    hello ratz, a quick question on the rwc bb. Do you use the wave washer on the SRAM cranks or just tighten them up? I have used the two 1mm spacers between the frame and r/l bb another question is do I use any covers between the rubber gaskets and cranks? I have a strange washer marked 24x1mm that was in the packet with the wave washer. Is this used or is it for a different setup? Thanks.

      If this is the RWC and not the XD-15 then it's install the the wave washer on the drive side of the crank arm spindle. Install crank in BB and torque to spec. If there is no left right play then you don't need the 24x1mm This will usually be the case with a GXP crank. If you have left and right play in the crank set, then install the 24x1mm washer and then the wave washer between the 24x1mm and the BB.

    Check out the headrests on the CatTrike bikes. Looks much better than ours. As a neck fusion survivor, I need something a little more adjustable

    Tom, I locked mine down with a small hose clamp. Just pull the boot up and clamp the shaft.

      Thanks. I've never looked under the boot so it may become obvious, but a picture of what you have done would be appreciated (if you have time).

    Hey Robert, At the retreat you mentioned there was a way to lock down the front shock on the S30. ...knowledge which I never gleaned from you. Would you explain how to do that? I would like to see how different the bike feels and handles.
    Thanks

    Hi Bob, It was great meeting you this past weekend. I'm looking for a little more help with the Q rings we talked about. I found the "Q Ring Upgrade thread and followed the Jenson link. I'm not sure what tooth count I should get. ...34, 36,38, 44? Also, I looked on the Back Country website and did not see the Q Rings. Any assistance would be appreciated.

      Bob, The q-ring arrived and I'm working on the installation. I would like to make sure it's in the correct position before reassembly. ...so, when the crank is in a horizontal position pointed forward there is one bolt hole just above it and one just below it. Should the #4 position on the ring go in the bolt hole above or below the crank. ( In the pictures on the q-ring thread it is below.) Thanks

      #4 on the bolt below the crank. Or another way to say it the BOLT that leads the crank through it's revolution.

    Hello
    This snow is finally melting in northern Michigan ! I went out to the parking lot with my Silvio for the first time this afternoon. Yikes! Please send me your script for learning how to ride. Another thing, how do you park this thing when you're going downtown for coffee?

      Don't get frustrated. Pretend you're a little kid again learning to ride and expect to be wobbly and erratic. I am steady enough to ride with my group after two weeks of 15 minute evening practices.
