There's a few things that I regret about them days. A big one is not actually buying a MC when I was there. Had my M cert. on my DL, just never bought a motorized bike.

Hey, Ive been called worse!

Uh, no never called me back. It required me using one of their vehicles and I have a performance award on my driving record.

My first Mtn. bike, a Schwinn Impact, had the Biopace chainrings. I didn't know any better. It did OK.

Just got back from picking up my mtb at the LBS. Let's see, $136 for new front and rear Deore derailleurs + installation labor, on a bike I planned to sell in order to help fund a 29er. Looks like it will be staying in the garage as a loner for guests. Must ride this weekend.

It actually wasn't touching the derailleur as it was in a hollow. I checked before laying it down.

Cyclocross is an ongoing memorial to an offroad ride gone horribly wrong. Somewhat like the British playing cricket in the Douglas Adams books.

All the gear, except the helmet! Circa 1985.

My Dad sold this bike to a co-worker while I was in college...tells me as he is handing me $200. That bike was priceless to me!

Sweet photo! If you have any more, I'd love to see them. Vintage old-school BMX photos always get me going.

Maintenance day at K7's

The Bacchetta now sports a new chain, new cassette, new brakes (BB7's) & cables and I installed my Shimano spd/type pedals. I also splurged on a new, fancy idler.

"That's right - we bad"


Tomorrow, we ride!

Conditions were the muddiest I've seen on the middle loop today.

Remnants of snow, which is quite rare around these parts.

I take a right at the Y just past the tree upon which the bike is leaning. I have not been able to work up the nerve to try the kink at the halfway point on this log. Some day. A guy on a big $$$ carbon full susser ate it just before this pic was taken. I debated whether to snap pics or ask if he was alright... chose the latter.
