What the heck is your name brother!!

And a huge congrats on the SS title!! Jason Wipf has been killing it on a SS this year in C3 40-49..He came in 2nd in the XC series.

I have only been riding for a year and half, started taking things a little more serious 2 months ago. TMBRA Cat 3 40-49 managed a 6th Place finish in the State Championship, next year I will be on the top of the box.

I ride a Giant TCR road bike and, every now and again, a Giant Yukon mountain bike. I just joined the Strava group. Scott Sharman is my name.

This year I will ride two MS 150's, Hotter N' Hell, and a handful of regional rides. The Burleson Honeytour is this weekend.

What Lights are peeps running?

I have a RAKClighting.com 3000 lumen Theia mounted on my helmet and so far it is NICE! Think the two coolest features are changeable lense and the Handlebar mount remote to vary the power outputs or turn it off and on.

In, but way behind most of you. Picked up a Giant Yukon from Sierracharlie338 that was offered on my thread. Have to say riding a properly sized, quality bike is a whole other animal. First time I have been on anything but a cheap Academy special. Helmet recommendations? The less it looks like a mushroom head road bike helmet the better. Goal is to get in shape and be able to ride trails and parks around Austin etc with trips to the Colorado and New Mexico thrown in for more aggressive stuff. Thinking of spending the coin on a good helmet and be set up. Open to thoughts. Admit I don't like wearing one, but don't really want to fall and smack my head on a rock either.

I have a couple of Louis Garneau Quartz helmets that I use for both road and MTB. Fit to me is just as good if not better than Gyro. I would think like a handgun it's about how it feels.

Good luck.

Look for a helmet that has a MIPS system in it...Giro and other quality brands have integrated it into their manufacturing process.

Thanks for the helmet stuff guys. I did a leisurely 5 miles yesterday, mostly on paved road with a few decent (ok small) hills in there. Nothing for most of you, but a decent feat for a guy that hasn't peddled a bike for any amount of time since I was a kid. Still had more left in me but didn't want to be sore today.

Did 42 miles this morning but the wind got worse so I quit. Doing CDA 70.3 IM in two weeks and Wisconsin IM in September... Will be IM #19 and #20.. I’m that guy that finishes bottom 1/3 of the races though, it’s because I absolutely hate running...Ride 4-5 days a week depending on weather.

Does anyone have an indoor trainer they recommend? I hate the heat and with a newborn my schedule isn’t the easiest to just ride early before it gets bad. I’ve been looking at the Kinetic road machine 2.0

I won’t be cycling this year since I was in a bad car wreck and broke my wrist, tore some tendons, and busted some ribs so won’t be getting on stage. Figured it would be a good chance for my endocrine system to recover and then hit it hard all fall and winter since I’m already qualified to compete at nationals next summer. ��

The Kinetic is a fairly basic fluid trainer, and you can pick them up on Pedal bikes and junk on facebook all the time for cheap as well as Dallas craigslist.


IF you are really wanting to take you indoor training to the next level I would suggest a indoor "smart" trainer. I have a few riding buddies that have the Elite Direto and they have nothing but great reviews, even have a Pro female MTB champion that is a good friend that loves hers as well. They interact via Bluetooth with your computer or phone and have FTP testing, interactive workouts via Trainer Road, sufferfest, Etc. Not cheap but well worth it . ITs on my want list for sure.

Here is a review on it from DC rainmaker..

I just signed up for the Cactus and Crude MS150 from Midland to Lubbock on July 21-22nd...

I don't even own a Bike yet! Would someone want to lend me one for a couple months??! or possibly have one cheap that will roll me 150 miles? I don't have much budget for this ride, maybe $200.

I know I wont have long to train, so maybe y'all can give some tips on the best way to get up to speed??? Just go ride long and hard? Do I need to focus on pace from the beginning of my first ride or breathing?? Im trying to make the most of the month I have to prepare!

Thank you for signing up for a great charity ride!!!

For your first ride that's a lot to bite off

How tall are you, we might have a used old used trek down at the local shop.

Rides like that are just grit and tempo, stay at a comfortable pace

For anyone with kiddos the weehoo I go trailers are pretty cool. Bought one at the rei garage sale. Daughter is 19 months but sheís a fan. She likes being able to look around. We thought she was kind of scared and were contemplating putting the two wheel buggy back on when she tried to climb in on her own and kept saying ride. She didnít mind the helmet either Only issue was clearance on the back tire. Wife rides a base model diamondback 27.5. PVC coupler under the hitch solved the problem though.

Everything, when done, will be about $1900. It would cost $3500 - $5000 to buy this bike.

What are you guys using for transport racks? I like the Thule stuff but dang it's spendy. I have a truck but like to use the bed for gear under the backflip cover. Might have to just hold out for a deal on craigslist, but making sure I wasn't missing a cheaper option.

I use Yakima racks. My buddy has one he got off amazon (I think Hollywood?) and heís used it for about 4 years with zero issues.

Theyíre expensive but can be found used in good shape. Itís worth a quality rack, you donít want a failure on the rack when your transporting your bike

are you having someone build it or are you doing it all? Can you pm me some of the info on who did your frame.

My last tri bike I built up and regret selling it. After you've done a custom its hard to make compromises on off the rack!

I am building it. I worked in a bike shop while in college and raced for a few years, so the basics I have down. I'll be honest though, technology has gotten crazy and I had to do a ton of research before I began buying parts. I've been away for too long. Hubs, wheels, gears, headtube angles, chainstays lengths, etc. Have really changed alot in the last 15 years.

Back seat (folded up) of my f150 super crew. Got a cheap Amazon receiver hitch carrier for the wife's Exploder. It's only $100 but mechanically solid. I trust it. Allen Sports I think.

Love 1up and Kuat racks. Hate the price tag associated with them though. I settled for a Saris Freedom and liking so far.

Picked these up thinking they would work for the mtb. Didnít realize there wasnít a platform on each side and canít return. Brand new. $35 TYD

I'm a gear nut and sucker for a sale- bad combo. I had been looking at the clipless pedals that still had a bit of a platform and thought that's what these were. It would basically be the side you see with a clip. Be a while before I want to try them anyway so thought someone may want them. I'll toss them in the cabinet if not.

The Trek 2019 lineup is going to be available on September 10th. My son is going to get a new ride for his birthday. The Trek Roscoe is a sweet bike. I just found out that they are offering it in a 24" kids model now. I am going to pre-order the Silver/Blue this week. For an 8 year olds introduction to Mountain biking it will be awesome. Total weight is 25 pounds. It is a 1x8 setup with disc brakes and 2.8 tires!! Doesn't need a suspension fork with that much cushion.

Bike is ordered. Should be in around September 20 or so. His Birthday is October 15th. Perfect timing since I have to miss it again.

Wife just sent me some pics. I am stoked, although she is playing teaser and won't send me anymore. I'll fix that when I get home!!!!

Awesome! Can't wait to see more pics. I would love a full build along with part choices included. I don't know how to fully build a bike at the moment but doing it appeals to me.

Didnít realize us dirt guys were welcome here

Iíll play. I mostly do dirt trails around Houston but have a buddy that is hardcore into it and is trying to get me to travel some. Hereís my new sled I just picked up this year.



Iíve added some modifications to it already this is just the stock picture. Looking to do more riding this year.
