    It now has a shorter stem, flat pedals and it's getting a new Derby wheelset. I'll post a new picture soon. This one is a little old.

    Yup. Different saddle now. That Turbo broke me the one time I rode it.

    Ok, this is starting to look like a vintage thread. It's time for something new. 26" x 40mm Derby rims with Hadley hubs, DT Swiss Revolution spokes and Sapim Polyax 14mm nips, so they stick out nice and far when the weather gets cold. I'm waiting for a pair of American Classic valves. Build weight is 1690 grams.

    I have a 2008 Bauer Bravo
    Stock they don't have a much on them, but I have updated the drivetrain to a mix of xt/slx/deore, added formula brakes, EA70 bars, EA90 stem and a WTB saddle. All I want to do is get some Rockshox XC30 forks then it will be complete.

    Down the track I want to get into some touring/bikepacking so it will end up with some transient panniers too

    2010~11(?) GT Distortion. Found it on ebay and bought it from a gentleman in Huntington Beach area. It's a factory prototype or something. Production models have cable/hose guides under the top tube (mine has none), and external cup on the bottom headset (mine is internal)

    Car Bone, that Chromag is an awesome ride, love the look of the chunky tires with the fenders. How you find the bars ride in that position? Have you ever thought of running them higher on the steerer with an angled stem for a bit more of an upright riding posture?

    Yeah i was actually running it with all those gold spacers under the stem for over a year. Then I read some stuff about cx-fitting over at rbr and one guy supposedly went to a really good fitter and they actually lowered the bar for him to make it more comfortable. So yesterday I tried it too, and to my surprise its more comfortable now, go figure.. I lowered the bar about 50-60mm and also the saddle about 8-10mm but nothing else. As you can see I mostly ride the in the drops. never the hoods as roadies do. but sometimes I put my hands just next to the stem like a hipser with a fixie, and its comfortable too.

    I'm gonna buy a nitto dirt drop for it and then run cane creek time trial levers and some kind of little dummy lever (but its not an actual lever its just a little knob to limit hands slipping forward while on the hoods).

    Its my "monster road" commuter. my new monster road commuter

    Good ole 08 Giant Boulder SE. Back in college I went to my LBS and asked for the cheapest bike they had. It was around $350 and I thought that was pretty expensive. But growing up on Walmart bikes it felt like a super nice ride. Now my brother got me into mtb so I've just started to take it on actual trails and it seems to do fine. I've just got to keep fighting the urge to get a nicer bike.

    Titus

    2006 Titus MotoLite that I resurrected. I just bought a used 2013 Fox Talas (hard to find 1 1/8 steer with 15mm dropout) recently and upgraded my aging shimano LX 9 speed drivetrain to a more modern 1/10 with a OneUp 42 and a RaceFace crankset (30t). I'm running a hand built White Industries wheel set, they have been bomb proof! Thomson post, Renthal bar and stem, XT disc brakes, specialized tubless purgatory front ground control rear, specialized saddle. Very nice riding bike, I also have an older 1996 Norco team issue hard tail when I feel the itch to ride oldschool.

    Ahhh, the beautiful Ibis HD, in her natural habitat. She downhills, she cross country races, and she shreds the rocky, sassy single track of Arizona, Utah, and Colorado...God I love this bike.

    Been wanting to join here for a while, may as well do it now.

    Here is my new bike (about 3 month old), a Saracen 2013 Ariel 14X (without the crap stock spec). Got a considerably better spec over that of the new 650b frame, for less money.

    Post your 26er Pics-saracenr.jpg


    And my still living Carrera that has been through hell and back since 2011. Parts have been replaced as they break and funny enough, the drive-train is still going strong with only the cables needing yearly replacement. I think I have clocked in 10,000+ miles on this bike, given that I have been riding it every week since I bought it and I recorded a month on Stava with it and covered 500 miles in that one month.

    My Bikes:

    2002 Enduro pro, Purchased brand new from Super Go in Santa Monica on July 4th Weekend 2002. Changed the Stem to an Azonic 45 degree shorty riser. Replaced the Specialized Strong Arm II Cranks with Race Face, When the Psylo's could no longer be rebuilt I installed some Revelations, and added risers for the Disk Brakes to fit some larger disks in there. The FSR Shock Mount bracket broke last year and I developed a small crack where the seat post is, could not find my reciepts and without that Specialized was no help, so she is retired until I can get fixed.

    The first trip to Big Bear (before Snow Summit closed down the on-property runs Circa 2002):


    One of my last rides before she was retired:



    I ended up going for a bigger frame and bike when I replaced the Enduro, a 2006 Kona Coiler. I have been riding this bike for just over a year now:


    Years ago a friend gave me his old Rock Hopper Rigid and I tossed some street tires on it to use for Beach Cruising and short road rides with the wife:


    A year ago I purchased my first true Downhill Bike, a 2006 Specialized Bit Hit. Rode it two days at Snow Summit last year, taking it to Mammoth this summer:


    well, the front wheel is 26, the rear is 24.....!!!!!

    2012 Fuji Tahoe 4.0

    Here's my new 2012 Fuji Tahoe 4. It's a new old stock purchase; I work for a private college that has a pro deal with Fuji for our outdoor program, so got this for less than half original price. Figured I couldn't pass it up! Getting back into mountain biking after a 10 year hiatus. I love 26er. My LBS tries to tell me 26 has been dead since 2007-08. That sounds crazy to me, but whatever. Going to enjoy this one for a while.

    I've converted it to a 1X10 using a RaceFace NW 32T ring, switched to a 60mm RaceFace Ride stem and Titec Flat tracker carbon bar, and Eggbeater pedals.

    I got lucky and found the original in my own computer. I don't even know how I got it since the computer is not very old. I originally posted this on MTBR. Later Dirt Rag published it. I go back to MTBR since some time in the mid-nineties.

    "A World Trade Center Survivor’s Tale"


    I work(ed) on the 68th floor of One World Trade Center. That’s the North Tower. The first one hit, the last to fall. Guess that’s something to be proud of in its own perverse way.

    Me, I’m a creature of habit. For 15 years I’ve gone for coffee at 9:30 am. Never missed my coffee never varied my time. Makes me seem pretty anal when you think about it.

    Besides being anal, I hate meetings. I hate meetings almost as much as I love coffee. On September 11, I had a meeting scheduled for 9 am with a woman who likes to talk. (Really likes to talk!) I figured there was no way I’d get coffee by the time she finished so I went for coffee at 8:30 am. Never did that before, haven’t done it since.

    Down the elevator, out to the street. Not only do I have coffee at 9:30 everyday, I always buy my coffee from Ali the Afghan on Church Street. (Ali came to New York to avoid the war in Afghanistan.) No reason to change that on the 11th.

    I got my coffee and headed back to my office. I spot a dime. Did I mention that I always pick up coins? I do. I’m cheap and anal. I heard a noise and looked up. An American Airlines 767 was in trouble. Wow, it was going to be close to my building. “Holy Shit!” It hit my building.

    I was working in Public Affairs for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that day. My comment was recorded by a tourist’s camcorder. “Holy Shit!” has been repeated worldwide many times since September 11. It was not the first official statement by a Port Authority employee but it was the most accurate.

    I ran. I told others to run. Survivors run, victims stare. I did not spill my coffee.

    I reached a pay phone, drank my coffee, and called my mother collect so she could tell everyone I was all right. My wife’s phone number was in my office. I was not going back to my office to get it.

    My mother answered the phone. She would not accept the charges. Thanks mom.

    I called again and this time I got through.

    What could I do? I took the train home. After I walked from the station to my wife’s office. (My car keys were in my office that had ceased to exist by then) She drove me to my car and lent me her spare set of keys. Me, I made one stop. I stopped at my local bike shop and made sure they did not cancel the order I had for new tires.

    I eventually got my new tires. I hope Ali still has his coffee stand somewhere in New York City.

    Talked her way out of it .....

    Our offices were below the impact so everyone walked down many flights of stairs and got out. The woman was still around when I retired in 2011.

    Rev B. Great story and you were extremely lucky that day. I'm sure you've heard this before, but I'm going to put it out there again anyway. You should have bought a lottery ticket that day.

    Did you really stop at the bike shop to make sure they didn't cancel a tire order?

    Yes I did. Priorities and I wanted those tires. I think they were Kenda Nevegals.

    I went back to work at a new location in Jersey City on the 13th. We had quite a mess to clean up since I worked for the Port Authority of NY&NJ.

    Cool. Thank you. After I posted it I realised it was dark myself. I posted some 'first impressions' of the bike in another thread and posted a lighter picture there: LINK

    If you are talking about the green thing then yeah, it's growing on me. It's very plain and purposeful. My first thought was 'If Tonka designed a bike it would look like this'. I also like the fact that it's a bit different.

    That picture was taken right at the top of the hill at Glentress and the last section, the Spooky Wood climb, is a mare. I've always made it though but yesterday I had to stop at a couple of bits as I'm so out of shape.

    Maybe a picture of me would've been close enough ;0)

    How do these ten-year-old bikes look so fresh? :0. Mine end up all chipped and scratched and I don't abuse them, it just happens.
