Cool2 Tucson Area Banter Board (TABB2!)

So, I agree with Low Down. I banter like everyone else, but I really liked that I could go here and find links to threads concerning rides in a much easier search.
However, more often than not, the rides are discussed completely in the TABB instead of being linked to. The same with ride reports.
TABB is stickied, if we can use it to make the announcements of rides and other high priority items that may interest us all, it would be fantastic.

Perhaps we can move the banter to here
As much banter as we have, this will always be on the top page (or two on a bad day)!

Shift lever T/S

Easy one. Carefully bend the lever back and see if the problem persists.

If the lever stays on the bike, grab near the shaft with pliers to stabilize and use another pair of pliers to bend the lever out away from the case. Slowly to keep things from breaking.

If you take the lever off, you don't have to be as careful because you won't damage the shifter shaft cranking on the lever

Bending the lever back is nothing more than putting a band-aid on the problem. Until you address that, your problems will persist.

Oh, the root cause?

Becky (and her bike) keep taking naps.

Tell her to stop. Problem solved.

I just spent $30 on ordering a stronger shift lever, so if she breaks that, shes on her own

In my defense most of those naps were before it was lowered and the other one was in sand.

Let he who has never napped in sand cast the first stone.

My rear tire does a fair job of casting stones...well, it used to. There isn't much tread left anymore....
