#3255538 Any Mountain bikers?

Posted by Salvo on Today, 04:30 PM

I mountain bike regularly, but nothing too hardcore. Standard cross country stuff with a mix of flow and tech, no downhill or poo that will kill me...


Fat bikes are awesome and catching on quite quickly out in the Rockies. I've been considering getting one because of the snow and longer winters out here, but my money is being diverted elsewhere at the moment. However, I have shopped at BikesDirect before and have nothing but good things to say about them, so if I was in the market for one, I would definitely consider one of their Motobecane models.


While they were designed for the snow/sand, you can literally use them for any type of trail. They'll roll over anything.

I have no ill will towards him if he's willing to fix his problems.

Posted by Salvo on 27 January 2015 - 03:24 PM

He can be here for another 10 years and people will still be questioning whether or not he's a franchise QB.

#3214516 Need new camera

Posted by Salvo on 20 January 2015 - 12:51 PM

Need more info about what you want to make a specific choice.


Does size matter? (of course it does...) If you want something small, go with what Philly suggested. You'll lose a little bit in image quality, but it's a hell of a lot easier to carry around than a standard DSLR with a heavy-ass lens.


What do you typically take pictures of? Landscapes, people, family, sports, etc...This is typically where the lens comes in if you want to get real specific and care about the quality of picture.


If none of that really matters and just want something that's good all around, go with CWG's suggestion. Even though I use a Canon, I'm no fanboy. Nikon makes a quality camera and you'll do just fine with it. The fact that it comes with two lenses makes that deal much better and you can always upgrade later on. The 18-55 mm lens is for wider images while the 55-200 mm is the zoom lens. They're not as "fast" as something Jeremy would use in his pictures (corresponding to the f/ stop number...lower the number, the "faster")....but as CWG shows, it's more than sufficient if you're looking for some sporty shots.

#3213829 Don't complain about Richardson when Nascar does this

Posted by Salvo on 19 January 2015 - 08:01 PM

I'm a big racing fan, and NASCAR barely qualifies as a motorsport anymore.


Conceptually, it wouldn't be too hard to fix and have it become a respectable motorsport again, but it's status quo for the France family. They still think it's the Hollywood phonies they need to cater to when they've completely forgotten their Southern contingent.


It can crash and burn for all I care...

When it comes to defense, I will trust Rivera's judgement in picking McD's successor.
