^^^ Dammit, I knew I shoulda known who that was on that bike! Next time I’m stopping you to talk... What’s with the cushy fork? Gettin’ old? Pretty soon you’ll be needin’ a dropper post just to get your leg over the seat.

As a matter of fact 2 crashes in the last 1 1/2 years did make the rigid a bit painful at time even with the 29x3 tires, that and hit the 6-0 in a couple of months, so yeah kinda getting oldish :(

Edit: did we cross paths out there recently? What are you riding these days?

Yeah, going opposite directions with others near the bridge. Just recognized your bike color scheme in passing, no eye contact. I’m an old gray-goateed guy on a silver (clear anodized) Giant Trance.
