    Oh, my. Crap on a cracker. The good stuff. I see other stuff around from some far away island but I’ve never tried it. I’m afraid if I try anything other than Record (Super, Nouvo, etc.) I’d fall off the bicycle.

    if it's high end, I'm down with it. One thing for sure, Dura Ace of the same vintage is definitely not as sexy. That's a fact, I looked it up

    So don't ever clamp a frame like that. The tubes are all pretty thin and those jaws are ruthless for crushing stuff.

    Put in the seatpost and and clamp to that. It's probably 3X as thick as any frame tube and if you crushed it a lot less expensive to replace.

    You are very right. Totally right. But there is no post yet. Thank you, brother.

    up til mid July I wasn't sure if I'd be able to ride again. Every day is a new day. Unless it's groundhog day, in which case all bets are off

    it's nice to see an investment in the local mtb/multi use park. Glad I got to see this before they coptered it all out

    feels great to be riding again! Mostly great, pushed a little too hard today I think. I'll find out tomorrow

    Just a glimpse of an action shot from today.
    2000ish feet of vertical, so this bit of downhill flow was a relief.

    I'm a bit of a pack rat. Really glad I kept this piece of Synchros titanium seatpost around, never thought I'd use it for this

    3 weeks since my knee surgery and I'm getting tired of spinning on my back porch and going nowhere. I want to get out and ride.
