    I guess I should pay a trip to my LBS to see if we have any Carbon's in town yet.
    So far we have about 12cm of snow here since last night. Sucks.
    We had over 40 cm since friday night... Back to the snowboard.

    I ordered I9s for my F29 right around the first of February, It looks like I will have them in a week or two.

    I have been thinking about H-Bars for my SS bike. A cheaper option is the Jeff Jones designed Titec Jones H-Bars. There are slight differences (have riser mid section) and are aluminum, but are only $70.

    if your SS has a rigid fork - Jones bars all the way. they will make a huge difference. if you have front suspension the Jones bars will make a difference but perhaps not worth the extra $$$ over the titec. FWIW i love my jones bars. they are one of those things if you try them you wont want to go back .....

    I'm on my power stroke. This is the beginning of the race so I'm hammering to get up to speed. I'm not bottoming out the fork during the rides either. My boot is all screwed up (I think the fork was leaned up against something or something laid on the boot a long time before I got it.) It looks less strange now that I've rotated it back to normal where it had a little twist in the photo.

    Cool, I was just making sure that you weren't bottoming out the lefty during pedal strokes. Not to get off topic, but did you get the Carbon Lefty/XMax's?

    29er Commuter

    Bought this 29er last week to be my work commuter.
    The paint is lame, but it rides great and looks wicked cool with the skinny tires

    Good job!

    I guess I'll post up a couple pictures of my non lefty 29er 4. Only upgrades have been the big ring protector and the Crank Bros Mallet 1 pedals. Just starting out in the MTB world but I'm really enjoying this bike so far. I also switched my brakes moto style since I ride motorcycles, seems more natural to me.

    some minutes ago came back, first 50 km done , a known round robin...

    unfortunately, my Edge was empty of power..so i cannot check speed , tomorrow i am doing again ...

    however , the 36T is very OK but you must pedal at higher cadence than other gear on 26" ..and for my body is not usual ...

    21T is very good on the little hills found this morning

    i installed M751 top pull down swing XT Shimano 2003 model front derailleur but for the small difference from 36 and 42T i was not able to have the 42T on .

    so i use 29er as a double 36-21 and the 42 as bash guard .... no issues on chain

    weight this morning was 9820 with 4Ti pedals , XT front der....ready to roll

    i planned to :

    lower 280 g with the AX Lightness seatpost ( 120 instead 400 g of this Cannondale C4 )

    lower 70-80 g with foam grips instead of 100g Sram ones

    grow 100 g with SL pedals instead 4Ti

    lower 20-30-40 g with a carbon bashguard instead 42T ring 56g

    so final weight will be around 9500-9600 g

    i used hoses for gear cables what i have at home , not light parts...maybe 40-50 g to loose with I-link Alligator hoses

    eli, you going to go to a stan's 355 based wheelset? I'm sure you know that that will save a few grams...

    I've been wanting to do that race for several years now. I always have something else I have to do instead (friend's wedding last year, anniversary w/ the wife this year).

    They are very light, but also pricey. Especially now that I9 offer the Ultralite Race wheelset.

    Makes the 470g Arch rims on my 29er seem like boat anchors!

    sub 1400g for a 29er wheelset is pretty fantastic. although wouldnt the longer spokes (but same guage as a 26er) mean that its probably weaker than the 26er? stan doesnt build them up with 3x either right?

    im not an engineer or a wheelbuilder so apologies if this is dumb question...

    Here's my 2009 29'er 2. I picked up this spring on sale and am really liking it. I was coming off of a 1995 M800 Beast, so it was time for an upgrade. I had always wanted a Lefty and I wanted one of the Made-in-the-USA frames before they go away.

    I've made a few changes as I've found deals and others just to suit the kind of trails I ride.

    My last ride was especially muddy, so I had her cleaned up for today's ride so I shot a couple pics.

    ----------------

    Frame: 2009 29er 2, Large
    Fork: stock - Lefty DLR
    Handlebar: Ritchey WCS Carbon Flat - 31.8 x 580
    Grips: Ritchey WCS Ergo foam
    Brakes: stock - Avid Juicy 3 180/165 mm
    Shifters: SRAM X-7 (no indicator)
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT M771
    Rear Derailleur: 2010 SRAM X.9 Medium cage
    Cassette: SRAM PG-980 11-34
    Chain: stock Shimano HG-53
    Cranks: stock Shimano M521
    Pedals: Ritchey V4 SE (red from Nashbar)
    Rims: stock - Jalco X320
    Hubs: stock Shimano M475 rear
    Tires: stock Conti Race King 29x 2.2
    Saddle: stock Cannondale CO2
    Seatpost: Ritchey WCS Carbon 1-bolt, 31.6x350

    ----------------
