Park bike and Trail bike?

The revised Knolly Delirium seems like a good option in this category.

If you only have one bike and prefer the downs to the ups, it is a very good option.

What do you carry to remove tight tubeless and procore Presta valve locknuts?

So am I the only one who carries a proper tool kit when riding?

-park folding tool
-small crescent wrench
-valve stem tool
-leatherman
-pump
- 3 tubes
-chain tool
-spoke wrench
- a few misc bolts the same size as ones on my bike

….maybe now i know why im always the trailside mechanic for others……it must weigh all of 2 lbs.

Scale shot plz. I carry less than this and it is certainly more than two pounds.

Silent rear hub

NOBL…currency adjusted are 2 hun less than comparable Nox/TRS wheelsets + no border issues + FREE shipping and assembled in Canada, yes?

Not sure on cost, but yes to rest. Also ace dudes to deal with pre and post purchase.

NSMB - 2017 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

Down to one bike - new wheels last fall with the DD casing rubber, fork just bumped to 180 and just waiting (foreverrrrrrr) for a ti spring. After coming off the Endorphin / Podium I'm not missing anything being on one bike when it's this fun to ride!

NSR owners

I've got some rust on mine after about four years but not enough to stop me from buying another when needed. I believe their paint/powdercoat has gotten much better recently from what a buddy's newer one looks like.

Rim suggestions

Dammit - looks like NOBL recently increased their pricing! Their wheels with Hope hubs used to be $1,495 just a few weeks ago and now they are up to $1,695. Perhaps this is due to the newer models (2017) being released? I'd like to buy a wheelset from them but struggle with the price… well moreso struggle with convincing my wife that it's a good use of our money.

Send em an email, they likely have some 2016 remaining…

Do you buy from CRC?

Been tagged twice in a row using a bikes-discount order ($20 order on around $130US)…which dips the order in the favor of CRC if I were to go back and do it again.

In general, CRC vs bikes-discount, does anyone have any insight on how brokerage/GST could vary company to company?

I ALWAYS factor paying those costs into my decision making and consider it a bonus if I don't get dinged. B-D.de has always meant paying but deliveries are consistently faster. Not sure why some methods of shipping seem to get through the cracks via CRC but others never do even if both show up delivered by Canada Post.

Dreaming of an aggressive 29er for the North Shore and PNW

Personally, I'd rather purchase from Nobl. Small price to pay to support a local company and to have actual riders building your wheels.

This. Not to mention their CS is amazing. Sure I could have saved a couple hundred $ by going via LB but totally worth it to have someone local(ish) to deal with was a bug selling point.

The jenson free shipping to Canada is a nightmare, and not worth the savings. I miss the days of strong dollar where next day paid shipping from them was still a great deal.

My latest from CRC - ordered August 8, arrived September 28. Currently sitting on my front stoop waiting for them to come get it as I got fed up with waiting and got my money back weeks ago.

^ very way wrong. I've been waiting for some (untracked) brake pads and a chainring since the 6th - this might explain things. Sad face.

Cheap Chains

I presume you mean to 75% and not .75% or do you actually crush 99.25% of a chain's lifespan in a few months?

Either way, I'm with Punky and just buy xt or xtr via crc. They usually snap and disappear in the bike park before I notice they're particularly worn.

Dispute with Landlord Questions

Check your lease and Residential Tenancy Act for provisions about quiet enjoyment of your rental. Just because construction is allowed during certain hours via City bylaws doesn't mean your landlord can impact your rights to quiet enjoyment.
