You'll regret your purist attitude on the uphills, against the wind, being chased by a bear, when you gotta pee.

I finally did a real ride, 3.5 hours, on the new beast. It felt like cheating. The 29" wheels rolled over everything. The suspension was set up a little soft but did not mess with the climbs. I put a little more air in it when I got back to the truck. It is easy to over steer with the wider bars and I need to learn the width of the bike for those speeder chase situations. The bike began to disappear under me. Hydraulic brakes are amazing. They are always there with a feather light touch. There are a couple steep creek bed crossing we do and the slightly slacker head tube and larger wheels made them a breeze. very much mud.

Sound like a guy that traded his VW for a Caddy.

I slowed the rebound in the rear shock for yesterdays ride. The setup is getting dialed in. I may rotate the handlebar 90 turning the sweep into a rise.

Someone here in town has theyself one of themthere 'lectric bicycles.

It's a 1950s-looking bike, and the dude is like a 60-ish looking hippie-dude, with a long-ish blonde hair and a handlebar mustache.

He passed me yesterday evening on the square, zipping right along (20 mph, maybe) with the faintest little whir as he went by.

Motor on the rear hub, btw.

I saw a kid in Nazi gear on one... not sure what he's going for. They seem handy for around town.

Just squeezed in a ride after work. Days are getting short. There is a real flowing section of the trail that I got to while on night vision. It was amazing running it in low light, everything went quiet and relaxed, rolling smooth climbs, swinging through curves, building momentum off the backside of each knoll, it was a beautiful run.

When he was riding the iron railing I noticed he was going back and forth with the pedals so it's not a direct drive. Oh wait, we talked about this before when he was riding backwards. nevermind

I don't remember ever seeing a compilation of Macaskill bloopers.The closest is...
