    Shimano does not make bad products...

    however, to many cyclists, imho, shimano to a certain degree represents the man, big business in the bike industry, just like microsoft does in the computer industry. As I said though, they continue to pump out products which function excellently, so I have no problem with them, but I also get that itchy "I"m supporting the biggest corporate giant in cycling" guilt when I buy their products, which is why my singlespeed will not have any on it. No offense to shimano affecianado's, cuz like I said, their products are great, and currently there are some on my gearie.

    Shouldn't be too long, but it is

    Phil Wood, Hubs and Bottom bracket
    Hope, brakes
    Syncros, stem
    King, head set
    Salsa, handlebar
    Bontrager, tires
    Sram, chain
    Shimano, pedals
    White Industries, freewheel and cranks
    Mavic, rims
    DT Swiss spokes
    Easton seatpost
    Works for me, and I almost never have to think about it. The frame is a Surly KM, and all together I would guess she is around 25-27 pounds. The more I think about it, the more parts come to mind.

    My other bike, that a friend is testing is
    Shimano, brakes, bottom bracket, cranks (old XTR) pedals
    Phil hubs
    Alex rims
    DT Swiss hubs
    Easton handle bars
    Tompson stem
    Race Face seat post
    Salsa ring
    ACS freewheel
    Bontrager tires
    King headset
    Sram chain
    also a KM and also pretty much ride and forget
    Both bikes have Goodridge brake hose, which is really nice and Selle Italia Storkia saddles, also really nice. Some nice bikes posted, Ed

    I'm not finished yet, but here goes...

    Surly (frame, fork)
    Thomson (stem, seatpost)
    King (headset)
    Azonic (bars)
    WTB (saddle)
    Time (pedals)
    Oury (grips)
    Ritchey (wheels)
    Gusset (rear cog)
    SRAM (chain)

    Still haven't bought...

    Brakes & Levers (probably going with avid)
    Crankset (still haven't decided)

    It's killing me having the frame built up, but not being able to ride. Hopefully I'll be finished by the end of June.

    calling me?

    It has been over two years since I last touched my bike, but I'm back! Here's an example of a rookie setup:

    Specialized (frame, post, seat)
    Rockshox (pogo stick)
    Total Air (inside the pogo stick)
    Avid (levers & frt brake)
    Shimano (cranks, BB)
    SRAM (chain)
    Koski (bar)
    Sun-Ringle (ZuZu pedals...my favorite part!)
    Hutchinson (tires)
    Generic/unknown (the rest..., including black electric tape & "Single Speed Fever" sticker)

    So...about 9-10 brands.

    None ... my bike won't hold still long enough for me to put a branding iron to it. Its a shame too cause the Barbie Camp brand woulda looked really cool.
