Love following these builds!

On the black get I'm also finishing my tuck and went with a 91 rear brake and 85 throttle, what size did you guys decide!

Subscribed!



We are using 85 on both the brake and throttle cables.

Time got the best of us today. Still have a few things to button up and have to get that front brake primed and bled. But we did do a few laps around the house before the rain hit.

Just a teaser.
Closing up shop for the day.

More pics to come.

So just a bump on my thread. Mostly because I just want ppl to see it before I have to dump photobucket. And to see if anyone is interested in what we have been up to in my garage. :)

Guess this has turned into more of a "My Garage" thread than my build thread. I would label it as such, but it's not a business. Just my home garage and friends bikes..... so far. And I think calling it TEK's Garage would sound like I do this for a living and not just for fun. lol

Even rode into work. :highfive:

Now that I'm confident that all the bugs are worked out of my friends ruck I can get back to showing mine some love. Got a few new goodies that I hope I can get on her without much fuss.

I doubt that there are many ppl following me on this thread. But for the few who may be I wanted to let you know that once I find another picture hosting place that will let me put my pics on here I'll get all my pics restored. But it will probably be a while. I've got about 9 days left to get ready for a long awaited trip to Colorado! I'm super excited about it, but I've got a ton of gear prep and packing to do before then and I don't have any days off of work before we leave. So my progress on anything ruck related will most likely be delayed a few weeks.

But I did manage to get my new front wheel sanded, cleaned, and ready for paint. I made my spacers to fit the caliper to the much larger disc without anything rubbing. The bleeder nipple will clear the rim by about 2mm. It's tight. Now I need to make my axle spacers to center the wheel and spacers to center the caliper on the disc once I get the wheel set.

So with my upcoming vacation and all the little fab work I'll have to do to make everything fit, it will probably be September before my front disc conversion is complete.

That would rock man. But we won't have that kind of time.

There are 6 of us going in our van. We are headed straight to Aspen where we will chill for 2 days and maybe do some horseback tours and ziplines and stuff.

Then the main reason we are going. We are doing a hike up to conundrum hot springs and backwoods camping there for 2 nights! I'm freaking excited for this trip! And a bit nervous. I'm going to ask my girlfriend to marry me up there. Been planning this for over a year.

Maybe I'm 1 of the 20%?

Too bad I got here late and didn't get to see all the pics. From what i read you've got a lot going on.
