    my new jamis

    just bought an 05 Jamis Komodo ... i think it fits the AM bill nicely

    I'll play...

    06 Chameleon built with parts lying around as a trasher bike. Awesome geo for aggressive riding and corners like crazy it's like cheating! I takes me a while to adjust to my other bikes when riding super tight switchbacks after being on the lizard for a while.

    My 17" (L) 2006 Kona Stuff do-it-all



    I got this bike secondhand, stock and then upgraded. It's my first 'gravity' bike. I picked a U-turn 409 (coil) Pike, X9 drivetrain and I recently got a set Hope M4 discbrakes (not pictured yet). I've had it for about a year now and it has been used this far as an Urban Assault/streetbike, 4x and freerider. This set-up really works for me. The bike really shines on rough descents with the fork on 140mm and has exeeded my expectations so far

    I don't have a lot of 'action-shots' but here's is one dropping of a table in a local skatepark.

    Gotta love HT's. I have a semi-crappy Trek 3700, still all-stock, just did a little weight-saving. I'm saving up for a GF Tassajara, or maybe a Specialized Rockhopper. I've ridden both extensively, and couldn't imagine buying a Full-suspension bike.

    It is my least favorite. I have not taken the marin out yet, but the dmr is the most fun to ride, with the gt a close second. I have not found the right stem length on the leader to be totally comfortable.

    Here's my go-fast hard tail. Giant Formula 1 Composite. Just a little over 21.5lbs...that includes the pedals and bottle cages. Most interesting part may be the Paul's Components Thumbies...accept Shimano's 9sp drop bar bar-end shifters and convert them into retro-style top-mount thumb shifters. These are the lightest indexed shifters that can be run... but efficient ergonomics are sacrificed a bit. I've also got a Pugsley that I ride when speed is not the priority...and extremely loose or soft surfaces are. Two hardtails that are definitely near the ends of the two extremes.

    DJ bikes honestly make the perfect all round (not just AM, everything) bike.

    Reasons:
    • Its all in the fork. Im running a PIKE on mine. Something with adjustable travel and a lockout is needed. For AM riding I have my fork at around 120. DH - 140. Road and DJ's - 95.
    • As these bikes are hartails, that means you can comfortably ride them on road and cross country with out losing to much energy.
    • Being hartails also keeps the weight down. I was able to have beefy cranks and heavy wheels as the frame was light!
    • Tyres are extremely important. Holy rollers are light and get decent traction on the dirt. They also roll incredibly well on the pavement. That said I recently swithed to Kenda Small Block 8 to get a little more traction.
    Problems: The only suffering is I find is on steep climbs that need traction. There are few of them in my area but they are bad enough to make me consider a dually. I consider it for a little while then I come around and realise my bike is perfect.

    Single speed:
    I recently went single speed as I kept killing derailuers. It has made me much faster as I was constantly standing. This means I was able to lower my seat and handle the downhills as a different beast. I strongly recomend giving it a go. However, the longest SS ride I have been on was 10 miles. I wouldnt want to go on a longer ride.

    Hey all, I have been lurking on this thread a bit prior to building up this bike, my first AM rig!!! Definite lack of Specialists around here!!! I just built this up yesterday, after riding strictly XC bikes for a while I decided I wanted something a little more huckable. Fork is a Reba 100mm and I need to change it! Considering a Revelation 426 U-turn air. Wheels are cheap Rhyno lite on Deore hubs, I would like to swap those with a nice @2000g all mountain wheelset. Everything else will stay except the controls (deore dual control) may be upgraded if and when budget allows. Bike currently weighs just under 27lbs.

    Sweet!
    was one of the bikes i considered getting, didn't know it comes in white...

    suggestion;
    if u don't use the cage take it off, bet it'll look better without.

    Got to say I agree with you there, that's why I'm making my next bike an STP 0, already purchased the pikes for it!
    I reckon only taller / bigger people may be limited with regards to cockpit room, for me it should be ideal even for the long rides, and 1x9 will be plenty of gears.

    You know I've been looking at the geo numbers for heaps of different bikes (including the likes of Chameleon & Scirocco) and really there isn't that much difference. People say the short chainstays are the downfall when it comes to DH or XC riding, but then take a look at the overall numbers, the STP has a longer wheelbase than giants entry level XC bike (Giant Alias or Giant XTC) in a 17" size! The STP will have nicer all round geometry & really the only downside (which isn't a downside to me) is having to have a bit more of the seatpost sticking out for those XC rides.

    Haha yeah it will probably look a lot better with it off, but they tossed it in with my bike so I did not even think about it. as vain as it may be I will probably take it off soon now that I think about it.

    Kylen what size is that? Seeing your pic got me interested in getting one of these. Looks like a good base bike for the price.
