Snake encounters of the Appin kind

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Buck and I were riding in Appin on Sunday. I was heading up this section of fast switchback singletrack and I've come across a snake on the trail! Not sure what it was (black/grey, 1m long, 5cm diamter) but I pretty much spooked it and it shot off to the left. I was pinning it at the time and took a while to haul up after I spooked it, and it spooked me. I screamed out to Buck SNAKE!! who also pulled up a safe distance behind me with no issue.

Wheel rebuild - any experience and opinion?


I was told at the LBS that if I wanted to do something good for my bike, I should get the wheels rebuild.
My first thought was that I had spent a small fortune on the bike - why should I rebuild the wheels, are they no good?

1- I would like to know what are the reasons? Are the factory wheels so much worse than hand build wheels?

2- If you had your wheels rebuild, did you do that yourself or with which bike shop did you have a good experience? And how much should it cost?

I have DT Swiss 420SL (Specialized Customs).

Beijing Closing Ceremony - One Wheeled Sit In Bikes?

Anyone see them? How'd they work? They'd be great for mountain biking, roll up and over anything - I think, have I got the physics right?
