Here are my two most ridden (non-motored) cycles:

Jamis Satellite





Redline mono9 with street tires, been commuting to and from work on this one. Newest bike, like it a whole lot!

So I got in TWO rides today.

One for a little over an hour on the bicycle and the other for ?? on the new ATK.

So I hadta ride into a headwind for the first 6/10ths of the ride, then a nnnniiiiccceee tailwind for the ride home. Actually went out of my way to climb a hill. WTF was I thinkin?!

Then I saw Stick Me off to work(sucks) and actually got the ATK started. Took a bit o' doing since this is the second time I've hadta kick this bike into life. :hotandsweatyafterkickingfor10min Rode right past a cop on the way out to the little patch of desert. Not even a wave.

So what IS the ticket for riding a dirt-only bike on the streets?

I managed to get to a gate with a 'no motorized vehicle' sign, so I hopped into a housing dev. and went around that section.

Kept looking behind me for Johnny Law. Luckily, I didn't see him! Also luckily, there's a little trail of sorts next to the roads out here.

As I was riding down the bicycle lane hoping and praying for that section of dirt to start, I noticed it was getting a wee bit on the dark side.

Hmmm maybe I should turn back now?

Nah I'll keep going on a short loop.

Y'know, its MUCH easier to see whatcher doin in daylight.

I managed to get home with only one slight mishap with a curb. Hope I didn't ding my rim! No, I haven't looked.

Observations: its MUCH easier to ride this bike in the dirt than the GS

This seat is HARD

Its MUCH easier to ride when you can see

Did I mention the seat's hard?

Sand's not as big an issue on a lighter bike. GS =

Woulda been nice to be able to see

I love my Monocog 29er, but I want one of these.

Nice. I've been dying to get out riding. I had some rides planned for this weekend, but it decides to rain which means it most likely snowed in the mountains.

Sounds good. What do you suggest for a cheap (~$100) trainer. Sometimes I'll be watching TV and wish I could burn some fat and build some stamina.

A used oil-filled jobbie from someone. Mucho quiet. Can be a great workout.

Right now, I have a set of rollers and a Cateye Psychostimulator (aka cyclosimulator) The Psychostimulator is one of my favorite trainers ever. Not real quiet tho. It WILL kick yer ass.

Start checking craigslist. Buy one used. They're generally not used very much.

I'll be checking CL. My local CL is sorta lame in the bike department but you never know. Is this a good deal? I'd like some clip-in's but I'm cheap.

You're better off checking Phx. More people.

PBS has a few shops there too. Bout time for them to start selling off winter stuff.

AFA the shoes: No clue. Pedals are a decent deal. Clips and straps went out of style a while ago, so since they don't have clips and straps, they're clipLESS pedals.

HTH

Yeah PHX does have a few trainers that I'd be interested in, it's just a long drive back and forth. I'd rather drive to Flag and hit up some trails up there. I'm not up to date on the lingo. Last serious MTB I owned, before my recent revisit to MTB, was a Trek Y frame that had clipless pedals. The first time I tried them out I ate it at a stop fighting to get my feet free. Not my finest moment.

I was just checking that one out. Will I run into problems with 29er wheels? I'm guessing no because the roadie bikes have bigger wheels too right?
