Soooooo............. the weekend trip to Whistler was a bit of a bust. Full on torrential rains the first two days that really didn't subside often. Monday was great and then disaster struck. The local bike shop said they'd never seen it before. The entire red sleeve on the Avid Elixer brakes just gave out and failed, full on warranty failure............. right after the first run of the day. Boooooooooo. Not happy at all. Whatever, Saint may be the way to go, I'm tired of shit going wrong. A long weekend with not much riding - ce la vie.
