    Do you mean the new one (2012 and later X3 aka 26-3, 27.5-3 or 29-3)? If so, I concur. The older Bontragers though, are junk. Here is a link to the newer one so you get the right one (their model...

    If you want a 42, you can get a 42 cog from Wolf Tooth or OneUp for a 10 spd cassette and not have to buy XX1. You ditch the 17 in exchange for it. BTW, I'm 54 and am fine with a 32 x 11-36. You can...

    Where do you mostly ride, the Santa Monicas? That's similar to what I ride in OC (steep 1/2 to 1 mile climbs in my smaller parks and mod to steep 1-8 mile climbs in the Santa Ana range). I demo'd one...

    You can't convert unless you got a new hub/wheel. The newer hubs have pop out adapters to work with various axles. If your hubs have removable adaptors, then yes it'd work with some different ones....

    Switch to Shimano. They use mineral oil so they aren't affected by heat like brake fluid brakes. They're easier to bleed, and I think they feel better at the lever and stop better too. Their bleed...

    I had a 22-32-42 on my old bike but on my new Kona 29er, I went to a single 32 Wolftooth on the front with a 12-36 10 spd. cassette. I love the 1 x 10--quieter, simpler. The 32 works great for me and...

    That hanger mentioned is what's found on many older bikes. As for stems, try Dimension brand. They're cheap and come in many lengths and rises plus they offer the old school mtb bar size (25.4)...

    They weren't thinking. One was listed as homeless. By their mugshots, they're probably tweekers. They were found with pot on them, so they're at least stoners.

    Check out ESI's silicone slip ons--they never move and are super light. Racers Edge is the smallest dia., next is Chunky and then Extra Chunky. I would say that Chunky is the dia. of a typical grip.

    Good points. I myself now carry a mini pump as back up for the CO2. What bugs me is that the guy directly asked for help, he wasn't sitting there passively.
