    Thanks!

    It's definitely one frame that I haven't had the urge of dumping and trying something new next season (unlike my two previous 26er AMHT). Love my build, the way it rides, but could use better tires for wet/mud, the Ardents are great in the summer, fall weather not so much. Although an exact replica in titanium would be killer too, it could lose a few lbs but I don't see where I would make the cuts, everything's pretty much dialed.

    Your titanium N9 replica is pretty sweet too.

    choosing between 3 hard tails

    I need to choose in the next 2 or 3 days, one of these 3 hardtails. I do not know enough yet about the components to make a good decision and could use some advice. If all three were your size and setting in front of you which would you choose and why or why not. THANKS

    Nope, too busy riding.

    Took it trail riding yesterday, then took it to the bike park today. Dirt jumps, pump tracks and a dual-slalom course. It was awesome on all of them. I may even dump my DJ bike. This was nearly as good at the park and way better to ride there and back.

    I'll get to that stinger later.

    Hey, I have an old 2002 Raleigh hardtail, it currently has an 80mm Rockshox Judy II on it that came stock with the bike. I have been looking at forks with more travel but wasnt sure how much bigger I should go. I have read that you should only go 20mm over the factory size. I was looking at maybe a Rockshox fork with 140mm of travel, but I wasnt sure if this could potentially weaken my frame or cause any other damage. Let me know what you think, or if you have any recomendations.

    Its been a while since I posted any pics... + I just wanted to show it off some more... nice looking bikes everyone. I'll never get rid of this bike, partly because I can't afford another frame and because I love it so much. Only thing more that I could ask for is a dropper seatpost and a softer spring...

    Hi! I'm about to upgrade my XC bike and use as an AM bike, but i can't decide in some of the parts.
    Which one would be better? a Rock Shox Sektor RL Solo Air (2013) for 300euro or a Suntour Epicon X2 Rl R for about 220 euro? Both are 15mm thru axle.
    The other thing is that i can't decide that a Shimano Deore (M596) brake would be enought for Am or not.
    I don't know if my frame can handle a 150 mm fork but the geometry would be the same as an on one 456. (not the same but very similar)
    Could you help my a little bit for me? When my bike is complete i will post it up to this thread.

    Could you dell us more about the frame you already have? I believe it is not very wise to change the geometry of a frame which is designed for xc with longer fork. It could be dangerous – heat tube breaking.
    Some frames, like cotic Bfe can take a fork from100mm to 160mm. So what is your frame?

    it's not a popular worldwide frame, it's just a hungarian made alu frame with quite cheap things on it. I measure up some things in advance and write it down here. If the geo changing is really dangerous, i could put in the epicon (if i buy that) with a 120mm setup and when i get a better frame, for example a on-one 456 or something like that then i could switch back to 140mm. Could you recommend me some not so expensive frame? I try to change as many things on my bike as i can, cuz if a would change everything i could have rather buy a new bike. Now i have new wheels, stem, handlebar and i will buy new fork and brakes.

    ok. 71° for head angle is very common for xc. Am have less. A longer fork I believe will not give you what you expect for. In my opinion keep your money for an am frame. On one 456evo it is a very good choice for it's price.

    First Ride on the New ON-ONE 456C

    First ride on the new 456 Carbon frame, I built it up this week from the parts from a frame I broke a few months back. Only about 10 miles in the saddle so far, but the bike feels really fun and quick, even in the snow.

    I've been collecting parts for this build for a while...

    No real rides on it yet but should have some soon I hope. Probably going to be swapping out the stem in the next few days. Time to dial this puppy in!

    Actually 160mm. Was going to go with 170, but that might of been a bit much. It's a 14" frame.

    I briefly thought about putting a Totem on it because that would be awesome, but it's really overkill for this bike. Plus 180mm of travel would make the bike slack as f*ck. The HA, according to the On One site, is like 65.7 with a 150mm fork (w/o sag)... idk what it would be with 180. Probably like 64.5 maybe? crazy lol

    Just a pic of my bikes set up for what I love to do, which is fish. I don't usually put kickstands on my bikes, but its easier since my fishing spots don't have anything to lean it on.

    my Evil D.O.C.



    I replaced my mob with the doc to be more trail friendly, and it has proven to be a fantastic upgrade. Perfect timing, too, since my local skatepark just closed down.

    Still a little unsure of my 32/18 SS drivetrain. I'm riding it on east coast tech style trails with some respectable climbs, and I do have to push a bit which is annoying. Thinking about an easier ratio or eventually gear it up...

    You got it.

    Slack HT. Steeper ST. Longer travel front end. I ride a 100mm hardtail singlespeed otherwise so the Nomad just really felt like "cheating" and "dull" in terms of trail-feel.

    The Trans AM with that TALAS was a great choice for me.

    Just bought a second hand Transam for 1000 shipped to me. Can't wait! I ride a 2011 enduro that is all Cadillac 'ed out so it will be a nice change of pace.

    Some Cali winter shots & 1.5 headtube detail.

    Added an Easton DH stem and Stylo OCT cranks.

    Up next is adding the Formula brakes I've had sitting around. The problem is, the Hayes Nines that are almost 10 years old have been flawless So it's hard to move to a new brake on a winter focused bike.

    Coming from the blue 2012 color, I felt the same way at first, but the retro color scheme has really grown on me.

    That is quite a cut my friend. I have scars on my leg from my gears as well not as pretty as yours but have scars now.

    Anyways I have a question I need help with. Still running my stock cane creek headset loose caged bearing on my 2010 hardrock build. Running a 2012 rockshox recon solo air set to 5" travel. Suspension leaves a little to be desired as it is only turn key lockout. My question is should. Upgrade to a cane creek s-8, forty series or should I upgrade my fork with a argyle motion control damper with low speed compression dampening and flood gate adjustment. Just not sure how much abuse stock headset will take

    Hey shreddin22, I'm not the best guy to be asking about full suspension bikes yet. I'm in the market to buy one currently but if you need help about the best E.R.'s in the D.C. Metro area, hit me up

    Yeah Millfox, I've reviewed the wreck in my head over and over and still can't figure out how I managed to do this much damage either. I, too, have had plenty of chain ring tat's but nothing like this. 25 stitches outside, 18 inside and because it was so deep it ended up getting infected so I spent 4 days in the hospital and almost 9k in MEDICAL BILLS! Of course, I'm one of the millions of uninsured so I'll be paying on this long after the bike is gone. Oh well, the price you pay to do the things you love. Just gotta write it off...and keep riding!

    If your headset isnt ticking or indexing then it's working as well as a pricier headset.

    The Argyle Moco will make a huge difference. Be sure to check the levels of oil in the damper when you replace the cartridge.

    For now if you're having issues with the fork blowing through it's travel you can play around with adding oil on top of the air piston to make the fork more progressive. RS has moved away from oil on the spring side of their forks but it's still a good trick to make a linear feeling air fork more progressive. Not a replacement for good damping but something that could help in the meantime if you're on a budget.

    I don't know what a "rockring" is but I'm guessing it would have helped prevent gashing my leg to the bone It's funny, I just checked my other bikes and my cheap-o GT hybrid is the only one that does have a "rockring" on it and that bike is only used for commuter/road riding so it's a waste. None of the "mountain" bikes I've seen have a rockring on them. The only good thing about this accident it made me get off my ass and finally go buy a helmet. I've been riding for over 30 years (20 hardcore) and I kept telling my family/friends I had never really gotten hurt riding and I would get a helmet.....eventually. Well, eventually is here with a vengeance and even though I hate helmets, I really hate being a drain bramaged idiot more (although my girlfriend doubts there would be much difference even if I got in an accident w/out a helmet) Be safe d.n.s.and happy trails to you.

    I just did a fork service to extend it from 100mm to 120mm. And changed the fork fluid viscosity to a 10 weight instead of 5 weight. 127ml in the damper side. I think I will go with the moco upgrade and worry about the headset after that. Those are the only 2 other things my bike needs and I am all done buying stuff

    I figured the argyle is the damper to use as it offers adjustment. And the argyle is the only other fork that has steel upper tubes. I have heard I can't use the dampers from the aluminum rockshox

    Drop Ship Pimp2

    Haven't been on here for a while, see the threads changed title see the lighterweight rides cropping up. And a springer

    To balance out karma and the lighter things, dug out some of my Atomlab Pimp2, granted it's a bit more downhill than All Mountain in this set up, i will find the geared photos from racing Fort William (they made us ride up so thats All Mountain)

    Anyway, a blind race run, none of us knew what was ahead (apart from locals) i built up expecting to roll off the heli and straight down the steeper boulder face of Glencoe mountain to meet up with the downhill racetrack lower down. I went for steep riding and mech ripping rocks, so burly will survive intact.

    Glencoe is close to Fort William in Scotland, it's shorter than the WC track but more technical and more of a mech ripper.
