    A new bike

    I'm currently working on getting a new bike. A friends owns a local bike shop and trying to talk me into a Niner EMD 9 (slightly more than I want to pay). I'm also considering KHS Flagstaff. Hopefully, by mid May I'll rocking with something new.

    Yeah, yeah, I know, reflectors.

    Why do they even put them on? Road bikes don't come with them, and there you might be actually on, you know, the road. With cars and stuff.

    Pretty heavy duty jack you got there for working on a bike. I just use a bike stand.


    Nice seeing someone else get into cycling. I enjoy riding on the road as much as on the trail... they're both a lot of fun in their own way. I'm looking forward to hearing your take. I only started semi serious roadie-ing about four years ago, before that I did some slick tire mtb road stuff, but that's not nearly as fun.

    Thanks for asking, though clearly you haven't been reading my TR's.

    Yes, I'm very happy with the new bike. I was already looking forward to this season, now with the new bike it's looking even better than expected. I can't wait to get back out on it!

    I've read great things about the DW-Link rear suspension, now I'm pretty sold. When seated pedaling on smooth ground I hardly know there's any rear suspension at all. When the terrain gets rough the bike just sucks it up and allows me to power right through it. It's like glue to the terrain. I've made a bunch of rocky and rooty climbs that I would have had a lot more trouble keeping the rear of the HT planted on. Now I just need to get my legs and lung back into shape so I can make the longer climbs again...
