My skin has never been so smooth...

That is right, after two "muddy" week-ends I am sure both my skin and my bike have never been smoother LOL. I must admit I am starting to think if I should wait for better weather before going back on the trails again. Too many expenses with maintenance are making me consider the possibility of staying home and pedal on the spinning bike only.

This was before last Saturday night ride under a big storm. As you can all imagine I have not taken any photos myself. Check out more pictures HERE.

I have rode more than 100km (60 miles) during the last couple weekends and most of them on very muddy conditions. My bike`s transmission is starting to cry for help and I will have to change the brake pads after less than 500km...


Photo by Jorgex, I am the one with the bright orange jacket in the middle of the peloton.

I love mountain biking but I will try to stay on the roads as much I can during this next rainy weeks. At least my bicycle will thank me, that`s for sure.

@ Aerrox - Hi there, if you really like to ride under rainy and muddy conditions I would recommend you some hubs with sealed bearings which will resist better to the water. But do not fool yourself because every hub will need some kind of maintenance after this kind of use :/

@ Jorgex - LOL, I knew you would come here and that you would also love the link so that´s why I didn`t ask to use that picture :P
BTW, have you take care of your hubs after last Sunday? :D
