    You'll have to purchase some 4mm cable housing and about 15 minutes of your time. But its worth it IMO. Cheers! Lookin' good!
    I noticed you're running a Cane Creek headset, has yours started to creak yet? Me and Tmoney are both running that headset, and have had nothing but creaks from them, the bearings actually move around inside the headcup, we took Tmoney's apart and discovered there was a pretty good amount of play between the bearings and the cup. Tmoney opted for an FSA after our discovery of this. Just wondering if we got a couple of jank headsets or if all of them potentially creak at some point.

    cane creaking?

    No creaking yet but thanks for the warning. I actually just replaced the lower cup with a Flush version to steepen the front a tad (running the 66sl at 170mm). Feels pretty solid. However, let me ask you this: Any creaking from yer pivots? I've had the 6.6 for a couple months now and am developing a nice creak when pedalling hard. I guess if its not one thing, it another! Ah the joy! But overall, what a ride!

    no creaking here.. I took off my shock and cycled thru the travel and everything seemed fine.

    I do get a clicking on my Z1 light though.. when I compress, and release, and when the shock is from about 1inch from full extension, there's a small 'click'.. from the left side (eta side).
    What is this?

    You know I have not ANY creaking yet from the pivots, but I do try avoid mud holes if possible. I also just reinstalled all my pivot bolts since I just sent them off to ano a month or so ago, but no creaking . I do get a little cable slap on the seatube from routing the cables under the toptube and over the upper link.

    Thanks. The I9s are definitely living up to the hype. Silky smooth, very light and incredibly stiff. Not to mention the freewheel's buzz. Definitely giving King hubs a run for the money in the noise department.

    I'm going to guess and say yeah. It came off my old Nicolai Nucleon which was owned previously by Dave Weagle…so it would make sense that it was E13.

    Sure did. Nucleon ST. Here she is:



    Though after thinking about it, the ST had a 1 1/8 headtube. The reducers came off my Nicolai UFO, which doesn't help much as I still don't recall who made them.

    I don't know where you got that.

    On the contrary, take a look at these:
