Hi all,

I've just finished my white KLEIN Rascal... well, actually I still need a purple Ringle seat QR, but everything else is done. Went out for a ride today and man it rides like a dream!! I've been riding for about 3 hours and it was really fun! Dunno, but it's so much more comfortable than my Attitude or any other bike I have/had for that matter.

Anyway, took some pictures... most of them failed though, somehow my IXUS camera doesn't like anything white in pics. Dunno why that is but everything was overlit, even the ones without flash :-(

Well, here's what did turn out quite OK:

And what's really funny, there were mushrooms all over the place... isn't that supposed to be taking about a month for them to appear? Took some close-ups of those too, that's obviously what my IXUS is better at:

Anyway, hoping to find a QR for my new bike soon so it's "really finished". But man oh man, what a sweet ride this is. Also love the Manitou, they work soooooo much better than Rock Shox forks :oops:

Yep, that's the one... I knew that, you shouldn't eat them indeed. You should lick em (and eat box in stead hehe) 8) Don't the spots come up when they grow bigger? This one was only about 2 inches high, 3 at most. But since my camera was only about 2 inches away it looks bigger. I wish I could get shots like that from my bikes... them pics I made from my Attitude turned out the same way, totally overlit even without flash (I wouldn't think it's so hard to make descent pics outside?). That's why most of my bikes pics are made in the living room :-(

The other one I don't know actually... never seen that before :?: That was about 10 - 15 inches tall you know. Looked rather tasty too actually :twisted:

maybe you are right, but im not sure that is a fly-agaric, the ones ive seen have white spots even when they are small. but it doesnt matter anyway.
i know what try licking it all over and see what happens !! :lol:

I'm afraid it may turn into a big pink elephant or maybe an angry monkey :oops: :shock: So let's not do that then ;-)

Hey maybe I could sell them off here, like Mrs GT did with that cake :twisted: :lol:

You are right that is a Fly-Agaric and is highly poisonous, it is past it's best though..

Void, nice job there mate! and yes the fungi is a bit early this year due to the dampness.....
