    This is a great set up, how do you shift? Can't see a lever.

    That picture looks very like Scotland, except the hill in the background is too flat.

    Scotland is great, I must admit. The trick is finding ways to get a bike out into the wilds. That picture is actually in a trail centre near Perth, the trails are very rugged and natural though. Once you go properly off the beaten track it's harder to find continuous ridable paths to where you want to go. Going for miles then ending up in a bog is not funny!

    It's not fun, it's just a pain in the butt. Especially when the choice is going back the way you came or dragging the bike across a bog or through dense trees, or both at the same time! I'm very reluctant to leave the house without a clear plan.

    Sorry bridgestone14, I meant to say a '97. I don't even know if bontrager was around back then. I at least know they weren't making mountain bikes back then. Thanks for catching that.

    I use a bar end shifter. I didn't have all gears available with the 9 speed freewheel so I just replace it with an 11-34 tooth 8-speed. I'd like to upgrade to a dunno Hub up front and an 11 speed in the rear sometime in the near future.

    My Apollo Taos C, I don't see much about this bike on the net.

    Upgraded the fork to Marvel Comp 120mm because the bike came with a Dart2, also made it 1x9. The juicy 3 brakes have been replaced since the pic was taken, even cheap deore brakes are 10,000 times better!
    It feels nice and light now.

    Mind you I rode my daughters Liv Tempt 4 yesterday, heavier with lower end spec and 27.5" wheels compared to my bike but I still think it was faster, just steadier and rolled over stuff easier, except bb is lower so more pedal strikes. So maybe I don't mind the idea of 27.5" wheels as much these days, but this is my baby....

    I love how all these awesome bikes are not able to roll anymore since 27.5/29rs came on the scene. Crazy how that works. The 26rs wheels all just seized up and no longer roll.

    Right, thats what the newbies would like to think....ha ha. old school only here!!!!

    "new" C'dale M900 frame 96'

    I just auctioned this incredible, silly colored frame on eBay. Probably m500 or M900 from 1996. I don't know what to do with the crazy golden color. In this form, I would not push the bike either among the horses to the carousel...

    Until the frame arrives, I will examine the serial number. I hope it will be M900, yellow would be the easiest to overpaint the frame.
    Happy me - now I have the frame with rigid P-Bone and head fork tube 1/1,8'' !

    "new" C'dale M900 frame 96'

    Plan is to use Shimano SLX 2x10 groupset, Avid 2.0 Digit brakes, Mavic Crossroc UST wheels and some Ritchey WCS carbon parts (seatpost, handlebars...) to built fresh, reliable and light commuter. (town + easy tracks).
    Looking for some fast Ritchey WCS tubeless tyres. Saddle must be F'izi:k Tundra 2, my butt has its own head ...

    That gold C-dale might be kinda cool if you masked off some logos on the downtube and resprayed it leaving the gold as a sort of reverse decal.

    Yes, 26'' is ornamental now.

    Yesterday I made the mistake of taking my display bike outside. It was going ok until I found myself speeding towards a root on the trail. I could've died!! Thankfully my brakes are good, they are specified as 27.5 compatible, which saved me from death or horrible injury I have no doubt.

    Once I'd walked my bike back to the car I cried until I composed myself enough to drive home. I may take up carpet bowls.

    Just put black cannondale and "model numbers" on the gold. Looks to be a good paint job on it...The red pops with the gold too! classic anodized bling for a classic awesome bike!

    Itís gone, soon, Iím debating whether or not I treat myself to a new dedicated off road bike next year. If I do, this becomes an around town bike.

    I like seeing a bike, any bike being used. Even if it has a kickstand, and reflectors. What I can't stand is a nice bike with a rusty chain and dust on the saddle.

    I think a dropper is in my not-so-distant future. How do you like it?

    For a stealth option I use a 6 inch strip of red reflector tape on my red bikes seat post down tube so drivers behind get a warning Im out and about.

    Your silver bike would suit the grey silver reflector tape they sell , stuff works uber well.

    I use lights when i know I'll be riding in the dark but often I'm out with only that reflector strip on my bike when Im booking it home late.

    I put this one together before summer started, bit and pieces from other bikes, the way it rides is simply incredible, it's not going away any time soon, hopefully this winter I can give her 2.4 tires and a 10 speed vs 9 speed
    It is so go to ride that I will be keeping for a long time.

    Yesterday I set a new best time (for me) on a main segment on my local trail on my 650b FS bike... so today I went and beat it on my 26er HT. Boo Yah!

    If you ever want to switch to disc, its easy on these. Take off left drop out, jig it up, and cut it out of iirc 1/4in alu plate.

    I like it a lot when I'm riding hard. Right now I'm rebuilding a fitness base so I'm not using it as much, but when I was riding a lot I used it a lot. There are more options for 27.2 out now too (if that's what you have).

    I have flashing LEDs, reflective tape is a great idea!! I used to be a motorcycle tech, so I have some red reflective wheel stripe left over, thanks for the idea!!

    2008 Jamis Dakar XC. Paid $499 back in 2010 for the bike. I have installed hydraulic brakes and switched the 3x8 to a 1x9 drivetrain using Shimano Deore parts. Will be replacing the bent seat post soon with a dropper

    Mongoose Rockadile 26+

    Post your 26er Pics-img_9800.jpg
    Hello, new to the mtbr forum.

    Here is my 1994 Mongoose Rockadile; 2nd owner; mine since 1995. Bike has gone through a number of iterations. Original build was unsuspended, flatbar (with purple anodized bullhorns!). Added Rock Shock Indy C fork a couple years later. Dropbar setup was done about 6 years ago. Most recently rolling on 26" x 2.1" Duro Rocky Wolf gumwalls. Wanted to fatten the goose a bit, so now sporting 26" x 2.8" WTB Ranger tires. Just installed the tires yesterday, rode them on the trail today; they feel great. My son rolls a 29er on his high school MTB team, but I've not yet strayed from my 26'er. Thanks.

    It has been pretty good. I broke the frame (chainstay) this season. My 5 year manufacturers warranty had expired so I had to drop some $$$ for a new rear triangle.

    DMVJeep, was it the drive side chainstay and close to dropout where the crack happened?

    That was exactly where it happened! I have a friend who broke his chainstay as well on a 08 Jamis, but I believe his was non-drive side. I tried to reason with Jamis since it seemed like it is a common flaw, but they wouldnít budge since I had the bike for seven years. I highly doubt I will buy another Jamis FWIW.

    1999 IF Deluxe

    Took a glamour shot last week of the old girl, '99 IF Deluxe, first year for disc mounts. Bought the frame new and have kept it fairly up to date.

    Thanks, I also have a 1999 Homegrown Factory XTR BB red with the 90 MM White Brothers shock, and a 1996 HG but I am not able to upload any more pictures. I know some sites require so many posts in order post more pics. Maybe I can upload when I get more posts? I love your bike collection as well.

    I think you're on the Homegrown Facebook group?

    Where are you finding the White Bros forks? I'd like to find one at some point for one of my bikes.

    Thank you. I've got a 1994 S-Works M2 that I've bought since then. Should have all the parts to put it together in the next couple weeks. Should be a fun ride.

    2012 SC Heckler

    '12 SC Heckler...XL frame. Been an awesome reliable and fun bike. Since new have done 3 trannys and 2 wheelsets but frame has been 'clyde worthy' (6'4" / 220lbs).

    I just picked up a '18 Kona Process 153 AL/DL (27.5) but will still ride the Heckler from time to time...I have all parts to convert to 1X9 (winter project).

    Snow Goose

    New Year's Eve ride along the Truckee River (outside Tahoe City, CA). Dry winter so far, there should be more snow this time of year. Still, a beautiful setting to ride.

    2014 Pivot Firebird XX1. Love this bike. After all the discussions about 26er, 27.5er and 29er, Iíve had no problems staying right behind all the new bigger wheel bikes. It climbs right over and down the rocks. Tons-O-Fun.

    I've always liked fitting the nicer modern kit on an old good frame better than trying to stay 100% period correct. Better yet, when "timeless" parts are used that haven't changed much for a decade or more of production.

    Dude, sweet looking ride. The best part is you can use the front der routing to hook up a dropper post. Solid work with the brake adapter too, where did you get that?

    I have seen them on ebay, just didn't think you could still get them also I always thought you had to run 180mm rotor when you use one. Looks like he isn't which is good to know.

    I think you can still buy bushings for the NRS?

    I didn't know you got them with bearings. My friend has two NRS bikes and both have bushings.
