Got Another Race Wooooott!

Got another race this Sunday,
Its the Georgia State mountian bike championship race number 8!
Locally in the next town, on the very fast paced trail I JUST rode lol.


SCHWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTEEE!


Now I just hope my jump guard, wheels, and disk brake all come in, and I can get that new fork, and my chain on lol.
(Dropped the chain while riding this evening, and it bent it up to hell and back, twice.)

Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t".

"w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement.
"I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!"

"woot! i r teh flagmastar!" (Think Tribes)

"Woot, I pwnzed this dude's boxen!'

If your parts dont come in tomorrow, dont bother. Its a bad idea to change parts right before a race. Besides with your mechnically-declined skill you might end up hurting yourself or even worse; others.

I stand proudly as a hypocrite.

Anyway, your rotors should give you a measurement (in newtons, I think) of the torque you need. Get a torque wrench. And Locktite Blue, but I believe Avid pre-applies it.
