OK...I copied this from another blog site who got it from the net somewhere where it is making the rounds. Figured I would have at it too.
If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?
Well, it would be Ti so it would outlast even the mighty cockroach in case of WWIII. Simple, so 1x9 drivetrain with a RockShox Reba up front and something like a Racer X rear design. Dead easy to work on, enough for the whole world of riding.
Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped are you working toward it would be? If not, getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?
Well, my dreams keep changing with time, but I have a really amazing ride right now in the Lenz. It certainly is worthy of being a dream bike, the trick is in being content. There will always be something to drool over, something new and shiny that promises to be the answer to the dream. It is vanity, mostly.
If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?
Well, the Lower Loop to town in Crested Butte would do nicely. But, I can picture a route that winds through a large park area, mixes some singletrack with bike path, and winds near a lake or river. That would be fine, but it is only in my mind...so far.
What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to do for the rest of her / his life?
Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrowminded?
Mountain. I have a road bike and it languishes. I am narrowminded when it comes to fun and limited time. Mtn = funX2
Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.
No. reee-come-bent. Sounds like a genetic disorder. "Eeuuh...you have Recumbent Gene Syndrome....grodie!"
Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?
Never. I think Tris are fabulous except for the running and the swimming. Nearly a perfect sport.
Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?
Say goodbye to Ben and Jerry.
What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.
My question would be: "Is cycling the most important thing to you?" The answer? It should not be. After all, it is just a bike. If bikes left the earth, we would be a little poorer for it. Knowing the Creator of all things and what He wants for us....I call that at the top of the list.
You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?
Take this picture (as a matter of fact, I did just that)
"Please don't let me die."
