Tis the one on the left.
I abused that bike in every way imaginable. I remember replacing bearings in the crank that ground down to odd shapes or even broke a few. I still have scars on my hand from a close ca ... Read More »
What a day that was :D
Maybe I should have gone for more than a handful of rides since the Double Dare. Maybe I should have spent more time prepping my bike gear instead of my canyoneering gear. Maybe we should have done the smart thing and gone for five, or even six checkpoints, instead of all s ... Read More »
