Hurt my back, no ride, got bored and built up a bike

Posted by RL Policar On January - 4 - 2014

Yep that’s how my Saturday turned out. So without boring you with some lame details, here’s some pictures. But first, let me tell you about my Bro-Date with Art Aguilar. He’s so dreamy! We had some tacos by the beach.

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about what I did. So ya, I hurt my back moving stuff the night before and I woke up with my back still aching. Oh sorry, I forgot that I said I’d spare the details, oh well. So let’s get to it. Since I wasn’t riding, I decided to spend some time in the garage. Pulled out the Retired Burt Reynolds. I had some parts laying around I figured, I’d build him back up again.

First thing to deal with was to remove the Plasti Dip that I put on a few months ago.

That whole process took me about an hour. Crazy how long it took. Actually I’m so A.D.D or ADHD…not quite sure which, but one of those, that I decided to leave some of it on the hard to reach places like the drop outs, and other nooks and crannies that the plastidip got into.

One of the things I like to do while working on my bikes is to smoke cigars. I didn’t feel like using up one of my premium ones, so I opted for a “daily smoke” cigar. I realized that a bike frame makes for a great cigar tender.

The Plasti Dip did a great job in preserving the paint on the frame.

Yep this is the same 1×10 drive train that came off the the Titus Rockstar. I didn’t want it to just sit there and gather dust.

Here’s how it looks now with the 1×10 and honestly, it looks like how it did before I dipped the bike.

For the kids that like to weigh everything, here’s the weight of Burt Reynolds. 25ish pounds.

Beads and Bikes?

Posted by RL Policar On June - 5 - 2012

Do you guys remember Spoke Beads? For the most part kids would be the ones sporting these beads on their bikes. But it got me thinking, this might be a great idea in helping people hear you on the trail. Just think about it, when you are on the trail, and you come up behind another rider, usually you’ll say “on your left” or ring your bell right? What if you installed beads on your bike to help generate noise while riding? Not only will this allow people to hear you, but shoot, it could even scare away some big animals that may be lurking near by.

Another thing to consider with beads is that you can customize the colors to match your bike. For example, if you have a red and black bike with black wheels, then adding red beads would put some flare to it. You can even string the beads onto your saddle or zippers to ad that extra customized look.

Check out this photo below of the “Bead Bike.” I can’t even imagine how many beads he used. My favorite part about this bike is the detail he put into it. Just look at the center, “The Bead Bike.” Heck I’m not even sure how he did all that and how long it must have taken him. All I know is, beads can certainly make your bike look unique. I know it’s not for everyone, but it sure is different, and if being different is your thing…then try beads!

Memorial Day Weekend

Posted by RL Policar On May - 29 - 2012

I hope you all had a great weekend. I know we did. But before we go on with our ride report, I would like to take the time to thank all the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country to protect our freedom. All of us at MtnBikeRiders.com thank you for everything you have done.

If I may, I’d like to WARN everyone that this following article is rich in photo content. So if you’ve got dial up…not sure why you would since WiFi is readily available through your neighbors…then you better grab a sandwich and a cold beer because it will take some time to load up all the pics from this weekend.

It’s the weekend…the trails are calling your name

Posted by RL Policar On November - 11 - 2011

They’re saying, “Hey tubby! I bet you can’t ride me….you’re too soft and pudgy to go fast on me…” You going to let the trail talk smack on you? Psssh don’t let it bully you! Get out there this weekend and RIDE!

Happy Birthday to The Moe

Posted by RL Policar On November - 2 - 2011

Well its another year and it’s The Moe’s Bday. We organized a short ride with the usual suspects at the World Famous Fullerton Loop.

Here’s a photo of Moe during one of our rest stops. He was explaining the finer points of taking Glamour Shots at the local mall. He said that if you place your hands underneath your jaw line, it gets rid of the double chins! Already he looks skinnier, what a great tip!

Note to self: Drinking beer before a ride is not a good idea…

This is my best “Asian” impression….”Herroo!” (disclaimer-its ok, I’m Asian)

The fun didn’t really start until we got to our Fish Taco place. In this photo, I want to see if you can find the letter “Q.” Email me if you find it and I’ll send you a shirt or hat for your prize.

After dinner, Priscilla busted out the birthday cupcakes. Moe and I do this every year. Let’s just say its a tradition we’ve been doing for the last 10 or so years.

Doc Thunda felt left out so he wanted to try it by himself. He said to us, ” I always take great pictures, there’s never been one of me that is bad…” I think he’s absolutely right!

In this photo, we were laughing because Khoa (not pictured) was talking about how great iPhones are. Both Moe and I have Andriod based phones and couldn’t help but burst out laughing because how much Siri sucks. In our opinions, Siri is like the Jar Jar Binks of the Smart Phone world….haha.

Anyhow, we had a great time hanging out with the birthday boy. The Moe even agreed with my sentiments by saying, “This is the best birthday I’ve had this whole year!”

Costume Ride at the Fully Loop

Posted by RL Policar On October - 27 - 2011

Last night was our costume! I convinced Moe to make sure he dresses up in good taste. Last year he was go-go dancer. I busted out green leisure suit. Which by the way sucks for riding because of the bell bottom pants would get caught on the chain, plus the material was hot during the climbs but when it came down to descending, I was freezing because it would let in air….but hey, I looked good right?

Megan and Nick DiBlasi showed up as Wilma and Fred. That’s Gabe back there, I asked him what he dressed up as and he said, “I’m dressed as a Romanian…don’t you get it?!!!”

Moe was dressed up too, but he’s way back there so you can’t see what he’s wearing.

Then this guy named “Elder Chad” shows up and asked if he could join the ride. I said sure! Why not, what harm would that be…right?
DSC02201

Well, little did I know Elder Chad was already talking about his book to Gabe. His response, “Oh so you mean to tell me, I too could look as good as you in a white shirt?”

One of the problems of being a MASHER like Nick, he goes through chains like underwear. He was destroying a hill and BAM! Busted a chain…
DSC02222
But he said, “It’s not a chain, its my TESTICLES!”….thanks for correcting me Nick.
DSC02224
Funny thing about this whole scene…he’s dressed up as Fred Flintstone and he’s…doing the Fred Flintstone….
DSC02225
But between myself and Moe, we were able to tow him back in to the car.

This was actually a pretty site to see…big thanks to Gabe for taking a video.

Good times I tell ya…good times!

Let’s see if you can relate.

Posted by RL Policar On July - 29 - 2011

The other day Priscilla and I were talking about how much fun we had on our recent trip to Big Bear. She stated; “When I’m mountain biking, I can just be myself and I don’t have to worry about anything…”

When I heard that, I immediately knew what she was talking about. I too feel REALLY good when I’m riding my bike, it’s such a great escape and I can forget about all the stresses of the world, like she said I can be myself.

In fact when I’m not on my bike, I day dream about riding. For example, if I were to walk to my car or to the mail box, I’ll have my arms in front of me pretending to hold handlebars and I’ll picture myself railing a berm as I eat a burrito…

Shake N’ Bake

Posted by RL Policar On April - 14 - 2011

As my day in the office is coming to an end, and my night for MtnBikeRiders.com gets started, I can’t help but feel excited about this coming weekend at Sea Otter. I’m not sure how to control all the excitement because I’m getting anxiety attacks and I probably won’t be able to take my pre-drive nap this evening.

Just so I don’t forget anything for the weekend, I’ve made a short list of things  that I’ll need to make sure our driver loads into the Limo.
1. Bike(s) Always carry a spare. That way you can match it to what you’re wearing!
2. Allergy meds.
3. Alcohol
4. Lube (the bike kind…pervert)
5. Chain or in this case, my cable to lock the bikes.
6. Cameras. Get ready to be blown away with our highly coveted photos and videos! Other websites will be so jealous of us. We’ve invested a ton of money ($4.56) into the technology we’re going to use just so we can enhance the viewer experience of MtnBikeRiders.com.

The GPS says we’ll arrive on Monday, so that means we may miss the event entirely. But if we follow some truckers heading north somewhere, I’m almost certain that we’ll end up in Monterey, Ca. See you on the flip side and make sure you check out our Facebook Fan Page to keep updated.   We also have this thing called a Titter account. I’ll be Titting through that as well.
