    Sexy...but Flexy. When I first got it there was virtually no rear braking power. I noticed that the seat stays would flex everytime I engaged the v-brake. Finally got the brake booster and all was/is good

    Actually, I originally built this bike for under 300 bucks with spare parts. (got the frame online for 180 and either already had, or got the rest of the stuff for cheap/free). I recently busted the rear wheel one too many times and decided to get a beefier rear wheel. So I guess it has cost me about 350 at this point. The bike weights a little above 27lbs.

    I really like seeing what is possible to ride on a such a stripped down bike. You can ride down almost any trail, unless it has huge manditory drops or gaps or something.

    Have you ever thought about trying 5-10 shoes? Those things are soo awesome for flat pedals. As someone how also rides clipless (use clipless on my Enduro with Sidis), I didn't want my feet to come off the pedals with flats. The 5-10s do the job really well. I was amazed. Check 'em out.

    Ehh its not that great of a fork. It came off of my IH Yakuza Aniki and was ridden on that for about 3 months. The fork has basically no adjustments at all and is not all that plush feeling. But I am a college student and it was laying around my garage and I decided to put it back to use on this project. The fork isnt all bad though. Its extremely beefy the stantions are super wide and the fork seems bombproof its just not that great of a ride compared to a high end fork.

    It's my everything...

    everything bike that is. I ride this thing anywhere and everywhere. Jumps, drops, trails, trails with jumps and drops. Really fast, really slow. Climbed up 8 miles straight, just to ride back down. I love this bike and can't imagine having another. It literally does everything. It's a Santa Cruz Chameleon with all the goodies.

    This is my 'AM/FR' hardtail hardtail; it's a Cotic BFe - Reynolds 853 main triangle. I'm 6'2" and it's a medium (17.5") frame.

    I went for sturdy, reliable kit rather than anything fancy; AM SL1 forks, 203mm Juicy 5's, X9 shifters and rear mech, XT front mech and chainset, Thomson post, Hope stem, Easton bars, SDG saddle... wheels are Magura branded DT 440 hubs and DT5.1 rims. Have just been converted (well, for a while anyway!) to single ply Maxxis Minions; they're a bit heavy and slow but the grip on non-surfaced trails is awesome - and I can run them at a reasonably low pressure without my lardy ass causes too many pinchflats.

    (I cannot sing the praises of the Rohlof SLT-99 chain enough; I am convinced of its contribution to transmission longevity. I have had two on different bikes for several months and neither shows any chain elongation. Also, the pin retention force is higher than that of even the SRAM Cross-step.)
