  1. And close some as well Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. What is in the house when I bought it is a Carrier Infinity system. We did not replace the whole system as it was not needed since it was installed fully less than 10 yrs ago. we ended up replacing the compressor. That is what failed. Not just failed but became crispy burnt Maybe from the storm sometime Wed or early Thursday? Christian Brothers came out and did the work for this. They ended up cutting about $350 off the initial quote since they couldn't get it fixed immediately. Under normal circumstances, like not late on a Friday afternoon on a 3 day weekend, it would not have taken this long. This part was amazingly expensive to replace. I did call around to other places but being a long weekend there was not alot to be done for us. I was impressed with Stans although they did not do the work. They had some good offers on their site and the guy I spoke with was very nice and polite and patiently listened to me. Anyways, that's life and I am thankful it was not worse and thankful we could make it happen. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Pockets are WAYYYYYYY lighter , air is cooler and the ladies in the house are happy. Son still has not noticed any sort of change in temp in the last 4 - 5 days. So proud of him. My Little Lebowski Urban Achiever Thanks All
  4. All things considered. This is a 1st world problem and could always be way worse. It is amusing in a way since I am not sure my son has even noticed Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. OMan! Right. Woke this AM and saw sun. Fu#k me is all I said. Well good luck. Hope it is something easy and cheap for yall. I've been flabbergasted by the people who have reached out with various offers. Blown away and touched Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. Thank very much. I will call Hank today. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. Well called a few places. 5ish on long weekend isnt primo timing. All told me they will send someone next week. I'm going to pick up my trailer and use that for the family. It is what it is. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. A company came out and looked awhile ago. They dont have the compressor or the condenser and said it will be sometime next week , maybe. But they will call us back when they can. I describe myself as sticky and numb right now Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. Picked a great weekend for the condenser on the house AC unit to explode and not be available to next week to replace
  10. Thats quite an achievement at your age
  11. It was mangled up, not just missing a board. Should be easy to fix. With the rain we are about to get and a long weekend I will be happy to go knock that out this weekend if you want. Not a problem. Let me know
  12. Speaking of wood bits and Gumdrop... be careful with the wood bridge there.. 1/2 of it is gone. It was darkish when I went through there so didnt get a great look. But it is trashed now. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Thank you both .. Chief,, that story is pretty cringe worthy. Thats up there with catching ones finger in the spinning rotor. Back to my nut issue. It is literally off by maybe a MM if that much. So snugging up the preload so there is no knock or bump at all , nothing then it is too stiff to move my bars. They do not freely move but the HS doesnt knock But if I do the preload where my bars move nice and free, there is a bump. Newish lower bearing , top bearings are the same as ever. If I reassemble the headset there are no issues until the preload bolt is engaged. Id almost rather have the slightest knock to have a freely moving bar. A stiff one is scary. OK,, Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results,, so let me take this apart again , maybe this time Ill get lucky. Thanks
  14. Im sure that Cedar Park likes the free ad though. Maybe it is referring to the new part of the trail but used that picture from that spot instead? Owell.
  15. Is it possible that if a star nut is not 100% level in the fork that it makes adjusting the headset difficult. Mine is off by a hair. less than a MM When my headset snugs up , the steering is stiff... when I back off the adjuster bolt a 1/4 turn loose the steering is smooth. The only thing I can find "off" is the star nut seems a tad high in the front.
  16. RIGHT! Watched 3 games yesterday and 2 today. There is a match on Monday and then Friday. So odd watching with no crowds but so what. During the Dortmund game yesterday you can hear a Schalke player suggest to Haaland he should go @#$& his grandmother. Wouldnt hear that over a crowd.
  17. Is it possible to do a skinny but anchor it like the jumps above Snail? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  18. Guilty. Someone here called me out on it during a ride and my stomach sunk. I told him it was intentional to test traction.
  19. The oddest thing so far is that I had to run out this AM and there was zero to pleasant traffic on 183/620/45 Looked like a Saturday morning at 7AM
  20. We have learned the hard awkward way watching movies with my kids lately that 80\90s R movies or even PG movies are way more R than movies today. I also seem to have forgotten how raunchy some of my favorite or memorable movies are. I cant believe my parents let us watch what we watched.
  21. 1. Awesome! 2. Happy for you 3. Hate you Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  22. @Quixoft FYI -- in the Marketplace section you can post for sale items and non bike items
  23. I am that uber rare guy who cannot stand dropper posts (Useless Crutches) I am in the minority for sure. That said I am a fan of PNW Components. They announced today a new program to sell refurbished droppers. Worth checking out if so inclined , good to see a company keeping their products from the trash pile https://www.vitalmtb.com/news/press-release/PNW-Announces-Refurbished-Dropper-Post-Program,3593
  24. I've been there countless times over the years. I thi k over by Devils Rock is the only place for no bikes. The other side is allowed Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  25. To us, we see a log that is laying across a trail,, or a "pile" of random rocks between trees and we ride it and leave it. Now if my mom was walking that same trail sees it as a hazard. She might move it If the features looked more legit, like what has been done at Walnut instead of looking like a random log or like my kid stacked rocks then maybe the hikers wouldnt move that stuff
