This is what we had last time.

That shirt is no longer available and would be replaced with the following (with the red/white/blue logo imprint).

Please send me a pm if you are interested. If I see there is at least 12, I will get this in the works.
Late response her but I'd be in for bike kit and tri kit.

Need some advice on bike shops in San Antonio. I currently ride a Giant 29er and was finally getting back in the saddle. A few days back I went out and got a flat. fortunately, I was not to far from home.

Now for the help: I was fixing the flat back tire and noticed that a spoke on the front rim is broken. I have never seen this happen. I figure I can replace it myself if I can get a part. A more significant issue is that my disc brakes and all of the hardware around it is starting to show rust. Not sure how this happened since I never ride in the rain and have not had the bike in standing water. Any ideas on how I can combat the rust?? Any good shops in the San Antonio area??

If you live in Parker County here is a route you should consider. I ride this starting at dawn on Sundays. I park at the Dennis road exit and head west on the access road - very rural and many miles between off ramps so little to no traffic. I usually ride to 281 before turning around which is about 30 miles. This morning I was short on time so I turned around after crossing the river. Nice rollers the whole way with a few more challenging hills coming back near Canyon West

I bet that is a good one! I have been thinking about riding from my house Southeast into Hudson Oaks and ride back East along the frontage road to 180 then south on 2871 to lake Benbrook and make my way back to trinity park then a return ride.

I wouldnít hesitate to buy another Rocky Mountain. I had a RM6 years ago.

It was really well made, and a lot of fun for freeride and some dirt jumps.

I suspect that the new ones are just that much better. They have trail bikes that have 6Ē travel and way less suspension bob, plus be just as strong and weigh a few pounds less.



I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...

Comfort is what ya get from a good bike fitting

As for the Rocky Mountain Line of bikes they are very well put together with quality components. Their product lines flow really well and have bikes for most disciplines. I have one of their Vertex 930 Race XC bikes and love it.

The rusty hardware just needs to be cleaned, as for the rotors take a scotch brite pad to them and scrub the thin rust layer off. I would tend to guess the bike has been left in a place were its getting hot and cold and the metal just sweats in the temperature swings, my bikes are cleaned and brought into the house after each use.


The broken spoke/nipple would be best fixed by a shop, your spokes need to be at the correct tension to keep you wheel from warping, not saying you cant do it yourself, just saying I would let a shop handle it. "Ride Away Bicycles" off I-10 is a good shop from what I have heard.

Agreed. I have been getting my bikes from Mad Duck for about ten years. Fitment is everything for sure. I will need to demo one.

If anyone is looking for a new Full suspension MTB in a large frame a fella here on TBH is having to sell his brand new Rocky Mountain Element C50, Grey and Black and very clean and its a smoking deal. I just saw the bike and its NICE!

I finally have the jersey design from Jakroo. I should get the short design tomorrow and can then start taking pre-orders. As a reminder, these come with the option slim, standard and relaxed fit.

I have the top and bib shorts loaded in the store. I will take orders through next week, then turn the order in. From that point, it will take "up to" 2 weeks to get them.

Let me know if you have any questions!

How my day ended abruptly yesterday morning on a planned dirty Fondo..

1.5 laps in banged a big rock and shifted two gears into derailleur Chaos..I had to bend the hanger to get it out of the wheel/spokes so it would at least roll.

What cassettes are you guys running on your road bikes? I need an upgrade. I was riding with some other older guys and I noticed most of them were running a 28 as their biggest cog. I think my lowest gear is only a 21. (!?) I have Dura-Ace components but they are very old. I assume a new Shimano cassette would be compatible?

Up front is a 53/42.

If any of you were having trouble ordering, please try again. I made an adjustment to the order form that should fix it.

I'll leave the ordering up through Sunday and turn it over to Jakroo first thing Monday morning.

Don't slack!

Took my bike into the shop yesterday - they are installing a 11-28. I think my legs will appreciate the extra teeth on the steeper hills. My cardio fitness is still pretty good so I can still spin, but at age 62 I am finding it difficult to maintain the muscle mass to grind like I once could.

Do you monitor your heart rate? yesterday I did 23 miles and I was at 163 at second half of the ride. I was pushing pretty hard. I'm 55. I wonder if thats too much. I felt winded but not like I was gonna die.

Using the old 220 minus your age method to compute maximum heart rate, at 163 you were close to red-lining. Pretty good that you could hold it at that level for that long. I need to look into getting another monitor. I had a 1st generation Polar back when I was a serious runner and I believe it helped me a lot..

Ultegra 11-28 here. With the standard 53-39 up front it covers what I need... up to and including the Tour das Hugel (~14k feet of climbing in 105 miles).
