    I was thinking to myself about that figure; I bet I could build a decent wheelset for $400. :)

    Now that's interesting! 😁Didn't even realize Photobucket dislikes sharing pictures from Google Drive, oops. Fixed now.

    There's a few, here's one from the OC: http://forums.mtbr.com/off-camber-of...s-1049460.html

    And now back to our originally scheduled program: Renthal FatBar Lite 740mm x 30mm Rise x 31.8 Bar Clamp (I was going to post a link, but it looks like I got one of the last ones at Universal for the $43 price instead of $84).

    Threw a RF 30T on the front along with an XTR derailleur replacing my bashed XT rd. Happy with the gear ratios with the 11/36 rear where I'm riding currently

    Last week when I received the email from Photobucket. I almost jumped and forked out the $400. Then I realized I needed to feed myself this month so I opted out.

    Weird thing is I just signed up about 3 weeks ago, it seemed like a nitemare to navigate, so I said "f*it".😁

    I realize that this is a dumb question, I keep my pictures in my computer. Why would you want to put them in photobucket?

    I've always been weary of those free photo hosts, figuring they would pull this type of stunt at some point, once they had a large number of people with a ton of photos hosted. Very easy for them to take the files hostage, though at $400 I'm betting they are going to fail big time. If they'd made it $8 a month, it probably would have worked.

    Got them in a couple days shipped thru DHL.

    When I was selecting parts for my 29er, I wanted the Ancho ones in white but were not available, so went with RF.

    Yours will match my new bike IF it was a flat bar bike. 😁

    I'll sell them to you for less than retail @ $75. :D Nothing wrong with a flat-bar roadie bike!

    I looked at those Ancho bars too, On-One has some good stuff, just wished they used DHL!

    New ride, and my first carbon bike: 2017 Niner Rip 9 RDO.

    I previously had an alloy 2014 Niner WFO9. Great bike but it developed play in the suspension bearing housings just under 3 years in. Probably my fault for not often enough checking for bearing tightness. No way to repair and no replacement rear swing-arms still available for a 2014 bike. So this forced me into getting a new frame but Niner was awesome and gave me a 60% discount on a new frame.

    Previous WFO and new RIP are both 150mm frames with similar geometry. So fork, dropper, front wheel, drivetrain and all other parts from the WFO moved over to the new frame.

    Had to buy a new rear wheel to fit the boost frame (previous WFO was not boost) so went with a carbon Light Bicycle with 31.8 internal width and I9 hub (side note: previous Stans hub on Flow EX was not reliable, hence the spendy upgrade to I9).

    Rides great, and lighter than the alloy WFO. I don't know if it's the new Fox shock versus the previous RS Monarch, but this is even more plush than my previous WFO, which was already really plush when fully open.

    Glad to be riding again as I didn't have a back-up bike while this frame change was sorted out.

    Ok here they are I needed to go full site on my mobile. Now I am at a stop point because I don't have a bb removal tool and my lbs are closed Monday so will get that done tomorrow. Also my fork steer is 160 long so I am not able to run spacers.... or a dust cap, I am not to worried at the moment but will talk to my lbs about it tomorrow.

    Ordered something for my wife's new car and by complete accident, stumbled into the bike section of the site.

    Been wanting a handy snack or grub pouch,
    Seen a great price on a 720mm carbon bar (oldie bike has a 590 or 600)
    Figured the old man needs to try those Ergo grips

    Still, she way outspent me with her new wheelz. :rolleyes:

    I must start snapping pics then. Picked up my 2018 Giant Talon 2 weeks ago, bought some new peddles, biking undies, still to arrive, neoprene chain stay protector, new Odi lock on grips, and new end caps.
    Can't seem to post pics. But I received silicone crank ends today.

    Just finished assembling my new (2017 closeout) Trek ProCaliber 9.6.

    Converted to GX 1x11, 780 RF carbon bar, short stem and carbon seat post. Set the tires up tubeless and slapped a set of XT pedals on. Gonna go dial it in tomorrow morning. :cool:
