    New in Town

    Just moved here recently from Florida and got into riding. I raced in the beginner class at the mud fest at Chickasaw Trace last weekend and my bike seriously needs a tune up. The only bike shops i know of is REI and Franklin Bike Co, but i stopped by Franklin and it looks like they closed down. REI says they are 10 days out and i cant be without my bike for 10 days. Does anyone have a bike shop that isnt so backed up right now. I live in Spring Hill, but i dont mind driving to get it done sooner then later. Thanks

    I heard the Chickasaw race was a muddy mess! I guess I'm glad I didn't race it now.

    Hey man...glad you posted up on here. Like I told you when we were at L4 ...the guys at Biker's Choice are great (822-2512) but they are in Hendersonville so it is a haul for you. Are you trying to get the tune up before heading to Cotton Mill for a pre-ride next Saturday or just before the race on the 18th?

    Trying to get it done before the pre-ride next week. Both my front and back discs are rubbing, my back break control is loose so you have to really clamp down to break and my front derailer is shifting funny. I posted it under the bike shop thread to and got a bunch of hits. There is a guy close to me that is a bike tech that is going to take a look at it tomorrow. Should be good to go after tomorrow. Thanks bro.

    I did wind up taking the drive to MOAB. Great crew working there and they were able to get my bike ready for me in time. Thanks for the tip.
