Default 2015 Spring Northern tech day

Anyone doing one or want to help me host one? I am in Longmont and once the snow melts, will have room for 1-3 bikes depending on cozy we want to be. I have a decent set of basic tools, but we all do our maintenance with our stock tool kits, right

I'm nearly always available for helping out a Tech day. I love 'em, so its rare for me to miss one. With a weeks notice, I'm usually available.

Cool Kawi!
As for the doo, I do not have the special tools and did mine years ago, so I am not the sharpest tool in the shed for that one, but I am sure someone will show up with both the knowledge and tools. I am also not sure if the Gen 2 bikes need the doo's done.

Talking Re: 2015 Spring Northern tech day

I have Doo tools, but I feign the knowledge! Well, that's what some say. The Gen II's are 'better late than never' pertaining to the Doo, IMHO.
But I have seen several that were completely out of tension in as little as 3000 miles. Soooo..............
But no problem, I've done a few.

Cool, count me in! Although I don't even have the bike yet and it only has 155 miles. Too soon for the doo? Should I wait for a Fall tech day? Either way, I'd be willing to at least come and help out if I can make it.

Heya irishelvis, I live in central FoCo (across from campus). I have a 2012 I'd like to Doohicky-ize as well. If you host I'd come. Perhaps even a small get together some time soon?

Ha! Sorry, didn't see this until now. Before I can come over do this, I need to actually order the part. I'll make sure to do that this week!

Keep me posted. I'm in Wellington, CO, and I have an Eagle Mike flywheel wrench to help the doohickificators. Plus I can help anyone do a tire change, valve check, or thermobob.

I don't want to step on your tech day, believe me. However, I need to start planning my own Spring tech day in May.

Have you guys set a date yet?

The weekend of April 10th or April 17th would work pretty well for me. Come May, I want to finally make it down to Sgt. Marty's. Something has always come up. I have a bag with a bunch of 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm sockets I picked up at a pawn shop for him, since those tend to disappear at his tech days. I was going to bring them in September, but I ended up unable to make it.

Cool, guys. I'll pick a date for my own thing soon. If I can come up to your date, I will... if only to watch Kawioops do his thang.

Again, I don't want to adversely impact your tech day, but I've set my Tech Day date for May 2nd.

I'm sure people will come to both.
