    My latest purchase comes from the cosmetic aisle. Touch up for the exposed aluminum after the dremel fixed the RD stops to allow for full cable run.

    Getting married (!!!) in October and I needed to go down to one bike with some versatility. Thanks to Bikenetic for the hook up! Salsa cowbell 2's and 35mm Clement X'plor USH tires so far. I was only able to take it for a quick spin last night but I can already tell that this steed will be FUN!

    Why are those two things related?

    I'd say they relate in terms of budget and excitement.

    You're selling the other bikes to pay for the wedding and you're so excited to be married that you don't expect to ride as much?

    I think it was just an excuse to buy this bike. Which is beautiful.

    Dirt set me up for the blizzard to end all blizzards with these nice 45North Xexres studdeds. Very easy to mount and lightweight. And I had to get the cool Bikenetic Buff too! Bring on the snow!

    That is funny; I *just* ordered a set of Xerxes tires. I didn't realize Bikenetic carried these or I would have at least attempted to buy them local (I'm guessing local stock on studded tires is probably not great). I'm really excited about how lightweight they are. And the interwebs suggest I can set them up tubeless too.

    I riding a set of the similarly-sized Nokian A10 tires, which I've had for a few years, but I'm having trouble with them on my Grails rims; the wire bead refuses to seat properly now -- staying in the channel at one point in the rim. I've tried the recommended tips of soapy water on the beads and pumping it up to higher pressure to get them to pop in, but to no avail. Riding with a flat spot like that on the tire is pretty annoying (mostly noticeable when riding on solid ground/pavement).

    Otherwise, I've found the 700x32 A10s (measure ~30mm wide) with side studs to be perfect for commuting around here. They obviously don't do deep snow, but that isn't a problem I face on my commute.

    What is lightweight in this context? 10 pounds or so?
