Very impressive! My brother runs cross country... I personally am not a runner

Studying for my HAM test. I'm at 96% of the information, with 86% right out of 133 currently.

BMI is NOT FMS!!!!!

BMI and RCDP are the exact same, but with different models available:

Yeah. There is nothing like the stiffness of a roadbike, but there is also nothing like the floating feeling even over huge bumps of a bike with 8" of front and rear suspension travel

Awesome! It's actually pretty easy to do, and it's fun!

Which plane were you flying when that photo was taken?
