Hey, how many of you guys service your own bikes? Just got an estimate on my 24,000 mile service...

Do tell. What does that include ( I suppose I could look it up, but...)?

#475 - bought new in dec 05'

Here's a pic on a fun day's trip from Bozeman, MT to Buffalo, WY - here sitting up on top of Bear Tooth Pass. The saddle is a used item from this site - Rick's out of Seattle; it's dual heated and is much like sitting on a saddle with no pressure on... let's just say I didn't like the stocker on long trips. Only 10k mi to date, but zero as a daily rider.

Showing up late to the T-shirt party; I'd be interested if you still have a 2x for sale.

Well, I'm having trouble uploading (won't let me); will try again...

logged out and back on...

Still won't let me upload a jpeg of the appropriate size (won't even let me get started, says I've already uploaded my 1 attachment). What's my deficit? Thanks.

Wellcome Paddy;
You probably just need to use one of those fancy picture hosting sites like Smugmug. I think they may be close to making it a requirement. Worth it though.
From Wenatchee, maybe you can make it down to Astoria the last weekend in June. We'll be doing a little camping and a little back woods riding.

Registry

The registry has been updated. We currently have good information on about 40 of the 171 US model bikes. I think that's pretty cool considering this is the only place we've talked about the registry. If you would like more information posted on your particular bike, please sent it to me via email to the address on the site, ericsyn@gmail.com. When I do the next update I can make a page with your personal information.

I was looking at the registry last night while I was updating it... I think I can make it better... stronger... faster...

But thanks for the kudos.

PS You'll be proud to know that your shirts were the first ones packed

I thought they came out great too, but I was waiting on confirmation before I said anything
