you always need a second bike, especially if you really get into riding
/what do you ride when your bike is in the shop or sometimes you just want to change it up; it also serves as a buddy bike for when a friend wants to hit the trails
hope your week is wrapping up nicely,my man
got any plans for this weekend?
we are going to a friends house on friday night and then plan on chilling the rest of the time
Good afternoon pop_rocks.
Your not kidding the bikes can be pricey. I'm like you and don't spend much on cars, I think people making 6 and 7 hundred dollar car payments a month are crazy. Just needs to get me a to b.
I'm looking forward to having multiple bikes. I got the roscoe 8 and just need the rain to stop so I can get a first ride on it. The plan is to get the fuel 90 going soon but I need a new rear shock and to get the shifting adjusted. That bike came with an early fox float shock that didn't even have a lockout on it, lots of better options these days. And the fork on the fuel is shitty too, I'm sure I'll want to upgrade that because I'll get use to the Judi on the roscoe and want similar on the fuel.
You bring up a great point about having a bike for a friend to ride and to switch it up a bit.i hope that I don't have to worry about my bike being in the shop, as a professional mechanic I work on stuff that is a lot more complicated than a bicycle every day.
Do you use clip in pedals or flat?
The week flew by again and looks like the cold rain/snow mix is back for the weekend around here so no outdoor activities for me. Have fun tonight and I hope your weekend kicks ass...Fiddy.
