    Trek you should have a look at lightforce lights. Not sure if a dyna hub would power them but it would be badass. We use them on our rigs here for moose but for your yard it would really light things up. Probably a good idea to the get the HID version. The 9" model should be gtg. Hell while you are at it why not get a rohlhoff for that and make it an ebike. That would certainly make everyone think you are cool.
    Hopefully the HED rims work out for you always a good idea to save weight. It should balance out the weight of the studs on the dillenger tires you will be telling us you are ordering soon because you got an awesome deal and you are such bros that Amazon prime just air drops stuff to your house because you are such a good customer.
    If you haven't caught my drift you are awesome. Your stack of bike pics are awesome. My fav is the vehicle with a bike worth more posed on it. I know that it is just used for hauling the bike from the garage to the yard because it would be way to tall to get on your roof rack for you hummer h1 that you got a good deal on.

    Ever buy 5 sets of high end pedals shipped overnight to find what matches best? Oh yeah you did that and said you would keep them as spares. I think the reason to buy good stuff is you don't need spares? Who in the hell needs spares for a bike that you have said countless times won't be off road much less anywhere besides the back of your awesome little SUV!

    Ohh yeah....well ever get a high end girl completely naked, and just stare at her sitting in your bed, waiting to be ridden?

    Neither have I.

    I don't even use a rimstrip w/ my high end girls, I just let the tubeless brew do all the work. Feels good man.

    SALSA BEARGREASE Carbon Machine-1aa.jpgAmazon.com had a blowout sale yesterday on these Fox Downhill Bike Pants and thought these would rock the Plastic Fatty. These were marked down from 189.00 to 99.00 and thought i would snap up a couple pair to match the beargrease..

    Interesting, they quoted me $1015.00 shipped for the Betty R because I had an aluminum 9ZERO7. It's not a high end bike, but I think the name 9ZERO7 just really makes people like me.

    I ordered 4 because I want to be able to see my color matched fox dh shorts when I ride at night. I also got the same shorts you did for $50 from Amazon using my Prime membership...NEXT DAY SHIPPING!!.

    No one is either stupid enough to waste $13,000+ on bike stuff in a couple weeks, or is rick enough to buy all that stuff and drive an OLD Ford Escape, or even a Ford Escape.
    We all know you're a troll.

    HED carbon wheelset.

    Just finished installing the HED wheelset with red ano Salsa hubs. Did the tubeless conversion the way HED recommended with Gorilla tape and it worked. The beads fit tighter on this than any of my other wheels and they seat with a loud bang. I had my doubts about using Gorilla tape but the glue on there is very tacky. Selling my old wheelset to a friend to make a new fattie with a Bluto fork. Not the 21# weight others have shown for this but it was down to 23# 4oz with pedals and light mount. I put 4oz Stans sealant in each wheel as recommended, which was way too much so I might drain a little out. The Dillingers did not leak one drop of Stans and my bead only had a couple of dribbles in the past 24 hours. Only winter will tell if Stans works good in sub zero conditions.

    Very cool on the HED wheels. I was going to go with Carbondale rims for my Yampa build but there seems to be issues getting them so I too may be going the HED route.

    They made it easy and fast, I could send my old hubs and they would set them up or. My bike shop drop shipped the red anodized set to them and they even matched the nipple color and used some flat bladed spokes for the same price. The 9 day order was way quicker than I was expecting. After last year of everyone running out I am getting my parts early this year. I have had Dillinger studs on back order for 6mo and no one has any that I know of.

    Pick up some lightly used Nokian Extremes on Craigs List or E Bay and switch the studs over. It will likely be cheaper and you will have some extra studs just in case.

    I have some Nokian studs for spares and will only use them if I have to. They are super heavy and out weigh the 45nrth studs 10 / 1 because they are Steel / Carbide VS Aluminum / Carbide.
