    My trail cruiser; it's been a lot of fun thus far! I opted for a trunk bag over a backpack and it's worked well thus far, but there are definite pros and cons! I like going out later in the day when the local trails are almost abandoned and the temperatures are more bearable, hence the light...and bear spray! Granted, I have yet to come across a bear and the deer just give me dirty looks!

    This sounds so awesome! what kind of dogs are you using? went on a sled dog tour this winter and was surprised that every dog was a mutt of some sort, huskys and hounds mainly. either way this sounds like a damn good time. any photos or videos?

    new to me kona steely. Got out of riding for a few years and now I am back and this season I have ridden a ton. Its heavy, not fancy and is build with a random assortment of parts.. I love it! I got back into the sport for around $500 (I had some parts laying around).. I couldn't be happier.

    Did a search for a Salsa within this thread and was a bit surprised to come up empty handed. Definitely time to remedy that!

    So then here is my 2011 Salsa ala Carte in AM config.
    - Seamless, Triple-Butted, Japanese-made Sanko Steel frame in 20" large.
    - BB height is 320mm with 26" wheels.
    - HT angle is 67.5 thanks to the 140mm revelation (down from an original 70" with recommended 100mm fork).
    - All in at 12.5kg incl. 2kg's of Hans Dampf Evo's.
    - Next move is to go 27.5" with a 12x135mm axle out back. Not many frames out there you can do that with...

    Attachment 914541

    Surely I cannot be the only one out there with a Salsa HT in AM guise?

    My 2Souls Quarterhorse, with full X01, Manitou Tower fork, Hope Tech 3 E4 brakes, Renthal bar + stem, KS LEV 150mm dropper post, Ryde Enduro rims with Hope Pro EVO II hubs, DT Swiss Competition Race spokes and black brass DT Swiss Pro Lock nipples.

    Running an Ikon 2.2 and 2.35 (tubeless) at the moment. Also have a 2.4 Ardent laying around, but I really like the the current setup.

    I have been thinking of buying a 140mm Pike, but can't really find a good reason to purchase that since I really like the bike how she is now! Maybe in the future when the Tower wears out

    I haven't posted any recent pics of my current setup, but not much has changed since the beginning, this season simply raised the bars 25mm and added a 40mm Chromag Ranger stem from the previous 50mm Thomson X4. Much better fit than before with the slammed stem. And finally went 142x12 Maxle Lite rear end after getting a new hub from Sun Ringle's great warranty department.

    Looking through this thread on ideas for a frame. I like the Dekerf Implant, though the manufacturer wants $2100 for the frame. Its tubing is Reynolds 853 with a stainless headset, a choice of 12 colors and sliding dropouts to run either 27.5" or 26" wheels. With a 120mm travel fork the head angle is 70*, the frame will utilize 120mm to 150mm of travel.

    I can get the same deal on a similar frame out of the UK for about $1300usd, what is making frames cost so much more in North America?
    Observe, report.

    What's the similar frame?

    Regards Dekerf, they're the super high end, they build completely gorgeous made to measure hand painted frames, with the price to match. Certainly not the kind of bike you buy with your head but the few I've seen in the flesh (in the tubes?) were just lovely.

    There are cheaper custom builders in the US (Curtlo and Waltworks spring to mind), but they don't do hand brushed flames like Dekerf do.

    Ragley mmmBop | 150mm | 1x10

    Here is the Ragley which I built up last year. Sadly have sold it now, what a fun bike it was! It was slow but sure progress up hill, but man it was intense going back down. It took a while to get used to the diving sensation from the 6 inch fork.

    Specs:
    Ragley mmmBop aluminium frame
    150mm Sektor, 20mm maxle, giving a generous 65 degree head angle!
    32t Raceface crankset
    1x10 with Zee shifting and 11-36 cassette.
    100mm X-Fusion Hilo dropper post
    50mm stem with 720mm Funn bars
    2.35 Hans Dampf and High Roller combo on 26x29.5mm Sun Rhyno-lites. This frame can take 2.5" in the rear!

    Freshly built

    Lots of trails in yonder hills.

    Hi guys. I have a 2014 Surge Evo and I am a little worried about the welding quality of the frame since my 2 first frames suffered from welding porosity but the 3rd one seems to be OK at least visually.

    Other than that I really like it.
