I might be upgrading my cranks and BB to the Raceface Deus from my current Raceface XC. (lighter and stiffer and better looking). But how can I tell if I have the 170mm, 175mm, or the 180mm? Do I measure from the middle of the top hole (bb spindle) to the middle of the bottom eye (pedal)? Or from the very top of the crank to the very bottom?
Also, I need to replace my 3-way air manitou shock so I know on that one I do measure from center of eye to the other. (hole to hole) but how do I tell if I have a 2" or 1.75" one? Is that the measurement from one side of the bushing to the other?
What is funny is that my SUV has a warped rotor so I desided to replace both along with the disc pads. I am doing the work myself so I ordered both SUV rotors and both sets of pads. Total costs in parts = $150. Well, if I upgrade my Hayes Soles brakes on my bike to the Juicy 7 (2007 version) it is going to cost me about $350 in parts alone. Now how is it hat I will pay more for the brakes on my bike then my SUV.
? ?... Just don't tell my wife.... LOL....
