Should I?

I had an idea today that the more I think about the more I feel like I just have to do.

As you all know, next month is bike month, for my shop I'm terming it total domination month.We're gonna do big promotions, 24 hour turn around, parties, the like. This sounds like a good idea from a money stand point, but my sanity may suffer, heavily. Luckily, I'm feeling very captilistic today. I really wish that were a word.

This is about two weeks after I explored every option possible to not have to work 12 hours a day. Including, but not limited to, raising prices, hiring a new mechanic, hiring a service writer, purchasing a purple monkey to do all bike cleaning, purchasing a purple monkey and dressing him up as myself to, well you know, do my job. After all that, I'm not sure why I want to promote insanity, but it just feels right. I'm sure I'll have plenty of pics for everyone...


Spindle broke after missing the tranny at the skate park. Ouch!

Thank you, Rectum

Well, the local fish rubber has once again failed to be interesting and has dragged me into it.

As you should know the Ironman is on its way to St. George, so the Spectrum thought it would be a good idea to cover the story in a view of the local business and how it has effected them. Good idea? Yes. Well done? No.

First up, the story was incoherent, uninteresting and just a pile of shit. Worst of all, they dragged my sorry mug into be their mascot.

They should have done a story including some local Ironman racer deusch and tied it into local interests. Why? Because that would have been interesting.

This paper is fucked.... Enjoy a laugh at my misquoted sorry ass.

The fork details

What you can't see in the picture (at least very well) is the oil that has drained out of the damper and lip seals all over the fork. I knew I was in trouble last week when it began puddling up around the mission control dials but I failed to make the call to SRAM to get new ones or to even think about it. After about 10 minutes of riding the oil was dripping off the rebound knob on the bottom of the fork. I had to adjust two to three clicks of rebound twice every run. To get any damping at all leaves this beast just a couple of clicks from full rebound damping which would usually make the fork rebound like molasses going up a hill. Unfortunately in its current state it rebounds the way it should.

I guess I know what I'll be doing at some point this week...

My fork is fucked

Hit Grafton Mesa a few times today. Unfortunately my fork doesn't seem to have faired very well.
