    Wrapped my handlebars with cork tape. As far as first attempts go, it isn't completely terrible and it only took an hour!

    ...Swearing may have been involved!

    I was referring to what type of lubricant.

    Made a bash ring from an old aluminum sign ("Lot 7")! Compared to steel, aluminum lathes like hot butter.

    ...not that my riding style dictates a need for one, mind you. It just makes the empty 104bcd portion that I'm not presently using look more complete. Could almost take another 1/4" off the diameter.

    That whole exchange had me rolling. Both of you are great guys and normally well mannered, I'm thinking a little Romaine was mixed in with one or both of your greens.

    So...what kind of grease was it again?

    LOL, No green for me, but I think some Amber was. As in Whiskey. Gibson's 12 year old Whiskey...


    And I went and looked, I'm running Aeroshell 22 grease in my gun right now. Same grease they use in F16 landing wheel bearings

    Truthfully, I never care what I use for most things. I buy a good quality grease, and forget about it from there. There always different colors, NLG1-2 Moly, etc etc. I use the same on bike/sled/truck/Trans Am. Just the Aeroshell is special for my crankshaft bearings in my sled. And I never pulled the tube out and changed it after sledding season so I've been using my crankshaft grease in my bike, truck, everything this year LOL. I gotta go buy more now.

    Yanked my Race Face bearings out with my bearing puller (yay, I got to use last-years Xmas present!), pried off the dust seals and repacked the bearings for the fatbike. Installed (re-installed actually) a token in my Fox 32 SC fork for the XC bike.

    How funny DJ...

    Sorry for the belated reply. I have used the Aeroshell 5 on BB's and wheel bearings, but much light stuff on the freehubs. Usually freehub specific grease or oils on the freehubs. banditpowdercoat...is your freehub a Shimano?

    So speaking of aviation specific lubricants, I have always liked the thinner red grease...I can't remember what it is, but I think it was a Mobile 28, but I'm not sure if that's correct. It's slightly thicker than Buzzy's Slick Honey.

    Levered on some new fairly fat Kenda Nevagal's (2.35) on my Intense 6.6 along with changing out the bars to some wider carbon Easton Havoc's donated from my '15 Yeti SB5c.
    Got a new shock today from the postman to boot. Can't wait to get this installed on the Yeti and dialed in. Cheers, happy riding!

    I must be blind because what I saw in your third photo was a saw that cut the old rails off to fix the old saddle. Never mind, nice new saddle.

    So finally after a few months received the replacement frame and starting to build up again. Also ordered new flats, narrow wide chainring and some stuff i cant remember anymore, will maybe build some new wheels next week to but first gonna ride my new old bike..

    Just not sure yet if i will go 1x all the way or will install the front derailer and throughframe cables for now...

    What did you do FOR your bike today??

    Moved her from one side of the spare bedroom to the other side. Then vacuumed under where she was then returned her back to her normal spot. She thanked me for not ramming the vacuum cleaner into her shoes by working around them.

    Ordered a $160 set of new shoes for her today, I'll think she'll like them. They're her favorite color... rubber

    Replaced an Avid HS1 rotor with a Shimano XT IceTech one. I would say that I replaced both front and back, but when I wasn't looking my dog decided the bag of bolts might make a good snack.

    Cleaned up the ends of the bar tape (looks better now) and added two more rows of framing screws to my rear winter tire (I think there's something stupid like 700 screws total between the front and back tires!). I don't need to put them on the bike quite yet as winter isn't here. Soon, though!

    I just received new dust wipers and the motion control/air service kits for my RS Reba Team. Bought this fork used and it had been sitting for about 3 years so a rebuild will do it good.

    Finally bought a shock pump and set up my sag and rebound to proper levels. I've had the bike about a year and never messed with any of the suspension settings, so I'm eager to see if that changes my ride at all.

    Brought it up from the basement and cleaned it. Stared at it. Ordered new water bottle cages and a bottle for it because the new ones I just bought aren't what I hoped for. Stared at it. Then I am going to ride it later when it warms up.
    Enjoy the ride...

    I finally finished putting together my fury, with some wheel building help from the Path bike shop in tustin. Great guys. Anyways, installed Saint drivetrain, new chris king/ spank wheelbuild w a 36h mavic up front and hope rotors. Spank 800 handlebar w oury grips, Tubeless minions tire set up, compression dAmper/knob install on the firm spring in my domain, and lastly semenuk's sig pedals to replace my old mallets.


    Now too bad it's about to be winter and the lift parks are all closed

    Yeah, when I finished the bushings I opened up the rear hub to clean and lightly grease and noticed one set of pawls were toast. Wish I had found it last week when it was raining...

    My bad on not taking pics at first. I see that was the original thread request!
    It's funny how I didn't notice anything wrong with the pedaling and freewheeling before I took it apart. Once I did for maintenance purposes, I noticed a small gouge above 1 set of pawls and those pawls were not springing up. I messed with it and cleaned it trying to get it to work but didn't go too far as I have a tendency to make things worse out of frustration... I reassembled hoping I could get a ride in and I did, but now there is a hesitation in engagement intermittently. (Better than nothing) I have a planned ride out of town with my wife tomorrow, which is why I'm leaving it alone. The new part is supposed to be here Thurs. and I will post up a proper post with pics.

    Changed my brake pads. They uh...they were a wee bit worn. Not as bad as I thought they would be, but worn none the less!
