Hey guys…wassup? Haven’t been out in the woods in a while….things have been pretty wet here in Ohio, so I have been doing the snob roadie thing. Anyway, just made some recent changes to my RockyMountain….went from SS to an SLX 1X9 and found a decent deal ($100) on a nice Fox. With all the changes, none of the product stickers on the bike are still on the stupid bike....Mavics/eThirteen are on the Trance, RockShox is on my Hardrock HT.....

Very nice, d. I must confess, I was hoping to see more progress, but I bet you're a lot more anxious to get it going than I am. So far, I see 1) seat post 2) bottom bracket, and 3) cranks in a box. Did I miss anything?

dminor 05-21-10 10:34 AM

It's a bit of a Catch 22 right now - - some odds-and-ends are going to have to be cannibalized off the Blindside but I couldn't risk disabling it if I couldn't make the Yeti all come together by today. Big rides this weekend - - never and a friend are coming down from Canada for a 'tour of WA' gravity-fest.

Can't install the crank until the chain guide is on (on Blindside); can't install the fork until without the reducer headset lower cup and bearing (Blindside as well). Brakes, cassette, derailleur too. It's a frustration. On the positive: laced the rear wheel night before last and it's at the LBS for tension/true/dish.

Justin Timberlake's voice is in my head singing "It's a crank in a box."

The race machine. New wheels, new SLX derailleur, and she's ready to go for my first race on Sunday.

Luke52 05-28-10 12:26 AM

Gave it a good clean, fitted my number, and she's all ready to go!

New member here. Here is my 1988 GT Karakoram. (I think it's a 1988. can anyone verify?)

I purchased this baby new in 1988. Spent quite a few years in storage. Installed some accessories over the years that were not original including, computer, road slicks, a gel seat, grips and baby seat carrier. I love it! It is my only bicycle. It's filthy right now and I really need to clean it up. It is going to play a large role in getting me back in shape over the summer.

I rode it a few time over the past couple of years and I seem to have issues with numb fingers/hands. Any advice on how to avoid that would be appreciated.
