    See.

     

    Someday I need one of those, too.  First I need a regular mountain bike ('cause my 11 year old has taken over my 1-size-too-small-for-me mountain bike).

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

    an amazing likeness

      Well...at least you care enough to notice. Indiffernce is a killer.

      I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

          Yeah, he realized after the fact that he's going to have to totally redo all the cables...but he says it was totally worth it! Tongue It was hilarious eavesdropping on the conversations on the beach as he was riding around out there.  People were all "WTF, there's a BIKE IN the lake!"  Then people were stopping to ask him about it.

              Ha, I was wondering how long it would take for someone to jump on that. Big grin

              Am I doing this right?

                That looks like a ton of fun.  

                 

                My kind of weird.

                No excuses....

                  I got to ride one of those bikes once this Winter...unfortunately there was hardly any snow.  But it floated right over the snow and sand we encountered.  Not fast, but really fun and stable.

                    I used to mountain bike a lot when I was a kid. We built a ramp into a little pond back in the woods where we used to ride, and in the summer we would jump our bikes into the pond. The water would catch the wheels, slow the bike down pretty suddenly, and you could do a flip over the handlebars. Not the same thing, but this reminded me of that.

                      Hmmm...I should suggest the ramp possibility to DH.  There is a pier at that beach.  DS thinks his dad should just ride off the pier.  The bike floats, so it's not like he'd lose it at the bottom of Lake MI! Big grin

                        After spending too much time searching for our bikes at the bottom of a muddy creek that we jumped them into as kids, we started putting life jackets on them.  Worked pretty good.

                          DS actually used DH's childhood bike until he outgrew it.  I have no doubts that that thing would sink like a rock.  I don't think the tubes on that thing were even hollow steel...they felt like steel filled with concrete.  And the wheels were tanks, too.

                            That does look like fun.  Maybe a cross-training workout?  I did the same thing as Jeff as a kid.  The ramp idea looked a lot cooler than what it ended up being.  That's life....

                            So bittersweet,
                            This tragedy
                            Won't ask for absolution;
                            This melody,
                            Inside of me,
                            Still searches for solution.
                            A twist of faith,
                            A change of heart
                            Cures my infatuation.
                            A broken heart, 
                            Provides the spark
                            For my determination.

                              You are married to a weirdo, but mostly it just made me wish I lived near a beach right now.

                                The beach is pretty damned nice.  The water was near 80, last night...which felt good, since the air temps were at least 15 degrees warmer, even near sunset.
