Jared Downs's Bio

East coast born and raised, but in the fall of 2013 I packed up my Ford Focus and drove west.

It was time to break away from that bland office life I constantly found myself in. I was in need of some time with the outdoors finding powder, going for hikes and building up some climbing skills.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I swapped an 18T on my Yeti SB5,5 for a 54T and am mega happy with the faster engagement.

This is super easy to install. No tools required if you have a quick release axle.

Just make sure to go easy on the grease. Too much grease is a bad thing. And with the finer teeth on the 54T, too much grease can cause the teeth to wear out faster.

For applying grease, try finding a small/fine paint brush to get an even coating of it in the hard to get to parts.

I've had one of the prior generation dromlite bags and now this one. The old one is still going strong. I'm a big fan of the three lid options for filling, drinking, and pouring.
