Sunset at San Marcos Purgatory creek - Cannondale F4

I owned my bike for over a year and I have enjoyed the trails. Had a few ‘incidents’ which landed me in the E.R., from a badly discloated elbow that swelled up to the size of a grapefruit and almost slicing off my finger, but it is a hobby and adventure that I enjoyed.

I have been able to pack my bike and taken it to Austin, Houston, Huntsville, San Marcos for hours of fun and pain. I doubt I would have been able to fit a 29er (meaning 29 inch wheel as opposed to a 26 inch wheel) in my car. Learned more things about fixing my bike, other than the BMX years, physical limits and thinking 3x before taking that leap of faith as if I was 17 yrs old.

Throughout the last twelve months, I have spent more money on the bike than the purchase price. Some were ‘enhancements’, some were done to replace parts that broke/worn out.
