[size=0px]Fast and Frozen till about noon today. Tomorrow will be a little earlier as it warms up quicker. Still dry overall, but freeze thaw is going to get more active as deep freeze becomes steady.[/size]
****************  by the time you were riding at 4 it was back down below 30degrees. This morning after my ride at the Fort(fast and frozen), I headed downtown via the FC trail and Monon. On my way back north stopped into Fort again and did another lap. Today at 4 the temp was up above 32 and indeed the trail had thaw areas and slick spots.
 Point I was trying to make is the trail is not always rideable just because its sunny out and dry. Most times it can be freezing and 28-30 degrees out and thaw can still happen as the sun melts the top layer.This in turn leaves tire ruts, which then retain water and form mudholes that create more trail work maintenance. Just a small tip for new riders out there that think the trail is go to go when the Blue rating is on the top dashboard for a given trail.
Good luck with your first snow ride.

Dont go to Pisgah then, cause the 4 mile loop around Daniels Ridge will toast you.

Should be closed the rest of the day also, as trail has severe thaw since about 10am this morning. All south facing slopes are pure mud and there's evidence of too many people riding when trail is too soft. Pure RED.

Several shops in town sell them. You also went right by another on your way to Story on 135, Trail Time Tack?,small store with supplies and horses hangin out. Also at Stonehead you can turn left to PikesPeak and go to Crouch's market. Story Inn has never been the go to on passes, probably more their lack of effort than the NFS.

If you use this syringe to measure accurately, how do you know how much is already in fork or how much has been lost? Most fork manufactures list to the milliliter on volume to be added to the spring side and dampener side. Also they usually spec 2 different weight oils to be used and it's very rarely 20wt. No wonder you burn up forks prematurely. Most manuf. state 100 hours useage between oil and seal intervals. Most riders never adhere to this interval and wear out bushings and stachions.
