Thanks .. but to be honest I am ready for Spring and warm weather. I am so not looking forward to more snow .. but gonna get it anyways .. lolNice setup. Hopefully you get that snow... we were forecast a possible 4" today but it rained instead.
Looks like It will be mud riding time after work instead
Congrats!I hear you on that! I also was diagnosed with severe Osteoporosis several years ago .. effecting my left hip mostly. Through a nasal med back then and now through diet I have been able to keep it checked at moderate. When I fractured my pelvis 8 weeks ago, the doctor believed I had RE fractured it (1st time 1989) So this time was a little scary for me at my age of 63 and 125 lbs 5'5" lady .. would it heal properly and would I be able to ride again which I need to do for my health to keep my bones strong .. enjoy getting outside? This ran through my mind as I dealt getting around on crutches in pain, the difficulty of sleeping at night because the fracture would not allow me to sleep on either side. So I would wake up with miserable lower back pain on the hour. I don't know what was worse .. the fracture or my back .. lol .. 8 weeks later it is all behind me YAY !!
Still .. I can't stress enough to visit a reputable bike shop. Let them know of your disabilities and they will measure you and fit you to a bike that won't hurt you down the road.
A good friend of mine lives near Springwells for more than 30 years. I am down in Monroe .. and I guess you have gotten wind of the snow coming our way .. especially south umm yeah Monroe County .. sigh ..Welcome back to riding! That is so great that you can enjoy the simple pleasure of riding a bike again, regardless of the type. Waiting for another big dump in the D tonight. It will fill in the pot holes at least temporarily. I just wish they would tear up the secondary roads and make them dirt- all they would need to do is grade them once in a while.
Sure .. Fyxation grips and pedals, Daves Mud Shovel fenders, I swapped out the stock seat for the WTB that was on my REI Madrona mtb 29'er because it is wider and more comfortable for my healing fracture, Relevate Designs seat bag, OMM Phat rear rack. The lights are used on other bikes, not just this one, Bontrager bottle cages that I bought off ebay. That little top tube bag is a Timbuck2 Bento bag that I bought from REI on sale that I swap from bike to bike .. can stick my iPhone in while riding (really handy so I can quickly grab the phone and take wildlife pics when on park trails) I can also use that small bag for house keys, small wallet/purse .. I am a woman, small tools)That's a beautiful bike. Do you mind listing the upgrades and accessories you have on it?
Why thank you sir! Oh .. I almost forgot to mention this handy mirror that can be mounted on the bars, the fork .. Zefal Spy mirror that I bought off amazon for about $15. One small rear view mirror that I can use on all four of my bikes.Perfect thank you. You have a great eye for form and function. I was trying to get some ideas for my fatboy.
You noticed. I took the pic of the mirror a few days ago for my local bike group on FB and just didn't mount it on the Pugs yet. My ride was a spur of the moment. I was half way down the porch steps, house locked up when I remembered .. meh .. later.Why doesn't your picture include the bar mirror?
