Sweet relief came in the form of some quick, expert wrenching by LBoH at Pro Bikes today and quick loop at Boyce to blow the funk out of my legs and give the Dos Niner a shake down ride for the SM100.
Last night my brakes were making a hay-noose noise and I was NOT feeling the love for my Dos Niner's Fox fork. But a quick stop by the shop and Tim (Little Ball of Hate) found the problem to be a jacked up spring in my rear brake. And the shock was just some simple adjustments that had me back on the right track. Thanks Tim!
The ride was a short and quick 12 mile loop just to keep the legs spanky to make sure the bike was rolling good for the weekend. The trails were so dry and so hard packed (for the first time this summer??) that they made the Ignitors feel like I was rolling big giant monster truck mudders. It was fun though, that's for sure. I hope this dry weather continues through next week and I'm not too wasted from the SM100 to enjoy copious amounts of brain massaging single track.
Did up a post on a the XXC blog today. There's a cool movie that looks to be coming out in the future. Check it out!
