Truckerco Brake Pads: Saint M820 and XTR

$15 CAD
Truckerco brakes pads for sale: http://www.truckerco.com/#!shimano/c1irr Saint M820 Two sets of metallic pads with fins (front and rear complete) and four sets of semi-metallic replacement inserts (the pad material without the fins). They really go together as system ie the inserts are replacements if you have the finned abcking pads. $15 for the pads (each) and $10 for the inserts (each). XTR Two sets of metallic pads with fins (front and rear complete) and four sets of semi-metallic replacement inserts (the pad material without the fins) $15 for the pads (each) and $10 for the inserts (each). Good pads and good eco friendly system but they are bit noisier than Shimano OE H03C (metallic finned) pads that I normally run and I realised that I will pay more to have silent brakes all the time. Good performance for a great price.

Cane Creek's New C-Quent Shock Explained
@jackalope: @jackalope: I can only say good things about my PUSH Elevensix (on a Nomad which needed a coil shock to bring out its best although they run well with the new X2). Two perfect circuits, firmish for pedalling and plush for descending. CCDB Air CS was excellent but the PUSH is better and it is the custom tune aspect before one uses the adjusters to micro tune that is the difference. The X-Fusion Vector HLR Air I had before that was an excellent shock for the the downs but that lack of climb switch meant it was a bit bobby for trail riding if tuned for optimum descending and too stiff for descents if tuned for trail but it was a huge improvement on the OEM Debonair Pus. Monarch Debonair Plus: worst rear shock I have ever had, only plus was small bump sesitivity. It is now a workshop paperweight.

Trek Slash 29 - First Look
@bohns1: actually he is probably correct. http://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/gear/article/are-275-wheels-and-tyres-better-than-29ers-47047/ Not a complete experiment nor totally conclusive (as they say themselves in the video) but the surprisingly the 27+ tyre was faster in more areas than one might think:

Whistler Bike Park Phat Wednesday - Race 6
And the U13 boys podium would have been second (through fourth) in Open Women's. Thay make 'em fast round here. Something to do with riding trails and the bike park a lot since the age of 4-6 years old, having good coaching and lots of good riders to follow or copy.

Troy Brosnan's and Jared Graves' Specialized S-Works Stumpjumpers - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
Two approaches to preventing flats: 1. Pro Core which costs US$230/ C$300 and weighs a pound. 2. ghetto tubeless probably costs nothing if you mooch some dead tubes at the bike park "dead tubes and tyres" bin and weighs 1/4 pound. I wonder which system works best?

Or you use verniers to measure the pad/rotor width when your brakes are feeling perfect after wearing in a new set of pads and then shave down a bleed block to match that width. Then you have your ideal set up template. Also have a re-usable zip-tie so you can have the levers "pulled in" to the rider's ideal 'bite' position then do a full bleed using lots of fluid to force any air out on the caliper/ line and master cylinder. If you are a pro and have full support this kind of thing is pretty standard (ie the perfect bleed to how the rider prefers the brakes set up). A good shop mechanic will no doubt have his tricks to achieve the same result if you stop for long enough to ask them to do it (and bring beer). I know the boys at Fanatyk Co in Whistler are pretty good when it comes to setting up brakes to the rider-customer's ideal feel.

Five Ten Maltese Falcon Size 10-43

$60 CAD
Excellent condition Maltese Falcon SPD shoes. $60 or $70 with the cleats. UK Size 9/ US Size 10/ Euro Size 43. Pretty similar fit to running shoes. Good grip and decent toe protection without being too heavy or too warm in summer Hardly used due to missing last year due to injury. They are not being used as I have switched to Shimano M200 shoes for riding SPD pedals. Clearing out the workshop of things that don't get used so these are on the sell list.
