        good ride last night. Glad I actually finished :)

        ...my bike is a terd. A new bike isn't in the cards, but I may have to invest in some cranks/clip-ins in the near future to replace my wobbly worn out crank that won't tighten up any more and creaks every time I step on it. My bike sounds like walking up creaky old stairs when I ride it. That and my fork is a POS and I probably spend more effort trying to hang onto the handlebars and keep the thing pointed in the right direction than if it just had a solid fork on it. It's really at the not worth upgrading point though, because by the time you do one thing, then another, new components here and there, etc. I my as well just buy a whole new bike with fresh bearings and everything.

          Yes, a good ride for sure. A bit cold near the end, but exciting.

          I hear ya on the bike Nick. That's where I was at last year. My bike was past the point of now return. However, as frustrating as it was I still had fun. Maybe some light upgrades would help keep a smile on your face.

              nick, try going to freewheeler, they have a ton of used cranks, i am sure they can hook you up on the cheap.

                Nick, chances are you rode the bike when the crank arms were loose. this would have basically rounded out that square hole in the arm, making it impossible to tighten back up. new crank arms are usually pretty cheap and will fix that right up.

                        Soooo, tomorrow is supposed to be a high of 50 degrees and snowing in the morning. Thursday however, it mostly sunny and 66.

                        Anyone feel like pushing it back a day?
