    X0 Trails.

    Details: great modulation, good lever feel and feedback, no noise, a breeze to setup. Thats it for now until I get more rides on them.
    Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.

    Switched the small chain ring on my 2x10 to a 22t from 24. Made the 429c a much better technical climber for steep, sustained sections.

    Had to repalace the WTB seat, it was creaking like mad. New one isn't any better. LBS said they'd seen a few of those.

    What I did lately to my Pivot was that I put it together. New Pivot owner, but not new to DW Link. Started with a used Firebird frame and some parts from my old IH 7 Point 3. Reused the Avid Code brakes, cassette, stem, bars, and RS Lyrik. New parts included Race Face Chester cranks and 30t narrow wide chainring, Sun Ringle Charger Pro wheelset, seat, and post. Hoping to get a dropper post eventually to finish it out. So far really happy with it. Rides a lot like the 7 Point 3 did but its so much lighter. Love it.

    What have you done to your Pivot Cycle lately?-rfbars.jpg

    swapped out the Answer bar and stem for the new Race Face 35x35mm bars and Atlas 35mm stem. Feels way better.

    Installed the biggest volume spacer in the Float X on the left….it comes with the medium one installed….but they should send out a spacer kit with any frame or bike purchase…just like the direct mount cover..hmm!!!

    When riding, I felt it blew through the last part of travel way too fast without that "bottomless" feeling I felt on my other bikes…this may be why some people are striking their pedals more on some chunkier tech stuff…for me..that was an issue

    If this works great..if not..either Avalanche or go for the CC DB Inline.

    Took it on various trails..works great…went down 10psi in the X and it feels waaay better. Definitely worth it.

    HAAA! I just did the same with my Les. Now that I have a 29+ HT, the Les is going to pull SS duty. I'm using 34t/20t and with dropper post it comes in a 22lbs. Looking forward to it, as this is my first real SS Mt. bike

    Have you gone up the side of the mcdowells yet with that thunderburt on there? I found that tire gives zero traction on the climbs, but super fast out at pemb and browns ranch.

    No, I bought the tire, on the cheap, a while back just to check it out. It's got snake skin, so if it lasts and is descent, I'll use this set up for the tame stuff and another set of wheels that have 2.2/2.3 Bonti's on it for the chunkier stuff like PMP, McD's. I'm not to sure I can go up the side of McD's on a SS yet... Hopefully one of these days.

    I washed it today!
    And found a crack!
    Been hearing a pop/creak noise while pedaling and it looks like I've found it

    Its on the milled section of frame behind the sprocket.
    Goes 3/4 of the way thru the piece

    NOT saying it was or you did, but man it looks like someone tried to cut the frame! I've never seen a crack that perfect on aluminum before.

    You don't have an ex girl friend that wants you dead, do ya?

    Good Luck, but no need cause Pivot will take care of you.

    Is your old rear triangle a thru axle? If so, you mind parting with it?
