My Father just got back from riding to the Everest base camp through Tibet and Nepal. We'll be editing the footage soon. In hind sight he says taking a single speed wasn't the smartest idea!

Here's are project we did together.

Love the rollers. I ditched my trainer and hardly use
my spin bike because of the rollers. How long have
you been trying? A doorway works well for that also.

Only 2 days... it'll come. And yeah, I hate the trainer. I'd been looking for rollers for a while to replace it. These came up dirt cheap on Craig's so I grabbed em

I took my bike to have the first service done now that I have a few hundred miles. Asked the guy about upgrading components and he said to get a new bike! Shifting isn't great on the sora components. Inconsistent shifts and some freewheeling between shifts. Thought the bike shop could dial it out. They didn't.

At least they tightened the spokes and the wheels feel more solid.

Now for that clicking while pedaling.

Very cool. I love that fork if nothing more than the bling factor. Is yours rigid front or do they make a carbon left suspension fork? Or knife?

80mm travel suspension utensil. It has lock out and climbs like a road bike when used.
However, if you for get to take the lock out, out it is not forgiving like a road fork. jArRiNg!!

nice looking bike, Foot2big.
Here's my new Mountain Bike, a Trek Fuel EX8, with Fox Shocks, and the rest. What a difference full suspension makes.
