probably buried too deep in my other blather, so let me repost my question..

repacking pedal bearings... the kind with like 26 tiny bearings and adjustable cones...

its been so long I've forgotten, how much grease should you use on those loose bearings-n-cones setups? I pretty much filled the cone area with grease, then dropped the bearings into it and screwed the other cone down, expecting that cone to push the bearings into place, but I'm betting some floated in the grease, as it feels really horrible now....

should I instead like qtip the fixed cone with a thin layer of grease and carefully place the bearings in their little circle with a toothpick or something, then goober more grease onto the adjuster cone, and screw it down?

The way I've always done it is to put a real thin layer of grease in to hold things steady, insert bearings, THEN goop in the grease.

Old rule of thumb: everything packed tight then remove 1 bearing.

I've used Desenex liquid spray. I've tried the Desenex powder and spray powder and they're useless. Tinactin didn't work either.

I've climbed Encinal on a pedal bike exactly once. Yikes... 5mi and about 1400' of vertical. I was very glad my bike has a triple up front. ~40min up and 10min to get back down Mulholland.

Sounds like climbing Mt. Diablo up here. An hour and a half up, 15 minutes down.

Evil Genius, I keep those baby wipes in my gear bag and wipe in my stinky areas after a ride, immediately after a ride. You might be wise to do the same if you have difficulty with athelete's foot. Clean the tootsies then apply fresh non cotton socks. Cotton socks stay wet and help the little critters grow.

I like socks from Sock Guy because they come in all kinds of neat designs and are thin.

Ah, I'll grab some new socks next time we hit the store.

We got a bunch of those baby wipes already, I'll throw some in a ziplock bag.

Over the weekend I managed to sneak in three hours of riding. And hard enough riding to leave my heart racing three hours after getting off the bike.

Tonight and tomorrow I'll miss riding but should be able to grab an evening or two riding before i have to have the bike packed.

I'll have to ride the big pig of a mountain bike come the weekend.
