The old timey times
it's the GMT. poop. coffee. bitch about your job and kids if you have them. brief commentaries about local weather and real estate. occasional commentaries about health, cars, home improvement projects, finances, and bike riding.
carry on.
I've been there, but only to make fun of toshi for his extravagant car purchases. I had no idea they were so.........versatile!

Just looked at the last page.

Damn dude. I live in Lake fucking Tahoe. Rampant consumerism, tech bro gadgets, and neoliberal bullshit regarding what 'the help' should be paid........I got plenty of. Don't need to augment.

We will save the planet by overconsuming the correct products.

oh, that just means retired old white ladies can't find it next to roadsides any more

I wish I were kidding but that seems to be the case with botanicals. I'll actually be in court over this soon regarding another species.

But worth keeping an eye on!

God that stuff tastes like shit.........

I logged into the Strava machine and see our @6thElement has logged a few PR on the local trail.
Sounds like he's adjusting pretty well to his new Egg !
Riding solo I was going to try for a top to bottom Enchanted Apex run last night, but as soon as I dropped in something hit my shin - I thought my water bottle had come out the cage. The 5" moondust and bitch of a middle climb make it hard going flat out on Enchanted right now :p

Cruised Enchanted and then pushed a little more down the gut as it's moondust free.

That car would be 100% cooler with the Front and rear made to look like the 210 from Two-Lane Blacktop........

Anyone got any tips or tricks for getting the main frame bearings to go back in straight (with the spacer tubes between them)? I was replacing them for the second time yesterday, and while I can get them out fine, and the first one in fine, I have a hell of a time keeping the spacer tubes to stay horizontal while I press in the second bearing with a drift set.

Can I replace my shock bolts with stainless bolts without the risk of breaking them? Titanium is definitely a no? My fat ass sweats a lot and my bolts corrode pretty bad…

I think SS bolts aren't as strong? I'm sure someone knowledgeable will be along to confirm/deny that.

How about just giving them a light grease covering?

I would recommend using standard silver zinc plated bolts. They're M8x1.25, 10.9 grade. Stainless bolts are weaker and gall easily, stay away from that.

I replaced the shock bolts with Ti and haven't died yet. Due to the unthreaded length, you have to order both long and cut to length. It takes fucking forever with a Dremel, let me tell you.
