|New trails are do not make themselves:|

Now, the often asked question is "how much does it weigh?". Honestly I do not know. I assume it is under 30 pounds, but I do not know by how much. Either way, I am fully loving my warm weather riding with proto.
That being said, I have been spending time dreaming of winter adventures....

From Matt Kurke:
I will be coordinating a trailwork session at Gamehaven this Friday evening. I know it’s not the best day for it but it was the only time that worked with my work schedule and didn’t look like rain this week. We will only work for about 2 hours. The work will mostly consist of completely clearing the trail that was rough cut last fall so that the ditch witch can be used in shaping. So we will be pulling out stumps and further clearing overhang and undergrowth. If you have a chain saw and know how to use it please bring it along. Otherwise axe’s and loppers will be the tools to use. I will have some tools with me as well. Meeting in the scout parking lot. Bring gloves and water with as well. Any questions please email me @ email@example.com. If you know anyone interested please pass on this info and have them email me to be added to the contact list. Thanks.

|I ride, my bike gets dirty.|
Well, after the deposit of the usual amount to my Swiss bank account I got my chain ring and proceeded to thrash it as best I could to prove it was worthy of the Charly stamp of awesomeness. I now have several races, plus hours and hours of bashing including slamming the thing into downed logs as I got my trusty Proto up and over. I have this to report...nothing. With my X9 clutch derailleur I cannot get the chain to move off the chain ring unintentionally. The product just plain works. After many frustrating moments with my MRP and other systems, I am super happy that I cannot not only ride with confidence in my drive train, but I can now remodel my guest house with the checks that are now rolling in. So, if you want a 1x system without shelling out the Sram XX1 costs, I highly recommend taking your business to Wolf Tooth. Also, I am excited for their future products that are to come out, but we'll have to wait for those....
This last 10 days I have been extruding gallons of glop out of my nose and lungs. I think I am dealing with allergies, and some days are definitely worse than others. No matter, my rides have suffered.
Also, is it premature for me to hope that my name will be added to this list? I mean, can I expect people to already be dropping out so that I am no longer wait listed?
