What did you do to your 1X90 today?

I put in a new clutch cover gasket. I installed a full clutch with the basket a couple months back and forgot to order the gasket! The old one held for a bit but it should be leak proof now!

I just went tubed in the front as well, it was a good ride, but I think this is for the best.

Yep I already have a tubed front following a bent rim. Figured I'd ride out the rear until I did something stupid, and here we are!

Any recommendations for a complete wheel? Leaning toward Warp 9 this time.

Kinda makes you wonder how the new Alpina Tubeless set up will work with the new bikes. Id think they’d be a direct fit. Certainly not less expensive though.

$913 usd isn't bad for a complete rear shipped from Alpina. The equivlent Woody's is $1300. What's the deal with Alpina though? I haven't been able to find much about wheels for the 1290 in general.

Warp 9 makes their own rims, which I misunderstood. Some old (2008-2010) reviews were a bit critical of them, but modern opinions are scarce.

Set of Power Parts wheels without rotors and abs-rings would be around 1200€. They should be tougher than original.

Well the tube died, probably because the hole for the valve stem is offset and I probably didn't secure it properly.

But the local shop slapped on a new valve stem that seems to be holding. It set me back 60 pesos. I wish a new wheel was 1300 pesos.

Old boot laces keep the inner hub clean. The only clean place on the whole bike! Haha

That’s a cool little USB port, does the hatch close? I’ve never seen one that doesn’t ride higher, are they everywhere or is this one special? Do tell!!
