    I got a set of wheels built unfortunately they are for my Road bike. I haven't been buying much for my mt bike lately because I am hopping to buy a new Mt. Bike next year. Here they are at the Bike shop, I picked them up last week, but haven't had a chance to get them mounted yet I think I will wait until the weather gets a little better.

    I was in a shop the other day and all I really needed was some cable end caps and I kind of wanted red to match the other anodized red on my bike. They didn't have any but the manager brought this kit out that also has ends and it was red. At first I was like '$20! you got to be kidding me.' But upon closer inspection they are made really well and add a bit of bling and they look like they will not wear out. They fit the housing very well and have little brass washers inside to fit tight around the cable and provide a perfectly flat surface for the stainless strands in the housing to dead end on.

    The kit comes with enough for a full bike with cable brakes too. 4 and 5mm and 4 end caps. It would be nice if they offered just 4mm kits for those with hydraulic brakes.

    A bit much but so what.

    I don't know if they come in other colors or not.

    New wheels (Arch 29ers on X.9 hubs from Handspun). Can't wait to mount 'em up! Tubeless at last.

    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    This is my new Focus Black Forest 3.0 (I call him "Lancelot Jones"), Wellgo C135 platform pedals and a bunch of solvents, lubricants and brushes to try to get the 41 (+/-) pounds of sand out of my bike after each ride.

    Tore the sidewall on my Bronson,
    thought I'd give the TCS Moto a shot.
    Got another Bronson at the same time if I don't like the Moto. I like how it looks though. Similar to the Hans Dampf.

    For my road bike. I've had "the tingles" a few times and I'm hoping this fixes it. I don't think I sit down enough on my mtn bike to need one.

    Rotors are the Alligator Wind Cutter's with the Ti-Ni coating...I wanted to bump up a size from 160mm (to 180mm) and got a good deal on them

    BB5's...and once they're set up properly they work great

    I see the advantages of BB7's, but can properly set up BB5's..so I could save a few bucks there when I bought these brakes a couple years ago. The rotors stop well and are fairly quiet. Especially compared to the Avid Roundagon's that came with the calipers

    I second this.

    I have properly adjusted bb5's that came stock on my bike, Paired up with SD7 levers and some Alligator Serration rotors, they stop fantastic, feel great, rub free, and quiet! Once the pads wear out, I'll get BB7's, but until then, I'm pretty damn satisfied with a cheaper brake and its job of stopping me!

    I ride aggressive XC, and a couple times some DH, they still work great.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    I probably won't even get BB7's for this bike because new brake pads are cheaper (I'm on my second set too).

    Thanks, but my inquiry was really about the rotors

    I run BB5&7's since a few years. I have no fear of them. Just that I need to choose a rear 140mm rotor to pair with a BB7 and not sure yet between the wind cutter or Avid HS1. I prefer more durability and performance than ultra light weight parts. 16g difference between both wind cutter and HS1, so not much of a deal breaker.
