not completely new here, but hardly any posting. I signed up somewhere last year when I bought a Dogsbolx on here from ededwards.
Wheels are spare ones. Hope Tihubs are being build up with DT ceramics. And, yeah I know I over-greased the chain
I have been into MTBs since 1988. Started of on a Giant, had a few GTs and a Koga. Work and other bad habits kept me away from bikes for a couple of years, but in March this year during a MTB weekend in Belgium with some friends (Roy aka yo-eddy and some others) reality hit hard. The guys I rode with in my teens were quickly disappearing from view while my lungs were hanging over the handlebars, my legs crumbled and I generally felt pretty f*kced up. Decided then and there that something had to change.
So, fast forward half a year or so, kicked the smoking habit, ride the Roberts 3 to 5 times a week on some very challenging XC tracks, feeling super fit, and getting faster and faster (I just loooove over-taking fullies in the downhill, especially when the rider wears full body armour
) and got my sights set on doing my previous home track Schoorl (the 2009 OWMTBC venue) in under 40 minutes (44 right now).
Roberts changed my life
My compliments on the site: truly amazing to see that there are so many like-minded folks out there! Just one drawback though: too many nice bikes 'n bits available! Just bought a Pace RC30 for the Roberts, and reached a deal yesterday on here for a Pace RC200. Finished a 29-er build 2 weeks ago, so the obvious question that arises is: how do you keep the missus from complaining and your marriage viable?! Any tips?
