race results - no DNF or DQ

Started Sep 26, 2016 0 Replies

Hello all -- my first race in a while - 3/4/5 45+.  In a bit of bad luck, I flatted my tire coming off the practice lap and into the grid.  I ran for a new tire (to my car, not the pit), and got it…Continue

grippy gloves?

I slip off my hoods in the wet.  My bar tape is plenty fine, just the hoods are giving me trouble (sram hoods).  Any leads on full finger, padded, grippy gloves?Continue

Hello all -- my first race in a while - 3/4/5 45+.  In a bit of bad luck, I flatted my tire coming off the practice lap and into the grid.  I ran for a new tire (to my car, not the pit), and got it on just as the whistle blew for the start.  I was in last, last, last place.  I crept up and blew the rear.  I ran to the pit, left my bike and went for a another new tire in my car.  Of course, the race was blown too.  But I wanted some laps and got back in.  I stayed out of the way and finished the…See More

"glacier gloves are indeed grippy.  You hands will get sweaty in warmish(40ish degrees, imo) -weather, but will probably stay warm.  "

"try Glacier Glove if in cooler temps. We use them for CX and they are nice in cold and wet. The Perfect Curve is very grippy. If in warmer weather I am not sure they have the right option but sometimes another avenue to look at is fishing and…"

"Ok I'll back down.... Still would like to know what happened, I couldn't find much info about the mechanism by which the hanger breaks but no doubt better than broken chain stay. Dave"

"As frustrating as this is, my sense is no we are not talking defective parts.  Talking to people on the field the general thought was - better to break a removable hanger than bend / break a drop out.  But what do I know?  This was my…"

broken derailleur hanger - 2011 crux

So, I put together a crux with spare parts and my concerns about the drive train and some bumps and some twigs resulted in a broken derailleur hanger and derailleur.  While I am not too put out by the derailleur or the hanger, I do need to get a new hanger.my question is - this specialized hanger looks pretty cheap and break away.  In that respect it did what it was designed to do.  Is there any wisdom to getting some stronger material hanger?  One place in CO advertises "aircraft quality"…See More

avid shorty ultimate set up

Hello all -- been working on getting a set of avid shorty ultimates put on a couple year old crux.  Following directions closely...I was able to get the rears on in the narrow stance very easily.  The fronts are giving me a headache however...again narrow stance.  One of the arms puts the brake pad just into the edge of the tire.  I have reset the pad in every way I can figure, but it just won't go low enough.  It is almost like the brake pad spacers are too wide to allow the assembly to bottom…See More
