Yesterday I went back to Sprain Ridge and put the knobbies to the singletrack again. I got there late in the afternoon, around 1:30 and it was hot but not unbearable like it has been lately. Fortunately, a lot of the trail network at Sprain Ridge is covered by a dense canopy.
Aside from riding every trail I could, my other goal was to test my prototype Grapefruit Spoon Chain Guide. As it turns out, my "backyard rocket-science" did not prove to be completely successful. I dropped my chain about ten times during my 3 hour ride. Each time my chain dropped, was equally frustrating. I fiddled with the device and adjusted the height countless times before just giving up. I see a new purchase in the near future.
On the plus side, I did take a lot of video with my 3GS. I'm going to splice it together tomorrow night and see if I can post up a little vimeo action for ya'll. Stay tuned.
