that reminds me, my friend was messing with his little brother, and stole his bike from work and put it on his roof rack. then when he drove home he smashed it into the garage hahaha! I warned him about that too. he was just like "WTF was that!" we both totally forgot he had that thing up there

I've had several friends (and friends of friends) do that. Funny but painful at the same time. F'd up the garages and the car roofs pretty good in each case. Brief moment of laughter followed by a good amount of pain, and a call to the insurance man.

Nothing like trying to explain how you just hammered a $4000 bike into the roof/gutter of your house and that yes, your bike is worth more than your car...

its funny cause Paul (the little brother) fell off his bike and caught his front foot in the spokes a few days before when I was riding with him. so today he comes by and says "man did I fall that hard?" and spins the wheel and its so messed up. haha (big brother never told him he rammed his bike into the garage)

This is my Mid 80's mountain toy. We are both showing battle scars after all these years. It is a Klein Pinnacle which was quite a good bike in it's day. I didnt realize how long I had been out of the sport when I decided to get back into it and update the bike. It has a 1 inch head stem configuration and when I went looking for a front suspension no one made a decent one any more . After much cajoling on my part I was able to get Marzocchi to make me one . I picked up a few CF bits , seat stem, bottle cage , bar ends and a handle bar is on order. My real goal is a set of CF wheels and I've seen a few that might do but havent decided as yet. As the guys at the locka bike show say" I could buy a new one " but what fun would that be ?

Sweet, old school Klein goodness.

That 1980's paint job makes my turn of the century Klein Pulse Pro painted in basic black look pretty boring...

I added a few upgrades recently . Can't stay away from the CF

I finally got the one inch riser CF bar and am quite happy with it . The funny part is that I had to upgrade my left side shifter setup due to the extra thickness of the bar. I went with a Shimano XTR piece and it is a nice improvment . Typical with your toys tho you buy one thing for X amount and have to buy something else for more to actually make it work

I sat on one of those " one legged " bikes at the shop and it sure was weird . I kept feeling that I was going to fall over to one side. The salesman said you get used to it in short order and I am sure he is rite but damn it was strange

Yeah, those Lefty's are definitely weird getting used to... But apparently work pretty well.

Tinker likes 'em

I just wish I could justify paying that much when I don't even have a job
