    Not good at all. Maybe I'll ask Santa for some knee guards. But she'll just tell me to slow down. Maybe if I come in with a trashed knee...

Busted my glasses, dented my helmet, and put an incurable wobble in the front wheel.
    Looks like to me he washed out in the loose dirt to the down side of the rock. With the soil so loose and dry it is much more likely to happen.
    The weather's good but the trails are too damn dry....

    After telling him my riding style etc he built my wheels using Bontrager's Duster rims (tubeless) and Hopes Pro II hubs.

    Never has a single problem with the wheels until my 'incident' last Saturday - not even a loose spoke.. nada.

    The weather man says we're supposed to have a high today of 39 up in Otero - I'm doubtful since it looks warmer already this morning (sunshine/blue skies et al).

    But a cold front is on the way, forecast low temp for Tijeras is 9 deg tonite.

    Left today to ride Faulty under sunny skies and rising temperatures. Faulty was dry as a bone . Ended the ride with snow falling and diving temperatures. Made me forget the pain of the SS. The precip is great even though the trail selection will narrow. Wait, this isn't the Faulty Trail thread...

    3-4 in of very wet heavy snow on this side of the hill. About time. Looks like the foot hills are the game for a bit.

    Is that Celsius or Fahrenheit? Either way, I'm looking at putting ice in the Camelbak.

    That last Otero ride might be a little tough. Good news is, there's plenty of ice at Otero for your Camelback. Got the feeling Otero is done for the season.
