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

    Picked up some Salsa Flip-Off Skewers to replace the standard Specialized skewers that haven't felt right since a muddy race in April. After my most recent ride, the skewer on the front wheel was so loose I could turn it while closed. Freaked me out a bit so I thought I'd throw on somethin fancy:

    In Red for my Silver 07 Epic Comp



    What's your latest change/upgrade?

    Put a brand new pair of Shimano PD-MX 30 pedals on my Crosstrail. Did that two days ago on Tuesday. Three hours later I was riding close to the curb to stay out of traffic, and scraped a pedal against the curb. Bummer! Aluminum sure is soft. Now I've got a nice, shiny bevel in the pedal where an edge used to be. Cut a nickel in half, and that's about the size of the damage. No big deal, but that first ding in something brand new is always painful.

    I have some Time XS Carbon pedals on the way from Pricepoint.
    Mountain biking is not about how fast you go, it's about how many new friends you have at the bar after the ride.

    i recently realized other than rebound knobs on the fork and shock, i didn't have any red on my silver '06 enduro expert.
    i pulled my head out and put some red chainring bolts on.
    much faster now

    I recently bought a new wheelset. My old rear hub finally exploded on me so instead of buying a new one, I bought a new wheelset. Mavic Crossmax SX!

    Picked up a well used 99 Rockhopper last sunday, added parts bin pedals and grips last night, getting new tires and tubes tonight. My first MTB, and its a lot of fun to ride (coming from road bikes).

    Next on the list is a new bar/stem combo and ride the crap out of it...

    SPD M520s

    My most recent upgrade on my Hardrock Pro Disc is my new set of pedals-M520s, also my first clipless pedals, so it is going to take some getting used to them (just arrived and installed this morning!). I also have a set of very slightly used Panaracer Rampage 2.35s that will be going on in the near future for our trip to Snowshoe!

    I had raptors on my hardtail and really liked them. They rolled fast and had excellent traction. The only thing I didn't like about them was how soft the sidewalls were - even at 40psi I could feel them compressing under heavy loads (like fast corners). Once you get used to the feeling though, it's not a big deal and I never felt like they were out of control.

    Just ordered a new set of Avid SD7s to replace the worn out brakes on the bike. Might find a SS conversion for the old girl too...

    I love it. For a single pivot, it performs just as good as my '04 Enduro did. I notice no pedal BOB or feedback of any kind. No brake-jack issues. No suspension lock up under heavy braking.

    I loved my '04 Enduro Expert and referred to it as "Baby". Over the 2 1/2 years I had it, I upgraded everything but the suspension. It had custom wheels, XT everything, Thomson post and stem. There really wasn't anything I could upgrade. I got a good deal on the 575--$1000 for the frame and an '06 TALAS, both in near new condition--and couldn't resist. I swapped my Enduro's wheels and Thomson parts over and went SRAM X0 for the 575's drivetrain.

    The 575 had more travel, a slacker HA (which was a big thing for me) and a higher BB (an even bigger thing for me). It made my Enduro obsolete (in my opinion) so I sold the Enduro frame and fork and kept the other parts (most of which are going on my SS project).

    I liked my Enduro and it was a good bike. I just like the 575 a little bit more.

    May was the month of upgrades for me:
    RP23 shock
    XT crankset
    RaceFace bashring
    Salsa singlespeed ring up front

    The seatpost is next (mine is squeaking like an old door) but that will have to wait. The wife allows me to feed my habit, but the seatpost on top of everything else I purchased would be pushing it too far

    The grips themselves are ODI Rogue Lockons and they have blue lock on clamps:

    But the handlebar plugs are Hope Grip Doctors:

    All in all the combo makes a nice, clean handlebar set up, in my opinion
