Yeah, I probably would have either rounded up or said "almost a hundred miles" <grin> So now I feel challenged since this year I haven't been over 63 miles.

Exciting Ride

We’ve had a very slow start to summer around here - temperatures in the single digits (C) at night, mid-teens during the days and almost daily showers, often with thunder and lightning. But it looked...

Like Timothy said, I'd go with at least a hardtail. All depends too on what most of your riding will be. Surfaces, elevation, etc.etc. So many factors before choosing the right mountain bike.

I like two brake levers for several reasons. One is so that I can brake with one hand or the other while I wave with...

There can be a drastic difference in effort between covering 30 miles in a few hours vs. covering 11 miles in the same...

I enjoyed Heartbreak when I was fit, too. Hoping the thought of doing it again will entice me into some good training. Watching all the Clydesdales pass me by is further motivation. Embarrassing.

I try to stay emotionally detached from inanimate objects.

One day I can't live without something. Then it breaks or dies, new is purchased and I wish I had upgraded years ago.

The real trick to buying a used bike is getting the right size. The best bike in the world if it's significantly too big or significantly too small isn't going to be a lot of fun to ride.

What Ride Did You Do For The 4th?

I rode the ‘76er. Still pretty warm and humid here in the Carolinas but high thin clouds made it feel better than the last week or so. Nice group. Most everyone ran out of fluids towards the end. The...

Best way to acclimate to the heat is to ride in it. Low levels of vitamin D are associated with aging, so no surprise to see that in this forum. I take 5000 IU every day, doctor's orders.

The Eastern Sierra Double was last weekend. The weather was changeable and iffy. We had sun. We had rain. We had hail. The highlight (or lowlight) for me was a 30 MPH+ wet-braked descent down to...

I would have got rid of the doctor instead of the bike!

Honestly, I would get a 2nd opinion.
