Still prefer my old rigid Trek alum frame.Whites bb bearings,thompson post,Richey z-max tires(still the best imo) specialized hubs on sun rims and humble xt mechs. Built myself 20yrs+- ago.old and trusty and WAY more bombproof than i am now adays
Hoora for rigidity!! These new bikes, bonded, carbon fiber, even seen a Wooden road bike, all beautiful,works of art even. Performance,many likely uncomperable. But of all of em', always wanted to ride an old bone shaker, or other big wheeler! Now how cool would that be,period dress dress and all goin' down the road ?! (Imo,wierd,but cool)
AND further more,it's all about riding,for me,solitude and watching the land go by. There is a purity to it.Does'nt matter what u ride,as long as u do ride. But as anticipated,Long ago,that any weight i saved on frame and goodies would later be replaced by the weight I now carry,(20s long gone). But now i've an X,a mazda,and my banshee. Where the x leaves off the banshee starts,when i want peace Trek beats all,( no less expensive,stretched cranks,2 frames broken or bent Every piece possible.)
My 6 year old came home to a nice surprise this week. A barley used 20" tire 11" frame Kona Makena mountain bike. I always look on Craigslist for a good deal on real company kids bikes. His 4 year old Brother was just as happy because he went from a 12" to 16" Aluminum frame BMX bike.
So, how do you guys transport your bikes? I originally thought I would get a hitch style setup, but they wouldn't allow me to open my hatch. A roof setup is out of the question, never have liked the idea of mounting the bike way up high. So the only real option I have left that I see is putting...
I am visiting my dad in Hernando, and want to find a nice bike trail while I am there. Does anyone know a good bicycle, or hiking trail in or near Hernando? My dad is too old for all of that, so he doesn't know of many places.
