    @rachelr1116- Wow yes glad nothing worse!!
    Make sure you have or someone has put them on right. Right and Left hand thread so the rotation forward always keeps them tight.

    Good riding puglift456!!

    Gosh jlklem I only wish for those speeds

    Keep in mind the rides include interval training, mtb race pace laps, and a lot of stuff related to building to a peak for mountain bike racing (I'm in week 7 of a 12 week structured training plan for racing which was preceded by a 12 week base training plan for mountain bike racing). Some of that is on the road bike, some is on the dirt bike. 4 hour mountain bike race coming up this weekend as well...

    So much better (mine is about 20 miles ) plus cars don't give you endorphin highs to make the day better ;)
