Tech Bench / Looking for Nutserts/Rivnut for bottle mounts
« on: June 10, 2019, 11:25:20 AM »
I might only use this a few times, so I thought I'd put out a calling for use of someone's Rivnut tool and some extra nutserts they might have laying around. I'm drilling an old steel frame for mounts.  Extra karma points if you can help a fellow rider out!! I'm in Carmel/north side of Indy. PM if you can assist

Rants and Raves / RIP Justin Wilson

The hearts of the mountain bike community in Indy and all over the globe go out to Justin's family and loved ones.  While the media has focused on his philanthropy, he was also a secondary advocate for mountain biking by enjoying our sport when he wasn't working or spending time with family.  I think many, if not most of us, can relate. 

Rants and Raves / Argument for Helmet Mounted GoPro

Don't forget to move your handlebar mounted GoPro to your helmet prior to your next ride through bandit country. 

Riding on Pavement / Now that's a bike friendly city!

Some of our Indiana towns and communities do a pretty good job of welcoming the cycling community to their locale.  But, I doubt heating the bike lanes for winter riding would ever make the master plan.


Rants and Raves / Wahoooooo!!!!!! Going suspended after riding rigid
« on: June 27, 2012, 01:48:07 PM »
After riding rigid for the past 9 months post my August 2011 shoulder separation, I've added a new to me RS SID to my ss GT!  Wow! What a difference!  I didn't notice the weight gain on the front of my bike and had noticeable increased control / less fatigue.  Usually by the 4 mile mark at TR, my hand would go numb and I'd have to hang on by fingertip to relieve the pressure on my wrist.  After today's ride, no numbness!

I've had suspension forks before, but none with lockout.  Using the lockout was much more simple than I'd originally thought.  The industry markets remote lockout, but now I know this is completely unnecessary for me.  I locked out at TR on the home stretch, just to do it.  Honestly, Unless I'm doing a long climb, I don't think I'll be using the lockout much.

I'm not discounting the past months of rigid riding.  I know it helped me to become a better rider by forcing me to pick better lines and strengthening my upper body.  Once I build my multi-speed hardtail, the rigid fork will probably go back on the ss for nostalgic rides.
