    I will after I am able to utilize everything this bike has to offer,
    but that is unfortunatly going to take a while till I can do that.

    Unless you give me the necessary funds, of course.

    The latest i have done is leaving my rear wheel to my LBS for replacement of the HiLo 142+ Hub (Joytech) warranty, bad noise.

    Now when i got my wheel back, i notice that they have installed a Sram X9 135mm hub

    Now i have to return it so they can upgrade it to 142mm.

    Bummer, thank god its winter.

    Winter maintenance is just about done. Starting from the bottom:
    - New tires front & back, Butcher SX
    - Rebuilt the rear Hi Lo hub with new ceramic sealed cartridge bearings
    - New bottom bracket
    - New chain and shiny red chain ring bolts
    - Replaced the Elixir R brakes with a set of '12 Code R's and 200mm HS1 rotors front and back
    - Replaced the Domain RC with a '11 66 RC3 EVO
    - Replaced the X5 shifters with a pair of X9's with matchmaker clamps
    - Added a Reverb seat post
    - Finally got the suspension set with a rear 600lbs spring and the 66 got a heavy spring (I'm running minimal air pressure), new oil seals and fresh oil.
    - New seat post clamp

    Last thing to do is shorten up the Reverb hose and rebleed the brakes once my new pads show up in the mail.

    Nokian Gazza Extreme 294 Studded Tires. Broke them in on a road ride then into the woods. Conditions were too soft and slushy for the most part, but on the ice, they held really well.

    Just bought a 13 SJ FSR Comp Evo. New grips, Answer Bars, Pedals. Anyone have an opinion on the Roval Traverse wheelset that comes stock with this bike? I was thinking about a new wheel set. Crank Bros has a special going on their Iodine 3 wheelsets ($600), have they fixed the hub issues they were having with these?

    I'm stoked about finally getting a dropper seat post on my stumpy. Ordered a 100mm Spec Command Blacklite. It's supposed to be delivered to the shop today.

    Bought another one!

    Wife and I now have matching Elite 29ers. I had originally set mine up to be more of a do-all woods and path bike but I'm going to move it closer to its mountain roots. Managed to locate a pair of remote lockout kits for their Recon forks but down the road I'm thinking about upgrading the entire suspension. What says everyone about the Reba RL and the Monarch XX shock?

    Probably going to fit some sort of dropper seatposts and when we wear out the brakes and cranks I'll look into changing those out too.

    X-Fusion Slide 29 RL2R on my 2011 Epic Expert. No more Brain (or QRs) for me! I see where Brain forks could work, but that's just not where I ride and race. This thing feels better than my last Fox at half the price. It's shown at 120 mm, which is cool for winter fun riding. I haven't decided if I'll drop it down to 100 mm for race season yet. Been on it about two months now; it makes the bike feel so much smoother.

    While I haven't ridden with them past the parking lot "bed in" process... The power is insane and they keep Avid's great modulation. Just what I wanted... A lot of other companies brakes with this power have the "on/off" feel (aka shimano saints.) Almost went with Hopes, but couldn't justify the extra cost.

    Got myself an Avid bleed kit and bled my 2012 Stumpjumper Evo. First try was not great, but then I got the hang of it and I ended up with a far better result than my LBS ever did.
