I have 3 hobbies that my money gets used on, biking, kayaking and my Spyder. I got a job in a bike shop as a wrench to help support one of them. I want a new boat, but I also want to dry sump my car. What to do, what to do.... I live in the mountains next to Pisgah National Forest, close to a river, a few lakes, and lots of curvy tight mountain roads.
I don't do the road bike thing. That scares me. But I do have a gravel/adventure bike that I'll ride on backroads, gravel and light trail. For the trails I have a Specialized Stumpjumper carbon long travel. I also have 7-9 other misc bikes, but they only get brought out on special occasions. @Gordon Nichols I still have a 1989 Trek 950. It's on my trainer. I'd probably die if I rode it on the trails around here, but it was my adventure bike for most of it's life.
To add some transaxle content. Like I said, I live in the mountains so I need a tighter gearset. I hardly ever use 4th and I don't care to ever drive this car on a highway. All I know is it has a 3.44 ring and pinion. So when Danny moves on down here, he'll help me switch them out. Bwahahahaha.
