Larrys always right!

ya cant ride today & its prolly too crappy for workin' on trails......sure, you can sit at home and put that new fork or brakeset on.....maybe adjust your saddle....change grips....

....but you've probably already done that over the last 5 months of *$#@!&~ cabin fever!!

So join today or make sure you renew! .....and please tell a riding buddy to do the same!  It costs about as much as those 5 crafty-brews you had last night.

Folks - It benefits mountain biking in Chicagoland THE TRAILS YOU & I RIDE, it benefits mountain biking everywhere, it gets our voice heard by the man, plus you do get some serious discounts as well with CAMBR/IMBA membership!!    and now a raffle??!!

Figured it out. The piston , if that's the right term, needed to be pushed in a little more. Then I needed to push hard enough for it to click in. It was hard to get the right leverage and angle when the caliper was still on my fork. Eventually I got it. Thanks for your help. Ready to ride again.

I swapped the fox on my dixon for a debonair monarch rct3, much better small bump, and like the pike it sits higher in it's travel, and is super plush. the all black suspension bits are bad ass as well!

i just picked up a 19" dixon carbon 2 weeks ago (colorado cyclist has them for $2500, only $2200 for the aluminum).. it's making the technical step climbs a bit harder with the microstem, but i'm getting used to it... the chunky descents are a ton easier though.

I have to take a closer look at them again tonight. I didn't have a chance to try it again since the last time I tried. The odd thing is I couldn't even fit in the original ones so it's either me (which it definitely could be) or something is messed up with the calipers.

Make sure there are plenty of work days on any day other than Saturday.

I've found that with some aftermarket pads there is often some flash or thick plating on the backing that makes these too wide to fit in the caliper. Maybe try filing the sides of the backing and see if this helps them slide in.

thanks for your response. yeah, it's weird. no crud or anything. they look like they're in but no way to fit the wheel since the pads are too close together. they pads are dialed all the way out and they retract appropriately after pressing the brakes.

it's frustrating the heck out of me since i know it shouldn't be this hard. i have BB7s on my single speed and may take off the front wheel and compare. the odd thing is i can't even get the old pads with the old spring to click in appropriately so it's obviously something i'm not doing right. it shouldn't be this hard, haha.

Are the metal backing plates on the old and new pads exactly the same size?  Other than that I have nothing.

My bottom bracket FINALLY showed up, I also have the tires, bars, and stem sitting in the parts pile. The seat has proven difficult to come by, I called up Ashton at Peddle and Spoke and he has one coming that he's going to ship to me. 

The big news is the frame is scheduled to ship out on Monday.

So close!
