    i checked and inflated tires of all three bikes. each has been sitting for a while since my injury and the singlespeed is seriously collecting dust. also, air pressure check on the hardtail's fork--all this time i've been running it a little too stiff. the dualie got a good wipe down and quick look-see since i'll be riding tomorrow.

    took a photo of the serial number on my bottom bracket shell just to have in case the unspeakable and unimaginable happens. i should have done this before i rode the bike out of the shop.

    Dropped it off at the shop for F/R suspension service. Side note about how great my LBS is. The manager meet me 3 hours before they opened today so that I could drop it off on my way to the airport.

    Replaced my broken front derailleur mount on my Borealis Echo (my winter rig). Another reason to convert to 1x. The front der frequently gets packed with snow and ice and won't move without a firm tap from my foot. Enough of those firm taps (3 seasons) and you get a broken mount. Easy enough fix. Although the damn mount was $50. It seems like such a simple little aluminum thing - two bolts and a pivot - to cost $50. The same day I bought it I also bought a light switch for my living room that was 79 cents. Got me to wondering. Economies of scale I reckon.

    New fender, Wolf Tooth 49tGC, new grips, and some new bling from Kustom Caps. All done in my garage in 20 degree temps. I really need to get my kerosene heater looked at.

    Ahh.. did you know that Thomson had a recall on those face plates way back in the early 2000's. The bad ones have a machined groove on the inside that didn't sit flush to the bar. Just send the old one to them and they'll send a new revised one back, no charge. Happened to me way back.

    Set my son’s bike up tubeless today. It went smoothly aside from the fact that I could get the bead to seat with my pump. And I couldn’t find a presta/schrader adapter to use my compressor. I ended up driving on icy roads to my LBS for a $1 adapter.

    Just remove the valve and use a blow nozzle to seat the tire. Reinstall valve and pump up with pump.

    No need for a presta/schrader adapter.

    I will say reducing to 140mm tightened up my steering and helps climbing.
    I'm still learning about this but can't you just put it on lockout when climbing?

    This was actually last week but I changed the rear shifter cable and it's so much nicer now. I kept messing with the derailleur thinking it was that when it was the right cable. I don't think a bad shifter cable is mentioned enough for beginners when it comes to shifting problems in the back. No front shifter cable problems yet probably because it's not used as much.

    Relacing my back wheel with some decent spokes. Bought bike used and broke two spokes. 2's my limit before action must be taken!

    Just put a new seat and flats on my sons bike. Ordered a e10 dropper for him. He doesn't ride that much so figure start him off on something cheap and see if he likes it. I know he will but who knows...

    Nice. I like the Fiamma racks. I put some Fiamma arms on my Thule.

    EDIT: Or is that a Fiamma? It looks a little different, but I know they also have a lot of RV specific stuff too...

    It looks like one to me too, but there's no manf/part/serial # on it. Maybe just made for Winnie.

    Pulled loads of thorns out of the tyres. Most were little things that probably didn't make it all the way through the tyre, but three of them were sizeable and would have stuck through by a good 5 mm. No hisses upon removal - yay latex tubes!

    Rear brakes pads died from mud early into a ride yesterday, so I had to ride for 2 hours without touching the rear brake for fear of ploughing furrows in the rotor. Today revealed only one tiny gouge on the rotor, which I reckon was when the pad spreader spring chewed itself up. A light rub with a whetstone sorted the gouge out, and the rear brakes got new pads, caliper realignment, and a rotor truing.

    Graunched my outer chainring on concrete yesterday, so filed three teeth back into some sort of acceptable profile. I was shocked at how soft the alloy on a big XT (3X) chainring is. Also found out by chance I'd knacked the chain somehow* - noticed the end of an outer plate had been bent a little, and it probably wouldn't have been long before that broke on the trail. Dodged a bullet there.

    Before yesterday's ride I got around to implementing a Seth's Bike Hacks trick, which was to stick a bit of skateboard grip tape on the dropper remote lever. I've got one of those Reverb plunger remotes, and it's cold and muddy here at the moment, and though I haven't really been having any issues with the remote lever in these conditions, the little bit of grip tape is a huge improvement to the operation of the thing. Wish I'd have done it sooner. Meanwhile, I'll be closely monitoring the wear in the thumb of my right-hand glove...

    * Can't have been the concrete incident, I was in the middle chainring for that and the outer chainring stepped in as a bashguard.

    Couldn't ride today because the trails were thawing and snow was melting, so I washed my bike for the first time, ever, adjusted the pivot bearings, and lubed the chain. Played with portrait mode on my phone while it. You can tell where the software gets confused, but it's a cool little toy to play with.

    Downgraded drive train, fork, pedals, and wheels. Upgraded tires, seat post, stem, and bars. Main bike is now more personalized and has parts interchangeable with my other favorite bikes.

    2018 will see the beginning of the 3rd year on my '16 Trek Fuel EX 9.9. I try to ride my bikes a full 4 seasons before replacing them.

    While each of the previous 2 seasons have seen loads of chain, brake pad, front ring, and a few cassette replacements, this is the first full drivetrain replacement. I am going from a full Shimano XT to Sram GX Eagle. This way I will run a 34 front instead of the 32. Gear inch wise, I will have the same low end but gain substantially through the top end.

    Also, each season I changed all the dust seals/wipers on the fork and shock. Last year I sent the shock to DirtLabs to have them work their magic on it. It was great! I sent it back again along with the Pike RCT3 and the Fox Transfer dropper post. It all needed new seals, oil, nitrogen charging, etc.

    I am also changing all of the suspension bearings and ABP pivots as well as a new BB (changing standards from Shimano to Sram, remember?). Brake pads/rotors are being replaced (keeping Shimano XT stuff--I love it). Brake fluid will also be changed out. All new cables and housing are being put on too. And new bearings/springs in the eggbeater pedals.

    Basically, it is a full tune plus. It will wind up being a full rebuild; completely striped down and all parts inspected/replaced/lubed. Yes, it is going to be a little expensive, but its worth it. I ride a lot and will get my money's worth for sure.

    At the beginning of each year I do this stuff. Normally it all happens during ski season, so I don't miss the bike at all. This year we are having a very bad ski season--worst in 38 years. I normally would have skied almost 25 days by now and I have yet to go! Not good.

    Good news is, I get the bike back today!

    I had to replace my brand new chain yesterday. First ride on it and it snapped twice in 10 minutes.😡 I’m never buying another Shimano chain as long as I live.

    I replaced it at the same time as I added my 49t rear cog. It was a straight forward install, with the included pin, and it broke in two different places. I replaced it with a SRAM chain and rode yesterday afternoon with no issue.

    If he times it right he can hide the goods and exchange it, walk into the house with a box for her. Good luck though, I’ve been in situations waiting for a delivery like that on pins and needles at every truck sound passing by.

    I nominate a local collection site like our local gas station instead of home delivery.
    How sad are we?

    I’ve had packages delivered to my local UPS or FedEx outlet. More out of convenience and worry free of someone stealing it off the porch. It would work for this though.

    I have my expensive packages delivered to my work. If work is closed the shipper will keep the package until it can be delivered and signed off for. Business deliveries are NEVER left on a porch or door-side in public view.

    All my bikes are clean and ready to be ridden. One bike is just sitting patiently waiting to get built up. Only one problem. Weather happens.

    Tubeless conversion on my new Jeffsy. By far the most difficult one I've ever done. Love the bike but not so sure about the DT Swiss M1900 wheels.

    You are a bigger man that I. Letting her go is one thing but to a friend and then on top of that seeing her with him on occasion. That would kill me.

    Well, that they say can hurt even more. You drove her to switch teams and then were big enough to hand her off to another. Much kudos to you my friend.

    Separated shoulder 10 days ago so on the mend...converting my Heckler from 3X9 to 1X9. Also working on the new Kona Process that pulled a stick into rear derailleur and fukked it up on 5th ride. Have a Park derailleur hangar alignment tool on order to see if I can salvage the GX12 derailleur. At least one bike will be ready when I'm healed!

    “raining cats and dogs” may refer to a storm with wind (dogs) and heavy rain (cats). If it is raining cats and dogs, it is raining unusually or unbelievably hard.

    Nothing much, replaced the pins on the pedals, lubed the chain and gave the bike a decent wipe down and took it out for a few hours.

    Did the 54T ratchet upgrade on my DT350 and successfully swapped out my rear 180mm rotor for a 203mm. Unsuccessfully tried to swap out my front 180mm rotor for a 203mm, I bought the wrong f*cking adapter. Hello $10 shipping because I need it by Wednesday, and the closest bike shop that has one is an hour away. I get off too late at night to make it there during the week.

    It's a good upgrade, either way. I've seen people comment they can't tell much difference. The internet being what it is, I have to wonder if they've ever even seen a 54T ratchet outside of pictures, much less ridden one. The more POE I try, the more I want...
