It's a big wheel joke. Try one, you'll understand then.
Colt .45, not for supermodels.

Supermodels Don't Drink Colt .45 is actually a song by the Dillinger Four
The lyrics (http://www.metrolyrics.com/super-mod...nger-four.html) and song jumped in my head while observing some of the other riders around me at a trailhead about a week ago while heading out on a ride.

"FUCK it is hot out today"
Said while on a long climb on the first sunny day in awhile when it is only 60 degrees.

Yup. I'm that idiot that ruins a joke by needing it explained. Sorry
I ran into a guy yesterday who rode by as I was working on a trail. He was talking about doing that big stage race in BC. I asked him how he did and he said he had a few 'unscheduled dismounts'. A little perplexed, I said 'wait, so you have PLANNED dismounts?'
Apparently that's a thing. I had no idea. I've always just ridden until I fall off.STRAVA: Enabling dorks everywhere to get trails shut down........ all for the sake of a race on the internet.

I am both a much shittier rider, and occasionally much better rider, than I think.

1. If you're on a mountain bike then bears are scared of you. Actually happened on my last ride. That's right bear, you're my bitch now! 2. The Silver Star mountain bike park has better strawberry picking then riding. 3. A 36oz can of miller high life is better than a 24 oz can of miller high life when riding.smoke crack and worship satan

The new bike I need to get for my 13 year old daughter is going to be more expensive (even with my 20% off wholesale EP price) than my first 10 bikes put together. The best part is I also need to get one for her twin sister

Don't ride around blind turns too fast after a storm.
I really should bleed my brakes.Take everything you like seriously, except yourselves.

So, he's been riding pro cat for the last 12 years while I've been having kids and playing dad. Damn this is humbling, at least I'm still faster than all the guys from the office.
"Hey take a left right up there". Steep and technical is the only equalizer that will allow me to keep him in sight.
Post ride. I need to lose the 30 pounds I used to not have back when I took this shit seriously.

so say you a turn has a max speed of 15 mph, and your going 25. BB7s take say 20 feet to slow 10 mph and something nicer(elixers, hopes, Shimano ICE tech, elect) take 10 feet. You are travel faster for longer period of time and braking in shorter period of time. Would that not be faster? I mean how could it not be faster.
not to mention high end Hydro are lighter which will effectively make you climb faster......

Snakes that hang out in the middle of the trail get run over.
I do not think they like it.You are the mission Bob.
