    That ritchey is gorgeous!

    Here's my contribution to the mother of all 29er picture threads! Believe it or not this bike actually started out life as a Diamondback Overdrive Pro. At this stage, and after many ebay, mtbr, bike swap purchases, I've ended up with a Gary Fisher Superfly! I think the only thing remaining of the original Diamondback is the Rock Shox Reba SL fork. And yes, those are the uber rare 9 speed XTR shift/brake combo levers with the steel braided brake lines.

    My 2012 XTC 29er 1

    Here is a Crappy iphone pic of my 2012 XTC 1. The only change that I have made so far is switching out the horrible factory seat for a WTB Silverado team saddle. This bike is fast and stable. Nothing like going back to a hardtail after riding a Santa Cruz Superlight for 3 years. This is my first 29er and I am loving it so far.

    My wish list for this bike includes a new wheelset, and carbon bars and seatpost. I will get better pics with it on the trail.

    +1 to the last post. Also, Wallstreet and Ali G have sweet rides. I don't have the money to afford all that style, but they're sweet anyway.

    JHC!! My Small XTC weighs 26.5 with not only Giant wheels, 665 crank and Marz 44 TI differences, but my cassette, stem, chain, and Niner bars are lighter!! + SLX shifters, 665 FD= not so much difference. The rest is pretty much identical. I love mine at 26.5, you must be in heaven.

    Im loving the XTC 29er frame. Giants geometry has always worked well for me, and explains why ive only had giants in my stable for the last several years. Regarding your bikes weight, I think youd be very surprised how much weight you can save by swapping out the wheels, fork, and crank. I think those were my biggest weight savings. The only downside is, those are some of the more expensive upgrades you can do to the bike. I have pictures of all the components weights, PM me if you wanna see them.

    If i remember correctly (when compared to the stock components): I saved about 2 lbs by going with the arch ex wheels and schwalbe tires setup tubeless. The fork was close to another pound...and my xt double crankset was probably another 200 grams I saved. Since you have a size small frame, i wouldnt be surprised if you got your bike into the 23 lb range. Like I said, they were expensive upgrades...but worth every penny. My bike went from being a decent xc ride...to a race worthy machine. I bought the bike used and shopped around for the best deals on components. Ive got about $1500 total invested, which is far less then a similar stock build. Let me know if you need any weight comparisons! Cheers!

    Thank you Optimus!
    Those parts have been laying around in the garage since the move. I took them off an EMD9 which I did not like the ride. And then I saw they were blowing the frames at Jensonusa.

    My Main MTB is a Niner one 9, otherwise Road...

    Here's my "new" (new to me!) 2010 Gary Fisher (Trek) Cobia 29er. I know this is basically an entry-level bike, but I'm new to mountain biking and have enjoyed the hell out of it so far.

    Bone stock except the 185mm front rotor.

    atom29: I have a similar setup on all my MTB's not because I am so worried about cadence, but because there are so many advantages to using the rear for speed and generally the wireless computers that have rear wheel pickup also have cadence.
    Advantages:
    1. If you put your bike on a trainer, you still get speed (and cadence)
    2. More accurate mileage/speed readings.
    3. No interference/adjustment issues when removing the front wheel for transport.
    Disadvantages-none that I am aware of.
    In regards to #2 above; on all 2 wheel vehicles (I guess I would have to except the Segway) the front wheel always travels further than the rear wheel unless you always go completely straight. On a curvy course the cumulative error adds up. In local testing we have done it amounts to the difference of 7.20 to 7.32 on our local curvy course with 2.2 29er tires.

    Ha! I thought you would say that. If you don't care about cadence why not loose the sensor? It is a Garmin right? Let a satellite be your sensor.

    I've had this for a few weeks now but haven't gotten any decent photos of it until this past weekend. I upgraded from a Trek Cobia to a 2011 Orbea Alma H30. Awesome XC race machine!

    Nice Niner Vince, is that a Ti spring on the shock? More photos would be good

    Unless of course they're over in the Niner thread, where I haven't looked yet.

    2012 Marlin at Flatwoods in Tampa.

    Perfect weather on Thanksgiving. It was the first ride with a carbon bar, it felt like I needed to maintain less of a death grip on the bar going over the bumpy stuff. New pedals too, Wellgo MG-1s, I should've changed out the stock ones a loooong time ago.

    Have you never seen a garmin? Its a speed and cadence sensor in 1 unit. Gps based speed is crap. Also allows readings on trainer for those of us whi actually train.

    My statement implies that speed and cadence are coming from the same sensor.
    If I've never seen a Garmin, how would I recognize one just from the sensor and mount? Sounds a lot more like I've seen many, many Garmins.
    Don't even get me started on trainers, and even worse, using 29ers on trainers.

    Frame just came in tonight and got it built up for a neighborhood shakedown. True test will be tomorrow on the night ride. Not real crazy about gripshift but we will see how that goes, in the mean time I'm just happy to be off my hardtail for a little while.

    I never rode grip shift and my wife wanted grip shift and after tooling around on her bike it is pretty nice. I don't think you will be dissapointed at all. Trim on the front, easy to roll up or down several gears at a time on the rear. Probably shifts better under load when going to larger sprocket in rear, etc.

    That's a Garmin mount - it transmits both speed and cadence from the rear wheel. I'm a masher, not a spinner, so cadence is the last thing on my mind

    Post Pictures of your 29er-uploadfromtaptalk1354577807589.jpgmy first mtb. Went straight to a 29er. Bought the frame and fork cheap then built her up from the parts bin, ebay and craigslist. Slx cranks shifters and cassette, xt fd and rd. Wtb laser tcs trail wheels. She built up to 27lbs even with that piece of crap fork. Will learn to ride some offroad and look to replace frame and fork with chinese carbon and tower pro

    You ride a 12' Mamba? Black mamba - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You are bad@$$!

    Does it roll (or should I say slide) better than a 29er?

    All joking aside, good looking rig, ride on!

    The rear is just off in the other direction, the mid-point would be the actual, IMO.
