Well done! This is a clinic on how to properly run cable! Well, I like it anyway.

haha! Next bars will probably be gold, actually (Azonic WF or Renthal FatBar), but not because of color.

Funny thing about the rollers - - got them on a closeout from Yeti then couldn't bear to put them on for fear of losing one after spending more than I should have. So I figured I would just do one (the lower actually, so there), so that if it came loose and I lost it, I'd still have a spare.

Here is my bike....an oldie and not ridden much since I went "tandem" but have never been able to part with it!









Living in FL she has really only seen pavement with the exception of a few fire roads.

Thanks trout, I spent a bit of time fitting the cable housing and then removing it and trimming it to get it to the right length. Now I have a template for next time.

2010 Trek 4500

I haven't really done much to it except ride it. I would like to upgrade to a 29er but will probably kept this one. This is my first mountain bike and I spend most of my time on my road bike.

Today I did my third different ride on my SS mtb. And failed miserably, too steep, pushed the bike a lot. So I went home and put gears on it . SS just isn't the right tool for the job on the trails around here.

This is my baby, a SS Ogre. Pieced together from my winter bike and the ruins of my road bike. Love it. It's got a rack and fenders for running around town.

Singular Gryphon

Here are a few shots of my Singular Gryphon in singletrack mode. This also my commuter, with a quick change to 50mm slicks, fenders, rear rack, dynamo front wheel and Supernova lighting. I went out for a ride on the Salt Lake City portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. It felt good to blow some of the winter cobwebs out. My daily Winter commute kept be in decent shape, but I haven't seen steep climbs in over 9 months.
That's a Nuvinci N360 IGH out back. I LOVE it! No chain suck, plenty of gear range, super smooth, and word has it they are damn near bulletproof. I built the rear wheel with a Salsa Gordo rim (front as well) to really spread the casing. Two singletrack rides so far, and I'm really liking how this bike performs.

Everything looks great except the front shifter housings, and maybe the front section of rear brake housing. It looks like it would bind up past 45*? Sorry, I know I said I would leave mtb'ing section forever. This is just my opinion as a proffessional bike mechanic. The rest of the housing looks to be of perfect length and routed VERY well.,,,,BD

That Drössiger looks great! What are the details...travel, thru-axle rear, 29? It seems like a huge bike...what size? Great weight for a big FS 29 bike.

^^You'll need to pull them down off your e-mail account and attach and attach the pics or put them on an image-hosting site (like Photobucket) and then embed.
