i tried to stick with clyde worthy parts as i'm well north of 200 and it's the only mtb i have at this point. at some point, i may try a squishy front...or a carpet fiber front...
i love this bike.
I've heard carpet fiber components are great, but be sure to get them with StainMaster ™ or they're a b!tch to keep clean.

It's never easier - you just go faster.
Stoic Cycles custom steel frame and fork.
Just becuase there's always gotta be one that doesn't fit in:
You have no excuse for driving to work
(unless you don't have studded tires)
(no excuse for that either)
Salsa El Mariachi
Here's mine. 2013 El Mariachi with parts swapped over from another frame. Really loving the ride of steel thus far, and this will be single speed before too long.

"Uppercase with a space"
Well, here's my rigid Monkey with some recent NukeProof upgrades Got the bar first and liked the colour and needed a new rear hub and could get both F&R for the cost of the Pro2 EVO I was looking at, so decided to go with them and match things up - Going with the National colours of Blue, Yellow/Gold and Black.
As to the setup, right now running Shimano LX M580 crank w/ 36/22 SLX rings, shifters & derailleurs, SRAM PG990 cassette, HOPE Mono Mini F&R with 160mm rotors (will be upgrading front to 180mm), NukeProof Generator hubs laced to a Alex TD17 on the rear and WTB SpeedDisc for the front (for now, will be going to wider rims soon), 760mm Warhead NukeProof bar, 90mm/6* stem, generic post, Ergon GS1 grips and my oldest saddle, an 8 year old WTB RocketV.
