    Finished building it yesterday, and did a 10 mile shake down ride today. I'm digging it.

    2015 Trek X-Caliber 9

    Hi! I just joined the forum today. I got back into riding a few months ago on my new X-Cal 9. It's a great bike for my general purpose riding of rails-trails, bike paths and general fitness riding.

    So much has changed since my last mtb; a 91 DB Axis.

    I've already changed grips, seat, cassette (xtr) and pedals (XT).
    The BB51 is next to go - ordered a BB-MT8000.

    I'd like to swap to a rigid fork. Anyone know of a good one to try?

    Here's mine. Got the frame and moved parts from a Superfly 8 which explains the blue fork decal. Picked it up yesterday but we are on day 3 of steady rain so no ride yet.

    The EX9 is pretty much the perfect bike for me now that they're redesigned it.
    I demoed last year's model and it's too XC, this new one looks a lot slacker and more fun.

    It's really too bad that the Ex5 and Ex7 have the old XC geometry. I would have loved to see the shorter and slacker frames with these lower component spec models.

    Nah, the old frame is great there's a reason they stuck with it for so long. It's definitely a trail bike that doesn't completely handicap you when doing XC. I get your complaint though, but why not get a Remedy?

    Me, too. The parts specs on the 7 would be fine for my needs, but I'd prefer to have the 8's geometry.

    I started venturing into this fun gig a little over a month ago. Sure, Ive ridden before but, not like this. I found out after reviews and how it rode for me, this was a great choice. For what I do and my sub standard skills, this is something I can grow into. So far, so good. It's a great bike and has surpassed all of my needs and has even bitten me a couple times. For now, this bike rocks. The bikes I had before were, Trek 820 and a Specialized HardRock.

    I have ridden the XC Fuel frame and it's too much like my hardtail to notice much of a difference. Sure the rear travel helped everywhere but it didn't feel that plush, and the bike was very upright compared to the Rocky Mountain Instinct I rode 2 days before that demo. Not what I'm looking for.

    As for the Remedy, it's too expensive.
    My budget will max at like $2800.

    Yeah, that's a sick WFO. Funny, I don't see so many red WFOs around, mostly blue. Nice job on that build, dgw!

    Thanks for the props, the WFO frame is now 1299.00 if think the new carbon will be out soon. The WfO9 is really a fun bike that rails and climbs pretty good.

    Just picked up this new rig. Having a blast with it already. Moving up from a rigid 1994 Diamondback Ascent, this thing is a dream to ride.

    Thanks
    Unfortunately there are 2 reasons why I stick with 3x10.
    1. Is my only bike due to lack of space to keep an additional road bike and for my 50-60kms trips on pavement i need 42T chainring
    2. Already had the XT groupset (2013-2014), cannot easily sell it here where I live. Is a pain in the rear to sell the old frame, fork, wheels

    If in the future I will get a road bike, i will got to 34-36T single chainring for sure.

    Why? 1x isn't for everyone. Terrain and Rider dependent.

    It's like saying he should move to full suspension.

    Hi TwoOne ! I use 1x10 11/32 narrow 34t for xcountry and road with 29er. No trouble at all. I do about 2500 km per year. It's just perfect for 29 but for 27.5/26 no.

    I agree. I love 2 x 10 and have it on both my 29er mountain bikes. Ibis Ripley and Tranny. If I had the money I'd give 1 x 11 a try but I am completely happy with my 2 x 10 setup.

    My LBS owner has 1x10 on his F29 with I think he said 34t up front and said its magical, so I'm willing to give it a try considering I haven't used my small ring really.

    I just joined the 29er club yesterday with a used Specialized Myka sport disc. 29er bikes are really fun! I took my first really ride on it. I took it easy on a mellow trail but all I could say was "This bike is FUN!"

    Ibis Ripley

    Here is my new Ibis Ripley build thanks to Cal Coast in San Diego! 1x11 32t with XTR Di2, Enve 50/50, internal dropper post and 130mm front suspension! A lil to saturated in the pic but the bike is amazing! I will probably change out the 32 to a 30 when I do the Breck Epic in August. Hopefully other than that I can run w/the 32.

    See I is not everyone, you don't ride everywhere.
    Stop assuming what works for you works for everyone. I know for a fact without even knowing what you ride it's the wrong bike because it's not what I ride

    This is the end or start of the Power line trail really close to Heavenly Cal base. You could take this tail all the way to Corral Loop and up to Armstrong. Armstrong is a bit higher than where I was today. I have done pretty much all the trails in South Lake.

    Ah, gotcha. I've only done a small amount of Power Line. Your picture looked nearly identical to one I took on Armstrong, but I was lower into the tree line. I've been riding Toads, Armstrong, and Corral a lot lately. Heading back up this weekend if the weather holds.

    This rain made the trails really fun but also washed out a bit. It's been kind of cloudy today but should be good the rest of the week. Check out our BMX trail its all done at Bijou park. It's like the local bike hang out place now.

    ColdCreek is a fun trail to check out might want to shuttle it. You can go up Armstrong and head to stare lake then from Stare lake go down cold creek. The Christmas valley down hill is a fun rocky one.
