    I have this and it works great for checking pressure for accuracy. I compare it to the pumps gauge and it’s usually within a pound or two.

    Has anyone added a lock point to the bed of their truck similar to this? I know there's no way to really prevent theft of a bike/etc locked in the bed, but the factory D-Ring tie down would just take a torx bit or a quick zip with a tool being thin gauge and likely not hardened. Any other ideas for a lock point? Nice thing about this is I won't forget the lock at home.

    Hey all, need some advice. I took a gnarly fall with my bike a week or so ago have haven’t ridden since. Well today, I noticed that my rear brake was squishy so we did a brake bleed, but it’s still squishy so I brought it to a local bike shop to help me out. I’m thinking I have a cracked cylinder that leaks over time.

    Regardless, they just found this crack is my seat tube today that I somehow missed. Bike is a Yeti SB66 with a carbon frame. Any idea on how to repair this, or even if a repair is posible?

    If there was a way to downvote this, I would. Definitely do not want to move on to something else

    It’s very likely repairable. $300-600+ depending on choice of finish.

    Google carbon bike frame repair. Below are two good options.

    https://www.applemanbicycles.com/repair
    https://calfeedesign.com/carbon-repair/

    I was in a similar position earlier this year, but decided to sell the frame and start fresh. And yes the buyer was fully informed and aware that the frame was cracked.

    Hm okay. I’ll have to try to find something near the Colorado Springs area since I don’t have the time to ship anything... hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks for pointing this out to me!

    I’m a Yeti man myself so I hope you can get her fixed up.

    Hey man you should try reaching out to Yeti. They may give you a great deal on a newer frame or complete bike. That is if you can prove you were the original owner.

    Edit: You are just down the street and that may help.

    I did reach out to them to see if they can ensure if a repair is even possible and if done right, the bike with be structurally fine. Unfortunately, I just bought this bike from the original owner about 2 years ago... I guess we'll see what happens!

    Wifey just finished 6 months ago. It’s been so good to have a normal life again.

    I run the same one. It’s worked perfect for two years now.

    This needs to be on a T-shirt.

    Shit. Didn’t consider that. Oh well, we’re committed. Coming out next week. Let’s ride!

    That explains a lot...:boink:

    Dude! You ok? Broken arm buddies?

    Most times a good carbon repair is more reliable than original. Kinda like a broken bone. If you need some recs in the area shoot me a message.

    As for the brake, too hard to diagnose. Seals, cylinders, lines... I’d just get a new set...

    There are some trail closures at Kingdom. There was a bunch of news about it over the winter, but as Covid ramped up, it kind of disappeared from the news. Trailforks shows the areas that are closed.

    They have some covid info on their site: https://www.kingdomtrails.org/covid-19-faqs If you click the eligible counties link, it looks they are asking people from the Pittsburgh area to not ride there (depending on which county you live in). You're also supposed to buy a membership to ride there.

    Other than that, there are plenty of great breweries in Vermont that you can hit along the way.

    Is rotating rotors a thing? Going over my bike before my trip to the bike park Monday and noticed my rear rotor is worn. It's still stopping but it could probably stand to be replaced. Unfortunately, a new rear rotor won't come in on time. So I was thinking of putting the front rotor on the rear and vice versa just until the new rotor comes in. Is that a viable temporary fix or nah?

    If the rear is worse/more worn, why would you put it on the front? Wouldnt you want the better stopping rotor on the front?

    I have a terrible habit of riding my rear brakes more than my front. I can go an entire ride and not touch my front brakes. Really terrible habit from my BMX days.
