iTunes, Mp3 CD's, and folders

iTunes will organize all of your files into a /band/album/ folder structure, you just have to go to Edit [HTML_REMOVED] Preferences and go to the Advanced tab. Click "Keep iTunes Music folder organized. Reboot iTunes and you should be good to go, although you may need to reimport your files by dragging them to the iTunes window.

Hayes Bleed issue

I have a set of Hayes Mags, 2002 model. I've bled them myself a half dozen times, my friend tried twice and even my LBS gave it a go, still no Hayes stopping joy. I've never not been able to bleed my brakes, I'm pretty comfortable with the process, and have done it successfully dozens of times before.

Here's the problem:

The hose is new (steel braided) and was installed correctly with a new olive at each end. When you open the caliper bleed screw, you have to open it damn near all the way to be able to force fluid through and even then, you're lucky to get the fluid moving. It's almost like there's a blockage in the master cylinder, fluid just doesn't move through it at all.

Anyone ever experience this before?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Trinity's in Heaven

I've been following Trinity's story on NSMB since the first time it was posted. Throughout this time, I have been inspired by the way the riding community has pulled together, and I have been even more inspired by the strength of your family, especially your beautiful baby girl.

My sister is a pediatric uncology nurse here at the IWK in Halifax, and I always wonder how she does what she does. While I'm sure situations like this are hard for healthcare workers, I can barely imagine what you must be going through right now.

6 weeks ago, my own baby girl was born. I think that's why your story has hit me so hard. I can only hope that she is as strong as Trinity, should she come up against the kind of adversity your daughter has faced.

You are truly an inspiration. May Trinity live on through the lives of everyone she touched.

- Jeff, Samantha and Amelia.

are spandies the answer?

If you find that you chafe alot, even with chamois shorts, get yourself a can of Bag Balm from Lee Valley.

Although it says that it's only for Bovine use, it works great for chapping and it's antiseptic too. Put a little bit on the chamois, and the rash will disappear.

biking quotes?

The best real quote (heard it before John Henry used it in their newsletter):

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle,
I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

Dual Ring Chain Guides

Just installed an e13 DRS on my BigHit Comp. Took a bit of playing, but went on perfectly, works great, and I think it will be impossible to drop the chain with this setup. I'm going to run a 26/36 combo as soon as my LBS can get the rings. That should be a great combo for the moderate DH runs around here and all the trailriding I do. If I could actually get the 28/38 rings Truvativ sells, that would be even better, but no one around here can get them.

Own a Road Bike?

i just dotn get it… for me there would be NO motivation whatsoever…:???:

The motivation is the increased speed and fitness it gives you for riding a mountain bike. No matter what, nothing gets you in shape for mountain biking as fast as riding the road.

look what i got in the mail...

I have Holzfellers and a Gigapipe on my BigHit. Love em.

I'm trying to get the Trushift 38/28 ring set to go with my new E-13 DRS. Anyone know where to get these rings? None of my shops carry them, and the online shops don't seem to have em either.

graphic designs - univeristy. where?

The best school in Canada for design (and the ONLY one with a degree in Communication Design, not just a BFA) is NSCAD, the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Yeah it's far away, but if you really want to learn it right, it's the only school worth going to.

PM me for more info on it, if you like.

Paying For Crap

The thing that I fail to understand is why so few people "get" that the actual building of a part and the material involved is such a SMALL percentage of the true cost of that part. Everyone's always like "well that little chunk of metal is only worth a few bucks, why should I pay $30 for it?"

The reason is design, testing, overhead, shipping, packaging and then bike shop costs. There is alot more that goes into a part than the cost of the material alone. It also has everything to do with volume. Not that many of us buy high-end bike equipment. Fewer products=higher prices. Either learn to deal or go get into something cheap.

You know, like golf. Where a simple stick of metal costs $800.

:rolleyes:
