    MerryXmas to me as well on that front, although now I'm bummed that I didn't get the set of Torx as well.

    I got that same set of Wera hex tools for Xmas too. My 30-year old set from Bondhus is worn out on the 4mm and 5mm ends.

    LOL, true, but TBH, it was because the Lyric and Super-Deluxe I wanted in order to make this frame a 150/160 are not available until May or June. Figured it was a good a reason as any to try some CC squishy bits and whatnot.

    I'm running the same fork/caliper/rotor combo (in 203) on my big bike, so good. I used to like Shimano rotors until I moved to the Galfers. After installing the Galf I thought they were too bendy and would end up rubbing all the time. Hasn't happened once so far, they're vastly superior to the Shimano offering in terms of staying straight.

    Good to hear this. I was running a 203/203 setup which was perfectly powerful but felt a little imbalanced. Normally I would put a 180 in the back, but I want to be able to swap the wheelset between this bike and a future long-travel sled. The Galfer 223 rotors have a lot more material and feel much more substantial than the 203 ones, I'm not too worried about premature warping/bending

    Bought a pair of 27.5 wheels ( Nukeproof Neutron )for a Chromag frame. Will put some 2.8 or 3Ē tires for a winter / fringe season setup. Just need to grab an XD freehub for it.

    Doing the same, all three of my Mt. Bikes will be 223/203.

    I paid $2500 locally, for what appears to be a very lightly used well maintained example. It's the XT/SLx and fox performance build. Other considerations were a rocky mountain altitude and a transition patrol. Both were significantly more beat up for similar $. They both had a nicer build package. This one just seemed like the sweet spot. I'm stoked. Just rode it around the neighborhood today after kids hockey. It is nice. I want to ride. I'll ski tomorrow and until the snow melts, but man i want to ride bikes.

    Couple of recent wet road rides motiviated me to put fenders on the cx bike and got some big slicks for it. Just in time for it to be cold and snowy.

    While recovering from a bad injury in Nov, I decided this was probably a good season to focus on some fitness and long rides and try something a little new.
    Iíve never had an actual road bike, always just put slicks on a gravel or cx bike.
    Had a good time putting this build together. Now just gotta get somewhere with some dry roads.
    Late Feb Tucson trip is looking likely.

    Haha. I know. AXS helps the cause, as does Stealthamajig. This setup wasnít that bad., the hoses come out of the tape and go under the stem, but yep, through the bearings.
    The Abbey cutting guide helps. It works great with the fork on the bike, just swing the bike down in the stand.

    The time looks like a good time. Looks fast. 10/10 would bang.
    I like the leather look grip tape against everything else super carbony. I might have to do that to my road bike.

    Struggling with the following purchase...

    Backstory: The GF got a Specialized Stumpy Comp Alloy last spring and has taken to mtb faster than I/she thought. The bike fits her like a glove but it's kind of heavy and doesn't have the best component buildout (duh). Spec has the Evo Comp carbon on sale right now for less than what she paid for her current bike. She's expressed she wants to do more park riding this year. The Evo is definitely better suited to mix in some park days here and there and some shuttling, we have multiple spots around town for that too.

    This decision is kind of a no brainer I think, but I'm really hung up on what the uphill performance difference will be between the two. The Evo carbon is lighter than her Stumpy alloy, so there's that.
