    Better him than me!! Ouch!
    I've been riding my bike like a mad woman! I finally got a bike rack and my bike never comes off of it, that way I can just pull over on the way home and ride. I did about 75 miles last week. I'm going just about everyday, mostly roads though. I did just become a member with a group called Mass Bike and they'll be sending me a list of trails to ride around my area, so I get out in the woods.(which is where I'd much rather be) I get creeped out going alone on random trails, that's why I'm waiting for the info to come.

    Yeah. MB is awesome. I've got a Schwinn with disc brakes. I couldn't afford a full suspension bike, and I'm kinda glad I didn't get it. I'm looking at buying a longer travel fork, but those are pretty expensive. Riding the trails of the App. Mountains here in NC is awesome, and the scenery is what makes it all worth the money.

    The discs were the best investment yet. Even though the bike came with mech. discs on it, I upgraded them to Magura hydraulics and love them. That and TIOGA kevlar tires. Much lighter and agressive. Those dern rocks are hell on tires. But I like the discs for their stopping power and the fact the WHEN I bend a wheel, I can still have braking power on it, if I don't bend it too much. I'm trying to balance my budget on my truck and my bike. It seems both are the loves of my life. Freeride is awesome. Campus police hate it though.
