MS 150 Ride is June 6-8

6 posts in this topic

I'm participating in the MS150 ride this year for the first time. Is anyone else gonna be there?

I been trying to find new ways to be active and the charity kick has been strong this year. Some friends from my fire dept are on a team so I'm riding with them.

I can't post a link, but if anyone would be interested in sponsoring my by donating to the MS society I would appreciate it. My email is epfd217@gmail.com

I can send you the online link to donate to me.

I hope to see an FM'r or two on the way.

Good for you, I sponsor a guy that I use to work with. He has been retired for about 10 years and has been doing the ride since he retired. Good luck to you and your friends.

Powerstroke,

Thanks for riding! My 17 year old daughter and my mother-in-law both have MS, so we really appreciate everyone who takes part in events like these. Could you post your team name so we could donate on the Minnesota MS Society HSOforum?

Our place was a stop on the TRAM when it went through southern Minnesota many years ago when my in-laws were still living here on the home place. It is a cool thing to watch.

Thanks again for riding!

Carolyn

Thank you so much fishing tech and Carolyn for your support. I'm sorry to hear about your daughter and your Mother-in-law. My best friend's mom has MS and I know a couple other people that do too and its a very tough condition. I hope they are feeling well.

I did a nice 20 mile ride yesterday and I'm planning a 40+ mile ride for friday evening or saturday morning.

You can find me by name or by our team. My name is Andrew Hamilton and our team name is I-C Butts for the Larkin MS150 ride June 6-8.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
