    Nice bike, but I gotta ask. Is the safety seat meant for him, OR, does he break your fall?

    Stan's and several others make white wheelsets. Usually you can look closely at the pictures to see the brand since most rim manufacturers have way too many logo's. Also, you could powdercoat a rim before you build it.

    Those seats are good!

    My father had one on his heavy ass early mountainbike (a LONGUS) and a second one on the back of the bike.
    My sister and I always argued, who´s turn it was to sit in the front.

    We were allowed to change gears sometimes and ring the bell. I loved it.

    A seat on the back is boring though.
    A kid´ll see the back of the rider and that´s about it.

    And safety:

    Overhyped. We worry about riding a bike with a kid. Just look at Fukushima, Lybia or practically anywhere else. Seems more dangerous to me...

    Yes to question one. Yes and yes to your statement. I am not at liberty to talk about them until the release date (if it even ever happens). So we'll just keep it there for now.

    And, the new JET updated with tires for an upcoming race which are the lighter IKON I own on the front (510g) and a Raven 2.2 on the rear (530g) is pictured here:

    Spreadsheet with the tires:

    That's right We officially showed them at the Taipei Cycle Show, so the cat's out of the bag. I'm not sure when they'll be available for purchase, though.

    Oh BTW, great pictures on this 29er 2.0 picture thread so far. Luvin the spot bike and Anthem. Oh and I have the same Ibert as posted earlier and no, not used to break a fall with my kid that's fo sho.

    Oh, so now you let us know. I checked the website for the Taipei Cycle Show to see if you did announce them/show them there, but didn't find anything.

    There are a couple of pictures on Flickr.com by me as well as Culturesponge of the MaxxLite 29"er tires.

    Here's Culturesponge's links:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/culturesponge/5509466851/
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/culturesponge/5509463257/

    And he's running them on his Air 9 Carbon here.

    They are lighter and faster than the Furious Freds and Crows.

    I've ridden them front and rear since October on my JET 9 for testing purposes. I only swapped out to different tires today because of a race coming up on an course that is built on an old factory/iron works island. There are all kinds of sharp goodies sticking up on that course and something on that course ate a Ralph of mine two years ago. I didn't want to risk trashing one of the Maxxlites - so off they came.

    I've got 2 XC races under my belt with them, lots of frozen singletrack through the winter, and lots of training this spring on them. Since I have used and ridden the Crows, XR 1.8's and Ravens - it's old hat for me to ride and race a smaller volume semi-slick. These Maxxlites are pretty impressive, but may not be everyone's cup of tea. Good bike handlers, XC racers, tubeless users with tubeless ready rims will delight.

    Crows and Ravens tread wears pretty quick. I see no sign of the Maxxlites wearing out yet and I've been on them since October - including pavement. The tread bites better than the velcro Crows/Ravens. Nice tight bead on the Stans Crest rims as well. Aired right up and no sidewall seepage of sealant. I was surprised to still see a good amount of sealant in the tires today when I took them off after 5 months.

    Ok just a boring Friday at the office so I have some time on my hands and my intent is not to start a real sh*t storm but I just went through the entire thread and it would appear that the RaRa is the tire of choice for a good percentage of rider's with the Ignitor following in close second

    Spent like an hour cleaning it before those pics cause i was working on it...thats why its on the stand. Also i wash it before i bring it indoors if i dont ride back to back. I live in an apartment and having a muddy ass bike sitting in the dining room is no bueno.

    All 29"er,all the it's all I own :)

    Two of three 29ers,the Redline and the new Jabber...

    The Redline (how she looked last year...sporting CX tires and stock rigid fork now)...

    The Dawes Deadeye(now missing wheels and cranks temporarily)...

    The new Jabberwocky (borrowing the Dawes's wheels and cranks temporarily to get it ridable)...





    Hopefully,will get some dirty ride pics of the Jabber this weekend

    Exactly... where I live is the High Desert, so the small bit of mud that we "sometimes" have is usually coupled with unrideable trails because it is part of massive snow melt off. Mine did get plenty dirty this week while riding the creek trail as there was a couple good sections of mixed mud/snow that were dead middle of the trail. If I get out there this weekend I will show you the little bit we get. Other than that my bike will just collect dust from the trail as small plumes of dust rise behind me.

    @Longhaultrucker- I love the jabber. Gots one myself. Some people say it's preference, but I highly recommend running that front brake line on the inside of the fork. On the Reba- you need two zip ties- one on the bridge and one on the lower just under the bridge/ stanchion. Run it inside to avoid it getting caught on anything and it will also line up with the caliper a little better.

    Superfly 100 (2010)

    Ok, I had to post. I love this bike so much!

    To give a little bike background. 2007-2009 rode a Tomac Synper 140 (26") and last year I rode an Epic 29er. I just came off a 2011 Lynskey Ridgeline

    The Superfly 100 has been my favorite so far. Believe the hype my friends. It handles great (cornering and tight cockpit) and climbs like a mountain goat. I was worried at first about pedal bob (coming off an Epic and Lynskey) but that was laid to rest after my first ride.

    The Superfly is a GREAT XC bike with all the best qualities - just my opinion.

    Here's my break down:
    - 2010 Superfly 100 and Fox F29 RLC G2 Offset Fork
    - Stan's Crest 29er Wheelset with American Classic Hubs (1460 Grams)
    - Niner Carbon Flat Bar (sweet bar!)
    - XX Crankset - XT Pedals
    - XX Shifters
    - XX Rear Derailleur and Cassette
    - X0 Front Derailleur
    - Avid Elixir Brakes and Rotors
    - Bontrager Race XXX Lite Carbon Seatpost
    - Specialized Phenom Saddle
    - Thomson Elite Stem

    actually no, lot's people are running 1x10 (or 1x9) without guides

    i've not had any issues at all stomping the crankset as hard as my little legs can muster - XX medium RD is keeping perfect chain tension

    might make one though

    ...2 days later edit...

    just a tad paranoid now about the chain jumping while at full kilter - so ordered an e.13 chain guide last night ...after building that a9c i'm too skint to afford any hospital bills

    Dang, I haveNt seen too many, lol. But then again, I haven't seeno too many sub 15lb mtn bikes neither :-P

    And yeah, go for it and make your own, I know this guy who works at a cnc shop and he made a real sweet one for cross.

    But that excites me about the tension on the xx med cage rear derailleur, mines sitting in a box just begging to be put on my bike :-D

    @EGF168:

    Do these ugly stickers on the rims come off easily?

    I hate them on my 29er FSR comp,
    but until now I thought that they´d leave ugly traces and stuff?

    The Expert looks great in that stickerless trim!

    They come off easy enough…but leave some glue behind. Removing the remaining glue isn’t hard but would have been faster if I could find my white spirit.

    I think the whole bike looks a lot better without them!

    Thanks!

    I´ll go ahead and peel them off.

    I´d love to get a light wheelset though. Some Stans Crest and Hope hubs or something...

    Oops, made the wrong post in another thread, it should actually go here since my rig is a 29er.

    Enjoy!

    2010 FSR 29 Comp

    2 days New, straight to goat trail in Palm Canyon, CA (Palm Springs)







    Current setup: 2x9 (24/36), e13, KS seatpost, thompson stem, odi's, Chris King HD's on Flows, F/R 2.4 Purgatory Controls, CB pedals, PG990 11-34, reba 29 rlt ti 140mm (not shown)







    Next: figuring out how to get rid of the Triad and replacing it with an RS or RP23, stupid proprietary linkage/mount.

    2009 GF Paragon frame with Roxshox Recon Silver TK, BB7, shimano deore derailleurs with sram shifters, Bontrager Rhythm Comp wheels and race face atlas bar. huge step up over what I was using before. I love it




    oh and I need to replace those platforms quick. They have no grip and I have a feeling they are going to break soon, made out of plastic. I've got my eye on these: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm...d=240%20DMRV87. Would like to stick with red, compliments the bike nicely. any other recommendations?

    My Epic Carbon Comp 29er

    Love this bike. Was riding an Epic 26er until I got a SS 29er and I was ruined. Running Fox F100 G2 and it handles like a dream. Upgrading wheelset next... flimsy stock rims and hubs.

    I was also riding an Epic 26er, heavily upgraded, until I got a SS 29er (Spot Longboard posted earlier in this thread). Now the Epic just collects dust... Anyone want an Epic?

    I sold my Epic 26er frame on Craigslist about a week after I finished my first 29er build. I was able to build 2 more bikes for my kids off of the money I made on that bike.
    I'm not name-calling. I'm just listing the facts. The fact is that you did NOT have 6in inserted----alexrex20

    Love the bike, but more importantly. What a great way to determine seat height in relationship to bar/stem height. You get the alignment perfect just by putting it up to an aluminum garage door!

    Sweet!

    New paint for a used frame I've had floating around for a while. Had Tony build a rigid steel fork to match which should be ready shortly. Ignore the temporary pedals.

    Aaaahhh,

    Nice Rig Bud It's interesting how many of us change the bars on the GF's, I did the same thing on my Cobia ( the post above yours ). I found the 15 degree sweep on mine to be a bit much.

    Nice lookin bike you got there, enjoy !

    Thanks.

    A little more "look at me" than I intended, but still happy with the way it turned out. The ride is pretty awesome, too.
