I've been on that bandwagon (mountain bikes)for a long time, road bikes even longer. I'm in for a weekend peddle power gathering.

Being a cheap ass I will stick with yesterdays bikes. Especially since so few of the new bikes are REAL dual sport bikes and improvements are made in electronics and farkles not real preformance. Show me what I could do on a on a new bike that my current bikes don't allow me to do. Oh wait, there is something.......












I can spend forever trying to get the ABS to turn off before going off road.

Cool.

Can't watch that video, makes my nuts hurt. Had a couple failures over the years, a fork and 2 front rims. Fork snapped in half above the lower fork bearing and both front wheel failed at the bonded seam which is why I only buy welded rims now. One wheel and the fork put me in the hospital.

As far as speed goes, I used to be somewhat fast, now I'm considered somewhat fat. My racing license says I'm a Cat 1 Mtb racer and 2 years ago I could do that loop in about 1:20, now I just ride it to survive to the end. Years ago I used to go to the Western Reserve SX races and do the Mtb demo races at half time giving me the chance to race both in one night. Changing in and out of riding gear was a real pain in the ass.

If you guys do get a ride going, I'll try to lure Oh-Tard and his wife down to ride also. They're both good people.

Luckily, that is all the further I make it. My wallet or my wife prevents me from acting on it.

Depends on what your skill level is and what you want to ride. I know some trails to poach and been working on a route to Coshocton via gravel roads. The city closed down the trails near my house.

Heading down to Crow Canyon Saturday to ride the demo bikes and the A loop if you're interested

Do you have any with a banana seat? Those all look like they would ride up my ass.

I can't imagine doing 100 miles there. I did half the loop (bailed to the road once I hit the covered bridge) with the Spokejunkies back in 2007 and that was bad enough. I'll stick to Alum Creek.

I have one with a fat seat but it's a ladies frame but if you ever decided to pedal with a dress on, you know where to come to get a bike. There is something about a woman in a dress while riding, however, I know for sure, you would never have that same allure.

Yeah, you or I would require a proctologist to remove the seat after our first mile.

A little loose eh? You must be hanging with Whitey, I remember his slogan "Once you've been with Whitey, you're no longer tighty" or something like that
