    What is your favorite component on your bike?

    Just bought some new cranks last week. I ended up getting some Shimano Saints for my bike. I really like the way they feel and how they look. That got me wondering as to what I thought was the coolest component on my bike.

    What is the one thing you look at when you admire another rider's bike?

    I'm guessing most would say the fork, since there are so many different types and so much adjustability nowadays.

    I've always looked at the drivetrain, specifically the cranks and pedals. Don't know why?

    I remember when Race Face first introduced their Turbine LP's and Johnny T started using them. I wanted a set soooooo badly.

    I've got a soft spot in my heart for Profile Racing chromoly cranks due to my old BMX days, and the fact they're made about 45 mins. away.

    That and hubs. I love holding a wheel and spinning it in my hands.

    Forks and rear derailleurs. Not sure why, but those always attract my eye first. Oh ya, and seats.

    To me there is just something about an X.0 rear derailleur and X.0 trigger shifters. However, no matter how sexy they are they aren't worth the money (to me) over the X.9.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I have no favorite. My bikes are tools that enable me to get to great places and have fun.

    I've never been a gear-obsessed measurbator, like so many folks apparently are.

    For me it's the whole bike. It's my first FS bike and I'm loving it. I'm pretty happy with all the components on it for now. I'm sure I'll get the bug to upgrade sooner or later.

    I'm partial to the whole package. To me no component stands alone. But if forced through torture to pick one, I would say wheels. It amazes me that something seemingly so fragile and light can take the punishment they take. But then it comes back to the whole bike. I am just fascinated by the fact that we have successfully developed a conveyance that efficiently moves us from place to place that needs no fuel, oil or hay and weighs in at below 20% of my body weight.

    I'd have to say I notice the frame then, forks, rims, and pedals. Don't know why...just the way I am!

    I like my fork, but that's only until I get rid of this crap frame.

    If it's not clicking, then the frame will be my favorite.

    I like the look of my bikes as a complete unit, not one part sticks out.

    I'm liking the whole thing. It's the first really nice bike I've ever had...my last bike was a Murray 20incher with the banna seat.

    The component I like best on my bike is my Speed Dial Ti levers. Not only are they well made, highly functional, easily adjustable, and downright cool-looking, I also got a great deal on them.

    My favorite component on my bike is me. Reliable, variable power, sophisticated, good looking. What else does a bike need?
    If I really need to have a favorite part on my bike I would say it's my cool MTB Velociraptor tires on my vintage Fisher rigid bike. They let it tackle fast rocky single track in the desert like never before.
