    Picked up a set of Kenda Slant Six tires to lighten up the bike a tad for cross country night rides. They feel like rockets compared to the Mountain King 2.4 and Trail King 2.2 or 2.4 I usually run.

    Also picked up a set of cranks. Too good of a deal to pass up. Have not installed them yet.

I know it's an adjustment/bleed problem, but they can't get it fixed and don't find out till we hit the high country, which sucks.

    Aaah, sure, didn't figure that out! I guess the heating is also quite an issue on loong descents, with hydraulic brakes - now and then i feel my brakes changing responsiveness due to the oil heating up! ;)

    Nice, I've been thinking about switching to these when my current pedals go. Looks like the bottom of your crank arm has seen better days....ouch. You must have some rocky terrain where you are at. I know we have plenty of it here in TX.

    Purchased a cheapo rim and spokes for my fixie to build up a vintage track hub that I had laying around. My first complete wheel build. I've laced many wheels before and trued numerous (I work at a lbs) but this is my first complete build. Pretty good, good tension, especially for doing it at home without shop tools. Dish is off about 1 or 2mm...not a big deal for a fixie :lol: There are a couple vertical hops (small ones) that I'm going to try to finish truing out on my next off day from work. They aren't bad though. I'm pretty proud of myself on this one.

    Here's mine from today and this weekend.
    Unfortunately (for my wife and wallet) I have a Pearl Izumi store nun-too-far from my house so I picked up a pair of Pi X-Alps Drifts this weekend.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/gfisicaro/5906548381/" title="Untitled by renofizz, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6034/5906548381_37e4af7ef8.jpg" width="374" height="500" alt=""></a>

    Then went to my LBS and was going to pick up a pair of PD-M520 pedals to go with the shoe when their mechanic came up to me and was like, dude you want these!!!
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/gfisicaro/5907104406/" title="Untitled by renofizz, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6018/5907104406_c2a2d93023.jpg" width="500" height="374" alt=""></a>
    Handed me a pair of new PD-M530s! Apparently, same exact mechanism as the 520 but has a lower grade outter body that is the exact same mold for the XTRs. Figure for only $10 more I might as well give them a try. First clipless so should be interesting.

    List price on the website is $89, but they have it on eBay, too, with an opening bid of $72 w/ free shipping. I was the only bidder. Here's another one they've got up there, with 14 minutes left:
