    I am loving the Vaults I put on my fatbike. Not that I have used them much lately because of the warm and sloppy winter, but I will be riding in Mega Caverns in a little less than 2 weeks and Ray's a little bit after that.

    Based on your picture you're running the Saints with the spacers in the pins. They are much grippier with the spacers removed fyi. That said, enjoy the DMRs.

    I went for a ride this morning and the grip is on a whole new level. I couldn't wipe the grin off my face. My feet were glued to the pedals, and that was wearing Nike SB skate shoes so I can only imagine how crazy it would be with Five Tens.

    I spent 20 minutes applying blue Loctite to the Vault pins, something which is recommended. I suppose not having washers they have a tendency to come loose over time.

    Like robncircus mentioned, I could have removed the washers from the Saints to provide more grip but I got the Vaults for US $72 with free shipping (from wiggle) so I couldn't say no.

    I find the Vaults a lot nicer because your feet sit "in" the pedals, rather than "on top" like they do with the Saints.

    This comes down to a few reasons:
    1) The Vaults have a noticeably larger footprint.
    2) The Vaults have more (and taller) pins, creating a greater concave profile.
    3) The third and perhaps most important reason is because the middle section of the Vaults (the part that houses the axle) is the same height across the entire width of the pedal, whereas the Saints only go halfway (as well as being raised up) which gives an uneven feeling under foot.

    The problem now is these are for a build, but now I want them on my Heckler (which has the same pedals but black) -

    They are well made and light, great grip and really look awesome.

    now I want those blue ones on my BMX!! Don't know if they would fit the cranks, but htye would fit the color scheme

    I do love the grip, and how small and light they are. I ride in everything from Chuck Taylors to hiking boots and they grip well with all.

    When I ordered them from Amazon that particular seller said "only 1 left" although I think that probably BS. lol - I've seen them go up to regular price of $90.00 but they go back and forth. They also have them in red I think.

    got a new stem for my Scalpel. unfortunately the one I needed was not exactly available. I got a 1.5 stem and needed the Headshok. that is 1.56 Dia. So I took it over to my father in law and we milled it out. Got it to 1.559. It fits better than the original.

    Snagged this from Monoprice of all places, they have their Pure Outdoor line and I must say I am pretty impressed with it. It is very similar to a JetBoil, I wouldn't be surprised if it is a slightly repacked version of it which is common of Monoprice. I have a couple tours this year, one short and one long will see how it fares.

    Also got one of their 2L bladders for my gravel races, my old camelbak was getting pretty gross. This came with a insulated hose which is nice for the real hot races I do and a cover over the mouthpiece(has same bite valve as a camelbak, even blue).

    What is this thing and where can I find a place that will rent it out. Do you need to know CAD and stick an STL file in there and let it work it's magic?

    No CAD or model file needed. It looks like a manual Bridgeport with auto feed.

    Fresh deliveries!

    Got a new set of wheels built up. WTB Frequency i25 rims. Hope Pro 4 hubs. 32 spokes. DT Swiss spokes with brass nipples.

    Hope QR skewer to round it out.



    My old MT15 rims were center lock so I needed new rotors too. My old rims were so narrow they fit inside the rims

    Got some Stans tape to set them up tubeless too



    Also picked up a derailleur hanger tool as well as even the brand new hanger I got was slightly out when I installed it.

    Now the snow needs to melt!

    For the bike, 27.5 Flow MK3 with XD driver. Bike doesn't have any red, so I'll probably debadge the Red Stans NoTubes stickers and just leave the "FLOW" stickers.

    Edit: I REALLY like the fact they've gone hookless.

    Picked up my new bike from Wrench Science this week. Suuuuuper stoked!

    It was fitted perfectly before I even got there to sit on it. Major attention to detail. Last time I went on a ride with Henry he was observing my ride style and handlebar configuration. So when I picked up the bike it was set up exactly how I like it. Talk about customer service. Haha

    Order up some custom fork decals for my Pike from Stikrd too!

    Many 'latest' purchases here. Went from 7 to 8 speed, 12-28 to 11-28.
    Front is 46/34, was 48/36. Lower low, higher high. Rack is new, 8sp thumbies, powder coat, decals, you get the idea. Gave the old guy a new lease on life.
    Shifting is so much smoother with the jumps not being as far apart.

    Oi - this means I posted this in the wrong thread....

    Pinion Mesa trail, west side of Farmington, NM, just after you finally get to some singletrack. Lots of great places to check out on any loop you take, with terrain changes like nothing else around here. If you need more info on the area, give me a PM.

    Giant Contact SLR seat on my Yeti. Faux pas? Maybe. Considerably more comfortable than the stock seat on the SB5? FASHO!!!

    It even matches, kinda......

    Yeah, that Fi'zi:k Tundra M7 saddle that came on my SB5 was replaced after 3 rides. Not a fan at all. Ended up going with an old favorite... WTB Pure V. I'm sure a bit heavier, but I have one on my hardtail and that Pure V just works well for me.

    A floor pump that I desperately needed, went with Blackburn because I love my mini pump but I'm tired of using it before going for a ride, so got the Jenson's pump it had decent reviews and a good price - and then some SLX Cranks grabbed those last night as they were on sale.

    Sorry for the terrible pic

    Time to retire my TLD knee/shin guards after 2 pairs over the years. Moving on to try something new to me. They seem to feel as though they will move much less. I hope they are comfortable after a few hours.

    Should have looked into hitch racks 4 years ago. Think I paid almost as much for a trunk rack as this hitch and rack. They just don't have "Yakima" stickers on them

    Win. I just ordered one of these (27.5 version). Can you send me tire clearance pics for the rear and let me know what tires and rim width you went with? I'm wondering if I can fit a 2.8 Plus tire on this. I tried to PM you but did not have the option.

    Boring for most, but makes it easier to stop to eat after big rides, not worry about getting rear ended, etc.

    I ride in roadie bibs with baggy zoic shorts on top. I have had the pi quest shorts and bibs. Their bibs were OK for a few months but then caused massive chaffing. I am currently using some Louis garneau superleggara bibs that I got on clearance and they are great. I'll never go back to liners or regular roadie shorts.

    Bibs are awesome. Most of my shorts are bib style and I much prefer them to anything else I've tried. I have a couple pairs of Castelli bibs that I really like. The chamois is great and they stay in place very well. I also ride in Lycra unless I'm going to the park with my kiddo. It is the right tool for road, gravel, and XC riding.

    I always wear bibs whether with baggies or not. I highly recommend Specialized Pro SWAT bibs. Very comfortable chamois and makes it so you can carry some schit (phone,food, pump, multi tool) in the back pockets and wear a baggy jersey/shirt.
