    Yesterday I rode for 30 miles and listened to this creaky sound that was as annoying as it was mysterious. So today I did this (Outboard Bearing Bottom Bracket Service Guide. With Pics.). A short ride around the block makes me think that may have fixed it, but we'll see if it lasts.

    I left it alone in a refugee camp of other abandoned bikes while I demo'd a Pivot Mach 429, and 429 Carbon. About half way into the ride I was feeling cashed from riding too hard the day before, and my buddy asked what was wrong.
    "I feel like i have a cramp in my heart".... Which I kinda did,literally. He laughed and asked if I was missing my bike.
    Maybe I was, or maybe I could just feel my baby..... scared, abandoned, crying.
    Or maybe I'm just a nerd who likes to anthropomorphize.
    Good day kidz.
    Get out and ride.

    Yesterday I went out to the local pine forest single tracks for a ride on sun up.

    I have to say that it was a pretty awesome experience floating through a pine forest with the sun just starting to poke its head up. Heaps of wildlife skittering about, and not another rider on any of the trails. Usually I am only out on a bike ride this early in the mornings if I am commuting to work, or competing in a race/pre-race training session where there isnt much time to 'stop and smell the roses'.

    After an epic season of training/xc racing, with many high points, and low points, it has been awesome and refreshing to jump on the bike to focus just on riding and rekindling my passion for the MTB.

    So I guess technically speaking I didnt do anything TO my bike, but I did something FOR my bike. I rode it, and I enjoyed every moment. The worst part is that I now have to wait an entire working week before I can head out and recharge again. Damn work.

    Flushed my brakes and bled and adjusted them, installed new pads, cleaned it, moved the handlebars a little bit and readjusted my shifters/brake levers/grips.

    After riding a buddy's bike with a shorter, more upright cockpit, I put a short stem on. Lubed up the cable to my dropper post as it was sticking, and mostly just ogled her in the garage...

    Changed my stem to a 35mm. LOVE IT.





    My bike on the left with the 200mm HS1 rotor, Tim's bike on the right with the 185mm OEM rotor.

    I ride my Titus SB everywhere, road, canals, horse trails, XC, AM. Now that it's getting dark quicker, I've added some lights to it.

    Replaced DU bushings on Fox Shox with new polymer bushings. Got rid of slop in suspension and made it easier to replace next time.

    I love the 35mm Straitline stem, one of my favorite bike parts of all time Nice upgrade!

    Today I replaced the front tube and rear brake pads on my Heckler.

    For the Butcher today: I removed a sheared off high limit screw from the rear derailleur, replacing it with one from another derailleur, cleaned the der. and chain, reinstalled everything and replaced the cable, re-adjusted, lubed and now off to Horsetooth
