    I've been using Crank Bros Candy pedals for a couple years with no problems. I like them.
    (I still get nervous on technical stuff though. I would like pedals/shoes that work clipped in or not. I'm...

    My bike has Shimano SLX hydraulics. I really like them. I bought it over a year ago (spring 2012). The only brake maintenance I've done has been the occasional (like once or twice) adjustment for...

    Black. I've never liked white forks. Red would look nice on that bike though.

    On my Giant Trance - which also does not have ISCG tabs - I'm using a Blackspire 32T chainring. The guide (definitely a necessity around here) is an E.13 XCX. I ordered the low clamp version first,...

    No, I know about no-net. This trail was before you get to no-net (if you're going counter-clockwise, anyway) and didn't really connect to anything else. This map is a bit out-dated, but I drew the...

    ah. I didn't realize you were new here. The jumps I saw were on a trail off-shoot just before a tennis court. That was last fall. It might be all closed off now. I haven't been to Cherokee in a few...

    I finally got a new guide (also single-ring bolts). It's the same as the other one, except it's the high mount version.
    The angle is off because the clamp is on the bend in the seat post. It can't...

    No issues with the chainstay, just the guide. There are no clearance problems running the ring spacers without the guide. The spacers fix the chain line. The issue is that the guide won't fit that...
