    Nice setup. I tried a 60mm stem and a 725mm bar on my Cobia.

    Thanks guys. Just took her out for a ride and it really mutes the trails and seems to make everything smoother/slower if that makes sense. 1 second off on one downhill section and that's with me slipping in a few spots and the fork not being tight enough. Didnt notice it until after the ride!

    RaceFace Turbine 31.8 3/4rise @ 680mm should be perfect for me :-)

    A 680mm bar is somewhat narrow.
    Try the 720mm Turbine bar.

    It's actually 725. I've got one. Really nice bar, and relatively low weight. I wish it came in wider sizes.

    Oh yes, that is right.
    I was confusing the 725 riser with the 720 flat.

    Why do you have to harsh his buzz? Nobody's telling you what width bar you should enjoy.

    New to me GT i-Drive 5 frame.


    I was on the fence about how the white cable housings would look but I like how it turned out, white brake hoses are next on the list but will probably have to wait till summer for those. Now I want white grips but I don't know if I want to deal with the visible dirt they will show.

    I picked up a set of white grips in November/December last year and they get dirty just from my gloves within minuets. Not sure if this is the best thing to do to clean them but it works great is I take an old rag and spray it with some kitchen counter spray with bleach and rub it on the grips, when they look clean I take another rag with just water and then I dry them off. White grips do look nice but they do get dirty fast.

    I got my first full suspension frame on Friday from my friend.



    I'm happy with how the white cable housings look with the light blue frame but didn't realize the LBS shorted me one housing till 8:30pm the night before the ride I had planned the next day. White brake hoses and maybe white grips are next but I will probably have to wait till next month to get those.

    Scored this at Target on their clearance rack. Been needing a new one but not wanting to spend the $50-60 I have seen them for.

    pardon the newbness, but ive been thinking about going all red for my cables.. is it a tricky process? would u say someone with some ability can do it or is that a bike shop project? and what does a color change cost more or less?

    Smile MOAR carbon!

    I bent my stock handlebars, have bent a couple others as well, so I decided to give the RaceFace Carbon SIXC bars a shot.

    Finally, my last bike bit arrived. Shimano XT crankset. I now consider my bike 100% done! So... What do I do now with my life?

    Dont mind the red frame bag.

    I had never done cables or housings before and it ended up being pretty easy. Just do them one at a time and use the old housings as a guide for how long to make the new ones. As far as cost it will probably be a little more than basic black housings but you will end up with a better quality product. I used XTR teflon coated cables and the LBS gave me some lined SRAM housings since I was pressed for time. Your best bet is to get the complete kit from Jagwire, they also make colored brake hose kits. I highly recommend having a nice pair of dikes (Nipex or similar hi end brand) or the actual Park cable/housing cutting tool otherwise you may have a hard time cutting the housing and cables to length. Now that I have done it once I could probably do another bike in about 10-15 min tops.

    Thanks for posting this. Just dashed over to the library and checked out the Racing Weight Quick Start Guide and Racing Weight Cookbook; the Racing Weight book is on hold with two people ahead of me.

    Needed a new helmet.
    This one fits great and the back strap doesn't dig into the back of my head.
    So far it feels great after one ride.
    Vents well and is comfortable.
