Ok team let's share the stoke of upgrading your bikes to more an more fruity parts.

I've ordered some btlos Mi 32A 32mm ID carbon wheels last week. Been wanting to carbon wheel up my Slayer for 2 years.

Oh yeah, I've got some new parts stoke.

What's your upgrade and why?

Just ordered a full Microshift Advent X drivetrain, as I’m realizing right now the right move is to “order it if it’s in stock anywhere”.

Just going to stockpile it though. I’m planning a frame up build for next year, so that’s what it’s for (exact frame TBD).

Now I just need the other parts to come back in stock :p.

I bought some new brake shoes, disk brake pads and a wheelset; need to buy a pair of tires.

The brake shoes were for the mini-Vees on my CX; looking forward to being able to actually stop when descending if I want to; they were that bad. Also just installed a new complete drivetrain that will give me a little lower (and higher) gearing.

Wheelset and tires are for my full suspension; its wheels, tires and drivetrain will be going on my currently 27.5+ 1x11 rigid, swapping drivetrains between the two. The rigid will be more of a gravel and hopefully commuter (mix of road and trail) thus getting the wider range drivetrain and 29s on my full fleet.

DT Swiss FR560/Industry Nine wheelset, Saint Brake sets, Schwalbe Big Betty/Magic Mary for the Trek Rail, also a POC Kortal MIPS helmet. Should be good to go for a while

I just bought some Galfer floating rotors because...well just because. They do look sexy as hell, though. If a rotor can be considered sexy. I got some black titanium faceplate bolts for my i9 A35. The stem is black and has a lime green face and the stock silver bolts just didn't set well with me. Other than that, both of my bikes are pretty trick.
