Tell me about it. Dumb parts I don't need stuff that nice though. Have an xt on the way
Good choice! That's one thing I have always wanted to learn how to do
Id have a very tough time going from xtr to xt ( I think theres a small jump in quality and price from slx to xt but a huge jump from xt to xtr but that's my opinion).. but I get it that stuff isn't cheap!
New bike day! Yah I know its not a sweet downhill bike.. but for some reason I love a good fat bike. Sold my cannondale fat caad 2 and bought this Trek Farley 9.8 with HED big half deal carbon 27.5 wheelset
Dang! That is sweet! Are they pretty cushy because the tires? I've never rode one
Thanks! Depends a lot on how much psi you are running.. higher psi youll be bouncing like a ball lol. Its a blast to ride especially in the snow
Do the bigger tires add pedaling resistance? Ive seen more and more of these fat stress tires around
That derailer hanger salvagable or is that incoming also?
Oh yes for sure! Whether you can notice it depends on the terrain in my opinion. On pavement- yup lol. On single track.. maybe- I find myself going faster in the corners, sandy area and even up and down hill because you don't have to pick a line.. lol you just roll over everything! Probably wouldn't take it on downhill sections though...
Ashland bound! Smoky leaving the Bay Area a few hours ago...
Hell y! I'm so jealous! Have fun and kill it!
Ready to rock and roll. Still need to swap the new rear rim on and I'd like to get some cushcore for the rear wheel
My 16 yo took 7th.
3 of the top 4 are Factory Pros racing our little series because the big show (EWS) was canceled due to teh covid.
@2Dogs hell ya! That is awesome
My race was today (Expert 50+ old Fok). Final results not posted yet but looks like I also took 7th. Now the waiting game to see if my Grom beat my segment times...
That was the course from Erin’s Strava
My kid and I both took 7th for the event. For the series she finished 5th in Pro (in the $$$) and I finished 4th Expert 50+. And she did not beat any of my segments but that day will come....
Also our team took 1st in the team comp for the 3rd year in a row.
Some pictures are surfacing, here is one of the old fat guy -
Good Times Old Man! hehehe
