    I just got Single digit 7's.

    Just thought ide share that with you all. ANd tommorow i can actually have a bicylce that can be ridden (i was selling my brakes before to raise money for the wheels). So finally, after 1 week of being bicycleless i will ride. Of course its no fun being so cold and nasty snow out there.

    I'ts finally starting to dry up here in CO, I made the mistake of trying to MTB bout a week after the snow, and my tires jammed up with all the mud. It got everywhere, the crankset, the front derauiler, it was really ugly. Had to take it to one of those self serve car washes.

    Yeah, that's the main problem with a really muddy trail. Gotta hose the bike off everytime or your just asking for mechanical troubles later. I don't mind too much, tho. Better than not riding!

    ITs what got me into maintaining my bike in the first place, they dont have the tricky jobs like parks site but they have a good reference for things the average person will do. ON the park site as good as it is its all buy the park this and the park that.
