Tuesday looks like it will be snow/ice free, so we’ll get our granite fix at McIntosh Run this week. The extra hour of daylight will be nice, but we’ll still need lights to finish out the ride.

Where: McIntosh Run - meet at the Alabaster cul de sac
Difficulty: Intermediate with some advanced features

Notes: Lights required

I am going to try to make this ride. I am scheduled until 7pm, however will contact someone if I can make it and when I am leaving work etc.

No worries. We’ll be sticking to the front granite loops, so we can just loop back to the cul de sac whenever you get there.

Have a fun out there. The tubeless gods are frowning on me this eve and I’m throwing in the shop towel on making it to the ride. Had a bit of a marathon getting the rear tire to seat with an insert, and the front rim tape is leakier than the Edmund Fitzgerald.


I just did an insert as well. It was a bi-ch getting the tire back on but rode it today. All good and I feel little better in the granite now.

I was in the same boat with my rear wheel but luckily I won the battle eventually. Rubbing sealant on the bead seemed to do the trick to finally get it to seal up again.

Pretty sure the old rim tape is the issue. I tried sealant on the bead, but it made no difference.

Maybe that new tire I’m holding for you would work better?

Haha, you’ve got a point there. I haven’t been on the trail bike since I tweaked my back so I totally forgot! I’ll drop you a DM to setup a time to grab it.
