    Springs night ride 2/6/13

    Yesterday some peeps mention wanting to ride Section 16, Stephanies and finish with some Red Rocks, the exact route to get there has not been decided but I figure we could meet at Rudy's BBQ at 6pm and hammer out the details.

    Sounds like its going to be a fun ride. Looks like the back might be ready. I'm back up to being able to walk with my back straight. Good thing I have good friends like rcjones to help me out or my dogs would have starved to death.
    Jay dude you bringing the enduro?

    I successfully (I hope) installed the new drivetrain last night so I'm looking to see how it works on the gauntlet of Section 16! Bye-bye chain slap!

    It's not THAT fancy--just an XT Shadow Plus, a new cassette, new chain and one of those plastic chainguide doohickies like Keith has on his Niner. The Shinobi has been overdue for some loving for a while now so I'm happy to get it back running. Maybe tonight I can even give the fork a little love before the ride....

    FYI, If you havent already. Be sure to use 3 zip-ties on your c-guide as it is recommended on their website. I only used two initially and it didn't hold up well.

    Yeah, I have three on and I'm going to pick Chris' brain regarding wire wrapping if I decide I like it and want to keep using it long term. Thanks for the heads up though!

    OOOHHHH! Nice! Looks good, although it could really use more orange. I'd like to try it on before it gets too gross--I'm very curious about their helmets but I've never tried one on to see if it would fit me.

    Thats what I get for ordering with out trying on. Looks like this one is too small and will send back to chain love. Hard to pass up at $60 bones though...

    Heck yeah..safety wire is like a permanent zip-tie. I love the conveince of zip-ties, but when it comes to longevity in high-stress locations, safety wire is king. BTW, if you guys want to add the pliers to your tool kit, harbor freight sells them for $12!!!

    9" Safety Wire Twisting Pliers

    As for wire, I like .021" for most things and .032" for burley applications. Avoid .041" unless you are wiring up an airplane

    Just looked at the weather, bring a rain jacket. Think being close to the mountains may be a smart choice.

    p_dubs, I don't care, would we still be parking at Rudy's

    amanda's fonda closes at 9, so that's out... front range BBQ and shuga's are good options

    we should still park at Rudy's though, good place to start

    Re: Springs 1/30/13 night ride Palmer park?

    Yep still meeting at Rudys.
    Some peeps might be riding over so we can discuss after ride entertainment during the ride. Although hopefully we're drenched and covered in snow when we're done! :thumbup:
