Fargo ?

Thought I would put a feeler out. Anybody looking for a lightly used first gen Fargo size medium ? With another joining the herd soon thinking of thinning what doesn't get ridden much. would give first cousin price to an adv'er.


sorry if this is in bad taste not being the flea market and all .....

Niiiiiiice.

My vittoria rubino pro slicks have been very good to me on the Baltimore cityscape, which can be pretty tough on tires. to put it mildly.

I've flatted my 28c Gatorskins. Hit a rock just wrong on a gravel ride and voila! instant pinch. S'why I went to the Tufo tubulars for the gravel rides.

Gatorskins aren't what you'd call a nice-riding tire, but they ARE durable.

Darn tootin' they are. After 2,000 miles of uninterrupted inflation, I flatted one of my Gatorskins for the first time last night, courtesy of a 1" roofing nail. Since they're just about worn out anyways, I had the LBS order me up a pair of Clement Strada LGG in 25mm.

25c Rubino Pro's. I put a lot of seat time in, with very shitty roads... I can't recomend these tires enough. Especially the 25's if you have rough pavement.

Sick S-Works...

Anyone interested in a non-decaled Full Tilt Boogie/Hot Buns carbon crosser?

I need a backup race frame for next cross season and like the way my FTB rides, so I went and found the original manufacturer. Order 1 its ~$500. Order 3 the price goes down. Order 5 and the price goes down again.

We can get em custom painted at the factory if y'all want. (but the price goes up slightly)

This particular model is non-disc.

Hey all,
I know this has been talked about, but I can't search three letters.

I am looking for a simple GPS for my bike. I primarily just want to track for later documenting.... Small is good.
I was thinking a Garmin edge 200

I don't have a smart phone.

If all you want to do is track mileage and stuff, look for a forerunner series watch. More useful overall than a cycling computer.

If you want to add heart rate at a later date, stick with something in the Edge 500 series or the Bryton family The Edge 200 isn't compatible with anything. It is what it is: basic GPS-enabled cycling computer.

If you go surf slowtwitch, there was at least one Edge 500 for sale for lots off.

HTH

I just got back from a 3.5hr loop. Rode over to the Wed winter loop, did that, then rode home. First hour = tarmac. Second hour and a half = dirt. Last bit = tarmac and a headwind.

Tried to attack the hills. Got my HR to the same place as I did last Mon on Busthead Rd but the legs weren't screaming nearly as loudly. I could crest the hill and less than 30sec later, my HR's back down to zone 1. Fitness is getting back to where it used to be. Yay for fitness!

Hope y'all's rides went as well.

Well, the 3 State 3 Mountain century was an adventure today. Im glad the wife goaded me into buying a Cannondale rain jacket last night during packet pickup, as it pissed down buckets and never exceeded 50 degrees today. Many times during the course of the ride I would say out loud "rule #5" just to push through. I witnessed several riders hobbling into the quitter bus at two of the sag stops. Those who of us who didn't give up (or take the shorter mileage options) decided to press on regardless despite conditions that proved to be deadly. At least one rider paid the ultimate price.

I got a Garmin 200 last year..love it. I does everything I need it to do and nothing else. Connect to the Garmin community website to upload and track...or Strava, whichever your preference.

As Gummiee has said, the Forerunner might be more practical, but I know couple of people who found they lost connections when riding. Might have been earlier models, who knows.

For $150 bucks or less, it's had to beat and it really changed my training.

As always...YMMV

All riders are or will be ok.
