    Love the old school KNAC sticker on your toolbox... Not to mention the Social D and Maui & Sons stickers on there as well. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, they are all the real deal. I grew up in SoCal in the 80's. I have some KMET and KLOS rainbow stickers as well.

    My Epic got a set of 620mm carbon bars today. Need to try them out tomorrow and see if they sharpen up the steering a bit.

    Went tubeless and dropped almost 5lbs of weight. Wheels now feel much lighter and I am happy.

    Nice upgrade, I think you're going to like those! I just did the same to replace my Elixir R's.

    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.
