I took my fork and shock in on Saturday. They've gotta send off the shock to be serviced (there is air in the damper) for $150-180, then the fork lower service is $60, and the damper/air spring swaps are $30 each. The fork seems reasonable, but I was kind of blown away by the shock price.

What's everybody's favorite $100-150 bibs? Bonus points for a larger/taller fit - 6'3" and around 205lbs.

Assos is the only brand I've tried (Equipe RSR) and I'm getting the GTOs soon... Here are the Equipe RS on sale. Idk what size you are, maybe check out their clothing section for other models(?).

I've been tempted to try other brands but they've been solid for like 2000 miles.

They have Mille GTs too for $99 but idk much about that line.

I wanted something to ride for exercise but also something to tow around my kids

I went with a specialized Sirrus :dunno:

I had not seen one in a large frame in a really long time, called on Thursday and they had gotten the first one they’ve seen in over a year

:dunno:

Yea, I've been just buying new stuff and selling my old stuff instead of servicing lately (and obviously disclose that it needs service). People with tools/knowledge will take the discount.

Bought a Pike and sold my Fox 36 and it was cheaper than servicing the 36. Bought a new dropper and sold the old one, same thing.

Anything from Castelli with the Progetto chamois. The Kiss chamois might work for you but it chaffs me and that eventually becomes saddle sores so it's worth the price premium to get the Progetto.

They're in that price range on sale. I'm 6'6" 220 and need 3XL, maybe 2XL if I wanted a snug fit. I wear L or XL in most other clothing so definitely go at least a size up.

Monkey Knife Fight this weekend. Can't wait. One of my favorite rides last year, hoping to tear it up again this year.

Some pics from last year:

Think I'm going to do more fasted early morning rides (90mins) during the week and go far on the weekends. First time on this section today.
