Hello guys, bike rider here also. I mainly do MTB and Bmx. Have a road bike but don't put any miles on it. Last time I rode it was to eat dinner. Probably not too many Bmx riders in these forums. Been doing it for 33 plus years.
I see you all talking about hubs. Chris King are so long lasting. I have a set that are about 17 years old and my wife is on them now. But my hub of choice now is onyx. A fairly new company but coming on strong. Love their instant engagement and no sound..

I come to this thread to see Mooty's garage, his food pics and California pics.

Ritesh - who claims to be Vegan but my wife calls me a Flexeterian(I'm flexible on my diet) :-)
u are younger than i.
i have broken wrist, elbow, clavicle, dislocated shoulders all on MTB all during college and grad school now older trying not to do too many crazy stunts, so far less broken bones.

Alright, i will be brief on it: and I have to say after this post i will put my head in the sand, plug my ears, never visit this thread!! This is clearly total lack of self control from my part. (no affiliation with dr Greger, not spending my afternoons at NutritionFacts.org)

Ok here it is: You don not need to be vegan or even vegetarian to have the full benefits of a vegan diet. In fact, I am almost certain you are better of if you are not religiously vegan. What you need is a plant based diet with occasional meat, cheese, etc. (and wine)
I went through all the phases of being vegan, then not, not fully. The fact is we need to pay attention to what we eat, but taking it to the extreme is not our best interest. Again, no affiliation with NutritionFacts but if you want to start somewhere that is one of the best places online.

This thread has to go back to biking!
i do eat veggie,
but veggie alone is boring. i need all the other stuff.
plus i still dont understand what is carbohydrate, sugar, i can't tell difference b/n chicken, beef or pork and i dont really care.
if it taste good, i will inhale it.

the gray one is modded 92 964C2
if you have bug, buy it today. AC will only go up more and more. i know b/c i bought a lot and each one cost a lot more than previous. (same model, you dont wan tto know what those two cars cost, let's just say GT3RS pricing and premium are not nearly as shocking as what i paid for those AC cars)

Meat = food
Plants = medicine = poison, if eat too much
Sugar/carbs = poison

And that was a freaky movie...

I didn't see any bikes, Porsche's, or food in that trailer. Must not be the true Kalifornia!! LOL

Move to Wisconsin. No earthquakes, mudslides, hurricanes, or wildfires. Just the occasional blizzard and that is rare. Is a little chilly at times though but you can drive on the lakes here.

Col of the day: Passo del Mortirolo

Diabolical climb, one of the hardest I've done. Don't do this without close to 1:1 gearing. Enjoy

Exactly Mooty! Clearly he is a super strong rider. I too used a 34X28 and I suffered greatly. Big mistake, I should have at least had 34X30 and maybe 34X32 to ride up that beast. I rode it as part of the Grandfondo Stelvio Santini http://www.granfondostelviosantini.com/ The Mortirolo killed my time, fortunately I recovered a bit to ride up the Stelvio pretty well. Fantastic region to ride, I highly recommend staying in Bormio and riding these cols some day, pure cycling heaven.

BTW, love the view looking out your garage. If only I had that view now.

Sorry to disagree, but 'nectar of the gods' is clearly reserved for coffee (along with occasional dark chocolate). Much more important for day to day functioning and enjoyment than alcohol (IMHO).

If you lived in California and had access to the amazing selection of micro-brewed beers out here, you might re-think your last sentence.

Funny you mention how you all like to drive on lakes. I think a year or two a large group did the on one of your lakes and the ice gave in
