Re: 17th Annual Grand Slam West

Red Stone Inn gives a $10 discount for GSW, but I believe they are fully booked. No other hotels help us out.

BFG sidewalls don't stand up to the rocks where I wheel, that's why I like the Kevlar sides of MTRs. Not sure what tires I'll try next. (Silent Armors work well for my winter tires.)

You don't need to chop the stock lock posts, just turn them clockwise until they are at the desired height. Pliers and a cushioning rag (to prevent plier marks) help a lot.
