Re: GoPro's from Sept.8 A ride

We could make it interesting by saying that anyone I drop on that ride has to buy TSC kit.

Please place your order in this Google Doc, per Ann's instructions: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

Don't do the copy-paste thing! I think I've got the most recent copy-paste orders into the Google doc.

Re: Tripleshot socks?

Looks like if we order 120 pairs, we could get the socks Stéphane found for US$6 a pair. Will update in a bit.

Re: Tripleshot socks?

How very odd. Believe it or not those socks were designed specifically for Tripleshot over a year ago. For some reason, the designer (local--at the time--kid who rode with us a couple times, I think) never followed up with me. I've written to inquire about a bulk order. Will let you know if anything...

That way first dibs will go to people who haven't yet had a chance to go. There will be 3 groups of 10 like last time. Once people have had a couple da...

Re: Carbon repair

I heard a rumour recently of someone else (a Nick?) in town doing carbon repairs. Jim Wallace might have been telling me about it?

The usual approach has been to strip parts off the frame and send to Roberts Composites in Vancouver.

Hey folks, Invitations went out last week for Thursday TTT, and will again this week. Getting the TTT right under Covid may require some experimentation.

There won't be a Thursday TTT on the roster for this week. The Exec needs to discuss whether this ride is feasible during Covid, and if so how it should be implemented.
