Vital should rename the site "lukestrobel.com" and just post these edits every week. Every day? I'd never get sick of it.

For sure. Those wheels were not working for him. Take your wagon wheels and go home, Strobel.

Blacked out decals on the fork was a good call.

It was a bummer to see those chips in my frame after two rides. I ordered the touch-up paint off of Ibis's website and touched it up before putting the new adhesive protector on that spot. Ibis has touch up paint for every frame color they offer on their site.

Ok, good to know. I'll pick up another. I took this picture before I put on my frame protection, but I don't have additional on that chain stay.

Gotta get extra wrap on the chainstay... I have the same chips in mine from chain slap, the OE chain protector doesn't extend out far enough.

Thanks. I agree on the lines. Also does well for storing a tube.

So I just geeked out pretty heavily using this site. http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/calrtri.htm Basically determining the hypotenuse and angle for bikes using stack and reach. To me, this is a good way to determine feel between sizes of a bike. STA ... more »

I like this thread, and actually reinforces a bit of my thinking. I want a playful bike and not as concerned about straight line speed if a bike is agile. I’m 5’7” on a good day with “t-Rex” arms. I’m currently on a medium gen 1 Bronson with around 400mm ... more »

So a little bit of research on the sites shows nope, Wolftooth and Oneup don't make anything for 12 speed, yet. I'd like to think they would soon, or that Sram would offer replacement cogs, which currently I do not see. Here's hoping they actually figure ... more »

Hey @dstucki. Good responses. I don't have eagle, but going to upgrade to a bike with one in the spring. I have a few questions. One the X01 or GX Eagle cassettes, can you swap the 50t out for a replacement ring, similar to what you can do with with ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking to upgrade 10/4/2017 9:35 AM

I am saying to stay away from 26" wheels because most manufacturers do not make 26" anymore. Basically its dead and has switched to 27.5. Sounds like that is a better option for you. The stance seems like a better option. Its almost 7 years newer, uses ... more »
