Gone a while, but new bike brings new fun

welcome back to the dark side!

awesome looking bike. want the pedals :drool:

haha. Thanks. Miss anything good?
I never stopped riding, but did stop acquiring bikes. That changed with this one..
The pedals are serious business. Traction like nothing else. Shins like fresh ground burger. Helps they are made in Montana as well…

Oh yea. I know it's got a tall front end. But it levels off real nice when I hop on it. So far, so good. Been over a decade away from a hard tail, riding nothing but my heckler/bullet. This is re-learning for me. Can't just moto your way through stuff.

So yea. Been gone from here for a long while, but recently built up a new bike, and been riding it quite a bit more, so I figured I would share. This site brought me lots of advice, and lots of laughs.
So without any more delay… The new 1x9 in my stable of bikes.
Frame: Transition TransAm
Fork: 2011 RS Revelation ti
Brakes: Hope M4 evo front w. floating rotor, Hope x2 evo rear
Wheels: built in Santa Cruz, Spank Subrosa rim, Loaded Component Hubs.
Headset: Chris King
Cranks: RaceFace evolve
Pedals: twenty6 predator (in full rainbow vomit trim)
Bar: Funn Flat out riser.
Seat post: Loaded components
Tires: WTB Bronson (in process of converting to tubeless)

The chainguide is coming this week, as the first few rides the chain slap and drop got very old, very fast.
Any questions, just ask.

Great episode.
F1 was crazier back then. I Cannot imagine what monaco must have been like in those older cars.

Formula 1 Silly season.

absolutely cannot wait.
I watched every race last year live (either in person, or on tv. Yes. I know there's a large time flip. Im aware that some would call that "obsession")
My roommate hated race weekends. Id catch my practices, and qualifying on tape delay, and at "low" volume. But Races were live, and volume was ALWAYS turned up for the start. That noise….

The new layout in Bahrain looks awesome. Always found it to be power track, its good to see it become more a drivers track.

He does look rather androidish. Altho, the only "robot" I know of in motor sport, is Loeb, the French Rally Robot.
It will be a great season with 4 WDC title winners on track.

The first of the livery's is up. Good to see Schumi back.. should make for some kinda racing.. And with Ross at the helm, we may see a return to greatness.
Rumor has it Ferrari has ditched the all red, and gone to red and white, and no longer the bar code graphic on the rear. I hope thats not the case.
Hamilton and Button. Rosberg and Schumacher. [James May voice] The Germans [/James May voice] vs the British.. let the jokes begin.

Anyone else going to Montreal for the race this year? I caught last years Monaco gp. Montreal is a little closer (but MUCH less glamorous). Should be good.

Predictions? Ross and Bernie say Schumi.. I say if the car is what Mclaren claims it is, Lewis will give them a run for the money. Even with Fernando's 4 10th's he claims to bring…:high:

Schumacher To Replace Masa

schumi has nothing to loose.
He comes back, and wins, he'll be even more of a god in the industry.
He comes back and looses, he can atribute it to a change in car, no more ross brawn, a number of things.
He comes back and nothing happens, he's done an amazing thing to stand in for massa.
What we really need to look for is does he decide to pull the "schumi spear" when things dont go his way.. and knock a driver off..
But regardless. 4 World champs on track all at once.. its gonna be a hell of a season.

Dear Montreal-

Dear old Montreal should focus its attention on providing medical doctors, dealing with corruption, putting paint stripes on their roads, fixing the multitudes of car-wrecking potholes, educating their drivers not to be aggressive self-serving dumbfucks, erradicating smokers and removing ridiculous bylaws like $420 fines for not holding the handrail on the escalator in metro stations.

IMO, Montreal has more important priorities then racing cars in circles (and if you really want to drive in a circle (since their are pretty much no left turns allowed anywhere) just try to go from A to B and I can guarantee you'll be driving around in a circle at some point)

never seen an F1 race eh?
little more than a circle.

Dear Montreal-

We already went go-karting and that went well.
So Monaco is next step I think.

Gotta have the scratch to play in monte carlo.
The Sector Rocher is way cheaper, and the seats, provided you get there early, and i mean early, are pretty darned good.
Man, its a bucket list kinda thing. im beyond stoked that i have the opportunity to go. Cant wait for Le Mans, and another F1 Race. :rocker:

Dear Montreal-

my other moment of greatness was getting to talk to a engineer for toyota for a solid 20 min. answered any questions i had, went into a lot of the parts and stuff they bring along, and the testing they do mid season. The pit was kinda fun to walk around outside. Enzo's, spykers, lambo's, porsches, and your other "run of the mill" supercars were everywhere.

This was pretty cool tool. Actually have a piece of Hekki's car from his wreck…
