I used to ride some cheap rollers, I got online way back in the day. They had plain bearisn in place of ball bearings. QUite the workout. I kept a high rpm cadence above 90, and usually about 100. I got so I could sit up no hands and take my shirt off, without crashing. Then I got bored and started with the TV.

Bad idea, watching a video tape of a mountian descent. Leaned into the corner with the tape...

Yep, straight off the rollers, across the basement and into the daybed.

Missed the TV though...

Gave those things away and took to riding in the snow. fewer crashes!

Tonight I get to test my fully upgraded old hardtail on the bike path.

I've replaced everything from the original bike save the seat post, pedals, frame and skewers.

Standard tire and tube should work. 85% sure.

Seriously, that looks very cool. Never heard of them before. Might have to put my Kreitlers on CL, too.

So when are we going to ride?

Hey you're the filmaker, say when, I have a good tripod for you to film me on.... seriously.

I'm in Fort Lee now, right near route 9, excellent rides to Piermont/Nyack.

Or were you talking about motorcycle rides?

Perry,

If you like the mtn bike you have spring for a set of wheels with some straight block gears (14,15,16,17 etc) with a set of chain rings for the road being 52 39 it should work out that ea single gear change is really the next gear so that the 39/20 gear would be first and 39/14 would be 7th then the 52/20 would be 8th. I dont remember the brand but we used to get some 26x1.50 road tires in the shop for guys that were commuting on their mtn bikes. A quick wheel swap on Fri afternoon and it was off to trail ride for the weekend.

Its been a while since I worked in a shop but so I'm not upto date on all the new bikes that are out - good luck in your search

Thanks Teach, this thread was started almost 3 yrs ago so I'm long gone from the Mtn bike set up, appreciate the input though.

Got 3 road bikes now; 06 Cannondale Systm 6 Dura Ace, Raleigh CX with fender and rack job, and a Surley Steamroller fixed and all Brooks'd out...


cheers.
