    RS Monarch RT3, 200 x 57mm, with a medium tune and high volumn can. It's replacing a fox RL 200 x 50mm shock. I just put it on last night and was only able to ride up and down the street, but I can tell that it feels much smoother then the Fox. It seems to be built well and at full bottom I still have about 10mm of space between the rear tire and seat tube. So now the rear has about 142mm of travel, instead of the stock 125mm of travel. And I'm running a new RS Revelation RLT Dual Air @ 150mm of travel. The Nickel now weighs just a tiny bit under 27 pounds. I'm happy with that as this is a pretty heavy and stout frame. My biggest concern is the shocks mid stroke support. But, if it doesn't have it, I can always get it tuned. I'll see soon, this setup should be fun!

    Disclaimer: the second pic has the fox shock on it.

    Park Tool MLP-1 and CC 3.2. Hopefully I won't need either for awhile!
    LBS was out of the MLP-1, and sold me one they'd used in the shop for a reduced price.
    Oh, and a pair of rear derailleur pulleys, since one of mine broke somehow.

    Endura Hummvee Baggy Shorts w/Liner on sale at my LBS for 25% off.

    I bought a pair of these shorts at ABQ's Kickstand bike shop during their 25% off Black Friday Sale. I've gotten 2 rides in so far, and all I can say is DAMN! These are some awesome baggies with a detachable liner. On thing I must have in my baggies is LOTS of secure zipper pocket storage - and these short have PLENTY. The pockets are big and I can securely stash my iPhone, keys, camera, ID and medical insurance card in the pockets. Love 'em!

    From the $99 competitive cyclist deal. They got here yesterday. Frames are brighter blue than anticipated, but they're riding classes so who cares.

    I installed some Jagwire cables, Shimano shifter/brake controls, ergo grips and a new stem to the back up bike. I really like the new geometry after a quick ride on the hill behind the house.

    New roof rack is on the way . . .
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Nice car!

    Bought a new frame, Surly Ogre, to replace my Salsa Vaya frame. Parts are all leftovers from either the Salsa or previous mountain bikes. Got a couple more items on the way to complete the build (including a Salsa Bend 2 bar... riser is not staying)

    Looks good LostBoyScout, but you should level out your racks...

    They haven't been fine tuned yet but I do like them to angle slightly into the bike, better for cargo on the tops. probably half the angle as shown
