    Got this a couple of weeks ago. My other half was a little incredulous that anyone could possibly need 3 bikes in the garage. Am I crazy? You gotta have a backup right?

    Seriously, I have issues. I can't pass up a lonely old bike in need of a home and love. And I can't post just one photo of, Pixie, my new model.

    REI liked you last year, but hates you this year.

    Someone is living on Ramen Noodles cuz of you.

    I have to admit, I added some $ to the economy. Hopefully it will prevent me from adding to the medical economy.

    Your reaction was the reaction I was looking for. I want it to OFFEND people, and make grown men feel insecure about themselves when they see my bike.

    Three questions:
    1. If no one notices, do you remind them of how edgy your steed is?
    2. Do you enjoy riding by yourself?
    3. Why do Surly owners constantly feel the need to justify their choice of frame?

    Seriously, it's like a broken record.

    The tyres are cool at any rate.

    I'm building up a Soma Double Cross and my Shimano 105 group came today. Thanks a bunch to Main Street Bikes in Kentucky for giving me an awesome deal on a demo'd kit ($350) and shipping it next day. I'll post the frame and fork once they arrive.

    I have seven . . .

    Two mtb, three road bikes, beach cruiser, and a spin bike (stationary trainer), two sets of wheels for each road bike.

    Walked into the LBS Sunday to get a new cassette for the mtb, new chain, came out with both and a new Trek 3700.

    This is an online product photo:



    Discussion is in the blog link with my signature.

    Other recent purchases were two 700 x 23 road bike tires, Bontrager clipless road shoes, and XCT clipless pedals for both road bikes. Those solved the knee pain issues riding strapped in w/ cleats.

    After six years the stock Manitou Axel on my GF Marlin gave up the ghost. The LBS is going to cut the steerer tube to the right length and install the star nut.
    This is my first nicer(r) fork. Now I'm going to have to learn to actually adjust it.

    My latest purchase is everything on this frame/fork with the exception of the front brake calipers, the water bottle cage and pedals. Old Schwinn World Sport frame I picked up and set it up as a 46x16 SS to use for commuting and touring.

    Here is my latest bike purchase, well not really I has since bought 2 new Blackburn Camber Carbon cages and a Topeak Aero Seat bag for it but those aren't as exciting.
    It does have Egg Beaters on there, which I stole from my 29'er.

    Stuff for the "other" bike.

    Got this for $15. Looking to try a shorter stem and a lower bar position.



    New pedals, Not super light, but lighter than my current pedals and still have a little bit of platform.



    New gloves.

    Chainlove.com had those Blackburn pumps for $6.99 a couple weeks ago. I picked up two of them.

    DOH!
    I wish I had seen them then. I check chainlove quite a bit, but apparently I need to check it more often.

    I needed the pump for the ride. I got a flat the last time I went out and didn't want to keep using the CO2 cartridges and I didn't want to ride without the ability to change a flat.

    Frame is a 2010 anniversary model, which I've had for a year now so I added some new Chris King red hubs to go with the rest of the red bling.

    Well I guess I'm just an old school kinda guy. Easy to adjust, good braking power, no bleeding issues, and I can replace the cable if it would break on long remote rides.
    I've been on several rides over the years with guys running hydraulics and their brakes work great until we go over a pass at 12,000' and their brakes are gone till we get lower. I know it's an adjustment/bleed problem, but they can't get it fixed and don't find out till we hit the high country, which sucks.

    Lefty Max 140mm SPV fork reduced for 29er use. Installed with a Project321 adapter, Canondale SL hub and DT Swiss X470 hoop.

    Still working on ironing out some bugs, tho. The SPV valve is stuck open (not really a bad thing, but bobs like crazy) and the front wheel I built it a total noodle. I'm reworking the wheel with brass nipples so I can up the tension... cheap fix. The real fix is probably going to be a stiffer hoop.

    Other than that, its super plush, and super fast to react to the trail. I love it, although it really makes me want to invest in a newer Lefty, really.

    Just bought a new Trek Fuel EX 5 WSD for the lady. I also ordered the new CBs Iodine 3 (black/gold) wheel set and Iodine 11 low riser bars (740mm) for my Fuel EX 9.7. I've been doing my fair share of spending with REI, my LBS, all of Moab's LBSs, Jenson USA, Performance, Price Point, Ebay and many others for years now. Too bad our economy is solely based on people spending, especially when we don't produce a lot of what we buy here in the States. Just remember to keep saving and investing, and not just spending it all.

    My frame is new, because of a warrantee replacement, but I did recently puchase the MRP chain guide, the red E.13 32 tooth chainring, and the cane creek 40 zero stack headset that the new frame needed.

    Helidave I like the cartoonified picture of the frame.

    Bailey44,my recently purchased a MRP guide needed to be rotating more forward on the crank after a little bit of riding. It is a bit of a PIA to adjust it properly cause you can't totally line it up correctly 'cause your crank is not on the bike. Much better with it rotated forward though.

    I just bought this used and it is my first MTB, an FSR Pro Disk. It's pretty old as a 2004, but has good components from what I'm told. I am loving it so far and looks pratically new...

    Just finished this build yesterday. Umm, the gold cables have to go but that's what I had laying around. The bike came in at 23.4 lbs and feels pretty good but a little cramped. I can fix that.

    Just a Wal-Goose

    But, I was out on the trail having fun. It was worth it for the trying the size. Turns out I am not really a big fan of 29ers.

    Just placed an order for a Giro Xar. I was planning to buy a cheap helmet. When I tried them on I thought I could live with the lack of comfort. Then I tried the more expensive Xar and thought #@$! ... now I have to get this one because it was much more comfy. I didn't dare try on the more expensive helmets hehe

    latest bike purchase(s)

    I must admit I have been on a bit of a shopping spree over the past couple months.

    Last week I bought a set of Q-rings for my road bike...love them!

    I bought a new Dakine AMP pack over the weekend.
    2 months ago I bought New Avid Elixr CR brakes.

    And over the weekend this arrived:

    Picked up a set of Kenda Slant Six tires to lighten up the bike a tad for cross country night rides. They feel like rockets compared to the Mountain King 2.4 and Trail King 2.2 or 2.4 I usually run.

    Also picked up a set of cranks. Too good of a deal to pass up. Have not installed them yet.

    For a 1st MTB this is awesome. Great choice.
    I wish I had bought something even close to that for my first bike.
    My brother just got the same one for his first.

    I'm on my 2nd & made a BIG jump with my upgrade.
    I got this abouth 3 weeks ago. It's used but new to me. My new Ferrari of the trails.

I know it's an adjustment/bleed problem, but they can't get it fixed and don't find out till we hit the high country, which sucks.

    Aaah, sure, didn't figure that out! I guess the heating is also quite an issue on loong descents, with hydraulic brakes - now and then i feel my brakes changing responsiveness due to the oil heating up!

    I've been using Crank Bros since 2005....I got sick of breaking them constantly. Upgraded to Time ATAC. No rides on them yet but they feel much more solid just pedaling around.

    Nice, I've been thinking about switching to these when my current pedals go. Looks like the bottom of your crank arm has seen better days....ouch. You must have some rocky terrain where you are at. I know we have plenty of it here in TX.

    Ah yes,, my infamous avatar. It was a project in itself since it is a Photoshop image that I did. I purposely kept it small so the model can't be identified to avoid any copyright issues. Also, that way I did no have to be really precise when I cut and pasted the pictures over my bike. I could however do a Photoshop of my wife's greats legs with my bike if you like.

    Purchased a cheapo rim and spokes for my fixie to build up a vintage track hub that I had laying around. My first complete wheel build. I've laced many wheels before and trued numerous (I work at a lbs) but this is my first complete build. Pretty good, good tension, especially for doing it at home without shop tools. Dish is off about 1 or 2mm...not a big deal for a fixie There are a couple vertical hops (small ones) that I'm going to try to finish truing out on my next off day from work. They aren't bad though. I'm pretty proud of myself on this one.





    *edit* I even thought I'd be cool and make my key spoke silver and throw a red nip on it

    Here's mine from today and this weekend.
    Unfortunately (for my wife and wallet) I have a Pearl Izumi store nun-too-far from my house so I picked up a pair of Pi X-Alps Drifts this weekend.


    Then went to my LBS and was going to pick up a pair of PD-M520 pedals to go with the shoe when their mechanic came up to me and was like, dude you want these!!!

    Handed me a pair of new PD-M530s! Apparently, same exact mechanism as the 520 but has a lower grade outter body that is the exact same mold for the XTRs. Figure for only $10 more I might as well give them a try. First clipless so should be interesting.

    Got this on craigslist... cheap. It looked like dooty...



    A little effort and some parts and it looks like this...



    Only road bike I'm interested in at this point... gives me something to ride when I'm not actually "riding".
    EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY... FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.

    It's a cheap-o from Commercial Bargains --
    http://www.commercialbargains.com/pr...air-stand.aspx.

    List price on the website is $89, but they have it on eBay, too, with an opening bid of $72 w/ free shipping. I was the only bidder. Here's another one they've got up there, with 14 minutes left:
