Good morning Monkeys and happy Veterans Day to anyone that it applies too, thank you for what you have given to America!

Did a night ride last night, I don’t know about everyone else but it’s getting damn hard to see the trail with all the leaves covering the trail. I must have run off the trail 10 times last night, but it was beautiful outside last night.

23 days left until Kim’s due date, little konabumm will be here before you know it.

Questions of the day: What kind of pedals do you ride?

I have blue Crankbrothers Candy pedals on my XC bike and the Mallets on my Stinky!


PS. Still no RM Shirt, I'm starting to wonder???

Good Morning Everyone

Yep, I'm at work
In a gov facility
All the govvies are off
I am the only one who even served and I'm working....

Splat was right... commute was easy
And... I get to do whatever I want today.. like blast Pink Floyd
:)

Pedals?
I'm not a pedal afficionado.. so I've just got the Performance Campus pedals..because I am a wuss.

Watchin' you. Writing it all down.
Schools are out so the drive was easy today, did suck 'cause my wife is off today so leaving bed was less than easy.

Hoping to cut out early today to get a ride in this afternoon.

Ride tomorrow. And Panthers game on Sunday. Also got leaves to take care of.... damn weekends fill up fast.

ATACs on my 575 (changed recently from shimano 545s) and Dura Ace on my Roubaix.

Did a night ride last night also, Yeah the leaves make it tough to see the trail , they also were making hell for traction. I don't know how many times my tires slid.

Working today , looks like it should be a quite day , lots of people off , commute was easy
Nice!

I am running the Maxxis Larsen(SP) tubeless and didn't have a problem with traction. I did however have to stop a few times to take leaves out of my cassette

Morning. Just about to head off to school in a few minutes.

I'm really glad it's Friday though. :rolleyes: It's been an interesting week from breaking my hardtail frame, to learning that some of the employees at my favorite shop that I was fairly good friends with got arrested for stealing money from the company.

Morning. I'm at work as well today. I work in a Casino and we are open 365 days a year. It sucks. Nothing planned for this weekend except more working. Hoping to get a night ride in this weekend. That's about it. :)

As for pedals, I've got Shimano M-520 SPDs on my trail bike (Kona Dawg), Tioga MX Pro platforms on my DH bike (Giant DH) and Wellgo B25 platforms on my urban huckster (Azonic Steelhead).

Oh and for pedals, I use Azonic Fusions (2 pairs, one black, one magnesium-ish) and Crank Brothers Mallet C's (2 pairs, one black, one grey). Of course, they're used on different bikes at different times, I don't just have 2 pairs of each to be trendy and match the colors with my current parts build. :p

Good morning!

As for pedals, I generally run TIME ATACs (Alium & Z) depending on which bike I am riding. I have some platforms (not sure of the make) on my DH bike.

I'm off of school today so I am doing laundry, cleaning bathrooms, dishes, dusting and other basic household crap. After work we're headed out to the Rochester area for one of my baby showers but that's about all.

xc bike pedals - shimano 747s
DH bike pedals - currently wellgo b-27 (L) and wellgo b-37 (R), but i am trying to get some crank bros 50/50xx to try out.

Went to see the peremire for TGR's The Tangerine Dream. It rocked. Some of the best big mountain stuff I have ever seen. It was sick.

And the kicker was Mix-Master Mike was working the tables after the show.

It was a great night! Even my date liked it, and she doesn't ski (yet)!


edit...QOD.

Times Z-control & ATAC

I've got Time ATACs on my bike. Have had them for 3 years. Before that I had Onza HO pedals for ~8 years.

I had the Onza pedals at one point. Worst pedals I've ever used. :D
I never really had much issue with them. The would very occasionally "pre-release" on me, but that didn't really bother me much.

The Time's are much nicer, though. :D

The same problem here: Release way too easy. Even w/ the hardest rubbers in there (black was it ?) :think: They were dangerous.
