    I’d bet that the chain is defective. Are you riding a lot in the small chainring / small cog combination? That’s supposed to be really hard on chains.

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    I don't even know where to start with my trip to the Dolomites. I tagged along on a trip with a bunch of super successful older dudes, a few of which I knew, most I did not, and had an unreal time. I was the laughing stock working away every morning and every night...but worth it. Unbeknownst to me, this was part of the trip:

    #YOLOmites5000, ultimate cycling adventure in the Dolomites

    Every climb was the hardest thing imaginable. So much dirt, rocks, and 25% grade enders, etc.

    We stayed at Ustaria Posta, a hotel ran by Igor Tavella (Igor Tavella (@igortavella) • Instagram photos and videos) Igor is an amazing human being. He is also insane. 100% insane.
    The ride was put on by Igor as well as Jered and Ashley Gruber (Jered Gruber (@jeredgruber) • Instagram photos and videos) They're professional cycling photographers and almost as insane as Igor.

    I need to put a real post summarizing this ride, but I'll let the route speak for itself for now:
    81.9 mi Ride Activity on September 8, 2018 by Gennaro A. on Strava
    Dropbox - YOLOmites5000-3.0 - Simplify your life

    I met some awesome fucking people and made a lot of friends. I wanted to cry at least 6-7 times on this ride from pain. I've done a lot of things on two wheels; this is the highlight.

    So, clearly all these people have masters degrees?

    Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    So I sold my monkey and my full suspension (which was really the one bike I didn't care if I let go or not) and set out to rebuild my fat bike, which, after I broke my original carbon frame, was replaced with a closeout aluminum frame which I hated. So, after many hours of research, I decided the Surly Wednesday was the path of least resistance and the best bang for the buck. Bang for the buck quickly got out of hand, as now that I only have a fatbike for all offload adventures, I needed to do it good.
    After blank canvassing around with the monkey for the past few years, as much as I love the b+ platform for hooning around, the first order of business had to be a set of 29" wheels. I went with a 29 plus front, regular rear, as that seemed to offer the greatest compromise of comfort and efficiency. Theres some trip intent here too, so I had a dynamo hub laced up in the front wheel. Rounding out the parts grab is a salsa carbon bearpaw fork which is one of the only carbon forks in the a-c measurement I wanted (100mm suspension corrected, vs stock 80) AND braze ons in the legs for attaching whatthefuck ever I need.

    Its' not terribly lightweight, 32.25 in fat config, 27.5lbs in 29". I'm really quite satisfied with how this thing turned out thus far. I'll grab a pic of the 29" setup in the morning.

    Curious if it was it the same frame in different material, or slightly different frame?

    Totally different frame and geo. I just needed something now, and it was the cheapest option that I was confident I wouldn’t break.

    Just returned our rental bikes in Amsterdam... I'm really gonna miss pedaling around this city. It's an absolute blast! It's just odd, not a helmet to be seen.

    They have lots of dedicated bike lanes right? If you aren't getting run into by a car odds are you won't need a helmet

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    Yes, a lot of protected bike lanes and it is built around bikes. Also the culture is centered on bikes I just find it odd. Especially having toddlers on the bike with no helmet. I have no idea about their head trauma stats so it's just a weird feeling.

    This might be my favorite build yet:

    2018 Specialized S-Works CruX Frameset - 52 - Satin Battleship/Gloss Hyper/Clean
    -SRAM Force Hydro X1 Shifters
    -SRAM Force Flat Mount Hydro Calipers
    -SRAM Force CX1 Medium Cage Rear Derailleur
    -SRAM 42t X-Sync Chainring
    -SRAM 1170 11-32 Cassette
    -SRAM Red DZero Power Meter
    -Zipp Service Course SL-70 Ergo Handlebars - 42cm
    -Specialized Pro SL Stem - 110mm
    -Specialized Power Arc Pro Saddle - 143mm
    -Roval SLX 24 Wheelset (pictured)
    -Specialized Trigger Tires - 38mm Tubeless (pictured)
    -SRAM Centerline Centerlock Rotors - 160/140

    First impressions:
    -This thing is LIGHT. I don't have a scale, but it must be 2 pounds lighter than my prior 2016 CruX Expert, and maybe half pound lighter than my girlfriends 2017 CruX Expert.
    -This thing is SHORT. The chain stays are tiny. This should result in a very quick handling bike.
    -It handles well. I've done 2 gravelly rides on it so far, nothing very CX like. Not much different than my prior CruX, but I haven't put it through the ringer on any chicanes or technical sections. The weight is noticeable. This seatpost is much better than the "cob-gobbler" on my prior bike which was a sponge. It was squishy to the point of robbing power. This is better.
    -This thing is stiff. In the right ways. Comfortable so far, but this thing reacts like my Venge: everything you put into it makes it want to go forward.
    -This thing is beautiful. I can't stop looking at it.

    Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    If anyone is around southeastern mass Saturday, we’re having a grand opening for our pump track in the morning. We’ll have a kids balance bike course, a normal line with some rollers and berms, and a couple rollable “jumps” as well. Weather looks prime, and we’re out here stacking and smacking all week.



    It’s a work in progress.

    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.

    I’ve been a bunch of times. I rode the mtb race once. It’s usually a very simple course, not technical at all.
    If I’m not working, there’s a good chance I go and have a few pops and yell at my friends.
