Never used loctite. Grease the threads and grease the underside of the bolt head. Torque well. Check part way into first ride. Should be fine after that. Have installed thousands of them for customers and they never reported problems.

Yesterday and today both I took my two oldest kids out for a ride on the local trail. Oldest is 7 and has been a couple of other times, the younger is 5 tomorrow. It was her first time to ride a bike off-road. They both did great, and LOVED it! I think it will be hard to go for a workout without them in the future

1 more year or so and I think the 2 year old will be ready to go as well.

But hey, the training gotta get done some how.If ya can't do it outside rollers/trainer work.
Watch old race videos. Watch NEW race videos (just DLed and watched the Belgian CX Championships. OMG! What a race by an un-named Belgian) cause it'll make the time go by faster.

AMHIK

I especially like the old Paris-Roubaix films for motivation if I can't get CX races.

Sweet colors too.

I figured out my knee pain. It is really coupled to my lower back issue. The first clue was that after an hour in the hot tub my back and knee were loose enough to let me do some yoga stretches. These made things feel better come morning. Sunday by noon, I was barely able to walk. So laid on the floor and did a little easy stretching.
It felt better. After I finished working last night we hit the hot tub again. Then some more light stretching before bed.
It was still a rough night, but this morning I did even more stretching and both back and knee are better. Nowhere near good, but better.
I can't put my finger on anything I did to fire up the pain, I think it is the result of dropping my daily stretching. So, back at it and then run and walk, and ride, and diet...

The good news is the flat screen is almost mounted on the wall. I got the framing and box and trim completed. Tonight I'll sand and paint and finish the wiring.
I'll have it all mounted and running by the weekend. Oldest daughter has some football watching plans. I'm planning on riding. The long days of measuring three times and cutting twice are over.

old frame building video

Found this on Prollyisnotprobably:



Pretty awesome description of the bike industry and technology in the late '80's. Jack Taylor boys (), Cinelli, Raleigh, Columbus, and that's just the first twenty minutes.

It is fifty minutes long...

I use it all of the time, what does it hurt? If I don't use lock title on something it is usually anti seize

I usually don't do group rides, but I got roped into this one when some people I know spotted me in the parking lot at Santos and insisted I ride with them. I wouldn't have guessed that it would turn out well. The group was composed of two very fast riders (former racers), two women who had only been mountain biking for a couple of months, and one road racer who had virtually no off road experience.

Contrary to my expectations, it turned into one of the best rides I've ever had. Predictably, my buddy Tom and the other mountain bike racer took the lead. Right away I could see what made them so fast on the trails: a total lack of basic survival instinct. Those guys were obviously willing to risk a trip to the hospital to keep their speed up through the turns and rock gardens.

The road racer tried valiantly to keep up, but kept crashing into things and running off the trail. Eventually we stopped to regroup. The two girls seemed pretty pissed off that everyone had left them behind, and one of them sounded like she was ready to go home. I volunteered to take them to some of the easier trails where they wouldn't feel in over their heads, after which we'd all meet back at the trailhead. They actually rode pretty well, considering they'd only been at it for two months, and they caught on very quickly once they were shown how to do things. After lunch, the girls decided to stay in the skills training area while the rest of us went off in search of some of the more challenging trails. By this point, the two racers looked like they were running out of energy, since they weren't blasting through the turns at warp speed any longer. We were still going very fast in the 'straight' sections, but there my 10 lb weight loss combined with 16 weeks of race training allowed me to stay right with them. At one point I even started wondering whether I should go for broke and try to overtake them, but there was no safe place to attempt it. Those two might not have any survival instincts, but I do.

I heard this on NPR the other day and thought you might find it interesting as well.
