    That sounds terrifying. How did you do that?

    I posted this elsewhere but I was "Just Riding Along" down a rocky steep pitch when all the sudden I heard a bang and my bars started wandering around as I very gingerly decelerated from 15 mph. Fortunately the faceplate parts still held it on or I would have likely bought my dentist a new Yeti.

    I bought the bike used 3 years ago and never touched the stem faceplate bolts so my guess is that they were over tightened a long time ago and finally fatigued enough to break? I had crashed the ride prior but had about 15 miles between the crash and when it broke and saw no signs of impact damage on the faceplate.

    Whew! Made out ok on that. Recently bought a deity copperhead stem. I like the 5mm fixing bolts. Not many companies use 5mm. My old syntace did and i missed that. Dont really have to over tourque the bar fixing bolts but i'll generally put a bit extra on the steerer clamping bolts and , of course, stronger bolts

    Congrats on using up one of your 9 lives, that's terrifying. And a good FYI that everybody should have a 5nm torque wrench if you're going to work on your bike ESPECIALLY if you have anything carbon you're torquing.

    I noticed a large crack in the back of my Giro Atlas from where i duno SO it was time to look for a new helmet which is daunting if you got a big fucking head with corners cuz nothing fits BUT the LBS had an XL Bell Sixxer which fit well and looks smart so cha ching !

    Four bucket Xt's have been a game changer. Rode my old single buckets last night on another bike and can't believe the difference. The web site says 15% increase in stopping power. It was a lot more for me. Best bike investment in recent memory.

    John_B, that is insane. Glad you're ok. More reasons to go with Deity, I guess. Might wanna check out the Copperhead. Same price range as Turbine, super stiff and burly. 5mm hardware. Lots of pretty machining so it's not TOO heavy.

    So a month ago I tore apart the perpetually creaking headset on my '16 Stumpy and realized the integrated bearing cups were toast from too many hard licks. I could no longer keep the bearings from rocking so she was retired.

    I picked up this '17 Scout frame off PB and just finished building it this morning. It's a mashup of parts and was a blast to assemble. Pressed in all new bearings first then put it together.

    -Rockshox revelation 150mm fork
    -Cane creek Db coil shock
    -Shimano XT 2 pot brakes with icetech rotors
    -Roval wheels and hubs
    -Sram 11x42 10 speed paired to Raceface 32 tooth on Atlas 30mm cranks
    -Fox transfer 125mm dropper with PNW components loam lever
    -Bars are stock carbon takeoffs from Kopi_red's Pivot 429 trail. Click image for larger version.

    That's cool. So you can just press bearings in with one of those ratcheting clamps and a cloth to prevent damage? That's awesome.

    Same bike as Ms Boissal expect her's is dark grey, this one was a MyO custom paint that was languishing in a shop in Cali. I had to rescue it.

    Nononononono. That was to hold the part in place. I used all thread and washers to press the bearings in.

    Like pet rescue, but way more expensive.

    It’s stupid easy to sell used bikes in Aspen right now. Just lock them in the downtown core with a for sale sign and they’ll be gone 24hrs.


    Just replaced the Hal-e with a Rocky Mt. Growler.

    HA! Great analogy, although my last canine probably cost as much as this bike in the end...

    My latest adventure in bicycle consumerism. Impulse bought a black friday preorder Nimble Nine and got excited to build a proper hardtail. Couldn't resist at $600+$50 shipping, with headset, seatclamp, and sliding dropouts. Love supporting a local(ish) legacy bike company. Frames were supposed to ship in late April but everything was severely delayed due to COVID, ended up getting it in early July. In the meantime I went a little overboard on blingy parts. Decided from the beginning there would be no plastic on this bike though.

    Frame Arrives, much excite!

    Dentist wheels. Spank 350 rims on Onyx legacy hubs with DT Aerocomp spokes and brass nipples built up by Krispy at Go-Ride. Still taking care of me after all these years, thanks Buddy! Fluorescent Yellow Powder Coat because FLUORESCENT YELLOW POWDER COAT!

    All built up! XO Eagle drivetrain, shifter and derailleur courtesy of Rideit. Rotor Capic cranks with their threaded BB, 30mm alloy axle, and 30t round chainring. Their BB spacer kit looks clean and takes the guesswork out of assembly.
    The Rotor North America gang in Salt Lake are awesome, highly recommend hitting them up. Rebuilt the OneUp V1 170mm dropper from my fat bike, works flawlessly. New Code RSC brakes with TRP rotors 203fr/180rr. A bit of a challenge with the IS (parallel) 160 rear brake brake mount but got it dialed. Finished off with SQ Labs 612 Active Saddle (I'll never ride another saddle again), ESI Chunky grips and Time Speciale 8 pedals.

    Rides so nice, so fast on rolling terrain and climbs, quite capable on the down. I can feel the vertical compliance built in to the rear end via the bowed seatstays. The silence and engagement of the Onyx hubs is dreamy. It's getting more trail time than my Firebird.
