      Hey monkey,
      Mamm's right don't waste money on lighter bits esp skewers and things like that. If you want to climb better, get some lightweight tires & tubes first, then lighter wheels.
      But that bike is made to be thrashed, and as the great saying goes
      "light, strong & inexpensive...choose two"
      Edit: Maybe give Cycology in Gladesville a call for a helmet. I have known the guys there (terry, Neil & Chris) for about 20 years through racing & freestyle bmx, seriously, they will help you and let them know I referred you. They are top guys, mainly bmx, but bmx stuff is the toughest stuff anyway. Aaron

      This confuse monkey???
      I think ill just learn to live with the weight of the bike. Have changed seat for comfort, grips to lock ons, pedals to decent ones, skewers for bling and seatpost clamp so seat can not be stolen!! That will be it till i break/wear out stuff.
      I just need to ride every day to get my strength and fitness up.

      hmmm,... yessss .... there's nothing worse than havin a F@#$ hot bike, and then a grandpa scoots past you on a climb.

      very embarrassment.

    10. 02-23-2006 12:25 AM #85

      meet at the side of the road - across the road from the reactor carpark entrance. So we saddle up and go riding from the car.

      What time? Maybe we should check the weather?

    17. 02-23-2006 01:22 AM #92
      check the weather - for what ?
      Are you a icepole ? Do you melt in the rain ?

      I'll be putting on my Blackspire chainguide on that bike which will also run 1" Duros. Talk about a bike
      with a fuucked up identity crisis... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Mamm, since you helped me with my sneakers, I will help with your bike. Your on a on-line spree anyway, hey?
      Get this
      http://www.jensonusa.com/store....aspx
      Get some Profile 3 peiccro-mo bmx cranks w/ a euro BB, maybe a 44 front ring & 16 rear. Most of all get a rigid front fork.
      Oh maybe loose the front brake n chop down those bars a bit. I guess you'd have to build another bike then.

    19. 02-23-2006 01:27 AM #94
      mikes a sissy,
      I would pay to see mike in the bush on a bike.
      the closest he will get to riding in the bush is riding around the tree in his backyard.

    20. 02-23-2006 01:29 AM #95
      I would love to come for a ride one day too, Sunday is family day though. Only day I can't ride unless it's laps in the park with my daughter in the babie seat.
      I really need to get in the dirt anyway, and if you guys will jump off things, i can film or take some pics for you (I have a rigid bike).
      maybe in a month or so on a Saturday?

      Why do you think i advised mammy to buy it?

      Kunt.
      Remember, your girlfriend could have done better.

      latino, they are classy elegant rides indeed. The love-heart rocks!
      Gotta say tho, as much as I appreciate the singlespeeders, It's not for me.
      That's why I put the rear mech on the Rhythm.

      There is no better than me mammy. Ask my missus and deal with it.
      Pat, i am short already and could shrink more if i got wet riding. I am willing to chance it though. 9.30 is a bit rough but i should be ok.[IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I also got new rear der and hanger yesterday. Going to get rid of the crappy deore and put on a new roadie 105 long cage. The deore springs are so weak the chain slaps around riding off gutters! Have heard good things about people using roadie stuff and only cost $45.

    25. 02-23-2006 04:54 PM #100
      oh god dont do that.
      XT SHort cage - unless you want to leave it on a rock somewhere. Do not go XTR.
