You have a sickness, but we enjoy seeing your sickness on display in this (and the bicycle) thread.

Just brought this home, :-) Basically an upgrade from my Rockhopper 26" hardtail. Better frame, suspension and running gear.
Specialized Carve Expert, 29er, hardtail (duh), 2x10
Happy to say it looks much better in person, the picture doesn't show the contrast between the shades of black very well...

I got back on the MTB this weekend after 7wks of no riding due to shoulder surgery.

I forgot how much fun my Reign is.

Saw a tandem pulling a trail-a-bike and a burly trailer down a bike trail once. Talk about a freight train!

[QUOTE=Ricardo Kuhn;Someday when the get really reliable I hope to have some on my tandem and also my single bikes..[/QUOTE]

How reliable are they? I have a friend who commutes year round 16 miles a day on a belt and hers lasted three years, let alone the round about ways home I'd join her on every week and all the other miles she'd rack up for everything else. That's well over 12,500 miles for a belt and set of rings. Now that's not mtn biking, but it sounds good to me.

I had some pins out of my shoulder from a highside on my moto in 2006 and had my bicep tendon cut and moved.

I was out again this morning dodging Kangaroos.

Nice work, I have a few screws from rotator cuff surgery due to a DH highside, the shredded biceps tendon was repaired then too. Was back on the road bike as soon as I could reach the hoods in 4 weeks
