When are those Graphene levers coming to market? ;-)
The term I'm an engineer should only be used while hammering something in place with a 2 by 4 while using copious amounts of duct tape.
As someone more on a budget and still stuck in the era of 10 speed 11-36 has anyone experimented with the SunRace 11-42? It's priced at only $90 at MEC and is hands down the most affordable option for getting a 42 tooth granny gear on a 10 speed.
You would have been a hero to me and my unborn children if you had showed up with a patch kit that day.
I'm eating cold Glico curry for lunch...
I had to walk down John Deere last year because the dumb dumb I am got a flat two days earlier and then flatted again and I hadn't replaced the tube in my camelback. In the old days when this happened you could usually count on trail Karma from someone who had an extra tube. But EVERY single rider was like "Sorry I ride tubeless. I don't carry a tube anymore. "
Add medical tape to #3 also. It has the magic ability to keep it's adhesion even when it's pouring rain. Plus you might need it to close someones gash in an emergency. A couple feet wrapped around an M&M minis canister with some first aid essentials inside like some gauze and an alcohol wipe makes an excellent 'enduro' first aid kit.
Thanks Cam for coining the new term Heirloom bikes which will now be used to refer to any 26er with a 142 or 135 hub size. Personally I still enjoy my Heirloom Slayer. 😂😂😂
I learned this trick from an electrician years ago. Super easy. Twist them off with a pair of pliers. No sharp bits and no special tools. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-nxt7jMiys
Bring my dog. She's the perfect sandbag. You need to make extra stops at branches in the trail so she doesn't get lost which guarantees extra spots to catch your breath. (Before anyone gets uppity I don't really bring my dog on days when I think the pack will be to fast for her. She's fast but she's not Fiver World Series fast. Lol)
This is a few years old but I can attest that it was a very comfy seat which is unfortunately not compatible with high speed impact with man parts. I don't have kids in case you wondered.
