Just found out another cycling buddy has passed away, in a motorcycle accident back in his native UK.

Alex.

I can but it changes both the look n riding dynamic of the bike.

so I'm keeping busy by test riding different frames and spec'ing out build options.

Not because of the crack, something came up and hit the frame, but because there were some blemishes in the paint.

they gave a 17 year old that lives in the village a ticket for going 8 miles an hour over the speed limit..

I wish that were an option. 16-19 miles one way, but the roads around my office are far from bike-friendly. They're working on widening & repaving the worst one, but still pretty risky.

I cut through a couple of neighborhoods. My biggest stretch of main road is about a mile.

I had a good November for riding even with as cold as it has been here

I think unemployment had something to do with these miles

Took my 10 year old mountain bike to the shop for some work and discovered that it will cost me more to fix the bike than what I paid for it originally.

shocks blown.
rims cracked.
bolts completely rusted
entire drivetrain needs to be replaced....

I'll dump this, but it is not worth it to sell it on ebay as I will get crap for it.
and specialized has a trade in where I can get almost $500 for it.
sort of like trading in your car to the dealer, just less hassle than selling it privately.

I am thinking for the amount that I ride, I will be getting a 27.5+ bike (3" tires) as apposed to a fat bike (4+" tires)
