Sorry, I didn't even think about it.
It was a spur of the moment thing to head that direction, we were kinda running late as OMR had to be home by 5 and I needed to stop by and see my sister, West of Strasburg, who I hadn't seen since Christmas.

Yeah, but I could have gotten that picture taken for you. I'm sorry you two missed it.

Sounds like the RTE was a success!

WTF was up with that rear brake issue on the trail? I heard some bolts came loose? Did you put stainless steel braided brake lines on the bike and if so did you notice any improvement? If you need it, the offer still stands to use my shop and bike lift if you have maintenance/farkle issues to deal with. I just stocked the beer cooler.

I had taken off the rear caliper the day before and apparently didn't crank it down hard enough when I reinstalled it. Doh!

I have stainless brake lines for the front that I still need to install (and I have a feeling it's going to really improve how smooth my front braking is--they're pretty sticky right now), as well as new brake pads for front and rear. I'll definitely need some help with the skid plate too. I'm going to take you up on your offer as soon as I get back in town.

Shoot me an email at warren.heidt@gmail.com since I rarely check my PM's, but regularly check my email. I am working most afternoons these days until 5-6 pm or so, but the shop is available most evenings and weekends.
