    I looked sadly at the one I broke on Thursday, and then rode the other one.

    I took a "cute" pic of it to post on another thread.

    I will be finalizing the art for the design of my headbadge for both of my bikes later this week. I'll post here when I finish them.

    Great idea for a thread.

    adjusted the cables running down my down tube. They had way too much slack in them. Zip-tied and retightened the clamps and my baby was good to go.....back in the garage. No time to ride today. Hopefully sometime this week.

    Tortured Chewy today. Put 700 x 35 tires on my spare wheels, and mounted them. (Chewy is quite fond of the Easton Havens and was not exactly thrilled about mounting the old OEM bonty wheels (wouldn't keep still/had to fight him), but came round when I mentioned new shoes (the Kenda Couriers)) Removed the front caliper.

    Tightened up the fork tension and took off on 45 mile paved trail epic.
    (ok the Epic part is a certain joke).

    Butt sore, typing this from a stomach laying position.

    Put the new grips on, and installed the Cane Creek HTA kit. Now I'm at 67* (in theory). The iPhone protractor measured it at 66*

    Either way it's nice and slack for my AM style of riding!

    Only got to test drive it for 5 minutes on a little pump track, but it feels AWESOME!!

    I opened a nice new box when I got home from work. Inside that box was a nice new shifter to replace the one that was unceremoniously removed by my right thigh last Thursday.

    Tonight I may just put it on the bike, or maybe not....

    Finally the one year of components warranty is over, by the way I am riding spec epic 29er. As you all know their stock thing aren't great especially the hubs! So today I have ordered hopes hubs with flows ex rims, new 50mm stem and world force 780 bar! I am not as lucky as you guys, your country has real mountain! As in Singapore we only have on "short hill" so most of it I consider as xc courses. I would like to have an xc bike efficiency and am bike handling! cheer

    Took the fork out to do some measurements. Just ordered me my first new part ever. Bought my bike used and all the upgrades were used parts too.

    Installed new Hayes brakes (so long elixirs!!!) A new saddle, and a wider 720 bar. Feels like a whole new bike!
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Midas (Schwinn Frontier FS) had his neck changed, changed his tires to some Kenda Komforts 26" x 1.95" , and tonight he will have a new pair of LED lights mounted. Took a ride across town as well to pick up some new pairs of pants. Rode only about 30 blocks today and it was very windy. Had ordered a new chain as well, but waiting a little while before I switch them out.
    Finally rolling on 29" x 2.0" Schwalbe Big Apples

    Bought her a new stem. I am going from a pretty long stem to one much shorter. Can't wait to see the difference in feel... Oh, and I rode a short ride near my home (11 mile out and back) just to get a little cardio, but it was cold out (for California) at like 60 degrees.

    Same stem mounted, just a new top cap. Other one was a beater. The old stem was a 110, new one an 80. Bike feels a lot different. I hope to ride day after Christmas in some great single track so I will get to try out the new reach.

    Today I took my Hayes Dyno Sports off the bike, cleaned/rebuilt and replaced. I also changed out the pads and bleed the lines.

    Swapped out my SRAM 1050 cassette for a SRAM 1070 on my Eason Havens, added the 1050 back to the OEM Bonty wheels (now have 700X35 tires for road riding)

    Side note, I kept the front brake off for a 40 mile road ride, didn't really mind it so much.

    Began to strip the paint off my Giant Trance X1 frame. I plan to go to bare, polished aluminum. I am going to try to mask off a cool design and media blast accents in the frame. I will maybe start a thread with photos as I progress.

    All I did tonight was spray a little Aircraft Remover on the top tube to see how it works. It looks like it shouldn't be too hard.

    Yesterday I started putting on new brake and shift cables and housing, and today hopefully I'm going to build a bike stand so I can do maintenance more easily, and then finish the cables. Lots on the plate. Pics to come when I finish the cables (they're all red and pretty) and stand, hopefully I can manage to do that in the next day or so.

    I opened up my fork, installed new Enduro seals and wipers, and changed the fork oil. It was my first time servicing the fork on over three years (whoops...), but man oh man was it worth the time and effort. The fork works better than new now. It is whole-lee-crap smoove. Now I just need the trails to dry out so I can go ride it.

    Put a new chain and cassette on the Rize 2, got 6 months out of the last one, and the Salsa is in need of the same after the same time. The desert dust takes its toll...
    Tore the rear derailleur cable housing last ride, so I put a new Teflon XTR cable and housing on it instead of the Jag, (got an X0 rear mech on it). Now she shifts better than the XTR on the Salsa!
    Didn't have time to ride it after that, so tomorrow I hope...
    It's all Here. Now.

    Took her on a long ride. Raced in a short circuit 4x aprint series and had a blast. Road through a puddle of ocean water and got the bike covered in salt so gave her a good bath after. Great day!

    I'm one of those types who gets miles and miles out of gear. My Deore 555 rotors had worn so thin in the 7 years I've owned them that I ordered a new set which I intalled this weekend. Gave the brakes a general once over, pulled out the pads, cleaned stuff up. That's one really good reason to avoid sintered metal pads. The organic ones wear out instead of wearing out your rotors.

    I would have gone riding but we now have about 2 feet of snow. (Ontario.....)

    What did you do to/for your bike today?

    It was the her true first ride. A mix of paved trails and cross country connecting them for 17 miles. With the rain last night, it was muddy and she handled like a champ.
