Yeah.... I managed 56 miles and I tapped out.

Can you tell us something about this type of trainer and how it works?

Awesome Ned!!

I snuck out for a quick but intense ride Saturday morning and had a blast. The outlaws were in the area on a walk (I detest hiking) and got the approval from the war dept to mtb. Ended up flying past them on a tight trail I did not expect them to be on-they heard my bear bell and had stepped off the trail before I go to them. Got an earful when we all met up back at the truck and secretly enjoyed every second of it. MTB = Prozac

Went for a 27 mile loop yesterday with the new whip. Have a few issues that will get straightened out today with the front derailer but other than that it was a Great ride!

I managed to stay away from the bulk of the rain, but most of the big decents were pretty wet so I erred on the side of caution and stayed out of Banzai Mode. All in all, a good day in the saddle.

Impressive!

It's a Racermate Computrainer. It's a little on the spendy side, but justifiable in my situation.


You can ride with your Garmin and convert the ride to a course that the trainer simulates. Or you can use other peoples courses. The course in the pic is Ironman Coeur d'Alene's bike course.

Well, I tried to buy a helmet today.
Made a lunch stop at performance bike on the other side of town. As expected, after trying on many helmets, the only one I felt I would actually wear was the most expensive one they had, $189. Then I looked at some new shoes, and bibs, and shirts, and..... Next thing I know, I've got $600 worth of stuff in my hands.
Then my damned phone rang, and I had to get back to work ASAP, so I put it all down and ran out the door. I think I'll just stick the chainlove tracker on the home computer and see if something turns up in the next few days. I don't think my schedule has a spot for me to even consider a ride till Thursday.

If you know your sizes, pricepoint.com, departmentofgoods.com, sierratradingpost.com, competitivecycling.com and one or 2 others are places to look

working on some thing for a new frame.
I already have a carbon 29er frame and it has 1 1/8" head tube, top and bottom. the new possible new frame has 1 1/8" top and 1 1/2" bottom.

Problem is I dont want to put too many $$$ in to this and new forks are a pricy.

Are there any options out there for using 1 1/8" steerer tube forks that have a 1 1/2" bearing on the bottom?

Thanks
Hay Ewe

I'm pretty sure the answer's 'no' going from a smaller HT to a big steerer tube. You CAN go the other way tho.

Check Chris King's website. If anyone makes something, they do. ...Or problem solvers' site.
