    New Banshee Paradox frame waiting for a few more things to round out the build... parts mostly chosen with the idea that they will be swapped over to a full sus frame in the future, and the hardtail will be rebuilt as a lightweight trail cruiser

    I put in a Smashpot spring in my Fox 38 fork. Really nice upgrade. Wish I would have done it sooner.

    Finally went 1x12 and got 4 pot brakes on my enduro/trail bike, which will have new rubber this week as well.

    New rear wheel came in, matching set now! $1900 for a kick-ass set of wheels seems pretty reasonable. Yes they are light but not stupid light. The comfort factor is huge, these things are plush. New rubber also. Took the Pathfinder’s off and beefed up with some gravel flings in a 43mm with the rugged sidewall. We ride a lot of janky-ass class 4-6 roads around here.

    I bet those ride nice.

    I always see groad like that and think, man wouldn't that be better on a light hardtail? I have a buddy that crushes that sort of thing on a gravel bike though, so maybe I just suck.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    We use those janky sections to connect to long stretches of dirt road with some pavement thrown in as well. Also, we ride long days on the weekends, 80 miles on a hardtail is hard to fathom for me. 43mm tubeless at 29psi can cover a lot of mixed surface at a fast clip. It’s kinda fun doing the underbike thing sometimes also, knife at a gunfight!

    Definitely agree w the fun of underbiking. Running slicks now, need to swap in some meatier rubber for some fun adventure rides.

    Not super fun purchase, but just dropped way more $$$ than I’d have liked to hide my pump track w 16 6-7’ arborvitae’s after some Karen-like neighbor friction.

    Nice wheels butta, that whip looks light.

    Got a WTB Sendero 47 for the front of my Slate. Riding a fair amount of excavator MTB trails and with the leaves starting to fall I am looking for something with more beef for the hidden rocks I am sure to hit.
    I could buy a TI hardtail to ride the same trails but the twitchy quick steering of the gravel bike offroad is addictive.


    VTskibum those whitetails in PA are going to love your dinner bushes, I hope you wrap them this fall.

    Should have just put a car up on cinder blocks to block out the pump track.

    Lol, Pretty much what most of my friends told me I should do. Especially given the absolutely insane over reaction when one friend rode 10’ into their grass.

    These Green Giants are pretty well regarded as deer proof. Lots of them around my area, especially given how many deer worst case they’re closer to neighbors yard, will keep them off my track.

    I always wondered why I was so fast on the down.. I couldn't stop... lol

    For real, I fried the 2 pot brakes on long descents and would lose fluid in the process.

    Saris has a wicked deal on their modular tray style hitch rack. You build it up on their website with the base and two trays, apply this code "SCG-50-BLACKHAWK" and it drops the price in half down to $499. Seems like a wicked good deal for a modern tray rack. If I was in the market I'd be all over this.

    Nice! But what happened to writing legibly? If a company is going to provide handwritten specs, we should be able to read it. Provide units too.
