Thanks for the pictures.

We are currently getting more ice/snow/ice/rain/ice/snow crap, so the this is a nice change of scenery. All I am doing is scraping ice and pushing snow.

Have fun with the new bike!!!!

Fetish.......bike that is.

Hey guys,

I am thinking of getting a Fetish fixie, I think it's called the Attack.

Does anyone have any experience with Fetish?

I am in Australia, does anyone have any ideas on shipping a bike to Australia?

Or, is anyone coming here for a visit and can you ride my bike on the plane?

Matt

Here at least a few times. Its OK tho, there's ALWAYS someone that ain't seen it.


Ride report from yesterday or Stick Me Rides Her Birfday Present for the First Time. Drove out to the 'rents' yesterday afternoon for a few reasons so we/I decided that a road ride was in order 'cause 1. it was sorta sunny, and 2. it was sorta warm. So we trundled down the road in the no-longer-ADVTruck to the 'rents' out in what WAS the middle of BFE.

Go to the secret entrance. Denied.

Go round to the front. Locked.



This is certainly starting out badly... Called Mom who was at the Soc Sec office and she came and unlocked the door, then went back to work(sucks). Stick Me and I got ready to go riding when I realized she didn't have cleats on her shoes for the ATACs I'd put on her bike, didn't have a helmet, and didn't have warm gloves. So, I had her try on some of my little brother's shoes. Road shoes worked. That means taking the ATACs off and installing the Look-style pedals from little brother's bike. Yet ONE MORE FARGING DELAY! By this time, I'm fairly cranky 'cause it shouldn't be this fucking tough to get two people out the door.

She was wearing a pair of (my?) Specialized winter gloves and little brother's toe booties. Any effort to make riding as comfy as possible 'cause she's still so new at it that pretty much anything uncomfortable makes it no fun. So I sacrifice my stuff sometimes to make her warm.

So off we go. Into the farming community that is Nokesville. By this time, its roughly 1600 hours and guess what?! Rush hour! Thank doG that rush hour out in the country means that there's only certain roads that get 'busy.' The rest? Not so much! So I took her on the 'hour loop.' Flat. Not too much traffic except for a few roads, and I'd picked a direction that meant we'd be coming at the traffic insteada having it pass us. Better for nervous new cyclists ya know!

So right outta the gate, Stick Me's got it in the big meat and is hammering away. WTF? This road ain't THAT busy! She continues with the hammer session till about the hill by the recycling bin where she just don't have the skillz to stand and sprint up the hill like I woulda. So she gets bogged down cadence-wise and we crest the top. Bam! Back at it. I goofed up the first turn 'cause it'd been 10 years since I'd ridden out here, but we got slowed down before it was too late.

After a bit, she figgers out her legs are tired. Well, duh. Whaddya want after starting out like that?! So we ratchet down the speed and cruise.

Only one 'oops!' moment with the pedals when we unclipped to wait for traffic. She hadta toe her way cross the intersection 'cause she couldn't get her foot in the pedal. Didn't fall, tho it'll happen...

Got back about an hour later with the first ride on the new bike under her belt. She FINALLY figgered out that clipless pedals are a good thing. I've only been telling her since we started riding. Got home and told her that off-road it helps too 'cause yer feet are attached to the bike and you've got more control, but she's gonna hafta try em out and see for her own self (again.)

There's new houses out on my loop. BIG ones. On acres. I'll hafta see what I can do about bringing a camera on the next ride 'cause where the 'rents' house is, is actually quite picturesque for rolling VA farmland. Miss riding out there! Hop out the back door (when its NOT rush hour) and be riding on roads that are deserted.

Now I gotta clean the bikes again. We rode thru a wet section and they're filthy! Good thing I replaced my workstand!

They seem decent enough. Haven't ridden one, but the prices on the web site seem

Haven't the foggiest about shipping to Aus. Can't help you there.

Gummee - silly question I know but how do you clean your bikes after a ride (road and/or mtn) ? I know how to clean cars and bikes (hot soapy water) but push-bikes ?

Should be simple I guess....

Pretty much anything'll work. For big dirt, spray with a hose and wash like a cage/MC. Chain? I use the PBS degreaser stuff. Seems to do OK.

I really like Pedro's Bike Lust. Makes things all shiny once yer done.

For mtn and cross bikes, try spraying the downtube with Pledge (or other furniture polish) so the dirt'll come off easier. Pam on pedals for muddy rides.
