    Around here a bomber is a downhiller. I stick to roads and sometimes ride trails with some minor technical stuff.

    I used to when I was young and dumb. Broke my ankle and left my balls on the mountain. Never had the will to go get them again.

    i watched the then world No1 DH champion Steve Peat at the UCI World Cup tackle what the UCI called the scariest downhill course in the world. It made me realise that he and others like him are made from different stuff from the rest of us mortals.

    Insane speeds...

    i am not a downhiller and never have been, but during a ride i will encounter steep slopes and drop offs and try to take them as fast as i can without breaking any major bones....but i wouldnt do it exclusively.

    As we say in Scotland, i am too much of a fuckin shitbag.

    It's an asian tapestry-esque wind and water motif. Custom selection from Klein last year.

    Thank you! My pride and joy. In a 58cm frame, with pedals and bottle cages, she's about 16.5 lbs of hill-climbing love.

    How come you lot over there have 'feminised' bikes, when we refer to a bike as 'it'.

    I realized shortly after writing it that calling Marianne my "number one gal" could get me in a great deal of trouble.

    Don't let the wife catch you sniffing her saddle.

    She's the fiancee, mind you; even so, she already has caught me thusly, and worse. There is great tension. We're acting out "Cabaret" daily.
