I'm not even that good at wheelies myself, so maybe Saul can lead a class for all of us...

You either have the wheelie gene, or you don't. I can sort of fake it for a little while, but the guys who can ride no handed wheelies up and down the block were born with it.

Yup haha, I can hold it together long enough to fool someone who doesn't know but I have friends who can ride one wheel across town while texting with one foot unclipped.

OK well if you do go with the full-on roadie lycra then it is an unwritten rule that you shave your legs.

Pretty much how I feel right now. Except I'd rather be on my 450 then a 990

Hopefully I can learn some better dirtbike single track skills. 20 years of mt biking helps me pick lines but it doesn't help me control the throttle or feel that damn rear foot brake!

Got caught in it on the Cowdrey Draw trail - the newish connector between Superior and Community Ditch.

Figure it's worth a shot to post in this thread. I'm looking to buy a road or cyclocross bike for a 3 day charity ride I'm doing this summer (courage classic). Probably need a size 58cm. Let me know if you have a bike you'd like to sell.

Is there a way to prevent your balls from being squashed between your leg and the side of the seat?

This usually happens when im off the bike, then hop up, stand up and paddle the first few feet, then sit down to keep going, it happens then, and i have to adjust.

Annoying.
So you identify with Ninja and his biking problem?

6:30 this morning. 1.5 hours to get up the mountain and back before work. Climbed some stuff I'd never cleared before... 29ers are like cheating!
