I got out last Sunday and enjoyed the sunshine and warm temps a bit. Still loving the 7.5FX, very sweet commuter.

Very nice cross bike. I've got a singlespeed that I use for late night neighborhood laps, and I bought a pair of Performance's "Forte" Mtn. bike flats for it. Very nice pedals for the $14.99 I paid on sale.......

nice bike (again...) scary

two of my riding partners have that same ride for winter fun... as you know dont accidentally get true BMX pedals, as they are a different thread size that mtb/road pedals... some pedal types offer flats that clip in to the clipless pedals for commuting pleasure with out having to change out the pedals, i know you can get them for spd sytle pedals. Less risk of damaging those pricey threads! Man... either you have too many hobbies, or too much time!

Recumbents are super dumb

Recumbents are totally stupid...not good for climbing or skidding or popping a wheelie or anything associated with fun.

They are the quad of cycling.

I need some good 'flat' pedals for commuting in my work/hiking boots. Got any recommendations?

Pretty sweet bike, Scary.

Building your own is the only way to go.



Only have the Santa Cruz Chameleon left, and that is collecting dust.

One thing about cycling/racing.....you are only as good as your last ride/race.

@Yater....good onya for meeting Lance, I would like to shake his hand one day.

Man those are SO sweet. I've had my eye on the regular nova for a few years now but haven't pulled the trigger. That's a really capable bike.....on/off-road and light touring....nice.
