Lock that Sh*t Up - July 11, 2020, 5:54 p.m.

I've been using a chain/Ulock combo that I picked up at the Giant factory sale a couple years ago. I then replaced the pinner aluminum tie down hooks Toyota uses in the bed of their Trucks with a CNC'd piece of hardened steel. So really theres thick steel down the whole line of defence. If a thief manages to get through all of that then he can have my bike.

I always cut a slit in whatever headset I get for this exact reason. I've even done it to a King one lol

Yeah but you'll have a a bunch of shitty headsets for the same price as a CK. As I get older I'm finding I like to pay the premium up front and not worry about it anymore.

If theres clearance at bottom out you could probably re-space the shock and gain more travel while maintaining eye to eye. Im eager to see one in the flesh to see if its possible.

I'm 6'4" and on an S5 Enduro, coming off of a L Pole Evolink. At your height I would say XL in the Sent BUT that STA is slacker than the S5 and Evolink. Maybe seat position could be adjusted for you, point being I would sit on one but I would put money on XL. Cheers.

My man! I bet his wife is a fox too.

I can't believe I'm reading any negative comments about the brand, honestly. I have a pair of their Destroyer shorts I bought at the sample sale last year and they kick the shit out of my Sombrio and TLD shorts as far as quality is concerned. Complaining about the price? Whoever complains about the price is out of their damn minds. I actually saw a pair of TLD/Adidas pants for sale for over $300 and they aren't even made here! Plus they're made of paper! How is that acceptable is beyond me. Whatever your thoughts are on the brands marketing is your opinion but I feel like we should all embrace these local brands and support them as best we can.

After having my 9point8 with the sideload rails I could never go back to this style. Post looks great otherwise.

No. Dustin mills all of the stems in house in Kamloops on a Haas VM3 and makes all of the bars/rims in house as well. I know this because I've seen it with my own eyes and openly posts footage of said cnc machine on the WeAreOne Instagram page.

I looooove my Storia! Now if EXT could get a service center in the gvrd that would be great...

Schwalbe ProCore Revisted - Aug. 27, 2019, 7:46 a.m.

Procore is a heavier system for sure but I wonder how one of those 80g Tubolito tubes would work with it? Knock off 100g per wheel I would think?

Yeah the US site says October but that cant be right. Maybe is though who knows with this industry.

Any idea when the bikes/frame will be available?
