Jared's Bio

I used to snowboard, skateboard, wakeboard, etc. but I had a bad car accident in '03 so I can't do all of that anymore...

Spring '08 I took a massive trip w/ some friends through some western natl.parks. We covered 6,000+ miles in 14 days and saw a dozen or so Natl. Parks. Highlights were Zion, Crater Lake, Yosemite, hiking through Bridges National Park, sleeping under the stars @ Lake Powell and biking @ Moab... Utah has some of the coolest places I've ever been...behind Nepal maybe.

This photo is from a snowmobile trip in the Black Hills w/ my wife and some friends, March'09.

No, and you don't want this fork anyways, the light weight comes at a major price. One pretty good wreck and this fork was done and if you get the remote lockout that's guaranteed to break in a weak crash, $100+ for a new one also.

A year has gone by and I've damaged another helmet. Someone mentioned to me that Giro does have a policy that they may replace the helmet. Here's what it says and Becky I'm sorry I accidentally hit your thumbs down button when I wasn't paying attention. (dumb trackpad) the link for this is: http://www.giro.com/us_en/customer-service/cycling-helmet-faqs-2/

I ordered 2 of these tires the other day for the front of my bikes, as it seems most reviewers say that's where you should run these.
And I just ordered 2 Moto Raptor Race (2.24 in.) tires as well, as I wanna get some new tires on front and back on both bikes.
Is it a bad idea to stick these on the back and the Raptors up front? I'm just concerned about putting either tire on back since most reviewers like both these tires up front.

new watch
4 5

I just got this for my birthday and I'm excited to get out and use it. After reading through the manual I think there's a pretty steep learning curve with this watch. But the initial set up of time/day/HR was pretty simple. Used it biking, it works great.

I'll see what it's like the next couple months and report back later. I like all the Alti/Baro/HR/Compass options, also why I bought this watch. Hopefully it won't be to difficult to get it all down.

I am super happy with this saddle's comfort and pain reducing on my backside... but the first thing I noticed when this saddle arrived was that 2 staples holding the leather attached to the bottom of the seat were already close to coming out.

A couple weeks later and I've already lost one and the other is close to falling out as well. At least I got it for $32 off Chainlove. It's a super comfortable saddle and I'm hoping the loss of these staples won't affect that.

I just wrecked really hard this past Labor day weekend and my 3 yr old Hex stood up to the beating I gave it with out much impact on my head. It is cracked now so I'm gonna be getting a new one today, thanks for the great price on a great helmet. I attached a pic of my helmet after the crash, it was a doozy.

that's how helmets work, they crack in...

that's how helmets work, they crack in order to disperse the energy to different areas of the helmet... you gotta replace it, I'm sure no helmet company offers a no-crack guarantee since that's how they are designed to work.
I just recently cracked my helmet too & I wouldn't even begin to think about the company replacing it, it did what it was suppose to do... save my already beat up head.

I just got these and I'm a bit disappointed at the light color of the lenses, I was hoping for something a bit darker when I ordered a brown gradient, it should be called a light brown to clear gradient. They also tend to be narrow but other than that they seem really cool. I'll check back after using them in the sun a bit.
