Define "fixed". I took it apart and cleaned it up and we'll see how long it lasts.

The new Strava heat map. Filter for cycling and then check out all those routes in the desert.

https://labs.strava.com/heatmap/#7.64/-111.52978/39.52470/hot/all

We gotta go. We gotta strap some crap on the bikes and go.

The Fuji? It ain't worth a ton. If I were looking to sell it right now, maybe $400-$500?

So I've got a 22t granny gear and a 32t middle ring, I think the 30t single is the one I'm going to get. Do I need to worry about alignment with the cassette?

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/black-by-absoluteblack-narrow-wide-oval-single-chainring/rp-prod131089


I'm going to replace my chain as well, anything of note to look for there?

Chain line is not super critical, but you'll want to bolt it up to whichever side of the crank mounting holes puts it closer to the center of the cassette. If it's going to be grossly off center no matter what you do, you might need to look into spacers somewhere to bring it in line, or you'll have to deal with funky shifting, increased wear, and chain drops.

A new chain is a good idea. A quicklink/missing link/powerlink makes chain maintenance and cleaning a breeze, and makes field chain repair much easier. Measure your chain for stretch first though, if it's way out of spec then it's probably worn your cassette down too and you'll want to just run it like that until you're ready to replace them both at the same time.

I want to bike camp this weekend. Friday-Saturday or Saturday-Sunday I want to strap everything I can on the bike and put the rest in a backpack and ride up Hasting Pass the other side of Delle, camping on the other side at the ghost town/mine/quarry and then riding back the next day. It'll be doubletrack the whole way, nothing technical, more of a shakedown to see what I need to change about my setup and see just how terrible my legs are.

One of you needs to come suffer with me.

Ordered that ring and new chain, just in case.

Do you have a rack or something like that on your bike to mount gear?

I have a Topeak Beamrack that mounts on the seatpost, but I think I'm going to leave it off and strap a stuffsack under the saddle. Anything else that I can't strap to the forks or the handlebars will go in the backpack.

You don't have fancy fork cages though. Wanna use it?

I'd definitely use it on bike-camping trips, but I don't think I'll be able to make this weekend work. I tweaked the front derailleur and shifting from the granny gear is spotty. Plus I've got some family headed in for Thanksgiving.

Will it be too cold to ride Goodwater Rim in a couple weeks? I'm going to want to test out the new 1x system when it gets in.

Eric and I were talking about day tripping it some time in the near future.  Let's throw on some layers and go.

I've been biking into work at night.  Temps are down into the low 30s and I still sweat.  It's amazing how much heat the body generates when you're cycling.

TRD270 wrote:We need a Moab trip in the not too distant future

Yass.  I was thinking March, but I'd go sooner too. Can you get a weekend away?

Tweaked as in misadjusted or tweaked as in bent? I've got my old derailleur kicking around if you want to throw it on? We could make a day trip out of it if you don't have time for an overnighter.

Full weekend will be a no go, school's gonna make it a bitch to and to further complicate things I'm probably going to get bumped to day shift.

Good news is, when i'm done with school and instructing I should have much better days to go play
