    Thanks! The ride is good, though it weighs in the 32-33lb range, I can still throw it around pretty good. The fork is stock, '05 Marzocchi Drop Off 130mm. Doesn't really have much adjustability but works for now until it dies.

    Nice I just got my Rincon 3 days ago (olive colored) and I love it. They must ship with weak tubes or something because I popped my rear the first time I rode it and the front tire the very next day 'least you got a little more use out of yours.

    Thanks. I often go to HP (my fave), the Fells, Foxboro, GBF, etc., and try to make it to Lynn, Massabesic, Nam, KT a few times a year. I'm hoping to get the crew out to some epics in western Mass this summer. We'll see.

    This is a DS-1 frame that I picked up for next to nothing. Everything else I had laying around or got swapped when I upgraded my FS. Right around 30lbs... not bad for the $$$

    Help me ID my Mystery Bike... Please!!

    Here she is in all her glory. When I went to look at it, the guy said it was an Ellsworth. Really?? For $450?? I said I'd take it sight unseen over the phone. When I got there, this is what he had. I bought it for the sake of nostalgia (for $350). But What is It really??
    http://s305.photobucket.com/albums/n...ystery%20Bike/

    Someone has gotta know. Check the welds and under the seat tube. It's gotta be tell tele. If you know where to look... I clearly don't!!

    Thanks

    It's a "Can-of-ale" ... no one else has ever done welds in that fashion. No one else (in legit bike circles) has ever needed to hide their welds with bondo...Etc...quite so blatently(sp?).

    no i picked it up brand new. I think im going to let it go and get a specialized stumpy disc. i just dont like the geometry too much. the more and more i ride it the less i think it fits me.

    ^^ How do you like the five-0 so far? I am really considering getting one, but there are not many reviews on them.

    I just got it and have only been out once, so I can't give you too much feedback yet. It rides trails nicely and feels good going both up and down. I had it weighed at 33 and a half pounds. My only problem so far is some random chunk of metal that broke off the seatpost QR, but It still works fine. Also, the opposite shifting for the front and back is driving me insane (ie: left shifter uses the large paddle to gear up, the right shifter uses the small one to gear up), but that's all personal preference. I'll try and write something more useful about her in the next few days.

    not sure if this qualifies as all mountain. I'd call it "XC bike with some modifications to go faster down hill" - sort of a counterbalance for my overweight freeride bike.

    With the 70mm stem it is a blast on singletrack, feels a lot like a 4X racer. Fork is an old and flexy psylo, 85-125mm, seems to fit best if set to 100mm or less, no matter if up or down hill.

    Here is my '08 Diamondback response sport. Bone stock except for the blackburn front and rear lights and a set of redline alloy platform pedals(Because I snapped one of the original ones in half). I have riden the bike about 800miles since christmas of '07 and the only other problem was the front deraileur shifter broke, but not a necessity. Overall for only $450 it has been a great ride and has the looks to boot.

My only problem so far is some random chunk of metal that broke off the seatpost QR, but It still works fine. Also, the opposite shifting for the front and back is driving me insane (ie: left shifter uses the large paddle to gear up, the right shifter uses the small one to gear up), but that's all personal preference. I'll try and write something more useful about her in the next few days.
    I have owned a Five-O for about 60 days. I did not buy the complete stock bike... although after putting one together I would probably buy it complete now -- and just replace the wheelset and the components with those of my preference and save a few $$. I have equipt mine with Race Face Evolve crank, Sram Cassette, XT shifters - front derailleur - rear derailleur, Race Face Evolve bar, Avid mech disc's with RightOn cables and housing, Full length shifer cable housing, SunRingle wheelset-1750+/-grms(burly but reasonably lite), Kenda Nev's @ 2.3, thomson post and stem. I installed a RochShox Revelation 130mm fork - which changed the head angle a bit and quickened up the handling a bit I am sure -- but I like it! Looking at the specs I thought the head angle had a lot of room to play without significant negative effect... and I wanted to increase climbing ability, as I negotiate (up and down) steep terrain a lot. It weighs in right at 28lbs without pedals.

    I prefer hardtails... and currenty my other bikes are a Kona Kula (sub 24lbs) and a Kona Kula 2-9(28lbs+/-) - both of which I love. The Five-O is a very good alround bike. It climbs very well, not as well as either of my other two hardtails - but then that's not what it is specifically built for... It seems to acquire a great deal of traction when climbing steep tech terrain -- again not as good as the 29er, but a bit better (with less hardtail pedal pressure and body english manipulation required) than the lighter Kula 26er. It is pretty quick and likes technical terrain ... The bike loves speed - straight or curvy, downhill or level. Feels very solid going over anything, wheelies easily, manuals easily - although it's solid construction may shake your bones a bit when the rear comes over. The bike also just feels great in the air - frankly it just loves to fly, and seems to land "on it's feet" with a confident, solid but not harsh feeling everytime. It feels solid and burly at all times although it is pretty light -- it is a very confident inspiring ride. I like the bike a lot ... and intend to use it this summer for many epic length rides ... I have set it up so that very little can go wrong in the back country that couldn't be easily dealt with and then ridden home.

    I think it would fill the role of a great little AM hardtail very nicely for most anyone...

    Will be a while before I collect the bits to get it going, but it is going to be fun.

    Just dropped my Slacker frame off at a mates work to get it powdercoated- been sitting in my garage for about a year while I've hoarded all the bits for it, and sorted out getting reproductions of the sticker kit, which has been out of production for about 5 years!

    Honestly, cheap lights for a cheap bike. The rear light isnt all that big really im just a horrible photographer, and the front one is actually rather large but like I said it was inexpensive.

    LOL ...I'm kinda Jurasic Park myself (27 years older than the bike). I can still Kick Rocks though! The brake Therapy was $150.00 but Really, Really, solid and light weight, So it was worth it to me.

    I love this bike. It does it all. Got the frame for about half his regular price; not custom to me but, it was exactly what I wanted when shopping, and still is. At least for a hardtail.

    Hi.
    First post here.
    Every time I Google something for my bike, I wind up reading reviews from here. So I decided to register and log on.

    Riding a "mountain" bike on the flattest land on Earth (go look up Llano Estacado) may seem a bit ridiculous, like city boys with their four-wheel-drive trucks, jacked-up suspensions and big tires that never leave the pavement. But each to his own.
    I do manage to take my bike out and get it dirty. I've logged 366.4 miles according to my trip computer, probably 50-50 on road and off. Not much serious technical trail riding though.

    This is my second Novara. I've had it a few years. It replaced a Novara Arriba that I bought in the mid-nineties.



    A dashboard view from the driver's seat:

    Yeah, I'm a gadget junkie. I need some lights and maybe a GPS system.

    Frame: 2005 Novara Ponderosa HT, AN6 Aluminum, 13" frame (the smallest of four sizes they offered), Very Black / Colorado Red
    Fork: Manitou Axel (Elite? Catalog says "Axel Elite", but it's not written on the forks.)
    Brakes: Avid Single Digit 5 (Upgrade to disks is planned. Frame, fork, and hubs are disk-ready.)
    Brake Levers: Avid FR 5
    Cranks: Truvativ FireX 44a/32a/22
    Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore LX
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT
    Shifters: Shimano Deore LX, x3 front, x9 rear
    Pedals: Shimano M520
    Stem: Truvativ XR 3D
    Handlebar: Truvative XC-AM Riserbar
    Seatpost: Truvative XR
    Saddle: WTB Pure V (Race? Catalog says "Pure V Race", but it's not written on the saddle.)
    Bottom Bracket: Truvativ ISIS (What's a bottom bracket?)
    Cassette: SRAM 7.0 11/32x9
    Headset: WTB SC
    Grips: WTB WeirWolf
    Tires: WTB WeirWolf Comp w/DNA 2.1 26X49/54
    Rims: WTB Dual Duty XC 569 x 17/541 ERD
    Hubs: Shimano M475 disc
    Water Bottle Cages: Blackburn Mountain Cages
    Rack: Blackburn Mountain Rack
    Gear Bag: Novara (I never leave home without my junk bag.)
    Computer: Cat Eye Micro Wireless
    Heart Rate Monitor: Polar RS200 (Just got it and the bike mount for it. Only used it once on the bike so far.)

    Thanks. I figured it was something like that.

    I know what the other parts listed are (even if I'm not sure what a couple of the numbers and specs mean).
    Like:
    "Cranks: Truvativ FireX 44a/32a/22"
    I believe the numbers are the number of teeth on each gear.
    Likewise:
    "Cassette: SRAM 7.0 11/32x9"
    I'm pretty sure that the x9 means there are nine gears. And I'm guessing that 11/32 indicates the number of teeth on the smallest and largest gear.

    "Tires: WTB WeirWolf Comp w/DNA 2.1 26X49/54
    Rims: WTB Dual Duty XC 569 x 17/541 ERD"
    Once, when shopping for tires, I learned what all that crap meant. I've forgotten much of it. But next time I need tires or shop for wheels, I'll probably take the time to learn it again.

    My New Trek

    It wasn't my first choice, but damn, it was FREE! Got it with AMEX points...

    I have to admit, it makes me smile when I ride it, and that's what it's all about. I love the frame, and plan to upgrade components as I break them. Mostly stock for now, with new WTB Rocket Pro V saddle and Shimano M647 clipless platforms. New tires as soon as these wear down a bit. And by the way, i took off the reflectors since I took the pic

    I would appreciate your input/suggestions on how to improve the bike.

    Wow that's quite a guess!

    It is the biggest cement factory in Greece... It's pretty ugly and awfull but imposing at the same time... The matter is that it's destroying a wonderfull, full of trees and paths, hill....
