STOLEN: 2008 Giant TCR C1, Carbon Road Bike with Ultegra Groupset

My beloved 2008 Giant TCR C1 size M/L was stolen a couple weeks ago, the bike was spotted on Craigslist for a while and eventually disappeared. This bike is pretty uncommon so hopefully it will be spotted. Was stolen in Olympic Village area.

Full carbon fiber frame with Ultegra groupset and two carbon fiber water bottle cages, Shimano PD-A530 pedals.

Reward if returned. Or you see it anywhere, please contact me or the police! Police report #VA17-258027

The photos are from the theifs ad. He removed a couple items already so these best show what to look for.

Re: Speeding cars on Fromme

Who do they work for, or how can I get in touch with their employer? I'd like to at the very least give a reminder to slow down.

PS: I have know idea why my original post is formatted so weird... I try to edit it, but it looks normal in the edit window??

Speeding cars on Fromme

I was up riding on Fromme this afternoon and at 2:15 as I was pedaling up between the first and second switchbacks at the time, and three vehicles <span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">came speeding down the hill. Two of them were white newer pick up trucks (I think silverados) and the third one was a red wagon. (Older Subaru I think but can’t remember)</span>

The two white pick up trucks came down first and as we realize what was happening we blocked the third car to try and talk to them to slow down. The guy saw us trying to stop him and made a big effort to try and get around to the point his tires were very close to the edge of the ditch almost hitting us with this vehicle. Once he stopped we walked around to the driver door to talk to him to slow down along with the other trucks and he just replied with “Screw off”, and sped off down the hill again.

<span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">Does anyone know these cars or where they were coming from? There was one person in each car. If they are working, I would like to report their driving to their employer.</span>

<span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">There were lots of people all over the hill, children, dogs.. someone could have easily popped out of a run and gotten smoked by these guys. No care to anyone around them.</span>

<span style="-webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;">Thanks</span>

Well, after playing with it for way too long I finally figured it out, so I took some photos to help other people if this happens.]

2016 SRAM X01 Trigger Shifter Assembly

Forgot to take a picture of the little 'Y' bracket as well, but I found where that goes. There is a little slot for the small spring to go in, and the other end of it pushes onto the Y bracket and the plate goes over top, R side up.

Only thing I do not know is where the bigger spring goes, anyone?

Thanks

2009 Rockshox WC repair or replace???

Thanks for the comments. I gave them a call yesterday and the guy I spoke with was very knowledgeable. I'll be taking it to them to get repaired this time and if anything serious happens down the line I guess it will be time to upgrade.

2009 Rockshox WC repair or replace???

I have a 2009 Rockshox WC front fork with some internal issues. It started leaking a lot of oil out the top right side at the end of last year. Took it to the shop and they replaced all the seals and did a full service. Now it doesn't leak oil, but if I ride on it while keeping weight on the front it will slowly collapse until about 1 inch of travel left.

If I pull up it will extend all the way out and process repeats. I was in Whistler over the weekend and they said they could fix it but I don't live there so I didn't want to leave my bike. Called Dunbar today and they said parts aren't available for this fork now so they won't take it??

So not sure what to believe, and what to do? Anyone have any idea what could be the problem? I know there are aftermarket cartridges if that is the issue? Is there a way to test that? I was also told it could be just a leaking bladder?? I am comfortable taking it apart myself, just not sure how to test it to know what is the problem.

Or is it time to just get something newer?

Thanks

Hitch Mounted Swing Rack suggestions

Can't seem to find any good current comparison threads of current racks out there, anyone have any of these or have any suggestions?

I just got a new SUV and looking for a new 2-bike rack that can tilt back to open the rear gate on the car, not sure which one to get.

Personally I would use this for both mountain and road bikes so the North Shore rack is out. Below are three I have in-mind.

Kuat NV-2

Thule T2 Pro

Hollywood Sport Rack

Cheers

What does the North Shore think? (merged)

I used one of the test goggles they had at the start of the previous ski season.. was super pumped on them hearing all the info.. but once I used them, you couldn't take them off my head fast enough.

Pros:
The speed is cool, but slow to react
….

Cons:
-the temp reading can be WAY off.. to get temp between your face temp and the air is very hard, and very inaccurate
-the goggles are huge and heavy
-the lenses are no good (maybe just the ones I tested, prefer my Oakley lenses WAY more)
-the screen is not adjustable and on my face, I could only see half of it.
-thats all i can think of off the top of my head

I did one run in them, and just handed them back.. no thanks

Recommendations for backpack to carry DSLR camera stuff while biking

great, thanks for the tips.

Those f-stop bags are sweet, I've seen them before, but they out of my budget for now. Plus I think they are still a little bit too big for what I'm looking for, but hopefully in the future I'll be able to pick one up.

Recommendations for backpack to carry DSLR camera stuff while biking

I am looking to get a smaller sized backpack that I could also take biking, and suggestions? I know DaKine also makes photo bags, but they seem to be pretty big.

I would probably be carrying:
-DSLR Camera
-two lenses
-flash
-small accessories…

Also would be nice to have a spot for a camel pack, but then again, I would be scared of it leaking and getting onto the camera equipment.

I am thinking of something like this, but not sure if a backpack or slingbag would be better. (The slingbag locks you bag with the angle strap, and one across the bottom)

Lowepro SlingShot 100AW

LowePro Fastpack 100 (Not sure if this one has extra straps to between the shoulder straps to hold it in place…)

GoPro HD editing software

to record, no. The camera has an option. To put all the images together.. im not sure about PC, but for mac, I found quicktime pro to be the easiest by a mile. File--[HTML_REMOVED] open --[HTML_REMOVED] image sequence --[HTML_REMOVED] select any image from that sequence… and done.
