    Got these in finally. Too bad the budget's shot again and it's all gonna just sit for months.


    Since "Oil Can" finish isn't available I'm spending the rest of the evening polishing the cups out. Too bad they're also outed on the stainless 1-1/8" top-caps.

    Was a 26 inch display,never meant to be a bike,but bso,if I can fit a 26x2.0 or 26x 2.25 I can put 27.5 x 1.75 as long I can find the v brake arms.Outside and with are the same,I don't need aggressive tread on this.

    Wanted a lightweight pack to hold the essentials and more water than possible with two bottles, so got a Camelbak Classic with 2,5 litres reservoir. Was planning on getting an Evoc CC 3l instead, but the Camelbak was 30€ cheaper and could buy it locally so had to give it a try. It's my first hydration pack, we'll see how I like it

    After buying my Parktool PCS-10 Bike Stand I thought I should start buying matching tools. I know I don't "need" them, because I have most of them in other brands and shapes, But I thought why not.

    I do like the magnetic Parktool Bowl because I'm always placing stuff and forget where I placed them.

    The Partktool Work Tray will be arriving next week

    It's a fun learning experience! I've got a few rides on my first set and it very satisfying knowing that I built my own wheels. I'd highly recommend getting a Park TM-1 and Roger Musson's ebook that has everything you need to know.

    Got a few new parts installed today!

    Swapped out my 32T for a 30T NW (the start of this season is getting pretty rough this year with that 32)

    Got my carbon bars installed and also put a Knog Oi bell on the right side of the handle bars. It's a rather polite sounding bell and blends right in. Beats shouting for the hikers to hear you coming. Between this and a Hope hub, they should hear me coming now.

    I tried that Knog Oi in the 22.2mm variety. It wasn't loud enough for me. You gotta keep ringing it until you get a response. The 31.8mm version (for road handlebars) is another story though. Using a Timberline right now (got it from Jenson with 15% off coupon), but think the Spurcycle v2 will be the one to get.

    J/K. New 26x2.8" WTB Ranger/Minion DHF and new Hope Pro4/Stan's Flow MK3 wheelset. Loving 26+ so far!

    There actually is a new cable in there, too! While everything isn't exactly new, it's the first pic I got to show it all together. And to anyone thinking of building their own wheels, do it, you won't regret it!

    A boost-width 100mm Reba.

    ...and it fits a 3.0 tire (mounted on an i43 rim). The angle is just funny. It has plenty of clearance all the way around.

    Re-forked my gravel grinder / bike-packing rig. More attachment points and less weight than the suspension fork that was on the bike from its previous life as my main MTB.

    Doing a little "island hopping" this week as a small vacation with my fiance up on the "Bass" Islands in Lake Erie. She has never been there. We are going to bike and camp - her first intro to bike packing (very light, but I don't want to scare her off at first)
    1. 2 extra tubes for our 26er paved trail bikes. (Old mid '90's Trek Mountain Track 830 and 820)
    2. REI Sleeping pad for her.

    ...and

    this riding will be my first post heart attack riding, and I needed to join the fitness monitor crowd to be smart about things anyways. I am sooo excited about getting to know this guy. Almost everyone I talked to said to get the Garmin rather than a Fitbit since I ride, so BAM!!

    Still a bit more till time I get to hit the dirt trails ,but it is closer than farther now!!

    Congrats & Happy Bday

    the Vivoative is a great bit of kit for an awesome price, the amount of info these "sports watches" can collect is mind blowing.
    Good thing is mine showed me that I was fitter than I thought , and combined with MyFitnessPal that I was drinking too much beer (to be honest that hasnt really changed)

    yeah. I love it that it pairs up with My Fitness Pal. I am still just scratching the surface as to learning what the Garmin can do. Most excited to track the riding this weekend and my first golf game tomorrow

    Still waiting for black brass nipples to arrive, and then the build.

    It's a 26x2.8 WTB Ranger tire, WTB Scraper i35 rim, on a Nukeproof Generator 3-in-1 front hub for a rigid 26" Ti SS front wheel. The DT Comp spokes came with silver alloy nipples, but I decided I need a stealth look.

    Might be together inside of a month for riding.

    The front hub came with spacers for three different drop outs, and that helps for potential fork and bike swaps for this wheel.

    I've got my 26x2.8 Ranger on an i29 Flow, and I'm interested in seeing one on a wider rim. I also like seeing 26+ setups in general.

    1x11 conversion on my 2012 Carve. I ditched the front derailleur and put on a Race Race Micro 24t NW chainring and an 11-42 Shimano SLX Cassette. New SLX 11 speed shifter also installed but I kept the stock SLX cranks. I've been climbing like a champ since converting and haven't even used the top two gears yet!

    Nice, DF. I have a 2002 Quest, chrome 631 frame with blue anodized rims/hubs. Back then, the Quest still had traditional geometry with a top tube parallel to the ground. A nice steel bike will last forever and rides great! I love the minimalistic look of the thinner tubes. I also have her mountain biking twin sister, a 2003 Dakota in 631, it is my singlespeed. I've always wanted an Eclipse but not sure that will ever happen.

    In the spirit of being a very old college grad for the first time, my sweetheart and the fam. sponsored a fitting project bike. You're only as old as you feel and this takes me way back to the bmx days! Plus, with all the new slick track out there, this thing is going to rip

    2018 Fox Factory fork (150mm travel)

    2018 Fox Factory fork with 150mm travel. What's new is the EVOL has been added from their rear shocks to their forks now to give better bottom and mid stroke more bump compliance as well as a more tunable progressive end. Beefier negative air chamber is a good thing

    18 miles in and I'm loving it!

    Bike pack with tools. Tool kit is a little heavy, but I need box end wrenches for one of my bikes. $15.00 at Aldi's for the whole kit. I think the bag itself is $25 everywhere that I have looked.

    Post a PIC of your latest purchase [bike related only]-backpack.jpg
    Backpack, also $15. Wanted a backpack that would have webbing for water bottles, and also for extra food and a camera. To my surprise I found that it had a bladder when I got home.

    They also had a bike stand for $10 which I did not buy because kind of the object of ruining my afternoon by having to make a trip to Aldi's is not to spend a lot of money. I use my car bike rack carrier to work on my bikes.

    And finally, a Cane Creek DB Coil Inline.

    Was pleasantly surprised to find IGUS bushings pre installed, rather than the standard DU bushings.

    Can't wait to get everything installed and go for a decent ride (if only it would stop raining for five minutes...)

    I'm a bit of a sucker for things that are inexpensive and get decent reviews but I'm not ready to spend $150 on seat pack and I really don't want to build my own just now.

    $60 to $150 on pedals ?
    Naw, these will probably improve over the stock peds on my new bike.

    I'm all in at $51.00

    You bought this stuff at Aldi's? As in the discount supermarket chain???

    Yes, Aldi's. Think there was only one saddle bag left, some things disappear pretty quickly, like the $45 chainsaws. I must mention however that last winter I was working on my bicycle and my 15mm box end was nowhere in sight(in a tool box somewhere else on the property). I had seen that they had box end wrenches at Aldi's for $5. I knew we were going that day so I picked up a set, there was no 15mm. Sizes were 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 19, 21.
    How am I supposed to pick a line through this.

    Ideashop bike bag, amazon. I doubt it has the integrity or weight-bearing attributes of something 6 x that price but I don't need those features.

    Lots of upgrades to come!
    Upgraded stem, BB, tires, rear shifter at purchase. Wheels are next. Probably add a Wolf Tooth dropper lever and 49 tooth cog to that next. And a saddle. I like the feel of the WTB, but not the rail popping out. Suggestions?
