Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Is it cheap? A rigid fork that would fit 27.5 x 2.6 or so and disc breaks would be nice

Yeah I left that thing hanging in the carport when I moved out of the last house. Couldn't think of anything else to do with it.

Since Tuesday I now own a pour over and a French press. Haven't tried the new pour over yet. Tomorrow I will and a report will be duly filed. It was purchased by my wife and is not the guru approved V60. I'll not file divorce papers until I try it out. Then I'll file.

Here is my last KHS at Sycamore Canyon. It has a Manitou shock and fork. I sold it last year.
A buddy of mine had a 7000. It rode like my Cannondale - brutal. Not quite Klein brutal, though.

It was magnitudes harder than leaf activity.
