    The newer Trace hubs are supposed to have been improved over the old ones - like what I had.

    Might be a good idea to pull apart the freehub and inspect just before the one year warranty expiration...

    Or you can buy them from a local business, and not ship them halfway around the world, for $120.

    [derail] I have some very green/earth conscious friends who make good money and the amount of deals they find and purchase from overseas because it saves money. I donít think they get it sometimes. Meanwhile Iím broke and no longer have qbp access so I buy cheap, but always at a local shop whenever I need consumables.[/end derail]

    seriously. Also never hurts to ask for a small discount for ordering through the local shop. A shop will usually oblige since it's basically "free" money being a special order.

    I'm always happy to offer 10% off to someone who genuinely wants to support a local shop instead of amazon, etc. in my shop.

    I try to do that when I'm not in a hurry or I know the shop actually has it in stock. But instead, it's normally something like this:

    Hey T., do you carry the new Shimano flat shoes? Thinking of trying them but need to know if they fit (high chance they won't).
    No but I can order them.
    If you order them for me, and they don't fit, can you return them?
    ...
    OK, I'll just order from Backcountry or REI where returns are free with free shipping.

    Previously:
    Hey, I'm looking to get <this set> of Reserve wheels, can you get them?
    Hmm let me look on QBP. No, only this set with I9 hubs.
    That won't work for me, trying to get away from I9.
    Ok, let me see if I can get a distributor agreement from Reserve.
    <5 months later> crickets
    Fuckit, I'm buying direct.

    I was able to get them locally for the same price, so no big deal.

    Not really bought, but I put together a 27.5 x 3.0 tire wheel for the Rocky. Bike is designed for 29”, so tons of room for the tires, even an FBF up front with big lugs. Almost the same height as a standard 2.5”.
    Should be fun to rally around on.

    XT pedals wouldn't be a special order in your shop though, right?

    If so, Absolute Bikes in Salida has them in stock.

    Did you shorten the cranks? Pedal strikes are redefining how I ride on the modern bike, I canít imagine intentionally lowering the bottom bracket!

    Well, I have 165’s, as only one manufacturer makes a cinch mount under that length. (The Rocky has to run Cinch). North Shore Billet’s are $450, and they don’t sell wholesale.
    I have the Mullet link, so geometry is essentially preserved. The 3.0’s on the 27.5 are roughly the same height as a 2.5 on the 29”, so that’s not an issue, either.
    I also can run the 29” link with the 27.5” rear, so that’s an option to raise it even more.
    As soon as Race Face makes a 160 or even 155, I am buying them.

    This is only for riding on snow, so pedal strikes aren’t so much of an issue, but it really is the same height (or even higher).

    So, it runs a regular crank, with a 'custom' length spindle, unlike almost all other e-bikes. The freewheel clutch mounts to the cinch interface, and the chainring mounts to that. A little too proprietary for my taste, but hot damn does that motor work well. (108NM )

    5DEV goes down to 155mm

    “As per our earlier email…”
    5 Dev doesn't make a Cinch interface, and they looks like they will break just sitting in a box.
    You definitely don't need anything expensive for an E-Bike.

    5DEV makes five different e-bike crank interfaces. WTF, how many are there?!
    As for strength, Neko and I would disagree. Been on them for a while without issue. Triangulation is everything.
    As for expensive cranks on mopeds, bling belongs everywhere.

    Well, you kinda hit the nail on the head, Rocky doesn't use E-Bike cranks.

    Ahhh, got it.
    Makes sense. Five drive mounting options isn't nearly enough.

    Picked this up the other day. New pedals and saddle imminent, I'll drop the fork down to 140mm where it really should be and reevaluate stack height. Maybe some new bars at that point, but should be about dialed (or at least until the dropper dies).
