Made it to the top of Potato Hill before I turned around. Sweet Holy Moses but I'd forgotten how brutal the climb on that service road is.

I know it's short notice and a weekday, but Josh and I are going to shuttle laps in LCC tomorrow morning.

I have a tire for you, Eric. If you can ride, I'll bring it.

What time? If you're thinking 8am or earlier I can go before work. If so, Kevin, bring your tire.

We're meeting at 0800 at the parking lot at the mouth of Little Cottonwood, planning to shuttle Quarry until our legs fall off. I'll bring the tire.

I'm almost tempted to try my fix. I glued a piece of inner tube to the sidewall and then reinforced with 3 layers of fiberglass strapping tape. So far it's held 30 psi.

Try it.  It's on the rear and you've got a tube inside, so it won't be a disaster if it lets go. Quarry is right on the road the whole way so if it blows you just hang out and we'll come get ya.

I'll know in the morning, but I think I finally got a tire to hold air, ghetto tubeless. Trick was tubeless-ready tires and a little grease on the valve stem cork.

Self sealing but lighter weight than a slime tube, run lower PSI without risking a pinch flat. I'm going to add a ghetto CushCore setup which should strengthen the sidewalls and let me run an even lower PSI.

Quarry is fun. Chunky AF with some sandy flat-out sections to spice it up. Lots of hiking and biking traffic, we'll start earlier next time.

Nick is threatening to ride Saturday morning, so probably go break him in on Ann's if anyone wants to come enjoy an easy climb. Though i'll probably be without Nick Razz

Ian has his team practice out at Eagle Mountain at 0900 Saturday, so if I ride that's where I'm going to be.

I made this triangle bag yesterday, and I rode EaMo this morning with nothing on my back and nothing in my pockets.  It was awesome.

I have a benchtop thread injector, yes. I even almost know how to use it.

My wife has an embroidery machine, you should come up with a good Olaf Logo. I suggest a bicycle with a large band-aid on it.
