My Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc 2006, taking a well earned break on the Pilgrim's Way near Charing Kent England.

For any MTB types who stumble on this, it now has DMR V8 pedals, and Specialized Resolution Tyres.

It needs better forks, the RST Gila ones on there at the moment bounce like bers on rutted tracks I think I shall get some Rockshox Tora replacements soon, also the little cable operated Shimano Discs on there are having trouble stopping 14.5 stone on downhill bits, I feel some Avid Juicies coming on.

Other than that I've enjoyed the first 500 miles I've done on it this year, and would recommend this model as a good Road and Cross-country trail bike, though for me the 21" frame and naff forks make it not quite agile enough for anything more extreme.............a good starting point for those of us rediscovering riding, after technology has moved on so much.

And sorry it's out of focus, but I was partially shagged out!

6th Annual BTR Criterium

6th Annual BTR Criterium

6th Annual BTR Criterium on WMU's Technology Campus.

Yes, Kalamazoo does have roads, and road bike racing. This was my first time attending a bicycle race. Spectators are few and I was free to wander the course at will.

I was shooting for the Kalamazoo Valley Museum documentary project, so main goal was to get the race in the context of Kalamazoo - to show where it was, to include event signs and recognizable landmarks.

I also found out that my equipment is woefully inadequate for shooting such events, so I'll just have to save my pennies and try to get some really fast glass for next time.

So that is why you don't see many tightly framed shots of the racers.

I stayed for two races; the women's Category 3 and 4 (I believe) and the men's Category 5. Category 5 is for people just starting out, which is why not everyone in the pelaton looks the skinny bike-racer stereo-type.
