All those support post look like a great way for someone to eat it.

“LeMond was third or fourth in line, and the fucking smell was horrendous,” said Paul Kimmage, the Irish rider on the French RMO team. Kimmage says he saw a brown liquid streaking the insides of the American’s legs, running into his shoe

Oh my, I've been looking at the stache and Roscoe 8. Leaning more towards the Roscoe. I'd love to hear more about it once you put some miles on it.

When did wheels on bikes and tire widths get so hilariously large?
I remember when it all started with 25" ... then 27" became the must have thing.
Now I see people riding on wheels that I swear ripped off a swamp buggy.
What's the purpose and when did this become a thing?

Lots of people like fat bikes for winter riding here in CO. I personally didn't like the couple that I've demo'd. It feels like you're riding a bike with beach balls for tires, not to mention it didn't actually do very well in the snow.

Some of those same people swear that fat bikes are fun for the regular trails out here, but I just think they're kind of dumb. The only purpose they would serve me would be as a mountain hunting bike since it is basically a monster truck that can get up/over a lot. Especially if it has a pedal assist.

I ended up selling my classic 2001 F600 Trek that I said Id never sell...
I brought it in 2005.. sold it for about $275...not bad..the guy who brought it from me update me on the upgrades he is doing...shit looks fly now...

I ended up picking up a 2012-2014 Scotts bottom bitch hood bike to replace my F600.
Gathering my street mods. Got it on the cheap.
Sold my GF bike she was not using much...and replaced it with a Walmart Hyper. For $125 this bike is fantastic. I got one for my co worker...(he paid me back)...
Its a good hood, commuter shit on bike...for when you are visiting people like me in the hood and want to chain it to a pole.

Finally got my bike race also.
GF bike will be leaving soon. so ill just have my main scotts road bike...and my scotts hood creeper.

Dirt bike crash have me only riding at work for less than 15 miles on lunch breaks...low low low elevation changes..working on my foot now.

ive owned 3 scotts so far...


Garry Fisher work bike




The Scotts...









work lunch run....

Von likes to think he still lives in the hood.
He was there long enough to remember when it was hood.

But today? His neighbors eat Quinoa and do Yoga in their backyard.

A full CF Framed hybrid for $400?

Frame weighs in at 2lbs 13oz. Junk most of the components but build up the frame for a project.

I'd probably chance a chinese carbon frame, they have come a long way over the years (still not comparable to top name brands).
