Scent free? Yeah, sure...more likely he just didn't douse in deer piss.

Title reminded me of the famous my saddle smells like ass thread or wouldn't even have looked.

How does my bike smell?

"You smell that? Do you smell that? Transition, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of Transition in the morning. You know, one time we shredded a hill for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' Specialized. The smell, you know, that Transition smell, the whole hill. Smells like . . . victory."



with apologies to Francis Ford Coppola.

If they had a saluting smiley I'd be putting one here.

If this is your first visit to Bike Forums please take the time to smell your bike. Registration is not required for you to smell your bike.
