    My new Renthal Fatbar Lite handle bar. 740mm long, 20mm rise. My old Syncros was about 640mm long.

    Yeah, It's about the only time I get to ride with my third shift job. :/

    I tried these new pedals recently because I wanted more grip. Shimano MX80 pedals, but I didn't like it that much. Grip is good, however, it creaks after just 2 rides... DSC_1527_1.jpg DSC_1528_1.jpg DSC_1533_1.jpg DSC_1534_1.jpg

    My old shifter cable housing is in pretty bad shape. Got these shifter cable set for a good deal, and has very decent seal to prevent dirt. I forgot to take pictures with the new set installed. :wall:

    This is the result of one of the seal used. Should have replaced with these cables long time ago...

    I built a new rear wheelset using Stan's ZTR Crest 26", DT Swiss Competition spokes, and DT Swiss 350 hub.

    I got the rim for dirt cheap from a warehouse sale few years ago. Finally gotten some out of date non-Boost hubs for cheap. Going old skool I guess. :think: It's a fun weekend project.

    So when are you upgrading to Deore XT 12 speed? :wicked:

    LOL! No plans. I'm happy with my XT 11 speed. Additional gear and weight that I don't need. :p

    Just done some more wheel truing over the weekend, should be ready soon, I hope! :haha: I need to get some tyre sealant for tubeless setup.
