Man, I wouldn't ride my dirt bike in those conditions. The drivetrain, brakes and bearings must be toast after conditions like that.

bearings are sealed. chain and sprockets? aw, they can take quite a bit of that before they die, especially at the load levels a bicycle drive chain sees. you hose all the mud and grit off, wash the chain down with wd40 to get the rest of the grime off it, wipe it dry, then lightly oil it with some good chain lube, and move on.

Sunday morning bump.

Went riding with a buddy upstate yesterday, 30 miles through a cold brisk air (42 degrees mountain temp).

Good news is we can get 2 roadies in the back of a Mini Cooper S.....:D

Bad news is you have to remove all wheels and seat posts...:deal

Lotsa hills too, we did good!!:clap

Yeah they're a bit high.

I hope you're not ragging on my long sleeve jersey, I just got that (adidas), it's nice and warm.

The shirt underneath is an ancient HIND running top.


Nothing wrong with cheap....:evil :deal
