    Would never buy (or eewings either), but these would look awesome on my old Lynskey Pro29 w/ twisted tubes:

    The polished look great, the oil slick ones not as much

    The clear coat is failing on my wife's Evil Calling and she demoed an SB130 to see if she can handle a 29er at 5'2". Cleaned some technical climbs she's never beat before, so it's new bike time. I think we're set on a Revel Rascal, but that new Commencal Tempo caught my eye. Wouldn't kick the new SB140 out of the garage either, but I'm less sold on Yeti.

    5 yrs ago when i bought the Yeti 5.5 they only went to Medium, its interesting that yeti now offer a 29er in small, I figured the short people would be forever SOL when it came to the 29" hoops,

    so are there now more small 29's being made than say 5 yrs ago?

    I liked my yeti 29er a lot but I like my SC with the mullet more

    I finally found all of the parts in stock so I bought a GRX Di2 group for Ms CE's rig. The pain of watching her shifts during our just-finished 3 week bikepacking trip in New Zealand was too much. The Revolt routes the rear cable into the down tube in such a a way that it creates a ton of friction no matter what, and bikepacking bags just make it worse.

    Luckily I was able to take advantage of BikeTiresDirect's 25% off of everything sale for most of it. Ebay hooked up the elusive left shifter.
    ride bikes, climb, ski, travel, cook, work to fund former, repeat.

    165 cranks for my '16 Hightower. I still love that bike, but I pedal strike too often. My newer bike sits higher and has shorter cranks. Maybe it just has shorter cranks, idk, but I'm so sick of striking on the HT, but this will resolve it.

    Accepting your thoughts and prayers for my physical well-being, hahaha!
    This frame is on my very short list to build up a big bike. Looks amazing. Have you had any time on it yet?

    Sure seems like it. She demoed or at least through a leg over 29ers from Yeti, Ibis, Revel, Scor and Spesh, all of which had size charts that went down to ~5'1".

    Was browsing FB Marketplace while watching football and stumbled into brand new in box RS Pike DJ fork for $200 locally! Doubtful a big upgrade over my Manitou Circus Expert, but like my 15mm wheel better than the 20mm I have on there now.

    i wonder what has allowed bike companies to do 29'ers for smaller people ... steeper seat tube angles ?

    Steeper seat tubes, shorter seat tubes, better standover, maybe even longer chainstays?

    Geo on her old by vs new is remarkably similar despite the increase in wheelsize: https://geometrygeeks.bike/compare/e...rascal-2020-s/

    Got busy then got into ski mode, and it's been snowing a ton here, so haven't built it up yet. Can't wait though!

    I finally threw a handful of parts at my replacement fat bike frame.






    The bottom bracket on the last one nuked itself a couple of seasons ago. I rode fuck out of it anyways.



    I was hoping to completely replace the crankset, but I couldn't find a replacement cinch spindle so I nuked this one and polished it up with an emery cloth. It feels right as rain.






    Luckily I don't feel the need to throw decent parts at it.




    I think I'm under $250 for the refurb and under $400 for the used frame.

    Is that an ultrasonic cleaner? Curious how you like it for cleaning parts

    It blew it's fuse right as I was finishing it up. It's shit. I'm moving on to a legit parts washer. The ultrasonic cleaner might have been good for little carburetors and the like, but it doesn't have the agitation required to loosen bike grease and grime.

    Found a Chromag Primer and pulled the trigger on it. Black with gold flakes…. Little pricer then a Rootdown but wasn’t terrible. Think I have all parts needed ( some coming from TGR) so that will be wicked.

    It was mis manufactured, much like the old frameset this one is replacing. It doesn't seat quite right, but it's burly AF. Strava says it has about 3,000 miles on it. I haven't heard a creak yet. Ask me about my teeth at the end of the season?
