Sad. Very sad. That poor bike picked the wrong owner.

Me? I'm not quite 'break out the q-tip and clean it every ride' kind of guy, but cleaner = lasts longer and works better. I'll go thru mine every other week or so unless its been wet/muddy. The bike gets cleaned and re-lubed EVERY wet/muddy ride.

My first mtn bike (87 Rockhopper) was 27# before I put the Manitou 2 on it. Went up to 30# after that. ...but man oh man! was that inch of travel worth it!

Looks like a nice beater to me.

Nothing a few sheets of scotch brite and a rag full of pledge won't fix. That's going to clean up to a nice ride!

My Kona Tanuki just after I got it last summer. My first full suspension bike and I really like it so far. I might splurge and get a dropper post this season.

Done. Throw this up in Inmates and the Bicycle Thread in Sports, too, and you might get more traffic.

I rode the MS150 in SoCal a few years ago and it was a wonderful experience.

I've already posted the bike, but figured I'd show off my new rack setup.

That is sweet! Made me walk to the garage and start thinking of how to mount my Thule Criterium.

I wrenched for an MS150 years ago when I was wrenching.

As for # vs $$ I've weighed pretty much the same since 1988 except for the two times I broke my leg-atrophy sheds a lot of weight

Despite running*, I gained appx 40# when I jacked up my back. Didya know doing the clean and jerk on an RT is bad for your lower back? Neither did I till the DMV tester lady 'wasn't looking at me' and that's what I did.

I'm back down to within 5-10# of where I was in '05 (165ish) when I officially got my MC license despite dropping my bike during the test. I'd *like* to get back to where I was in college (155#) but I don't see that happening without adding MANY more miles/week.

*make that hashing. Hashing = lots of Stone Pale Ale = lots of empty calories. Add some junk food and presto chango! there's a fat SOB looking back at me from the mirror.

Hey...unless somebody's paying you to run, or you're a medal contender...there is noooo reason to carb load any other way.

Screwing up your back sucks big time. That'll change you from a three-sport racing fiend, to a couch potato in no time.
