Yes its FRIDAY, but that’s not the reason why we so excited.
Cousin Joe did a make-over on his Airborne Taka. Check it out mang:
So that means tomorrow we get to spend some time on our super secret test location just so we can get his bike dialed in.
Another bit of exciting news…as you know I’ve been testing the 2011 KHS xct556. One of the key features of this bike is its 10speed drive train with the 36t rear cog. I am now in love with how well the drive train works. So much so that I wanted to replicate the effects of the 36t without spending a ton of money swapping out my whole drive train.
So here’s what I did. I went over to Jenson USA and found this 9speed 12-36t cassette. By the way, Jenson USA will price match. I found this part on another site for $10 less, I contacted Jenson and showed them the lower price, and sure enough, they matched it. I went ahead and ordered it and I received it in 2 days! Anyhow, back to my story, I want to place this 36t cassette on my current bike to see if it will work. The only issue I may have could be the chain length. So for now “we so excited” about this upcoming project. I’ll make sure to come back here with some results.
