Only got to ride it for 6 months till it was stolen. Replaced with a regular 82 Motomag for the next 5 years, but the Motomag was not the same...it was sweet, but it wasn't Super!!

    Planning on getting a new BMX later on this summer done in the same colorway...raw with blue accents. No Tuff 2's though. Those damned things were heavy!!

    Did someone here say chrome and blue?

    This bike gets more complements than all my others put together. Maybe when I retape, I'll go with blue and get a blue saddle, like on one of my other bikes.

    Too tight to fit anything wider than probably 28mm. It's Reynolds 631 steel. When I get my Gunnar together, it should replace this bike but I'm not sure I can let go of it. When I gave my son his Lemond for Christmas, he asked me how much it would cost to have chromed.

    That photo of the white fixed gear is old, but here is the saddle in the photo. It is currently on my 26er SS. Thought you might find it interesting (?)

    Had to put it on right away because of the space leftover from removing my dropper remote(getting a carbon SAVE post for my Slate). Rode it to the store and back and it was quite comfortable. Awaiting a new saddle and tires as well. Put my G Ones back on the Slate but I got a sidewall cut on the back, so new Maxxis Rambler TR tires will be going on instead.

    Ok man, we are shopping the same stuff.

    Ramblers going on my MMD on the tubeless wheels above..40c F 38/R

    The tape is going on the new Cowchippers, currently no time to do all this, so I just dropped it off at the shop. Can't wait!

    Thanks! The 2019 model is 200 grams lighter than the 2018 model but rides just as well and soaks up everything.

    I also just put a 2019 Rockshox SID World Cup fork on my spare hardtail. This is 200 grams heavier than the 2018 model but rides so much better.

    Somehow this snowballed into a shopping spree for the mtb, and now there's an entire 11sp drivetrain with extra chains and missing links, plus an XD driver and endcap for my hub, on the way

    What you made you go 165? Sometimes I think shorter cranks might be better for my knees....

    I'm just brushing 5'7" on a good day, and that's with a fairly long torso for my height, meaning I've got stubby limbs.
    I use 170s for SS on the mtb, but switch to 165s when geared, 'cause it's more comfortable when spinning lower gears. Also have some pedal extender things otw for the road cranks, so I can have similar Q factor and use the same kind of pedals on my "training bike" as when trail riding. Short spindle pedals + road cranks don't feel right to me, plus have my heels clipping the chainstays...

    fyi those brakes are many years old. That style is from pre 2011 IIRC. So those arent "new". For about $10 more you could get the actual latest versions.

    OneUp 50 tooth ring and Shark Cage

    Just tried out the 50 tooth ring and derailleur "Shark Cage" from OneUp Components this morning on the North Shore. This is on my 2017 Fuel EX 9.8. Quite a while back I switched the 2x11 that it came with to a 1x, with 32 teeth on the front and 47 on the biggest ring for the back. I know for a lot of people that would be more than enough for climbing, but I really wanted 50 on the back of the Fuel EX like I have on the Trek Slash I ride.

    While most of the ride didn't require that many teeth on the back, there were a couple of spots where my osteoarthritic knees really appreciated it. I also switched the front to a 30 tooth and I really like the set-up! Thanks to my buddy Carl who installed the stuff for me!

    Bikesdirect Motobecane Fantom Cross Comp 2019

    Pretty alright for the price, aluminum frame with SRAM drive 1x11 cranks and derailleurs, Shimano hydraulic brakes, external BB, put on RaceFace bars, stem, pedals, post. Came with a carbon fork. WTB STp I19 wheels with WTB Riddler 700x45c tires. Really fun bike to ride. Fast on the road, and pretty fun on singletrack.

    Bikesdirect, whatever you may think, is pretty okay. Cheers!

    When I put the 2019 Fox 36 on my Slash I didn't want to lose the overall stealth appearance of the bike (the stock Lyrik had black markings), and the orange stuck out like a sore thumb, so I went with Slik graphics to maintain the stealth look. I like it more than the orange, but not sure if I'm satisfied with the look overall. From a distance it looks okay...

    NEW BIKE DAY! Picked up a 2019 23Ē Trek Fuel EX8. Only got a few minutes on it before dark riding around the yard. Definitely more comfy than my Rockhopper even though itís a 2XL as well. Canít wait to get it on a trail this weekend!

    First dose of Ti for the hybrid "exercise" bike: some pedal extenders so I can use the same pedal as on my mtb, and have similar Q factor.

    I actually enjoy cutting my grass with a push mower, even gave away my old riding mower awhile back, but it's time consuming. The unusual amount of wet weather these past couple of summers has also resulted in not getting to pick and choose when the yard work gets done, with the grass(and weeds!) being too much for the push mower by the time it's able to be cut. It's really been putting serious constraints on what free time I have that coincides with good weather, so this morning I made my heaviest and most expensive bike-related purchase to date:

    This new model is supposed to have better low light capabilities. Since I review bike lights frequently and had enough points at Performance that no money exchanged hands it seemed like a good purchase for me. Now I just have to learn how to use it.

    Dang right! I'm about to go do two laps of my local 5 mile loop as soon as a load of clothes comes out of the wash.
    Over an hour late heading out after to having to fix some issues with the new mower(factory or assembly guy, whichever-not a great first impression, either way), but I'll still be finished in about the same overall time I'd normally *just* get the yard done with the push mower. Should have gotten another riding mower last year!!!

    165mm cranks because I'm tired of pedal strikes. Hopefully 28 years of muscle memory won't cause issues.

    I've been using 175mm for the last 28 years.
    My new Stache has the lowest BB that I've ever had. It is about a 1/2" lower than my previous bike. Unfortunately there are several trails here that have technical climbs and I keep getting pedal strikes. You can only ratchet so much before losing momentum and coming to a complete stop.

    Ah, okay. Well, I'm curious to see what you think after you try them out for a bit. I'm on 175s on both bikes, but have tempted to try shorter, particularly with my Fuel EX.

    I don't know how I've survived without one of these bad boys. Only had it about 2 weeks but I've already cut in approximately 3 miles of singletrack I've had flagged for quite a while. The loop I've built so far is about 8 miles but will hopefully be up over 15 by the end of summer.

    Mamba pedals and a 2018 Santa Cruz 5010 CC

    Picked up some Mamba One-Sided SPDs and also grabbed a 2018 5010 CC to go with them!

    Post a PIC of your latest purchase [bike related only]-d7fcteo.jpg

    This was a demo bike at a dealer so got it for about 50% off. Condition was pretty good. Some chips here and there but all cosmetic.

    Coming from my 2011 Blur (26") w/ 3x9 XTR this thing is a revelation in capabilities. The 1x12 + larger hoops has me climbing things I just could not climb before and the bike is very stable at speed. Its true what they say, this thing loves to pop off any little bump and get in the air.

    Its also super rigid and when you lock the suspension it has almost no give. Its almost like having a few extra gears from an effort perspective, immediately noticeable. It is also amazing how a roomier cockpit gives you so much more options. My first few big climbs I was almost manualing up the hill (until I would fall over). Then I realized I had enough room to actual slide forward on the seat and lock the front-end down. I'd read about that but my Blur was too small for such shenanigans.

    First ride out (after 3 weeks of no riding) I broke 15 PR's and my high speed on my fitness loop.

    Oh, and the Mamba's are fantastic. Easy clip in and out, great flats on the other side. Much recommended.

    Good times! Riding just got fun again.

    Will post pictures when they arrive but just ordered some XT 8020 four piston brakes for my Trigger to replace the absolutely horrible Magura MT8ís. They are two finger only and zero power. Back to single finger powerful braking!

    I wrote my thoughts and experiences in Walt's thread about his new bike which is what got me thinking about trying the shorter cranks. You can read them here. http://forums.mtbr.com/26-27-5-29-pl...l#post13769005
    All I can say is it is one of the best $100 I have spent.

    Some new pedals for the DH bike, hope I like the concave design. Decided to switch it up from the Crampon Ultimates that are my trail bikes.
