    My 2011 XXL Trek/Fisher Rig

    Well I've had my bike out twice now, despite freezing temperatures and plenty of snow on the ground. Swapped a few parts off too, so I figured I should start a thread.

    Took off the awful stock bar, replaced it with a Cobalt 3 "flat" bar. I really like the shape. The color is strange, it's nice in some lights (and almost matches the frame's dark green), but in other lights it's downright funky and doesn't seem like it would match with anything at all. I have an Easton EC90Wide on backorder, we'll see if I like that one more.

    Replace the brakes, got the Special Edition Tech M4's.

    Tires are on order. Maxxis Ikons, will run tubeless.

    So far so good, I love the bike. Haven't done anything technical, but the bike seems to fit me perfectly.

    Now the question is, who wants to buy my 26" HiFi Deluxe? I don't think I'll be going back to 26" scooter wheels anytime soon...

    Nice bike, glad some brands are making XXL's for us tall guys.
    You may want to post in the SS forum as well to get feedback.

    Wheels built, new tires on running tubeless. Actual tire width is around 2.15in at "higher than riding" PSI.

    Also, went to a Surly 20T cog for my upcoming mountain trip, and a PC890 chain.
