    “We are looking for another issue to litigate.” Well isn’t that neat.
    That is great for the Palisades zone, such great exploring around there!

    I know nobody cares, but 5th street bike park in Driggs is close. Big line should be riding well in the mornings when it’s frozen, pretty sloppy after about 10am. Should have the B line all clear of snow and dry to ride by the middle of next week.

    I want to care too.

    I kinda left biking back in the late 90's and haven't much looked back. Too many diggers, fucked up wrists, shoulders, knees, ankles...Had an 89 Bridgestone MB-3 comp back then, Bikes have changed immensely.
    Now I need to get back in the saddle as I don't think my knee is ever gonna be back to normal if I don't start riding again.
    I have 4 bikes, crazy, right?
    1 DBR carbon full suspension DH'er. (Steve Romeo sold it to me...)
    1 geared Specialized town cruiser
    1 Rocky mtn. XC
    1 Rocky mtn. DH
    I'd sell/trade all 4 for just one that suits my needs. Likely gonna be hitting you mags up for some hep this summer.

    I bet @rideit can help you with your quiver. I have a Cycleops trainer that might be good to put the XC bike on for now. Holler if you want to borrow it. I had knee replacement last April and wouldn't be skiing without bikes. This rehab stuff is the real deal- takes patience and persistence, especially as we aren't getting any younger.

    DJ, i could help you spread the word on selling your quiver, shouldnt be too hard in this climate. I would start with fb and craigslist. The hard part is going to be finding you a new bike, its insane out there right now. What size/how tall are you?

    And if you need a consultation of what your bikes might need to make them saleable, just shout, happy to come over and take a gander.

    Fuck. Yes. A classic whip, as the kids say.

    I had a similar vintage MB-2 frame that I was building up as a project bike a bunch of years ago, trying to "restore" it by finding era-appropriate parts for it. I don't know that I ever got it completed before trading it away for my first slalom bike. Boy, that was dumb.

    Anycrap, I'll be up in y'alls neck of the hills at some point this summer so I'll check in here to see who (besides rideit of course) wants to get down. And if any of y'all make it down towards Colorado, I'm a decent tour guide and ride partner. Not that he would, but rideit could corroborate were he so inclined.
    The older I get, the faster I was.






    Punch it, Chewie.

    Who?
    I don’t even know that Full Trucker dood.
    Or his dogs.
    But I imagine he knows a thing or two about this and that.

    Right on!

    I don't have stars in my eyes for a shiny new ride, Just need to get functional. And comfortable. Once I am fitted well enough, I'm pretty good at the going part.
    No big cycling goals other than a fun way to exercise my leg back into shape and balance my body. And lose some weight. And...
    I did love that Bridgestone, no suspension. Commuted from the Aspens to Moosely seconds summer of 97 daily via the M-W road. Used to get up and down shadow mtn. decently, not fast.
    An assessment by rideit would be greatly appreciated. Line up my ducks for me. I'll PM ya for a get together soon. Thanks all.
