    I purchased that RST fork last week for only $288, some locations are charging as much as $400 but if you shop around you can still find great deals. One of the best bang for your buck forks out there IMO, it's better in every way (build quality, flex, adjustability, etc) than the equally priced fork that came with my Rockhopper, the RST Recon Silver SL.

    Yeah my bike is actually quite "cheap" compared to a lot of the bikes I've seen here, I've got a few parts that still seem very slack to me, that I feel should be upgraded down the road for durability, weight, and stigma reasons. (Like my avid juicy 3 brakes, they've gotten poor feedback from many people). I'm just taking my time with the upgrades though and REALLY enjoying this bike! - Everything works well together right now and I ride the heck out of it! (and looks good too!). As far as the brooks, I drank it's "comfort" cool-aid just like I did the 29er cool-aid... I gotta say both are gooood!!!

    weighs 21.9 pounds as you see it, and is my XC race bike only.

    Also posted in the Singular photos thread, but I'm happy to pimp this everywhere I can. My new Singular Pegasus...













    Weight comes in a bit below 23.5lbs, and that's with some heavy Hope M4 180/203 brakes. Might change them soon.

    She's a beautiful ride, exactly what I had intended...super fast over long distances (100+ km), but also really comfortable over those distances. The most surprising thing is how well it handles in fast & twisty singletrack, just brilliant. My new favourite bike ever!

    Right after I built it. Brake lines still need shortening. No saddle time on it yet and a weekend to Prague will probably delay that even further.

    Holy Moly I like it! Interested in feedback on the Q-ring once you've got some saddle time.

    In chronological order. The last bike is the only one that remains in my possession. It is also my favorite.




    It now sports a wb fm 135... This fork suits the bike and my riding style much better than the pictured reba.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Banshee Paradox

    Can't believe I've never posted any of mine here So here goes....my current ride, Banshee Paradox XL, Thomson setback post, 110/0 stem, Easton EA50 flat bar 685mm and Ergon GX2 grips, Minute 120, Hope Mono Mini 160R/Juicy7 F (need adapter for PM for Hope front) , LX M580 cranks, LX M580 shifters, XT RD and FD, Hope Pro2/Flow wheels, 7spd cassette on SS hub, XC-AT rear/Rampage front tubeless with Stans, WTB PureV, Cane Creek S3 headset, M520 pedals. Weight on bathroom digital scale says about 28lbs, definitely doesn't feel heavy. The "nice" pics were taken while I was trying out the Reba @ 100mm, haven't managed to get any good ones since I went to the Minute.



















    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    My Niner Air 9 - probably the best bike I've ever ridden!
    It's a few months old and I rode some epic races with it - Transmaurienne in de southern Alps, 160km's of Bouillon in Belgium, 125 km of Houffalize in Belgium, etc. I made it 2 times on the podium, 1 first place and 1 third place.

    Thx!

    Drivetrain is an xtr cranckset with a 22 t shimano chainring and a 36 t Ta ring. Kmc x9 chain and an 11 -34 xt casette. Frontderailleur is a Sram X9 and rear an xtr short cage. In a few week I'll change the x9 for an ultegra with Speen adaptor. With the 22-34 I could climb even the steepest hills in the Alps. In the Transmaurienne we did a climb of 38% for 1km and a climb of 17km and 1800m of height

    I recently got on the 29er bandwagon with this 2nd hand 2010 Kona Unit29 frame. Not diggin' the single speed, but the larger wheels rock. I'm secretly wanting the Pivot 429 or the TNT Turner Sultan (I don't think I'll like the DW version after losing 1800 euro on the DW spot that I didn't like). But riding fully rigid has its charm too, although it's slower and more painful to my back, LOL.

    Nice!! Great job on the matching Vicious!

    I have a Firetruck-red Spot Brand fork that I'm thinking about getting painted to match my new Ventana or just go Black or keep it red...

    Due to a hand injury I have yet to ride this bike, but I was able to build it (one handed) New frame, old parts, 25.5lbs with squishy fork:

    I was riding SS only for about 4 years before I trashed my back... now I'm relegated to gears only... when I hear someone able bodied say they don't like SSing, I get very bitter. Sack up Shirley, it's awesome.

    Hey,

    Thanks, it's a stand for 26inch wheels, so it's not very steady when u use it.

But riding fully rigid has its charm too, although it's slower and more painful to my back, LOL.
    If it hurts your bike, flip the stem over. I run my stem +5 degrees when rigid and flipped over to -5 degrees when I use suspension. It keeps the riding position feeling about the same for my back

    Just got my Orbea Alma 2 weeks ago of Ebay for what I consider a steal. Hit real trails once with it (ride my 26" YBB for beater daily rides/night rides). Gonna throw on a green King BB and some Racing Ralphs that came in the mail today.

    I freaking LOVE it. It's unreal so far. Just one ride....I know, but man, I can tell such a difference in the payoff. You give it juice and it just gives right back....ALL DAY.

    I'm sold!

    Even larger? I was spinning out on the straights at 27 Km/h. I was thinking to put a smaller cog in the back. I now run 36x18, but 36x17 would be better I think, it's not very hilly here, mostly flat. But all that is moot now since I adapted the slider to bolt on a derailleurpad.

    That's a great idea for when I get a suspension fork to go on this bike.

    Well, I'd like not to bust my back. Besides, I'm not a young lad anymore.

    Thanks. I imagine the 22 is only for crazy climbing. How's the 36-11 in terms of top speed?

    Lol! you caught me. Yep the KM is on temporary hiatus in the garage. Will be building it back up as funds allow over the winter. Just could not pass up on getting one of these Selma's though so had to go for it.

    How much lighter is the Selma? It really is a good locking bike, and I bet it rides very different, being so much lighter.

    Hmmm not really sure. I never weighed the KM. Just using my bathroom scale the selma is aprox 23 as is. I would guess it is 4-5 pounds lighter than the KM was.

    The majority of my rides are just on gravel/dirt roads. I enjoyed riding the KM but the Selma with the niner fork does feel significantly smoother over the washboard.

    Here you find a gear calculator: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/gears/

    For example: 110 rpm with a 36 - 11 gear gives you a topspeed of 45km/h.

    29er in Swiss/Italian Alps

    My OnOne 29er, changed from rigid to Fox suspension, riding Italian Alps was impressive (especially while coming from the lowlands (NL)).


    But also Swiss Alps were lovely


    Very happy 29er bik-ing

    I know, I know. I'm cross posting up the wazoo. I'm just really excited.

    The bike is blast to ride so far, I have it mostly dialed in after a single ride.

    A few more rides to shake it all out - shock pressures, fit, etc. - and I'll trim the steerer.

    I can credit MTBR for a lot of this bike - bought the frameset from classifieds, and wheels from Mike C. I then sold the previous 26er frame and wheels to other folks on the classifieds. Pretty cool.

    Just finished it this week and came back from it's maiden voyage! What an experience, 8.5 miles of pleasure, so quiet, awesome climber, all rigid which was so much fun coming from a 6" AM bike!
