    • Years ago a friend’s M Austin apt building burned about as completely as you can get. It must have been crazy high temp blaze. The one and only item left was his titanium road bike frame that was holding up a section of a wall. It was a bare frame. The wheels and all the components including the headset and bottom bracket were gone. Eerie thing seeing this frame hanging in mid air 20’ up. Never found a trace of his DBR carbon MTB.

    • I decided to get my bike ready for the mountains next week: Kept the 36T on the front, threw a 10-speed cassette on the back and zip-tied the shift cable to it. I am guessing the 1:1 ratio will be better for climbing than the 36:15 combo as a single.  Gonna give it a spin here for a few days and shake it out. Guessing I need to get used to the lack of suspension, it's gonna feel like 1997 all over again.
    • Its not a 100% set time.  It ebbs a bit from when everyone arrives and then collectively decides to roll.  All that said, I usually try to arrive around 5:10-15 and see who begins to gather up.  Quite often a few will roll up from an 'early lap' and its not uncommon to head out for the 'fast lap' around 5:25-30'ish.   The "legends lap" comprised primarily of the old-guard R&I'rs usually has a pretty similar schedule.  But can be a few minutes later because most are coming from work, and might be stuck in traffic a bit.  But generally, I'd say the same thing for both groups.  5:15 arrive---5:30 head out.  +/- minutes.  YMMV Personally I'd love to see more people come out and join in.  ITs always a fun time no matter which group you want to jump into.  Bring a lawn chair and a cold 6pk Later, CJB
    • IME, bike companies are extremely generous with these things. A simple email to Camelback with a photo of the tear will likely result in them sending you a new one hastily. they don't want you buying another hydration pack from a different company. your loyalty as a customer is worth far more to them than the cost of making and shipping a new product to you.
    • What time is the first rollout today?  Was hoping to start with the faster group to see how long I can hold on.

      What's the deal with this?  I posted a link from Craigslist in the Craigslist thread and I got a penalty point?
      Thanks for looking into this.

      Soft muddy trails even with the afternoon sunshine.
      I'd give it a day or two and the hero dirt will appear! Our Wednesday group ride is cancelled but we will do an urban ride from the shop instead.

      Vegas MTB
      and better than anything, if you go to the Grand Canyon while in Vegas, keep right on driving into Flagstaff and ride Schultz Pass, that's actually great riding! Fact:Flagstaff was Tom Walton's inspiration for Bentonville AR, it's really fun riding and free camping too.
