Bike Maintenance 9-2-10

Postby iLuvTechnical » Mon Aug 30, 2010 5:09 pm

I am seeing how many people would be interested in getting together for a little Bike Maintenance get-together Thursday night since the trails will be wet anyway.

This could be a great opportunity to socialize, learn, teach, drink, and make your Iron Horse work just a little bit smoother.

Post up if interested :dance:

This is not one of those things I am putting together WITHOUT replies.
No replies = not wasting my time :snooty:
Replies = I will be glad to organize it :D

Where are you thinking? I bent my derailleur hanger tonight at Sugar, so I was going to head to Hall's Thursday anyway. If anyone has a hanger alignment tool, it'd be great if they brought it!

I would be interested, but would only work if we did it at my place as the wife has a meeting that night and I will be car-less. I have tools, a workstand, lubricants, and a grill and a garage(would need to be cleaned up a little but can do that Wednesday night) I don't have a derailleur alignment tool though, but have most other tools.

I have an alignment tool. Not sure if I can make it Thursday, but it's available in Iowa City if someone is interested in swinging by to pick it up.

Okay, it's on like Donkey Kong :D

Snoop's garage. For address, PM greenfast.
Thursday the 2nd
6pm
B.Y.O.B. and grill'ns
Bring whatever tools you think Snoop may NOT have and maybe an extra bike stand would be nice (I DON'T have one)


This might be a go opportunity to get rid of some things you have been wanting to sell, trade, or donate. I know I would look at a very cheap headset if someone had one.

Too bad we don't have a guy like Kevin from I.C. that hosts "wrenching sessions" and he does all/(most) of the work for everyone b/c he enjoys it :whistle:

Who else is coming?

That is too bad isn't it. You should buy yourself a good stand, a full set of tools, and a truing stand. All you'll need then are some friends.

Oh, I have plenty of "friends". I never said I was interested in getting together w/ you all outside of the "biking world" :lol:
Anyway, who needs friends when they can associate and socialize w/ A-HOLES like you to be able to make fun of :laughing-rolling:

FYI, I would rather bypass getting the tools and "friends" if I had a new bike!

Look look. We all know Noel is a tool. No need to point out the obvious!

Sometimes the obvious needs to be pointed out. Thanks for doing so Chuck. Now could you go to a city council meeting and start doing some of the same?

Really, I'm just trying to get Chris to stop calling me. Text messaging was invented for a reason.

Sounds like two locations of wrenching went down, perfect to get peoples' bikes smooth for what is turning out to be a fantastic weekend for riding. Here are some pix from one of the sessions...

i rode by yer house at about 11:30pm. The grill was outside but all the lights were off. I rang my bell. In hindsight, I am glad you weren't out there ready for a couple more beers. I had to be at work early on Friday.

No it's more of a, there was a topic posted about a maintenance night, noone really responded to it, and then come to find out there was 5 people at another house doing the same thing, and not a word to anyone else about it other then the 5 people that were there. That is fine, just don't know why we can't all just get along? :romance-grouphug:
