Looks like good times last night too bad my clutch was scorched but I was able to get it replaced today.
I'm having an issue trying to gear down my front sprocket I haves tried to hammer and torch the nut but having no luck I am a scrawny guy so if any crossfit champions of cnf would like to take the challenge let me know I'm currently out of ideas

Have you changed it before? Swing by your local tire shop and have them zip it off with a proper gun, tighten it back on enough to get back home.

We stopped by at the first tower from Four Corners. We were running late and thought that spot would be closer to watch. Fireworks were small but seeing all at the same time was kind of cool.
Will I do it again? No.

But by all means don't let me spoil the party, ride on and have fun.
I would join the festivities if I could but I'll be viewing fireworks from the SQNF peaks.

Good idea, convinced one of the tire shops to loosen the nut for me.

Holy Jim Trail is a pretty mellow route. Just start at the waterfall and work your way up. Big bike friendly.....
