Here today..gone today

Finally my mtb rrived and after not riding since January 2009 Iwas exited and it felt awsome just to be putting my front wheel on. I had decided to ride to the church to watch the boks v the visiting British Lions, about 15km it felt great I left at 5am it was light and warm enough to just wear short bottom bib and my new Sabie shirt. Some of the hills gave methe burn but darn it felt good to be out there again. All went well until 500m from home my back derailergot pulled into my spokes while over shifting and ripped the hanger off and bent everything chain and derailer, lucky all spokes survived.
So no bike again until I chase down some spare cash to do some repairs.


  1. That Sucks! dude, sell your body or something but you gotta get riding again! how much will that set you back?

  2. about $100. I might get a tip tomorrow for a vertical cave tour. Tips are around $20...
