    Command post rocks ! I switched the remote for the KS remote, the original one gets crappy after a while. The KS is better, Spech could have done better on the remote......

    I got a deal on a Fox float fit terralogic 2012 and got rid of the Reba. The new fork is a dream.

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.

    Are you serious about that it feels better then your Fox ? I can agree on the pricing, but ...

    Realized from my last crash.... I broke (finally) a pair of Crank Bros Candy 2


    on the right, the wing: got push out and wedged into the aluminum cage.

    the owner of the LBS loathes Crank Bros, so I picked up 2 pairs of SHimano PD-M520's (one for the MTB & one for the cross bike)

    ALso broken was the seat post. SO I picked up a Origin-8 Pro Fit Alloy post. Needs a new saddle also (gonna get another Romin saddle... as the road bike has one)

    Installed a new frame. Well the LBS installed a new frame...
    The replacement frame finally made it through Customs

    Before


    The frame


    After



    It's a 2013 frame. I would like to powdercoat or replace the front fork so it matches, but that won't happen for a while.

    What's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-xtr2.jpgWhat's The Latest Thing You've Done To Your Specialized Bike?-xtr1a.jpgAdded a new XTR FD M980, very happy with the way it works. Much stiffer and sits lower, needed a new cable due to the stock one being shorter. I was not happy with the stock Deore one that was on it.

    I turned my Reba RL into a Reba XX this week, the on the fly lockout is amazingly more efficient...

    Also got rid of that terrible stock saddle and installed a Selle Italia Sli XC flow saddle, in red to match of course!

    My 2012 Stump Jumper Comp 29 HT PICK UP ON 07-26-2013

    Well it was time for an upgrade this 1999 Rock Hopper gave me year's of fun but is a bit to heavy on the trail for me.
     photo null_zps6b56ebc9.jpg

    So on July 26 th I went to my LBS and picked up a 2012 Stump Jumper Comp 29 HT couldn't pass up at $1430.30 out the door.

    First thing I did was install a set of Shimano M520 SPD Pedal's.
    Then I went tubeless/SNT Tape/ valve's and sealant.
    Installed two Elite Water Bottle Holder's with Polar Bear Water bottle's (24 oz. ea.)
    Installed a under the seat tool bag for tool's and inner tube just in case.
    Installed a Spin Doctor mini tire pump.
    Changed the Front S-Work's Renegade 29" x 1.95 to a Captain Control 29" x 2.2 so now it's set up with the Captain Front and the Renegade Control 29" x 1.95 rear.
    Next I installed a Set of ESI Chunky Red grip's.
    Just got done installing a Specialized 27.2 x 350 mm Carbon Seat Post.
    Looking at either Easton Carbon Bar's or Thompson flat around 780 mm leaning toward's the Thompson's in two week's.
    I'm waiting until next month to order my Industry Nine Torch Hub's /Either L.B Carbon Hoop's or Roval carbon waiting on price of Roval hoop's/ and still need to figure out which DT Comp Spoke's I need.
    It sit's at 21.5 pound's right now was 25 when I brought it home looking to get below 21 pound's.
    I've lost weight since buying and riding it from 210 to 184 as of now.
    I've got around $1,650 invested in the bike now so once I get my rim's and bar's I should be around $1,900 not bad for a modified SJ Comp 29 HT.
