I may be insane, but I have one of these on it's way to me.
It's a longboard style skateboard. I've always wanted one, and prosicated and I were wanting one the other day to ferry large pieces of scavenged furniture home on, so I said 'what the hell' and found a sweet deal on one.
I hesitate to mention it, but last time I was on a "board" (snowboard in that instance) I smashed up my collarbone real good, so I'm excited but nervous. I haven't gone snowboarding since then, but that's mostly a budget issue, not due to fear of getting back on that particular waggon. I think I'd like to hit the slopes again this winter at some point.
I've gotten very sedentary in the past year. Not having a good laid-back summer frisbee league in Boston definitely put a damper on my physical activity. I'm enjoying being in a band, but that's eating up a lot of my time as well, so I'm just not doing as much as I'd like to be. Hopefully this will get me off my butt occasionally.

I didn't know you snowboarded! If you're looking for company on that particular adventure, I'm always (usually unsuccessfully) looking for ski trip buddies.
It's been quite a while, as I said.
like... 7 years come this winter.
But I'd love to get back into it, and prosicated
has said she'd be interested in trying to learn, so perhaps we should do this shiznit up!
Does that mean you failed to get a bike?
dude, I got a bike months ago.
City/commuter stylie, cause... well... that's what I am.
As long as one rides, one can ride what one will.
That reminds me, I think my knee if a little infected where I sliced it open on a rock.....
By the way, I couldn't buy a mountain bike with a stiff front fork. NO ONE MAKES THEM for under a grand. at least around here.
Yeah, it's gotten so most of the full rigid set are the die hard traditional retrogrouches. I found a full rigid that I wouldn't mind having, it's pretty insane:http://img106.echo.cx/img106/8560/pug16cb.jpg
Yes, those are 3.7" tires. Not gonna be a cheap toy though, so I probably won't really get one--at least not for quite a while.
