DAMN, must be dragging them. Maybe they’re not releasing?

Hatfield was fun!
We should do another DAMN Buffalo Mtn ride.

They seem to release fine. I didn't burn off the first set of pads unexpectedly, they were just at the end of their life/thin. Apparently these unknown brand pads were made of pencil erasers or something :lol2:

The original pads would have lasted longer even with just 1/16" of material left :dry:


Also, sounds like you just volunteered to organize the DAMN BM ride :deal:

:dry: About the only consolation is the fact this rotor was at the end of its life before this and I was going to change it after this trip anyway (had a replacement on hand already)

Also had a Galfer rear brake line I had bought for something at some point that was brand new in the package and fit just about perfect.

Clearly the whole bike is defective. You bought a lemon. I'll give you a dollar for it to save you the headaches of constantly fixing it.

Small gap to hop. Big mental thing to clear this since unlike jumping Jed's creek crossing there were consequences for boogering it up. This trail has been closed for a few years but makes a nice short cut. Probably the last year we use it though.

After all of this rain, my creek is a little more challenging.

New seat. I ALMOST ordered a new one of these before the Hatfield trip, but because they are super busy this time of year I most likely wouldn't have gotten it before the trip. Which worked out because a guy over on Beta Rider posted this complete seat for what I would have spent on just the foam and cover :thumbup:
