haha. ken, you own a bikeshop so you like to encourage bike sales! Your dream is that someone will one day walk into Oak Bay and say - "I'll take 1 of everything please and don't spare the ti bolts!!"
haha. I wondered when you'd pop up considering this post flies directly in the face of all that is reasonable to you.
I wouldn't call it stupid. I have ridden the living piss out of remedy(that means it's in perfect shape when it comes to resell) and can safely claim that this has pretty much been my one bike for the last year. Socoms were stripped and sold while I waited for the Podium. I can only think of 2 times on cypress where I missed having a big rig.
I ride bikes 4-5 days a week. My remedy sees 3 of those days minimum and I ride my podium maybe 1 or 2 days. I don't ride the park much and I prefer the super-d trail riding style A LOT these days so I've been contemplating the 1 bike idea. I can sell my 2 bikes and build 1 shit hot bike which I could swap wheels and shocks(coil[HTML_REMOVED] air) depending on what kind of riding I'm doing. It's just an idea but I can't get the image of this bike out of my head(minus all the bontrager crap).
Anyone else contemplating the 1 bike thing?
that'll do but i'm still going to finish sanding my helmet dammit.
Crying for coffee?
It's not like it is some exotic IPA.
Unless it's that exotic coffee bean that gets eaten then pooped out by some animal.
Noted to keep an eye on it.
The crying or swearing more accurately was more for my pants that I was wearing just moments before a client meeting.
Personally think the new '11 offerings from Trek look amazing. The remedy and scratch are the nicest looking do it all bikes out there.
I've owned and/or ridden a fleet of different bikes and consider my 09 Remedy to be my perfect do-it-all bike. If for some crazy reason I decided reduce to one bike I could see myself on a scratch with an adjustable travel fork and an airshock.
