    Had to decide .... wash my bike in preparation for tomorrow or mow the grass.
    Dang my bike looks good.
    Hint on getting the gunk out of your gears and cogs. Use a shoestring and floss it out.
    Dirt, mud and oil are a part of trail riding. Finding the fastest most effective way to do maintenance is a boon.

    Swapped out my stem from a 70mm to a 50mm.

    Brought my beginnerish friend to a more technical trail and he went over the handle bars twice because he refuses to learn how to go over obstacles and do drops with any sort of finesse.. Lol he'll learn one way or the other

    I rode around and did some jumps on my 3700 Disk, and put in a short ride of 3.5 miles at the Woodstock Reservoir with my Trek Cobia.
    Tomorrow I'll do another ride on my Cobia, and most likely Tuesday. Hopefully my new gravel grinder will be ready on Monday, and by then I'll have a new rear tyre because when under load, my current rear tyre rubs into the frame.

    Took my new-to-me SC Blur XC out into the woods behind the house to try out the new drivetrain it got last week. Ordered some new-to-me XTR shifters today, too (to replace the combo brake/shifters that came on it ...ugh).

    Broke in the new bars today. Simmons alloy with 2.5" rise. Also bought a pair of ergo grips with locks. Handles like a brand new bike. The awesome was dripping off my ride today.

    I rode another 5.5 miles at Pine Hill Park today.
    My tyre really began to irritate me, but I was able to ride one trail I never rode before, and that made me happy.

    Did a little low-key 'grand opening' of the pumptrack we built in town this spring. Gave away some swag, hung out, got a few new customers, weather was perfect...good day.

    20 miles of gravel roads, then I trashed a brake lever bleeding my brakes. Avid Elixirs 5, cheaper to carry an anchor than try and keep these running, replace the pads then buy the bleed kit, then bleed and clean the rotors, then bleed again, then ponder the leaking fluid from the rear brake lever then order new brakes cause - damn. My wife (God created her just for me) says, "If you were buying this bike new and you could make it how you want it, what brakes would it have? When you figure that out, order new brakes, boom, done." Gotta love a woman who wants you happy with your primary commuter/trail bike.

    Rode 9.3 miles this afternoon. Half on a new2me trail.
    It was at least 100 in the canyon today. I got too hot so I loafed the downhills & made the last mile back to the truck.
    Borrowed a gopro & got some good footage. I'll try to load it on YouTube tomorrow.
    Forster, your situation is the #1 reason I won't do hydro brakes.

    Rode a couple of miles. The wife and I have been walking for a month or so. I decided to get some saddle time in so I rode my bike instead. Went really slow for her while she walked. (I know guys but she prefers to walk.) Lots of work at that speed. I did get some saddle time though. Gotta count for something.

    I rode in the Mason Racing group ride tonight. I got a pinch flat, after getting a new tyre and taking 10-15psi out of it before the ride. I didn't bring a spare tube so now I have to pay someone for giving me their spare tube.
    Also someone broke a rear derailleur.
    All in all it was a very dark techy ride, 7.5 miles, and I was exhausted.

    Took the rear wheel off of the Kona to get a new tube. Unfortunately, both LBS were closed due to monsoon-induced blackouts south of my house.

    Took my "old" gravel bike out on some back roads. Steep climbs, fast descents, some singletrack, class 4 road, almost 6 miles.
    I can't wait to take my new Gravel bike on a ride later this week.

    Rode my five mile square. I do it at least once later in the week to keep my legs in shape for the weekend. Might make another run tomorrow. Depends on time available.

    Finally rode my Kona after getting a new tube (the roads are still dirty from the previous monsoon). Made it as far as Rotary Park, saw the lightning, reversed direction.

    Re: What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Took off these...


    Used a pipe cutter to trim a half inch off the end cause they were on so tight the bent the end of my handlebar and made it like this...


    Also put on my new brake pads on the rear. Not able to ride today. Pulled a muscle in my back. Should be good to go by next week. Also looking to buy a new stem.

    Why did you take off the bar ends? I like bar ends because they help on the climbs.

    I've had them on for months and almost never used them. I'm pretty rookie and where I'm at in southeast Michigan there's not a ton of major climbs where I felt I needed them.

    Replaced my Elixir 3s with BB7s. No more bleeding, thinking about bleeding or whining about how little I like bleeding brakes.

    12.5 miles this morning, a lot of people out riding. Forgot to check air pressure in tires before leaving the parking lot and at the end came to the conclusion that 26 is to low for me and 32 to high. Now that Quiet Waters has developed a deep sandy area by the paddle boat lake where they bulldozed overgrown vegetation. I have a better idea of how my recent tire combo is working out, Ardent 2.25 F Crossmark 2.10 R both EXO and TR, I have to say I'm pretty pleased, the Ardent in front is hands and shoulders above the X-King it replaced in keeping a straight line through the deep sand. I've yet to ride in West Delray yet where the roots and ruts are many , but so far so good. The tires do a much better job keeping pressure than the X-Kings they replaced between rides and the sidewalls dont look anything like the Conti's. So far I'd say they are the best combo I've had in So Flo in terms of an all around tire.Now if I can get more than 400 miles out of them I'll really be happy.

    7.4 miles on my Gravel Grinder on some back roads today.
    Realised the Tektros suck, so they don't really work on the descents. Because of this I go too fast over some washed out roads, irritating my arms.
    Other than that there was mud.

    I didn't ride at all. Started looking for my lights so I can ride of an evening a little later in the year. I found my tail light, found the front light but haven't found my mount for it yet.

    Rode a new2me trail in the canyon that is pretty dang technical. It ties into two other trails that I already ride. Together the entire ride is almost nine miles. Seems that I have to ride at least seven to eight miles to get any satisfaction anymore.
    BTW it was 102 when I started my ride yesterday. An hour later when I finished it was 90 at 8:00 pm

    Finished a 103.2 mile ride on the Fargo and two minutes behind me was another Fargo (with the stock Conti's) who rode an extra 9 miles for 112.2 miles. Guess my 16 mph average can't hold up against a seasoned endurance racer.

    Trying to get in shape and ride more so today I did 16 miles and my tail bone was screaming in pain when I was done. Guess my attempt at a seat adjustment was a bad idea.

    Even better, I decided to crash my new bike for a second time. Took the wrong fork on a trail on my return back and was going faster than I should have been. By the time I realized it was the wrong trail i hit a bit of moss on a downhill turn and tucked the front wheel.

    Bent the rear derailleur hanger and the front rim. Putting this trek care to good use already

    Rode a little squirrley single track today. Was built in a caliche pit. Was loose bumpy & overgrown. The grasshoppers were taking over. Would be a nice little track of it was laid out differently. Front wheel washed out once early on. All the decent downs end up in a hairpin so you can't get enough speed to climb the next one. I'll have to ride it a few more times to see if I can get inside the designers head. Right now.... Not.

    Picked up my rear wheel after getting it trued. Put it on my bike and took a quick ride up the block. Then went back to work on my daughter's bike. Got it pretty much ready for the weekend. It's an old ozone my Dad gave her. We will have a family ride / picnic this weekend.
    Riding that old Ozone definitely makes me appreciate my Jamis. Conversely I know there are kids who would love to have that bike.

    Soooo...I made some noob mistakes today. At the recommendation of a few people I decided to upgrade my stem. So I have never done this before but figured "hey how hard can it be?" I was right! Super easy.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?-imag1646.jpg

    Then came the realization that my old 90's era handlebar will no longer fit. Oops. So then I find out that to get a new handlebar I should go wider than the short straight bar I have. Well I decided to test out a wider bar...by doing this...

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?-imag1645.jpg

    Yeah I rode around the street after marking the length of the new handlebar I am getting on a garden hoe. Wow I have to say this is going to be an adjustment. The new bar will be adding over 2 inches on both sides. And it will be a riser. But hey I guess this is all part of the learning process. If I don't like it I can always go back. I have to say even though I'm stumbling through these fixes and upgrades I am really enjoying it.

    Hucked out a 6.6 mile brake burn-in ride today. Accelerate, brake, accelerate, brake. Boring but the brakes work great now so there's that. Also made a new cable retaining clamp for my fork after breaking the original one. This one is black linen micarta (looks like carbon fiber - sort of) and much stronger than stock. God bless my dremel tool and drill press.

    Went to holbridge again. Found out I'm still outta shape. 6 miles in this humidity and I'm beat. Me and a buddy both went over the handlebars at the same time. That was pretty funny. But the whole purpose was to test out the new stem and handlebars. The final verdict: they are one hell of an upgrade.

    5 mile ride at Pine Hill Park. It was a great ride, but I broke a spoke and didn't realize it until I got back to the car.
    That's the second broken spoke in a month.

    19 miles on my Misceo at the local rail trail, just to get a lot of fast mileage before the week.

    That was a total of 35 or so miles for me this weekend.

    Squeezed in 9 mile at Dupont Friday evening after work. Went back Sunday afternoon for 10 miles with a bud. Rode Ridgeline trail for the first time(awesome!)
    Went today to Green River Gamelands and rode Turkey Gut to Stairstep to Bear Branch and down Bishop Branch. My climbing legs were toast.
    Great weekend though!

    Fixed an annoying creak on my Salsa. I thought it was coming from the BB, but it turned out to be a loose pivot bearing.

    Of course I had to pull the crankset and chain guide in order to get at the bearing bolt, so I checked the BB and re lubed everything while it was apart.

    Good as new!

    Then I did a 6 mile road ride with it and bunny hopped a bunch of times and practiced riding wheelies. I'm getting better!

With my bluto on the way, the bike would be gathering dust.. Bike belongs in the trail, not in the garage... Goodbye scott, happy trails

    don't really need an extra bike.. 3 weeks ago i had 3 bikes.. another fatbike (kona wo). my scott spark elite and the fatboy.. got rid of the kona coz' didn't need 2 fatbikes.. then wasn't using the scott for awhile.. was thinking of keeping it but where i ride here in san diego, the fatboy with front suspension should be adequate.. but too be honest i'm having a sellers remorse if there is such a thing.. should ghave kept the damn bike.. oh well.. maybe save up again and get a carbon fs next year..

    Today I did essentially my entire ride forgetting that I had my suspension locked out. I was hitting some pretty rooty-rocky single/double track at a reasonable speed thinking I was going faster than I was as the bike was bouncing around a good bit more than normal. Oh well, live and learn. ha

    Friday was day 4 of consecutive rides on the old alloy h/t - 11 year old front forks. Just happy to be getting out regularly now.

    Tues was an early morning ride of 11 miles, gravel pathway; Santa Fe

    Weds- a quick (for me) burst up the Chutes at Stratton to sneak in a ride I didn't have extra time for .... 4.6 miles

    Thurs- 10 miles of a different section on Santa Fe with some good headwinds ...

    Friday- out to see how the rain / mist left things at Mt Herman area / preserve... 3.6 miles of fun stuff there.

    Rode 12 miles at West Delray today before the bottom fell out of the sky. After a few month layoff at this park I have to ask myself why I'm not riding here more often, its much better riding than Quiet Waters. Apparently I should have called the guy on Craigslist about his 2012 Trek Fuel EX 9 frame he was selling for $400 sooner because his ad has been deleted.

    Today was adventurous. A huge storm last night and the trails where extremely slippery. First big decent a hit and my front tire lost traction and over the front I went. This in the first 2 minutes of my ride.

    Picked myself up and kicked the trails butt for the next 20kms!

    Road 19.5 miles today at Elm Creek today. My longest single track ride ever on my bike. Ended up doing the loop twice. Interesting to see how that first three miles rides differently the second time around.

    Okay, so not what I did today, but what I did yesterday on my bike (too tired to post last night, whew!):

    Took a ride up Tiger Mountain with a buddy of mine... and pretty much got my rear end kicked the whole ride. Thankfully he's a good longtime friend and was okay with having to stop so I could catch up. I spent more time walking my bike up the steeper parts of the fire road we were on than actually riding, but exercise is exercise, right? Still managed to bike/walk over 5 miles and, according to MapMyRide, burned about 1,400 calories. I also learned that an area that's "intermediate to advanced" is probably still a bit above my fitness level at the moment.

    Even though I got thrashed, I'm still looking forward to getting out again (on an easier trail) and getting my fitness level to where I can actually ride the mountain instead of walking it. Still love my bike, and can't wait to get back on it!

    I did ride it just wasn't my mountain bike. I ride the old highway 30 from Hood River to The Dalles. There was alot more climbing than I was expecting. The wife was cussing me but I had never rode there before so I didn't know. It ended up being a great ride though. I would like to go up in the fall just to see the foliage. I think it would be beautiful.

    Went out last evening with some guys that are waaaay better than me. For two hours it was push, ride, crash. Three face plants , one was hard enough to knock off my visor.
    Hardest work & best time I have ever had on my bike.
