    Its called a Crud Guard (and I think the front version is called a crud catcher.)

    It can be found at http://www.nwmtb.com/.

    To be honest I think its pretty good. Does the job reasonably well and doesn't get in the way

    Here's my Hardrock

    I don't know if it is really considered All-Mountain, but I ride it damn near everywhere and have fun doing it. The Float 120 RL was by far my biggest splurge, but I got a good deal on Ebay and I made about $70 back on the old MZIII.

    Medium '06 Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc

    Upgrades:
    Float 120
    Thudbuster LT
    BB7s (185/160)
    SPD M520s
    XR 3D (60mm x 12 deg)
    Rogue lock-ons

    Stock:
    2x9 SRAM drivetrain
    Singletrack rims

    Soon to have:
    Rampage 2.35 front/Rampage or Small Block Eight 2.35 rear

    Eventually:
    WTB seat
    I'll probably replace the BB, hubs, and headset with nicer items as they wear out.

    I think it weighs about 29 lbs now, even with the thudbuster-I still have the hard seat post, but it is only a couple of ounces lighter.

    I put this together with spare parts I had lying around. The only things I had to buy were the bar, the rims, and the spokes.

    FRAME: 2006 Norco Manik
    FORK: Marzocchi 66VF
    WHEELS: KK front hub, Formula rear hub, Mavic EX721 rims, DT Swiss 2.0 spokes
    BRAKES: Hayes 9, 8" front, 6" rear
    BAR: Kona DH Riser
    STEM: Specialized Mobius
    GRIPS: Axiom Tattoo
    SHIFTER: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
    REAR DERAILLEUR: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
    CHAIN: Shimano HG53
    CASSETTE: Shimano LX
    CRANKSET: Raceface Evolve DH with MEC bashguard, 32T chainring, and a Dirty guide
    BB: Shimano XT external
    PEDALS: Wellgo platforms
    TIRES: WTB Weirwolf 2.55LT (Noxian NBX 2.3 front and Specialized Roll-X 2.0 rear in picture)
    SADDLE: WTB Rocket V
    POST: Truvativ XR

    Planet-X Armadillo
    Marzocchi AM2
    Avid BB7
    Saint Cranks with DRS (later replaced with LG1)
    SRAM X-9

    I already ordered a new frame which will host most of the components on the bike. The fork was always too long, works for downhill, but makes the front end wander... I think I'll make a fully rigid SS out of this.

    Hey everybody!

    I have updated my Devinci Hucker with a new lighter wheel set. Gone are the boat anchor doubletracks. I have replaced them with Sun SOS rims and Formula hubs.....things are much lighter now. Once the 2.5 Weirwolf's wear out I'll be getting lighter and narrower rubber too. As she sits now the bike weighs in at around 33 lbs.

    I'm gonna resurrect the thread here. My Norco Rampage. Does everything I ask, but the down is definitely easier than the up.

    I'm loving this thread, some really nice hardtails.
    "The Present" link below shows my husbands Alias upgraded & 130mm travel up front. It's my ride until I get my next bike, hopefully one in "The Future" link below.

    I'll play...

    06 Chameleon built with parts lying around as a trasher bike. Awesome geo for aggressive riding and corners like crazy it's like cheating! I takes me a while to adjust to my other bikes when riding super tight switchbacks after being on the lizard for a while.

    My 17" (L) 2006 Kona Stuff do-it-all



    I got this bike secondhand, stock and then upgraded. It's my first 'gravity' bike. I picked a U-turn 409 (coil) Pike, X9 drivetrain and I recently got a set Hope M4 discbrakes (not pictured yet). I've had it for about a year now and it has been used this far as an Urban Assault/streetbike, 4x and freerider. This set-up really works for me. The bike really shines on rough descents with the fork on 140mm and has exeeded my expectations so far

    I don't have a lot of 'action-shots' but here's is one dropping of a table in a local skatepark.

    Gotta love HT's. I have a semi-crappy Trek 3700, still all-stock, just did a little weight-saving. I'm saving up for a GF Tassajara, or maybe a Specialized Rockhopper. I've ridden both extensively, and couldn't imagine buying a Full-suspension bike.

    It is my least favorite. I have not taken the marin out yet, but the dmr is the most fun to ride, with the gt a close second. I have not found the right stem length on the leader to be totally comfortable.

    Here's my go-fast hard tail. Giant Formula 1 Composite. Just a little over 21.5lbs...that includes the pedals and bottle cages. Most interesting part may be the Paul's Components Thumbies...accept Shimano's 9sp drop bar bar-end shifters and convert them into retro-style top-mount thumb shifters. These are the lightest indexed shifters that can be run... but efficient ergonomics are sacrificed a bit. I've also got a Pugsley that I ride when speed is not the priority...and extremely loose or soft surfaces are. Two hardtails that are definitely near the ends of the two extremes.

    DJ bikes honestly make the perfect all round (not just AM, everything) bike.

    Reasons:
    • Its all in the fork. Im running a PIKE on mine. Something with adjustable travel and a lockout is needed. For AM riding I have my fork at around 120. DH - 140. Road and DJ's - 95.
    • As these bikes are hartails, that means you can comfortably ride them on road and cross country with out losing to much energy.
    • Being hartails also keeps the weight down. I was able to have beefy cranks and heavy wheels as the frame was light!
    • Tyres are extremely important. Holy rollers are light and get decent traction on the dirt. They also roll incredibly well on the pavement. That said I recently swithed to Kenda Small Block 8 to get a little more traction.
    Problems: The only suffering is I find is on steep climbs that need traction. There are few of them in my area but they are bad enough to make me consider a dually. I consider it for a little while then I come around and realise my bike is perfect.

    Single speed:
    I recently went single speed as I kept killing derailuers. It has made me much faster as I was constantly standing. This means I was able to lower my seat and handle the downhills as a different beast. I strongly recomend giving it a go. However, the longest SS ride I have been on was 10 miles. I wouldnt want to go on a longer ride.

    Hey all, I have been lurking on this thread a bit prior to building up this bike, my first AM rig!!! Definite lack of Specialists around here!!! I just built this up yesterday, after riding strictly XC bikes for a while I decided I wanted something a little more huckable. Fork is a Reba 100mm and I need to change it! Considering a Revelation 426 U-turn air. Wheels are cheap Rhyno lite on Deore hubs, I would like to swap those with a nice @2000g all mountain wheelset. Everything else will stay except the controls (deore dual control) may be upgraded if and when budget allows. Bike currently weighs just under 27lbs.

    Sweet!
    was one of the bikes i considered getting, didn't know it comes in white...

    suggestion;
    if u don't use the cage take it off, bet it'll look better without.

    Got to say I agree with you there, that's why I'm making my next bike an STP 0, already purchased the pikes for it!
    I reckon only taller / bigger people may be limited with regards to cockpit room, for me it should be ideal even for the long rides, and 1x9 will be plenty of gears.

    You know I've been looking at the geo numbers for heaps of different bikes (including the likes of Chameleon & Scirocco) and really there isn't that much difference. People say the short chainstays are the downfall when it comes to DH or XC riding, but then take a look at the overall numbers, the STP has a longer wheelbase than giants entry level XC bike (Giant Alias or Giant XTC) in a 17" size! The STP will have nicer all round geometry & really the only downside (which isn't a downside to me) is having to have a bit more of the seatpost sticking out for those XC rides.

    Haha yeah it will probably look a lot better with it off, but they tossed it in with my bike so I did not even think about it. as vain as it may be I will probably take it off soon now that I think about it.

    agreed, STP is a good frame for everything, just get a thomson seat post if u need more then abit sticking out.


    some minor upgrades, never would i have thought that getting new brake cables would make so much difference(in a good way of course), even when my cables(stock) aren't even 6mths old.

    headset, as good as it gets, don't think i'll ever need another headset.

    barends, can't get enough of skulls...

    saving for some wheels....

    My Stiffee

    I haven't posted here in a while tonight it warmed up from 28 yesterday to 65 today so I jumped out of work early and did some night riding. Not the best picture but shows some updates.



    It's a Cove Stiffee with '08 Fox Vanilla RLC XTR and XT bits Juciy 5 185 front 160 rear.
    Not in full gear missing the setback thomson and fizik saddle but those are on the trainer bike being used more often.

    There are some sweet bikes through here hope everyone uses them for what you or someone else built them for.

    Enjoy!

    I know I posted this bike on the last page but I have finally finished making the build more appropriate for all mountain use, got an 08 Fox Talas RLC fork, Spinergy Xyclone Enduro Wheels, and an Easton Vice AM Stem. Bike rides amazing and feels good in the mud (we finally have a little mud around D.C.) Also added the orange Acid pedals, giving clipless a try for AM use, I use eggbeaters on my XC bikes, this is my first AM bike. Any suggestions or opinions are greatly appreciated. Please note the seatpost is in "getting to the trail" mode. One thing I am considering is a Speedball R or Gravity dropper seatpost.

    £600/£700 To Spend On Hardtail

    I need to buy a Hardtail as a present for Christmas but only have £600-700 to spend.
    I think my best options are a Cannondale F4 or a Specialised Rockhopper Pro
    The person who is getting this wants a light bike so I presume the Cannondale is lightest but is it as good a bike as the Specialised.
    Should I be looking at any other bikes?
