Fun riding with you guys yesterday. That section we set up in the creek was tricky, never did get that turn up the hill dialed in. Maybe a new tire will help but I don't think that was my problem....

Copper in 2 weeks!

I too had a blast riding out there, it's nice that we have a few different areas to help us along with gaining those skills needed to advance, and Mark it's good to see you tackling obstacles that normally I wouldn't try, good riding.

Luke, those tight turns on elevation with loose ground are such great practice, something I think we can all work on.

After you guys left I went up to the crevice and rode couple different lines. Glad we cleared that area out, definitely good place to practice.

Probably see you guys Sunday at Copper

Luke, how would you repair this part of the steel frame? Taking it to my buddy at Tesla Thursday but curious what you would do?

Lower shock bolt came loose

Believe it or not the main damage is outside of the area where the load is so it isn't a huge issue. I'd either weld fill the gash about 1/8" to 3/16" from the edge of the hole to build up the material or add a scab plate to the gash side of the existing plate and weld along the edge. The hole is 90% as strong as it was and most of the load on that dog bone is going away from the gash not pulling the bolt into it.

What a relief. I was so pissed when I saw that since I’m pretty good at watching for those issues. Even put paint across bolts after I torque them but just failed to look under there.

My buddy was thinking same thing about welding in a shim. Thanks for the input Luke!
