    New Stuff coming out, whatcha getting?

    The new model year is upon us. Lots of new products being released, new bikes, new suspension designs, and a lot of new accessories/components.

    What is on everyone's wish list:

    Me, I've pretty much got my mtn bike the way I want it. I think I'll probably break down and try out some new(different) tires. Haven't decided on which ones yet. Either some new WTB, some Maxxis or some Intense.

    I've been iching to buy a new fork. No real reason, except desire for something better and new. I've seen some closeout deals on some nice forks, but still kinda sitting on the fence. I'm holding out for a Z1 with a QR-20. I've seen the SC Shivers, and I almost decided to get one of those, but I've heard mixed reviews about them.

    I may also upgrade my front disc to an 8" rotor. I also kinda torn with this, since the 6" is all I need for around here.

    I did just buy a new bike. However, it's for my son. It's a GT Mini, and it'll probably be his Christmas present. He's just recently been riding his tricycle with abondon, and will be ready for the bicycle around then. Of course, I spent WAY more than I was planning, but he is my only son, and will probably be my only child (with the way things are looking with my wife's health).

    What does everyone else want, or what are you planning on getting?

    My winter plans are as follows:
    1) new crank set, my old Alivio set is all bent up thus a great excuse to upgrade. I'm thinking of getting the new Raceface Evolve set depending on how it works and how much. If it turns out to be too much or not up to RF standards I'll likely go with the old Prodigy set (now called the Ride I belive).
    2) new tires, I think my stock Maxxis Mofo XC's we really holding my speed back. I might go with a set of 1.9 Nokian Boallzabeena's (sp?) with some lightweight tubes.
    3) new brake pads, stock shimano = crap. Might upgrade the calipers to SD5's as well.

    If I fall into a lot of cash I'd like a 105mm MX Comp ETA combined with a low rise Deus stem and RF straight bar to bring the front back down from the 25mm suspension rise.

    I NEED a new crankset with a bottom bracket that actually fits my chainline (just found out my chainline's wrong). That'll set me back a couple of hundred, coz I'm thinkin about getting the RF Turbine LP or the FSA Carbon Pro cranks.

    I'm also looking for a better fork, but not new ... anyone selling a RS SID?

    I have so much. At this point I am making a decision between buying a full mtb or buying a frame and building it up. If I buy the full mtbit wll be cheaper and I can keep both bikes mobile. If I buy the frame I would strip some parts of my current rig and build up the squishy right away leaving me with a carcus for a ht.

    Tough decision but I am leaning towards buying the full rig and having both and just upgrading some key parts. 2004 Kona Stinky is the bike and I will dump that fork in a second. Other than that a few other components. Definately need new tires, another seatpost and wouldn't mind a high quality rear hub to build the dually on. I wouldn't mind the z150 but it is a little expensive so I may not be able to pull it off.

    I am also going to try and dump shimano if x.7 is available up here. Currently I can only order out of town and I can't risk doing that with parts the shops in town will charge a fortune to fix.

    Those U-Turn forks are quite heavy, IMO.

    Let us see ....

    I need to get a new road bike to start my endurance training again and I am going to get the new Z150 for my Stinky and I need a new helmet since I have cracked all 3 of my current ones.

    I definitly need new clothes, riding and for the gym. Everything I have now is torn or worn to the point that I might not as well wear anything.

    I've been thinking about new wheels (CK hubs... still thinking about rims) but honestly I really don't need them. Half the time I'm trying to talk myself into getting them (easy part) and the other time I'm trying to talk myself out (hard part unless I look at my bank account). Barring any crashes and resulting breakages, I probably don't need anything right now except more skill and stronger legs.

    Practically everything on that list. I'm going to buy some body armor, a new full face helmet, and I'm going to build up a big tough ass hardtail for urban riding. Probably a Snipes frame, but I'm not really sure.


    My XC bike needs a new BB and some brake pads, too.
    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.

    I plan on upgrading my Scalpel 800 with some new wheels, brake pads, and crankset. I may also do new pedals - something with a platform for doing the real technical stuff.

    Here's what I'm looking at:

    Chris King hubs with Mavic Crossmax SL rims
    Truvativ Stylo Team crankset
    Time ATAC Control Z pedals
    Kool Stop brake pads

    Maybe a Lefty fork? I have to talk to my C-dale rep.

    I guess that would fall under the "Nothing, I've got all I need" since your need is dependent on your wallet.

    My next purchase, asuming nothing breaks that needs replacement ASAP, would be wheels and disks. Im thinking
    XT disk hubs
    Mavic F219 rims
    Avid mech disks

    If I ever find the money to put in the order for those ill be doing well, but if I do find more money I can replace my bars, stem, seatpost, and seat, and I will have all the extra components I need to rebuild my old steel hardtail, for riding things that are likley to break my bike.

    Let's see, I just replaced the front wheel on my MTB, used a King ISO hub and Alex TD17 disc only rims with a 185 mm rotor. Rear Speedhub will be laced into one of these rims this winter, but I will stick with the 160 mm rotor in the back. I cut my bars down a couple of weeks ago to the width I was running on my C'Dale, and found out that a wider bar works better with 29 inch wheels, so off to the LBS for a pair of Monkey Lite risers. I stripped the RF turbines off my C'Dale and put the LX back on it, so my 29"er is pretty much right where I want it. I think I'm going to pick up my friend's Colnago Dream, a beautiful Ferrari of a road bike, more bike than I need, but you know what they say about opportunity. Besides, isn't my motto "Don't hesitate, accumulate"?
