Oh, that one would be perfect! I have no desire to lug around an 11t cog that I'll never use.


Good info. I'm still not sure if I'm going to do that or piece together something.

Cadence is 85-100 usually, and I do like tight spacing. The thing that I worried about with the compact big ring is that for the same speed, it would put me on one cog smaller, and as cogs get...

Ok well that's a good point. I'd probably just get used to it anyway. The important thing for me I guess is to have a gearset that gives me nice, close spacing where I normally ride (19-22mph on...

I just did some pricing out on Merlin. Since I don't need a bottom bracket (my bike has a press-fit BB90) and since I'd rather have a KMC chain, I can actually price the individual components out...

I have thought about that, but I do have a 50/34 lying around, and did install it on my spare bike. It was fine in the 50, but when I dropped from big to small, it seemed like a pretty huge gap and I...

New groupset time?

So, my Trek Emonda still has my old Dura Ace 9-speed groupset, but with a DA 10-speed crank and FD. Shifting is decent but not fantastic, and with prices so low now, I'm thinking about pulling the...

Funnily, I use one on my road bike (it does cadence too) but not on my mountain bike.

Anyone using a Lezyne Super GPS?

I'm looking for a replacement for my crappy Garmin 510, that loves to lose ride data. I've decided that for me at least, a touchscreen on a cycle computer is about the worse design possible. So I'm...

I had a friend go down once years ago and an unplugged bar end nearly took a core sample out of his right bicep.

And now that I look at the one in my garage, I think the 3 is a different fork from what you have, but it still has elastomers. Here's a manual you can use if you want to take it apart: ...

That looks like a Manitou 3. I have one in my garage. It uses elastomers on a skewer, and the only adjustment is preload. You can also swap out the elastomers for harder/softer ones. I think they...

Thanks for the replies. It would be easy enough to try a longer stem, as they're pretty cheap from the local Perf. But I don't know that I want more weight over the front end. I actually find that...

Geometry question

I picked up a new Top Fuel 8 last month, and I've been having a blast with it. But the one thing I've noticed is that this bike feels really short in the cockpit compared to my older bikes. I've...

Thanks!



I do like the Ardents on my 26er for the trail conditions I ride. That said, I'm not married to any tire. I've also considered the Conti Trail Kings.



Yeah, it's got 2.2s now...
