    Pretty awesome. My first long travel fork - doesn't feel like I'm using the full 150mm but the little travel indicator says I am. Rides high in the travel but still swallows big hits. Definitely a winner in my book.

    Went with the Tower Pro as I didn't want to invest too much in a non tapered fork. And I wanted white! Frame fell into my lap for peanuts, really happy with it. I want someone to make me a full squish bike that feels just like this....
    Fwiw I can never take a decent picture of it. Like Bigfoot.

    Is it still OK to just call it my "mountain" bike?

    Here is mine. Added a shorter stem (75mm) and a dropper post since this pic. I love the short stays. This bike rips.

    Impatiently awaiting my Paradox frame. Just built up a Covert 29, but thinking the parts I have hung on it right now would better suit a hardtail for winter riding.

    I just put the 140mm Tower Pro on it. I still have a few more tweaks left to do. The dropper post is being serviced, and I am going to get a Wolf Tooth 30T chainring.

    140 Reba RLT Ti with the 20mm thru axle. (The following year they replaced the "Reba" sticker with a "Revelation" sticker. Same fork.) The only problem with the dropper post is that it's maybe a hair too short and doesn't have a clamp offset.

    Just wound up with a dropper on another purchase...still trying to decide how much I like it. Now that I'm thinking of it, maybe a 140mm on my Paradox would help my low BB out. Hmm.
    So a Reba is a stealth Revelation?

    My humble contribution.

    This thread is too awesome to let die.

    My Highball with newly acquired SID 120 and beefy wheels/tyres. It's probably not really All Mountain, but definitely "Most of the Mountain" or "Quite a bit of the Mountain"

    Anyway, it's no longer XC, but muuuuucccchhhh more fun to ride down hills and through chunk this way.AM-Hardtail Gallery-20140712_163013_1.jpg
    Ride.

    I'm now going to have to consider my By:Stickel in the All Mountain Hardtail category.

    16"+ stays, 150mm travel Pike and a Thomson drooper.

    My go-to bike in the Pisgah.

    I've done it twice (2007 and 2013) on a rigid single speed. The first time was on a Zion.



    It was pretty cool doing the race on a $200 frame while everyone else was on high zoot squishy bikes.

    Last year, I was on the By:Stickel with a rigid Niner carbon fork. It was even more fun than the first time... except for the four days of massive diarrhea.

    This. Not a bad bike for what it is, but dropper post and flats don't cancel the cyclocross tires and 90 degree HTA.

    Hi everyone, I posted the following in the DB Mason Review thread, but it hasn't seen much action so I thought I would post here as well. I apologize for the cross posting, but am looking to buy the DB Mason HT before the sale price ends tonight. Any input is welcome even if you're not a Mason owner. Just looking for some opinions on my wanted riding position:

    "Hello, I'm new to the forum. I have had several back surgeries and being hunched over all day is no longer for me. I currently have a Specialized Expedition that I have been riding on rides that the designers never dreamed it could go (I am an ex moto-X-er) and am currently looking at the 2014 Mason (hardtail version)............. My question is, would you consider the seated riding position of the Mason as being "upright" when compared to a traditional XC hardtail? Thanks!"

    D bone I can't offer much advise on the mason but if your looking for a more upright position the jamis exiles offer that....also good deals on jenson....might be too cross country though compared to the mason...but with a few quick upgrades....

    yeah...all you haters are right, the bike makes the rider. so if you have a so-called "AM bike", then you MUST be an AM rider (whatever the F that means). Somebody with a hardtail and God forbid, a rigid hardtail, by definition then, cannot ride anything but sidewalks. I will probably pick up a DH bike so I can post in the DH forum about DH racing. Thanks, I get the math...

    Uh, got nothing to do with the rider bub. That's an all golf course bike, nothing to do with AM. Im assuming the rider is small/light though?!?!

    Don't get me wrong, if you're 135lb and looking to be competitive in a non technical world cup xc race its a decent rig. This is an AM HT gallery thread...

    sorry, my bad. i read magazines on occasion but honestly, i struggle to really know what AM means. slack angles...how may inches of travel....can AM bikes have rotors less than 8"....tire width.....can 29er bikes be AM bikes, which i doubt, but still? if super slack angles, can you get away with less travel and still have it an AM bike? my local shop was not very helpful in helping me understand. fortunately i only have hardtails and cant do AM rides which makes my trail choices easier.

    Intense Hard Eddie!

    Swapped post for a Kronolog and added Race Face Atlas flats. Fork is only 100mm but actually works very well in most conditions.

    Whoa I think you got this all wrong. I am sure there are riders that could jump on that bike and smoke most the people in this thread on their bigger bikes, you very may well be one of them. But the thread isn't "AM Rider Gallery," it's "AM Hardtail Gallery." And just because someone can do something with a certain tool doesn't mean there aren't better tools more specific to the job.

    good question. i am a bit behind the magazines but i dont know if technically carbon bikes can be AM since that is more of a road bike material.

    if you rode a 6" travel FS bike on forest roads i am gathering from this thread it woudl be AM. and if DW link, 4" would make it AM
