Joes a poser who posts here sometimes but never gets off the bike paths. He really likes the snow.

That EE system is the coolest.

I just ordered some AER bearings for my Ticket DJ build. They're on sale in Q for 15-20% off so I figured why not.

Dunno what it weighs yet, should be here soon, but it’s cool enough for me not to care


Mine won’t be quite so 90’s though.

Assuming that's ti? Pretty hot either way.

Torn between the cool weight stuff and having a neat looking one. Both end up being conversation pieces moreso than bragging rights.

For headset caps, cool wins over light. Even the heaviest cool ones are only a few g more than the lightest one. And you get to look at them more than most other components when riding…

Yep, Ti, mines not being anodised though.

Is the last one a photo of your tramp stamp?

Damn, I am pretty boring then. I got a Ti stem cap and spacers to match up to my octane one oil slick stem.

Light is cool to me as it's kind of something to talk about. Nobody really cares that the EEnut topcap is a gram lighter than the absolute black one, but can show different products to customer and chat about how neat it is. Look at how thin this aluminum is. Check out the way this thing expands. A lot of times the light stuff is cooler as there's more to talk about with it aside from "yeah it looks cool."

It's so rare to find anything in stock these days, let alone something on sale so of course I nabbed them lol my frame doesn't come until June next year but I can't help but buy parts when I see them.
