    I'm sure the HT is over your 60mm preferred max length ... Even if it's something really high like 110mm, you should totally stalk it.

It looks massive and stiff in real life and reeks of quality, like everything else on this bike. The attention to detail is high, with washers on the bolts and rubber o-rings to fit over the bolts between the two halves of the clamp.

    The rest will follow soon.

    You're gonna "need" one of these:

    The Bike Shack - GIANT 49046 GNT 12+ Aircap OD2 Expander System Steerer Plug Black

    I could probably facilitate that, if you want.

    Interesting. It came with an appropriately sized expander for the 1.25" fork. Is that just a lighter version? The one it came with seems pretty decent - almost as good as the ones I normally use from Specialized.

    Found these used for a great price. First time for 23's. I am excited to try these out especially after reading about how people feel about these rims and hubs.

    There seems to be a handlebar theme here this week.

    My order for these came in yesterday, thanks to Hoopdriver in Toronto.
    I don't know who this "mark" guy is, but i've got 3 of his nitto bars. :)

    Anniversary gift... Thanks, wife! Not sure she appreciates the danger contained therein...



    Sach, IF, others absent, but a few names I haven't seen before are present.

    It took a couple of years to make it to me (being facetious) but I'm going to enjoy finding a home for it.

    Thankfully, my wife supports my lugged steel "collection". I call it "American Framebuilders of the Northeast."

    Newly arrived paragon parts for the next 5 frames on my list. A couple of mountain bikes, a road bike, a disc cross bike and a disc road bike, (not in that order if you're on my list).

    Received some Schwalbe One 24mm tub. Putting them on stretching rims was a bit of a workout compared to veloflex. They seem pretty subtle though.

    Also received some LW brake pads for my new LW and the 11-27 cassette that will go on there.

    One pair of each from Excelsports. Will see if I can tell a difference. Ceramic ones were on sale, so price difference was not that much.


    Enduro Zero Ceramic Derailleur Pulley Set - The Enduro Zero Ceramic pulleys contain grade 5 balls which are more than 5 times rounder versus stock bearing. They are made with light Delrin jockey pulleys.


    Shimano Dura-Ace RD-7900 Derailleur Pulley Set - The Shimano Dura-Ace pulleys for the 7900 rear derailleur are OEM parts so they will deliver original Shimano quality and performance.

    5 times rounder, is that the new "none more black"?
