I'm tired of all these pristine show bikes polished and unriden. Let's see some pics of well abused bikes and parts. The dirtier the better. Bonus for ultra bling covered in trail muck to a near unrecognizable state, or anything bent and broken. So its middle of winter I know somebody is out their riding their bike "like they hate it" so post up the pics.

Ill get it started with a little bit of this:



And follow with one of these:



So, what you got?

Holy crap dude. Where were you bleeding from? Damn, thats ugly!
Someone doing trail work lopped the end of a branch off but they must have been pretty short because they didn't cut it back very far. I came flying around a heavily wooded corner and the freshly cut end of the branch that was still attached to the tree was hanging down in the center of the trail, and it jammed right into one of my helmet vents.

It peeled back a little flap of skin and deposited some bark under my scalp. Fortunately I was only about 1/2 mile from the car 'cause it was bleeding like crazy and the harder I rode the faster it bled :D

I have a friend who also rides and happens to be an MD so I headed over to his house and he drove me town to his office and sewed me back up. Lotsa blood but no big deal. A half a dozen sutures was all it took to put me back together. The bike looked pretty impressive though. :)

Since this post is more or less directed at me, I will post my comments. Were I live we can only ride the trails 9 months a year if we are lucky, after that there is too much snow. When this phenomenon occurs it is time to put the mountain bike away until spring. Me being the anal retentive soul that I am would rather get my bike ready for spring by taking it apart, regressing, lubing and cleaning everything, as opposed to riding it hard and putting it away wet.

We then must resort to riding the gravel roads of North East Iowa, and yes they sometimes do get messy. Oh great I now can join the club, pictured bellow is what wet gravel looks like when it meets a bike. Notice the similarities between wet dirt (or mud as some like to call it) and gravel grease.

I now would like to declare my manhood restated, as it was previously under suspension for posting a clean bike. Long live the morons that tear up our wet trails and skid around every corner, for they are truly HARD CORE.

The thread was not directed at you 1Sronge1, just inspired.
No offence intended.
None taken, it was just a good opportunity to act agitated and post some pics of my singled out GF Wingra.

After 1 day of riding in those conditions, my brakes (and shifters) became so clogged with dirt/mud/silt, that even squeezing as hard as possible, I could barely come to a rolling stop. Same thing happened with shifters at this year's 24 Hours of Moab, but my (new) Hydraulic brakes performed flawlessly. Well, except for going through an entire set of pads in 1 lap...
