Newton's Revenge 2011

Locktite is Pamela's new best friend!

Newton had his revenge. 40-50 mph winds and no visibility on top.

John had a great ride, finishing seventh on his Seven. Maybe we should get him a Three!

Pamela rode the Pixie Fixie, but has now learned her lesson about making sure everything is tight. About halfway up, the three piece crank came apart. It has a lockring to hold the spider onto the arm. That lockring came loose and suddenly no drive! Pamela walked to the next aid station about 4/10 km away. There the volunteer ham radio folks on motorcycles were able to get the lockring rethreaded and hammered on tight using a couple of screwdrivers! The repair held, and Pamela eventually made it to the top, although not as fast as she had hoped.
