Just picked up a Diamond Back bike. It's black and purple.
Just getting it dialed in. The Derailers are sticky.

I have the bike dialed in. I like not having any fork or frame shocks. This bike is very predictable.
No fat tires. File under speed merchant. Meow

Went up Rattle Snake Hill behind Blossom Hill Cemetary in Concord NH yesterday. Found what I think was Perry's #2 quarry. With the leaves mostly down good views of the old operation. All the Mt. Bikers say Highlands is good, this place is a rock hoppers dream. There are 20 or more miles of trails in the area and Ice water falls to rival the whites. There are natural caves and a 20 acre birch forest with huge boulders and lots of bobcats on the north shoulder (toward Fisk Hill). On the SW face are the ghost quarries (prison) and you always see porcupines. There are over a 100 quarries up there and new ones to be found. I've skied the hill too many times to count.

This is a stock photo. I'll get some more soon....

But tell me, did you sail across the sun? Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded And that Heaven is overrated? And tell me, did you fall for a shooting star? One without a permanent scar, and did you miss me While you were looking for yourself out there?


But tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet? Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day And head back to the Milky Way? And tell me, did Venus blow your mind? Was it everything you wanted to find, and did you miss me While you were looking for yourself out there?

Here's a fun one. This is the old Boston and Maine Turntable in Concord. There's a huge "warehouse" where they used to repair stuff. This is where the Engine would be taken off the main track and this would let them send it to be repaired or what not. It's still in tact butt, hasn't been used since I'm guessing the 1950's.

Not a great bike ride, lots of old and new trash all over...

Second time in two weeks ended up in the ER from getting hit on Mt Bike.

First time, the motorist didn't stop so I threw a chunk of ice at the rear window.

Last night an uninsured chick hit me on Main St. Uninsured smoking a cigarette and fat. She was a big girl...

Life is weird, yea life is weird.
