Just bruised.   :lol:   Front tire washed out on a dry slick corner, then hit a rut that had dried up.  Happened on a corner I've done a lot on a trail at Waterworx.  Luckily I cushioned the fall for my bike.

"Luckily I cushioned the fall for my bike"   Good job !  Bruises heal for free, mountain bikes not so much.  :lol:  Glad it wasn't worse, heal up quick.   8)

Out for Thursday. Just discovered a water leak under my house.  10:30pm Wednesday, water shut off. New priority tomorrow  :(

I'm out too.  I discovered how hard the ground is about 5:00pm Wednesday.

Bummer.

Hope the water leak is an easy fix.

FV, the saying that God made dirt so dirt won't hurt is bull crap.  :lol:
Glad it wasn't worse. Rub some Tussin on it for the next few days, Summit opens on Thursday.  8)

I got lucky (again) The water leak was a pinhole in a piece of 1/2" copper, hose clamp and a piece of old garden hose got it, and the parts we're in the garage win win.
I bought some more time but that's rinky dink fix number 2, it's time.  Looks like I'm re-plumbing with plastic pex, my house is going to be like a big RV that never moves with freakin plastic tubing for pipes... :) I guess that's the new deal  :lol:

Finally got the inevitable flat. Went from a 2.5 front and 2.3 rear to 2.6's front and rear, and went tubeless.  Test rode on the beach yesterday to check them out. I like it !

We may be going to Summit next Friday or there's a rumor of going to Snow Valley next Sunday.

Rode a couple new trails today. Got a call after work "Want to do a spur of the moment ride" ?
"Yeah sure I'm in"
"Nothing too scary I promise"...   

So we ride by the bottom of this steep azz hill I've been looking at since day one on the bike, I say "I don't know dude, ... I don't see me ever going down sh!t like that"

"Oh that's the first one we're doing"   :o  "Trust me it's easy, just follow me"    :lol:

Guess who called ?
