    I like that colour. I had a car that colour and I never got tired of it.

    I must admit I prefer it when the rear triangle is the same colour as the rest of the bike, I just think it looks more coherent.

    Yeah, the polished rear end really stands out now that everyone's riding matte black rigs, but I still love this girl. She's getting ridden tomorrow.

    My frame is anodized. Truth is mine hasn't been ridden enough. Both of my kids (8 and 4) are now riding two wheels so my fresh look is about to get beat.......

    Been riding an old (but swell) Fisher hardtail for the last several years, figured it was about time to step it up a little, just got this Giant Reign and am looking forward to finding my way around a FS, disc brakes, and long travel.

    I set up these new Derby tubless with some new Fire XC Pro 2.1s. But for some reason they just pop off the rims anywhere from 25 to 35psi. So, I tore them apart and installed some WTB Mutano race 2.4s. So far so good at 25 psi. All I have to do is switch the cassette from my other wheel and make sure the rear derailer is adjuster properly.

    "HOLY EXPOSED SEATPOSTS BATMAN"
    Curious how tall you are and what size frame? That's a lot of exposed seatpost on both of those bikes.

    BTW nice bikes.

    Well, the white one is 17.5" which could be something like a Medium in Specialized sizes, somehow I'm in between Medium and Large (I'm 1.8 meters tall) and I tried the L Specialized enduro and it felt really comfortable, specially with the length between the seat post and the handlebar, I feel it more natural when riding and with the white one somehow I feel like if I have to hunch to be riding. Yeah, exposed seatposts but the riding position on my enduro really improved to what I was used to in the white one.

    Thanks!

    So if my math is correct you are slightly shy of 5' 11". Which probably does put you in between a medium and a large. But by looking at the amount of seat post exposed maybe a large would have been a better fit. If you don't mind I'm curious of the measurement of exposed seat post? Measure from top of frame collar to seat camp rails.

    Possibly long legs and a short torso? That would make the med possibly better if ETT is too long, even with a short stem. Although, that would make him all legs...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    It's about 9.5 inches (26 cm) and yes, my two Specialized ones the 650b and the 26er are L size now... I've seen people with Enduros and their posts are quite exposed also.

    It's amazing to me when you skim this thread. All the high quality 26'ers still out in use. Why buy a new clown wheeled bike when you can ride a high quality fun ride for years and years. Such as what's displayed here in front of us. It cracks me up how many people that buy into the new hype every year. Money wasted every year that could have been spent elsewhere. Such as a mtb vacation or family matters.

    Well, to be fair, a lot of people buy a larger wheeled bike as their first real MTB. Or, they are replacing something that needs to be replaced. It's their money and they have the choice as to what size wheels to buy. It's good that we have choices.

    Sometimes, when I spend too much time reading about bikes on the internet and not, you know, actually riding bikes, I get to feeling like my bike is old-fashioned.

    I mean, it's got a heavy coil fork.


    It's got a 3x9 drivetrain (ewww!).


    It's got these tiny little wheels.


    But I have managed to strap a few modern parts on her.




    I'm not a "26 or die" person, but man oh man does this bike put a big smile on my face each and every time.

    Nickel 150/140 with Alfine8 internal gear hub.

    I'd be down with 27.5, but all the bikes have thru axle dropouts now. Internal gear hubs have a non-removeable axle. I'd rather have no derailleur than 27.5. Plus, the Nickel is a joy to ride.

    I LOVE 26" wheels, be it for trail riding, commuting, or just cruising the mean streets of North Dakota. Here's my 2013 Cannondale Trail with 2.1 Kenda's on it. It's plush, but nimble.

    This was my 1995 Specialized Hard Rock that I sold last fall. Was a great bike with a few updates to keep it fresh, now being used as a SS by a fellow MTBRer who bought it from me.

    Its really obvious how exposed an RD would be on a bike with a swingarm like that.

    you said:

    Shimano SLX hubs with WTB i23 frequency rims (laced up by universal cycles)

    then you need to finish the build yourself. No wheels bought from a store or mass produced will be good enough. You simply need to go over it yourself.

    I trust the builder at universal far more then I trust myself.

    I plan on playing with lacing and spoke tension on my old wheel set. But for now I have no experience with building or truing.

    Depends on the spouse. So far mine has been more or less fine with me keeping three bikes in the kitchen, rebuilding forks on the dining room table, washing muddy bikes in the shower, and cleaning greasy cassettes in the bathroom sink. Assuming I clean up after myself.

    Luckily for our continued sanity we moved out of that tiny apartment and bought a house, so no more of that.

    Haha, only once. Kept riding until it was too far below freezing to use the outside taps, wanted to wash it before I put it away for the winter. I wouldn't recommend doing that on a regular basis for a variety of reasons.

    Just before swap of the rigid for the sus and mid ride. A co-worker asked me recently when I might consider selling, how about...never.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Finished the build today.....now if the weather starts cooperating I might actually be able to go ride it soon!

    Though I still do need to pick up some Stan's sealant and find a compressor to get the tire bead to seat correctly.

    Here's mine old Schwinn Moab. 1997, I think. I have since upgraded much and it is currently an SS convert, but I still slap the gears on for winter, every once-in-a-while.

    I'll play.

    Custom little Wraith play bike by my buddy Daren in N. Conway NH. Sub-15" chainstays but will fit a 2.4" tire, EBB, super tight. Gets changed up into all sorts of fun incarnations. So wrong it's right.







    08ish Sinister Shenanigan. 165/170 rig. (Basically a Devinci Hectik.) Fun bike; used it as my main bike for a pretty long stretch and it's a solid all-arounder that can easily take a lot more than I could ever throw at it.





    05/06 Sinister DNA. Frank the Welder built DJ/park bike. I can't begin to do this bike justice.





    6" Wraith Sofaking custom w/a scavenger build. Single pivot, idler, floating brake, my current favorite. If you can't have a good time on this bike, you have no soul.






    Way old pic, but this frame is still around as a pumptrack/DJ build. Aztech Flying Polack, basically a steel P-bike with horizontal drops and a derailleur hanger. Something another friend built. Ran it as a trail bike for a season and it held it's own. Damn near indestructible; another keeper.




    I still have this frame around and plan to revive it for my son (he's about ready to move up from 24" on mtbs). Another Frank the Welder creation, (along with Mickey from Spooky). Usually ran it with an air adustable platform air shock and set up as a trail bike. That turnbuckle gizmo along with a couple different shock mount positions, and a little fiddling, you can run it as a ~110-140 travel and adjust the angles infinitely between high and tight to wicked slack. The most 'tweakable' bike I've ever owned or probably come across.




    Still got this 95 DB Axis, Logic 853 tubes, Breezer drops, 1 of 500. about as close as you can get to a real Ritchey. Still got the Spin wheels and all. Could never bring myself to ditch it.




    Not mine in the pic, but I have one of these running too. Same color and similar build. 06 Turner DHR



    Besides those, the wife has a 06 Enduro, the kid inherited a sick 09 or '10 carbon Mojo SL complete from my father (who went to the dark side and built himself a Niner for his 70th b'day), usually have a few random loaners/giveaways looking to be re-homed, even got one of these collecting dust in the shed - 87 Bridgestone.

    It always amazed me how similar Ventanas were to Turners back in the day. Basically the same frames. This DH version a bit tweaked and a little different than Turner. But their other models were almost identical.

    Abe nice ride by the way.

    Thanks Dirtjunkie! Even though its design is now sorta old school I enjoy riding it and feel really comfortable in it. They only thing that felt a little bit off at first was the wee bit extra height on the bb, but I got used to it pretty quickly. Here is a recent video of me having some fun with "LA BRUJA"!

    Here is my 2011 5-Spot. Still a great bike. I have extensively ridden 27.5" bikes recently and can say, there is not much difference - so the 5-Spot stays.

    Recent Pic of my 1994 Univega w/ AMP fork. Just dropped a shorter stem on it and 700mm bars. Before that I was still running 580 bars and a 140mm stem...my god this has transformed this bike into one I want to ride again!!

    2012 trek fuel. She's got several years left in her before I break down and replace her with a remedy. Everything but the frame new within the past 6 months, lots of miles but still a lot left.

    Some awesome rigs in here! Mine's nothing like some of these, but it can still outride me.

    I didn't know Specialized had a lifetime warranty on frames until I went in to a shop and talked to a friend of mine. Had a early 90s RockHopper A1fs that cracked the head tube. Luckily it was before they discontinued 26" RH frames...asked for black but they only had the "Pro" colors left which were not on the US web site. Had to immediately buy disc wheels and brakes plus a new BB just to get rideable. Slowly upgraded the rest since then.
    So my "free" frame ended up costing about as much as a new RH would have but at least it has better parts, and was ground-up built in my shop. Everything new (found on deals) but the fork.
    Fox F100RLC 32 (ebay, repainted and rebuilt here)
    SLX trigger shifters
    XT rear and cassette
    X7 front
    Roval wheels
    Panaracer Soars
    Tektro Dracos
    EA50 bars, stem, seatpost (newer, transferred from old frame)
    Wellgo M138
    Need a new crankset and saddle and it'll be good for a while.

    Sycip Diesel, frame is a few years old but still in great shape. Everything else is new except for my reliable Speedplay Frog pedals.
    Guess what? I got a fever, and the only prescription is more Singlespeed!!!

    Thanks. Reasons I want to change them: I'd like to shed some weight (they're old square taper Aceras) and more importantly with my 29" inseam I'd like to shorten to a 170. But i don't want those things badly enough to spend the money on them...yet.

    BlueSky has SLX sets for $109 which is tempting...maybe we'll see what's out there next spring. I like to do a little something each year. Or if I ride enough maybe I'll pull the trigger on a full suspension frame or complete instead. Time will tell.

    Just picked up this frame to do a budget FS build for my son. Moving over most of the parts over from his old bike (it was a xsmall frame, so moving him up to a small). I am trying to nurse the old SID Race shock along. The negative chamber was leaking badly but after disassembling it and lubing everything it is holding air now. We will see how it holds up to its first ride before I try to find some new o-rings that fit.

    I'd certainly have been stoked if I had a bike like that when I started riding! Shame the medium 5spot was a bit big for her, but this should be a great starting point.

    Finally got a good picture of my 91 Trek 950, almost entirely stock. WTB rocket V saddle, wellago flats and Salsa QRs. Besides obvious wear items, the rest is still as the day I bought it 24 years ago although I think I'm going to change out the stem and bars to something a little wider and more modern. Still ride the bike once a week during summer and fall. After I get the cockpit a little refreshed I'm thinking some wheels built to fit a 10speed cassette and then going 2x10.

    Trek Slash 7 2013 - My daily ride! I do about 25km a day just commuting, then hit the hills at the weekend when I can. I must have done ~4k km on the bike so far overall.

    Upgrades from stock:

    - Shimano Zee brakes (original Avid Elixir 5 were awesome when the worked...)
    - Rockshox Reverb Stealth seatpost
    - Hope SS GXP bottom bracket (original lasted ~ 10 months)
    - 1x10 setup from Oneup Components. 30t n/w at the front, and 11-42 cassette. KMC chain.
    - Bontrager Montrose Comp saddle
    - Shimano Saint pedals

    Summer spec tires: Bontrager XR3 team issue front, Bontrager XR2 team issue rear (both tubeless)
    Winter/DH/bike park tires: Maxxis HRII

    Been thinking of putting on some wider 800mm bars, and have been toying with the idea of a Pike or Talas (Dual position) for a while to help on the commute, but I'd have to invest in 2 new wheels sets (I have 20mm axle) so always put it on hold.

    Overall, I *love* this bike - my road bike and backup 650b HT get ridden, but this bike is the one I can never wait to ride.

    My single speed commuter, built around a On-One Inbred.

    Tires are tubeless Schwalbe Kojak 2.0. 32/12 ratio on the gear. My first build and I'm very happy with the result!

    Nothing fancy, but it's been a good bike and it's seen a lot of (ab)use. Really, the only upgrades I've done to it are the pedals, grips and tires.

    Fantastic! How nice does that lugged True Temper frame ride? Have the same frame on my 1991 970 and pretty much all stock except for the bars. Couldn't handle 20.5" wide bars. Had to add a few inches. Good to see another lugged singletrack being loved. They built those bikes right.
    Get out of the gutter and onto the mountain top.
