    Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.

    OUCH! Harsh words from the guy who's single-handedly dissappointed more fat chicks than Jenny Craig!!!

    Glad to see at least you're riding! I'm down to about 2 hours a week, but I'm making up for the lack of exercise with copious amounts of pizza and ice cream, so life is all good. Plus it's winter now, heck temps are down into the low 90's...

    Good luck in the race, it's tough to block the other riders for 24 hours straight..:-)

    Blue El Salt semi-custom

    Here's my new Salty:

    Frame: 06 El Saltamontes semi-custom 20" frame w/18" seat tube
    Color: Electric Blue
    Options: 5" Rockers, quad bearings, headbadge
    Shock: Fox RP3
    Fork: Fox Talas
    Front Der: XT M761
    Rear Der: SRAM X.O
    Shifters: SRAM Shorty Twist: X.O
    Chain: Shimano 7701
    Cassette: Shimano M960 12-34
    Brakes: Magura Marta SL w/6" rotors
    Cranks: Race Face Deus Black 175mm 44/32/22
    BB: Race Face X-type
    Pedals: Shimano 454
    Headset: Chris King NoThread Black
    Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite hi-rise
    Stem: 110x5 Race Face Deus
    Seat Post: 27.2 Thomson Elite 410mm Black
    Seatpost Clamp: Hope quick release
    Saddle: Terry Fly
    Grips: Lock-on (full size, to be swapped soon)
    Wheelset: WTB Laserdisc lite hubs, Velocity rims
    Skewers: Mavic/Speedcific
    Front Tire: WTB Mutanoraptor Race 2.4
    Rear Tire: WTB Mutanoraptor Race 2.4
    Accesories: Composite bottle cage, Cat-Eye cordless comp., Lizardskin chainstay protector

    Weight: 27.2 lbs

    Could lose a half-pound easily just by swapping out pedals, but love the 545s for how well they work on technical uphills and downhills. Same for the Mutanoraptors; could lose a bit of weight, but these handle so much more securely when the going gets rough than the Panaracer Fire XC 2.1's I used to run.

    Future changes: thinking about a light 4-6" adjustable fork

    This is my 2-geared single-speed, with a 38x16 and 36x18 options. I can switch these without retensioning the chain, although the 2:1 is a bit more slack than the other combo. Gonna go rigid front soon - probably a Kelly steel fork - for winter and racing.

    Would you mind my asking what size ( spindle length ) FSA bottom bracket you are running? I just traded in my Marble Peak FS for an El Saltamontes and have the FSA team carbon crankset, when I tried to use an existing 113 Race Face BB, I had a problem with the small chainring bolts striking the pivot bolt. Thanks in advance.

    I'm using a 113 with a 1mm spacer...

    I'm thinking about new cranks, actually.
