    New pics of new parts on my Blindside
    So I have upgraded a few things on my Blindside and I thought I'd share some pics. Upgrades include: Shimano XT brakeset, Azonic Outlaw wheelset, Saint pedals, Geax rubber, and Boxxer fork. It's pretty much where I want it and have been really happy with it!!

    I love it! :D Well apart from that front derailleur, are you really using all those gears?

    The color isn't for everyone but I got an awesome deal on it because of it and I figured I might as well keep going with the blue accents. I do use the FD, I have to pedal everything I ride so it was pretty essential. It's not the most pedal friendly bike but it makes it up everything and makes me stronger on my trail bike.

    I've got an 11-36 cassette with a 36t front ring on my TR250 and I pedal everything on it as its my only bike, what cassette do you have? Ninespeed right? So 11-34? Why did you choose a DC fork if you have to pedal on it? And leave the rims like they are now, de-stickered rims look cheap :P What bar are you running BTW?

    /One last question, never heard of those Geaxes before, how are you liking them?

    Yes, it is an 11-34 cassette and I put a DC fork on it cause I do ride DH on it but I have to pedal to the top of most trails. I don't do much shuttling. I've gotten pretty used to pedaling it and I don't mind slugging along. It's actually made me quicker and stronger on my trail bike. I'm running an Easton Havoc DH bar and I do like the Geax tires. On par with Maxxis for width, a little rounder but really good grip. Mounted up tubeless really well too. A little heavy but I will probably buy them again when these wear out.

    Ah okay, thanks for your reply :) Well then I understand if you've got a trail bike as well. Thought it was your only bike. Anyhow, really sick bike! Shame they quit making the Blindside :/
