Hey everyone thanks for the great ride again. :) I'm soo happy I rode out the pain and finished the ride. Thanks BM for staying with me going up Lookout and the Advil. Your the greatest!!! :)

Have a great week!!!

Snowy

Great ride! I really enjoyed my first ride up Lookout Mtn... look forward to doing it again. :)

Stats: 15.38 miles, 2096.11 feet elevation

OK, I really sucked today. Excuses include that it was my 2nd ride in 5 months and that my back was killing me. But since Snowy toughed it out, I felt I had to do the same.

Glad pwnt made it back to his vehicle in one piece after blowing-up his r. dereailler.

That being said, it was a gorgeous climb and is one that I look forward to doing many more times this year. I think Kyle mentioned that a good time up Lookout (~1500' in ~4.5 miles) is 30 minutes - I've added that as a goal for 2007.

BM, thanks for leading the way.

Actually it was the front derailleur. One of the links on the chain opened up and hooked the derailleur, sucking it through. :( Mad props to BM for the chain link. I owe you big time Brother! I should have paid you for it right there but I wasn't thinking. Little frustrated at that point.
Glad you guys had fun. I will be ready to go next weekend. <breaks the wallet AGAIN *sigh>

Bah. It was freely given. Throw it in your seat bag as insurance against a future mishap. (Because we all know that if you're prepared, it'll never happen, right??? :p )

See ya next time. :)

Sorry to hear that your bike broke!! That has to suck.

Hopefully next ride you will be good to go!! :)

Looking at a couple bikes

Thinking about this one, just to make people feel bad: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4994756

:p

Actually, have two Trek 1220's I'm gonna look at.

snowy 02-19-07 01:44 PM

Ha ha BM. :)

I'm sure whatever you buy you will make it run smoothly.

Pwnt 02-19-07 07:11 PM

Dude! That thing is friggin SWEET! It' has a front derailluer on it so it blows mine away. :D

Last week I boasted that I have "routes running out of my ears" so let's put it to the test. I'll do the route for this weekend in the Boulder/Broomfield area. A couple of questions:

1. Saturday or Sunday?

2. Distance? I can go from <25 miles to over 125 miles (but I ain't gonna do that one this weekend).

3. Start time?

I'll post a map today or tomorrow depending on the distance people want. I think I'll start another thread however, this one is getting a bit big.

Pwnt 02-20-07 09:37 AM

As I understand it.....the weather this weekend is going to leave something to be desired.

snowy 02-20-07 09:39 AM

Yeah I heard the weather is not looking good this weekend :(

bmclaughlin807 02-20-07 11:41 AM

Bah. Man up! Let's ride! :)

1) don't matter. C. and I were considering the RMCC ride Sunday (47mi to DIA and back), I can be talked into pretty much anything....

2) 40-50 would be good

3) 11:30, 12?

I'll keep an eye on it and if things look bad, we'll postpone a week.

While you and I may go out in that crap, the other people here are hot house flowers. They'd wilt;) I'll still keep an eye on the weather.

hairlessbill 02-20-07 04:22 PM

My vote is for Sunday. Any distance is okay with me. Start time around 11:30 is best for me.

Pwnt 02-20-07 06:55 PM

Yeah, that's a MTB. IF we're talking MTB I'm down. Roadbikes will have to wait a week I'm think. I have the parts, don't have the time to get em on.

Zin 02-20-07 09:36 PM

D'OH! I missed the ride! :(

I am on call this Saturday, but should be free to ride Sunday if the wx holds.

And if its snowy etc... I have my ice bike ready to roll along with new lights. Lets get out there.

Take your parts to Westside!! :) Let them do the work.

Pwnt 02-20-07 10:27 PM

But I'm Po'!!! Remember?

It's actually not that hard just need to take the time to sit down and do it. (Note to self: don't pin the lead edge of the chain link....bad joo joo)

Pwnt 02-20-07 10:28 PM

And Zin...good to see your still with us. Thought we lost ya. :D

"With skinsuit on and a windless 60 degrees, Tom beat the old record by almost a minute. His time was 16:02!"

Well, if I had a skinsuit and conditions were perfect, I could knock it out in 16 mins too. :D
