Buy, Sell, Trade / WTB Strider Bike
« on: August 01, 2017, 08:27:05 PM »
My 3 year old is ready for a strider bike.  If you have one to sell, message me.  I will be at Potato Creek both days (this weekend) if you are going that direction. 

Thank you

Very much like Warsaw in terms of ground.  Fast course, like Town Run.  Last year was WET.

I have not had a chance to talk with anyone. I am more than willing to help weedeat the trails if anyone can tell me whom to talk with at the park.

Perhaps this is a better question for the racing forum, but how does the fee impact races?  Are the racers expected to still have the pass?  Does the host organization provide them?  Or is that an exemption? 

I am NOT trying to put gasoline on the coals.  Just a thought I have wondered about for a while. 

Tech Bench / Storing bikes

How do you store your bikes?  Esp with the shocks?  horizontal?  Vertical?  Upside down? 

Disadvantages to the vertical / upside down options? 

The best way for me to store mine would be hanging from the ceiling.  But I really don't want the shocks and hydraulics upside down for most of the winter if I can help it.  I don't have the space to store them standing properly on the ground. 

Really need that "Honey I shrunk the kids" ray for winter storage!

with the race coming up soon, what does the park have available as services?  Specifically, are there showers that can be used?  I don't mind paying but the state web site does not say. 


Discussion here has been interesting. 

The persons to contact about the budget shortfall are your state representatives and senators.  you can find their contact information through the Find Your Legislator link.  Even better is to ask them about the budget shortfall in person when you see them.  Some actually go to town meetings to hear from voters. 

Thanks.  This will help with planning.  Versailles and I have a very adversarial and expensive relationship.   ::)

What is the deal with the trails in Avon?  Are users allowed to weed-eat them?  There are a couple of spots that need chopping back, but I don't know the rules here.

This is the eco-friendly way.  Reuse those plastic bags!

what are those things on your bar that are holding the bags?

honestly, the best thing you can do is ride each.  only you can decide what works best for you.

One other thing ... sometimes yelling "Rider Up" is for those following a rider.  When in a group, such a thing informs everyone there is another rider around.

Dang.  Hate to see you go.  But better things await you.  Enjoy the riding out there.  What I rode was absolutely incredible. 
You know where to find us! 

Tech Bench / Re: Helmet for cold weather?
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:29:58 AM »
I tried on the pants but the drawstring just won't cut it. It has one of those plastic, spring loaded cinch do-dads. It felt too loose and that was just in the dressing room. To bad since the price is reasonable.

I have a pair of these and will have to look at the waistband.  No problems when riding with them.  Nothing moves around unexpectedly.
For hands, I have been told my many that the bar mits are the way to go.  Seems like regular gloves or just thin liners inside of them are enough.  I've not tried them -- frankly, commuting both ways in the dark gets old quickly, so I don't know if I will. 
I have lobster gloves and my hands sweat enough that they get wet and cold.  I make it about an hour of my commute and then have problems. 
For the helmet, I was thinking if you stay in a fancy hotel, grab a shower hair cover.  Try it.  Then you know if such a thing will work for you and can get something specific.
