...for not resorting to snippy online flame wars while we've endured a particularly un-rideable winter and (so far) spring!

Personally I wish there had been a bit more drama. Think about it.  Can't ride trail - need some entertainment. Right? Too bad I'm not good at starting stuff.  :D

26" wheels, single speeds, and platform pedals are all stupid and outdated.   ;D

Who are these neandrethals who are still running tubes in their tires?
 
Strava is awesome. I set a new best time on Pine Loop in the mud.. Unfortunately, I had to run over an older couple and a couple of girl scouts to do it, but it was worth it (to me).
 
Is that a good start to getting some entertainment going?

Same can be said for 6" travel bikes...

Is Pine Loop a good place for my new CR250R?
