    I know it's not much to look at but I like it. I bought the Raleigh complete in '98 or '99 and have since put around $3000 into it in various part and labour. Gone through 3 sets of shocks, countless rubber (tubes included of course), two bottom brackets, 4 sets of brake pads, 2 computers, 3 wheels, 2 seat posts, 2 sets of brake components, a pair of grips and one head set. Thant just what I can recall in the past 10 years or so. I bought it from Liberty! Bicycles or Cyclepath (LBS) back then. They treat me right, they're great people.
    I know it's a little dirty but I havn't had a chance to clean it since I got caught in the rain 2 days ago. I call it "Ike", by the way.

    Frame: 1998 Raleigh Serengeti
    Fork: 2007 Rock Shox Tora 302's
    Brakes: Shimano Deore XT
    Cranks: Shimano A
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR
    Pedals: Good 'ol Wellgo's
    Stem: Zoom
    Handlebar: Zoom
    Seatpost: Shock Post, can't remember what.
    Saddle: Specialized Gel
    Bottom Bracket: Titanium something or other
    Cassette: unknown from crappy steelie
    Headset: FSA Orbit
    Grips: New but unknown. They're OK.
    Tires: Specialized Hardrockers (26x1.95)
    Wheels: Unknown steelies (Spinergy 4-spoke CF destroyed in accident Aug. 06)
    Weight: Guessing 25ish lbs.







    Where am I? And how the hell did I get here?

    As someone who was riding mtbs when they came out, and used them extensively, it is kind of funny.

    If you lived in an area where it was almost perpetually wet, like NW Washington, those Magura rim brakes were the only brake going that you could count on to stop you year 'round. Sure were hell on rims, though

    Magura still makes them, and more than a few trials riders I know use them. And guys like belvedere86 who are happy with rim brakes.
    If you go looking for trouble, you can be sure it's gaining from behind.

    ^^^^^^^

    was about $1300+-, only reason to get it as a full bike is coz i didn't have anything to start with, yes they are from poland, and yes they've got really sick bikes...

    frame only is relatively cheap, as it's a full steel frame, and not expensive steel...

    I couldn't ride a bike that heavy. Too inconvenient. Mines about 25 lbs right now and I'm still trying to lose some bike-fat.

    Something a tad unconventional:

    06 Speshy Hardrock Sport
    Shimano Hollowtech I cranks, single 32T ring
    8speed crummy sram drivetrain
    supergo launch wheels
    formula oro K24's 160R 180F
    2006 Marz 66SL set to 140mm travel

    New head angle is sitting at just north of 69*, bottom bracket @just below 12.5"

    It's hell on wheels is I've ever ridden it. Rolls fast, still rails corners, and the fork takes anything I can throw at it. Slacker angles give me better stability over the stock XC geometry. Great fun and just a little sketch with that bonty rear tire

    Next upgrade: cranks that aren't bent because of crashes/rediculous power from mashing up hills

    Here is my hardtail. Its a K2 Zed 3.0 all stock except for the pedals which are Shimano M540 clipless.

    I was wondering if you guys would consider this AM or XC? I ask because, I notice a lot people have mixed feelings about what hardtail falls into what category. I ride really rough trails and would consider myself more of an AM rider, but not sure since the definition of AM rider is so vague and openended.

    Also, what would you do to make this bike more suitable for AM riding? I've only been riding for a few months so I'm still learning.

    You like steep, quick and technical descents but like to earn your way to the top, don't wear tights for riding, don't shave your legs and jump every once in a while. If your bike does all that and handles it. It's an all mountain bike. depends on you

    it looks a little on the softer side of all mountain... myself I find the definition of an am hardtail is a bit burlier than a normal xc but it still has the ability to climb well the only thing I would do is to upgrade parts as they start to wear out otherwise that is a decent ride and the definition of AM is up to you
    Keep on Ridin

    My Do-It-All

    Here's mine. Sorry for some of the pic quality though. Planning to take better ones.

    It's still stock-ish i know. But big things are going its' way. So far i've only changed the tires, pedals and crankset. Syncros Gain and AM Stem making it's way in soon.

    Frame: 2007 Giant Yukon 14" ALUXX FluidFormed frame
    Fork: 2007 SR Suntour XCM-MLO 100mm
    Brakes: Tektro IO Mechanical Brakes (6" rotors)
    Cranks: Truvativ Hussefelt
    Front Derailleur: Shimano SIS (not in use anyway. single ring now.)
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano Acera 8-speed
    Pedals: Tioga DX Comps.
    Stem: Giant Racing 90mm
    Handlebar: Giant Racing
    Seatpost: Giant Racing
    Saddle: Stock. Apparently it's something from WTB.
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano
    Cassette: Shimano 8 Speed
    Headset: FSA (forgot what model it is.)
    Grips: Stock
    Tires: Maxxis High Roller Super Tacky 2.35
    Wheels: Stock Alloy Rims (Pretty tough)

    I love the frame though. Did AM/FR/DH with this bike and it still holds well. Except for some components though.

    Washed the bike. This was before i changed my pedals and crankset.


    Same thing. But with my THE sportline mud guard.


    After some trail action.


    How my bike look now. With the cranks and all. Don't mind the human behind it. And no, it's not me.


    Syncros Gain and AM stem will be on soon. They'll be white in colour. Juicy 3's going on.. Do you guys think i should get a Revelation or a Pike? Think my bike could handle the travel? Most of the bikers in my area said my frame could stand it, as it's oversized and all? Travel will not be exceeding 140mm.

    Gettting Mavic 729's soon. And Sunline black grips to even out the white handlebar.

    Cheers. Nice bikes you guys have there. Comments welcomed.

    Big blue

    Well, I seem to have a picture of a hardtail AM bike so I thought I might throw it in the mix.
    It's a Norco Rampage in Large, Travis Triple Intrinsic 180, Saint hubs, cranks, rear derailleur, Deore Dual Control shifters and brake calipers (they work as well as the expensive Shimano offerings, just a little heavier is all) Syncros deep cup headset, Race Face Diabolus bar, Truvativ XR 60mm stem, Ruffian lock ons, 22/32 x 11-34 XT cogs, Wipperman 909 chain, Mavic 325 ghetto tubeless to Hutchinson Python 2.3 MRC medium tires, Thomson post and old school Bontrager saddle. I switch between DX flats and Eggbeater clips so there are no pedals on it.
    It appears to weigh around 38 pounds, but there are no parts on it that I have managed to break so it suits my 225 pounds just fine. It climbs slow, but ridiculously well and you can imagine the descents are not an issue.

    Well, it was a good try.

    Yes I am sure you have no problems with decents
    There's a party in my mind and I hope it never stops.

    dude... i wouldnt go anywhere over 120mm on that bike... A lot more to do with whether the bike can handle it or not... You're gonna mess up the geometry and it's going to suck pumping and through the corners...

    btw, which parts of Malaysia are you from? I was from Penang... XD

    I'n in KL dude! xD Heard the news about one Urban DH that's going to be held in KL? It's gonna be around October. CG, Sam Hill, Peaty, Athertons and more will be coming down.

    Hmm. I thought about that. But what forks can you recommend that has 120mm of travel, is as good as a Pike/Revelation and has around the same costs?

    Cheers.
