    Still suffering after Coccygectomy

    I broke my tailbone giving birth to my first child 3 years ago and that took a good six months to feel better again. At that time we didn't know I had broken it I thought it was just the pain that comes along with having a baby, but when i started feeling the bone move around I suspected it was a little more. Well six weeks ago I had my second child (a little baby girl) and low and behold I broke my tailbone again. This time I felt the pop and the doctor heard it. It kills me cause I just got a knew bike, so I tried getting a corticosteroid injection (they did it on monday) and it just hurts worse now than before. I'm hoping I just need to give it another day (aww who am I kidding). I've thought about having it removed as well but from the research I've done people often have just as much pain. So sorry to break the bad news but you might just have to see a pain specialist from here on out.

    Don't throw your used tire away

    very nice- I will have to steal that idea if I ever get a garage bathroom

    Don't throw your used tire away

    I don't have one at the moment - I'll have to post it later tonight.
  9. I had a great idea for a used knobby. So I took my used rear tire and spray painted it black then put two bolts in it hooked up a chain and put a cork board inside and now it is a bulletin board in my son's room and looks sweet and only cost 7 bucks. Maybe I'll post a pic later. I also thought you could find a clock kit and make an awesome clock for your garage. Maybe I'll get a little 50 tire and make a picture frame for my kid's dirt bike themed room. I finally got the pictures but they are from my crappy camera phone

    Hey guys, I have a similar post over in the thumpette forum, but I wanted a slightly different opinion over here. My husband wants me to get a rekluse on my 150 RB (he thinks that will make it the most perfect bike there is for me) and I wanted to get some ride reviews from those of you that have it.

    To rekluse or not to rekluse

    My husband does have the rekluse on his CRF 450R and I have ridden it with it installed, but only on a home made track. It makes that bike feel way more managable to me. But if I stalled his bike I'm a good three inches from touching my feet to the ground. The 150R seems to stall a little more than the 450 used to. Now don't get me wrong here I'm not an idiot when it comes to the clutch I rode my 230 for a year and rarely stalled it. But the 150R on the single tracks and rocky switchbacks we ride tends to be quite a bit more of a handful than my old trail bike. It's good to hear you guys say that you think calling it cheating is ridiculous, however it seems that my ideas are somewhat correct since many of the posters seem to think that the riders of rekluse bikes are somewhat deficient. I will most likely end up getting a rekluse just to keep up, since I am the only chick that rides a bike in my crowd and all the guys have grown up riding. But I am going to wait a little bit just to see how much I can learn between now and then.
  12. Renman's Wifey here: So I rode my first trail ride on my new CRF 150RB and it was the funnest ride I have ever been on. I feel like such a better rider on this bike than my old 230F. Now I did stall it like a million times but I could tackle much more difficult terrain than I ever could have handled on the 230. But here is the dilemma: My husband has the rekluse clutch on his bike and loves it. And although I did much better on this ride I did hold up the guys with all the stalling. So my hsband thinks I should definately get the rekluse. I kind of want to get better using my clutch before i give it a try. So what do you gals think. Should I get the rekluse and not look back or should I hold off and get used to the bike first? Also I feel a little like the rekluse might be cheating kinda and even if I get better the guys will just atribute my progress to the rekluse.- is this stupid or realistic?

    A bike for my wife

    Renman's wifey here: I started with no experience not even mountain bikes, and I am 5'4" and 105 lbs. I started on a CRF 230 and it was great but very heavy when you can't touch the ground well. So i dumped it a lot. I rode it for a year and just got my CRF 150RB a month ago- this bike is the perfect size for me. I can touch the ground much better and the bike is 70 pounds lighter than the 230. I never had a problem picking up the 230 but with the 150 I can usually save the bike before it falls to the ground so I don't have to pick it up. Now as far as riding I feel much less comfortable with the throttle control that the CRF 150R demands but hopefully that will come with time. Either way both bikes are great but if you have confidence in your wife think about the 150RB (not F).

    How long?

    I got my first bike last year and ride with my husband once every other week. I just moved up from my CRF 230 to a CRF 150R and I always have a death grip on the bars even on flat ground. But holy cow is it fun. That is why I ride, it is such a great feeling to conquer my fears and do something I never would have thought I could.

    Beginner's bikes con't...

    I was a complete newb last year and started on a CRF 230F. Just sold it for a CRF150R. The bike is a blast but I've got a lot of practice ahead of me to be able to ride it on the trails. Last time out I crashed it 5 times:bonk: , I was all bruised up but it never felt as bad as that beast of a 230 landing on me. And truthflly even the crashes were fun, I even landed on my feet once.
