I recently had the pleasure to go down to Ennis, MT with the family. We stayed in Erin’s aunt’s friends place- Judi. She was nice enough to let us stay in her place while they were not there. It was an amazing house on the Madison River with views of the backside of Big Sky. The house was on the Gravelly Range Road, so I got to go for a ride on the 29er up the road, which climbed pretty seriously in its entirety.
A great example of what brake fluid looks like on a DH bike after not being bled for a few years. Once it becomes “dirty”, it loses its ability to regulate temps in the system. Bleed your brakes while it’s still spring time to avoid down time during riding season.
I’m sure that most who read this know that I have been a bicycle mechanic for most of my life. I really enjoy working on bikes and helping people. Plus I find joy in using my skills. Last year, I did a fair amount of bike repairs for friends and friends of friends. This year, I hope to take it a step further. I am now advertising bike repair. If you are interested in having me work on your bike, please give me a call and set up an appointment. 260-5878. I offer reasonable rates and quick turn around. I have a full service bike shop and would be delighted to address your bike repair needs.
