I used to off-road, but it was always on the crappy $75 bikes from Target that would break down in a month.

Now, I do BMX. Redline XX, 2004 30th Anniversary Edition. I used to ride a cheap-o used Haro my friend sold me for $25, but you get what you pay for...

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

Nice bike!

I used to have a Scott bike, but it rusted up after being ridden to school through the winter... (The salt they put on the road & the snow really mess up the mechanics).

I have never heard of that brand before. I have a Cannodale Jekyll 500, I think its an 04.

I like the idea of a 'hybrid/road' bike. The only ones I have seen like that have been the Gary Fishers, but they are kind of pricey.

I love riding, it makes you feel like a kid again. good way to get away from everything.

mynameis, does your jekyll have the lefty fork? that thing always weirded me out.
actually the hybrid/road bike is my old skool hardtail with some skinnies for the road

My current one doesn't, but I rode one for awhile that did, I liked them.

this is my ride, picked it up about 2 months ago and is super fun to ride.


has a sora front deraileur which kinda bites a bit but i might upgrade that, tiagra rear deraileur which shifts like a dream. it has taken me a long time to get it adjusted correctly for me though but once it is finally there i will be riding all of the time to and from work and for exercise and for fun.

other day i got the front of my seat lifted up a few milimeters, seat moved forward a milimeter and the handlebars tilted up a little bit. turned out i was completely stretched out on the bike (a really bad thing) and it was physically hurting my hands to the point that i had to walk home 3 miles one day.

the shifters on these bikes are amazing because the brake lever also acts as your shifter, so if you are braking and you need to shift you just pull back to stop and move to the inside in order to shift. takes some practice because normally you arent pedaling when you are stoping but it makes life easier because you dont have those hard starts.

once my LBS(local bike shop) finds a pair of good non-leather clipless shoes and pedals i am upgrading from the crappy toe clips and never looking back. i do look forward to falling on my side a few times as i can not remove my feet from the pedals as i am at a complete stop.

once i move into a flat city i am going to look into a fixie, that is going to be a boatload of fun

enjoy the bike,
sorry for the long post

very nice bike! I use a gary fisher 2004 tarpon...it's supposed to be a mountain bike, but where I live (san francisco) it's very useful because of the hills and the park trails. and the parks with hills
