Beautiful bike! If only the seatpost were routed internally, is internal routing not possible with titanium?

Conti just released new mtn line with updated/tweaked tread patterns and newly redesigned Protection casing. All of the tubeless seating and seepage issues have been resolved they claim.

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.

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.

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.

Orange forks were only cool when you had to be a Pro to get one

GX Eagle shifter on "World Cup" build... I see what you did there Commencal, very sneaky. When, if ever, will we see carbon offerings?

Daaaaaaanm, got him on the ropes! As a former shop wrench I can personally vouch for the crusty elitism of a lot of shop guys...

The best trick for seating a stubborn bead is to set up the tire with a tube at max pressure. Leave the tube in for about 30 mins then take it out and try to set up tubeless. It's called training the bead and works pretty much every time.

One factor to consider is if the tape is too thick or wide, it can sometimes create issues with seating the beads into the rim because the tape crowds the area of the rim's bead hook channel.
