Ok, well, it wasn't even remotely that bad. A few wet and snowy spots made for some good riding. May you live in interesting times, indeed. This will probably be the last ride I get up in here until spring time. Work week for me now, then a full week in Moab, followed by another work week. I figure it'll get enough snow by then that I won't really want to hit it up.

Gotdirt, EricTheRed, Squeaky Wheel and myself showed up. The first group ride I've been on in quite a while that only had one Dave along. Though the large dog at the bottom of the trail I still suspect to be named Dave.

GD did his largest drop to date (I think; correct me if i'm wrong) and ETR kicked some trail @ss on the fully rigid ride. I've ridden this area that way, and it's tough. Nice job. Squeak wasn't too excited about all the wet/offcamber stuff, but he seemed to be having a good time despite the horrible arctic conditions. And one more pic from the other day.

I think a few other cameras were in attendance; post 'em up, gents!

(and i figured out why my shifting was slightly funked up all day: cassette lockring was a bit loose; about 1mm of play on the freehub body. not good! all snugged up now, and no damage incurred.)

Careful with your ride there Squeak:D
I think he may have scratched a tire. We told him it would buff right out.

...actually i've hit a couple of other bigger drops (aspen, porcupine rim) but only because i was flowin' down the trail at speed and had no other choice! ;)

as for this one, it really isn't bad at all is it... due to its placement (TH/road) i've just "looked at it" too much and chickened out. i knew if there was a time to try it for the first time, yesterday was it considering i had a doctor and an ICU nurse on hand. :p

likewise, i took apart my rear hub when i got home-- turns out the pawls were fine, but the spring was slightly tweaked so they weren't all engaging. spinergy sent out a new spring today. :thumbsup:
