JT Nebeker's Bio

Hey there!

I love all things mountain bike and rock climbing! If I'm not with my dogs or working on my bike you can find me out on a ride or climbing some rocks at the local crag with friends. I love being outside whether it is pedaling up something steep or on a nice hike with friends.

I also make music and sound fx for movie trailers and tv promos on the side. It is my creative outlet!

If you have any questions about anything on the site do not hesitate to reach out to me!

Had my first ride on the new XT 12 speed derailleur and I am drinking the cool-aid!

Here is what I liked:

1. The install was a breeze.
2. The shifting is crisp and quick. Better than X01 I think
3. Reduced chain rattle is noticeable compared to X01
4. Looks pretty cool

Here is what I really liked!

1. Shifting under load capabilities are no joke! I was cranking thru gears and this thing just took it!
2. The decreased tension on the chain when in the 51t really makes pedaling smooth when grinding up some steep stuff.

A couple of things to keep in mind compatibility wise:

This derailleur is built for the 1x12 systems and can take the 51t or the 45t cassette. If you want to run 2x you will need RD-M8120 and that can only take the 45t.

Wow! As mainly a mountain biker, I have always looked a road riding like... "why?!?". I never thought it appealed to me... But I was wrong! I have been riding the R3 and have been loving it!

This bike is fast! You think you are going fast coming down a trail... Try coming down the road at 40mph! That is a different kind of thrill! Spinning on the road and cruising up long climbs is just a totally different game compared to riding trails.

I am not saying I am never going to ride trails again. Far from it. I feel like I have just been missing out on a whole half of the cycling world. Adding a road bike to the arsenal is now a must!

I have been riding a 56cm. I am 6'1" 175lbs. It feels like a great fit. Not too aggressive of a feel. I can stay comfortable on long rides and find a good position for any climb. The robot shifting (Di2) is great fun as well! Fast, perfect, effortless shifts every time! This bike is a blast!

A nice, streamlined, no-frills, jersey. Runs a little on the large side. The sizing runs a little more "American" compared to the likes of Castelli. I got a large, but would need a medium for a nice tight fit. The large is just too baggy especially with stuff in the pockets.

The material is comfy and great for a summer/spring jersey. Overall a pretty nice jersey.

I was pleasantly surprised by these bib shorts. They have quickly become my go to.. even over my Assos.... Never thought I would say that.

The fit on these bibs is great. I am 6'1" about 177 lbs and a large is just the right amount of snugness and compression. Not too tight and the straps feel good in the riding position. The longer inseam feels good and stays in place very well.

The chamois is been up to the test on my longer rides. Stays in place and is very comfortable without getting too squishy.

All in all a great all around, high-end bib!

I have a couple of rides under my belt on the new F30 from Selle SMP. So far I am really liking the feel of this saddle. The middle channel does its job well. I am not getting any of the numbness that was associated with other saddles.

It doesn't have quite the articulated drop nose as the Drakon, but the F30 still gets the nose out the way enough to not create unwanted pressure points. The slightly flatter nose gives you a slightly better platform to scooch forward on those really steep climbs.

Don't be turned off on the stiff feel of the padding when you unbox it. Once you get on a ride the cushion really helps soak up vibrations and keeps your hips in a correct position for long rides.

It took a little bit of time and small adjustments to get the angle dialed in. I am used to having my saddles pretty much flat, but with the concave shape of the F30 made it felt a little like it was pulling me away from my handlebars so I ended up tilting it forward a few degrees.

Overall, I am really happy with this saddle! I think it will be on many of my bikes to come!

Great pedal from Crank Bros. And a great price point too! The only thing I don't like about these pedals is the axel.... it is almost if not as tall as the pegs on the pedal. Sometimes your foot can hit that axle and not completely get purchase on the pegs and then your foot is sliding all over the place. It doesn't happen much, but enough to notice. Otherwise, great pedal for the price!

If you don't quite need the platform and stickiness of the TMACs, look no further than the Black Kats. Another great option from Deity. Just a touch of concavity on these pedals keeps your foot planted whether you are pedaling some chunky stuff that is bouncing you all over the place or screamin' on the downs!

Great little bag that you can strap down just about anywhere on your frame. You can fit a good flat kit in this bag. It is just big enough to fit all your stuff, but still small enough to stay out of your way when pedaling. I just use the strap on my top tube or down tube, but you can get the B-Rad adapters and hook this to a bottle cage mount.

Great little bag!

I have been searching for a shoe for flat pedals that is not insanely stiff but still will protect your toes/feet. I am not a huge fan of the more downhill oriented shoes. The Sleuths are a great in-between. Pretty grippy, and just stiff enough where you are getting that good power transfer, but you can still feel the pedals. They are also comfy and rugged enough if you need to hike-a-bike for a section of the trail or if its just time for a snack.

A nice little saddle bag from EVOC. Tightens down nicely so there is nothing jangling around under your behind. Just big enough for some C02, your keys, and a snack. Great for your everyday rides!

These are a great sock! I wear them everywhere! Nice amount of compression, but not too much. They look and feel great! Also, they don't get that stinky after long rides or training sessions!

If you are looking for a clipless shoe that has more of a trail running feel, this is a great option! The sole is stiffer than a regular training shoe, but the upper is still has a nice comfy feeling.
These just didn't quite fit right for me. I ended up going with the SHIMANO SH-MT7 Cycling Shoe.
