    I know it's not much to look at but I like it. I bought the Raleigh complete in '98 or '99 and have since put around $3000 into it in various part and labour. Gone through 3 sets of shocks, countless rubber (tubes included of course), two bottom brackets, 4 sets of brake pads, 2 computers, 3 wheels, 2 seat posts, 2 sets of brake components, a pair of grips and one head set. Thant just what I can recall in the past 10 years or so. I bought it from Liberty! Bicycles or Cyclepath (LBS) back then. They treat me right, they're great people.
    I know it's a little dirty but I havn't had a chance to clean it since I got caught in the rain 2 days ago. I call it "Ike", by the way.

    Frame: 1998 Raleigh Serengeti
    Fork: 2007 Rock Shox Tora 302's
    Brakes: Shimano Deore XT
    Cranks: Shimano A
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR
    Pedals: Good 'ol Wellgo's
    Stem: Zoom
    Handlebar: Zoom
    Seatpost: Shock Post, can't remember what.
    Saddle: Specialized Gel
    Bottom Bracket: Titanium something or other
    Cassette: unknown from crappy steelie
    Headset: FSA Orbit
    Grips: New but unknown. They're OK.
    Tires: Specialized Hardrockers (26x1.95)
    Wheels: Unknown steelies (Spinergy 4-spoke CF destroyed in accident Aug. 06)
    Weight: Guessing 25ish lbs.







    Where am I? And how the hell did I get here?

    As someone who was riding mtbs when they came out, and used them extensively, it is kind of funny.

    If you lived in an area where it was almost perpetually wet, like NW Washington, those Magura rim brakes were the only brake going that you could count on to stop you year 'round. Sure were hell on rims, though

    Magura still makes them, and more than a few trials riders I know use them. And guys like belvedere86 who are happy with rim brakes.
    If you go looking for trouble, you can be sure it's gaining from behind.

    ^^^^^^^

    was about $1300+-, only reason to get it as a full bike is coz i didn't have anything to start with, yes they are from poland, and yes they've got really sick bikes...

    frame only is relatively cheap, as it's a full steel frame, and not expensive steel...

    I couldn't ride a bike that heavy. Too inconvenient. Mines about 25 lbs right now and I'm still trying to lose some bike-fat.

    Something a tad unconventional:

    06 Speshy Hardrock Sport
    Shimano Hollowtech I cranks, single 32T ring
    8speed crummy sram drivetrain
    supergo launch wheels
    formula oro K24's 160R 180F
    2006 Marz 66SL set to 140mm travel

    New head angle is sitting at just north of 69*, bottom bracket @just below 12.5"

    It's hell on wheels is I've ever ridden it. Rolls fast, still rails corners, and the fork takes anything I can throw at it. Slacker angles give me better stability over the stock XC geometry. Great fun and just a little sketch with that bonty rear tire

    Next upgrade: cranks that aren't bent because of crashes/rediculous power from mashing up hills

    Here is my hardtail. Its a K2 Zed 3.0 all stock except for the pedals which are Shimano M540 clipless.

    I was wondering if you guys would consider this AM or XC? I ask because, I notice a lot people have mixed feelings about what hardtail falls into what category. I ride really rough trails and would consider myself more of an AM rider, but not sure since the definition of AM rider is so vague and openended.

    Also, what would you do to make this bike more suitable for AM riding? I've only been riding for a few months so I'm still learning.

    You like steep, quick and technical descents but like to earn your way to the top, don't wear tights for riding, don't shave your legs and jump every once in a while. If your bike does all that and handles it. It's an all mountain bike. depends on you

    it looks a little on the softer side of all mountain... myself I find the definition of an am hardtail is a bit burlier than a normal xc but it still has the ability to climb well the only thing I would do is to upgrade parts as they start to wear out otherwise that is a decent ride and the definition of AM is up to you
    Keep on Ridin

    My Do-It-All

    Here's mine. Sorry for some of the pic quality though. Planning to take better ones.

    It's still stock-ish i know. But big things are going its' way. So far i've only changed the tires, pedals and crankset. Syncros Gain and AM Stem making it's way in soon.

    Frame: 2007 Giant Yukon 14" ALUXX FluidFormed frame
    Fork: 2007 SR Suntour XCM-MLO 100mm
    Brakes: Tektro IO Mechanical Brakes (6" rotors)
    Cranks: Truvativ Hussefelt
    Front Derailleur: Shimano SIS (not in use anyway. single ring now.)
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano Acera 8-speed
    Pedals: Tioga DX Comps.
    Stem: Giant Racing 90mm
    Handlebar: Giant Racing
    Seatpost: Giant Racing
    Saddle: Stock. Apparently it's something from WTB.
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano
    Cassette: Shimano 8 Speed
    Headset: FSA (forgot what model it is.)
    Grips: Stock
    Tires: Maxxis High Roller Super Tacky 2.35
    Wheels: Stock Alloy Rims (Pretty tough)

    I love the frame though. Did AM/FR/DH with this bike and it still holds well. Except for some components though.

    Washed the bike. This was before i changed my pedals and crankset.


    Same thing. But with my THE sportline mud guard.


    After some trail action.


    How my bike look now. With the cranks and all. Don't mind the human behind it. And no, it's not me.


    Syncros Gain and AM stem will be on soon. They'll be white in colour. Juicy 3's going on.. Do you guys think i should get a Revelation or a Pike? Think my bike could handle the travel? Most of the bikers in my area said my frame could stand it, as it's oversized and all? Travel will not be exceeding 140mm.

    Gettting Mavic 729's soon. And Sunline black grips to even out the white handlebar.

    Cheers. Nice bikes you guys have there. Comments welcomed.

    Big blue

    Well, I seem to have a picture of a hardtail AM bike so I thought I might throw it in the mix.
    It's a Norco Rampage in Large, Travis Triple Intrinsic 180, Saint hubs, cranks, rear derailleur, Deore Dual Control shifters and brake calipers (they work as well as the expensive Shimano offerings, just a little heavier is all) Syncros deep cup headset, Race Face Diabolus bar, Truvativ XR 60mm stem, Ruffian lock ons, 22/32 x 11-34 XT cogs, Wipperman 909 chain, Mavic 325 ghetto tubeless to Hutchinson Python 2.3 MRC medium tires, Thomson post and old school Bontrager saddle. I switch between DX flats and Eggbeater clips so there are no pedals on it.
    It appears to weigh around 38 pounds, but there are no parts on it that I have managed to break so it suits my 225 pounds just fine. It climbs slow, but ridiculously well and you can imagine the descents are not an issue.

    Well, it was a good try.

    Yes I am sure you have no problems with decents
    There's a party in my mind and I hope it never stops.

    dude... i wouldnt go anywhere over 120mm on that bike... A lot more to do with whether the bike can handle it or not... You're gonna mess up the geometry and it's going to suck pumping and through the corners...

    btw, which parts of Malaysia are you from? I was from Penang... XD

    I'n in KL dude! xD Heard the news about one Urban DH that's going to be held in KL? It's gonna be around October. CG, Sam Hill, Peaty, Athertons and more will be coming down.

    Hmm. I thought about that. But what forks can you recommend that has 120mm of travel, is as good as a Pike/Revelation and has around the same costs?

    Cheers.

    You could probably lower a Pike or a Revelation via spacers.

    No problem man. Care to chat on MSN? haha. Yeah.. The scene is really growing. Just had the 3rd round of a DH competition held in Kiara today. Wet track, good stuff.

    Oh, and i could get these spacers from RS? or i'll just use the U-turn?

    Here's my new bike (although I'm still not sure of really what difference there is between all-mountain and XC!)

    So here goes anyway XC or all-mountain regardless. I built it out of various bits and pieces after my last frame cracked.

    X-9 mechs and shifters, BB7 brakes with SD levers, a tough as old boots Marzocchi EXR Pro Air fork 120mm (what can I say, I'm too cheap, or rather skint, to buy a new one), Halo Freedom Disc wheels and a load of other bits that go to complete a working bike.

    haha. i'm not suprised =P. Over here, we're quite satisfied with what we have. Anything goes, as long it works. I've did DH on a XC fork. As long as it works man.

    But now that the bug has got me, time to upgrade.

    New Old Rumble Build

    -
    -
    I thought I’d post my finished Rumble build. All work was done by me, except the frame prep (BB shell chase/face, HT ream/face).
    -
    -





    My goal for this project was to build a cheap, fun, all around hardtail to beat on. I wanted solid mid level components at low cost. I planned to make it a 2x9, but it would have required me to change some parts I already had, (BB/tires/FD) so for now it’ll be a 1x9.

    I wanted a little different look, so I chose white wheels/bars. The tires are overkill, but with no rear suspension, they’ll help. They’re also lighter for their size at around 900 grams each. Intense lists them as an “all purpose” tire. I guess I’ll see.

    Most parts were bought over a period of 3 months, and I managed to find a lot of good deals. I cheaped out on a couple minor pieces, but hopefully that won’t come back to bite me. As usual, it cost more than I thought it would, but the fun is well worth it. This was my third bike build, and I’m into the whole process. Research, Buy, Build, Tweak. especially Build/Tweak. I haven’t set the fork up properly yet, but I’ve been researching it, and I’ll be pulling it apart soon. It isn’t a great fork, but properly tweaked it should be fine for me.


    Here’s the component list:

    Frame: 2004 Mountain Cycle Rumble Aluminum

    Fork: 2006 Marzocchi Drop off-1 130mm, SSV, ETA, 20mm axle

    Wheels: 2008 Azonic Outlaw

    Tires: Intense 2.5 909 EXDC Lite Dual compound

    Tubes: Continental Presta valve

    Crankset: 2007 Truvativ Hussefelt 175mm, Salsa 32t Ring, FSA Clear Bashguard

    BB: 2007 Truvativ Howitzer 51mm chainline

    Cassette: Sram PG 970 11-34t

    Derailleur: 2006 Shimano LX M580 GS

    Chain: Sram PC 971

    Shifter: 2006 Shimano LX M580

    Cables: Shift-Shimano LX/SP-41, Brake-Shimano LX/M sys

    Brakes: 07/08 Avid BB7 Disc, 165mm Clean Sweep Rotors, FR5 Levers

    Bars: Azonic Strip Bar 31.8

    Grips: Oury Lock On

    Stem: Truvativ 60mm 7 deg Holzfeller, with Hussefelt clamp

    Headset: FSA PIG, Two 5mm alloy spacers

    Seatpost: Titec Hellbent silver 30.9mm

    Collar: Kona Wingnut 34.9mm

    Saddle: WTB Speed V

    Pedals: Wellgo Platform (V8 copy)

    my hardtail too! (fresh from the trail )


    on the road


    & on the trail


    Bike set-up; '03 M5 Specialized frame, Spinner Point fork, Truvativ X-flow crankset, KHS alloy stem & riser bar bar(pull-out from my KHS FS), Ritchey double wall OCR Pro Rims & Tires, Shimano Deore V brakes, Shimano Alivio F & R derailleur, Shimano cassette, KMC Z82 chain(again, pull-out from my KHS FS), IMO, an old & unexpensive bike which is still reliable in my every ride!

    Maybe after I get the brakes sorted... and figure out if the bar is good or needs shortening... and find a better background...

    I don't believe I've posted this one in the AM section yet:









    NOS Jamis Komodo Team frame
    Fox Vanilla R Fork PUSH'd
    FSA Orbit Z Headset
    Thomson X-4 Stem
    Thomson Elite Layback post
    Easton EA 70 HiRise bars
    WTB Rocket V Team Ti saddle
    Odi Yeti Lock-On grips
    Avid Juicy 5's 180mm / 160mm
    Shimano Hone 2 crankset with steel pedal inserts
    Raceface Race Rings 32t middle ring
    Blackspire Blackguard inner guide ring
    Hone/ Saint Bash
    RF Diabolus Bottom bracket cups
    PC971 chain
    XT 11-34 cassette
    Hope Pro II hubs
    DT EX 5.1d rims
    DT Comp spokes with brass nippy's
    Kenda Excavator 2.35" DTC tires
    LX 9sp. Shifter
    XT Shadow RD

    26.25lbs

    Still not satisfied with the fork. It's great, don't get me wrong. I think I'm saving up for some sort of 20mm TA fork like a PIKE or a Marz 4x WC.
    A good "all'rounder" for sure though.

    Hmmm...I'd probably do it for the right offer. You may have noticed that I cancelled the auction 2x. The second time...I felt bad about selling it w/o changing oil. I changed the oil and was blown away by how smooth and plush it was again. I decided to yank the auction and keep riding it. I'm kinda torn b/c I want a 20mm TA fork. PricePoint has a Nixon Super for 229.00 and I'm still considering that. I may still sell the Vanilla and do the Nixon. My only reservations are that the Nixon is 8mm taller and it's an air sprung fork. It wouldn't be quite as plush as the Vanilla, nor woul the internals be quite as durable. But I'm not a freerider, so the Nixon may fit my style nicely. I'm tormented.

    Not many of them here, as this is the All Mountain forum.

    Some people can handle pretty interesting terrain on lighter bikes too, though:
