Quite night, a little rain fell.
Today I had a 3 hour drive to Minneapolis to Shockspital for fork service. Appointment was 11:00AM. Using the GPS route I arrived just a few minutes early. I wheeled my bike in to the waiting tech. Short story is the oil leak is from the guts that he can’t fix. He did replace the oil w/ correct amount which is less than what was in it. As a result my fork sits higher w/ more travel. My hope is that I can get the PUSHed internal sent to a bike shop that can do the plug and play replacement.
I used the service time to hunt for a replacement Continental trail king ll black Chili. Riders here don’t have the need for that tire. QBP is out of stock. I called Dave in Sedona @ Fat Tire to verify the correct tire. My rear tire needs to be replaced. Tomorrow I will order a pair of maxiis Ardent 2.4s to be sent to Dakota bike in Medora, ND.
I continued driving to Cuyuna Lakes area. Glad to be out of intense city traffic. Drove all the way to Crosby, MN. I tried several local shops for my tire. No such luck, one said They can order it. Not from QBP.
Nice city park right on a lake one of the 10,000 lakes of which the state is known for. I parked almost against a baseball field. I joined a group of Canadians to sit and watch the game. Some good softball baseball except for the ping of the ball hitting an aluminum bat.
Amazing drought and or high temp damage to corn crop is very localized. Separated by just a few miles one corn field was killed and the next one appeared to be healthy.
