^Nice rack!

Not a sticker..... every Niner has that painted on them

Sweet thanks.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Bike Rack

Hi,

I am looking for a non-hitch bike rack for my Grand Cherokee. Does anyone have any suggestions. I also do not want a roof rack.

Thank You

My Cobia, which is one step down from your x-cal, arrived today. I put it together after work and took it for a spin. Like you said, "I'll never go back." These 29ers fly.

I love mountain biking! I bought a black Trek Mamba February 2012 and I love it! Bad news is I havent ridden much recently, due to the killer heat in AZ. But I got a night ride in a few days ago with some friends, and am going again tomorrow.

My bike is all the way in CO when im in MT. It sucks so badly but by winter I should be in CO again. Next summer I will ride so much I use to easily put 20 miles on my bike in a single day. My long board is also in CO basically everything fun in life is miles away.

I prefer to call it ATB, like it was called back in the late '80s when I started mountain biking....

Now mostly sticking to road riding because I get really bad tennis elbow with the jarring I take on the trails. Getting old sucks.

It's simply useless to argue on the interwebs. It's akin to arguing with a toddler. Doing so only makes you look silly and they always poop their pants.

Going downhill is NOT mountain biking. If you can't climb the hill, you can't go down it!
