Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Monster Cross - Meme's GT Tempest

Meme has a problem. He loves bicycles, he loves GTs. Last week he bought a 1995 (?) GT Tempest. Its a well built green 7001 series aluminum frame and I'm not sure of the group.

We decided to make it a monster cross frankenbike. We swapped out the straight bars for drops and will make use of Kevin's old Deore XT cranks. If it was up to me, I throw on some Paul V Brakes, Thompson Seat Post and Stem. I'd go SS, with WI Cranks and Eno Rear hub. OR, maybe a 1 X 9 with bar end shifters!
