fold it up and toss it in the car... I know my Burley Deelite takes about 30 seconds to fold up.

Haven't seen em on rear racks, but I HAVE seen em on roof racks. Get three short trays and no fork mounts and strap that sucker on!

Well, I wasn't going to ride today. That is......I wasn't going to ride until I ate that gallon container of cottage cheese. Gastrointestinally, this should be a wonderful ride. (No, that's probably not an actual word.)

Top's off right now.

I may be able to fold it and stand it up in the cargo area behind the rear seat.

Or I'll have to get a safari rack to carry the trailer.

Oh, and the X0 isn't mine. I've got an old rigid MTB, but I'd like a cross bike.

The Performance knock-off takes a bit longer, but it does collapse. I'll have to try it out.

Now's the time! Cross season is just 5mos away! Speaking of which... I really need to go riding!

Wakefield Park usually hosts a 'cross series. Heard it was a hoot!

Gummee's Garage Bicycle Repair Shop is just about open for bidness.

Got the workbench up, tools hung in their assigned spots, and the floor swept. All I'm missing is a little light ($5 shoplight from the home despot), a workstand, and an extension cord. I'm gonna bust a gut down to ABQ in the AM to get the new GS-Adventure, so it'll be a bit yet till I get the work area 'finished.'

Pics 'soon.' Promise.

Also pending: 1" x 16" pipe sections to hang the spare wheels, a 'hang the bike on the wall' setup, and some kind of coat rack to hang the MC gear.

Cross season? As in competetive riding?

Does this look like the face of a competitive bicyclist?



I rode around the back patio with the kids last evening and was sweating my nuts off. The kids decided it was a good time to play Red Light/Green Light, not realizing the implications for me and my relatively new to me clipless pedals. Got lots of good practice, and managed not to fall on my ass.

I'm still trying to find the balance, if there is one for me, between feeling like I'm sliding off the front of my seat and having it crush my man-bits.

Who said anything about being competetive? Go do it anyway! I have been! As long as yer trying, you'll still get SOMEONE yelling for you!

Its a neat feeling!

Try yer LBS. They may be able to order one. PBS is a maybe. I don't recall if they're still carrying them or not.

Odds-n-Endos?
Excel Sports?
CO Cyclist? (I keep forgetting I HERE now... I can see both those guys IN PERSON! Woot!)

If not there, then the other 'big names' in mail order stuff: Cambria, etc


Now, why you wanna change? Yours past the 'lube it up, and spread it out' stage? I've hadta do the lube job on mine a few times in the 15 years I've owned it. Still have the original 'backup' plunger in its little baggie.

HTH,

It's much like the Special Olympics where every finisher is a winner and anyone who finishes behind the winner is a loser.
