    Wow! Looks awesome in all-stealth color. Can you please upload a better photo that shows the whole drive-side of the bike?

    Thanks!

    New tires: Bontrager XR4 Team Issue, on dryish ground at least really nice, feel like fast Fat Alberts
    Gearing update: Zee + spacer thing on X.9 shifter (9spd), RaceFace NW 32t chainring on one crankset + 34/24 rings on other cranks. FRM 36t cog on one wheelset to help with the hills.

    Also proved that there is significant chain growth on DW link as suspension bottoms out.... seems that I'll have to try medium cage XT next.

    Set up the Mach 5 as a lift/shuttle run bike. Waiting for stock on the 30T Race Face Narrow Wide chainring. Going single ring in the front.





    Left the valve cap at the bike shop. :/

    Bought a demo 429c from a local shop, trying to get some rides in as weather permits. Put a shorter stem (100 to 70) on it, cut the bars down from 30" to 28.5", got a reverb on it, and took the Slant Six off the front and replaced it with a Nobby Nic 2.25. Trying to set it up as a do it all trail bike.

    Let me know if you have any other suggestions to make it an all conditions, all trails ripper.

    I finally ditched the stock Pivot branded grips (hand killers) and put on a pair of ESI chunkys. Replaced the stock wheel set with a pair of Mavic Crossmax SLR wheels, with new Conti X-King tires (huge improvement). And swapped out original stem/bars/seatpost with some Shimano PRO parts, as well as putting on my old Serfas ARC saddle.

    Overall I shed a few pounds from the bike, and really improved an already high performing machine.

    I recently put the Chunky's on my Firebird. Definitely like them, and they seem to fit my hands better. The Pivot grips seemed to wear really fast also. It was obvious where my hand was placed just looking at the grip.

    Gave the 429 a bath to prep for the following:
    new shifters, new rear der, new chain, probably a new cassette and middle ring, and a specialized command post.

    Made her an upper guide from a bunch of old e13 parts and a brake adapter. Clutch derr should take care of the bottom:

    That's a very large single ring.

    I broke a spoke and a chain on my Firebird, on the same ride. That means a new spoke and chain for my Firebird. I love upgrades.

    The trick is to convince yourself it is smaller. Until I checked it the other day, I literally thought it was a 34t, and as a result was making myself power up every hill I could find.

    In all honestly I haven't had any dramas with it on the big hills yet. Logic says I probably will at some stage, so future plans will probably involve a 34t ring and probably a proper LG1 upper guide piece to stop the chain falling off 'outwards'

    Moved my Mach 4 from the uninsulated, unheated pole barn to the relative warmth of the basement during a stretch of consecutive sub-zero nights. Got to protect her sensitive bits.

    Is it bad for me to leave my 5.7 in the garage, where temps can reach below 25F (it's not sitting on it's tires)? I never thought of needing to put it in the basement.

    I have no proof that it's bad. I just figure if I can keep my prized possession from being exposed to temperature extremes, why not? It seems to me that as mtb's have gotten more sophisticated, with hydraulic brakes and suspension, there are more seals and fluids that might not hold up as well when exposed to temperature extremes.

    Swapped out my Fox 32 150 for a 34 talas on my 5.7c. The 32 felt like riding with a wet noodle to steer with in the chunk. 34 is a lot stiffer and way more fun to bomb thru the chunk on south mtn. Glad I made the switch!

    I put a X-fusion Slant on my 5.7c. The thing destroys my Fox Float .. Night and day better.
