    Nice! Every time I see one of these I'm jealous of the upgrades they made over my 2016.

    My Diamondback Recoil 29er
    Its a work in progress... got about $900 including the bike purchase from Diamondback.com for $450, invested into it so far. In case your wondering about those forks I got them from a good racing buddy who only asked $100 for them... yes $100. Totally got the best deal there ever!!! I'm still waiting for the rest of my parts to arrive, like my SLX mini groupset and Shimano M395 hydraulic brakes, they should be here by Monday the 18th :D

    I bought a Transition TransAM 29er when it first came out in 2013 and I told myself I'd never sell it. This season I picked up a Chromag Surface as my go to hardtail so my TransAM was collecting dust and just didn't want to get rid of it. I wanted a project so I decided to strip it, repaint it and build a do all "adventure" bike. As you can see, the paint was stubborn and just didn't come off even after trying a few different chemical strippers.

    I considered taking it to a powder coated but the closest one is an 90 min. away. I then took some sand paper to it to clean it up and decided to go with the beat up/worn/"petina" look. After sanding it was many coats of clear primer and clear Rustoleum I think it looks damn good. As for a build I wanted a bike that could ride singletrack but also explore Vermont's class IV roads, dirt roads and something to ride with my young son around local bike paths. It's kind of an odd build as most parts I just had hanging around. Oh and those goofy pedals aren't staying.

    Frame: Transition TransAM 29
    Fork: Carver Trail 490 Carbon
    Wheels: Stans Flow EX, Hope hubs
    Tires: Vee Rubber V12, 29 x 1.95
    Seatpost: Race Face Ride
    Stem: Race Face Ride 70mm
    Saddle: Origin 8 Uno
    Bars: Race Face Atlas flat
    Brakes: Avid BB7, 160 mm rotors
    Cranks: Race Face Aeffect, 32t ring
    Cassette: Sunrace 11-32
    Rear Derailleur: SRAM Rival
    Shifter: SRAM GX

    Partially stripped and sanded before the clear coat:





    Hmmm I guess this will work:

    This bike rips around and loves to go fast. I may do a drop bar due to the cramped cockpit. Otherwise, this franken flat bar gravel 29er came out okay.

    2011 Stumpjumper FSR Comp. Her name is Squirrel. Why Squirrel? Why not Squirrel? She's fast, fun, playful, likes to hang out in the woods...

    Frame, rear triangle, BB and cranks are definitely original. Pretty sure everything else has been upgraded. Really digging the Fox 34 in 140mm.
