Any Vancouverites frequenting Costco these days? Seen any merino this year yet?

Thanks!

Bought two shirts from the Willingdon Costco yesterday. $22 a piece.

Nice- will head to POCO Costco and look for these

Did you see all the colors there?

Custom Wheels- Which is more important to you? - Hub vs Rims

I think the adage of "You get what you pay for" is true in the world of custom wheels for bikes. Assuming that you have a competent wheel builder, which would you invest your hard earned $ into.

Are you spending it on Hubs? Does that high dollar hub make you a better rider? or does it make you the envy of others?

EG: DT350 vs Chris King/i9

or

Are you more about the rim? Brand Cache or unbranded cache?

EG: DTxm481/ex511 vs RF Arc

For me Im more about spending $ on the rim, as riding out of round wheels/tires makes me want to throw my bike off a cliff.

Re: I want to run a bash guard on 2020 Sram X0 Eagle cranks...

is there a reason you just can get a 30T DM chainring and run it on your X0 cranks? 

Missing ISCG mounts?

Re: What's the deal with the Rockshox C1 airshaft?

Ive had the same experience as you D_C_

Likes to ride high in the travel, lots of mid stroke support and requires less air pressure than the older version

At 188 riding weight, was running 89-90 psi and it felt a bit harsh- down to 80 psi now with 2 tokens and feel like this is perfect for summer dusty conditions

Once the rain starts to come, ill likely remove a token and take the air pressure down a few more PSI

Of a side note, none of the factory Norco boys run more than 1 token

If you have coin to spend, get the Bike Yoke Revive.

If you're on a budget, get the OneUp dropper V2.

If you can live with 200mm of drop get the Bike Yoke. It's like a fine swiss watch. Silent and moves really well, user-serviceable - definitely the best post I've ever owned by a huge margin, but max drop is 185. The new Reverb with the updated remote is an improvement over previous versions - bonus for huge range of lengths (up to 200) and sizes (including 34.9). The OneUp is clanky and kind of cheap feeling but it costs less.

Pnw is the answer. Same price as one up, way better action.

215 US dollars with the lever included. Says shipping is free to Canada. Pretty good deal.

Were are you guys seeing these deals on the PNWs?

Which PNW you guys eyeing? Rainier or Bachelor

Re: Sramano- Franken Drivetrain - Covidiot or no..

Posted by: Hepcat

Was just reading this on another tab https://www.bikemag.com/gear/components/drivetrain/a-mismatch-made-in-heaven-xtr-axs/

So, same brand chain & cassette and it looks like chainring. Same brand derailleur & shifter.

Pretty thorough article on the subject which I like- Thanks Hep

This video shows that in a pinch you could throw on a shimano derailleur with nothing more than throwing it on

Sramano- Franken Drivetrain - Covidiot or no..

With the recent release of the wallet friendly Deore 12 speed drivetrain, got me thinking who has experience in running a franken setup...as in does it actually work?

What chain do you run? what shifter?

Example of the Franken setup

Sram Eagle Cassette, Sram Cranks, Shimano derailleur(XT, SLX..Deore)?

or

Shimano Cassette, Sram cranks(?). Shimano or Sram derailleur)?

I’ve gotten buyers to meet me just north of the border (e.g. in the parking lot of the Campbell River Store). They’re importing it to the US so let them deal with it.

Ya I would agree

Exporting Bike to WA

Interested to see if anyone has done this, I have a potential buyer lined up down in Blaine for my bike.  If I were to drive it across the border to sell it, would I need to declare to US customs that Im doing that?

Do I have to pay taxes on the way back up?
