    I rarely watch tv, but yesterday saw this guy on a commercial ripping down a downhill, do a
    respectable huck, gain speed on a really steep loose descent, then endos, hits *hard*, slides
    a ways, and then he opens his camelback and pulls out a plastic chocolate milk bottle and
    takes a drink.

    Anybody else see this one? For that matter, Busch Lite had a really cool mtb commercial on a
    couple months back, too. (As if we'd drink that generic, mass-produced horse pi$$), but hey, the
    riding was cool.

    btw, got on a spin bike during our V's-day getaway at the hotel. Spinning still sucks.

    paladin pretty sad when tv's the closest I get to riding this winter.

    The only reason that I don't live in the Northwest. It is nice to be able to ride all year long.
    Even though this year it just ain't the case.

    I understand, we've had a bunch of snow here all winter, and pretty cold too. I just don't have the
    time to make a trek south or west where the trails are open, so I've had to road ride all winter. It
    may be the Fruita Fat Tire Festival before I get much dirt time.

    This is the most intense winter we've had in about 14yrs. Just when we had 4 or 5 dry days in a row,
    and the trails were frozen and I thought I could ride, it warmed up and rained. Now its 50 degF, but
    sloppy. Gonna have to put on gore-tex hat and go running.

    I haven't even seen the usual suspects, roadies, commuters, dui riders. Nobody's riding this winter.

    I was dismayed when I saw it. Dewbishness on parade.

    Heh.

    > btw, got on a spin bike during our V's-day getaway at the hotel. Spinning still sucks.

    I know there's a joke in here somewhere...

    Sorni! You got this one?

    > pretty sad when tv's the closest I get to riding this winter.

    Damn, don't I know it. Even the fire/logging roads are snowy/icy. And ice sucks to ride on without
    some sort of studs, and I ain't poppin' for $50 tires. Each. I got bike withdrawls bad, but if
    this rain keeps up, and melts the snow, I'll at least get to ride the logging roads. The trails
    round here drain really well, but they need a couple of dry days to firm up so that bikes don't
    dork 'em up.

    The damn bike has been maintained within an inch of it's life - stop me before I buy something CF or
    Ti for it...

    I don't remember if this has been covered here but .... DIY snow/ice tires:

    Get:
    1) a box of generic ~6mm to 8mm pan head screws, the kind that hardware stores sell by the 100 count
    box and model railroader type use to secure marklin track.

    2) A set of old tire liners or a couple of old thorn resistant tubes.

    3) ShoeGoo Or Fast Tack.

    4) A pair of worn, but not worn out tires.

    You know what to do. Use an awl or small nail to punch a hole through the blocks in the tread. Run
    the screws from the inside out. Cover the heads with a layer of glue, and then lay down the tire
    liner over the glue. Instant ice tires for ~10 bucks, assuming you have the tire liners and used
    tires to start with.

    You only want the screws to stick out 1mm to 2mm. As the screws wear out you can pull up the liner
    and replace them. You can also try different paterns to see how it changes the handling.

  11. Yep,

    Seen the comercial once. Pretty funny considering it would be foolish to carry any dairy product in
    your pack when doing anything outdoors for any length of time.

    Bleach , give me water , juice or Gatoraid over milk any day during or after riding .
