Yeah, don't have a choice. Don't have the $$ to pay someone to do it. Its SPEN-DEE to get the rear end off, etc. Lots of hours.

Got a buddy coming over Mon to help me. Hopefully, we'll have her buttoned back up Mon afternoon/evening.

Access port. Yeah right! Don't think so!

If it was MY car, I'd be all over that access port cutting thing. Problem is, its HER car... has been said to cutting the floor.

Oh well. May hafta find someone to weld up the exhaust when I'm done.

A great weekend in the Kingdom

So we spent the weekend at Kingdom Trails in East Burke, VT, and had a great time. The weather was perfect and the trails were mostly dry. I felt like I got in more time on the trails on this trip than on any of my previous trips up there, hit every trail that I'd learned to love on previous trips (some multiple times), and learned to love some new ones, as well.

7-8 hours on the bike yesterday, about 3 today, my legs feel like rubber bands. And I still wish I'd hit a few more singletrack loops before we stopped, today.

You wouldn't think haring a trail for 2-ish miles 2 days straight isn't that bad, but bowy howdy do my legs ache! Between the scouting, the haring, and etc. I'm done running for a few days.

I have my 'new' bike built up, so maybe I'll spin easy tomorrow.

www.mtbr.com has lots of reviews if you are looking for a mountain bike.

Too actually buy a bike, I'd go to your local shop.

hey, drifting sideways... a friend mentioned in an email that he has a 3-speed internal hub folder, and the shifting chain is broken... the -only- three speed hubs I can seem to find online (sheldonbrown) are sturmey archer, all the others are 4 speed, 7 speed, etc. does anyone know if that little shifter chain is one size fits all? its been a long long LONG time since I've worked on one of those, and I'd like to try and fix his bike this weekend...

IIRC they're same same, but I'm not positive

if you have yer LBS check QBP and/or J&B, they should be able to get something that'll work. J&B is prolly a better bet.

Yer gonna fall.

Everyone ALWAYS does.

Usually at a standstill. In traffic. At the time when there's a cute blonde in a convertible right next to ya.

I will go to jail for this right.

I've been pulled over twice and both times explained my position/opinion to the cops. They have just given me a warning and drove on...
