I picked the location last week--where do we want to ride this week? I'm up for anything, although I haven't brought the Notsolight in for spoke repairs so I'm limited to either the SS or the Delirum T. What do you guys want to ride?

Really looking forward to to it. Since you guys rode my fav's while I was out I am thinking Palmer Park or somewhere in the canyon. Monument could be cool also.
Flailed would be a better description than "rode". We got off on the wrong trail a couple of times in Red Rocks and we missed coming down the cool one on the east side of the hogback.

Palmer Park works for me--are we riding technical (Delirium), or flowy (Unit)?

Palmer would be fun but I'm catching some sort of bug so I don't know if I'll be in or not. I have tomorrow off work so maybe if I lay low and hit the water bottle hard I'll be ok. If Palmer is the final choice, why ride flowy when there is so much fun tech there?

Just slap the Formula front on there, or did you sell those?

When you guys say tech are you saying Templeton?, personally I would prefer something a little less tech at night. I'm a maybe tho, with the forecasted weather Wed I might get out during the day since I'm self employed, or unemployed is a better term at the moment.

Palmer is fine with me. I think someone needs to find me a avid 203 front brake adapter for the older 32mm boxer so I can ride big bike. Maybe do a few self shuttles up the road and rip down trail. If not then I guess it's endo night.
I dont have a 203mm adapter but will say if you dont ride that bike soon your going to explode!:madmax:

Arin, do you need a regular adapter, or the one with the extra 5mm offset? I used to have one with the 5mm offset, but I gave it away thinking that I didn't need it anymore. I might have a regular one (IS standard) in my tool box though.

Rick, for me, techy = Templeton. I'll ride down anything on the Unit (well, almost anything), but if we're going to ride anything with techy climbs, I need the Delirium. I'm up for riding whatever though, I just need to know which bike is going to be the best choice. Even if you are unemployed, that's no reason not to be social and ride with us--ride during the day tomorrow and join us on Wednesday.

K-man yeah I need the one with the 5mm offset I got the reg one not thinking so I have that if you need a extra one for a fork.

If anyone knows a shop that has a adapter for the boxer in stock please let me know I have not had any luck so far. Lol

Old Town has an adapter that MIGHT work. Its Hayes Part # 98-15071. I'm likely a no show again; I have to train a client until 6:30pm at a gym on Star Ranch Rd.

Arin, I have your brake adapter in my car so you're good to go on the Grand Mal tonight.

For anyone joining us, we're meeting at the parking lot on the west side of the park off of Paseo and Chelton at 6:30 (I forgot to put that little tidbit in my original post).

Sounds good. I'll see you guys there. If I'm lucky I'll even have a new rear tire. No more pissing off the rider behind me when I spin out on the climbs. Well, at least I can't blame the tire anymore...

Thanks for the ride tonight guys, I had fun trying to keep up and learning a new trail at the same time. Hope the weather is just as nice next week.

Nice video Jay, sorry Youtube busted you. The hand is ok. I think it is just a sprain so I'm icing it. Thanks for going back to the cars with me. At least that allowed you to get the camera working. It is going to be a long day at work since I have to type one handed... haha.

Wow, the Go-Pro makes trails look flat and easy during the day--and it's even worse at night!

Thanks for sharing though Jay! It was a great ride last night--Templeton Rocks!
