    Early Thursday Somo ride

    I'm planning to ride from the Ramadas fairly early tomorrow, 0530 at the latest due to the heat. Route is negotiable (up Mormon or up National, heck we can park at 46th and climb Javelina if you want).

    Post up if you wanna ride early.

    I'm planning on leaving the ramadas at 5a. I'm going up Mormon back down national. I'm slow so you'll probably catch me.

    I'm probably going to be about the same (time wise). Climbing isn't my strong point so I'll probably stick with Mormon. Ill be in a silver elantra on a silver Jamis hardtail. I rode with you on Sunday so you shouldn't be to hard to find. I just have to be back at my car ready to go by 630 so I can get to work on time.

    Are you seriously not going to ride because you have a flat tire?

    Words can not describe how gay you are.

    Drew would go but his bike is sitting in the garage upside down and it's too hot to turn it right side up.

    Ezra and I left the lot right at 0500 and did a quick up natty and down , ....I wished I had checked the board this morning before I left and we could have ridded with Blatant and the gang .

    We did end up riding with Dave on a new "Banshee Rune" , but I did not see many others out there .

    The weather was really nice and the ride was good !

    I think I might have passed you guys on national. Two were headed up and I was headed down. I saw a guy on a banshee a little further down.

    Dave: Sorry if you waited for me. I was about 10 minutes late and had a small mechanical on the first obstacle up National.

    I had zero energy this morning. Met jcsxj as he was coming down. I climbed to about halfway between the triangle and the split, then decided I'd had enough.

    Our new start time is 6am I think (from Pima)...still got to get a hold of my buddy. No idea how far we will go but the saddle and down is the hope. Haven't ridden in 3 weeks and I'm currently drinking a beer or 5 so pace might be pathetic. If you feel like racing around you don't want to ride with us

    You'll get many repsonses... I like making it. Some may not. If I didn't I might be tempted to try Slime Pro.

    Best Tubeless Brew?

    Is the Bible for homebrews. It's a long thread so I'll summarize:

    Recipe 1
    1:2:2
    Latex Mold Builder : Slime Tubeless/ATV : Water or RV Antifreeze

    Recipe 2
    1:2:1:1
    Latex Mold Builder : Slime Tubeless/ATV : Water : RV Antifreeze

    eatdrinkride- I hung out with jcxj(cant recall your actual name) and Drew til about 620 and figured you either started earlier or drank too much. I hope it was the early start

    jcsxj- I'm the lazy type and didnt want the hassle of mixing stuff, so I went the easy route with Stans. Best decision I ever made was to go tubless. Im sure youll agree soon

    Anyone up for some Saturday morning helipad?

    Did you pass us on the fireroad up to Mormon??? I hope that wasn't you dude, if so...sorry. We took a long time getting ready in the lot and the only guy I saw at the ramadas was with a couple teenagers on bikes.

    Anyhow, maybe that wasn't you, if it was... my apologies. We had a rough day of it, took 90 mins at least to make it to the saddle. We did hook up with a guy on an orange Turner for much of the way up, that wasn't you was it?
