Back in fat finally. Last of the parts came in today and I took it out for a shakedown run. Gonna need new brakes. Pistons seem tight after sitting for a year. They were noisy as hell and deserve to die

So we got the heck out of Dodge for the holiday weekend. AZ bound we were early on TGD.

I rode twice. Once with Katz up in Kingman and then out at SARA Park the next day. Both were wonderful rides and it's always a pleasure to ride with Katz.

I was expecting a delivery to arrive late in the afternoon today, so I felt good about having the whole day to ride locally.

So, I am climbing La Tuna and just before I reach the saddle, I get a call stating that my delivery was rescheduled to arrive in one hour! BTW, La Tuna is starting to see some regrowth and the light rain we just had seems to have partially erased the stench up there. I was originally planning to climb La Tuna, travel East on the ridge way and drop down off the mountain. I was going to pedal across the canyon and climb up to GSC, ride the ST, then climb up to Cherry Canyon and loop around all the ST up there. But I had to cut it short. I did have enough time to travel East along the ridge way, though. So I floored it and pedaled hard and fast to make it home in time. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL day here. Ideal riding weather.

In case any of you haven't heard. Niner Bikes filed for bankruptcy. They are a local company to me just a few miles away. I always liked the name Niner but thought it limited them on wheel size offerings. I'm not saying that's the reason for their demise but it is an interesting thought.

Was out riding home with the mrs. this evening.
Fucking hell if a few wild boars didn't run out in front of us.
Felt like hitting a wall. The Mrs. got away fairly easy, a bit sore ribs and some minor scrapes.
I took full floor, broke an eyebrow (friggin mess), smashed my glasses (DIY titanium glasses :-( ), strained right wrist, strained 3 fingers on the right hand, 2 on the left.

How's that for a day at the office)

Magura :D

I've seen that. I've always liked their bikes and had a few friends who owned them. I almost bought one. I hope they get through their bump in the road.

Ouch! Glad you're ok. I hit a wild boar one morning on my way to work 10 years ago. Came out of nowhere, I figured 300 lbs. I hit it on the head and destroyed my bumper. Can't imagine running into them with my bike........ :o

Yeah this and their apparently crappy customer service have been all over the boards lately. Sounds like a mess, had no idea. I bet they start making ebikes after they get gobbled up. Maybe even 27.5? :)

Now you know, here it's Halloween all year :-D

Not so bad, just looks impressive. I've seen worse. As long as nothing's broken, a few days will do wonders.

Here's a quote from Chris Sugoi on this matter:

"When I co-founded Niner back in 2005 it was due to my passion for bikes. That passion has only grown stronger through the years. It’s a blast, and has bee, learning so much about this industry and meeting so many passionate people who share my love of cycling. In recent years, Niner’s growth has slowed. We need to be able to grow to continue to be innovative and make great, reliable products. So, we have found a local Colorado group of businessmen, who are passionate about cycling, who call themselves Columbia Basin Partners and they have agreed to purchase the company. Through the rumor mill or misinterpreting how Chapter 11 bankruptcy works, you may have heard that we are going out of business. This is simply not true. In order to make the sale happen, we have had to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy which allows us to restructure our finances. We will emerge from Chapter 11 in roughly 60 day, on January 30, 2018 on more solid financial footing. In the meantime, we are well-funded and able to meet our financial obligations. Business is as usual around the offices. We are shipping bikes, helping riders with concerns, including warranty concerns, and all of our regular daily duties that makes Niner tick. Our team remains intact and is doing what we always do – working to support our riders and our local bike shops in whichever ways they need. My main goal, and our goal as a company, is to put big grins on the faces of mountain bikers and sure we are able to continue to support mountain biking. The 31 team members I have the pleasure of working with each day are avid riders. And we all believe in the power of mountain biking, the importance of supporting trail access and the ability for mountain biking to have an incredible impact on people’s lives. We’re in this for the long haul and soon will have the ability to innovate more and continue to create incredible products. And as always, we’ll continue to push for trail access so riders have great places to ride.

We appreciate your support and hope to see you on the trails.

Peace,

Chris Sugai"

Ouch Mr. Magura!! I leave this place for one week in Florida and you start hitting wild boars? Get well soon, and I hope you get to eat your roadkill. :D

MiniTrail: a very cool bike!

I am back on my bike after a week in the tropics. Not a bad place but I missed my dirt.

TY sti. I replaced the brakes this week and it was like a power boost. I knew the brakes were dragging but I had no idea how bad it was. New shimmies are quiet and free rolling :cool:

Some classic bridge art and a small owl from last night
