  1. Today
  2. Was able to hop on a Scott Genius 29er this morning for a quick 5 mile loop. Fun bike. I just sold the exact same bike a few months back in the 27.5 wheel size so it was nice to ride the same bike in the bigger wheelsize. They charge an arm and a leg for their bikes, but they sure are spec’d nicely.
  3. I have several options set up. For just days when I drive to the trails and don't plan on leaving my truck with my bike in it. I just double duty the doggy blanket as a tailgate protection. Then on days I want something a little more secure and want to haul my kayak at the same time, I made this mount assembly for the bed cover. I can also just lock it under the bed cover (again using the doggy blanket). Plus there's always inside the cab, but some disassembly/assembly is required. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    That's pretty damn nice actually.
  7. My ass is the only thing holding me back right now. Hope we get some more of this in December! Gonna try going around the block a few times though and see how that feels.
  8. That T@G camper is the shite! Nice setup😎
  9. Just saw this on someone's FB feed... Just a hoggish (in a good way) confidence inspiring deal-with-anything look...
  10. I'm partial to the Sunday morning Pedaler rides that start from the Hyde Park shop. These are BA sanctioned rides and not sponsored by The Pedaler. https://rides.bikeaustin.org/Our-Rides/

    Picked up this f/f set off the ebay and built it up with some goodies from the parts library. It's more of a go anywhere/hipster/urban bike.
  12. Rise and shine ladies. Leave your long sleeves at home, it is going to be a warm (and humid) one. See you all there.
  13. I do it real simple and just throw the bike in the bed with a blanket which has worked for years with me.
  14. As long as you don’t powder coat it you shouldn’t have a problem
  15. having to take the front wheel off when you have a truck seems to defeat the purpose of having a truck to haul bikes. I would use the blanket over tailgate method, a hitch rack, or my preferred method which is a bed extender with foam over the tubing. I like this method because I like the bed extender and I dont need to carry anything extra like a tailgate pad.
  16. Well, here's my checklist: No rides in more than a week until today. Coming off 1.5 weeks with a cold Not much dirt riding all through August I'm not sure I've completed a lap around Thumper this year...maybe one. I've not done City Park in this direction since the last time it was in this direction. Tires aired Stan's topped up chain lubricated lights charged Infinit mixed Osprey pack packed up with tools, spares, and snacks Let's go!!
  17. To be fair, I do this with fully built and capable bikes.
  18. New frame arrived. Exciting times! I’m hoping I don’t discover that the rear triangle is made of chocolate, and I don’t have to deal with customer service. The build will take a while, so for now I’ll have to make do with a mixture of staring at it adoringly, and running round the garden with it like a witch’s broom, while making motorcycle noises.

  21. That's not going to go well for you. I still have a few functioning toes I can make a good deal on though?
