    I fixed my rear brakes that sounded like a damn trumpet. Hopefully.

    How did you fix them? I am having a similar issue.

    Just a short ride around my neighborhood, I didn't have much time before work. It was a great way to start the day! I can't wait to ride again tomorrow.

    I learned not to try consecutive drops and rock gardens while going through a descending corner, doing so with my suntour fork turns the bike into a bronco. As fun as the rodeo was, I don't think I'll trying that again anytime soon. I'm still surprised I managed to stay on the bike, though I think tomorrow I'm gonna have 2 flat tires from going through 12 foot or so of thorn bushes in the hopes of getting the bike back up and on the singletrack. I still had a blast though.

    Replaced the BB on my daily. Came super close to lobbing it over the fence after the 20min job turned into an hour long epic. Convinced myself not to, as I like having a bike that doesn't attract attention when locked up in the city. Sometimes I think a new bike would be nice during the week, but that's why I have my Anthem for the weekends.

    Old BB was a sealed square taper jobby.

    Wasnt sealed when I went to remove it. Never seen a sealed bottom bracket come out in bits. Explains the crunch/squeak I was getting on the ride home the day before. Glad I didn't try and power through it, and took it steady. I suspect it had never been replaced before as screwing it back in was a mission in itself. Thought I was cross threading it, so took me a number of attempts to make sure it was fine before committing to tightening it back up again.

    After hitting the trail, five minutes in took a spill. Got up started pedaling up a hill and snap. Broken chain. Luckily not too far from a bike shop. Village bicycles on Warrick blvd. In Newport News, Va. gave me the hook-up. 3 dollars and 30 minutes later was back hitting the trails with a vengence. All in all was a good day.

    What did i do today..... Been riding my new bike without the steerer cut while i decided on what height I wanted. Finally decided on the height. Measured, took the fork off, got set-up and my 8.999 month pregnant wife decided we needed to go have the baby. I tried to stall her so that I could finish my bike, but no the baby had to come before the bike(whatever). Anyway, 90 minutes later she decided it was a false alarm. Came home, remeasured my steerer, forgot the headset height this time and cut my steerer in the wrong place. Anyway, new fork is on order as of this morning and I learned yet another valuable life lesson. At 11pm after rushing to the hospital, cutting a steerer tube is a bad idea....

    That's what I did on my mountain bike today!

    Yup. Measure 2x, cut 1x. And if you take a break after measuring, re - measure again!

    Hell, measure it 3 times!

    Today I picked up a wireless odometer/speedo for the mountain bike but ran out of time and desire to install it. That will be tomorrow I hope....
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    13 miles of trail. 4.5 hours. Over half of that was "moving time". Getting better... one day at a time. Maybe I'll try some easier trails next time.

    I went on my first solo ride yesterday - short 8 miles on a beginners trail (Carbon Canyon SoCal) but it was awesome I could push myself harder and felt more relaxed - don't get me wrong I like riding with my more experienced buddies but since they flaked, I took a chance and went on my own and had a blast!

    I was pretty pumped about riding 3 hours and 30 miles of trails over the weekend. I feel like I am ready to try my fist race.
    Now if I can only find that damned clicking before I go completely insane!!! Crank is clicking while under power...sometimes only 2-3 click per turn but seems to get worse the dirtier I get.

    Good luck!

    I spent about 3 or 4 hours on Saturday getting rid of a creak.

    Still have no idea what it actually was, but after pulling my cranks 4 times, pulling my chainring bolts (2 of which were broken, but not causing the creak), degreasing and lubing everything to include suspension bearings, IT IS GONE!!!!!

    Bowfish--- those creeks can be anything.. Your going to have to fix one thing-- then go test-- then fix another then go test.. First off-- clean everything and tighten the ring bolts.. Also make sure your pedals are not loose.. Ill pull my pedals off --grease the threads and put them back on.. Go ride-- still creaks.. Take the crank off and clean and lube everything including the threads(if you have the tool to pull the cups off-- those cups can loosen up so make sure after you lube them to really hunker them down).. Now all clean and lubed-- bb-cranks-spindle-bearing surfaces--put it all back together and tighten everything up.. Go ride-- still creaking? Pull the seat post and lube it -- put it back in-- go ride-- still creaking.. Lube your seat rails-- re-tighten-- go ride.. still creaking? Lube the RD hanger (was just reading about a guy that his rd and the hanger is where his creak was coming from).. Also make sure your rear wheel is on tight.. Believe it or not-- ive done pretty much all i wrote here before only to realize my rear axel was a bit loose lol.. DOhhhhhh.. Oh well at least i knew all was tight and lubed and clean lol.. GL finding your creaks..

    Didn't get a chance to ride today because of the storms bombarding the east coast today. I did however get a chance to change the stock tires on my F7 to WTB Velociraptors. Can't wait to hit the trails.

    Took my Raleigh build out for another shakedown run before hitting the trails this weekend. Managed to find some mild dirt trails on accident as well. I now know I need a firmer spring for the Tora, a new rebound damper, and I have to track down an annoying popping noise that I have no idea where it's coming from (I'm suspecting it's my crappy pedals).

    Rode into work, 3.5 miles give or take a few points. Realized my allergies are making this steep climb suck more than normal.

    After work rode home, thankfully downhill until I hit the home stretch then it's another suck ass hill. Yay for Kentucky hills......

    ....one month into my return to biking (not really limited to "today")

    I'm averaging 25 miles a week trail riding

    Upgrades + repairs to the Mantra so far:
    - New Deore LX SL-M580 shifters
    - New Raceface Evolve crankset (old cook brothers crankset was worn)
    - Replaced front der with Shimano XTR FD-M952-E
    - Upgraded Bontrager stem to Ritchey adjustable stem
    - Replaced Thomson seatpost with Bontrager RXL Carbon seatpost
    - Replaced painful nutcracker race seat with Giant gel padded seat
    - New Answer Protaper 720 carbon handlebars
    - Added Ergon GP1 grips.
    - Upgraded to Power Grips Sport pedals.

    ... my carpal tunnel numbness has been reduced significantly... wrist braces to arrive later today... hoping that all this will make the CTS go away.

    Next on the project list:
    - rebuild Fox TALAS fork that I got off ebay
    - make billet 22mm to ISO or post-type rear caliper adaptor
    - install Avid Juicy Carbon disc brakeset
    - install Mavic CrossMax wheels + Maxxis Ignitors
    - toss out v-brakes
    - try to score a new rear derailleur on ebay...

    Went to RCA in Rocky Point with wife and kids. Weather man said sunny all day. Well 8 miles in on a 13 mile loop the skies got very dark. We had lightning and so much rain I felt I should build an ark. Last few miles the trail looked like a stream. Once back at the truck we all drove home in our underwear.

    Went down to the basement, made sure there was air in the tires. Cursed my squeaky rear brake.

    Left it to drive to kid's soccer practice.

    (last night) Went out for a decent ride around town and ran into a local bike group, didn't realize we had any that were really active around here that didn't start out 10+ miles from my apartment

    Cleaned and packed my Trek Superfly 100 and my 9-0-7 Fatty for a trip to NC tomorrow morning. Going to ride the fatty as much as I can at the US National White Water Center and race the Superfly at the 6 Hour Grind on the Greenway, or maybe the other way around.

    Rode 18 miles and while on the crushed limestone trail found some ATV trails as the foliage is dead. Had a great time exploring and working on some much needed skills. I figure if I'm on private property I'll get pot shots taken at me or a "Wow..let me check out your bike and then get off my property".

    Rode my 29er on the 6 Hour Grind on the Greenway course in SC today. Found out my technical skills are not so good. Well, I kinda knew that already. Still had fun.

    Put these on


    Little bigger rotors


    But I only got to putting the rotors on the wheels. I need new shift pods, since my old setup was shifters and brakes in one unit.

    Rode about 5 miles in 45* weather yesterday. Had to remember every turn and rut because the entire trail was covered with fallen leaves.

    I help coach a Colorado High School MTB team and yesterday we had our last practice of season. We were at the Valmont Bike Park and all the kids were absolutely pushing it! Just seeing the progression over the season culminate in a single day of riding has got me absolutely stoked about riding again.

    Rode the local mtn lift before it turns into a ski lift for the winter with my wife (only her 2nd time on a MTB). Here is the video from my GoPro (none of her at her request):

    Rode a 10.5 race course in the middle of a heavy wind/rainstorm doing a pre-race trail check at 7:30am. Over .5" of rain in a 30-40 minute period so it was absolutely NO fun. Hund out during the race in case any trees fell, then went out for a clean up lap to remove caution tape/pick up trash after the 6 hour cutoff for the last lap. That lap was fun since the trail dried well during the day.
