No buggying this weekend - need side rail(s) XR+


Well - the LH side rail on my PL XR+ is cracked nearly all the way around. Good thing I decided to clean it! The only thing holding the rail on is the previous TIG weld repair. Anyone have a LH, or I guess a pair - of XR+ side rails? These are normal length - but I could use the extra-long if needs be.

But the Black Widow heads south for JIBE - that's too long to wait. I gotta fix or replace. Also noticed small cracks on the downtube and axle. Several years of hard riding beat this bug UP!

Your new toy should be at Jekyll 4/24 so you can get some seat time before JIBE.

Kent -

Thanks, I found some replacements.

I had emailed y'all - I'll double check, maybe it bounced - but no biggie.

Wow - these parts are getting SCARCE!

Carbon fiber - damn, that's cool.

Spencer - I'm still sort of on the IR.

No heavy lifting, no barbells, no PT yet, but don't need to wear it unless I plan to get crazy.

Probably won't need it by JIBE, but Toby and I (splinted) went out on 3/5/2017 - no issues. A little harder to land than usual - splint took out some braking - but I cut it down more.

Thanks to Ted - I now have earlier target date - motivation!

Thanks TED!
