Are you finish on modifying your bike?
My new Renthal Fatbar Lite handle bar. 740mm long, 20mm rise. My old Syncros was about 640mm long.
I need a nice dry hot and dry weekend midnight to get me out. Hope this summer is better then the last 10...
Last year the cops told me to put lights on my bike...
You ride at night too?
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...
Time to go clipless
No money for new shoes... I need to brush up my skills before I go clipless (won't be good enough anyway).
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.
I should order some new tires for my bike.
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.
Still using those pedals?
Sounds like almost a complete overhaul going on...
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 Finally gotten some out of date non-Boost hubs for cheap.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. It's a fun weekend project.
So when are you upgrading to Deore XT 12 speed?
LOL! No plans. I'm happy with my XT 11 speed. Additional gear and weight that I don't need.
Just done some more wheel truing over the weekend, should be ready soon, I hope! I need to get some tyre sealant for tubeless setup.
Thanks to lockdown, I had not been riding in the woods for over 3 months. Recently I bought this for working on my bike.
It allows pedaling using the floor type stand, which is space saving. Looks like Yeti bikes which I can't afford.
Feedback Sports Scorpion Bike Stand
almost looks like this, lol
