    (Singlespeed) The answer is "both." There is a separate category for s.s. (one men, one women), but some people choose to race in the normal cats with a s.s. bike anyway... usually some of the strongest folks. And no, that mud tears up drivetrains regularly. My wife's, for example... just...

    Yesterday was the last 'cross race of this season, so I won't be bombarding you with boring race pics anymore. :) And I shot plenty of video again, but this time I made one last push for some stills that I would like...

    Fuji XE3 stuck in MF

    Looks like I'll have to send it in for service. I was working a bike race, shooting mostly video, and switched between MF and AF via the usual front switch. Switching it into AF again, it kept showing the peaking highlights of manual focus. Sure enough, it wasn't responsive. Only way I can get...

    Well, my project of getting more into video is progressing. I use the race days to try to shoot both still and video, and it works, though I get fewer shots overall (of course) than Used to. But I get enough. And when I'm done, I get to compile videos for the team, which they seem to love. Some...

    I used to have a leather Brooks I loved, but eventually it stretched beyond what the nose bolt adjuster could tighten and compensate for, and it became a hammock. Since then, I like stock Brompton (folding bike) saddles, or the WTB Volt a ton.

    And people who ride often in those environments lose perspective on what it's like for people not acclimated to those dangerous environments.

    Hope it's a good experience. I only now the old 3 speed hubs, and my wife's front hub on her Peugot, which is an internal brake and dynamo. So far it hasn't failed in a ton of miles, but the braking has always sucked. Shimano coaster rear hub does the bulk of braking.
