    Norco Optic 1. Two rides in so far so good. Norco was never really on my radar but knew the reputation that they were trusted by lots of canucks. Good build kit for the money.

    My Hightower frame cracked and is being warrantied. More than likely I wont see the frame replacement until fall if I'm lucky. Feel lucky to have found the Norco at my LBS.

    Bought some and ordered some tires for bike park stock. Mount these puppies up in a couple weeks on the eeb. Ordered a mich dh22 and checking the distributor for some dh casing vee rubber tires.
    Ive tried huck norris, nukeproof ard, vittoria air liner, and tannus tubeless so cush core is long overdue. Put this on the front of the enduro/park bike this weekendClick image for larger version.

    I need some flats, pretty set on the OneUp alloys. Anybody have a coupon code for a retailer that carries these?

    Thats always been a dream bike for me. The acceleration of a quality hardtail is something i miss having. My body just can't handle a hardtail anymore. A ti ybb has been stored in my brain since the early 90's. Definitely a keeper

    Finished assembly and swapped tires and took it home today.

    Had heard my shop had wrangled me a new cross bike but wasn't sure when I'd actually see it. Figured like, hopefully before cx season. But it got here tuesday so that was cool. Going to be nice to have a little longer, lower, and slacker bike with disc brakes. That's a 21 kona major jake btw. Pretty good spec, rival 1 with force carbon cranks. Will probably go race gravel in helena later this month with it.

    Nice! that's a good looking bike.

    Pulled the trigger on a Soma Juice frame this morning. Pretty sure I have most of the components to build it up, just need to find a rear wheel and handlebar.

    After a bunch of issues with my MT7s following a crash (first front, now rear), I decided to throw on a buddy's pair of nearly brand new takeoff Code RSCs. I'll probably go back to the MT7s after I replace the olive and rebleed the shit out of them, but I wanted to try something different. No significant time on Codes, just a couple rides on demo bikes, so this should be interesting.

    Tough to compete with new bike stoke, I should be able to pile on to that wagon next week. In the meantime, added am oval bling ring to my current daily driver. I think I'm done adding purple for a while.

    Replaced the old sram spider/94bdc ring combo and saved some weight, but really did it trying to chase down a creak that's still present. Looking more and more like it's new cassette time.

    Iím a brake novice, but fwiw, Iíve been really impressed with them on my Izzo. Night and day difference from my old shimano on my 5010

    If you figure out the MT7s, let us know what the issue was. Iíve been an Magura convert for the last few years. You have to fight some gremlins to get them bled, but once they are setup, they are worry free IME.

    Yeah when they're fresh, they're great. I don't think bleeding is that hard if you understand how bleeding works - I can do that without issue if I don't rush the job.

    FYI: I got a detailed answer over at RM about this. https://ridemonkey.bikemag.com/threa...4/post-4532606
    My local mechanic disagrees on using the silicon spray, at least until after we've tried just using mineral oil first. I'll try freeing them up myself one of these days, and if I can't get it, hand them to him. When I got the brakes used a couple years ago, the front caliper was sticky, and no amount of scrubbing and lubing would make it run smoothly.
