Hey everyone - another update.

Near the end of summer I destroyed yet another derailleur and decided to ditch my over-extended Zee drivetrain and pull the trigger on a GX 11-speed setup. I switched to a 34t up front too and have been loving it - the range is awesome.

Heading into winter weather I swapped the DHF/Rock Razor for Magic Mary's front and rear - my first time ever riding these tires. I'm not sure if I'm sold - I'm getting too much of a workout out there they roll sooo slowly. Still the craziest grippy tire I've ever ridden though.

Bike is riding awesome, I'm so happy.

Changed the front chainring size - here I was thinking I was such a wimp all along but it turns out what I thought was a 28 is actually a 30t. Still wimpy but not as bad!

I ordered mine before the current catalogue came out - these are the original 35mm hookless "enduro" wheels Light Bicycle offered. They now make a different rim profile in 38mm width.

LB rims are great so far. The build straight out of the box was one of the tightest wheelbuilds I've seen - and they're still tight and true, I haven't needed to touch them yet. I've heard different accounts regarding crash replacement - some people just pay postage while other people are paying full retail - so hopefully I don't have to go down that avenue anytime soon.
