Sunset ride

Weather changed and got really nice for a perfect sunset ride. Beverly Saddle the wrong way, new-to-me trails to the bottom of Javelina, up Javelina twice, Beverly Saddle the correct way, home.


South Mountain road ride

Great road ride up Phx South Mountain to the TV towers and then out to San Juan and back. 43 miles in 3hr 13min.

Bike to work

Weather could not have been better for the bike ride to work. The only problem with that ride was the destination.


Pima Mormon National Buena Vista and Back

Early morning ride (6am) with Kevin. Headed up to Buena Vista and back. Kevin fell just before the waterfall and hurt his hand - seemed like it hurt a lot.

Forgot to turn on GPS until we were a couple miles into the ride.

CrossMax 29ers suck!

Converted my bike to a fixie! Without tools! On the trail! Again! Crossmax 29er hubs FAIL!


Pivot eye bearings

These guys are based in Tucson. High end after-market bike parts: custom seals, bearings, bushings, BBs, etc. SMC installed shock eye needle bearings on my mtb. It definitely changes the way the bike handles - rear suspension is a lot more active. I can tell you in a few days if it is good or bad: ENDURO FORK SEALS AND BEARINGS: YOUR ONLINE SOURCE


The Sultan is better than new. Made it up Javelina and Mormon with zero dabs. I can barely walk though...


Ride with Rylan

Rylan persistently asked to ride his bike today. So we dodged the rain storms and got out for a ride. We tooled around on a half-pipe (concrete drainage ditch) for 15 minutes. Then he chased birds with his bike on a soggy grass field for a half-hour. He has LOTS of energy and loves to ride his bike. Awesome.

Great weekend

Great weekend so far: perfect Pivot 429 demo ride in Sedona yesterday and a 35 mile South Mtn TV towers road ride this morning.


Ride with Nelson

Outstanding mtb ride with Mr. Nelson last night. That dude has gotten WAY faster.
