    Here is a photo of my new 29er. I bought it on Craigslist for $100. It is an Access XCL 9r 9.5 (2010 I think) The rear wheel was out of true with loose spokes, a bent d/r hanger and a slashed tire. I fixed it up and outfitted with with a new tire/tube, chain and bash guard. I had an extra cassette and transferred over my favorite bar/stem and seat and she is ready to go! I made it s 2x9. It is my first 29er and it feels fast compared to my 2001 Specialized Enduro.

    Great score and nice looking bike, mine still rides great! Too bad Performance raised the price on these after I bought mine, then lowered build specs all of which killed the great deal that they were. Ride on and enjoy it!
    Get off the couch and ride!

    Here is an update. I have just added a Manitou Marvel Comp 120 mm travel fork. It is great! The longer fork makes the head angle now 69 degrees. The forks added offset makes for a nice balance of stability without being floppy. The red flat pedals are performance branded HT's. Light, grippy and cheap as hell ($32). I'm loving this bike!

    I am running a 2.25 Ardent up front and a 2.2 Conti Mountain King II out back. I have been surprised with both of their grippiness, but plan to get meatier tired once they wear out. I miss the Hans Dampfs and Nevegals I ran on my Enduro.
