2014-06-18 CCC IBC Ride

The wind started 16G25, which was tough enough, but we hung off of the A-group most of the way. We made the first loop, but as we came up to Belt Line, the clouds had filled in, lightning in the distance, and painful rain spatters began. We ended the ride with the winds reported 24G32.

I wasn’t really feeling like riding, so yay, maybe? I made it home in time to join the family in watching “The Starving Games”. It is to the “Hunger Games” what “Spaceballs” was to “Star wars”.

Later in the evening, I tried to swap cranks for Mark. What a huge pain in the rump. His front derailleur wouldn’t work with a 50/39/30. The FDs I had available are all top pull and his frame ONLY supports bottom pull due to bottle holder mounts. So, to at least try *something* to fix his chain skipping issue, I dismantled his cranks and deburred both sides of every tooth on the middle ring.

Lo! And Behold! No more chain skipping. Spent about 15 mins perfecting the trim on the FD, because his chainrings are very slightly warped (probably the whole cranks). Then, adjusting the read derailleur to prevent skipping. Really, we need to zero out his cable, but I was tired. It *seems* like it may be back in business for him with no new parts.
