    Put a new set of grips on. I suppose that was more for me than the bike.

    Needed to try some with a better palm swell. Old wrist injury is starting to bother me.

    Off the bike for almost a month after minor shoulder separation. Lubed my chain, check shock pressure, went for a ride! Shoulder still hurts and after today I think ill wait another week to ride.
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Today, I listed a whole bunch of crap on ebay so I can pay for new brakes. Yesterday I installed a new crank. XO Carbon DH crank. Yum.

    Rode it then swapped the revelation 140 for a revelation rlt with the travel set at 130... it seems weird to move down in travel but the bar height and bb height just feel better now...

    Did some maintenance today. Rebuilt both hubs, cleaned and repacked both pairs of bearings, adjusted derailleurs, will disassemble and detail tomorrow then readjust any thing that needs it.

    Took off my creaky race face crank, front derailleur and front shifter and replaced it all with an XO DH crank and E13 LG1 chain guide,

    Also replace my Avid XX brakes with BB7s. I think I'm done with hydraulic brakes for now.

    Still need to swap the 36t ring with a 32. 36 is a little tall for me on a 1x10.

    Only 5 more weeks till I can ride...

    Cleaned and lubed. Then adjusted saddle angle. it was dipped way forward, wonder if that contributed to going over the handlebars?

    I put the ice spikers on the 26er. Can't wait for some ice, but they are calling for rain tomorrow.

    I cleaned the bottom bracket area on my frame between the cranks with a toothbrush, then squirted some lube there.

    Picked up some new Maxxis Crossmarks for the KHS. I didn't have time to swap them out today, maybe tomorrow. I also scoped out a possible new bike.

    Last night I readjusted the air pressure/sag on my RP23 per the guide in Niner's Encyclopedia, changed the air pressure in the tires per Stan's NoTubes tire pressure recommendation for ZTR rims (weight divided by 7 and then -1 for the front and +2 for the rear), installed my new XT Trail pedals, and put the cleats on my new Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduro III shoes. Rode today in the low 60's and sunny in Denver and with all the changes, I had a great ride and a big grin on my face!

    Brushed off the dirt and sold it.


    But it's OK - I have another one.

    (and that AC rear wheel is not long for this world, but it has served me very well these past 5 years. The front AC, not so much.)
