  • Side Project - Kid's Bike

    So I dug out my old bike frame from when I was a kid and built it up with my 7 year old just like my grandfather and I did when I was 7 and he found this frame in a junk yard. I doubt I was much more "help" to my grandfather than my son was to me, however he had fun putting on gloves and trying to use a hammer for each and every task. Rather than a rattle can job like we did over 30 years ago, I went ahead and had it blasted and powder coated to hopefully help it last for the next generation. I also replaced a lot of parts which probably had my grandfather rolling over in his grave since the severely rusted ones still worked or could have been salvaged. I did salvage some items, but overall it came out much nicer than it ever was when I had it. I believe the frame is 70's era huffy and was intended as a banana seat bike, however I never realized that until I was searching for a replacement seat post for this build. I kept it a standard seat since that is how I always rode it so had to do some modifications to the seat post to make it work.

    Came out pretty cool and my son loves riding it so far. I think it weighs about 300lbs!

  • So Rapp is being sued by Dimond?

    Welcome at @Nate_Mach some people here are mean and some are unfunny, but we haven't had anybody doing both simultaneously since Ben retired.

    Case in point, everyone's (or just my) favorite triathlete.



    If you don't have 2 minutes to watch the entire thing, Currie dropped his chain at Challenge Wanaka. Gomez pulled up to give him a push to try to ride it back on. When it didn't work, Gomez held up down the road for him to pull over, get his chain back on and catch up. Gomez went on to beat Currie by about 17 seconds.

    Fearless leader? I didn't say @AaronWebstey.

  • 2019 Team - Rooster Endurance

    I'll consider sponsoring the team if RASH is placed near the pubic bone on each kit.

  • Let's See Your Critters

    @wchevron My kids have been bothering me for a dog so I said if they stayed in their own beds for 100 nights in a row I would think about it. I forgot I said that until my son just walked in and said "Dad - 11 nights!". He's tracking. He's going to be so sad on day 100 when I remind him I only promised to think about it.
