    Big fan of the white housing on the pig. I x 9 Blue Pig is definitely the most versatile bike I've ever been on. You feel like you can ride anything fast. Anything.

    Nice rig, Mr Blksocks!

    2004 Colnago Oval MTB

    My bike is almost finished. It is a 2004 Colnago Oval MTB. The frame is Columbus Airplane aluminum tubing. It has Chris King ceramic BB, headset, and hubs. The components are all XTR with the exception of the discs are XT. The fork is a Fox F100 RLC with kashima. I still need to cut the steerer but waiting until the rest of the bike is complete.

    @mojavejohn, no offense, just joking about it. There are lots of XC bikes that get posted in this thread. But it's intended for the > XC < FR variety.

    Bigger fork, shorter stem, wider bars, slacker frame... and you'll be on our side

    I have been wondering the same when I hit this thread.

    I don't consider my bike AM at all, but it seems to fit better than a lot posted here. 2.35 tires, short stem, 1-9 drivetrain, hydro-discs, etc.

    Theoretically it does, but through a dedicated xc bike down a dh run more than a couple of times and see what happens, plus you wont be able to do everything comfortable. But lets please not open this can of worms for the 12302734908269876348917263 time.

    +2 on that comment. People are buying into the particular hype and trying to justify their reason for it.

    Missed this.

    What's wrong with mechanical disc? They provide the same stopping power as hydraulics just a tad heavier?

    Upset

    Yep, it's all marketing hype. They take the same mountain bike they've been making since 1985 and just call it by a new name every few years to get you to buy another one.

    There's nothing different about these two bikes...

    Nothing wrong with mech discs at all. I have one on one of my bikes. I wouldn't go as far as to say it's as powerful as my hydros but it does a job.

    +1....and for the most part a heck of a lot easier to work on and maintain. Although I have top shelf hydro's on two of my bikes my around town beater 29er has BB-5's and work very well.

    You hurt my pigs feelings with that mech. comment. Now he's a bit porkier after your cleared that up.

    Forgot to mention. Love that On-One. It was one of my choices along side the Ragley and NS Surge.

    Yeah, I keep looking at the 2012 Surge with its sliding dropouts. If there's one thing I'd change about the Pig, I wish I could run it singlespeed without a frame-mounted tensioner.

    And was that comment by vespa14 in Tagalog?

    I would have gotten the Surge but they pushed it back from November of last year to January of this year to March of this year. I said, **** it. Not worth my time. The pig feels really beefy and looks beefier than the Surge, imo. I think getting the Pig was the best choice.
