Hell, there's a local rider I know who owns NINETEEN bicycles.
How many can he ride at once?
Well it's not so much that as the turnover....see, I'm a bike BUYER, not a bike SELLER
It was this ad that sold me on it. I'm sure I'll be able to ride just as well when I get mine.

Florida has sure changed a lot since when I was born there....
Yeh, it looks a lot more like Colorado now.
The current Park tools just have the 22mm thread, which is Campy, Shimano, and nearly every other commonly encountered crankset with threaded arms.
The old Park tool had 22mm on one side, and 23mm on the other for TA cranks. ;-)
Lol... guess there's no need for suspension in Florida. If all the trails are like that there, go hardtail. Lighter and more efficient.
The trails are not all like that. Below is another trail in the same park, and like the others, it's much worse in person than it appears on the video. The one time I rode these Red trails, I took such a hammering that I'll probably never go on them again, even with a FS bike.
My fs weighs 19 lbs and is more effecient everywhere except road climbs.
That's how I remember it, but couldn't comment on the current item.
Note to Gummee and anyone else who runs into this: Stronglight cranks are yet a different size and if you try to use the TA puller YOU WILL DESTROY THE THREADS. Stronglight are 23.35mm, just to piss us off.
23.35mm??!? thats whack. thats not even a english size.
SheldonBrown.com is saying 23.35mm is pre-1982....
Yeah, I'm old. And 15 years out of the business.
Not "old", just "more experienced" ....
Y'all have never seen Ricky's setup have y'all?
in the 'what makes you smile category:' I was on my way to the ride last nite and realized that the socks I was wearing were the same age as the car I was driving.
Both are darn near old enough to vote!
Hell, I've got socks older than most of the people I ride with. One pair was purchased back in 1981. :eek1
You've been around since 02 and don't know Ricky? You're not pulling my leg are you?!
I've got wheelsets in the same category.
So if I've gotta carbon fiber road bike and find a couple spots where the top-layer of finish has been scratched away (thereby exposing the fiber to the atmosphere), should I cover the spot with something? lacquer? clear fingernail polish? snot?
Don't care how it looks - just didn't know if there's some weird quirk about carbon fiber turning to jello if it's exposed to the atmosphere or something?
I recall being told that exposure to UV light and air is damaging to CF. The CF parts on my '96 Ducati were covered with a thin layer of clearcoat so as to showcase the fiber weave everyone seems to love, but after a few years you could clearly see evidence of sun bleaching. Eventually cracks started to form at the edges, and the parts had to be replaced. I've noticed that on my new bicycles, all the CF is covered in opaque paint, not just clearcoat. I assume this is being done to protect the CF against the damage from UV light. Painting your entire frame in some opaque color might be cost prohibitive, but I would at least put clearcoat back on the exposed portions you mention.
