    Hope my bike is worthy enough to be posted...

    It's a 1999 Giant Rincon SE with a Rockshox xc30 for, new stem and handlebars, and all else stock as of now. This bike has been so awesome and has taken a beating.
    Along with the Giant is my 2003 K2 Attack 3.0 full suspension bike. Not ridden near as much as the Giant since it was my first main bicycle, but still has a place in my heart.

    26'er marching on...

    Did someone mention "tis the season"?

    There's nothing wrong with my current UZZI-SL frame.

    BUT

    I came across something on eBay I couldn't pass up. A NOS "new old stock" UZZI-SL frame identical to one I have. It just arrived and it's brand spanking new. It's been hanging on a bike shop wall as a show piece all these years. A 2K. frame back in the day I picked it up for what people are selling used rear triangles for this frame. My plan is to rebuild my fork through PUSH industries and then switch over my current build to this frame. New frame new shock new pivot point bearing. As you all know my current Intense has lasted me 13 years. This one should have the same longevity. At least get me through a season or two up until I'm ready to get a current frame.



    Could this be the last NOS "new old stock" UZZI-SL left? ^^^

    And here's the frame that's been rocking for 13 years and still going strong. The build that will be moved over to my new frame.

    Thanks, and very cool you've got an original Tracer. Is it still in use?

    Yeah I'm pretty stoked. All these years that I've had my original SL I always had my eyes and ears open for any frames or rear triangles in case my frame ever failed. I've seen used SL frames and used rear triangles but never jumped to buy one. When this popped up I couldn't pass it up. I've never seen a NOS one in the marketplace. I've always loved this bike why not extend the life of it instead of dropping serious coin on a current frame.

    The new frame is an 02' my old one is an 01'. The only change in those two years was the decal set.

    Alas, my frame is relegated to hanging up in the garage. Its a medium, bought it in 2000 not knowing I fit a large. Still had a great time on it for a number of years.

    Nice Shawn. It looks like there's no rear brake. And those wheels wouldn't work with rim brakes anyway. The frame is too old for disk tabs on the frame. So there's no way of setting up a rear brake? I wouldn't ride that on the street any further than maybe to the gym and back.

    Hey, you musta read my other post. Yes, you are right. I may ride it the two miles to the gym. I don't see a problem without a rear brake, as long as the road is dry. And, I don't need a rear brake when I'm on the rollers.

    Rode this '02 Superlight on some fun trails in and around St. George Utah during a recent visit.
    Really enjoyed the nimble handling and quick acceleration. It was very noticeable compared to my 29er.

    Maybe eBay it so it can be brought back to life. Great bikes and still a viable suspension design.

    Here's my other Klein. Its paint is called Sedona Orange, which is hard to capture in photos. It's a 2000 Adroit Pro with a custom-made 1 1/8" headset and a Trigon carbon fork. It gets used for running errands, and depending on which wheels and tires it has, it weighs between 17 and 18 pounds.

    I just got this Kona A. These are pics the PO sent me before the bike arrived. The bike is in the shop right now so I don't have access to it at the moment, and then I'll be going out of town until the new year. I'll take more pics of it then. I have plans for this thing (First build - Needs review).

    That's Skeggs on the SF peninsula. Probably could have waited a few days for the trails to dry a bit, just couldn't help myself. The slimy, greasy mud caused me a few a$$ puckering moments today.

    The only thing crying out for change is the fork. The Judy TT is a very basic sprung fork with elastomer damping. Even a cheap fork today with oil damping will be better. Hydraulic brakes if you want a slightly nicer feel, other than that just ride it :0)

    Before selling my last bike (26" BMC SpeedFox), I put it back to stock. So had a set of wheels, XT Group and a few other quality bits waiting to be ridden again.
    A bargain on a Scott Scale RC frame and Fox Factory Terralogic (both new) had me build this amazing hardtail :

    2015 27.5 frame (crash replacement) with 2011 RS coil Lyric fork and 26" wheels. I'm not sold on the cost to benefit ratio to update to 27.5 wheels and I love the plush ride of the Lyric fork.

    I used to run 2.4" Rubber Queens on my Firebird and the diameter ended up being about the same as a 27.5. Great bike.

    Picked up this 2013 trek remedy 9. Replaced the front tire and just put a valve in the fork to take away the renown squishy feeling that the 2013 trek/fox ctd fork had. Overall it is working great here in SoCal, we will see here soon how it holds up to VA riding.Post your 26er Pics-bike-.jpg

    Nice wheelz!

    I've got a mint set of Spins still hanging around too.
    Gotta get around to building up something retro to sport them one of these days.

    Here's my 1999 Yeti ARC. It's in need of some love, but
    still a great handling bike.

    New toy ... almost built!

    Here's the latest obsession to partner with my hardtail GT ... should be fun once it's done, had to wait for a direct mount stem - final bit of the puzzle. Dropped off to the bike building genius earlier today. Can't wait!

    Nice! I miss my Firebird sometimes. Fun bike.

    I sold it for my SB66, which just got a Pike, and I swapped the Lyrik to my old Iron Horse 7point3, which just won't die (and rides like a heavier Firebird). Need to change the spacers in the Lyrik to put it back at 170mm.

    My first full suspension bike, paid $600.00 on e-bay + about $200.00 for upgrades. Never ridden any another full suspension, so I can't compare it to anything. Rides great to me.

    Here's my 26'er. It's a 2010 Cannondale RZ140. I just finished rebuilding it this morning with XT 1x11 34t chainring and 11-42t cassette, XTR Shifter, Rebuilt RP2 shock, rebuilt Float 32 w/upgraded 15mm thru axle lowers, SLX brakes 180f/160f, and new Stan's Flow EX rims laced to XT hubs.

    I'm nursing a broken thumb at the moment so no riding for now, but I think it's going to work pretty well.

    Sorry but you must be mistaken. How could a 26er possibly be better than a 29er?

    26 ain't dead. I've recently swapped on Pike, Monarch, Reverb, I9/Flow wheels, and RF Sixc bars.

    That's right, 26er ain't dead yet. Yep, got a new 2016 Fox 36 Float 26, new Syntace megaforce 2 50mm stem and Vector 7075 bar, and a Push rear shock volume kit. Oh, and a brand new 2011 Trek remedy 9 frameset. Not sure if I should built it as a back up bike or save it as a future replacement to my 2012 remedy 9.

    Sweet build. I'm liking that lots. I was between and sb6 and the uprising. Both phenomenal bikes, even against brand new 27.5 bikes.

    Thanks. Its odd sometimes sticking with what the industry is trying to kill, but I already had another 26" wheelset and a Lyrik so why not. When I was at Colorado Cyclist ordering my new wheelset, the guys asks 27.5 or 29? He seemed genuinely excited when I said 26.

    I considered a few bikes when I was replacing my Pivot Firebird (2012 26" version) last summer. I like the Evil too, but none around here that I know of. Also considered the Transition Suppressor frame as there's a shop that carries them close to me, but I got a really good deal on a barely used 2014 SB66 frame and being an hour from Golden, its hard to say no to a Yeti.

    Well I went the opposite route most people seem to be taking these days. Selling my 29er HT and picked up this FS. I am really excited about the find.

    Found it about 15 minutes from me. Tomac Automatic. I didn't know much about Tomac before I found it, but I'm really excited about riding this puppy. Did 15 miles on her the day after I got it. While it definitely doesn't have the outright climbing and flatland speed of the 29er, she goes great on the downhills and handles like it's on rails. I think i'll have more fun overall on it.

    Anyone else have a Tomac or know anything special about them? Did I make a bad move going from a 29er back to a 26?

    He sure did ,last year Jeff Emig did a feature on them both on tv during one of the supercross races ,Eli's dad and him ,they were on mountain bikes ,and talked about the tomac bicycle company I think ,they were considered a higher end bike back in the day ,one bike model was an eli ,I saw a new nos eli frame on ebay last year for sale .

    That would have been cool to see! Yea they made some high end stuff, even carbon, etc... I wouldn't call this one high end, but good stuff (x9, Deore LX, Fox RP2). I think this one sold for around $2200 in 08.

    It was priced well and never ridden much. We'll see how the move from a 29er Ht to 26 FS works, but I think it will be all around more fun. Probably not faster, but more fun (the key)

    Your post just made me sad, that Tomac is just "the guy that had that company", not a mountain biking legend.

    Its like saying Jeremy McGrath is just a guy that rode for Honda.

    I read his bio posted ,yes he is a legend in the mtb world ,excuse my not knowing who he was ,I just got back into bikes a couple years ago after retiring from atv mx a few years ago ,the last time I rode mountain bikes was about 20 years ago, a lot has happened and changed since then .

    I found the post a little lacking in recognition of John Tomac too.

    On the other hand, I didn't know his son's name was Eli and I also am not as familiar with the current crop of mtb pros.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    When viewed from left side, the whole thing looks like an inscription which says SHRED in some obscure language

    And wow you have color matched saddle rails to brakes!
