Breaking down my require a walk out to the truck, but in many cases, that can be avoided with a little know-how. Here are some tips for the do-it-yourselfer who wants to know, just a bit more.
It’s been six weeks, 10 rides (4 on my Cross and 6 on my MTB) just over 100 miles – and now a small but expensive problem has cropped up! Are the SIDI Carbon Dragon 3 MTB Shoes worth all the hype?
I got the nod form Singletracks.com for a photo of me from the 90s – this is form the 1997 NORBA Nationals Big Bear Lake, CA. I took 3rd at this race. Now I’m 51 and still just as hard on the trails as I was back then. But a wee bit slower, ha! I was sponsored by GT Bicycles, Bullet USA and Qranc USA to name a few. The ZZYZX Fork was one of the first tripple-clamp forks on the market and made by Dan Hanebrink – this was an amazing time to be Downhill Racing!
A while back I saw a really sweet Frame Bag designed with the Colorado Flag – and two thoughts came to mind. a) Would that fit on my bike (I ride a small frame)? b) What’s all that Velcro going to do to the finish of my carbon frame? After some digging I was able to find a smaller version of the frame bag called a 1/2 bag, but the whole idea of sand and crushed granite (Colorado’s dirt) didn’t sit well with me.
