I've been a big fan of Thomson stems forever. They are strong and bombproof, but mine has the graphics for positive mounting. The new build lets me flip and slam the stem, so I did the sharpie mod. Turned out pretty good in my option and was easy to do. 99% alcohol takes it right off if I change my mind too.

The Specialized CG-R post is about the ugliest post ever made and while it was gold and comfortable it was also a boat anchor. 450mm long.
307.9g with most of the weight in the head.

The Enve post fit the bill at 400mm and 20mm offset. I looked at a lot of other posts and this one popped up for a great deal and is just as comfortable, as confirmed by my butt-o-meter.
213.2g

Total savings 94.7g

New Tire Day! 28mm
Got some GP5000lt from a warrenty claim, but decided to go try out the Pro one TLE.
Pretty easy to get the front tire on. Rear was only slightly harder. Super easy to pop them onto the beads. On DT Swiss ERC 1000 Dicut wheels.
Meassure 27.6mm. we will see how they streach. rought road just seems to disapear under them. Big hits are harsher. I think the reduction in volume has an effect on the bigger hits. Pro ones feel faster at high speed but now as fast at slow speed. They are taller then the GP5000lt too.

Upgraded the rotors to XTR 160, pads to Trickstuff Power+ and lost 84g. Would have been closer to 90g vs new pads.
