    New Shimano brakes

    Just got these. Great stopping power, good modulation, and at a great price. Could have spent a lot more, but checked out all the reviews, tested them out. They work great.

    Plenty light enough for me. I'm not a weight weenie.

    Oh bummer you had to sell the dirt bike. But that KTM bike looks like a pretty sweet replacement.

    I really loved my Spesh Comp MTB's but the buckles keep stripping teeth. At 20$ a set it doesn't take long before new shoes just becomes more economical.

    I don't know if it's bad juju or going to make me look like a blow hard being a MTBer with a road bikers jersey, but I got my first jersey. I've been wanting one for the ventilation and the utility of the back pockets but couldn't justify the cost.

    Picked up a jersey at the local thrift shop for $3.50! They had 2 others but they looked well used while the one I got looks almost new.

    I just picked up a jersey too, although I got mine new on clearance. I've checked the local thrift shops but the jerseys they get in always seem to be used up, or super small.

    I like that one, not full of logos and text. The others i saw looked used and gross but the white on this one is still clean and the elastics are still strong.

    I'm about to head out to buy waders and boots for fly fishing, I'm excited! I'll post a pic later with my newest bike purchase which was a light bicycle 38mm rim to replace my current rear rim which took some damage but still seems to be holding up fine. I also have a new saddle on order for my back-up bike.

    Was it a LB rim that was damaged?

    3T Ionic zero carbon seatpost + Bontrager Rl MTB shoes. My first pair of SPD shoes, coming from flat pedals. The pedals will be the Shimano M520.
    Also I got a 3T MTB team stem 85mm/-10 degree + 3T Team Steatlh carbon 720mm flat handlebar, I forgot to take photos of those.

    It was. It's a gash on the outer sidewall. I'm not sure when or how it happened, I just noticed it when checking out my bike closely one day. It was probably from going fast through sections with loose big rocks. It looks like a rock was kicked up into the rim really hard.

    Cleaned the bike to celebrate the arrival of two 2.50 minion dhfs, slightly regret not getting the double down casing when I felt how thin the sidewalls are. Ah well, its not particularly rocky out here I just like reassurance. Mounted no problem with a floor pump as usual.

    It's a cross between fluorescent red and orange. It's supper bright and super cool.

    Here is a good example of the color when placed near a true bright red (the truck) and other bike colors including a persimmon orange colored Juliana bike.

    Thank you. It's sort of a learning experience since I was used to the bumps of the hard tail but I think I'm getting use to the rear movement of the suspension.

    Is that your current ride? Looks nice.

    Avid 180mm front rotor

    I switched out my 160 mm front rotor for a 180mm Avid brake rotor. Going to hit some trails this weekend to try it out.

    Nice! I replaced my second gen clean sweep rotors, with avid third gen clean sweep, but as soon as I put my rear on I could tell that it was bent, I think the usps put something heavy on the package and now it's bend. It's a pain in the ass to straighten it

    How's the shifting with the 11 speed derailleur?
    I'm thinking of going 1x10, with a Saint shifter, but I was going to use a Zee mech and a 11-36 cassette.

    I heard about using the SunRace cassette for a much bigger range, but i'm worried about the Zee being able to stretch that much, so I'd like to use a medium cage for that, SLX maybe.
    But it seems that the XT 11 spd derailleurs shift bettter with 10 speed wide range cassettes cause they were designed for bigger cogs, right?
    So what's your opinion on that setup so far.

    I'm no expert on drive trains, but I have had no problems running my 1X10 set up with my Sunrace cassett. Shifts very smooth. I have a Shimano Shadow 10 speed clutch med cage mech. I also have a 32t Wolf tooth oval chainring up front. You should not have any issues with an 11 speed set up, but I'd do more research on it.

    Yeah, I've been doing some research and since most 10 speed mechs were designed for a 36 cog max, shifting isn't as nice because they have to stretch a little bit more to be able to shift int 40 or 42 cogs. 11 speed mechs are specifically designed to handle big cogs so they should work better.

    Well, I think I will just pick the cheapest option when the time comes then. Be it SLX, XT or XT 11 speed.

    Picked up a new front tire for the Spider and for Jeni's Tracer. Paired up with the Trail Boss in the rear you've got a decently fast rolling combo that will grip harder than an angry mom with a naughty child at WalMart. Behold, the WTB Convict 2.5.

    To shift or not to shift

    Some say "will work" some say "won't"....When this 9 speed Deore replaces the bent Acera, I will finally know the truth about 9 speed dérailleurs on an 8 speed drivetrain !

    I'm running an 11 speed derailleur with a 10 speed cassette so your setup should work fine.

    All about how much cable shifters pull/release per click, and what the leverage ratio is on your RD (and also the spacing between cassette cogs). In your case, the DynaSys works on the same leverage ratio and cable pull. An 11spd shifter just has 1 more click. The 11 speed rear derailleur follows a different curve as it shifts through its range, intended for wide range cassettes; a slanted parallelogram would simple follow a straight slanted path, while a RD with an offset upper pulley follows more of a curve, which happens due to the cage getting pulled forward and the offset pointing more downwards rather than rearwards (middle of cassette) or up-and-back (on the 11t end of cassette). The RD shifts best when the upper pulley is as close as possible to the cogs as possible (maintaining a minimum amount of clearance), throughout the range of the cassette.

    It's possible to jury rig an incompatible setup to work, but you'd need to delve into the art of altering the leverage on your rear derailleur.

    For those wondering: It does work ! After the expected fidelling with the adjustment screws, the 9 speed Deore works very well with the 8 speed cassette and Acera 8 speed shifters.

    Truth be known, Shimano was wrong...


    P.S: I know the white tie-wrap sucks, but I'm all out of black ones.

    Until you hit 10+ speed, shimano is all in the shifter. I thought everyone new that. So of course a 9s rd would work.

    Nice! I gave up on my rear rotor, there is no saving it; and the worst part is that its brand new rotor. Guess I'll buy a new one from JensonUSA.

    I posted about a week or so regarding the new fork I'd bought. At the time, it hadn't arrived yet, so I had to use a stock image. Here's the new fork, in all her glory before I got her all dirty today riding!

    2017 RockShox Recon Silver RL (29er)

    Post a PIC of your latest purchase [bike related only]-13692134_10207907681823162_485525144_o.jpg

    What a difference this fork makes! It's got 100mm of travel, a remote lockout, and uses air. My previous (stock) fork had 75mm of travel, no lockout at all, and used a coil spring. Riding today was like riding a totally new bike! I love it!

    Thanks for the welcome. It rides so nice. I got the suspension dialed in perfect today. It has 6" of travel front and rear and I'm within a 1/2" of using the full travel on the biggest jumps and drop-offs my local trails have to offer. The frame is nice and stiff and the Bontrager XR4 expert 27.5x2.4 tires bite great down at 28-30lbs. I have the mino link adjustable geometry in the rear set up in the slacker position which has the head angle at 66.5° with 10-1/2" bb clearance. This thing climbs like a goat too.

    Want to bring my Bronson to Winter Park and was tired of renting gear so figured this is a good start.
