Boo! Those are my go-to reliable. I hope the spare pair I got last crc order still fit right.


The airs seem to fit closer to the old xc, not my gloves preference but I tried a bunch of options today and they were all pretty zzzzy


i crossed over from the XC to the ace, no diff in sizing


old xc or new dumb xc?


dwgknz - I ran a large on the old xc, large on the new airs seems to work out pretty good

OG and secondish gen (with half a towel on the back of the thumb) haven't tried the new ones but they look average

I hate finding weevil grubs in the packet of a peanut slab I've just finished eating.

Turned my derailleur into a pile of twisted metal, broke a bunch of spokes and fucked up my rear rim today :(

So he can cry harder when he smashes them?

Stink collection of smash AgrAde, instead of Enve, perhaps Zerode?
(I'm assuming the derailleur broke the spokes etc)

Camelbak bladder splitting when packing my fanny.
Then having to ride with a sweaty backpack... First time since I got the Enduro purse I've used a full bag - I really don't like it.

It's off to the warranty department, fingers crossed for a post in the w00t thread.

Yeah, it does.

The only race I've ever 'entered' was a local enduro, but I don't see it happening again.

I'm far too much of a curmudgeon for crowds like that, maybe the colour scheme will help keep me isolated in the bush.

Online stores that say they have something in stuck only to find after purchasing that it's dispatched from the distributer and they take 5 days not 2.

Compared to a small engineering firm in Alexandra who can get me a bb in less than 24 hours during a cold snap!

Stopped in Ashvegas for dinner with a (2006) bike on the roof. At the end of the journey I find some loser had tried to steal it.

The unlockable straps holding the bike to the roof-rack were undone.
The unlockable clamp holding the roof-rack to the roof-bars were undone.
The locked main clamp (bike to rack), rack to roof-bars and roof-bars to car thwarted it.

Said loser in frustration at not being able to steal bike alone or bike with roof-rack. Dented the roof of my car. :angry:
