    Iphone Tennis Max 512 GB. I know I know. Terrible. Absolutely. I actually feel like Ichi looks when I think about it. Oh, and I got a new truck.

    I reused the power supply and graphics card though. Also, dank lighting system will come later.

    Nice all-rounder. Mudguards, lights and a handlebar for the commute, perhaps?

    Not a fan of disc brakes though ... speaking of which; a new olive for some old hydraulic rim brakes:
    Magura Olives for Hydraulic Hoses

    Trimmed the cable today and needed that olive since the old one can't be re-used. Could order the brakes retail now, but at the time they could only be gotten pre-installed through a dealer and most bike mechanics are lazy; they keep the stock length for brake and derailleur cables as-is. That overly-long cable has annoyed me for the last five years, so ... at last :vbbiggrin: !

    Got the car tuned. Low RPM curve was skewed as it needed tying down tighter ^-^. So ignore before 3000rpm on the tune. It feels just a tad higher there to drive.

    It appears that the entire thing is skewed to me, shouldn't it cross at 5252?

    Thanks! Not sure about the handlebar, but I'll definitely be getting pedals (duh), mudguards, lights, insurance-certified locks, and a seat bag for longer trips.

    I know the opinion on disc brakes is split. I'll gladly make the compromise of some additional weight to get consistent, reliable stopping power since this bike isn't super light and falls under the cyclo-cross/gravel category. Do you dislike the braking characteristics of (mid- to high-end) mechanical disc brakes, or is it the weight that gets you?

    Really like the msata + hd. Overall great products.

    Using it for w10 taming-testing.
