  3. Out 'cause Shinerider's not going. ...actually I have kiddo stuff/parenting responsibilities. See y'all next week.
  4. Non-boost (12x142). That’s why they were cheap. They’re sold out now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. You say that you still have really flat light on the trail but you’re wanting more lights to eliminate shadows. I see two problems. First, why are you worried about the shadow your front tire makes? You need to be looking further down the trail. Any shadow there is illuminated by your helmet light if you do need to look closer to the front of the bike. Second, the more lights you have at different angles, the less shadows you will have. Which will make the light flatter, giving you less depth perception of the trail surface. Your handlebar should be a flood, your helmet should be a spotlight. Anything else is too much. If you don’t like the light you’re getting from the two, then switch to lights with brighter light or a better light pattern. Shadows behind rocks and roots are good. *bonus tip: Glad Press’n’Seal wrap over the lens makes a really good diffuser. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Shimano Brake and Rotor please?
  9. Yup, my cheapo lights have a battery warning light that works most of the time, but when they go out, they go out. There is no dimming, or reduced power-save mode. They go black. But since I always ride with two and an extra battery in the pack, I've never been all of a sudden riding blind.
  10. Amazon specials on both the helmet and bar. Cost anywhere from $16-20. Perfect for walnut until the batteries go bad then I just buy a new amazon battery. I’m not doing any 24hr races. I’ve found that I can usually get 2 seasons out of them before the battery craps out. The lights have been great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Not sure if I should ride Woody’s bike or mine, but I’ll be there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. How often do you guys break spokes? I think I haven't broken one in...7 years? Then again, my wheels have always had specialty spoke nipples due to both Mavic's UST rims with their FORE spoke holes and DT's use of squorx nipples and washers on their rims. Both of those rims were more of a pain to lace up, but they were bomb proof. Especially if the fancy spokes/lacing method are designed as part of a stronger wheelset, then what is the worry? Sure it's more of a pain when one does break, but if I only have to worry about that once a decade, then I think I'm okay with that. I always thought that when your wheel starts popping spokes, it meant that the whole wheel was starting to go. Replacing a spoke is only a bandaid fix.
  13. For $1355, you could get a set of i9 Enduro 305’s. 30.5 inner width and about the fastest engagement there is. It’s not a huge drop in weight, but they’re sweet wheels. I love a good set of DT wheels though, best bang for your buck hubs ever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
