What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

How's the bike though, that place is hard on the bike in the wet!
Yep, for sure. The bike, and I were sodden and totally covered in muck. Buckle was awash really. The high dry side was good though, and grippy as. After the ride, I had to completely change my clothes, as there was no way I could get back in the car like that. When I got home, my kids looked at me, and both laughed out loud, as my face was covered in it. Anyway, rinsing out my riding gear in the laundry, I was amazed at how much sand there was in the sink. Which might explain why it is so hard on the bike in the wet. BTW, I washed my bike as soon as I got home. And am drying my helmet, gloves, camelback and shoes on the hydronic panels, for tomorrow. I know it's not kosher for the trails really, but I just love the slipping and sliding. It adds another dimension to the ride.

Somehow also had the compression/lockout on 2018 35mm Revelations reverse - open is now closed, closed is open - which has me puzzled. If anyone has any tips/ideas, would be appreciated.
If it all works fine then I would guess that the lockout is on 180 degrees out.

The lockout dial on my Revs sits on a hex or squared headed bolt. Maybe just remove it and rotate it back in its right position and you are done.

Yeah that was my first thought so popped the cap off to see if it had slipped somehow, but doesn't seem to be it. It's strange, lockout/open still works, but the dial direction is reversed. Will have another squiz tomorrow, but might take it down to the local shop on Mon to ask if they can have a look.

To be fair, your bikes pretty schmick aswell.
I was chanting longer slacker lower on the new models, boost is unfortunate so need a whole new bike, also didn't work :)

To be fair ole Bronson 1 has still got much more to give, and wife said I could do a convoluted handlebar swap so I could get new uncut Deity's which are just so nice to ride, she gets mine which will be perfect width for her trail riding aspirations, her friend gets her med width bars to replace silly narrow XC bars she has now. Great deal. Except at Xmas I get an empty handlebar box. There's always a catch.

Good one but awww crap. I was looking for a MTB ride but ended up doing a longish one on the roadie instead. Would have been great to meet up.

Next time.
Yes, we need to get better at organising stuff. But man, sometimes it's like herding cats around here.

Next time we'll heads up for a visit to Appin or Kentlyn. If you've never been to either before, you need to be shown around.

I hear you and more often than not it is just easier to pack up and go ride.

Maybe next time.
