Completely irrelevant, but here, bragging about the new bike build;


Looking pretty forward to this one.

Not nearly as pretty but I just finished this thing and it landed at 17.6 lbs

Guides on a road bike are a bit overkill don't ya think? lol

So these arrived this morning. 311g for the front with pads fitted, and enough CNC porn to mean I can't leave the house today Drool

Shame about that scratch though

I love the idea of the Trickstuff brakes, but I lament the lack of small parts and tuning knowledge regarding them in the US. Rather I stick with the big names who have better support, and I know my shop will have spare parts for them if I need.

I ordered the bleed kit for mine, due to internal routing. Neither it nor the brakes come with spare hydraulic fluid... As the brakes use bionol as standard, another order has been submitted...Rolleyes

Speaking of brakes, shortened the crazy long hoses on some new Magura 1893's, no need to bleed them when doing so, the highly adjustable levers are awesome and let you set it up for perfect feathering while still having full power for trials moves when you lock the rear brake. Right now on my DJ/Trials hybrid but might throw a set on my Enduro bike too.

I put a 4-piston X0 Trail caliper on the front of my gravel bike. Mostly for shits n giggles but the extra bite is really nice to have.

Iggy that thing is fire, real light too.

I've got the Red flat mount calipers with 140mm rotors on my road/gravel bike. Never felt the need for more power. *shrug*

I NEED 4 pistons because I'm fat as shit

edit: Those Maxima's are absolutely stunning. I'm envious

So this thing is 18.78 without any of the shit strapped to it (20.3 as pictured) and I assumed that was because the frame is a tank. Maybe it's that four-piston caliper though.

Amen to being fat.. I legitimately think my 2 pot XTs on the steel hardtail are undergunned. Every time I come off any of my other bikes that have 4 pots, I have re readjust my expectations.

Those are some sick rides, definitely beating me on the weight game!

I'm down to 170 lbs thanks to Keto but even when I was 185 my 140 rotors were fine.
