For y'all commuter in the summer types, Keen has a new SPD compatible sandal out. Aptly named...

The Commuter.

Me? I haven't been on the bike in a week and a half. Trip to Chicago and 3 straight days of hashing around the city and then working everyday to make up for the weekend I took off. :bluduh Gotta get a ride in today tho. Right after I mow, change the oil in the Bitchin Camaro, etc.

I'm not a "sandal guy" but I looked at those briefly.

$115.

I'd ride in my Danners first.

Doing any serious riding in sandals make about as much sense as doing some serious welding while wearing sandals.

I agree, but there's lots of ways of skinning that cat...

Did a crit in SPD sandles once. Got a couple of funny looks esp. when I got some guy at the line for a prime. Don't think I'd mtn bike with them, though!

I have a few pairs of Keens. Each is indeed worth their money.

Just got in from a short toodle 'round the block.' Didn't but once get out of Zone 1 and that was on a fairly trafficked road and there was a slight incline to get over. (when I say slight, I really mean *slight!)

Felt good to be out, but as per the trip to employee health at the new gig went, I could feel the high BP that she sez I have. :bluduh Ride more and it goes away. Sit on my kiester and drink, and guess what?! High BP! Amazing.

Fun MTB racing video
 
I am biased towards the boys from Yeti. When I got in the sport in 91 they ruled and despite some bumps in the road continue to be a great company. Check this video!

Dear Bike Nerds:

Today, I rode my piece of shit $300 Diamond Back mountain bike 19 miles up to Manchester, Vermont, got off the bike and ran a 5k in 28:45 (yeah, slow, whatever. I'm old). Then I had lunch with my sweeties, hung around a bit and rode home.

I didn't once wear spandex or yell things at passing cars.

So F.U. bike nerds.

Today Paul and I rode for about 22 miles along the river trail near hear, on our mountain bikes, his a brand new, week old Rockhopper Disc or something, and my aged Rocky Mountain Glacier...

I did some cleaning yesterday checking on the inner bolt circle... Nope gear won't fit. But, I did notice I seem to have worn some of of the bits...:huh

Ah well that's what the internet os for. Buy more parts...:clap

if you are referring to the chainring teeth that look half worn down, Shimano made them like that to ease front shifts. Some of the teeth might still be worn, hard to tell from the photo.

maybe you don't have to buy any after all.

+1

The smaller teeth help the derailleur push the chain on or off of the chainwheel. Smaller chainwheels have a shorter lifespan but I don't see any pronounced "hooking" on the teeth. I say ride em.
