Too Funny I just got SchWalaby to replace my old studded tires with a brand new pair of their ICE Gripper Pro tires. This is the 396 studs per tire version. This just goes to show it never hurts to ask. I don't even need to send back the old tires. My tires are 11 years old???  Not they are useful for anything. Now we just need some more ICE.

I just like a few more screws then JP does. It definitly gives you a little more bite. I think it's great that you got new tires. those things will do well.  As for chains, wedid that before screw tires. With the old rim brakes you put the chains on with the tire deflated and the pressure of the tire secured them. Now its easier with discs. In a pinch you could just use zip ties. Google bike chains. there's different types including diy ones. They tend to wear out quickly. and don't hold as well on ice.

This is a good deal (Tom). Its right in Rutvegas too. Fox 36 talas, fox rear shock, good brakes all done up. 1500 in parts easy. Could be stolen although  the seller seems to knows a lot about bikes.

First ride of the season in the woods on a trail. I went across the street and picked up a bit. Real dry for the most part. All the stream crossings are deep and cold. Its amazing I skied on some of this 3 weeks ago.

Sounds good Bob. I have to wait to hike the high peaks (don't want to offend/cause erosion), so luckily there's a couple of golf courses open for me to hammer out on. The bike path is always a nice and quick workout with great views. I have to get a new front tire for the MC before any long rides can happen, and letting the state fill some potholes first doesn't hurt.

Bob, if you ever get a chance to grab the guitar from the cabin while out MBin', do so, and I will reward you with a golf lesson.......Or maybe teach you nights in white satin.

I would Joe but I dont have a key. Shane has one so I will have to get him to go some time. That area is a great place to Hike right now. No LT patrol to deal with. We could probably get to the cabin from my house in about an hour maybe a little more. Its white up there again. The last of my snow banks disappeared today. I went over to visit my Mom today. Washed windows, cleaned gutters, cut some trees down, removed a Washer and installed a new one went to Lunch. My Van ran great, NY has some nice roads. All in excellent shape. Vermont fails on Roads. Very sad.

We did about a 6 mile trail work mission in the rain this morning. My trails are cleared and ready to ride less a few wet spots. Shane came down and we cut, chopped and sawed through all the material in the way. Eye poker arm slash elimination with Fiskars tools. leaks are out too.

Well I tried and failed to post a picture. It doesnt matter. I raked a bunch today and stacked 4 cords of wood. Never got on my bike but Stan did. He rode Saxon, said Tiki god trail was buff. We are having very high winds right now. 60-70mph gusts on my wind gauge. My buff yard has leaves on it again. At least the thatch is gone. My two Kale beds are ready for seed, salad garden is also planted. I have a bunch of seeds in little peat pots which have not yet sprouted. 20 chicks on Thursday. Winter is gone, growing season is here.

Nice bike for a reasonable price. Not the best suspension but fine for the price.

Shane and I spun a loop in the HTF. Not bad for a late afternoon pedal. We were out for 2 hours. I felt good for an early ride

Well the season is well underway. I rode Saxon today and it was buff. Very smooth compared to the HTF. We rode the HTF Sunday and its pretty beat. The trails have gone from smooth paths to root and rocks, its like the long trail in there. It took about 5 years with the biker traffic to do that. We rode Chandler ridge a couple weeks back. That was excellent but the bugs around those parts are really thick. Shane's tea tree oil and peppermint oil repellent works pretty well. It was like night and day when I put that on.

Shane and I rode Chandler ridge yesterday. We left in the rain intent in riding at all costs. We got down to the parking lot and it stopped raining. We rode the loop backwards which was a good way to do it. By the time we started climbing the south end of the ridge the sun was out. We didnt get wet at all. The rocks on Lester Hollow were slimy, very slippery. The nettles were also pretty bad in a couple places. Overall an excellent ride on an excellent trail. Over 8 miles of travel and we only saw 2 other bikers.

Shane and I parked at huber and went in on new trail eventually to the top and back. Busy in there probably passed 20 people on just the new trail coming back. Bone dry no mud the corners on flow are all Sandy. Felt like I never stopped riding for the winter. Used my big ring a bunch.

No riding saturday for Bob. He will be at the State surplus auction in Berlin. He wants more stuff to sell and work on. I guess Stan, you'll have to find some other big ring rider to ride with.

Joe you need to stop painting indoors. State surplus auction? Stan doesn't need people to ride with, he rides out front alone anyway because nodoby can keep up with him. He has probably done Saxon 20 times this year already.

Town Wide Yard Sale Hinesburg and Monkton Saturday. I got the fever!
