The 3rd digit

My first day with my new baby and I put the first 100 on her! Just about a year ago I came to this site looking for info and advice. Some thousands of miles later and many many hours on the trail, I picked up a new bike (the job helped!). I’m keeping my starter and I am just going to mod it and make it a badass trail bike. Thanks for y’alls advice on gaining skills and gear info!November 6, 2009 at 3:03 am #23180eonParticipant
Ooohh I am extremely jealous. That’s a bike that is on my shortlist. Don’t know if I would do it justice or not. Would love to hear how you progress with it and the adventures you have.November 6, 2009 at 12:55 pm #23188
Rubber. Down. Got it!November 6, 2009 at 12:58 pm #23189
It was on my extremely shortlist, when I first saw it I fell in love with it. I’m sure you would do it justice, as long as you got long legs lol! I think you can get a short seat with it though, I don’t know if that is an issue for you. I’ll keep you up on the trouble I get into for sure!November 6, 2009 at 2:00 pm #23190AParticipant
Practice seating on one thigh before you come to a stop.. you don’t need to flat-foot the bike on both side when you’re stopped.November 6, 2009 at 3:32 pm #23192eonParticipant
I’m 5’9″ with a 32″ inseam, I think I could manage the height but I would not like to be any smaller. I was thinking with a bike like that I would have to go on long trips with some offroading thrown in. Most of my riding is day trips and I live in the middle of a city. It’s not the ideal urban bikeNovember 14, 2009 at 8:44 pm #23320owlieParticipant
Congrats on the new bike. It looks like a blast!
