^ true true. I see now that the ribbing was more good natured pestering than anything malicious. I guess im a bit more defensive after a binge of posts in the road forum were met with "we need wattage and heartrates or we dont get it" . Hell, at least I didnt throw down an Echallenge, then Id really be a sucker

What I really want to see is how fast you can clean your room,take out the garbage and load the dishwasher. That would impress me.

We shall see. Im taking it on a semi extended trip with my uncle over massanutten (sp?) mountain in northern VA when I head back up to school. Even if it isnt as good for singletrack as the hardrock, the fire road style riding will make up for it in my book.

Is fire road riding what you consider mountain biking???? It's funny,the people I meet around here that mountain bike use mountain bikes. That's just crazy insane.

im not really trying to be combative here pops, but no. Fire roads are not mountain biking, but a mountain bike is useful here and is a large part of my riding. Its basically a money issue, I can have one bike for a variety of tasks and CX bike provides the best bang for the buck for my tastes. I understand that for the sort of riding you're doing, that is almost unusable. I do know that I can use a CX bike for singletrack, because Ive done it before.

I've seen the videos of you riding stairs and I highly doubt that you can. But feel free to swing by and try.
