I'm pretty stoked that about the price I got on that f29. Hopefully the order goes through, I'm trying to get a black one which was OEM only I thought but I saw the option at cambria which really put me over the top.

I never liked spd pedals on my mountain bikes, I'm trying out eggbeaters on my new bike.

Pshhh...when I turned off my computer after my ride today it said my max speed was 23.3 mph.

Then when I got home to add the figures to my mapmyride.com calender it said my max speed was 80.8mph.

I think the first figure was bull****. I did 80.8 mph!!!

Haven't had a computer on my MTB for years, just a watch.

Used to do three hour rides where the average speed was ~8mph....speed really became unimportant.

I was using a stop watch until I got this thing. and it served it purpose.
Truth is, I am obsessed with silly stats.

I remember I used to play baseball on my 8bit Nintendo system and I would log every pitch, at bat, and every other stat you could think of in a booklet of graph paper. That year Ramon Martinez had a 38-3 season with a 0.78 era.
Mike Piazza jacked 138HR and Delino Deshields stole 204 bases.

All depends on your priorities. I road bike for cardio fitness and love the features of my Shimano Flight Deck, but I could care less on a MTB. I used to, but I don't anymore.

MTB'ing is my escape from everything...hell, I prefer to ride solo so there's no waiting/hurrying.

I got a black OEM one off eBay. I was going to order a new one from Cambria last night as well (and flip the eBay one) but black was n/a. It was there when I post the info - hope you get yours

My current love. 2007 Redline Proline Cruiser. 24". Old skool decals, some upgrades (Holy Rollers, Bulldog front brake, Avid levers, sealed Beartraps). I ride trails like a mofo on it, hopefully get back to the track at some point.



My old flame. 1995 Cyclecraft Pro XL. This is the bike that I used to race BMX on. Cost me a fortune when I built back in the day. Started off royal blue, then pearl white, now its WRB. I had it painted it back when I gave it to my little bro 5 years ago--he loved my WRX at the time. Profile 180's, Answer Alumilite bars, DK stem, old Suzue/Araya 7X looseball wheelset that I had laying around, etc...

I'm gonna buy him a new bike, b/c I want it back, lol.



Former urban assault vehicle. 2001'ish Specialized Rockhopper A1. 13.5 frame. Bought it to beat on when I lived in Boston (It was way too small for me, bought it on an impulse buy). Started off white/royal blue with an Answer suspension fork. Stripped off the powder and polished it. Ditched the suspension fork for a rigid Tange and street tires. Bike took a beating. Tore it down and rebuilt it last December and gave it to my mother for Christmas. Its a total mom-mobile now. Big cushy seat, front bag, rear shelf, blah blah...



Also have an 87' Schwinn Predator 1/4 Flash F/F that i'll build up someday too... I used to have a lot more, but slowly got rid of things over the years.

picked up the Salsa el mariachi today. Is it possible to DIY the Fox F29 RLC swap? The bike has a Cane Creek headset. Everything else looks to be straightforward.

Yeah it should be pretty easy unless you're changing the headset.

It should be very easy, provided you have a few basic tools.
you will need a new star nut for it if you don't have one already.

So its been a interesting week.

I picked up one of these last week after 14 years of never touching a bicycle.

Found it on craigslist and got a great deal.

Then I proceeded to do this the following day, ironically in my driveway and not from any actual mountain riding.

Threw a gauze pad over it and then headed over to Laguna (that's just some place in scicland) for a bit of trail riding.

Got used to riding again after a few runs and a few falls but had a great time.

Then realized the easiest way back down the mountain was through some downhill trail called telonics.


We parked by the street down there.
All in all it was a day well spent.

the shop where I bought it (EMS) charges $50 for a fork install. Seems more than fair.

here's a pic of the bike...brought it home yesterday. I think I'd like to ride it on the stock fork for a bit before putting the Fox on....just to see what it's all about. It's been 17yrs since I had my C'Dale M1000 rigid bike.

mebbe. We'll see...others have said with 29" wheels and 2.5" tires, there's no need for anything more. That's why I want to ride it before swapping over.

I did the same thing when I got my first real mountian bike (GT aggressor), I flipped over the handle bars on the road infront of my house Couple stitches in the chin later and some cool scares I finally rode it on trails.

no kidding...I picked up two bikes yesterday...the Salsa (pre-modded from the factory) and a Scattante Emerald City single speed (made in China, generic parts). I'm looking over teh Salsa and the only thing I need are pedals and a bottle cage. The other....I start thinking of the things I can get....have to remind myself...I bought it for a reason (commuting, not modding) and it doesn't need anything except perhaps a rear rack and cargo bag.

I've concluded that bike mods are far cheaper and are better for me.

I'd look on craigslist instead.

I sold my Salsa, with a carbon fork and stays and full Ultegra and Bonty Race Lite wheels, for $1100. The bike had ~500 miles on it, and was like new. I'm certain that you could find a 105-level bike for what that one costs with just a little searching.

That's almost a department store bike. Go Shimano 105 or go home.
