Well I just wrote up one hell of a race report...and lost it when I hit submit

So heres the short version

Went into the race not knowing how my new suspension would work. Made some adjustements to keep the front end from sliding out at every turn. Adjustmets worked great for race day but now that I was going faster had issues with rear end sliding out if any decent amount of power was applied in turns. At the end of the race started talking with the number 3 finisher in my class and when he found out about my handling issue he suggested I loosen up the rebound a bit. I added a bigger rear sprocket and took 3 clicks out of the rear rebound along with some other maintenace. Preliminary testing shows the rear end to be alot tighter...

6 days to go till the next one

Are you headed over Saturday night? Crank and I are both planning to arrive some time in the late afternoon-early evening.

Are you going to be riding pacaug again tommorow? I'm thinking of heading over earlier and riding there but I don't know anything about it. Where to park, how well marked the loop is etc.

Nope, just realized how close this is to the enduro start. Want to do it?

Also, I do have the chainbreaker and press.
