Tiffin and I were somewhere between Mudlick Road and Turkey Run Road in Buckhannon, WV. These are some rutted out abandoned country roads that are primarily used by ATV’s now. I put some 29 x 1.8’s (46mm) tires on my cross bike, and decided to see how well it did. Everything was fine, other than the frame and fork clearances for mud…

Ah, these are getting fun:
I always seem to be cleaning my mountain bike more than riding it. It’s the worst part, but its a necessity with our lovely WV environment ❤

Everyone seems to be making one of these “What X Thinks I Do” pictures, so here’s my take at it:
Whadd’ya think? If you make one, send it to me and I’ll post it here.
My Buddy Dave Burns had this to say about the subject of birthday rides:
Isn’t it mandatory to go for a ride on your birthday? Something like a mile for every year?
Well, I took his advice!
All in all, 28 miles, eventhough it’s my 26th. Good times. Do you guys go on Birthday Rides?
P.S. It’s November and still warm enough for road bikes!

The velomihottie’s brother came back from a Germany/Austria after a year of studying abroad. I guess he is back in the spirit of being American, because they took this photo.
This is how we roll in WV! Note, the legit revolver, not a plastic toy~

The Velohottie has been taking pics of cycling related things for me to ogle over. Unfortunately, my imagination has me imagining everyone riding $7000 Bianchis and Colnagos. My imagination has been known to wander, but Austria and German are not the cycling utopias I imagined… well at least her photos are not showing me what I fantasize about.
Take a look:
All of these bikes could have come from a big box department store, or crappy sporting goods center in America. Where are the flashy names, pretty bikes, or hell, even the sharing bikes I hear so much about? My expectations were high, but I still feel disappointed with the bikes, not the photos.
Well, this bike is pretty cool. It too has fenders and a rack, but it just looks a little cooler. The crank is a dead giveaway that it is a crap bike, but I still think I would commute on it if I had to…. 😦
On a drive to a friend’s today, I saw better bikes loaded into vehicles on Rt.33 (the highway) than I did in all of these photos so far. There was a Toyota with three MTB’s, one being a Top Fuel EX, and a Cannondale Scalpel. I can’t remember what the third was, but it was a Cannondale also.
She has also been taking random pics of other things that I thought would share.
Here is a MTB trail in Germany (Usingnen?) The guy with his back facing the camera has some kind of indistinguishable dual suspension MTB, with Schwalbe tires on Mavic rims, and a Rock Shox fork. The bike is pretty serious with hydraulic brakes, a remote seatpost, and computer/GPS mounted on the stem… Wish I knew what the frame was…
Here’s some other things that she took photos of, like bike lanes, trinkets, and signage~
