Yeah, I hate to do a cancel with less than 12 hours before the ride starts. And yes, I realize that I cancelled last year’s ride. And yes, the weather is supposed to suck tomorrow. But that’s not the primary reason for the cancel.
Basically, it’s mechanical. The front brakes on the Bantam are having issues, and it’s not anything I can have fixed by 8 am tomorrow. (There’s also other issues going on with the front wheel.) Tomorrow is supposed to feature lots of rain and some good descents, nothing I really want to risk with my brakes being the shape they are.
And my backup bike, the Crested Butte, also is having front brake issues. So I don’t have a bike that would be suitable for tomorrow’s ride.
So I apologize. I would like to do this ride at some point this winter, so stay tuned for a reschedule.
