    I hurt it an hour into the first day's ride. And Im really starting to hate this cam :p I just cant get anything too perfect with it, I can only take pics just to capture what happened, nothing artistic about them. Thanks though.

    Ah yeah, Will Ernst from Austin had an AWESOME Canon digital SLR out there and should turn out some nice pics later on from the second day's ride. Be sure to check those out. :sonic:

    The aluminum disc protecting Kelly's rear chainrings is only 3-4mm wide, definitely no more than 5mm. He machined it himself.

    Ya missed out Kamil, go down next weekend and ride with Patrick, that'll be awesome.
