    I converted to disc brakes recently too! It really brings out the bikes full potential. Is that an old Fox Vanilla? I still have my 16 year old Rock Shox Deluxe rear shock on the back, but it still works somehow so I'll just keep on rolling. I think the I-drive is a timeless design.

    Finished my 26" SS Specialized HardRock build this week and really like the ride! I've commuted to work twice this week, took it out another day after work, and fall in love with the plush tires more each day.

    My first full suspension. Can't wait to start adding things and seeing it grow! It'll do for now, though.

    2012 Stumpjumper FSR Evo

    Lots of upgrades over the last 18 months,latest 1 is the absoluteBlack spiderlees chainring,smooth and quiet.
    Over summer I usually put my Specialized S-Works Capatin 2.2 and Ground Control 2.3 tyres on but loving the On-One Smorgasbord 2.25 Trail Extreme and Chunky Monkey 2.4 Trail Extreme that I bought for winter so they are staying on,for a heavier and softer tyre they roll pretty well,and the Eckso sidewall protection gives more confidence with lower pressures,not that I had any problems with the S-Works tyres though.

    Updated my old Iron Horse 7 Point 3 after trying to sell it for a while. Added Spank bars, Chromag chainring for looks. Updated the geo a bit, Works Components 2 degree angled headset and a Marz Roco WC that's 1/4" shorter eye to eye (but same stroke) to slack it out a bit and lower it a little more. Would like to get rid of the old Super T for a Marz 66, RS Totem, or Fox 36 in the near future. Threw on some old Nevegals for now, but have a fresh set of Minions waiting to go on.

    2012 kona cadabra. updated the coil magic link shock to the G3 air link so it doesn't squeak, wider bars, swapped the Easton XC for hope/flows when I couldn't find any Easton parts in aus to replace the freehub. have wondered about converting to 1*something but the triple suits my grinding ways. yep, triple, tubes, 26", and happy that way.
    As for the pic, there's worse places to sit and feel a bit sorry after going OTB than the Thredbo trails.

    This is my 2011 Stumpjumper, great trail bike. It's running a 1x10, soon to be a 1x11, with an XD-15 BB. Swapped out the brain for an RP23, flow rims with a 2.3 Purgatory up front and a 2.2 captain control in the back. Command post and Renthal carbon bars.

    2010 Gary Fisher Advance G2 frame 15.5'' 6061T6 gold series aluminum , i have custom built this bike from the ground up, had a few different setups since it was a new frame , but this is by far the best it has ever been, about 6000km in its life so far although it has some typical war wounds most well used xc frames tend to get , no dents or cracks and it is still a very solid/stiff frame, Raceface crank set, chain ring, seat post & shimano 8spd cassette, shimano deore xt rear mech & shifter with jaguar L3 cable. KMC X8 light chain. hydro brakes , front : avid juicy 5 with 180mm HS1 floating rotor, rear:avid elixor 3 with 160mm HS1 standard rotor. I ride it every day rain or shine , night or day , off road trails or paved roads, occasionally with a full set of panniers and rack for the long tours , high power 5000 lumen (modified led driver) solar storm x2 headlights for the late night trail rides. i truly enjoy riding this bike

    Hehe, finally this thread came along. I hope they continue making nice 26" specific parts so we don't run out of tires and rims at least.

    the light is great, a bit much for city rides but more than bright enough to ride trails at night, battery life is good, about 2.5hrs on high and up to 6hrs on low with a 4pc (18650) 8.4v 6500mah battery pack. plus it was ridiculously cheap in comparison to the big brand equivalent. complete kit with battery pack was under
    $25 Canadian imported from Hong Kong.

    Recently moved to Cranbrook and finally had a chance to check out some of the local trails; the "community forest" is less than a km from where I'm renting a place, so it works out great! Nice trails as well; feels wierd biking on trails that don't consist of loose sand and rock. Traction? This is new!

    It's not legit until you have pink booties for your cranks. Extra credit for pink Ergon grips.

    You really want to mess with me? Road

    I add this for more variety. Really neat to see so many iterations of the 26" wheel. I firmly feel that as an artistic piece, the 26 offers by far the superior visual experience and the offerings shown by many submitters here are a credit to the bicycle craft over the decades.

    Brraaaaaap!

    I simply am impressed with the variety of bikes being shown throughout this whole thread. Rigid, Hard Tail, Full Suspension. You can see Development of the MTB bike, fads and pride in these bikes. Frames developed interesting forms to fit rear shocks, Top Tube Angles varied, became longer. The engineering base was developed on this wheel size, and designers went to the trouble to make them look good.

    Does that make sense to you?

    Eric

    PS I was not referring to my bike in that statement.

    Gday Guys
    Just new to the site but have been riding for awhile now and really enjoying it again.My 26" is a GT Outpost 2009 ,I think, I bought it as a rolling frame and with some TLC and plenty of goodies it hasn't come up too bad.

    I've got two currently, am likely going to sell the hard tail though as it hasn't seen much use since I got the voodoo.

    Up first is my Vodoo Canzo, I believe it is a 2011 model. Recently bought from a friend for a very reasonable price. It's my first full susser and I'm pretty much converted.

    Post your 26er Pics-001.jpg

    Second is my specialized hardrock, I believe the frame is off a 2007 bike, I resprayed/vinyled it and built it up from there.

    It's only in 9mmQR? My bike is currently running 15mm. Doh!

    It's one of those things.. I'm adding a new 10 speed rear mech and going wide range 11-42t.. but after that, I really think that new fork is diminishing returns. On my local trails, the drops are never huge and I've been fine so far on these F-Series 32's. Just put new seals, wipers and oil in them this summer. I may rock the bike as it is and save the money for the next bike... But man new forks look so good lol

    I was a little hesitant because it is only available in 11/8 non tapered head tube with a 9mm quick release. I am using a DT Swiss bolt on style skewer. I truly do not feel any difference in stiffness compared to my 15mm through axle on my 29er.

    My original fork was a 6,000 mile PUSHed tuned F series 32 mm......This new fork is in a whole different league in comparison with the adjustability and small bump compliance. I will keep upgrading this bike as time goes on....It's to good to replace. (Plus it's got a lifetime frame warranty)

    Nice one! Old school indeed. Why not put some wider tires on it? (However this route leads, eventually, to a tubeless wheelset and most modern tubeless rims don't support rim brakes).

    na. ah wont do any of that aside that it is not that cheap.. its against the rules of being old school

    prefer to go out with 2 tubes and a pump

    about wider tires? still looking for a 2.0 front and 1.95 rear for this currently on 1.75 tires both front and rear

    this rig climbs like a mountain goat atm i dont have time to get an official weigh in but i think it is lower that 10kg (just my 2 cents) or 9.5kg with heavy 1.75 tires and tube idk not until i got official weigh in

    1999 Schwinn 4 Banger Bass Boat Blue

    My 1999 Schwinn 4 Banger in Bass Boat Blue.

    Recent build. Wheels are 26" Easton Havoc. I rebuilt them after I blew out 3 spokes on the rear wheel. I ditched the front mech for a 1x9. The drive train is Shimano XT. Brakes are M615.

    Post your 26er Pics-4b-bbb-rside.jpg

    The frame has a some wear spots and battle scars but where can you find cool metallic flake paint like this? (Nowhere because there is probably a pound of paint on this bike! )

    Hmm I got curious about pivot design on that frame and here's what I've found. Images are high resolution, use "Open in new tab" to view them full size.

    Aluminum inserts for what looks like common cartridge radial ball bearings in the carbon seatstays/rocker arm unit:

    (I wonder what keeps the inserts and the carbon together)

    Rocker arm pivot housing:


    Main pivot housing:


    Looks like they never relied on frame itself providing the correct spacing for bearing pair assembly and instead clamped a machined spacer in a split tube. Too bad this practice was phased out in favor of lighter and cheaper to produce designs just like bolt-up suspension fork crowns.


    And here's frame geometry:
