WOW

My doG how does he do that ? It's beyond belief that people can do that sort of thing. The thing is though, the tricks he pulls in the vid were all succesful - just think of the spills he has pefecting them

well, note the beginning where he blows that fence hop-n-roll several times.

i've watched a guy on one of those 26" stunter bikes practicing a rail-hop where he was riding out on a railroad track rail, coming to a full stop, balancing, then 'hopping' to the other rail(!) doing a 180. he must have tried it 100 times and only pulled it off completely smoothly once or twice.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome.


Thank doG we have insane people that finally get it right and put it on youtube!

What could taking a shower do to possibly remove any banned substance from his system? I know the rules are that he had to remain in view of the tester, but c'mon. This guy had been tested at all hours, and surprise tested many times. The end result has been ZERO positive results. The 7 tours in a row are a huge boil on the Frenchies ass, and they will try anything to get rid of it (Him). I hope he rides and places well, and raises money for the LA foundation. I love the movie quote by Michael Caine that goes " There are two thing's I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other peoples cultures. And the French!!!

I'm probably up to a half-dozen viewings since the first time I saw it linked someplace yesterday. Usually this sort of urban stunt riding doesn't do much for me -- I like cycling as a reason and means to get *out* of the city. But this was really beautiful.

More information on your HASHES please!!!

I have been off running for about two months and was doing 10k's on the treadmill even, but I tried running again after some time off because of the torn calf muscle and it kicked my butt.
Check yer PMs in a bit.

Just got back from a drunkfest 3000 in Rocky Point, MEX. LOTS of from Thurs to Sun PM. Lemme check into hashes in yer neck o the woods online and I'll get back to ya. Worst case, google hash house harriers +your closest major city.

Hashing, while it *involves* running isn't *about* the running. Be careful. I started hashing at about 170 and I'm up to about 195 now.

Gummee,

Sounds like you had a great time. Me and my SO went riding the other day. It's finally been nice. Upper 70's with light wind. We decided to try one of the advanced trails. It was not a trail just a rock garden with catus thrown in. I ate it a few times, including falling onto a big catus.

Pedals

Need some pedal advice.

Last year, I bought a used surly instigator. It's a little small for me, (it's a medium, I probably should have a large) but I bought it purely for goofing off - finally learning to control a wheelie, riding onto and off the benchs and picnic tables at the park, maybe some trails if I ever get back into shape.



I think it outweighs me, but it's perfect for my stated purpose.

I don't know what kind of pedals to put on it though. I'm a fan of clipless, but this should get some platform jobs, I think.

Is something like this worth looking at?
