I know that not everyone will read this, but if you a for sure coming please post here. With all thats gone on I've lost my list and would like some kind of head count.
I also post this on Facebook Cache Rally.
I might not be able to make it, discovered bad beating in rear wheel today. I was changing my rear tire and had about 1/8" wobble lateral in the sprocket. Pulled the tire, inspected the bearing, made we had the #8 spacer in right, reinstalled and still had wobble. The axle had a tiny movement, so we drove the bearing out. It was low on grease, but otherwise felt okay.
Cush dampers still in nice shape. Got the new Mitas E07+ rear mounted, new sprockets (JT stock gearing) and chain (D.I.D.) so it should be quick to put it all back together to roll.
Well, now I'm committed to install a new bearing and seal in the sprocket hub. Ordered one from partzilla. Paid expedited shipping. My confirmation said I could expect 7-8 day delay. Sh!t.
But, Fingers still crossed.
If it arrives by Monday, I can leave Tues and get there mid friday. If not, I'll be disappointed.
Got my shipping notice today. Should get the bearing late Tuesday. That means Wednesday install (my Wee is 70 miles from home at friend's place. Its a 1300 + mile ride for me. I'm in it for the pleasure not endurance, so sorry to say I'll be missing you all. Disappointed for sure. But life goes on.
Autocorrect is my new enema.
Relax and have a homebrew.
