    Oil my chain with a mineral based Teflon lubricant. I need to cut the front derailer cable since it has lost its ferrule and the aircraft wire is rubbing the tire. What kind of crappy designer puts the cable between the tire and the mechanism? I think one of those dried shoots kicked up in between and pushed the ferrule against the tire. I stopped but not right away.
    I have had five more kick up in there the last couple days, and a dried mustard piece got into the rear derailer, with parts in the spokes. That piece almost did not come out and I almost had to get my hand dirty by grabbing the chain.

    Patience, Grasshopper. Good things come to those who wait.

    I figure that the term "Grasshopper" is appropriate, considering your locale.

    Pike Ultimate 29 (Debonair spring/Charger damper) 150 mm. I don't even know who it's for...

    Weezie will try it paired with her 130 coil. If she opts out of a 150 mm fork it'll be mine. She'll get my Pike RC 140. I'll have some kind of tune done on it for her. If she takes it?... Hmm :sneaky:

    Exciting times – squish upgrades for the house. Marital therapy, it is. :D

    One ride since I got back from Tahoe on 9/17 and 10 days since that one ride. Been sidelined with a sciatic issue in my left leg. The good news is that my physical therapist gave me the green light today to start pedaling again so I’ll be on the bike this weekend if not sooner.

    I want to know what the extremely loud CRACK!!! was that I heard was when I rode my bike the other day. It sounded like hitting a hammer forcefully on the frame but I was on pavement and it happened as I came to stop. I didn't see and cracks in the frame but now I am hearing what sounds like a broken spoke bouncing around in the back half of the bike. But, there are no broken spokes, not even any loose ones. I do feel a bit of a gritty sensation in the cranks. No idea if that is related but I will pull the cranks off tonight and see if the BB bearing are rough.

    That is pretty cool. Too bad they only make it in a 35mm bar diameter. Rode with a buddy today that has an S-Works stumpy. It came with a swat tool in the steerer tube. The cooler part was the inside the down tube storage under the bottle cage for a tube, co2’s, etc.
