    Occults. I bought them last fall and then had shoulder surgery the week before they arrived, so they've been sitting in a box until now.

    I've been running them since November. They're awesome. So grippy, no bearing bump, and I haven't managed to kill the bearings with excessive washing yet (which is unusual).

    Anyone know where I can find a RockShox Sid Select+ ? The 100mm travel, 29"+ wheel accommodating size. NO remote lockout. Just figured I'd ask if anyone's local shop has this. Happy to pay even a little above retail if it's new. Model FS-SID-SELP-B4

    No, the next question is why the fuck are you staring at this dumb forum while you’re in Peru? Put down the phone and step away

    Nice, good to hear. The only downside is that I've wasted 6 months of my first year free rebuild!

    I have been here for two weeks, and I have been here to ride/etc 8 times...it’s my ‘second home’ space, kinda. And it was pouring today. I’ll do a proper TR when I have better internet. Have been riding multiple rides every day except for travel days, of which this is one...teh gnar is real. And I fucking LOVE the new altitude...

    Rebuilt fork/shock with custom tune from Diaz being delivered today. Fucking stoked! I have been riding my wife's tiny bike with kids for three weeks and I am ready to be done with that shit!

    New parts for the build trickling in. Lucky to have found a chain, think maybe I found a crankset in the UK, order was confirmed but hasn’t shipped yet over three days. Worried their “in stock” on website is real, but we shall see...

    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    gmen.

    Ill make a proper TR when I get home. wow, friend just told me that we descended almost 60,000 feet of all gnurr in 9 or so days of riding with no lifts. And about 28k of climbing, (not totally sure) most between 10k and 15k elevation.
    The Strava stats are a little messed up because I recorded a bunch in snowboard mode, which didn't count the climbs. I think I am ready for Moab.
    But im still slow.
    And old.
    and ugly.
    But this was a great test of a few new things, the Altitude, the Zeb, the '21 X2 performance, the Tannus, and the Dissector. I cant think of a better test for these things.

    I’m slow. And getting older. But age has nothing to do with it.

    Crazy thing is, I opted not to install this shit Friday night. Wrecked a derailleur yesterday. Feeling pretty “good” about that.

    Just ordered a 27.5 XTR rear wheel on DT511’s, brand new for $199. And a DH casing Dissector.
    Mullet wheel for the Altitude.

    Trying to order a DHX, but eta is ‘close to never’.
    The Altitude started as a ‘weight weenie’ version (yet with a Zeb, etc), but is going on a durability weight-gaining diet.

    Sick deal, id pay almost that for the rim alone here.
    I saw dh casing dissector listed somewhere recently(bike24 probably). Dont think ive seen those.
    Ordered a couple more tannus' for the wheels. Cheaper locally than vittoria air liner from chainreaction
