SO the other day on the mtb trail I am skipping gears for the last time. I think the chain is all stretched to s**t. It was.
Turns out, you guessed it, ALL the sprokets are worn to hell too. New chainrings for the LX crank and a new 9 spd cogset with that chain thank you very much. Cha-ching! 150 with a tune.
To get over that pain of my neglect, I opted to swap off my green Michelins for some pretty red Panaracer Fire XCs to mach my frame, and to get something more mud oriented for a muddy race here in PA this weekend. Ahhh, I feel better already...
Oh yeah, cha-ching - 210.
You can't ride dollar bills, so spend them!
