Fantastic Wheels
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I did not anticipate how impressed I would be with these wheels. In December of '17 I built a new Pivot LeSS around this wheelset, with much anticipation. I have a few other sets of Reynolds wheels, and they are great, but these wheels are next-level great. I'm not a little guy at almost 200 lbs, and I was more than a little worried that these wheels would be noodles under my weight, on a single speed. I could not have been more wrong. Stiff, compliant, and feathery light, these wheels are the secret sauce in my opinion. At 25mm internal, my 2.4 tires are the perfect width for the rides/races I do most. The I9 Torch hubs are stellar, if a little loud, but the fast engagement has been a great feature for a one speed guy like myself. As a bonus, my set came in a little under the advertised weight!
Bottom line: if you XC/trail ride most of the time, you could not find a better wheelset, regardless of price!

The Only Bar I Like More is a Candy Bar
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had a lot of bars over the years. I've had other Enve bars. But this new M6 hit the sweet spot for me; enough rise, not too much, perfect width, great backsweep. I've been riding it since May, and it has become my favorite bar. I rode it it a 6 hour race, and noticed less fatigue than previous bars I was running. Strong and light, but not necessarily cheap, it still represents a great value in my book.

I'm sure this is a great tool. And if you read the description, it states that it removes BBs from a bottom bracket shell that has 30mm spindle cranks (PF, BB, etc.). One thing I did not catch is that even if your BB shell is PF or BB 30 (46 or 42mm respectively), and it has a Shimano 24mm BB or a Sram 22/24mm GXP BB, the head of the tool does not fit inside the BB to remove it. So just make sure your BB is actually 30mm. As an aside, this post has waaaay to many BBs in it.

UPDATE: I have recently had the good fortune of using this tool (even tho I said I returned it, I'm lazy, and kept it, just in case I ever needed it. So that worked out!) to remove a few PF30 BBs, and it really does great. The blue urethane drift keeps the tool perfect aligned as you swing away with a hammer on your buddy's brand new carbon frame. No worries!

So, just a little clarification on the two types listed; the less expensive option is for the second generation Les, which debuted in 2017, and has a boost (148mm) rear end. If you have this Les, and are crazy enough to go SS, all you need is the $50 option. Your Les already has the correct dropouts, you just need the hardware. The $200 option listed includes all new dropouts in addition to the hardware. I believe it is for the older version of the Les.
