    Because we can

    Just letting everyone know that we are taking the ElConq out to Fruita to ride this morning. I finally finished up a ton of work and now it's Spring. Hopefully, we'll get pics if we're not having too much fun to stop.

    this scared me

    Good ride, but it is definitely Spring - the trails were MUCH busier than in March. Ran into a Family (Dad, Mom, and Teen boy) out riding brand new Yeti's. The mother's brakes were squealing and she was stopped and complaining about it. I asked if I could help and she said she had figured out how to stop the shuddering but it was still making noise. Then she said she would just try more - at this point she opened a baggie, pulled out a bottle of tri flow and squirted it onto her caliper, rotor, and pads. I kind of freaked out on her since you could seriously die on these trails with no brakes.
