    you got it mike.

    here's a really simple way to lube your rear and front der. cable.

    shift into the largest cog in the rear. stop both the rear wheel AND crank from spinning. now, without turning the cranks, pull the trigger shifter lever with you index 'til you have no more shifts left (in the case of a gripshift system you will roll the shifter to the other end). reach down and pull the housing out from the last cable stop before the rear der. the slack in the cable will allow you move the sections of housing and expose the cable for lubing. this method keeps you from having to loosen the fixing bolt on the rear der.

    for the front der. shift into the smallest cog and the largest chainring. while the wheel and crank are stationary, click the trigger shifter with you index (gripshifters roll it forward) until the shifter reaches the last click. there is now enough slack to move the housing as decribed above.

    while you're at it, inspect the cable for rust, fraying, excessive contamination, or damage to the housing. if thise is the case, consider a new cable and housing. a good interval if you're an anal retentive is every 7 months. 1 year if you've kept out of mud and goop. this goes for brake cables as well.

    you can use prettt much anything to lube the cables. park, finish line, phil's, pedro's, tri-flow in the drip bottle. just make sure it's not a dry lube (white lighting, perdros ice wax, finish line Crytech or cross counrty dry).

    one side note though, if you run Gore Ride-Ons or Avid Flack Jackets, DO NOT lube these systems. they are meant to run completly dry. if you feel you need to wipe the cable down you will need to undo the fixing bolts to remove the cable from the sleeve (Gore) or housing and covers (Avid).

    any questions? confusion? problems?

    that was.......buttery!

    well, just got back and i'm stuffed!

    the rolls as usual were buttery. i think its a four step process. the dough is mixed in a large bowl half filled with butter. then the individual cups in the pan where the rolls are baked in are filled with butter and the dough. then, after baking, the rolls have a generous ammount of buttery butter applied.......for flavor. then a protective coat of butter is poured on so the rolls don't burn under the heated lamps.

    the fish is pretty good too.

    pork at Luby's?

    alan, what do you recommend? i think the only pork product they have is bacon but it's only a side order. i put soooo much ketchup on my fish......the bacon and ketchup might taste weird.

    dan, the video will be out shortly......to the surprise of many, it will be a triple X video. it will be available at the local adult video store (LAVS).

    BA?!?!?! the old ladies are good? you got a thing for old ladies?

    Chief, did you have much housing left over? save it. after about 3 weeks of riding make sure to inspect the ends of the housing where they fit into the ferruls and make sure the inner metal sleeve hasn't frayed (this goes for all cable systems). usually this isn't a problem but can happen if the housing wasn't cut with a dedicated housing snip. if you see a few strands of metal housing poking out of the end you can trim this with a pair of regular snips. you should be good to go from there on out until the next cable AND housing change.

    as a side note to all, make sure that anytime you change cables you also change the housing. the inner plastic sheath could be worn and there'd be no way of knowing it. there could also be inner housing damage as a result of a crash. if the housing is new (less than 7-10 months) disregard this lsat bit.

    Is that another term for "roommate"?
    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, donít bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.
