  1. 6 miles of trail riding in a bit heavier rain,...

    6 miles of trail riding in a bit heavier rain, this morning, but this time on my Pugsley, 2nd edition fat bike. The heavier rain moved in, just a bit later, so my only ride of the day. Good workout,...

    Sheila, since I'm constantly mixing and matching stems and handlebars, I keep a variety of stem spacers on hand. I do prefer a taller handlebar height setup with more spacers under the stem,...

    Glad everyone survived the rains and flooding.

    Speaking of rain, rode in the rain, yesterday and it was by choice. Didn't get caught out in the rain; it was raining when I started riding. Very...

    You've been missed, N.Y. Nice to have you back.

    I really can't imagine all that rain and flooding. Have never experienced anything like it. My heart goes out to anyone who has to deal with this...

    Had company over the weekend and will be getting more, tomorrow, so just getting in what I can for rides. Our weekend guest was an old friend of my hubby's and it was great having her for a visit....

    Best of luck, Sarah. Believe me, I know what bike withdrawal is like. Not fun. Keep us posted and keep joining in. Love having you with us.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. Nice to have you with us.

    Yes, if you have to rock your hips/legs side to side, your saddle height is definitely too high. Could be a cause of your problem, but, for...

    Sheila, got a Salsa Gide Trail stem in 50mm, not 55 as I posted, above. Got it from Jensen where I get a lot of parts.

    Crankin, glad you're reconnecting with an old friend. That's always...
  9. Got a new (and long overdue) shorter stem for the...

    Got a new (and long overdue) shorter stem for the Krampus. It's been wearing the too long 70mm factory stem since I got it. Should have changed it to a shorter stem, long ago, but never got around to...
  10. Emily, those are great numbers! Congrats. Pretty...

    Emily, those are great numbers! Congrats. Pretty hard for me to gauge my average speed with everyone else's because almost all our roads are gently rolling with some pretty steep hills thrown in....

    Keep us updated, Emily and anyone else affected by the storm.

    Back home, our lawn rake is getting a good workout on our trails, now that the leaves have started to fall. My main problem with the...
  12. Hoping for the best for all those folks in the...

    Hoping for the best for all those folks in the Carolinas. Not looking good, though.

    Beautiful ride for me, today. Sunshine and 80 degrees with a bit of wind, but not too much. Just a great day to...
  13. We're getting a last delicious taste of summer...

    We're getting a last delicious taste of summer for the rest of the week with temps right at 80 for a high and lots of sunshine. I'm enjoying it while I can. time to also catch up on some yard work...
  14. Emily, I noticed that about the Florida weather,...

    Emily, I noticed that about the Florida weather, too. Was very nice in the morning, with thunderstorms every afternoon. Made for a nice, predictable pattern for bicycling or other outdoor activities....
  15. My prayers for all who might be in the path of...

    My prayers for all who might be in the path of this next storm. Hurricanes wouldn't stop me from living in an area any more than blizzards or tornadoes would stop me from living where I've lived all...
  16. I'm back home, safe and sound and oh, so,...

    I'm back home, safe and sound and oh, so, content. As for acclimating, highs in the 60s for our late afternoon bike ride and, no, no problem adapting at all and, in fact, I was amazed at just how...
  17. No pressure from me on switching to flat pedals....

    No pressure from me on switching to flat pedals. As always, use what works for you and the way you like to ride. I fully respect everyone's choice to do things their own way.

    Last ride, today, of...
  18. I've never had good performance with 50/50 style...

    I've never had good performance with 50/50 style pedals. Really a pain in the butt. You always end up wasting time trying to get the correct side up when you want it and the clip in side tends to be...
  19. Yeah, I'm definitely a four seasons type of gal,...

    Yeah, I'm definitely a four seasons type of gal, but, as always, I can adapt when need be, Florida, included. Today was my best day, yet, on my Florida visit. Made it a point to get out, earlier, and...
  20. I'm with you, Emily, on not pushing others to do...

    I'm with you, Emily, on not pushing others to do the smart thing and wear a helmet, though when it's with people I know, I do stop and try to convince them. Have even offered to give a helmet, free...
  21. Thanks, Emily. I managed 12 miles, today, in the...

    Thanks, Emily. I managed 12 miles, today, in the 87 degree heat and crazy humidity, but was extra careful to drink as much water as I could stand. I think that helped. I was goings nuts, though to...
  22. Well, here I am in the Clearwater Beach area in...

    Well, here I am in the Clearwater Beach area in Florida, which is actually a narrow key island. The tropical storm missed us, but the weather is the usual rain after 2pm every day. I rented the usual...
  23. Sheila, I'm one of those retro folks (now called...

    Sheila, I'm one of those retro folks (now called retro-grouches), because I hated to see 26ers die a slow death at the hands of the industry. The 27.5 label is misleading, after all, because a 27.5...
  24. September rides, bringing in the fall.

    Guess it's my turn to start the monthly ride thing, so here goes.

    Took time from my packing to do a little riding, today. Did 14 miles of pavement on the Log Lady - again, between showers in very...

    Good tip, Sheila. Might have to try it. The forecast is for storms all week, down there, but, as always, I'll get out and ride, one way or another.

    No, those are a Salsa Bend 2 with 23 degree...
