Sick Specialized!^^

When's the bike outing, guys?

I have been out riding a little BMX recently also. A little humbling but I am determined to get good again. I guess taking years from even touching the bike will do that haha.

Ya, like before we were talking the differences between the 26 and 29 mtn bikes. Well, riding the 20 race bikes blows any of those out of the water when it comes to twitchyness. It is it's own feel, when riding. All these years of strictly dirt bike racing and now mountain bikes has made the bmx bike a rough transition but I grew up riding them and am making a point to have fun and get some sort of flow/skill back haha.

I would be all about that wooden flow track though^^^ Looks amazing!

radojim, that is right. Good call. Funny you mention that because when I was at the BMX track the other night, I was talking to a kid who works there on race nights (and also races) and he was telling me to go down and run that pump track on my bmx for additional practice. But ya, I would really like to go check that place out, both on my mtn bike and/or my bmx. We should do it.

To the mill and rays. Both are awesome. Rays is better IMO. Only because he's been around forever. The mill is newer. Also new Belgian beer is awesome. That is all.

Dug my muddy beast out of its hiding hole in the garage. She needs a wash, fork rebuild, and perhaps finally getting my single speed on. Haha. Regardless she'll be ready for our SRC bike meat!
