I'm not even sure I want one! I guess could be fun on gated-off logging roads, but no more single-track for me on a MTB... too much risk of head injury.

Sounds like our situation is similar. Short story, bought a Trek late 80's, broke the frame in Moab, and decided to go down a frame size with the warranty replacement, which was nice at the time for some of the stupid downhills we were doing ('nad clearance!) but as you say, now that I've banked a ton of miles on a bike that FITS me, this old thing is basically FUBAR... I think the glaring thing to do first is a seatpost with more setback. I took it for a casual spin this afternoon and could instantly tell, this thing wants to [bleep] up my knees, haha...

HiredGun, yeah, I wrote that on my pedal wrench many years ago! smile These aren't factory pedals, in fact I put them on there.... in the 90's..... wish I'd put some grease on the threads, though.


I have SPD's on my Roubaix and got MTB shoes with the thought that I'd add SPDs to the MTB too.

Somewhere I have a set of platform pedals with an embedded SPD cleat. I want to put them on so I can use it with regular shoes with the kids or on trails. We have a local Army Corps of Engineers lake with 25 miles or so of trails.

I need to pick something else for pedals and shoes for the Roubaix, though. Haven't really delved into that yet.

Pop-up storms yesterday kept me inside, so I did 20 miles on the trainer. Boring, but useful.

I like the Speedplay pedals a lot. If you want to try a pair to see if you like them, I have a spare set I could send you to try out. You'd still have to get the SP cleats for your shoes of course but at least your cost to just try them would be minimal.

Wow, that's very cool of you to offer. Perhaps after hunting season....the SPD's got me this far, they'll get me a bit more, lol.

Spare time and money has been focused on elk. My new Mystery Ranch pack arrived today, so I loaded it up to 50lbs or so and did 5.3 miles up and down a mountain trail here locally.....climb up was 980'. A good half of the distance to the top was fairly flat, so there were some ball-buster slopes. Pack felt good.....legs were feeling it, but was on the bike Monday and Tuesday and then hiking today. Should rest tomorrow, but I'll probably run or ride, because Friday looks like we're gonna get slammed with t-storms and I won't be able to get outside, so I'll make hay while the sun shines, or something like that.

Now that I think about it I also have some..... I think Look Keo's? You could try those as well. I prefer the SP's.

I'm buried in work right now. Gotta make some time to get out and hike/ride. Wife just got back from her big week long pack trip in NoCal so I'm exercising vicariously through her stories. smile

She's fired up for more so we are plotting a pack in to the Eagle Caps in NE Oregon in a week or so.

good deal- was making me a little nervous laugh



Tiny Elvis and I got in a nice 3 miles on the trail before the sun came out- a very pleasant 55 degrees, sad that it'll climb into the 90's again

Starting to accumulate some smoke in the valley- two fires pretty close, one west, one north

Phew! you were making me nervous laugh

5.5 miles on the trails, just shy of 1000'- this a nice loop, about 2 miles of climbing out the gate, a mile or so fairly level, a tough 3/4 mile of steep downhill quad busting and a mile or so of gentle descent to finish

this heat wave won't quit, so my runs are still pre- sunrise

We are planning a backpack into the Eagle Caps in NE Oregon (getting towards Hells Canyon for reference) in a week or so, so I'll need to do some hiking prior. Just been buried fixturing up and doing the other necessary legwork to get rolling with this new customer... and to bring it around to exercise I can get pretty singular-minded when I'm obsessing about something. smile

my grandson is coming to stay for a week pretty soon, we are planning a couple day trip into the backcountry; we've done this the last three years starting when he was five- nothing too ambitious, but we always manage to get into some nice country and have some down time for fishing, rock climbing and general goofing off smile

Mtwarden, what app are you using on your phone for tracking mileage and elevation? I hiked mt isolation and Washington in NH on Sunday 15 miles with 6,800 ft elevation gain. Hope to put up similar numbers this sunday. I wish I had to work less and could hike more! The pictures of out west kill me i would have to hike to the top of everything.
