Viscious Cycle

Postby BonsoWonderDog » Sat Apr 12, 2014 7:16 am

I am in the market for a new bike. Do any of you ride?

At the moment I'm thinking road carbon frame with flat bars.

I ride a Mongoose Crossway hybrid, mainly as a commuter bike/run around.

Am not otherwise nuts about bikes in terms of GAS/specification type thing, they're just handy to get around.

I have a single cylinder 650. I just took it out tonight for the first ride of the year.

Do you ride for fun or just to get around?

I have a pretty good mountain bike that I don't ride as much as I'd like, a new mower, and no kayak.

I ride a fat boy, hard pan, double knuckle '81 soft side deelux.


Nah, but I've got a mountain bike from target. It's a nice upper level schawing, but it was put together at target. My eternal goal is to get our bikes to a proper bike shop so they can be tuned up and so I can learn a thing or two about tire maintenance. I seem to have trouble taking care of them and blow them out all the time. We don't ride that often and I know they loose air naturally.. other than that :idk: boom.. flat. bump bump bump :mad: I hate walking this *@!!*$ thing home..

I haven't had a bicycle in forever. My last one was a mountain bike and it was stolen. I most enjoyed my fixed gear bike that I had when I was in high school but apparently that now is considered a "hipster" type bike and to be avoided :idk:

Thank you.

See, I've tried most of the main boat types, and it's really not worth the trouble to own one in Indiana. I could only use my ski boat about four months out of the year, and then only after an hour drive to some lake. I had a fishing boat/outboard motor, but fishing sux here, especially after fishing in the ocean. I've stayed on houseboats & cab cruisers, but for the above reasons, also meh.

But a kayak is dirt cheap compared to the others, needn't be fueled, registered or taxed, there are numerous streams & rivers nearby, and as to seasons, who cares if the water's a bit chilly, since if one is kayaking properly one doesn't personally encounter the water unless one wishes.

But yeah, bikes...

I haven't been canoeing since I was a kid.

The best bit is when so much water ends up in the canoe that you can pee yourself without anyone realising.

See, that's a good reason I prefer the seclusive accommodations of the kayak: no suspiciously warm bilge water.

my last bike was a nice mountain bike I bought off my brother

the deal was *too good to be true* I never asked about its origins :grin:

anyways, that same brother got the back tire hit my a car, he was fine just a lil shaken he didn't eat shit or wipe out

anyways I took it to the shop for repairs and they wanted 2 grand !

so after that I just left it on my front lawn unlocked, it took thiefs like 6 months to steal it either because of the neighbourhood or because they noticed how mangled it was

now I just ride bikes at the gym lol
