A friend asked me to help him find a brokeback mountain bike today. It was getting close to getting dark and I wasn’t planning on heading home until late afternoon so I decided to take him. I knew that the trails weren’t very good so I wanted to make sure I got something that would be faster to get down the mountain. I also wanted to make sure I got something that didn’t weigh a lot.
He starts talking and I let him go on without interruption. After about an hour we arrived at the spot where the trail head was. I noticed that there was some rust on some of the parts. When I asked why it was there I learned that it was from a previous storm. I’m sure it was nothing too severe but it was definitely in the way.
We got back on the trail and I started to do some inspecting. As I was looking over the parts I noticed that there were some dents on the frames. My friend was really glad that he had brought his mountain bike.
I asked him what type bike did he want. He said a mountain bike that was made for riding on the trails. I asked him if he wanted to just ride it or he’d like to repair it and then use it again. He said he’d like to repair it and also build another one.
I asked him if he had a place to get parts. I noticed that he was wearing work boots so I asked if he would be willing to wear knee pads. He said he would if it would mean that he could get home earlier. Sure I’ll add that to his list. I saw that he had some old tubes lying around too so I bought those too.
Once he got on his bike he was really happy. The day was hot and he couldn’t stand the sun. He was riding alone so he didn’t have anyone to help. The ride was nice and easy. After the ride he took some time and laid down on a rock and had a drink. He said that he felt refreshed and really good.
He said he was planning on going out again on a Saturday but didn’t know if he would like to go mountain biking or hiking. I told him that I would definitely try both. He actually liked hiking a lot more but he said that he was having trouble trying to get the bike to move downhill. He had a few problems with the shifting but at the end of the day it worked out really well.
I think he may try riding on a Sunday as well. I think he would really enjoy it too. If you are thinking about getting a broken back and don’t know what to do, don’t worry. There are many things you can do to prevent it from happening in the future. You just need to find out what those things are and then follow them.
A lot of people like to try to lift something so that they can pedal faster and farther. For instance, my husband has a friend who lifts logs. He would like to try it sometime but is unsure if it would like it. I would like to see him try it but am not too sure. It would be much easier for me to just tell him not to do it. Besides, it’s just a hill.
Another thing that some people do is to go mountain climbing. Even if it’s for a day, there’s no way that you’ll ever feel like you’ve really gotten anywhere. Even if you get to the top you’ll probably just feel tired and would like to rest. So it doesn’t make much sense to do that.
I would like to see someone else do it but he doesn’t seem all that keen on it. If he ever decided to go mountain biking with me again, I’d like to know what I was doing wrong. Did I fall off? Did I try something wrong? Did I think it would be easy? All these questions would make it much easier for me to accept his decision not to mountain bike.
I guess I have to make the same decision with a mountain bike as I would with anything else. It’s all a matter of opinion. Some people will love them while others will hate them. It all depends on your lifestyle. If you like to ski or at least like to take long walks in the woods, then a mountain bike would probably be something you’d like.
