About a month or so ago a very brave(or foolish depending on your take of it) soul sent
in a few pictures of his bike asking for opinions, criticisms, ideas, etc. He sure got them
and it was interesting. I think I may do this for the h*ll of it. If, and it's a big if, I can learn
to operate a digital camera, then "IF" I can figure out how to download it to my computer,
and lastly "IF" I can actually determine how to post the pic's on this blog. My plan is to ask my 10 year old nephew to help me out, so it may succeed. I am curious as to how many
riders out there(and there seem to be more than a few that claim to know how to set up
a bike) have the raw nerve and courage that it takes to do this? Are you tough enough
to take the laughter, the "what the h*lls", the "what an idiot", and all the other "comments"?
Who, out there, has thick enough skin for this? :? :? :? :wink::wink: :roll: :roll: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Lightweight!

    I am building the courage and technical know how to get video footage of me on the rollers(which will be a task in its self). With the hope that the BR faithful will critique my riding position.

    I think my beer belly may have to be allowed to take the place of thick skin :oops: :oops:

    A friend of mine (who's trying to sell expensive rollers) shot this:

    Do those rollers have a flywheel Andy? I'm pretty sure my cheap ones wouldn't spin long enough to remove a shoe without me pedalling...
