    For jimage: updated pics of my BR, xpost TBC forum

    jimage requested that I post pics of my bike with the blackspire stinger installed so here they are.

    Recently added:
    -HB Stroker Trails 203f 180r
    -Gold pivot bolts
    -Blackspire Stinger Chainguide which I had to make a bend in to line up with my chainline and clear my crank arm

    Did you have issues dropping the chain without the Stinger? It just seems kind of redundant otherwise.

    You should throw in some other gold bits. Bolts for the brakes, fork, stem, tensioner. Gold QR and seatpost clamp. Gold nipples.

    Very nice. All I could suggest at this point is a set of gold Hadley's on your next wheelset.

    The chain never came off without the guide, I have it to reduce slap and chain stretch. With the guide I was able to remove a link in the chain and tighten things up a bit.

    euroford, I'm running a 1/8" chain and chainwheel, the chain just ain't gonna come off

    I'm workin on some more gold bits. Don't want to overdo it though. Seatpost clamp, new wheelset with gold hubs and maybe nipples. Want to go gold Hope Pro II SS with WTB laserdisc FR silver spokes with gold nips.

    I would love Hadleys but $$$! And their gold is more of a bronze. If I was going to go Hadley I'd probably just go CK.

    I actually preferred my Hadley to the CK. The CK drags a lot (though I guess that's a testament to the quality of their seals).

    Maybe you should just spray your spokes gold. Heh.

    Actually two pounds. It just dialed in my drivetrain and got it running how I wanted it.

    As far as the strokers go, I love them. They are NOTHING like the 9s I used to own. Great modulation, great lever feel and design, and one finger stops are a piece of cake. I like the way they look but that is just a personal preference I guess.

    Was it a Talas, Float, or VAN? R or RC2? Big differences in all of them as well as how they are set up. When I first started riding with mine I thought it sucked but with some tuning it has become very nice. I've actually got my eye on Kowa forks right now, they are very interesting.

    Yeah man, don't overdue the gold.. people were bugging me to gold out my frame too - good cranks, wheels and other ****... but i think one gold thing you need is.. Now i don't know what they're actually called, but they are the little end caps that go on your cable housing. My old shop in Utah got some for me we threw them on and they look super cool.

    I just have fun with it. FR DH DJ, I don't worry about going lightspeed on DH runs. The 33/16 gearing gets me going fast enough for anything I need to do. It's so nice not having to worry about what gear i'm in.
