    Not always but in this case it's good advice not to throw money at that bike. I suggest riding that bike hard, learning on it, getting your new mtb'er crashes on it and investing down the line in a more capable bike if you end up loving off roading. Upgraded parts for that bike won't carry over to current standards of quality bikes.

    I had a Craigslist bike that I treated poorly and loved dearly before retiring it and buying a 'crazy' carbon FS trail bike too. If I bought my fancy bike right off the bat my basic skills would be weak and I would've made a mess of a really nice bike. You're on the right path 84prerunner, shred hard and have fun!

    I know a new bike is a good idea, but I have a hard dropping even $700 on another bike. I rode a 25lb pivot FS and it was amazing, but I am afraid I'll drop money on another used bike and still not be happy with it. Trying to get the best bang for my buck without a big enough budget for a full blown nice bike.

    This is my custom geometry Talbot 29er. I'm 6'7" with a long torso and really wanted a bike that would allow me get a good position, without a long stem or a massive stack of spacers. Been riding it for over a year now and really happy with it.

    I've also been after a Rohloff for over 10 years now and as my singlespeed was getting too much for longer trips, I finally got one. Matt at Talbot Frameworks added the cable guides and sorted out a fancy new paint job.

    It's so nice being able to cruise up hills now!

    Had the 205km Flinders Outback Epic in South Australia last week, took off my usual Ardents and fitted some speedy shoes. Schwalbe Thunder Burts, dropped about 600g off the Trek and popped it into the 9's... if only for a week. Ardents back on, grip is on tap again.

    2007 Monocog + Specialized Commuter

    Monocog that I bought new. Just started working on a few upgrades. It will be my Urban Assault Commuter soon. 1x10 conversion with a few other functional upgrades to make it a practical-ish grocery getter....

    Drivetrain parts should be in next week and will post pictures of the conversion process.


    Post Pictures of your 29er-file_000-2-.jpg

    Here is my summer commuter, it technically qualifies as a 29er.

    Just built, OPEN +. Will be my only bike as it was designed to take both 29 and 27.5+ setups (up to 27.5x3). Showing xc setup here. Still building up the 27.5+ set for the trail config. Virgin ride yesterday, love it. Wheels are Nox Skyline w I9 Torch boost hubs, fork is new Fox Float 32 120mm (non step cast) boost w 44mm rake. 17.97 lbs in this setup. Plus setup to be Spesh Purgs 3.0 on Nextie i39mm rims/i9 boost hubs.

    My Superlight 29.
    Some upgrades to get a slacker geometry.
    140mm fork
    Cane Creek 2 degree offset headset
    Offset shock hardware
    Installed a Renthal 30mm(I think) stem and Thomson setback seat post and that shifted my weight where it belongs.
    Just upgraded the drivetrain to a 1x11 XT/XTR
    Stan's Flow rear, Arch front Chris King hubs
    Lots more goodies as well.
    It's the favorite in my 4 bike stable right now.
