    Little Moab... of the Front Range

    Took a little ride with some Front Range dignitaries this morning. We visited a little spot I call "Little Moab". OK, really little...

    Scrubby gives it a smooth roll:


    and then JB takes a different tack:



    In other news, JB gets points for flair:

    Are now peanut butter. Good thing he already has a kid.

    I'm not sure if "style points" is the appropriate caption there....

    Looks like you got that flat tire fixed eh...damn east coast deadbeat left you high and dry.

    Nice shots, wish I was there to enjoy it in person.

    yep. swapped over the rubber bullit right before the big november sedona trip i had. full week there. no problems. kept same rotor sizes. same power, but less hand fatigue, and way better modulation than my already pretty d@mn good mech setup. loved it.

    soon as i got home from the trip, i ordered a set for the Pitooty as well. (i'm stealing that name for it now, btw.) had some issues with cutting and bleeding on that set, but it was all due to my own errors, not any thing of avid's. luckily easily fixed. whew. 05 juicy-5 setup on both rides now. sold the old mech stuff for a bit over half the cost of the new!

    when is the new one coming in, any idea yet?

    if you're free to ride when i'm there, i'll bring both bikes and you can borrow one. jsut remember they're built a little lighter than your rides tend to be.

    5 degree rise 90mm Titec ti weighs about 170gms with bolts; just buffed the logos off with scotchbrite. don't remember the exact model name. no longer made. they pop up on e-bay now an then, for waaaaaaya cheaper than they retailed for. think they sold new for about 150. easily found now for 50 if you're patient.

    i swap this one out for a thomson now and then (only diff is the thomson is a 0 rise, so i run an extra 5mm spacer underneath to get the same bar position. i'm small enough that i can't really tell any difference in terms of stiffness. steering still feels extremely precise.

    got one on my roadbike as well.
