Sunday afternoon Paul and I rode in Granite Basin. It was a perfect day for mountain biking, temperatures were in the 60’s, the sky was partly cloudy, and there was a light breeze.
We made 3 loops using almost all the trails that are actually in the basin. On the trails we saw a few other mountain bikers, on girl on horseback, and a few hikers.
My rear derailleur is having a problem. When I am really putting it to the pedals on an uphill, the chain jumps back and forth between second and third gear. The LBS says it is because the pivots are worn out and there is too much play in them. This really sucks, because that means that I will have to buy a new one.
