    That's quite a lot of money for just a few white brand logos. But I'm glad you're supporting your local bike shop

    Could it be that it's just re badged equipment with pretty colors? My Loaded AMX wheelset hubs are made by NovaTech/Joytech.... D992SB (RH) - Novatec
    I can honestly say that these wheels are great... and better than any Azonic Outlaw wheelset I have ever purchased.They are hand laced in America but all parts come from China.

    I was looking for a Thomson so this was much less and the quality is on par. It actually looks and feels like a Thomson as well. I try to support my small local bike shops whenever I can. Its tough because there can be a big difference in price from e-tailers but if its a few bucks difference, then I'd rather buy it locally.

    I like the Loaded stuff. For me, it started out with a set of their grips. After trying ODIs, WTB and other various grips..the Loaded just felt the best so I thought to give their other products a try and so far I'm liking them. They're a California based company so I'm keeping it in the state. Funny thing is, its on a frame from Canada.

    Maybe its the branding that makes its odd looking to some.

    See, now I am seeing better things here. A nice RM frame with RaceFace components, made in Canada.

    Loaded stuff is just re-badged products from over-sea, a good example is their Signature hubs that sells for twice the price as the Novatec D991/D992 hubs, while they are actually Novatec D991/992 hubs.

    Next time get the RaceFace stuff, looks even better IMO

    Believe me when I tell you, Loaded products are not, "on par" with Thomson products. Thomson products are in a completely different league.

    As long as you like it and it serves your needs, that's all that matters. And, if you can save money, I totally understand that.

    I was just making sure you knew where your money was going. Nothing wrong with buying stuff made over sea, but just make sure you know who's getting the lion's part.

    I can't comment on Thomson products since I never had them. RaceFace is sure a safe buy, even more on older years close-outs where you get the stuff for $20 instead of $80.

    Thanks for the info. These days, what companies aren't outsourcing? Not many. Santa Cruz have frames they've outsourced to a Taiwan manufacturer.

    Thought I was the only one who smuggled parts into the house. I had parts hidden all over the house while I was collecting them for a new bike build earlier this year.

    Me too. I've been collecting parts for my Spearfish build for months. they've been hiding in separate boxes and closets. then we bought a new house, and moved 2 weeks ago. Somehow all those boxes ended up together and I threw everything on the frame the other day. She didn't seem to notice.

    Rear brake line was short...doh!

    Thanks. I also bought a box of 100 black brass ones and a pack of 75 gold brass ones just in case they start showing some sign of corrosion. Brass is way cheaper too, only cost me about $15 for the 100pcs black ones and $17 for the 75 gold ones (not painted, electroplated), whereas DT anodized alloy where about $35 for a box of 100pcs.

    At first I wanted to go with brass because of the corrosion issues, like you experienced. But then after further research, it would appear only Enve wheels where experiencing the galvanic corrosion and apparently was due to using non anodized alloy internal nipples.

    Either way, I have my fingers crossed and the brass nipples on stand-by.

    Why did you choose bladed spokes? Is this for a MTB?

    Yes, will go on my XC FS bike with 160/140 rotors.

    Mostly because bladed spokes are easier to keep from winding up when you build the wheels and they look like the part.

    How did you get the nipples set in the their respective holes? Did you fish them?

    With great patience and determination. Run a derailleur cable trough the spoke hole all the way to the valve hole, fish the end of the cable out with needle nose pliers. Slide the nipple (make sure to get the right color first) on the cable and crimp a open cable end on the cable. Pull the whole thing back till you get the nipple to seat in the hole, and pull the cable back out. Next hold on steady to the nipple and thread it onto the spoke. A mini vicegrip is very useful. If you happen to knock the nipple back into the rim, take a deep breath and flip the rim around till it falls out and repeat the whole process.

    Once you get it down, it's about 3-5 minutes per nipple. So a few hours for the wheelset.

    I bought it used, and when I got it, it was covered in dirt and the chain had some surface rusting so I took it apart and cleaned it and while I does need some work done to it for $200 I think I got a great deal on it.
    Note: The date and time on the pic is incorrect, my cameras battery was dead and I wanted to quickly take the pic.

    Got everything together for my wheel build, but Universal sent me the wrong nipples. D'oh! Oh well, at least they expedited me the correct ones.

    Also bought a used Monarch RT3 for my BLT. It isn't the right compression tune so I tore it down and I'm waiting on some parts to rebuild it.

    My Canfield Bros YelliScreamy

    Recently finished this build, had a bike fit (the geometry was different than all my other bikes) and finally got it dialed in to where it is an AMAZING ride! Bought the frame used from a guy on one of the other MTB sites in SoCal and ordered wheels, fork, bars, 2x10 drivetrain components....

    Picked up some new kicks during the sale at Performance.

    Sometimes I think my wife is a bad influence. She noticed Performance was having a "clearance" sale (it's right next to TJMaxx, so off course she saw the sale signs ) and pointed out that I could use some new shorts. We loaded up and headed out there. . . . . I picked up a pair of shorts and she picked up two more, then mentioned that I might want some more jerseys (three more) and maybe a base layer for this winter. . . . . . . so three jerseys, three pairs of shorts, a baselayer, and a new saddle later she looks at me and says, "don't you need a new pair of shoes?"

    Gravity G29 FS

    my new single-speed 29er... got her off of BikeIsland for $329, then swapped in a few parts from the spare parts bin.

    I'm new to both 29er's & single-speed - hopefully, I know what I'm getting myself into!
    So anxious to take her out on her maiden voyage!

    4' of 5/16" grade 70 steel chain to lock up my commuter. And a 16" steel rectifier for beating the bejesus out of the poor soul who's gonna fail trying to cut that chain.

    Way to go, now your other bike is going to feel left out and cheated on. You'll love the 29/SS, it's like crack but worse.

    New saddle. Yeah I know, a white saddle on a mt bike; not the best idea, but for $23 I couldn't pass it up.

    You're right, my other bike has been getting less attention since I've been putting this green beast together. And now when I go into the garage, I just stare at the bike... forgetting my other bike in the corner of the garage.

    Took her out for the first time today - pulling my son on a trail-a-bike trailer.. a lot of stand-up pedaling & it was a blast! Now, I can't wait to take it on some real trails by myself!

    but I had to head out of town and just got my first look at them. Can't wait to hit the trails. Gotta wait for the water to settle from all the rain we've had.

    It was in the clearance bin at Performance. I don't think it was supposed to be there..... The marked down price, plus our military discount, plus the clearance sale discount (I don't think he was supposed to do that) brought it down to $23 before tax.

    Nice bike but after six weeks and about ~600 miles I'm still not in love with 29" wheels. The dropper post is nice once and a while but overall I'm not sure if it's worth the weight. I'm thinking some nice light carbon wheels and replacing the dropper post with a carbon post (and saving the dropper post for trips to Utah or western CO where there is a lot of the ledge drop type riding) would make the bike livelier.

    That is a beautiful bike but 29er's are definitely a love/hate relationship. My first higher quality mountain bike was a 29er hardtail and I just didn't enjoy the ride at all. Tried a FS for a bit but both felt to sluggish for me so I went back down to a 26. I do miss the rollover and overall rolling speed but can't go back.


    As for my latest purchase:



    Now to just suck it up and spend the cash to get my 50mm Chromag Ranger... so hard to let go of money but that's my dream stem so got to do it!

    I love the helmet. It has great protection, light weight, good airflow. I live in the desert Southwest and it is fairly cool in the summer. my previous helmet was a Giro Xen.

    Ok..

    ... technically, the latest bike related purchase were derailleur & brake cables. But they did go on to finish up assemble of the following bike. I kept procrastinating all summer on the build since I was riding my other bike.
