    1 month to go

    I can now finally ride in this beautiful weather. I am sooooo stoked that my bike is at least rideable(I can't do much more than xc due to some mech difficulties with my current fork)...But in 1 month my upgrading will be complete...So far I have

    1 - new disc brakes - Hayes Hydros rule
    2 - new drivetrain
    3 - new pedals (Axiom worht 100$ cdn and I got discounted to 39)
    4 - seatpost
    5 - stem
    6 - grips...whoever designed ODI grips should get a reward for one of the best things in mtb imo)

    In one month I will have
    1 - new wheelset built on Tank hubs with a 20mm front end
    2 - Marz 2002 Z1 fr
    3 - New tires (haven't decided yet but probably michelins)

    Sunshine is here and snow is going going gone...(I hope)

    Suckers! I've been riding all year



    On the Michelin tire comment... Michelin rocks. I've yet to ride a tire by them (Whether its for my car or bike) that I didn't absolutely love. I have a set of Jet S and XLS tubeless that are two sets of my favorite tires. Michelin ownz.
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Raiyn he said "u" instead of "you" thats it. Get ur(ha) head out of your ass because nobody cares and it's really not that big of a deal. You're the one being disruptive

    As for a couple of questions...

    1 - I ride a Kona Roast ht
    2 - I don't actually know the pedal name. Flats, sealed bearings very smooth and a cupped pedal for the feet...very nice.


    And Jim....you are a very lucky person

    Sorry i didn't mean to offend an intellectual such as yourself. I'll try to keep my post gramatically correct so i don't offend you any more than i already have. As far as staying on topic if someone lists compnents that they have i think that is well on topic to ask about them.

    Hey Maelstrom.... you don't have hayes comps.... you have hayes mags... just thought I'd let ya know you have something better than you think , I can't wait to get up there when there's no snow so we can ride! Later.
    if you aren't having fun, then you get rigid, stiff, crash, cry and then you make your new friend run away..... (there don't you feel less nervous now?)

    when it's snowin check this place out http://www.treelinemedia.ca/phpBB2/index.php

    I am considering going to XT...but really an Deroe/LX drive train should be more than good enough for me. If I ever get into racing I would do the upgrade but really, I am a casual rider who likes to go hard and am willing to sacrifice weight for this 250pound body

    I just upraded some parts to LX...I noticed a huge increase in quality over Deore. When they die I will go to XT...but I seriously can't see myself ever going to xtr...

    With sram coming out with rapid fire I may even consider going to that...just for ****s and giggles

    My last bike was XT/XTR with only the rear derailleur being the XTR part. My current bike is full XTR. Honestly, I can't tell a difference in performance. If any of my XTR stuff breaks, I'll replace it with XT. I'm not a weight wienie, so the few less grams means nothing to me.

    Good to know A2...Thats the most honest sounding review of XTR I have heard...not to steal my own thread but did you even get the special shifter brake combo? And if so how did it work?
