Giving a whole new literal meaning to that saying!
And then after a muddy race, the adventure racers will be in high spirits and partying in the giant adjoined room! Good times!
(But seriously: keep the wheels on that thing)
The wheels stayed on! ‘Bent heard about a rider with the same problem this year. He kept trying to adjust his gears until the rider behind him noticed the thru axle starting to stick out to the side.
I was surprised how many 1x12s we saw this year, and how many Pivots too. No longer something newfangled.
Yes, I was just one of a crowd this year! To be clear, the 1X12 was not part of the problem. It was the thru axle loosening vs. my old school skewers that never loosened if they were put on correctly. I'm told this happens sometimes so I check on them regularly now.
