"So, now, what you're telling me......
.....is that if I ride my mountain bike, it could help my road riding too?"
"Yeah, it could."
"And vice versa???"
"Uh, yeah. I think so."
"How do ya know?"
"Uh, hmmm. Well, there's these two guys, see. And they're both Chicotypes. Last I heard, they're both mountain bike Pros. But, for some odd crazy reason, they have this tendency to ride road bikes real fast too. Like, real fast. 'Specially up vertical roads."
"Hmmm. Well, that pretty much says it all. I'm convinced. Think I'll get me a mountain bike."

I'm noticing a trend here.
And not sure if you noticed in the pic above - from here - but that winning bike is just hella nice! Seems like I've seen one of those somewhere before too. Like, hmmmm, in a dream or something.
Now, I need to replace that rear tire on the good old mountain bike sitting here. We haven't connected in a few - and the last time we did, I pretty much punched a nice size hole in the tire on North Rim. And seein's how I'm gonna Guinea Pig that bike for the next few months, it's about to get thoroughly abused.
