    Hey,I'm about to buy a 1998 Reynolds 853 Jamis Dragon that I can't afford.
    Anyone interested in some Hugi 240 disc wheels. One is a 517 one rim is some other brand.
    They are very light wheels-$300 in NOLA
    They are currently on a NRS AIR fully suspended 15.5' frame-$500 in NOLA-heck the wheels are worth over 1/2 that.
    Either one- let me know.The NRS has a fancy linked suspension that removes BOB when pedaling.

    Hey Phoebeisis you wouldn't happen to know of any old road bikes just rusting away in a junk yard somewhere would you? I'm looking for a project bike mainly to ride around campus on. 2" wide tires get hard to pedal after a while...

    I used to go out quite a bit but I had a serious problem of continuing after several miles of riding had me pretty warn out. That's never a good idea because you lose concentration. I wrecked out and tacoed my front wheel (which led me to the purchase of XT hub/Mavic Rim set up). A few months later I took on a trail that was a little too advanced for me and I wrecked out pretty badly. Ended up flipping over my bike and tore every ligament in my left shoulder causing my clavicle to completely separate from my shoulder blade. It was the absolute worst pain I have ever felt (even worse than fracturing my ankle in 3 places playing high school football back in the day). Needless to say, I haven't been back out in a while. I'm sure I'll mount back up before too long, though!
    Ouch, how is it that I just read this? Sorry dude.

    I'm just getying back into biking as my oldest is getying better on his ride.it's 20 years old with ancient dynamo gears and components.

    Haha, unfortunately, it's part of the game. It all healed up pretty well and I only have occasional discomfort (I wouldn't call it pain). The good news is that the sports injuries doctor actually said it should make my shoulder more elastic and giving to impact. In that sense, my shoulder is less likely to be hurt than it was before the accident. LoL.

    Anyway, I'm glad you're getting back into biking. It's a great hobby and a lot of fun. It's certainly my favorite way to exercise. I love being outdoors and you can see some beautiful scenery on a mountain bike.

    The flippers around here are trying to sell all kinds of POS old road bikes for more than they sold new 30 years ago.

    Vincennes- whoooooo the DESCRIPTION alone hurts my shoulder!! Glad you are on the mend!
    Just got back from my ride. I've had to cut back a bit the last 2 weeks- have/had a horrendous cold/cough-finally getting over it!

    Ahh well that's lame. I just want something to project on in my down time.

    The cold thing seems detrimental to a good bike ride also. With all this pollen I would believe it though...

    So mtn biking is a lot like owning a truck. You're never quite done adding on or changing out. Well recently I've been feeling the same way about biking. So on it's way is a 2011 Tommaso Tiempo road bike in blue! Can't wait! Any recent changes to you guys biking setup?
