Sorry I forgot to say that too. BIG thanks to whoever sprung for the brewskis and pizza.
JATO- that's weird about your forks. I'd imagine having oil in there makes a HUGE difference. There's no telling what you'll find when you dig into used bikes. One of the fork legs in my Ascot must have had the original fork oil in it the first time I changed it- there was some major funk in there.
Fox- somehow it didn't hit me you were a railroader. I worked for NS for a couple of years, but WAY up in Ohio. Too cold for anybody raised in the lowcountry. I pretty much do the 11 PM/5 AM thing too. REALLY looking forward to the day when I can pitch my clock radio.
