    I thought it was a sad commentary that the most popular topics in "Passion" were "How many bikes". Not riding, or trails, or working on bikes, or riding with friends, etc.

    Those threads are there but these 4 were the most popular this week.

    6BC a.k.a. 6 hours of Briar Chapel

    Six hour race today. I had a blast, got in eight laps on a six mile course. everyone says I get an honorary nine. I would have made nine but on lap five I flatted and had to walk 1.5-2mi back out of the woods and get the sealant removed, rim strip put in and a tube and I still only missed the cut off for lap nine by three minutes. For an idea of what the trail was like, watch Nicole's videos. Her chunk and my chunk are very similar.

    I just got back into town from a long weekend away in the high desert. Did a little fire road exploring ride. Really neat to see the geography transition from high desert into forest.

    True, that would be too much heat for me. OTOH, I do my share of rides in 85/85 (over 85F and over 85% of humidity) that can get pretty nasty, too. We have a little bit of everything here in New England.

    I'm sure there will be a ride of sorts on Turkey Day. It may degenerate into something entirely something else, you can never tell about holiday rides.

    I plan on it. Then we have the annual Raleigh-Go-Round the day after. Still sore from my race yesterday and today is a screen reclaim day. Go figure.

    I have about three pictures. There's a ton from other people that were snapping them. I can find some of the links on the local forum and pick the good ones and post them. It will be roughly a million I have to sift through since all the people in my area put every single picture they took up instead of posting only the good ones. The race was a blast. Even with an OTB and a flat that caused me to hike 1.5mi out of the woods to get it fixed.

    Beer, huh? I've always thought of beer as an everyday treat/refreshment/reward.

    Why not have something a little more "special" to drink with your holiday turkey?

    Finally have the tires mounted. Stan's tomorrow. With the TLR strip these where a bi+ch to mount though they are holding air which I'm impressed especially the front cause it's a Sworks. After all was said and done... btw I almost lost my temper for the record, I still mounted the rear in the wrong direction, LOL FFFFFFUUUUUUUU!

    Thank you LBS for letting me work there instead of my house which sucks.

    Nice tires, I like Specialized. They work well out here and hold up pretty decent, although the sworks don't fare so well.

    Instead of rim strips, I just use 2-3 wraps of 3M electrical tape pulled nice and snug with all of the air bubbles carefully worked out.

    The rocks around here aren't sharp and jagged for the most part. I've had good luck with Sworks in the past and anything is better for sidewalls than the schwalbe tires.

    _____

    Has anyone run the GC facing the wrong direction? Wondering if this will be okay, stupid I know but, the GC has different compounds on the middle/transition lugs being soft on the front side, hard on the back. Insert Specialized term for that but that's what it is. Not to mention the angle of the side lugs. Just wondering if it will roll faster/slower. How it will effect the braking? Meh.....

    ^ Not sure about GCs but some other models and brands including Specialized are commonly used in reverse.

    I say finish the mount and ride it as is. Report your findings once you have a feel for it. Perhaps GCs are indeed reversible?

    Only Hutch knows.... eventually

    Just flip it around, it'll be a little messy, but the Stan's should work in your favor when trying to get the last bit of bead over the rim. It'll always bug you if you don't.

    As for this. First I tried the Stans kit which worked ok. So this time around since I have TLR rims, I got the strips for them along with the stems. Simple stupid. No tape, no worry about bubbles, UST bead. For something that looks so flimsy and cheap, it actually works great.

    The only gripe I would say about the TLR system was that there is no direction in what way the rim strip should go on. Both edges look the same but one lets the tire bead mount perfect.

    There's no Stans in them at the moment. They are pumped up to the max 65PSI and holding air perfectly. This should help them stretch out a little. I need to find someone with a valve removal tool since the LBS couldn't find theirs tonight to add the Stans cause I really, really do not want to pop any part of the bead off.

    I went with the control casing for the rear in the CG. I wouldn't trust a Sworks for a rear.

    From eye to eye the Spec Purg 2.3 is the same casing width as my RARA's in 2.25. The GC 2.3 is smaller then the Rara 2.25.

    They'll almost certainly pop off (into the channel) when you let the air out of them but they'll also probably go right back on when you reinflate them.

    I just use pliers to get the vales out. Works perfectly...

    Might be in your best interest to pop it loose now, as opposed to waiting until you're out on the trail, at nightfall, in the rain, and realize that maybe you should have put some stronger levers in your bag. Ok, no Stan's yet, use some soapy water. I'd personally want to make sure that I could pull the bead over, now, instead of later.

    hutch check this vid out, this is how i did mine the first time and every time since. especially now that you have the bead seated, its really easy to pop one bead, add the stans, and reseat the bead. i dont own a compressor so i had no choice, and after doing this i was amazed at just how easy it really was.
