    Trampoline

    We’ve had a Walmart 12-footer in the backyard for 5 years and it’s still going strong. The safety net is getting a little tattered but no other real signs of wear. Of course, now that I opened my mouth, the next time I get on it, I’ll go straight through the uv cooked mat.

    Coronavirus

    Maybe I’m the idiot, but I think I’d be sufficiently motivated by shame to clean human shit off my bike before giving it over to someone for service.

    New-ish

    Thanks all! It seems there are quite a few spots to check out that aren’t too far off. I’ll definitely be looking into these.

    turning an old hardtail 29er into a gravel(ish) bike...thoughts?

    I dig it. If it can be repurposed and is getting more use than it otherwise would, I call it a win.

    New-ish

    Hey all, I've been registered for awhile, bought some stuff, sold some stuff, but rarely (never) post. That said, I think it's about time I break out of my comfort zone and post an introduction. I recently moved to central Hunterdon and have no idea where to mountain bike yet. I used to hit...

    I’ve potentially got someone coming Sunday morning to size it up for his son. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks.

    2017 Scott Spark 750 27.5 size Medium $1000

    Testing the waters here on a nice, gently used, full suspension xc bike in good shape. Stock 750 level build with aluminum frame and Syncros wheels, dropper, bars, stem, etc. It was originally a 2x10 shimano xt, but I installed Eagle gx drivetrain with Sunrace 11x50 rear cassette. I removed...

    Free 24” girl’s bike

    Thanks! I seem to tinker on bikes, bike storage, and motorbikes more than I ride them these days.

    Free 24” girl’s bike

    I don’t know if this should go here or in the pay it forward section, but my daughter moved up to a 26” that I got from a nice gentleman on this very forum and we’re ready to donate her old bike. It’s heavy but everything works and it’s in good shape. It’s a 1x7 grip shift drivetrain with QR...

    Diamondback Haanjo EXP Carbon Disc 650b $1300

    I was going with the time tested jeans sizing approach where 30 is too short and 32 is too long. However, in the interest of being thorough i measured around 32” and can throw in a gently used tape measure for whoever buys this.

    Diamondback Haanjo EXP Carbon Disc 650b $1300

    I suppose I should have mentioned, I’m just shy of 5’10” on a good day with 31-ish” inseam and it fits me pretty well. If I remember correctly, this was the middle of the three size offerings. I remember there being some internet discussion that these run somewhat larger than what you’d expect...
