Supply and demand. Many more manufactures in the game creates competition. More consumers creates demand. Youíd 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!

    Well, the green isn't boring, that's for sure! And as for getting it dirty, that's the plan for this weekend! :-)

    Saw this posted this week, the more I researched it the more valuable an addition it became for $40.

    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.

    Ah yes - new bike smell is great. And new bike smell is probably healthier for you than new car smell!

    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 26Ē w/ 2Ē 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.

    Some winter riding gear from planet x.

    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.
