Any magic to MC pant sizing or anything to watch our for? I have a meeting in Columbus on Wed afternoon, I plan to stop by IP after.
Nope, most I've found run pretty close to the right size or a smidge tighter. At least Olympia,klim, and Joe rocket are that way.

Yup, 27 miles to Chestnut Ridge; 35 minutes +/-. Never been there before. Is it fairly new? I quit that kind of riding shortly after Alum P2 opened.

I have thought more than once about building a bike rack on the motorcycle. But then I just remember how much I like/prefer motorcycling and decide it would hardly get used. I'm still reasonably new to dirtbiking, so I really have no interest in finding other hobbies right now. Perhaps years down the road when my metabolism shuts down and/or I grow tired of the same old same old dirt bike roads/trails within an easy hour or so ride, then I'll revisit Mtn biking. I really did enjoy it. But not quite as much as dual-sporting!

I'd probably like mountain biking and it's very good exercise. Anyone got a Giant Faith O for sale real cheap?

I have a Penske shock and Anakee IIs, no skid plate or crash bars yet. I am in MSTA and the Ohio rally was there this past weekend. The guy who lead us around on Saturday is a local. No way I woulda tried some of that stuff on my own! I live in the Columbus area.

Super Tenere stock aside from a Penske shock and Anakee IIs. The local was Jim Mullins, I don't know where he works but I don't think it is a bike dealership. I live in Columbus. Not up is the Adventure ride at the Nutcracker 200!

Yikes!!!

So, after changing the rear bearing on the F8GS ... special thanx to Shawn (Quickdraw) for the assist in getting the bearings out and the tire change that led to discovery of the bad bearings in the first place ... I re-installed the wheel and set about giving the chain a good scrubbing.

1st discovery ... Some nicks on the outer edge ... from some rocks I'd guess. Not a big deal.



2nd discovery ... look's like something is missing, doesn't it? Frickin' master link clip took a vacation. Lucky me. Really, really lucky.

Time to review clip installation procedures.

Alright! I'm gone Thursday Sept. 13th and working Thursday Sept. 30th, but I'm free all the other Thursdays till the last one of October.

I know some folks that swear by safety wire instead of those clips.

2005/6 Fisher Rig, huh? I ride singlespeed quite a bit. I generally race on a S-Works singlespeed. It was a replacement for a broken aluminum one.

I am constantly worried about mine. I want to go rivet style instead. Does anyone know if it is possible to smash (rivit?) the clip style links?

yes it is...however, with the clip properly installed and then safety wired, you'll have nothing to worry about
