  • in reply to: Front & Rear Tire suggestions #209788

    I am definetly enjoying the Nobby Nic’s that came stock on my new bike….. a even burlier tire is the Magic Mary….

    Some of the new bike racks these days have wires integrated into them to keep your bike safe. It’s pretty cool ’cause it gives you the opportunity to use your truck…… but that sort of defeats the purpose of the truck…. You could always keep some wire in your truck and lock your bikes to the truck….

    If you added a link of your bike we could help you a bit more!

  • in reply to: 2×10- 1x conversion #208986

    @Alvin BTW 96BCD was the WRONG chainring. Only Shimano XT and XTR cranks work with 96bcd, Deore and I imagine SLX use 104bcd….. Just so you know from now on!

  • in reply to: Full face helmets? #208964

    100% aircraft has great ventilation which you might enjoy if you’r are planning on wearing it for regular rides as well. The Fly Werx also get’s similar comments.

    If you are planning on wearing a full face for trail riding as well why don’t you get the Giro Switchblade? Meets all the downhill standards and you will probably enjoy not having a covered chin when you are trail riding…. plus if the descents are gnarly you can put on the chin protector…

    The XT chainring was the wrong size for my cranks, 96 XT and my cranks are 104 (bcd) so ended up buying one from the shop… Also installed the dropper, the instructions we HORRIBLE but it was fairly straight forward..

  • in reply to: Upgrades and Rides today? #208945

    I started my swap yesterday, got a XT NW to go 1x with. Thing is that my cranks th Deore Hollowtech II require a special tool to take them off. So I have to take the bike to the shop to get them to take the cranks off for me, I’ll get them to put on the Chainring as well… then I’ll put on the chain when I get home. Was quite the headache actually taking the FD off….! ย  ๐Ÿ™

  • in reply to: Shuttle Service in Santa Cruz #208905

    Yeah that’s true…! WIsh there was a way to get the best of both worlds….! ย ๐Ÿ™‚ ย  Would really like a shuttle but at the same time cluttered trails aren’t very desirable.

  • in reply to: anyone use a dropper post and DI2? #208902

    The Fox transfer is external and it is probably much better than the DOSS but I wouldn’t know, there are tons and tons of externally routed droppers our there these days….

  • in reply to: Help!!!! Can't get my cranks off…….! #208748


    The link didn’t work again! I added it and changed the name to “bike” but it didn’t make it a link…. weird not really sure what’s up with that…..

  • in reply to: Upgrades and Rides today? #208720

    @maxwell actually @triton189 was talking about a wheelset, Sunringles….. do you find them do be good quality with an affordable price??

  • in reply to: GHOST mountain bikes? #208691

    would be cool to be part of their race team, โ€œghost ridersโ€ ????

    hahahahahaha ๐Ÿ˜› ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

    You can always buy a dropper yourself… this will allow you to get the one you want…. I’d say get the Ghost..!


  • in reply to: The pluses of 29er over 27.5 #208689

    Well, I decided to go with the Fuji Reveal 1.1 a 27.5 trail bike…. loving super stoked and doing some things to help make it the ultimate bike for me… getting a dropper, switching to 1X11 and in the future hoping to get a new wheelset, and switch brake calipers to SLX….! Cheers! ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

  • in reply to: Its been a while #208679

    Cool!! I’m sure you’ll be stoked and love your new steed…..! ย  Happy trails! ย  ๐Ÿ˜€
