might want to order some bb clips. they are expensive if you want them fast but cheap if you have time. I'm going to see if it can find something that works at the local hardware store today.

Why would he need BB clips on a PF30 BB? The PF30 shell holds the bearings instead of the retaining clips in a BB30 configuration.

I've never had suspension bearings held in with a c-clip, and I definitely advise against locktite.

When I replace suspension bearings, I apply a thin layer of assembly grease. Proper torque should remove play. As a last resort, you could try using some shims/washers if there's play in the bearings at torque.

I've hit 240lbs kitted up on my CS-057 and chinese carbon rims. Small drops, lots of roots, etc. It's holding strong!

Yeah, that's not good.... I'd be working with the seller and demanding a replacement. That's a PayPal dispute if the seller does not remedy the situation.

Hammered on this B A D B O Y E for about 4 hours on Saturday. 34 miles through the woods. Everything was perfect, but at about mile 24 I started hearing some clicking and noticed my rear wheel wasn't dished correctly. "Oh well," I thought. "I'll fix that when I get home. Not like I can do it now!"

I finished the ride, loaded my bike up, drove home and hung the bike up. When I went out to the garage the next day to redish the wheel and problem shoot the clicking noise, I was extremely surprised to find what I found.

The two screws that hold on the derailleur hanger completely fell out! The entire derailleur hanger was just sitting there, held only by the thru axle and chain tension. I have no idea how I was able to ride 10 miles over some pretty rough terrain, but thankfully nothing else broke as a result. I bought some spare hangers with the frame and they came with screws, so I hit them with some Blue Locktite and put them back. Wheel was perfect and the clicking was gone, of course.

I'm looking to buy some bulk hydraulic hoses to keep in my home workshop, and I can't seem to find a clear answer on hose interoperability.

Currently, I have Shimano XT BR-M8000, Shimano RS785, Formula R1, and Guide RSC hydraulic brakes. In short, my question is: do all of these brakes share the same hydraulic hoses?

I believe the answer is yes as long as the inserts are correct.

The "universal" hose in most cases has an outer diameter (OD) of 5.0mm and internal diameter (ID) of 2.1mm

The XT's use the BH90 hose, which has an OD of 5.0mm and ID of 2.1mm.

The RS785s use the BH59 hose with OD 5.0mm and 2.5mm ID (I think? can't find this answer, just know it's slightly larger than the BH90), however many have reported using the BH90s without issue.

The only deviation I can find are Tektro and Hayes brakes that use hoses with 5.5mm OD and 2.5mm ID.

Take care with your stem.
One guy on a french forum had the same and his handlebar was moving by 4 to 5 cm on the extremity due do the lack of stiffness of this carbon stem.

I was super anxious about it at first, but its been rock solid.

Sorry it wasn't clear.
I was referring to this:


That's just a rubber piece included with the Jagwire Mountain Pro Shift kit to prevent cable rub on the frame. No idea what Jagwire calls it.

I love Squirt too.

I've always flirted with the idea of paraffin...i guess I'll give it a go once I get threw some of my current lubes.

I love bb30 and pf30. Little trick I learned from using an eccentric BB for singlespeed... apply a thick coat of Oatey® Great White® Pipe Joint Compound With PTFE around the BB shell where it interfaces with the BB (just don't get it in on the bearing seals or wipe away the excess if you do).

Also, RE: MB01... I'd stay away from anything with polymer inserts. They'll eventually dry out and crack. Get your compliance from your wheels, not a seatstay gimmick.

Just a quick Q: do you have a MB01?

No. Polymer inserts have been around for a very long time though. They've always been prone to the same issues, and it's unfortunate Specialized decided to revive them.

You mean using Oatey's compound instead of Loctite 609 or similar ?

Correct. Oateys is great stuff. Just make sure you don't buy the PVC glue

Thank you for the precise build list.
There are good findings in there. I will reuse it for sure !

What is the little black ring around the shifter cable before it enters the frame ?
I saw it as well on the Jagwire site, but no information there.

I think what you're referring to is actually a part of the frame. If you check pictures of other cs057s it should be the same. I did put a jagwire cable end, but that's hidden. I didn't end up running full-length housing but may in the future.

29er / Bhaalgorn's "Budget" CS-057 Build
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:19:22 AM »
I recently built up a CS-057 using mostly spare (** indicates spare) or budget/used parts from eBay, Craigslist, Aliexpress, etc. Though I did kind of splurge on building a custom carbon wheelset. :) 

Total cost is currently $2,334.48 (includes shipping and tax, price will go down when I sell some things I bought bundled together).

Current weight is just under 22lbs with pedals and bottle cage.
