Supply and demand. Many more manufactures in the game creates competition. More consumers creates demand. You’d think it would even out and start to go down in price.
    Thanks!!

    True about the prices... with the rise in them you think hey would be more solid.

    I went with the Thomson because of that fraction of a wiggle I could not stand every post I tried out...

    Just bought this last week. I wasn't going to pull the trigger yet, but it was one of those good deals I hate miss out on. It's a 2017 Trek Fuel EX 9.8 29er. I already knew I liked 29ers (I have a hardtail 29), and this seemed to be a good "all rounder" from the reviews I read. So, end of season, good price (about 38% off - it was a demo), the type of bike I was looking for and it was actually in my size. Not too keen on the green, but the price was right! Rode it last weekend at Vedder mountain here in BC and loved it!

    Wolf Tooth ReMote

    Replaced the crappy Thompson lever with the Wolf Tooth ReMote after the cable snapped. So far I am happy with it. Just have to get used to the new location.

    My Trek was a 26# pig. So I did a little work and got it down to 24#. Could get it down to 23.5# pretty easily, but didn't want to spend big $$$ on the Garburuk cassette.

    XO Cranks
    Kovee 23 Wheels
    XR3 front/XR1 Rear tires
    SLX brakes
    180F/180R rotors
    Sunrace 11/50 cassette (probably the only thing on the list heavier than the part it replaced)
    And a nifty little Co2 holder (trying to get away from running a pack even on long rides)

    And for the cold season, some new NorthWave Extreme MTB-GTX shoes

    New Diamondback Haanjo Trail. With the coming rainy season, this is going to be my do-it-all get outside machine. A little commuting, some gravel rides, some road rides, etc.

    Where did you get a 26 in short travel left?? That is a great find. I was thinking about getting one for my Palomino. Let me know what you think.

    Nice! As a new comer to this kind of bike, I sure like them! They aren't mountain bikes, but it's nice having some versatility...

    Found some scooter mitts at a good price reviewed by some all-season mtn bikers that said they fit nice and work well.

    About 20% the cost of bike specialty stuff.

    B, I didn't. This Lefty is a long travel 29'er. It came with this bike.

    I think the Lefty Oliver (Cannondale Slate) would work for you. It is a 30mm travel fork and is designed for 650b with a 41c tire. That would be about the same rollout as a 26” w/ 2” tire.

    Ordered this, Bronson CC XT Build, last week.So Clean and Shiny by Brett Valentine, on Flickr

    Ordered this from Amazon while I waited for the bike to come, OneUp 30t chainring for Deore XT
    Untitled by Brett Valentine, on Flickr

    Only problem? I don't have XT cranks, I have Raceface Turbine. So now, my drive side crank is in pieces on my workbench while I wait for the correct ring to come. I ordered it with 2 day shipping, so my weekend should be safe.

    I have the opposite problem: 2 RaceFace chainrings in my tool box and XT cranks. I am awaiting delivery of the XT chainring I ordered to get one of my hard tails running.
    Too bad we are not neighbors, or too bad there is not a standard crank bolt pattern.

    And a pair of Schwalbe Winter 30 mm tires for my road bike. Front tire fits, the rear tire catches onto the brake mount. Everything else fits, so quite pissed off with it Were the mount just a bit higher and it would fit, but now the studs catch onto it. Ehh, can't always go right I guess.

    This mount for my new to me GoPro. Looks pretty solid, I didn't enjoy the helmet mount, and I put the handlebar mount that came with the GP on my road bike.

    Looks pretty stable, testing tomorrow.

    My Guide RS are working great for the moment, but after replacing the pistons twice and still having another mystery issue, I'm not waiting on them to crap out again, and may just mount these up as soon as all the related parts arrive(rotors, bleed kit, fluid, extra pads, Shiftmix adapter for dropper remote all en route).

    Well, as way of not getting a hole in your head, it looks pretty cool.

    Couldn't pass up a chance to try "ovality" for $20 on clearance. It's weird, but it makes a difference. I can't exactly put my finger on how it feels different, but it's like my pedal stroke is "more round" with it. (Yeah yeah...I know I have to clean the rest of the bike....)

    Got rid of the above bar, right hand, plunger lever for my Reverb. Install was pretty easy, and it really cleans things up on the bar.

    Probably hold off on installing them, since I have other things to do and gotta ride in the morning, but it's starting to feel like Christmas around here, already!

    It is a completely different bike DJ. I still have the old 26'er, but just got a 29'er big brother for it. Both frames are older models that were built for 80mm forks. I run 100mm forks on both and they ride great. Slacker geometry is the new normal, right?

    Mine always did that as well. I get around that by opening the pic in my Preview(on a Mac) and just rotating it around 4 times before I upload it to here. That seems to have fixed the problem for me

    It's turning out to be incredibly difficult to find a saddle that fits me. This is the sixth one and it actually felt much better due to the cutout. Bought it second hand on the cheap and turned out it's broken. One of the rails is not fully inserted in the mounts and there doesn't seem to be a way to make it stay there. This makes the saddle uneven when mounted on the bike, argh.

    Of course the seller failed to mention this, first time I got a broken product from the local craigslist. I guess I have been lucky and this would happen eventually...

    ^^^ It looks like it's in good shape. Even though you're not the original owner, you might investigate how to get a manufacturer warranty seeing it sounds like a defect. Not sure how to go about that though.

    I know right! It looked totally okay to me too at first, and it wasn't until you put it on the post that you can see how one side is higher than the other (forgot to take a picture of that). After investigating it further it turned out the rail that isn't mounted properly is also bent slightly. It's a titanium rail, so it must have taken some force to bent it. I'm pretty sure the earlier owner had the bike fall over/crashed and the saddle caught onto something, but I'll never know... The tip of the saddle used to be a carbon fiber cup, but that had fallen off too and was fixed with some sort of glue. That was mentioned in the ad, though.

    Good idea about warranty. Although I'm not sure how they would go about it since the earlier owner has definitely tried to tinker with the mount at least. So they might see that as the cause rather than a defect. But worth trying, nothing to lose with this.

    Repaired Roach pads

    This isn't exactly a new purchase. but I did pick these up today from a local repair shop. These are Roach arm and leg pads that I've had for around 20 years! I recently had all the velcro and straps replaced! I know they're not the latest and greatest, but I have fond memories of buying from the Roach store that that founder of Roach, Ingrid Doerr, used to run here in Vancouver back in the day! Retro, but they still work!
