    N-Gear Jump Stop chain guide, since my front derailleur had a bolt spontaneously combust, and I was planning on going 1x soon, anyway.
    Cane Creek 40 headset, which may have something to do with there being a 2016 Rockshox Reba on the way.
    Waited 3yrs to make any major upgrades, and have spent well over what I had in it in the last month. It's like getting a new bike all over again, but a familiar one, and 3lb lighter

    not a purchase but a gift--unless you count the $110 i gave the shop to transfer over parts from my KHS and get her ready to go. ( i DID have to buy a new chain)it's a 2009 surly karate monkey single speed. can't wait to ride it, definitely a step up from the solo-one. i'm stoked that i can use my paul levers with the avid discs!

    my cousin's husband in colorado tore up his knee and can't ride for two years. he figured the bike might as well get ridden...

    The temps dropped a little quicker than expected, and with us both racing on Sunday, at a forecast 5 degrees & rain, l rushed out and got my daughter and myself each a pair of these



    Edit: did a test ride today, 6 degrees and dry, 2 hrs and no problems at all for me, in fact my hands were sweating. My daughter (12) lasted about an hour before her hands got cold.
    So all in all we are happy, see how they stand up in rain tomorrow (although hopefully it wont rain)

    Well Socal, the sunrace 10spd cassette is 11-40t instead of the "standard" 11-34t or 11-36t...the Sunrace has a low 40t cog for super low-gear pedalling.

    Got a hitch and Curt bike rack for the CR-V. I gotta admit I'm a little nervous about it being back there with the weight and wobbling but I know it'll be ok. Just the nerves of it I guess.

    New helmet for a case of wine. You won't get that kind of deal online. Didn't really go for the Super originally, but the MIPS version is much better fitting.

    $125NZ (that's currently $84US) each end, certainly wasn't going to pass that up.

    The new Fuel is a lot better than the Rumblefish, be sure to tell us what you think of the shorter wheelbase and slacker geometry.

    I really like my Nobby Nic 2.25 on the rear of my bike. I wish I got the EVO though. I have a Hans Dampf Trailstar up front and that has a lot stiffer of a sidewall than my Performance line NN. When I had a Hans Dampf in the rear I never got a flat, on my NNs I got 2 flats.

    Just to clarify the bike that was traded in was a Trek HiFi plus, not the Rumblefish. Very similar bikes the HiFi is 100mm and the RF 120mm.

    The Fuel EX 8 while having shorter chain stays is actually approximately 1" longer in the wheelbase.

    I believe I have it pretty close to dialed in for me and I am loving it. The bike handles incredibly well on flowy and tech DH single track. It carries momentum incredibly well. The shorter chainstay has the rear wheel under me on the climbs so traction is also improved. The only place I feel I am lacking right now is real tight switch backs. Being a little longer definitely understandable. But when they open up some it takes off.

    The suspension works great, no more reaching down to switch modes for climbs and descents. And with 20% more travel it feels great on drops and railing corners. I do need to remove one barrel from the Fox fork to get the rest of my travel but that should get it all dialed in.

    We pre-rode a course we will be racing in November and one friend commented while I was fast before I am faster now. He wasn't happy I was on his wheel the whole single track down and then smiled as I blew past him on a momentum climb. Another friend mentioned he was thinking when I started out on the tight switchbacks when I learn how to ride this bike I will be real fast but then he realized I had cleared the switches and was gone.

    Finally decided that 720mm was a little narrow for my liking. Ordered a RaceFace Carbon SiXC 785mm and I will trim as necessary after a few test rides. Decided to go ahead and get new grips since I am putting new bars on anyways. It should all be here tomorrow!

    Parts on Amazon

    Ripped my derailleur hanger bolt in half last weekend, ordered the X0. 9speed replacement for $16 on AmazonÖ then I saw the whole damn derailleur for $26, Iím thinking too good to be true. But what the hell, itís on my amazon card and Iíll refuse payment if itís a scam - I'm in no hurry, as I don't need the part ATM. There is also Shimano XT M8000 180mm double on there right now for $31, is this legit? Anyone ordered this stuff though amazon Ďjapanspecialtyshopí? Anyways, Iím not counting on getting anything but the replacement part.

    This afternoon the Brown Truck of Joy delivered a star nut setter, crank pullers, BB tools(for removing the old and installing the new), SRAM GX1400 cranks and GXP Team BB, Odi Rogue grip replacements to try in place of Ruffians, and an inexpensive 720mm bar from Ritchey to see how the width suits me.
    Already shortened the steerer tube and dropped a spacer, set a new star nut, and am digging the wider bar and chunky grips after a few rides around the yard and down the street.

    It's gonna be a shame when my bike is done...

    I was happy with 720 for a while. But wider was inevitable. 785 arrived today

    I have a Cobia and I upgraded everything except for the seatpost clamp and headset.

    I was sad when I was done but now I'm just saving up for the next project bike, hopefully full suspension this time

    Get replacement BOA knobs now. I speak from experience. I have ripped of 4 from Lake boots. A few in wrecks, and one or two from trail side rocks etc. BOA give your free replacements, but its nice to have them on hand when you need them.
