    What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?

    I threw on a Salsa seat clamp and some 685mm low rise Easton monkey bars on the stumpjumper fsr comp 29'er.
    I can't wait to trail test it without those beach cruiser style bars. I'm also hoping that the new clamp helps stop the post from creeping down.

    I installed a set of ODI Rougue Lock-on grips. Very secure as they bolt or screw on the inside and outside of the grips.

    On my Stumpy I just swapped my Trail King 2.2s for a Hans Dampf 2.35/nobby nic 2.25. It dropped 200g off my bike, but I did the swap just to see which tires I like better.

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.

    Swap the damper out of the recon and you should be happy. I did my recon with a rockshox argyle motion control damper with low speed compression adjust

    What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?

    Was time for a clean after 2 rounds of racing in flow rollercoaster and stack of dirty rides in between. Plus changed my front 2.2 purgatory to a 2.3 ground control and put the 2.2 on the back instead of the 2.0 captain. Tubeless with these is so clean and easy on my rims.

    A couple of weeks ago I replaced the std 680mm alloy bars with 720mm answer protaper carbon. Steering is much more solid for me now and it does feel smoother with less vibration on very rocky trails where I felt a lot of feedback previously.

    Also changed my stem, og was 90mm but felt a bit long, so I did a few rides and a race with a 50mm hussfelt one I had on my old giant. I did really like the feel but just was a little too tight so I ordered a 70mm answer AM stem and after the first few rides its feeling pretty darn sweet.

    I think it's on a winner.

    I gave it a good handjob.
    Amazing what a couple of rags and brushes can do.

    What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?

    Installed my new (second hand - thanks to SideFX) command post. Went and picked up some new cable, housing and ferrules etc plus a command post seat clamp with cable guide. Took a bit of time to get it all spot on but overall not too difficult a task. Looking forward to a wet test ride tomorrow.

    Started building (sorry for awful photos)What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-73946_4831950717200_1177930513_n.jpgWhat's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-37036_4831952637248_1593839794_n.jpg

    Not the bars, stem or wheels I'll be using, just parts off another bike.

    I've got Transition Revolution 25 wheels on the way, and soon some wide flat bars, and when I decide what I want, some brakes too.

    Sitting spare in the garage I have a 70mm stem, old 3x9 x9 + XT cranks drive chain, and a few other bits.

    Trying to build a decent trail bike without breaking the bank!

    been a while since ive posted my upgrades...
    in december i had new wheels build for my '12 enduro comp.
    red chris king hubs, aerolite spokes, red alu nipples, wtb i23 hoops.

    today i had a new red ano Hawk bottom bracket installed, new red cables/housings,
    formula the one brakes the were "take-offs" that have red ano accents, and alligator serration rotors. although there is some low speed vibration coming from the front, might have to pony up for another ice tech.

    Added a new back wheel to match the front, and switched over to Nobby Nic's, and finally have both tires running tubeless.

    Stan's NoTubes ZTR FlowEX w/ a Hope Pro EVO 2 hub.

    I had trouble getting my old Mountain King 2.2's to seal properly, so I was running with a tube on my front rim since I replaced my fork back in November. The new tires have seated beautifully, and my bathroom scale says the weight of my bike is down to 25.2 (I should go to a bike shop and get it weighed).

    Next up is the drivetrain!

    Reworked my Judy T2 ('98 Ground Control FSR Comp) by throwing in a freshly serviced Judy XC aluminum cartridge and Risse Racing coil springs. No more pogo stick, and it should get me through the season. I plan to upgrade the fork and rear shock for next year and get into some newer technology.

    Oh, far away it looked like it.

    I went to buy one and no one seems to carry the 40t in red.
