    Took it for a ride

    Well, I finally took my Faith out for a ride at Bolton. The most fun I ever had on a bike, and I did a lot better than I thought I would. I kept accidentally hitting the left shifter and changing gears And had a few drivetrain problems, nothing serious. I got a pinch flat on my front tire, I was running too low a psi It's kind of scary, but my last run, when they were putting the bike on the lift behind me, one of them said that the wheel was completely out, so at the top I did a quick check and it just seemed a little loose, so I tightened it as much as I could, but didnt notice that the axle was totally out of the left side, and wasnt in the hanger So I dont know how long it had been out, but it rode fine like that somehow, and I rode it hard, glad nothing went wrong The rim's bent, I know that, hopefully nothing else is...

    It was muddy as ****, its coated with mud, but I cant find my camera

    Okay, I guess the rim isnt bent...? I managed to get the wheel back on after I took it off, and the only problem is the pads are too close the the rotor and it rubs, and the levers cant be pulled very far because of it. How would I fix this?

    I have the exact same problem on my faith. I tired to push the pistons in but the brakes are self adjusting so they change again.
