Re: New Prescription Riding Glasses?

Best brand is 3M safety glass /w prescription and transition lenses. Not cheap, not a fancy brand but holy Mary mother of fuck do they work well.

Edit: they're fitted to your head when you get them. Then they come in later, mine took 3 weeks.

Re: buying a used frame from the US and A

Bought a used roady frame five years ago in the states for around 1k usd. Declared everything and brought to secondary where they googled the msrp of the frame and demanded that value as duty. After four hours of being treated like shit I ended up leaving pretty pissed off and paying them the msrp duty. Let's just say I will never purchase used via the states again

Any riding groups around

Looking to tag along for a rides here and there. Lower mainland area. Out of shape intermediate rider, not really willing to go big or do crazy lines anymore. On a railroad schedule, so life's pretty hectic. Just want to get out there and ride a few trails, have a good time kinda deal. All my old riding homies are now on dirtbikes or sleds. 

Groups, clubs?

On the topic of tires, I see there’s a high roller II in 27.5x3.0 good? Or too slow rolling.

Can't go wrong with the 27.5x2.4 or 27.5x2.35

Hey peeps, just ordered me an NS eccentric ALU 27.5 build with a 140mm up front. Anyone riding one of these guys and got any info or opinions for me?

Any questions you've got I can hopefully answer. Mines @ 140 since late February. If you haven't built yours up you're more then welcome to try mine. As long as you're comfortable on SPDs

Sick Primer.  Matches the Chevy nicely.  

How are the Hope crankset?  Thinking of getting a set myself.  Can't find their cheap speciality BB tool though.

You can borrow my bb tool if you decide to get one. I got mine in PG for 25~ bucks

Re: 170mm dropper post recommendations?

Bike yoke revive. They make a 185 or a 160. Best dropper I've ever used. No problems and zero servicing over the past year. You won't be dissapointed

Re: Xtr m9000 RD 11spd

Did I get a lemon? Did the stars align and the power of my legs is over 9000 and it just ripped out. I was riding with my mechanic and he said he's never seen anything like this. Also for what it's worth the clutch was in the ON position
