So any chance they are going to drop the summer pass prices as they are the winter ones...?
One upside of the delayed XTR M9100 cranks, we get a new lighter crankset that uses the old pinch bolt non drive side interface, but still fits the new direct mount chainrings.
As someone who hates the fact that you need a bloody big torque wrench to get most cranks on and off nowadays, this is a big plus for me.
Every time I look at the gouges and chips in my XT cranks
I wonder how carbon would have fared in the same place?
But the main reason I am on Shimano right now is because you can install & remove the cranks with regular Allen keys, with no need to torque the crap out of a crank bolt. Seems to be changing with the new XTR though...😢
Recently got the Ecobee 3 lite, and so far have been very happy.
Picked that over the Nest as it seems that it gives a little more control over various thresholds etc. My system is a little more complicated than the OP's as I have a heat pump with a gas furnace as auxiliary heat and the Ecobee lets me set how long the heat pump will run for before calling for the furnace as well as a load of other settings.
For a single heat source a standard thermostat should be fine though.
Just finished removing and remounting a set of SRAM X9 cranks and I am always annoyed by the amount of torque that is needed to remove and tighten the crank bolts.
Shimano's hand tightened pre-load and pinch bolts seems like such a better system that I am always amazed no one else uses it, or is it under patent?
So does anyone know of a 100mm fat bike crank that does not require 45+Nm of torque to mount?
Sounds like a great idea, as long as you can wash it off your bike afterwards.
"…it's pressurized inside with a noxious chemical deterrent that slams the would-be thief with noxious chemicals. The chemicals are so disgusting they induce vomit in the majority of cases, and elicit an instinctive response to run away immediately."
Running a 29" 2.4 Der Baron on the front and I'm very happy after a few weeks with it. Grip is pretty close to the Magic Mary it replaced, but it is wearing far better. Made me realise how much the MM's performance drops off as it wears.
No issues with mounting it tubeless on a Nobl rim, and no burping at around 22psi. It did lose a bit of air over the first week, and I had to add a little more sealant, but overall I'm very impressed especially for the price. I'll be getting another when this one's done.
