Re: 26" Cal Custom Cruisers and Strandies...ONLY!

That was the toughest one yet, near 100 degree temps took their toll as we reached the top of the big climb near noon time.

Re: 26" Cal Custom Cruisers and Strandies...ONLY!

Wheres pics we bailed 1/2 mile from top of Nike tower do to heat over exposer. Followed the brew master down single track I was on 1981 sidewinder with not great brakes hit a square edge rain rutt went over the bars blew out 4 spoke taco my wheel broke derailer and had to walk it out 3 miles to nearest store in 100 deg heat. It was hot hot hot and the hill climbs tore me up my hats off to the burly riders who finished. I feel defeated.

Only to rise up again stronger the next time. Klunking ain't easy they say. Don't feel bad, a lot of people quit.

Just because I'm to big to ride it doesn't mean I'm not going to build it or buy it.

Love this thread. I finally got around to stripping and painting my late 80's Worksman Newsboy that I got of CL a few years back.http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/218701/newsboy5d7fd76263.jpg
