    First ride on the new Yeti last night. Couldn't stop for pics because the deer flies were chasing me. Classic NH single track...damp, roots, rocky and hilly.
    Love it. I'm beginning to feel like Fast Eddie Felson. "I'm back"

    Replaced bearings in the 20mm front hub:
    - removed shot bearings using an old screwdriver and a hammer
    - found out what bearings I need (marked on the bearings)
    - went to a bearing shop and bought an equivalent set
    - improvised a bearing press out of 20mm through bolt, the old bearings, and an old pair of Hollowtech 2 BB bearing cups.

    Went on a relatively short ride/hike up a steep downhilly type piece of land, it's got roots 2ft steps, narrow pathways and runs ~20% grade. Went up at dusk and came down at night.

    The entire path was mostly hard/wet sand with a very thin layer of loose on top, new tires did better than expected on the way down. Now I just need to get some pads that are less prone to fading after extended braking periods.

    i finally paid off my lay away! i got to finally bring home my trek fuel 90. riding it and looking at it more closely i have decided it is well worth the 350 that i spent. i was expecting to have to get a tune up on it but i got on and with a barrel swivel tightened it shifted braked and road smooth as any other bike i have ridden. after a short one mile ride around my neighborhood i realized i am horribly out of shape... the only thing it needs now is lights for lights riding and and an extended seat post(for my height). excited to do some trail riding next week. will have pictures up as soon as i figure out hoe to get them off my phone and onto here. can any one help. i have an iphone if that means anything.

    20 miles along the SoCal beach. Not too warm. Not muggy. Great scenery.

    Got my butt handed to me today. Had no business riding the stuff I did with the guys I rode with. Still--the new Yeti is amazing.
    I can't wait till I get my sorry butt into shape. More determined than ever.

    Just a wild guess: Canada or Northern Europe.
    The further North you go, the more daylight hours you get in summer.

    I announced my intentions to ride, on a local forum, yesterday. Two other guys showed up (today).
    We rode some bumpy trails and some smooth and twisty trails. Stopped for a cup of coffee on the way too, and rode some streets to get to the next piece of trail.

    Had it all ready to go yesterday. But the biggest storm we have seen around here for a while came through. Trees down in alot of areas from winds and flooding. I had to clean up the yard so thee only think I did today was clean my bike. It was a nice day out too but most folks were cleaning up storm damage. Heading out around 5:30am or so tomorrow.

    Test rode the GT Avalanche Hans Rey that I've had my eye on for the last week. Still trying to decide whether I should swap out the air fork for coils should I choose to make the purchase. Made my way back to the house and gave my fork a much needed full service, installed a new weinmann zac-19, and re-aligned the brake. Ran a few test laps to ensure everything is performing at optimum. Want to get started at daybreak before the sun gets a chance to break out the frying pan.

    Three hours today from 5:00am to 8:00am on the trails. Was quiet and such a nice ride today. Saw a couple turtles and rabbits.

    I threw my chain going from the middle gear to small gear today though, havent done that for a while. I don't think I threw a chain all last season come to think of it, easy fix though. But Im wondering what may have caused it?

    After a few minutes of goofing around on my Cobia, the bike computer said that I had done 100 miles.
    I am sorry that I have no pics, but I am unable to upload any pictures at this moment.

    Cleared this chunky section for the first time ever! After two seasons of riding this same trail network I finally fully committed to clearing it. Here's a pic of my girlfriend clearing it earlier this summer....I knew I'd never hear the end of it if I didn't finally man up and just go for it. Sweet taste of success put a huge smile on my face.

    Took the new to me Gary Fisher SuperCaliber 29er out for the first time at Alafia State park. Did about 10 miles, I really dont keep track. My son had his new to him GF 24er and said he loves the new ride. Me, I gotta get use to the 29er size, coming from a 26 I would throw around curves and between trees.
    This 29er made me about a second off and a inch off on every turn, root, or obstacle. Just gotta ride more and get use to the handling.

    Did 13 mile loop X2, I went down in a corner hard, went OTB and crashed on a jump I have done 50 times. First lap was flawless, all obstacles were done with out incident, second loop not so good LOL. Guess I caught up today on the crash tally, only thing hurt was my pride.

    I rode my road bike today after I piked it up from my LBS that was repairing it. The road I rode on today was very windy, but it was very fun and fast.

    Did about 12 miles or so today, was on the trails around 5:30am. It was a tad cool out, almost felt like a September morning and not a July morning.

    I rode at Snow Summit (Big Bear, CA). I bought a day pass for the lift and did 5 runs. I did 2N10, both east and west. It was a blast. I need nothing more exciting or technical.

    After spending the night in Big Bear (Calif), I did a second day at Snow Summit. I did just two runs because I had to leave for home. I did them both on 2N10, west side. Strava says my best time for the 4 miles was 12.8 mph, but it felt more like 30. I guess the dirt, dust, rocks and twists makes it seem faster than it is -- considering I ride at 15 on level pavement.

    Warped my rotor in the rear (I hope) while riding on a new trail system on Cox District Road in Woodstock, VT. I was out riding with a group of mountain bikers from Woodstock on those trails. I had a nasty tip over into a large area of raspberry bushes. I got scraped up and I had to ride back to the cars before everyone else because my knee was aching.

    Replaced my front and rear derailleurs: from Deore (3x9) to SLX (2x9). Also replaced my stock SRAM cranks with RaceFace Ride. Next up is getting my fork travel adjusted to 120.

    Little over 5 miles at the local park... it is about 1 1/2 miles from the house... so a total of 8 miles or so... Nothing technical, but several hills... just a decent ride for me in the 95 degree temps...

    Third ride this week, first was with my daughter so I didn't go very fast on that one...

    Rode Quiet Waters this morning until the downpour.Then changed my first flat in about 20 years, then looked at the tire and realized it's mounted the wrong way for rotation. Oh well it's on the front and will suffice for now since it's on my back up ride.
