    honestly...neither...i'd want pro team!
    They actually both look pretty good...I'd go the black...i know they never look that good in pictures, but having looked at the black (well grey) 675 in person it looked fab, so I'd imagine the mtb would be the same...but that still couldn't win me over pro team
    All the gear and no idea.

    That's right! In person the black is more of a dark matte grey. I also have a Look 595. Maybe that's what you would like to see...

    Ah very nice, I did at one point think about getting a 675 and a 920i...but then I didn't, almost got a 695, but availability and costs... so (since we are thread drifting from mtb's) ended up with:

    Very nice road bike!!! Just saw a 795 a few weeks ago and for a short moment I thought "must have". But as you said costs...

    Yeah, 795's are awesome (but the dollars $17,000 here in Australia), got to test ride some 695's also great. Happy with the 675, its a better bike than I am a rider.

    The bike is tank and has never once let me down. The frame rides great and takes a beating. I'm looking forward to updating the cockpit some, especially with some wider bars.

    Just finished fixing this bike up after 25 yrs of neglect. Its a Giant Yukon that I have had forever. I stripped and repainted it, new derailers,grips,controls,tires/tubes,pedals. Hopefully my son will be my sidekick when I go out riding my new 29er.

    Ok. Here's one from last evening. Did a fork swap to remove a low-end suspension fork and replace it with rigid. Pretty sure that gets us violating way too many trends, but the result rides well and the bike is lighter than ever.

    Looks great. Looks really good.

    You just clamped it by the frame for the photos, right? I'm a seatpost clamper myself.

    I sort of did for the pics, but one draw back from the dropper post is its probably not a good idea to clam on the inner post that moves up and down. I could let the whole post out a little and clamp to that but if I forget and hit the button for the dropper post it will probably pull the cable out.

    Hadn't thought about that. Good point. Pretty soon there won't be anything left on our bikes to clamp on to. LOL.

    Your bike just looks so nice. You did really well in coordinating those red accents. My builds are usually cacophonies of clashing colors.

    2006 Stumpjumper HT

    My trusty Stumpy! In all these years I've never found a frame that fits my style of riding quite as perfectly as this one does and so it's been my main bike ever since. Bit of a ding in the downtube but apart from that she's doing pretty damn well for her age

    I suppose it's fairly long by today's standards, it's a 110. But it's more to make up for the fact I'm 6'0 with gangly limbs riding a 17" frame (hence the ridiculous seat post length too)!
    I suppose it'd have made more sense to buy a larger frame and use a shorter stem for more responsive steering, but I didn't really consider that back in '06 and I like to be low on the bike
    Anyway, it's what I'm used to these days!

    'Mon the Scots!

    The Slackline is designed for up to a 160, and the Sektor only goes up to 150, so I doubt it.

    Most long travel hardtails look like that, not many around though, so I guess people aren't used to it visually. Nice bike!

    Edit: And I never posted a pic of my 2015 Commencal Meta SX HT, so here that is:



    Yes, I need to cut the steerer...

    I don't know about you but the guy in the video was riding like a d***. Only a matter of time before he piles into someone walking around a corner or something. I only hope he comes off worst.

    Videos like that are just annoying as the guy doesn't have great skill, he's just riding recklessly. It's idiots like him that get bikes banned and cyclists hated.

    ^ I love seeing those Bianchi SSs, and a steel one to boot.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I see here is the place to support the 26" bikes...

    Two month ago I built this Proceed MIA 26" (enduro), with RockShox Revelation 150mm and XT/XTR 9 speed; here in Pachacamac, Lima, Perú.

    There are some really nice bikes here! Although I don't really prefer any wheel size, in most cases 26" bikes still have the best looks IMO.
    I recently finished my first "from zero" build and I'm as happy as... a biker with a new bike!

    The frame is a Merida, drivetrain is 1X10, rear derailleur is XT Shadow and everything else is great as well. Crankset is originally a 3X Shimano LX but converted it to 1X.

    Cheers!

    Here are my only two 26er vintage mountain bikes, my only other bike is my oldest bike 1988 Trek steel frame road bike with Shimano 105 group.




    My oldest 26er is my vintage 1995 Cannondale F1000 which I bought brand new in '95, it's a medium 17 inch frame size which I mostly use every day and for technical trails because the frame size is slightly smaller for me, it's easier to maneuver in tight areas.
    Here are some upgrades highlights that I made in '96-'97:
    XT front mech
    XT V Brakes
    Avid brake levers
    SACHS Power Grip Extreme twist shifters (first gen small size grip)
    KORE flat aluminum handlebar
    Wheelset is now HUGI-DT Swiss hubs, Mavic 217 rims (28 spokes front 32 rear), and Titanium spokes (now shown but I will update this pic later)
    Tires are old IRC Mythos XC
    Pedals are combination flat on one side clipless on the other side

    I did remove the bar ends because I don't do all day riding and don't have any hills nearby. I've got another spare LP Composites short carbon fiber-Kevlar bar ends just in case. No more upgrades planned for this bike just some new Kenda general purpose tires.




    My other one is another Cannondale 1996 speed yellow bought it brand new in '96 ordered the large 19 inch size frame, HeadShok suspension fork, CODA stem, and CODA 900M Hollow Crank crankset from my local bike shop. Then slowly built it and completed it a year later in '97.
    Some component highlights:
    Shimano XTR group
    XTR V Brake with ceramic pads
    Bontrager Titanium flat handlebar
    SACHS Power Grip Extreme twist shifters (2nd gen larger size grip)
    Paul Component Engineering Love brake levers
    Syncros Titanium seat post
    Selle Italia Flite Kevlar Titanium seat
    Wheelset is a custom HUGI-DT Swiss rear hub 32 spokes, CODA-DT front hub 28 spokes, DT Swiss Revolution spokes, Sun rims with ceramic brake side surfaces.

    My "2006" Stumpjumper!

    "2006" because the frame is the only existing original part But genuinely the sweetest frame I've ever ridden. So good I've bought a second! Just recently fitted the Forks so weighed it today with the luggage scales on my lunchbreak. 21.5 lbs soaked in rain, not too shabby for a 10 year old frame!

    I test rode Santa Cruz, specialized, and others, but didn't like the way they felt to me, found a new mc fury frame on eBay, a couple of years ago, and bought it. It rides great, well balanced.

    My brand new 26'er Soma Analog.

    Post your 26er Pics-analog.jpg

    It was time to move on from my '97 GTS LTS-1 full suspension. I had upgraded that bike several times over the years, including adapting it to disc brakes. Since I had a perfectly good set of wheels I decided to look for a 26'er frame.

    Soma has discontinued this model, and is selling the remaining stock at a slightly reduced price. I actually purchased this from a shop who sells through Amazon at a lower price than what Soma was selling at.

    It was time to replace my fork, so I sourced a fork from Chain Reaction in the UK that would work with a 1 1/8" straight head-tube and 9mm QR front hub and 26" wheel. It is getting harder to locate a good quality fork that fits those specs...the manufacturers still make them but nobody seems to have them in stock.

    The rest of the parts I already had on the GT so I just moved them over to this frame. Been out several times to dial in the fit, making adjustments to everything.

    One of the things I like about this frame are the adjustable/replaceable sliding dropouts. Many of the other Soma frames use this system, Surly is now producing some of their frames with a replaceable dropout, and Salsa is selling some of their bikes with a similar system. I have options with the stock parts to run geared or single speed. This dropout is compatible with Paragon Machine Works sliding dropout parts, so I can change to a Rohloff internal geared hub, a 142x12 hub if I ever get a through-axle wheelset, or whatever Paragon comes up with for this style of dropout.

    I built this bike up to work well with the types of riding I am doing now. It can just as easily ride a day-long epic as it can adapt for commuting. Once of the main uses for this is when I travel with my wife when she visits clients across the state of California...in the mornings she drops me off on the way to the client and I will ride the trails wherever we are at and then meet her at the hotel in the evening. The drop bars are good for these types of all day rides, some of which require time spent on the pavement as well as fire road and singletrack.

    Love the feel of the Tange Prestige steel. I am looking forward to long days in the saddle on my obsolete beast.

    This old GT is my baby. It's a 1999 xcr-3000. Surprisingly to me the I-drive system works as well as most modern full suspension systems, but it's a lot heavier. This photo was taken back when I was still building it, and since then I've replaced the fork. The bike's pretty heavy at 32 pounds, but I found a ridiculously small 20 tooth small chain ring. Problem solved. The only original part left now is the rear shock, and it's time is coming.

    Voodoo Hoodoo......

    My first MTB in alot of years ! Hunted down a new 2013/14 model a few weeks ago because of the great reviews because of good frame, Raidon forks etc at this price-point......

    I've already added DMR V8 pedals, Madison Flux seat, ODI grips, Michelin Country Rock tyres and have today ordered a Sixpack Menace shorty stem.

    My new ride. Found the frame online from a shop in Seattle, wife surprised me and bought it for me. Spent the winter building it up. Rides amazingly well, my first carbon frame. Have even talked about ditching the epic in favour of solely riding it (won't because I'll even find a carbon epic 26 to replace it with when I want a full suspension again).

    Damn, that's my dream bike right there. Full-suspension, long travel, single chain-ring, dropper seat-post. Awesome bike, man.

    I posted this in the vintage section, but thought I'd share some 26" love here too.

    I picked this up as a commuter project. I had the wheel set, seat, cog, and still have the drive train and bars to add. I'm now waiting on a 1" to 1 1/8" quill step adapter and a new stem I have on order, and then need to get new brakes. Then my SS steed will be finished, at least for now.

    Any idea if this frame will accommodate disc brakes? I don't have a pic of the other side, but I think you can see enough with this one? Maybe?

    this frame is rim-brake only, doesn't have discbrake mounting tabs.

    Didn't think so, but wanted to ask to be sure. Was leaning v-brakes regardless, but now it's certain. Thanks!

    Trek 6000 2009, Nothing too special but she's been through a lot.

    Looking at upgrading to FS at the end of the season and I'm leaning towards the Devinci Dixon RS (26!) or the Kona Precept DL. I'd like to stick with the 26er but there aren't many options NEW.

    Cheers!

    I built this up early last fall and have been riding it since. It was a previously unbuilt, new 2001 Schwinn Homegrown. 2001 was the last of the Homegrowns and was the only HG to have the IS disc brake tabs on the drop out. The frame weighs in at 2.9 lbs with the ICBM headset. I built it as a SS and it currently weighs in at 20.2 Lbs. My new CK/Stans tubeless wheel set will be finished on Wed. and that should shave a half lb. or so. This bike is incredibly nimble and quick. It's essentially the only bike I pull off the wall anymore.

    How do you like this bike? I'm toying with the idea of buying one of the 2012 frames on eBay.

    Lovin it so far. I noticed the 2012 design is different though so my opinion might mean squat.
