do your feet still reach the pedals?
Was going through my Go Pro photos and found this one
Mud and SPD pedals still don't mix well.
just bought a Diamond Back Sorrento with a ridgid fork for $20.00.
Bottom bracket may be trashed but it will become my third single speed rehab project.
Rented a Kona today. Nice ride.
If that is the seat post fully extended, maybe 29er's are just not for you..
As a rule you want to have your bars at the most level with your seat, if not lower..
Thanks but I stand most of the time and I ride with the seat low on MTB.
29ers pretty much aren't for me but I was in Pemberton BC and wanted to hit the trails for the day so I rented what they had.
Yof the timeou are my hero, this days I'm weak I need to ride seated most of the time
Oh, I see..
Ps: Funny we are in Minneapolis for the "weekend"..
Welcome to the 21st century! I like buying old stuff made in the west.
True dat but its just a shame.. Would love to support a local only bike company though
Anyone got any info on these bikes?
I've read a few discussions about them. What I took away was that you've only got so much "whoopass". Having more ways to apply that to driving yourself forward does not give you more power, just lets you spread the load over more body parts - either all together or at different times (like after your legs need a rest).
The drawback is the additional weight of the 2nd drivetrain.
Here's some good reading:
Sweet! Are you going to "the fair"?
I have a bent but no handcycle info
Bentrider online forum probably has someone
It makes little sense from an aerobic perspective; the designs clearly don't consider the disparate cross sectional areas of each muscle group, so you very quickly experience the anaerobic shift in the upper-body portion, even if you're just "mailing it in." You could design some gearing to accomodate the difference in power, which strikes me as an awkwardly out-of-synch experience.
Want to feel the power of your whole body contributing to the power stroke? Get out of your seat and start hammering. Your whole body becomes a linkage, anchored at the bars. But I guess that's not an option when you're bent.
Here is our current line up:
Singlespeed Litespeed Siena, titanium frame, a little more than 14 pounds. I may convert it to 1x10 or 2x10 later and get a dedicated singlespeed/fixie.
Specialized Sirrus Expert. Aluminum with carbon forks and seat stays. I now have it set for various modes and it is decently light at 17 plus pounds.
Multi-surface with Schwalbe Racing Ralphs 700x35c:
Primarily road/hard surface 700x28c
Santa Cruz Blur LT, under 30 pounds
My wife's bikes:
My son's Trek which gets ridden very little:
You have some nice bikes.
Love the Litespeed and the Santa Cruz
Thanks and so do I.
My "go fast" bike
Specialized did a real cool, gold anodized on those bikes, in '07. The picture doesn't do it justice.
