    Swapped out the horrendously slow 2.35 Nevegals for some 2.2 Trail Kings.

    Riding today, we'll see how they do.

    Put a replacement rear shock on it (used Fox Float RC). Setting it up as we speak. Last week, replace the tired Panaracer tires with Kenda Negval (front) and small block 8 (rear).

    Used Salsa Red Titanium skewers front and back:





    Used Hope seat post clamp:



    Used Bontrager lock on grips/ red trim:



    Sette 90mm stem, hoping to change to a Thompson, Race Face, or something similar. Bike was purchased used, and everything that has gone on the bike is used, so it is starting to be trend with me. Cool ride on a budget.

    I installed my new RS Sid World Cup fork and new Avid XO brakes on my XC Team and new Sram Stylo OCT Crankset as well. I'll post pics sometime soon. Does anyone else have a XC Team? I see a lot of posts for trail bikes but not many for the xc race bikes.

    Dusted it off, cleaned/lubed/aired and tweaked. Haven't had much time to ride due to workload (good!) and weather (bad!). Worked 65 hours last week and looking at 75 this coming week, but vacation afterward. Time to ride and fish.

    Took my KHS sixfifty606 and upgraded to:

    Avid Elixir 5
    (have much better feel than the Hayes that were on it)

    Truvativ BooBar 780mm Wide Bar
    (I am a "big o' boy" so the 780mm feels just right)

    Lizard Skin Clamp-on Grips
    (so they don't move under my "Big o' boy" weight)

    185mm Wave Disc
    (Up front to stop my "Big o' boy" weight)
    Fat-n00b

    KHS sixfifty606
    Felt F90

    Current Condition:
    6' 2" @ 288 lbs.
