What can I spend my points on?
Is it like flybuys where I need 30,000 points for half a toaster?

This is the internet. Like who's line is it anyway, everything's made up and the points don't matter.

30k points gets you a picture of half a toaster ;)

2 of 3 bikes are on cable droppers now so chances of fucking it up have been lowered.
Wasn't far off connecting my dropper lever to my derailleur the other day :lol:

Easy mistake to make, my dropper lever says XT on it.
I'll take a picture of half a red toaster please.

I'll buy an electric derailleur either when the price comes down to current cable actuated SLX pricing or they become rebuildable so I don't have to re-mortgage every time I tag one on a rock.

This.
I'm really liking my XTR shifter and SLX derailleur combo.

I don't get the appeal of wireless, it seems to solve the issues of internal routing, which is useless to begin with.
It's a machine for having fun, why shouldn't it look like a machine?

I don’t really see any issues with internal routing. It’s pretty much set and forget.

With wireless though you’re adding complexity, reliance on charge and putting important components in vulnerable spots.

Swapping brakes shouldn't require hose switching, etc.

I'm a serial part swapper, our house has less of a fleet, and more of a pool of parts that happen to make up a number of bikes at any time.
