oh well. I figure if you can hit the back of the Cat's Paw Hill sprint with a Frisbee you didn't ride so bad.

And they say mountain bikers are stoners. The above sounds very Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
