    The Path steps up again....the only ones who had the SRAM HRD brake bleed kit in stock. I know bike shops can't carry everything, but there are enough SRAM-using roadies out there that it must be somewhat in demand. Yeah, I could have ordered it but like most things I'm sitting here this morning thinking about my mushy rear brake on the Kona, and figured I'd bleed it, and wanted to bleed it now.:p

    The actual bleed process is for another thread.:eek:

    The Path is making progress - they have expanded their web sales presence. However, comma, they gotta take the extra step. I clicked on "Derailleurs" and they show exactly 2 - both 12 speed, a SRAM GX and a SRAM NX. I find it hard to believe that's all they carry.

    The Path were amazing in my impulse buy documented elsewhere. Short story - I bought a Pivot Firebird 29 on impulse. Made a lot of changes to it. Rode it a dozen times. Ultimately didn't like it better than the Tracer I owned at the time. Asked them what recourse I had, fully expecting them to say, "sell it and buy something else." Nope. They said, "Try anything else we carry. If you like something, we will talk price." I traded for a Santa Cruz Megatower for full credit for the Pivot and everything I added to it. Unreal!

    Oh - Tustin shop, but that doesn't really matter. Thanks Tani!

    Went there when they reopened Thursday, and left my GT needing to have the BB chased. Headed for my car and was stopped by the Service Tech who said it would be done in 10 minutes, and I was on my happy way 10 minutes later with not that much lighter wallet. This is the frame after the mid-drive was removed.

    Hate to make this sound like an advertisement, but gotta tell the truth. My better half had a problem with her front tubeless setup and we stopped at the Path to have it remedied. Needless to say, they started on the problem immediately (bad valve) and we were on our way less than 15 minutes later.
