    I don't have any photos yet but I ordered a custom set of 29er wheels for my mountain bike. I'm gonna put my Hope Pro 4 wheelset up for sale and stick with this new set because they are wider and can take more punishment.

    Here is the link: https://www.speedgearbike.com/439078...?catid=1193842

    Despite how hard they are to install, I am also considering a set of Cush Core inserts too. I'm not sold on the idea just yet and I want to see where my riding adventures take me before I buy a set.

    Answer 3" protaper 810 riser handlebars.. honestly not sure if I'm keeping them on this bike.. needed to raise bars up due to back strain with the 19~mm riser bars I had before..

    Paid a princely $25~ for these..so meh.. figured I'd give them a shot. (also don't tell my wife I put my bike in her flowers =p)

    Recent purchases include these green ODI green grip clamps. My family and friends think I tend to choose too many dark colours for ... everything! So ... green clamps! :-) Also have new rotors coming in green! Living on the edge, I tell ya!

    Oh and then yesterday I picked up some light elbow and knee pads at 30% off. I wasn't going to post them, but somehow my buddy managed to get this shot after a rock roll on Fromme.

    Lefty hub, WTB Rim & Tire, wheel build, valve stem.
    Finally.
    (Easiest tubeless setup I've ever made. Tire slid right on, a little sealant, a gorilla tape jerry rigged pump and done. I think it took less time than a tubed tire. Kinda freaking me out.)

    What goes better on a '90's RAThopper gravel grinder than a classic 90's saddle. The time-honored Selle Italia Flite! (for $30)

    I bought tire condoms. I also have a custom set of wider wheels inbound hopefully by next weekend. My wheels will be 29ers with Stan's Flow 29mm ID rims and Bitex hubs. I bought them from Wayne at https://www.speedgearbike.com/

    I got my big order of clothing from Artís Cyclery! Additionally, I bought a Hero 4 Black via Amazon to use with my gimbal rather than grabbing a Hero 7 Black. I learned the hard way that my Hero 5 doesnít play well with gimbals.

    Two hose clamps and a piece of tube (one around the bar over a piece of tube and another one looped through that around the flashlight). It sounds stupid but it works awesome!

    Makes me glad I found video editing to be way too time consuming, and my footage way too boring to be worth putting the effort into. More money for bike maintenance vs. GoPro/gimbal/memory/computer upgrades/Adobe subscriptions =)

    Ditto! I take pics with my phone or camera if its a worthy trip.

    But coming home, downloading, editing etc, is not my cup of tea.

    Battery will produce some great videos. Like this one:

    I am a video editor enthusiast and I like to start video projects with my Final Cut Pro software. I might try my hand and set cameras down some of my local trails and record some runs by the locals.

    I'm actually influenced by LukeMTB on YouTube. He is a local rider, video editor, and I believe he posts here on MTBR too. That's how I found his YouTube! Here is one of his awesome videos. I want to learn and create content like this:

    I used to to run the GoPro and download and skip the editing. Post up raw footage. I like the sounds of the ride over any editing. The viewer actually is along for the ride with all their senses. Nothing against editing but for me raw footage is wayyyyy better to view in my opinion.

    Agree! Mine are raw, but in reality my rides are not that exciting, lol except when I travel, like Sedona for example. So I gave up on the gopro thing!

    I usually record with Protune so I can manually set my colors, lighting, and shadows in Final Cut Pro. I donít like to add music or alter too much. In a sense, I want to record like Nate Hills does for his #followcamfriday series.

    Looking forward to seeing some of the footage. I didn't grab the deal on the GP 5 that I was offered. I may start with a low end model to see if its something I would use.

    Get a used Hero 4 instead of the 5. You can do the dead cat mod on the top microphone or buy a Windslayer. Hero 4 has a way better microphone. I have a video on my YT that used a Hero 5 with a gimbal and it didnít turn out well. I will PM you a link to my YT channel

    Lol! Well if you want to dabble into action recording to see if you like it, definitely buy his used camera. I also recommend a Stuntman chest harness. You can grab those from Amazon.

    MOAR PARTS!

    Avid speed dial 7 brake levers and a compressionless housing and cable kit (I swapped out the tektro brakes to bb7's about a year ago but didn't bother with the levers at that time) and a Lezyne Strip Drive rear light.

    Post a PIC of your latest purchase [bike related only]-parts.jpg

    I made a siezure inducing and poorly made video of the light. The Cylon mode is my favorite!

    Ah! Shimano bleeding kit. I donít know why I waited so long to switch to hydraulic brakes. They require more maintenance but hey itís part of the fun and the performance is rewarding.

    I just bought these... haven't received them yet but hoping they fix my new wrist issue... I've been mtbing for over 15 years with no issues. Recently started riding a downhill park on a new bike with much wider handlebars and the pain is awful. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
    thanks!

    Uggh! I wish this was back in Passion.

    Found these at Jenson's super cheap so grabbed a pair, my 510s are still good but now I have a back up.

    Arundel bottle cage. Not happy with the Lezyne cages I got. Lesson, don't change what you know works.

    Oh well. It was me. I just learned how to bleed brakes and how to overhaul a hydraulic caliper, things I never worry with my old bb7 brakes. I said it somewhere and it still floating around.

    I got a pair from him, except the rims are Sentrys. It was one of the last items he had on eBay before he dropped off of there. Only one ride so far.

    I loved the fact that he packed them into 1 wheel box instead of 2 like my Hope wheels were shipped. Wayne did an awesome job tubeless taping the rim and then he wrapped the rim in plastic to prevent any scrapes or accidental damage to the rim or the tape. The rims have zero scratches on them after the build!

    The spokes are really tight too! I checked all of the spokes just to make sure one wasn't super loose. I also like the Bitex hubs. The rear hub has a nice sound to them. I would say that the Bitex hub is one level down from the Pro 4 regarding hub noise.

    Also, Wayne gave me some Halloween candy!

    Lol @TOR! Not yet, they did arrive with 2 pairs of laces, one is green.

    I'm fighting the flu for 3 days now, so no rides this week.

    @Battery. Sweet! No pun!

    To get over your sickness faster, just ride a professional enduro race trail at maximum speed. You will forget that your're sick within the first few minutes.

    Bleeding is only done if you get air in the lines. Which happens if you have a wheel off and squeeze the lever, you learn pretty quick not to do that. Overhaul a caliper, never heard of anyone needing to do that. Basically changing out pads is really the only maintenance in a closed system, hydraulic disc brakes. If you are ever low on fluid itís because you have a leak or you ride downhill forever consistently. Basically hydro brakes are pretty much maintenance free.

    You have to bleed lines when you cut the hoses which are ridiculously long in most cases. By overhauling the caliper I meant to clean and lube your poisons. You need to do this if you see only one piston coming out when pulling the lever. After a long period of use one of the pistons will get stuck because on the dust.

    If you're careful and do it right, you don't have to bleed Shimanos when you cut the line. My SLXes have never been bled.

    Well, no a full bleed but only to take the bubble out of the master cylinder.
