0riding a rigid for the first timee
« on: July 08, 2012, 05:05:43 PM »
so i was at boyette and i met up with a couple friends to go riding. one ofthem was riding a REDLINE MONCOG and i thought it might be fun to ride it for a little...

holy * was i wrong... while riding a trail like lochness was relatively easy and more fun, it was a completely different story when i rode a trail like the abyss. rough, bumpy x2, and definitely makes you more aware of your surroundings.

 all in all it was a good expirience because i now know that i will never ever ride a rigid.

thank you

Flaccid bikes are lame.  Go rigid!

Another rider "taps out" when challenging the rigid! She cannot be tamed!
