    Rode it!
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    get the eggbeaters

    should be fun.

    any opinions on eggbeater vs candy? I like the idea of clip in from any side, and I never ride unclipped, so I'm leaning towards eggbeater, any one not like them?
    I have both. They are great. Barely notice any difference. Only advise i'll give is DON'T buy the cheap ones. I don't know which i have. As they change and i don't pay attention, I know i have one pair of eggbeater and two sets of smarty's. About $120 a set. I also have one left eggbeater and one right smarty. Those were the under $50 a set and they lasted about a year.

    Picked Chewy up from the ICU (wheels dished, trued, hubs rebuilt)

    Gave a little TLC at home (bleed brakes, clean cog + chain, replace pads)

    Short break-in ride around the hood - tomorrow it's saddle time for some black diamonds!

    I hope it goes well for you. Had issues with my fork, not really resolved as they should have been. My fork L + R side are not operating together well. Different compression, different return. Already replaced the orginal Recon Silver because it failed 2 weeks into ownership.

    Good luck.

    So I decided to see what it's like to have a SS, and rode my commuter 12-13 miles around the Denver Highlands (lots of hills) and left my commuter bike in 1 gear the whole time.. It was awesome!! I am beginning to understand this whole SS cult!!

    Oh, nothing bad. Lost the front on some mud and managed to get a foot out just as the bike slammed down on my right thigh. Snapped the shifter right off, and left a nice bruise and abrasion on my thigh.

    All part of the fun.

    Let me be the first to say, I hope your shifter heals with Godspeed!

    Thanks! Luckily for me, I could still ride the bike for another half hour after busting the shifter off.

    I wrote this a week back or so.

    Just stuff to fix the bike.
    Multi tool, tube, powerlink and a pump.
    No first aid stuff; if I die, I die, but if the bike breaks and I can't finish the ride then that would really suck!

    2 days ago: Blue Thunder (2006 Motobecane Elite FS) I changed the 1" riser bar and added cruiser handlebars and attached an old metal basket to carry stuff. Also had to replace a few chain links after breaking one of the masterlinks (yeah I had two on there LOL) Repositioned the light from the neck to the center hole of the front suspension fork. Changed the rear derailleur back to the old Shimano Altus. Last weekend he got a bright blue pair of 700c x 40 tires and some comfort grips

    Yesterday: Midas (2004 Schwinn Frontier FS) Adjusted the rear right brake and had to add a washer to stiffen it due to the brake's mounting hole being worn. Trued the rear rim better so I can use the rear brakes better. raised the neck to it's max, debating if I want to change it out. Adjusted the saddle (Cloud 9) about a degree or so upward and a tad forward. Earlier in the week I converted him back to 26" from a 69er setup and did some repairs to the original suspension fork. Had to file down the stanchions to smooth out the suspension, lubed up the slider arms and the fork is bouncy again.

    Today, Blue Thunder and I will be going to wash laundry so I'll be hauling the trailer.
    29" Tires looking to buy:

    Schwalbe Big Apples
    Continental Travel Contact/Cruise Contact

    I cleaned my bike up a bit. It rained yesterday so all the trails are a bit muddy I'm sure, so I took the day off to clean up my bike from a little mishap I had on my last night ride involving a small creek and a lot of mud!
