    I had the back plate custom welded on so it would hit the stud in a more spread fashion. The retail products I saw - I would have to drill the holes left and right of the hitch tube - missing the stud.

    The retail ones had sloppy welds and wouldnít allow me to place holes where I wanted - But to each his own.....

    If youíre happy with that go for it. Post a pic !!

    It was time to move on from the XCT fork, like thousands of others have done, nothing new. Will try it out next week after LBS puts it on. Got the Raidon for $200 with the upgrade program. While I'm sure I'll like 120mm for the light/moderate trails I do, it is a bit of false advertising to claim it's 80-100-120 mm when you can't adjust that externally. There are a lot of other air forks that are adjustable internally and don't say 80-120/140mm adjustable in the description. Oh well, I'll just keep it 120mm and maybe lock it out up hills and on pavement.

    Bought a late Christmas present for myself. A full Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain upgrade to replace the current worn out 1 x 10-speed drivetrain.

    Also, a new saddle, again. I think this is the sixth or seventh saddle I have tried, just how picky one's butt can be... :skep:

    Lol, true, I assumed some common sense was involved. BTW itís a great idea with just a few tweaks needed.

    It's not a "not a dropper seat", it's a "not a dropper saddle". :p

    In the mailbox when I got back from a quick ride yesterday: Wolftooth now has an adapter for mounting their ReMote to Magura brakes.
    Attachment 1178467

    The Magura clamps lack the vertical adjustment built into the SRAM Matchmaker setup, but the ReMote has some horizontal adjustment built in, and falls right under my thumb when moved inboard
    Attachment 1178468

    Wolftooth's adapter integrates perfectly, and is smoother and better looking than Magura's own "Shiftmix" one.
    Attachment 1178469

    As with Matchmaker, these adapters do a nice job of cleaning up the bars.

    Before swapping to homebrew I used to buy Vittoria sealant, Geax at the time.
    Good product.
