Questionable bro clothing choices/colors aside, DH is all around pretty fucking awesome.

 

The consequences of a mistake appear to be pretty fatal all over that vid, though.

@Rubbish: I was just thinking the same thing. It's funny how in highschool I resented dirt bikes and DH because of the bro mystique and now they're two things I really wish I had the cash for.... so who's the douche now?

 

@Choc, what, did you try riding up old tunnel road?

 

@Me, I just switched the CX to 23mm tires. Just looks goofy. Time to get in real miles.

Clapped out saddle and scratched up seatpost jacked off my bike locked up at a fucking transit center today... special place goes to the bike (and component) thieves everywhere. I wouldn't hesitate to beat skulls with u-locks at this point.

Lame. Was it a QR clamp? Or did it seem like some kids just yanked it out. I normally take my seat and seatpost with me if im locking my bike up where i cant see it, but thats very rarely

Here's how my brain works:

1. Im totally fucking sure of myself that I know every road in the bay area

2. I look at that bit of road and think, "hey that has to be grizzly peak right before Tunnel rd."

3. I look at that background and instead of thinking "oh that's not grizzly peak" I think "Oh he must've created that view in post because if I cant name it it must not exist."

4. I post "shopped" on an internet forum to validate myself, and pretend i ride as much as choc and rubbish.

Nah, no QR, just regular old allen bolts.

 

Needless to say ball bearings are being glued/waxed into all my spare allen bolts on that bike now. Luckily the day was saved by a friend with a cheap setup to kick back after my shit got ganked. I've seen the commuter move where people remove their own post but honestly I'm OCD as shit about my saddle height being perfecto and would drive myself crazy remeasuring it every time.

you could glue a washer/wire in place at the line.

 

seems like an easier/less pain in the ass route than bb's in the key holes.

I've been doing this for a while. Used shoe goo because I didn't have anything else around. Was kicking myself for not thinking about it more when i went to take the saddle off - seemed like it was going to be impossible, there was no was I wag going to be able to pry that bearing out of there. Dripping some goo gone onto the bolt and letting it sit for 10 minutes or so softened up the shoe goo enough to pry the ball out with a knife. I would say this is a pretty good theft deterrent, since I don't think a thief is going to able to turn your bike on its side and hang out while the goo gone or whatever solvent does its work. Also, the shoe goo comes out clean in one rubbery piece, leaving nothing in the bolt hole.

wear your helmets fellas.

pretty sure i'd, at least, be a veggie right now if it wasn't for that helmet.

 

on that note - it's cold and black ice can suck a dick.

somehow my bike is in one piece, but my person is perrrdyy fucked right now.

rubber side down my friends.
