I need to get out on the WRR, I'll keep an eye out for the next after work ride.

Sorry you can't make it.
I'm going to hit this. Anyone else?

The route was Capt Ed's idea, and it was a true dual sport ride ! Glad you showed up Matt, now that you've found our lair you can never leave. Jeff, I'm shooting for another ride next Wednesday :)

As if I would want to leave the lair in the first place

Ride Fail

This one didn't make it to the blog.

Five hours of driving for five minutes of riding would hardly have been worth it without the hour of trailside repair work.

Hunter and I were meeting up with three guys we’d not met before, Eric, Dave and Henry. This was Hunter’s first ride of the year and an overnighter at that. When my front tire was flat after unloading I wasn’t worried. After all, I have the Tubliss system (http://nuetech.com/tubliss/). It took just a minute to find the hole, plug it and air up.

But a mile down the trail it was flat again — bad sign. “I think I can fix this and catch up,” I suggested but the guys were glad not only to wait but dive in with help. I could tell by their unrepeatable banter, as they set to work, they’d spent time together.







In spite of herculean efforts running through a plan A, B and maybe C, it was not to be. The inner Tubliss tube had a tear at the valve, rendering the system useless, and a spare tube (from Henry, I think) ended up being the wrong size. We were nonetheless inches from having it mounted when it pinched. That was that.

Thanks much for the help Eric, Dave and Henry. Hunter and I are planning a make-up ride.

Still haven't had a chance to ride with the group out here sense I moved and think I can make this coming Wednesday... would love to meet some of the Boise group.

Just need to know what type of ride so I can bring the correct bike... the CRF230L or the 650...

Bummer!
I too am using the Tubliss system with good results thus far. If you further diagnose why yours failed, please let me know. Did you check the pressure that day? Was the locknut tight against the rim? Could you have punctured the tube while repairing the hole or otherwise? Was it getting old beyond it's lifespan? I'm not sure what the lifespan is but replacements are available so maybe we should replace them after so many miles or time.

Georgie and me with 3 Fingers Rock way way off in the distance.


Closer on the other side.

I don't know about "death march", but it was definitely a good spirited ride. It only turned out to be 1034 miles from door to door for me. 407 the first day, 408 the second, then the third was a rest day with only 219 miles. I think we had about 700 miles in the dirt and around 300 of the highway droning. Great ride, I hope my video turns out of Ed trying to get stuck in the mud

I have more facts.

I do check pressure before every ride. I notice that Neutech says to replace the bladder every year and since they're only $10 I'll probably start doing it with each tire change.

Anyway, after a ride last year I noticed the high pressure stem was slightly off kilter. Bladder must have slipped. It was so slight I didn't worry about it.

In the course of hunting down a slow leak last week I figured I'd finally reset the bladder and liner so I took it all apart. The slow leak was a puncture in the tire that I plugged, easy enough, but re-mounting must have weakened an already stressed stem opposite of my goal.

Live and learn, as always.
