What do you need one of those for? Don't you know that big wheels are all the rage now. We'll all be out pedalling the front wheel like we did when we were 3 years old.


Anyway, nice bike!

Nice Mojo!  But you really should have gotten a rigid single speed 29'r  ;)

That thing is way to nice to ride. Just mount it on your car and drive around the parking lot at Alafia.
I'm lusting over your bike.

LOL, I've thought about that.  Like any kid with a new toy, I want to show it off.  I'll probably take it to Carter Road this afternoon for a "shakedown" ride.  But then again, I may just drive around town with it on the back of the car.  ;)

Thanks for the compliments.   ;D

So, I took my new toy out today and rode it at Carter Road.  Did not ride Sneaky Snake, Big Mama's House, the fingers, The Beast, or The Moe.  Yeah, yeah, I know...easy ride.  I was being easy, just wanted to get a feel for the new girl.  ;)

All I have to say is...HOLY SH**!!  This bike is friggen awesome...IMHO of course.  First impression I had on it was that it's a much more forgiving bike than what I had been riding.  I found myself NOT having to muscle it around.  It's more of a finesse bike.  It rode like a dream and I was able to make a lot of things so much easier than before.  Was also able to clean the paver climb into roller coaster for the very first time...EVER.   ;D

Of course it feels different under me.  And sounds different as well.  It will take some getting used to, but I love it.  Also got some more pics.

Crap, I'm in trouble aren't I?  Just because I'm in love with my new bike and experienced multiple orgasms while riding at Carter today doesn't mean I'll be able to keep up with the "Cannondale Racers."  ;)

Yeah Gregg, I've been riding a Motobecane for almost 2 years now.  And I've heard all of the negatives about it already.  Other than a rear shock issue, I didn't have any major problems out of it.  But, it did get me involved in the sport and out riding every weekend.  I think that's the most important thing.

Sad thing is, I did make a statement one time along the lines of, "I can't see spending THAT kind of money on a bike when my cheap bike does all that I want it to."  Guess I should retract that now, since I did spend THAT kind of money on my Mojo.  :o

Racers! I'm the slowfatguy, and since I'm out front we can't possibly be going that fast! Heck we all ride lefties, can't possibly clean Sandpine on one of these funny forks, right? ;D

When you wheelie with a lefty does your bike fall over to the heavy side? ;D
