    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    Got the bike finished and took it out for the first time tonight at Ray's. Overall it rode great. Wish the frame was about 1" longer to keep my knees away from the stem. But not that bad. Probably heading back out to Ray's again next Thursday.

    Sigh.......USPS packages supposed to be delivered yesterday turned into "Your package will arrive later than expected, but is still on its way. It is currently in transit to the next facility." Last known location for both was a few days ago in FL. Really wanted to get this thing buttoned up to go ride Thursday.

    Bought a Haro Steel Reserve 1.2. Added front brake. New grips, pedals and seat arrive today. Most likely hitting up Ray's on Thursday.

    Hardtail vs Full Suspension

    I know it all comes down to personal preference. But i'm torn between which direction to go. I was pretty much set on a Roscoe 8 but found a 2016 Trek Fuel EX 8 for $1,000. Looks pretty clean. Would probably change up to a 1X setup but could easily with the money saved. Thoughts?

    Also found this one. Prob a better one for me.

    Hardtail vs Full Suspension

    Yay or nay? I'd have to ride it. A medium may be too small, i'm right at the cutoff between sizes.

    Well.....he just sold it to someone else. Lame.

    Hardtail vs Full Suspension

    Just getting started into mtn biking. bought an old 26" to start and really like it. But that bike is really heavy and a tad too small. Last year i did mostly shorter rides, roughly an hour. Mostly at royalview which has lots of roots and some rocks. In which i rode out of the saddle for most of. I'd like to travel to more places this year.

    Back Protectors

    I currently wear the Pro L2 Evo. No complaints with it at all but i also haven't tested its protection properties yet. Fits good under my leathers and stays mostly in place. I have to push it down while putting the suit on but i think that is the same with most back protectors. Before that i had the A* track vest. I liked it better in terms of fit and staying in place but did not fit under my new leathers (went from 2-piece to 1-piece). It was also much warmer compared to just the back protector even in 20 minute sessions.

    Motorcycle Survey from Ohio State

    My cousin just sent out a survey about swimwear. The format is identical. It's a marketing research class.

    Pretty sure noon the day before is the cutoff for early registration. So that would be Friday at noon for a Monday track day.

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    Exact ramp i use with my HF trailer. It's great build quality and i ride the bike right up it since it's wide enough to put your feet down. Once in the trailer i put the TRS down and slide right into place.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Started the bike for the first time in a while. Let it idle while i mowed the grass. Stupid shoulder. I get my bone stimulater tomorrow though. Hopefully it works as good as the Dr says.

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    I towed to the track for many years in a Scion xB (the bigger second version). It was never tow rated in the US but had a 1,600lb rating in Austrailia. I figured it was good enough. No issues at all with the bike and gear. I probably only had about 80-100lb of tongue weight. I would pick it up and pull the trailer to the car in the mornings. I tried 800lbs of topsoil once and it did not like that. Glad I only had to go about 10 miles. It was constant tug/pull the whole way, could never get it settled down.
