    Very beautiful bike. Congrats to the owner.

    I couldn't afford a B.S. so I got a El Mariachi. Best 29" I've had so far (had before a Haro Mary and a Voodoo Dambala).

    My first 29er is a fully rigid SS 29er. :)

    I bought this Seven Cycles Zeal SLX a few days and I need to update it with better saddle/seatpost/clamp, disc brake, crankset and stem/handlebar/grip. Hopefully it will be around 20Lbs. when it is finished.

    Good old monkey, 18" no decals. Avid SD7's, Sugino cranks, Surly cog (34-18), Deore hubs, Mavic rims. Like it a lot.

    Wasn't this "upgrade" to the system supposed to help weed out the SPAMming idiots?

    Bike related content... Love the black Niner JRSS13!

    A question... I had some Ardents when the first came out and they were shockingly heavy. Has that changed? I'm just curious with all the light parts that many people use I'm often surprised to see people using quite heavy tires like the Ardents or the new Onzas.

    Yea, I started a thread about how bad the new format is.

    Ardent 2.4 29er tires are in the class of tire I call "Monster Truck Tires" I would put the old Stouts (non longer made) in that class and they weighed close to 1000 grams and I would also put current Nevegals in that class and they weigh over 800. The Ardents that weigh right around 800 are actually the lightest available "Monster Truck Tires" "Monster Truck Tires" will go when other tires won't. I am currently running an Ardent 2.4 front and Nevegal 2.2 rear on my Jet9 and it is my "Monster Truck" bike. If you want or need the kind of performance that Ardent's can deliver then the weight is not significant and actually pretty good.

    Thanks for the comments on the bike. I'm happy the way it came out. The ardents are around 800 grams each. I will gladly trade off the extra couple hundred grams for the extra volume. I live in Western ny (buffalo area), and our trails are filled with roots. The extra volume will help smooth things out with my carbon fork

    Word. Small Potatoes if you are running rigid fork.

    JRSS13. Just a data point, but I have run the ARdent on the front of my full rigid and have found I like the Slant6 better. It has less volume, but the sidewalls are more compliant and since it weighs less the big hits don't seem to have as much force either. It also has a taller center so the contact patch is more long and narrow. Between the narrower casing and the narrower profile it seems like it hits a lot less stuff too. I realize everyone is different, but my current favorite setup for a full rigid is Slant6 front and Ikon Rear. And this would not be true if the situation called for all out max traction, then a pair of Ardents would win out or Ardent front Nevegal rear.

    Sorry for the hijack.

    On my rigid SS I have opted for Nobby Nic 2.35" as these are a tiny bit lighter than the Ardents and seem to me to be about the same volume. Probably only saves 100g though...

    I am a big fan of maxxis tires, and I was going to get a 2.4 ardent for my Unit, but I just heard about the new 2.3 Ikon going to be released, so I think I will wait and try that one out. I loved the 2.2 version!
