    Another thread of no relevance.

    Just babbling...

    First off finally some nicer weather! Yesterday was my second day back starting up digging again. I've gotten back into working on my website and will probly start to actually use it and update it once the trails are hittin' and i get can some pictures and clips. I'll let you all know.


    Second...my Shadow driver again.
    This time i noticed alot of skipping when i was riding my box so i took a few minutes to check her out. Turns out my chain is cracked. So i fix that no big deal. Then it's still skipping so i take the driver off and hub apart. What do you know...the 2 of the 4 springs are broken and flopping around in there. NO GOOD.
    So i e-mailed Shadow's warranty people to see if they will help me out...again. If this **** happens again i'm going to lace up my rim to a Profile. I can't be killing these drivers every month.


    Third...It's supposed to snow Wednesday around here and that's going to suck. At least we have huge tarps everywhere at our trails

    Fourth...I've become smiley happy. I use them too much.

    I was told I should use more smilies because otherwise people don't understand my English sense of humour. Eightdip can probably relate to that.

    I probably shouldn't mention that yesterday it was almost 60 degrees Fahrenheit here. I went out for a ride, and then went shooting. It was a good day.

    Lucky. We had another two hour delay due to the wind chill factor being below zero....again.

    Damn, what a piece of crap. I'm never buying a Shadow hub now...

    It's starting to warm up here, it was warm enough to ride with a t-shirt yesterday. I suck more now since I'm out of practice, and my legs are a little sore from riding when they weren't used to it.

    If I had any, I wish I did, they would be all ice and frozen. With snow on top of that.

    Sucks. Ours are a bit wet but we've got tarps to protect them from the snow that is currently coming down .

    Haha you wouldn't come help us steal the tarps so we didn't get you one!
    And i love Duke St. but Van **** is by far greater. I'll drop you a line.

    If you want trails...go find a spot in the woods and dig! It's all controlled by you.
