What did you do to your bike today?


#17921

Put a Wald 139 on porteurbike, officially making it a basketbike.
Adjusted brake levers and rewrapped the bars on #rivdork Sam.
Added an Xzibit flap to the front of the day ruiner, was able to use the same template as the flappyflap on the basketbike.

Finally found the little plastic lego things for the Secula, so I rewired and refined the rear light mount on the ruiner.


#17922

put together new mtb
flatted the rear’s tube on first ride


#17923

tube


#17924

we are creek twins. Mine was my cassette too, but I found it after playing with the bb for three minutes and decided to see if the new cassette was still tight just for shits.

It was not.


#17925

I’ve found a ton of creaks coming from carbon-backed cassettes. Shimano will warranty them with almost no hassle, which sounds to me like they know it’s a problem.


#17926

Recabled internal dropper post for a second time in as many days. LEV Internal dropper posts are difficult to size for.


#17927

Also rode the many shits out of #SexMachine (27.5+ mountain bike) on night ride single track. Was fun as hell.


#17928

Cleaned and re-lubed the chain (again).

Tightened (almost) all the things that could be the click.


#17929

I picked up a Racktime Topit for cheap, and tried to fit it to the Sundeal. No go. The rack isn’t tall enough (at least on that fork) to clear the tire w/o rubbing, but its close to working.

Also bought standoffs so the Wald basket can mount to the eyelets, then swapped back to the QR axle from the solid one before realizing that the QR still won’t fit even with the standoffs. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu I give up


#17930

Rode it to work. I… did not fix the click.

I guess I gotta pull the beeb after all.


#17931

So the Ardunel Looney Bin didn’t fit quite as nice on my disc NFE as it did on my canti NFE. I was hitting the chainrings with any reasonably wide bottle or can regardless of how long the spacers were. Decided to give the Wolf Tooth B-RAD spacer/slider a try.
Works fantastic, really happy to be able to fit a 24 OZ beer (and my tallest water bottle + fenders) with room to shift.
Note: removed those nylon washers/spacers after realizing the instructions said that they were optional to be used between B-RAD and frame.



#17932

Unrelated, but how are you liking the Byways vs the Horizons?


#17933

Fred discovered a #Tacticolor knife that matched the Elephant’s colorway.
Then I discovered that the silicone Otto lock mount I had in my parts bin was a perfect retention strap to keep the knife a little more secure.
Crossing the zip ties around the dynamo wire guides keeps the entire thing surprisingly secure.





#17934

Seem good so far but I’m a terrible judge of tires and wine and food.


#17935

Holy cow, that knife.


#17936

Love how fun Mora are with those cheap bushcraft knives. That is the most boss matchy match game on earth.


#17937

Recabled right hand shifter on Tallboy. Checked to see what had asploded in my XTC’s rear wheel 15 mins into the ride. Was just a loose lock ring. Phew. Was thinking free-hub failure. Pulled BB out of Kite. RHS bearing munted. Dicked with new dynamo lights set-up.
