Going back tonight for my second hit this week. Nothing has had this kind of impact on me. Since it is 55F out and sunny right now, I'm going to take my Serotta out to loosen up a bit before the track. It's like legal crack, I swear.

Too cool! Sounds like a LOT of fun!!

This is my '01 Kona Hahanna. The only difference now is it has street tires on it. I also have some rigid forks but I haven't installed them yet. I don't have any trails close so I ride mostly street with it. My back is too bad to ride a full road bike so the more upright of this bike works well.

Am I the only tall guy in the bicycle thread?????

These bike pictures look to have "tiny" frames. :D :D :D

Seriously though, it looks like you have a nice Kona and have fun with it.

I'm not tall, but I am 5'11". That is a 17" frame. I bought it used and that's why the seat is so high, lol.

I am only 6'3", so not too tall, but that picture makes the bike frame look small. Maybe it is the angle of the picture or the trailer behind it, or probably just me.

I need to take some pictures, and post them up at some point. I like seeing everyone's bikes. Maybe we should start a bicycle "picture only" thread here. :D

Rollers, rollers, and rollers. Ice, snow on ice, ice, and then more snow. I am getting my mountain bike close, and then I can hopefully start riding to work at least.
