    I shower before every ride. I wear only clean high quality bibs. I shower immediately after every ride. Tried different saddles. SSs seem to be my lot in life.

    Unless I crash very early on tomorrow's ride, I'll reach 6,000 YTD miles on Labor Day.

    Probably my bikes are a bit too modern for this thread.....but thought I'd post them anyhow.

    I race road and used to race XC.....so they are flat out speed machines rather than some of the more crafted and lugged steel things that are in the thread so far.....

    I saw this on a bike forum. Looks like your green bike, with a slight frame modification...

    No, not at all! Great stuff :cheers2:

    I posted my Carbon/Campy Orbeas early on, and several guys posted modern carbon road bikes, as well.

    There are several high-end MTB posted, like X's new ride, and I think someone posted a Cervelo just a couple pages ago :thumb:

    What are the components you've got on that road bike?

    The famous "When I was a kid". A bike in the '50's and '60's was kinda spendy. I only had used bikes. That changed. The flood of cheap bikes took over. Riding styles changed and all that. I loved to buy bikes at thrift stores on the cheap. I found a great Trek that I rode for awhile. I bought lots of older school 20in bikes. I had some really cool ones and gave them away to the kids in the 'hood. My bike riding days are way over. I gave away the Trek. I had a Univega that was of no use to me. What to do? There is kinda of a tradition of leaving stuff outside with a "Free" sign posted on it. 3 days passed and the bike was still there. Today, the bike was gone. Happy Trails.

    Since my last post, Mrs. Ti broke another bike. That’s 3 in less than 2 years. Fortunately this time insurance will cover it as it fell off her car rack.

    For me, I’m a day late and a dollar short, but I went over the 7,000 YTD mile mark today. I’m hoping for a big October as we’re doing a cycling vacation in Sicily this month.

    I went out on flats for the first time today. It was strange not being clipped in. Gotta love Five Ten shoes, super grippy and easy to walk in.

    Hit some real trails yesterday. Got five miles in before I was done. My ribs and shoulder were screaming at me.

    It was awesome!
