    I'm so glad to have found this thread. After going to my LBS last weekend and looking at the price for new FS rigs, I'm pretty sure my next bike is going to be a AMHT. I've really been eyeing the Guerrilla Gravity Pedalhead. I'm surprised I haven't seen one posted here.

    Badass bike man, how many mm you running in front ?? And tire width too if you don't mind. Just getting some ideas. I run 140mm on my dragon pro and I'm thinking of 2.4's instead of the stock 2.1's. thanks man

    Running 140mm pike, I9 Hubs laced with 40mm internal rims, 27.5, 3.0 width Specialized Purgatory tires. You can pick up pedalhead steel frame for about $900 bucks Made in Denver.

    65degree ha, super short stays. Stiff but supple. Climbs excellent and able to clean more things than my stumpy evo.

    Awesome man !! That is definitely a bike made for the mountain. I just picked up the Jamis dragon pro, the frame is a 853 Reynolds steel. Hoping to see what it can handle soon. I just gotta get rid of those 2.1 tires lol Heres a better pic of mine.

    Check out the specialized 2.6 purgatories 27.5. Not sure if those would fit or not in your dragon frame/fork.

    They probably won't fit if you need mud clearance, I've got a dragon pro as well, it's definitely built like a tank! I swapped the fork on mine for an x fusion slant though, I'm running 140mm of travel and enjoying the extra stiffness of the 34mm stanchions.

    What tires are you running man ?? And how do you like your dragon pro ?!? I just got it about 2 weeks ago. Do you use the dragon as a more aggressive trail or more xc ? Thanks man

    I'm running 2.25 Nobby Nick/ Racing Ralph that I got a for a steal, I'll be bumping up a size whenever they are worn out though.
    I ride mine pretty hard, it's my only mountain bike and I've taken it on multiple trails where my riding buddies say I need to bring a FS bike...
    I've had it almost a year now, and have several upgrades:
    1x conversion with Race Face Turbine Crank,
    X-Fusion fork (came with a Fox 32, looks like yours has a RS thigh?)
    KS Southpaw dropper remote
    ODI grips (much softer)
    Brooks Cadmium saddle
    50mm stem

    Looks good! Reminds me of raw finished frame, which I have always liked. How long have you have had that dropper? How do you like it?

    Cheers mate. I have only had the bike complete for a week and a handful of rides, so it is hard to give a good review of the dropper. First impressions are good, quick action, comfortable lever, no sag (like my reverb) and looks very well made. My mate has had the same for a couple of months and hasn't had any issues. For less than half the price of other droppers i am happy with it.

    The last of the Taros

    Bought this 2015 Kona Taro 1.5 years ago - L size (182cm guy here), used 4 months, as new condition, 1/2 price (guy wanted to try AM hardtail, so bought cheap Taro, liked it and bought the new expensive Honzo afterwards) - I am a roadie/CX guy, never had MTB before so wanted to try one, something that should be fun, no fiddling with rear-suspension (loosing too much time with maintenance of other 4 bikes already)...
    After 1.5 years I enjoy riding this MTB more than the other bikes Take the road bike out into the mountains on nice sunny days now. Taro is real fun! Was into competitive road bike rides/races before, but going outdoor with the bike, not having to hold tempo and go full gas all the time and enjoying everything around is definitely more pleasure. Of course not so comfy as some F/S that I tried, but coming from road bikes I like stiffer back when climbing. It's also fun to hit trails here in Switzerland with a HT, cause 99% of the people ride some fancy expensive carbon F/S bike, so this one looks like an outsider

    Changed lots of stock components - handlebars to Kore red riser ones, stock stem to 60mm red FUNN stem, pedals to Reverse red flats, RD to 11spd XT, brakes to XT, crankset to 170mm XT with 30mm RF N/W chainring, cassette to 11-40 Sunrace, saddle to Fizik MTB, rear QR to DTswiss (pity it's not thru axle...)

    Next upgrades def. 11-46 in the back (lots of long climbs here), dropper seatpost (probably FOX Transfer, but the price...), new wheelset (these stock ones are heavy and can't go tubeless) and want to also buy a new fork. This stock 130mm Sektor Silver is OK - had it tuned up a little with different oil, now damps better then before - but want to go Pike/Yari/Fox34 instead when this one needs next service (can't do it myself and it's pretty expensive here in SUI) - just don't know which one and if I can maybe go 140mm, without compromising steep climbs...

    @shapiro -- Make sure to get to Blue Knob. State forest side has phenomenal climbs/descents, rocks. Resort side has ~20 miles of rocky tech and tight stuff. Best trails west of Rothrock.

    Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I'm loving the fork, but I wish the frame was longer/ slacker! What fork are you using? Mine came stock with a white fox32

    Finished building this up last night from bits and pieces laying around plus a few bargains, though the wheels are a tad pricey.

    Catching a little air off a stump near my house on my '16 DB Mason Comp. This bike continues to be a lot of fun.

    Not bad. The short back tends to let the front lift a bit in steeper situations, not bad, but it's there. IMO, the handling in turns and descending make it worth the trade off.

    Thanks...thinking I'm going to pull the trigger on it. Looks like I have to order it from a distributor in Canada who will ship to me (I'm in the US), which kind of sucks, but for the price, geo, and specs (boost) can't beat it.

    I've tried numerous fs bikes with the thought of 'upgrading' to one but every time I go back to my hardtail I seem to have more fun. That's why I've stuck with mine.

    Hard tails are cheaper and lower maintenance without losing out on the fun angle.

    I have both a hardtail and a full suspension, this is my 4th hardtail built, while my Specialized FSR I've only upgraded a few parts.

    I do seem to ride a lot more my hardtail bike than the full suspension, could possibly be because of where I live is mostly singletrack, my personal opinion this is where a hardtail shines over a full suspension.

    There is just something about that firm backend that I enjoy.

    I don't ride our Honzo exclusively but love the versatility and performance for pumpy and small jumpy terrain. I love it for driveway to trailhead rides. It's also good for short distance commuter use.

    Because with a 140mm fork, 150mm dropper post, slacked-out geo and 2.8" tires, it does everything I need a mtn bike to do, and does it well. There are different ways to push your skills - I generally prefer to do so by simplifying, rather than complicating. Friends I ride with scratch their head at this all the time - until I'm waiting for them at the bottom of the ride.

    Do it however you want to do it. You don't owe anyone an explanation.

    i have both, the hardtail is more fun while the FS is a better/faster performer.

    I will always have both but i use the hardtail twice as much as the FS

    Why hardtail?
    'Cause a) I have an almost unreasonable love for my Yelli Screamy, and b) the FS build I have drawn up on paper will cost over $6k


    While I'm here...

    Haha. What-ever.
    Still 120mm, but thru-axle lowers and "RCT3" conversion for the fork, Flow Mk3/XR4 front, Arch Mk3/XR3 rear, 30.9/125mm Lev Integra with a Wolftooth ReMote, and a Syntace Megaforce stem. Converted to SS(with a climbing gear) after just a few rides, and all was beautiful for a little while, but I just put gears back on it, and...well, now I'm shopping for a more aggressive rear tire, have added another bottomless token to the fork, and am looking at buying a 140mm Pike or 34.
    That 120mm Reba with upgraded dampers has actually been great for our rough, twisty trails at relatively low speeds, but is getting overwhelmed on rocky and rooty downhills as I've increased the speed, and started plowing over stuff that I had been avoiding or winding my way through.

    Personally, I don't really "stay" with it. I have a 6.5 inch trail bike that is my main squeeze. Try as I like, the hard tail will never be as fast or versatile as the FS bike, but the fun part is trying to get it there.

    I have an attraction to them I can't really explain, other than I started one in the 90's, so maybe a bit of a nostalgia factor is at play too.

    But the bottom line is fun. More, different fun.

    Hey Tugboat, nice Surge Evo. What year is it? I just pick up a 2015 frame and pulled most of the parts off my Gary Fisher Big Sur to get it up and running. I have been loving it so far. I have the large and it fits perfectly. A little bit smaller than the Gary Fisher and a little bit bigger than my bmx cruiser. I have the same color but did mine with orange and white. Will post up picks when I can.

    Hi guys, looking for a new frame. 29er, good slack geo, 142x12 rear spacing and rack mounts (for occasional bike packing and commuting duties).
    By now found only the Surly Karate Monkey.
    Any other ideas?
