That is exactly what I’ll be doing when I get my hands on GTA:SA
However I do not particulary feel like driving or cycling in NY. I think I would even fear walking. Really, too many people. And too many cars. Whats wrong with the subway or the bus? Or cycling? And the cameraman must be some sort of wizard to be able to cram trough that 1dm gap between the bus
And SUV-limousines are just wrong!
you cyclists are adrenalin junkies…its took me so long to find him i don’t want a trip to NY to do him in…those people can’t drive…i sent him a link to this thread maybe he will put up a pic of his bike… its a Specialized …? what ever that is…i just think its pretty…its blue and white
Both custom made at the local bike shop here the MTB sports Shimano Deore Group and a Rockshox Pilot SL (Air ) fork, all other bits Ritchey apart from the clickies Shimano.
The Racing Bike has a Carbon Fork, Complete Shimano Ultegra Group and Shimano MTB Clickies
Now had the MTB since August 2003 and have done around 5,000 KM on it the Racing Bike has done around 1,400 since September last year all in since end of July 2003 when i came out of rehab after a Heart Attack ive done around 7,500KM on 3 different Bikes since before i got these two i had a ATB as well.
Hi drpino, there not bad not to expensive but Air assisted what i would really like to add to the MTB are the Magura HS33 Hydraulic rim Brakes and a decent lockable Fork ( just the thing for going up hills ).
The biggest shock i got was going from MTB to Racing Bike its amazing the difference but there is a huge one, for long distances there is no beating the Racing Bike. Ive actually managed on the flat to get it upto 50KMH what i now want is a really steep hill so i can go even faster .
Umm, Baby, I have ridden in NY, LA, Chicago and a lot of other cities. I LOVE IT. The id10ts in their cars, the exhaust, the potholes and hacks. It is the most amazing of challenges. When you can work as a bike messanger, you know you can RIDE.
Anyway, I noticed that DrPino is topping out in the mid 60s, that is really good. I love the speed of the Road Race bikes and the Downhill bikes. I have wrecked bikes running around 100kph. That hurts so much, but it is such a RUSH! Even when you know you are coming off the bike and your next stop is going to be the ER and then Physical Rehab, LOL. I have a few pics of my Spec and I am going to link them here.
These were taken around xmas, after I got my new FSA Carbon bars, my race saddle and some new Time ATACs pedals, those are the only ones I will ride. This is my grandmother’s house. My house doesn’t look anything like that.
Yup Here I am, been spending a lot of time on my writing. I have a book due at the end of the year.
Thanks, glad you like the bike. I love her.
I never worked as a messanger, but I did hang out with a bunch when I could get home. I would ride with them to stay sharp. I raced Road, Downhill and X-Country. Can’t race anymore, the knees won’t take the abuse of the get-offs. I ALWAYS wreck in the most spectacular ways. I have even borken Carbon Frames.
I miss it and I am just now starting to train a little again. Took the better part of two years off and didn’t ride hard. I was only doing metric centries during that time and those were rare. I am looking forward to this season though. Get my legs and my lungs back.
You keep riding and you can see 100k on the right bike. It’s not that hard if you ride a lot. A little hill and you tuck down and pound HELL outta your big ring. You’ll get there. Let me tell you the first time you draft a car, then swingout and pass that car. Wow, you won’t ever forget it.
