Tough blow Idabow, that new bike will give you something to look forward to during recovery.
I saw a guy today while out on my ride. His name is Clive Dawson and is a champion on the track. I met him about 10 years ago, racing him on the dirt, me on a single speed cyclocross bike, him on a hardtail MTB. It ended up a tie. Today, he remembered our race 10 years ago. I remember what he said after the race, obviously you have raced. I was very flattered by that coming from a guy who has raced a lot. We are about the same age and I found out today that he lives close by.
Anybody have a cruiser? Thinking about the Townie Commute 27D?
bikes in the bush, we need more pics like this
I’m walking without a crutch an cane. Only with a "bionic" brace. The joint has no side support at all. Waiting for the orthopedic referral.
Ordered a Fezarri Abajo Peak 5 days before the knee incident. Still getting it. Surgery or not. I rode around the driveway just to see if I could. I have specialized fsr xc comp 26 er I bought used 4 years ago. Rode once before tearing out the knee the first time. Rode all season 2 summers ago, then the truck died, and had no way to hit the trails till this year. Got a new truck and now the knee pops out again. Actually hoping for surgery. Re gab didn’t do jack in 4 years. Mtbiking and martial arts are the things that brought my my motor skills back
Thinking about flat pedals for the new bike. Been riding shimano spd’s For almost twent years. My main concern is shoe stiffness and sticking to the pedals in rough stuff. I need power transfer and glue in the rough stuff.
I currently run spd’s with the multi angle release cleats. Not currently, forever on spd’s
Shimano XC7 carbon MTB shoes. There is a giant difference between them and ordinary MTB shoes.
I commute by bike and had been using "walkable" MTB shoes. I now know there is no such thing as a shoe that's good for walking and that's good for riding.
Now, I put some real backpacking shoes in my pannier and change shoes when I get to work. The XC7 shoes are OK for walking.
April- come she wil
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain
May - she will stay
resting in my arms again
June- she'll change her tune
in restless walks she'll prowl the night
July - she will fly
and give no warning to her flight
August- come she must
the autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September- I remember
a love once new has now grown old
Looks a lot like the M trail above Bozeman! I'm sure there are a lot of trails overlooking towns out there...
