    Back yard riding

    Lol. I won’t have a wife to complain about it, so as long as the neighbors are happy, i am good.

    $8-10 is about right. I don’t buy lunch every day, but at least once a week.

    Back yard riding

    How much space do you need to have a little fun, and how much do your neighbors notice the noise? i am about to close on a .7 acre lot with a decent sized wooded area in the back. I know it’s not a lot, but i think an xr80 or a cheap 110 pit bike would probably be fun, if it’s quiet enough. Do not want to annoy the neighbors. Stock exhaust for sure. Will double as MTB good off space.

    Fleet sell off - Ducati, Honda and Yamaha

    I think you’re right. When Honda introduced the 600RR, the F4i became more street-oriented. Still a great bike.

    Bicycle racing season

    saw results this morning. You’re officially fast, @jhawk Nice race. The course beat me. A little disappointed in my fitness. Gotta get back on the bike today, after i clean it up.

    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    The through-axle on my fat bike is seized to the threaded grommet, and the grommet is rotating in the fork “dropout.” i haven’t drilled it to hold the grommet in place so i can remove the axle yet, but i did order a Chinese carbon fork yesterday. I will drill and hack the current fork AFTER the new one arrives. Still riding the bike as is until then. I just wanted to swap my tires!

    What i did in guns.

    If you want to carry in 45 ACP, that’s the way to do it.

    Bicycle racing season

    I took 9th in a poorly attended fat tire race in February, but “regular” racing is coming soon! I almost registered for the 3/23 mtb race in Chillacothe, but i’ll Be out of town. I am doing gravel races until the MTB trails solidify. 5/4 is the black fork gravel grinder. It’s really well organized, and if you don’t mind climbing, it’s a hell of a way to gauge early-season fitness. Haven’t looked much at MTB events yet, but will plan on racing at Vulture’s Knob, and maybe elsewhere around Ohio. I’d also like to buy a season license for CX this year. Anyone besides @jhawk going to come beat me?

    Roadapple Roubaix 2018 (3/3/18)

    Well i guess i know myself better than i thought. I’m pretty beat, and finished in 2:58. Hard to be disappointed knowing that it’s 18 minutes faster than last year, and my first real ride on my CX/gravel bike. Fun time.

    Road it 41.6(?) miles. And got it dirty.

    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    Got a professional fitting on the CX bike last Friday. Ordered a spare 700c tube. Road Apple Roubaix Saturday. Been mostly working on myself until then. Need to test ride the CX bike with the new cassette, but it’s shifting well on the stand.

    (Related: my $1200ish in bike purchases is earning my wife a much nicer spa package for Valentine’s Day)

    What did you do to your bicycle today?

    Bought a CX bike. Swapping it from 11-32 cassette to 11-42, so it climbs more easily on gravel rides. professional bike fitting scheduled for 2/15 😎
