    update

    So, I've been out of commission for a while now due to my knee smacking a tree oh-so-not-gracefully. I messed up some cartilage and some ligaments in my knee, should be back doing what I love come spring again. I've been mostly just going on easy rides, no real terrain as it hurts when I do, gonna keep riding until surgery time rolls around, then I'm gonna let my knee fully recover, and voila, I'll be back in action. So in the meantime, now that I got my promotion i was waiting for, I'm going to change around what is lacking on my bike. I'm going to change the rotors (as mine are slightly warped) , new fork (Fox Vanilla RLC, or Rock Shox Pike Coil ) maybe new bars, i need new grips, gonna change the wheelset, I am bound and determined to find Burgtec Hubs in Disco Camo along with some singletracks for rims. Going for the matching burgtec disco camo pedals, and I'm tired of my Race Face Evolve DH crank, I rode a friend of mine's BMX bike with Shimano Saint cranks and absolutely loved the feel of em, so I'm going to treat myself to some Saint cranks, and luckily enough my race Face and my soon to be Saint share the same 104mm BCD, so I can transfer my e.13 to the Saint no problem. good to be back

    Sorry to hear about your injury dude.

    How many engagement points does that Burgtec hub have?

    the specs on the hub:

    "hub shell made from HE 15"

    "7075 anodised cassette body"

    it says 48 pick ups which I'm going to translate to engagement points, which gives it 7 1/2 degree off set, for "quick engagement"

    "finest quality german bearings"



    and yes thats the color scheme I want, I'm even contemplating since I'm going to plan on getting a new fork, I'm going to maybe get a purple CK headset



    along with these

    there is a saying I think it goes "to each their own" also "one man's junk is another man's treasure"

    I happen to think those would add nicley to a bike that is primarily comprised of various shades of grey and black, add that little bit of color and character

    My statement was the southern version of the first, I think.

    It sounds like a decent hub regardless of color.

    oh, my bad, to me it sounded like an insult, i'm not too southern so, that's maybe why
