    My bike....details in sig. Also, I bought this new a few months ago and have no plans of ever going 29'' or 650b. My trails would revolt.

    My 2009 Giant Anthem XW. Yeah, it was cheap and it's getting old, but I've ridden it a couple thousand miles in the two years I've had it, it's light, and I pass a lot of people climbing on it. I'm buying a new bike, but I'm going to keep this one around - it's been good to me

    Look for (near the top half of the page) and go to 'settings'. Then click the last setting along the left menu options.

    Hey, how's that rig holding up to our central coast trails? Ironic, just today I was looking at the 650b version on BD.com. I'll have to watch for you on the trail.

    I'll be rolling this till I win the lotto and can afford something lighter with more travel. Its been a good bike but due to its age its gotten to the point where I'm running out of upgrades to make it lighter that are budget friendly.

    Is that a DOSS dropper? The suspension looks very susceptible to bob with that pivot above the axle and on the seat stay.

    Its a new Thomson dropper post, Thomson Bike Products | Dropper Seatposts . With the GT i-drive rear suspension there isn't much bob at all and I'm sure there would be even less with a better rear shock.

    I hear ya on that. I just purposefully sought out a 26in build and finished this up last week. F-this force feeding of new wheel sizes that offer no significant benefits (i'm looking at you 27.5).

    X-prezo Super-D, 26in style.

    Yeah I bet. Did you drill the holes for the bottle cage or do those come stock with the bike? I looked into the Mojo for awhile but couldn't wrap my head around the unusual front triangle.

    This will always be an Iron Horse to me. 6POINT8 frame, the 2.75" shock getting stuffed, FloodGate mod'd Totem, and a cobbled 9Speed drivetrain. This pic was prior to the dramatic Fork change, now back with a 0 Deg stem instead of a -17 Deg.

    The bike is made to accept a bottle. I use a bottle with a domed cover cap to keep the mouthpiece clean. I don't always use a bottle except on longer and warmer rides.

    I am reposting my recently upgraded Giant Reign SX and NS Surge Evo. Both of them are fantastic bikes and really fun to ride and honestly I can't find any reason to even consider replacing them.

    Never felt the need to. Although I do plan on driving down the road [local company] with the fork to Push Industries to have them re-worked. Why what shock do you think I should upgrade to.

    Love the Mojo and the front triangle IMO is it's signature look. Unmistakable bike from a distance.

    I'm sure you know more about shocks than I do. But my $0.02 is that when I had my '99 Stumpjumper I replaced the stock Manitou coil springs with air springs and I not only gained a noticeable weight advantage but I also got the additional benefit of adjustability.

    From the 135 axle to the external BB to the 1 1/8 steerer every standard on this bike is obsolete - except for the fun factor.

    The "back-up" bike came into use this week.


    '08 Iron Horse MKIII Comp
    5" DW*Link
    Changed bars, brakes, saddle, and the rear hub crapped out about 3 weeks after I got it so I went with a bolt-on to give that rear triangle some help, but it is still solid and perfect for me.

    My steel Bianchi Tycoon from 2002 that I recently built up. I wanted to start riding my local trails after riding only road for several years and this is the "budget" build I put together. Honestly, anything newer would have been at least twice as expensive. I love this bike, it is super stable and confidence inspiring.

    You should upgrade the saddle from the Selle Italia Turbo to the Flite. The Flite is noticeable cushier off-road. I have an old bike with a Turbo and a couple of old bikes with the Flite. Selle Italia still makes both of those saddle models. I'm assuming that is a Turbo, it sure looks like one.

    It's a crappier, heavier bianchi branded (barely, all the writing has mostly rubbed off) copy of a turbo. I am going to switch to a different saddle because that one is insanely uncomfortable. I have a very comfortable cheapo saddle that is going to go on there before I ride again. I would love to try a Flite, but they are $$$.

    Not to many people building 26 inch frames these days, i got this frame very cheap and found it climbs better than my 29 hardtail.

    I had the wheelset from my old intense SS1 so I built this! Rides great, but I ordered a rigid fork for it.

    It's a 2010 model but I brought it from the LBS only last year, new for a bit less than half the original RRP! Anyway lately it's got a few decent upgrades, particularly the fork from a Dart 2 to a Manitou Marvel Comp, much nicer now.
    Love my 26"er HT, my Husband has one too so really we got two for less than the original price of of one...and it's carbon!

    I ride the dirt roads along the railway line to work, and ride some dirt with my Son on the weekends where possible. No real MTB trails where I live now so I'll have to find my own...in time, only been here for a few months.

    This is the ride to work (5:30am in this case), on this particular day there was a train stopped. It's only about 3km / 10 min ride, about the same time it takes to drive if driving the proper way haha, but it's fun driving the fourby this way through the puddles in the potholes after a good rain too. I love being able to ride to work, well considering I sometimes have to work 12hr days there's not a huge amount of time to go riding otherwise.

    Because there's a difference between "tire sizes" and wheel sizes. Even then they play difficult together.

    2014 Giant Reign X, I didn't like the feel of the Trance 27.5 or the Trance SX 27.5 but I loved the Reign X. The new 27.5 Reign is pretty nice but I already have this!

    Here's mine. Every time I look at it, I think "I should sell that." Every time I ride I think "I'm never selling this thing!"

    2004 FSR, lots of upgrades over the years, pretty light (26 lbs), fast, fun.

    That looks very similar to my '03 Intense Tracer, which also used the FSR rear. I did eventually sell it, but I had many years of fun on that bike. Really loved the feel, although the rear did get to feeling a little loose.

    I had one just like that prior to my current one. It's what got me into mountain biking and I learned how to bunny hop on it. Pedal bob on that FSR was awful.

    Figured I'd post again in here since I switched the bike over to a fully rigid carbon fork. Rides great, even in the rain! Love the quick steering, very dialed from a handling perspective.

    Here is my 2001 Specialized Enduro. Heavily upgraded over the years, but still going strong. A platform shock did wonders to get rid of the old bob. I'm loving the number of FSR's in here.

    26ers are so dead they're cool. But seriously, I've seen such good deals out there on used 26 inch wheels, frames, fork, that my next few bikes will probably be 26er..

    Nice! This bike has treated me well. I built it up component by component in 2002. Can build an extremely light bike off that frame.

    Just moved from a 2014 On-one carbon Whippet



    I loved it and won a recent XC series on it running 1x10 XTR with a bunch of bits from Raceface, Hope, with Magura Durin fork and Spinergy wheels. It came in at about 9kg ready to ride.
    Awesome bike.

    The sale of the frame helped me get this though





    A brand new 2011 Rocky Mountain Element RSL frame, upgraded Fox Float RP23 Kashima shock, and 2014 Magura TS8 R100 fork. All the other bits were moved from the Whippet over to this bike. I have a clutch derailleur on its way and this will be fitted next week. The Bionicon chain tensioner will be removed at the same time.

    It gets its first trail ride this weekend. It'll be dialed in over coming months in prep for our race season which starts in May. Although we do have a summer series here, it is generally too hot for XC racing here in Queensland, Australia where temps regularly exceed 40&#176;+ and the winter series is more popular for this reason.

    Comments welcome.

    My 09 Reign along with my middle son (far right) on his 08 Enduro SL. Oldest son (middle) rented a bike for the day since he flew in from Cinci. The Reign just received a new Marz 55 CR fork and new S-R Charger Expert wheels, so it's ready for several more seasons.

    The Enduro lives a difficult life underneath son #2. He uses it in the Colorado college MTB racing series (all events: downhill, short track, dual slalom, XC), and is one of those riders who simply breaks lots of things. He's now running Azonic Outlaw rims laced to stock hubs using Sapim Strong spokes. So far, those wheels seem to be holding up for him. I can't imagine trying to get 29" wheels to survive under him.

    Oldest son moved on to a 29" Stumpy this year. Being 6'5", and living/riding in Cinci, the 29" wheels make a lot of sense for him. The trails in that part of the country are not nearly as taxing on wheels as what we encounter here in CO.
