Avid Elixirs for 2012

I've never had a problem with bubbles in my avid brakes. I usually bleed them like car brakes and put the system under vacuum before I add new fluid.

Race the Ranch

Some people shouldn't be allowed nice things.

There's a Ulock on the seat tube. LOL

When's registration open up for Race the Ranch?

Is the course open before the race?

Race the Ranch

If you're in a high traffic area and your bike is outta sight it will get stolen. Remember that.

I have never had anything stolen because if I know I have to leave it out of sight I won't bother trying to leave it unattended. Even camping out in the boonies, our bikes go inside the vehicles.

There are some pretty crafty thieves in this town and they know when the race is, so don't lock it up outside. You'd be better off hitting up a camp ground outside the general area.

The Ranch just hired a new guy to replace me, so it will be interesting to see how the course changes.

Locks really only keep the honest people from stealing stuff. I treat most places like the village in Whistler. If I'm not watching it someone else is.

Thanks for the info.

Bring a bike lock if you're gonna be camping….just sayin

I think every year, theres been… 4-5 bikes stolen?

It'll have two 1" cables on it and be locked to my trailer when its outside.

Is the parking lot big enough for RV's? That would be the ideal place to stay.

Is Quebec subsidizing this world cup team?

If they do it'll be the first ever good use of my tax dollars.

Sun Peaks!!!

Is there a reason why Sun Peaks doesn't open earlier? Is snow the problem or just number of riders?

Abbotsford (2009 to 2011)

We did a few laps of Sumas last Sunday. The water was running down the trail and onto the road at the end of the devils head section. We piled some rocks and diverted the water from the trail back to the normal flow path down the bank.

Not sure if it was cool for us to do that or not but we figured it was better than water running down the last section of trail and people riding through it. :???:

Absolutely. I've got a couple of buddies who grow, they paid for all new park equipment for their neighborhood park last year. Being a grower or dealer doesn't necessarily mean you're a violent criminal.

Don't believe everything you read in the province. There are a lot of grower to dealer partnerships that manage to avoid becoming involved with that shit.

I agree that they may not be involved directly with violence but if you're growing and selling a substanial amount you can't control where you're product ends up or who it ends up supporting. Not to mention what that person or group does with the profits from their sales.

I don't believe much I read in the province. I grew up in the valley. Several people I knew growing up are dead because of the choices they made and people they associated with. All of them involved in the drug trade.

People who grow substanial amounts, sell it and say "Oh I just grow it; I'm not involved." are being niave.

I'm not saying there isn't people out there that grow and sell who have scruples. Those are the ones you don't read about and probably never will.

wait so my buddy who has 2 plants killed sam brown?

If he's growing it for organized crime to sell it. IMO he is.

I doubt with 2 plants he's supporting the local economy and claiming to be a farmer.

it's about living in a small community where agriculture is a large portion of the local economy and not throwing stones.

Agriculture??? LMAO. Looks like its doing the community a world of good too.

It's called working for organized crime. Hide behind the "I just grow" all you want.

Anyone involved in the business of growing, selling or smuggling weed needs to realize they are partially repsonsible for the people who get killed or die as a result of there actions; no matter how far down the line they are. If you're involved you're hands are bloody too.

Race Face MEC and Cycles Lambert - things are heating up

I'm pretty happy about this. All my dealing with MEC have been good; friendly staff, fairly knowledgeable and decent prices. I'm sick of stupid kids who don't know anything about what they are trying to sell me at the LBS and want full retail for parts when I can buy it online for half the price.

There are a few LBS's that I go to and get good info and service. I've never had bad service at MEC in 10+ years of dealing with them.
