Old is new again!
 
One of my resolutions this year is to get back out and ride. Tweaked my knee in 2002 trying to keep up with the fast guys in (thanks Perry) New York Shitty and it has never been the same. Lo and behold I lose a bet and have to go to yoga which is proving to be the ticket!

Where is that old NORBA license?

Here is my trusty steed. 94 Yet ARC made in the old Durango factory. Custom powdercoat job with a mix of first and second generation XTR.
:clap

Keep on that yoga, for sure! The flexy kind of strength is sooo often overlooked by cyclists, which is why we all end up stiff, and with bum knees. Good onya.

There was one similar to that on CL Denver a bit back. FWI hear, they were nice riding bikes.

Its hard to beat XTR. :nod ESPECIALLY the first gen stuff. Basically D/A for the mountain. :thumb

Ride fast! Take chances! The stories are better. Ask Stick Me!

That is a very similar color palette the Georgia Dome used. It is finally going to be repainted, red and black.

I have taken a few yoga classes over the last three weeks and I have really enjoyed it. I look forward to becoming stronger and more balanced. It should really help with trackstands. Now I will need to get a fixie. :doh :lol3

pssssst... Your tires are flat. :norton Or is this more part of the rehab? :lol3

I scoped out some local trails last night (I just moved so I need to find the local training action). The bike is not due until the 8th and I'm going nuts for it! Now I just need to get the adapter for the big honkin' hub up front so I can take it on the back of the pig. So now I have a fat possum and a pig... What does this say about me?

I just rode a mountain bike for the first time yesterday. Some friends and I did 8 miles along the James river here in Richmond. Talk about exercise!! 200 yards into it, I thought my heart was going to explode and my legs catch fire. I had a blast, though, and may just have a new hobby on my hands. . .

I didn't know the James river was so beautiful right there at the city.

Bikes on Bikes Baby!
 
That is a beautiful set up!!! What year is your GS?

Thanks. It was on the '05 GS as well.

'06. I hate to say it, but for a while, it won't be getting too many miles as I'm going to do the pedal bike to work for a while- new year's resolution and all...

Jamesginther 01-02-2008 01:28 PM

Pedaling it great TOO!
 
I do most of my riding at lunch time, cuz I just can't get myself motivated for the ride home from work. Either way, it's on 2 wheels...good luck to you.

I'm looking for my first road bike....my friends are razzing me about riding this damn Schwinn MTB all year-something like 1400 miles. Ahh, but pulling all that weight keeps me strong!

So, whadya got?

ouch folks, be careful out there!

ghist of thestory, a fixie apparently collided with a fedex truck that was turning right, this is right after a steep narrow downhill where the signs TELL bicyclists to use the whole lane and cars not to pass. the fedex truck apparently didn't stop, may not have known he even hit the kid, the cyclist is dead, but the bike is unscratched, they are looking for the fedex driver.

So tell me, please, am I completely crazy to even contemplate spending $1600 on this?

http://www.bianchi.it/common/product...ages/Y7BD8.jpg

Are the specs worthy of that kind of price? Is it a rip-off. I can see a $200-300 hit for the Ducati tie-in. I like the style, and I need to replace my old Trek and I've always wanted a bianchi.
Thinking, perhaps naively, that getting a new bike will be added incentive to ride more often.

I just bought this one for $1599 on sale ($1000 off :thumb). Full carbon, all Ultegra and DuraAce. You can find some sweet deals on '07's out there right now depending on what you are going to do with it.

Yes, you are completely out of your gord to pay that cash for that thing. Look at what I paid for what I got and Makalu paid for a road bike.

That- and flame away- Ducatis are junk. :lol3 But don't tell Casey Stoner that...
