New forum so I get to post my new bike again.

Bought a new 60 stem (not on yet) and was about to buy a rockshox reverb but I read that the hydro cable is too thick to use the internal routing on my frame...wat do

Sweet ride! I got my new Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod with full SRAM Red about a month ago. Already put about 400 miles on it. Only 13lbs with gear. Absolutely LOVING this thing.

I have the 2012 -- the one year that they put their most entry level components on it: Tiagras. I am pissed off, lol. I was thinking of putting some new components on it (Ultegra or something), but, after taking a major crash and having some PTSD, I really want a titanium since I know it won't break.

You should really look into a used set of 105 components. Not as smooth as Dura-Ace or SRAM Red, but will stand the test of time. Not too expensive and tough as nails. My SRAM Red on the Cannondale shifts smooth as silk, but needs a minor adjustment here and there. My 105's on the Specialized get touched at the beginning of season and that's it. 1,000+ miles and still no need to adjust.

Nice ride. I have an '03 Enduro that has been very good to me the last 10 years. I am starting to think it is time to start looking for a new ride though with all the updates in technology that have happened the last 10 years. Most of the riding I do would be considered "All Mountain" but I also do some XC stuff and once or twice a year I'll find myself on some lifts. Since I can't afford 3 separate bikes and I need something burly enough to handle Whistler while being light enough to do some XC, I pretty much feel that I need a carbon frame, which is also a nice chunk of change. Here is my current ride:

Place I ride the most is called Galbraith Mountain. It constantly shows up on lists of best non-lift-accessible terrain in the U.S. Pretty much trails for everyone up there from the XC folks to the free-riders. This video isn't me but gives you a good idea of what is available up there.

This is my dream bike right now. Carbon framed Demo 8. It weighs about the same as my current ride so getting up the hill at my favorite mountain wouldn't be to much of a challenge. The suspension probably wouldn't be very conducive to XC stuff though even though the bike is fairly light. I'm also sure that it cost somewhere in the five figure range.

recently upgraded my BB to a ceramic bearing blackbox and got a king headset (and wrapped bars)

I tossed the brakes on for a trip to Austin, I enjoy the hoods so much though I'm likely leaving this bike as is (outside of races) and just building up a different track bike

Gonna get a Surly Crosscheck. Local so most of the dealers will do nice deals with excess stock

Next is a Moonlander, because a fatbike is necessary for snowy commutes.

Though the Mukluk/Beargrease and Warbird from Salsa look nice too...
Guess I'm a QBP fanboy.

Salsa and Surly make such cool bikes. I got a used El Mariachi frame on ebay recently and built it up with my single speed parts that were on an AL frame. The steel is sooo nice.

So here's what happens when a car turns left infront of you when you are cruising about 18-20mph.

Mashed my face pretty hard into the window too but can't really see the lump due to my Portland beard. Guy pretty much dipped after he made sure I was still alive, he was 100% at fault but I was too in shock to really argue/think properly.

Didn't get a license plate or info or anything? That sucks

I guess considering the circumstance at least you came out relatively all right.

Nope, guy was saying I was in the wrong didn't really process what was going on until after he left.
