    My first proper AM HT

    Here's mine..
    An old frame actually, 2003 Cove Handjob.
    Hand painted and just finished built her up 3 days ago.
    As usual, the spec:

    RS Pike Team Coil U-Turn
    XTR Cranks, Shifters, Derailleurs, cassette and chain
    Chris King 20mm front hub
    Chris King rear hub
    Syncros DS28 rims
    Maxxis Highroller 2.1
    Thomson Elite seatpost and Elite X4 stem
    Easton Monkeylite DH bar
    SDG BelAir RL saddle..

    I don't know how it ride yet as I have not ride it on the trail except on the road in front of my flat, possibly going to change the bar to MonkeyLite lowrise bar as it's quite tall.
    Funny thing is, people with back problem will avoid HT and go for the full sus, but me broke my T12 on my RFX and switch to HT!! Still have the body braces on at the moment.
    Well at least it's a steel frame, it has springs "built-in"

    that Marin is nice
    nice diamond-shaped tubing, nice angles

    Well, it may not be a true AM, but it is a hardtail and it gets abused like one. And no, i don't have silky smooth Nair legs or tights... Just a little Trek 4500. New and Stock, so i still like it. Except for the seat, seatpost, tires, and need some clipless. Oh, and that goober water bottle holder.....All changing soon. An no, i didn't even want disc brakes... Sounds weird, but i'm used to the modulation of Vs, and discs throw me off. Quirky... yes. OCD... yes. Crazy...

    Just realized.... This is the ALL MOUNTAIN Hardtail thread.... yet there is no AM Hardtail review section.... Does that make everyone that rides a hardtail some kinda of ba$tard biker? Or freak of nature? You all realize you don't even fit into a MARKETING CATEGORY?! These are the same people that attempt to and can make a cigarette attractive to an infant, and apparently there is no "place" for you in that kind of world. What can you possibly be thinking to believe a hardtail can climb a mountain and then speed down the other side? Ouch. Someone please tell me how this could have happened?
    1x9 Hardtail, yummy.....

    not really a noob question at all is it? That's pretty much what got me wondering how there can be an AM hardtail thread, when it doesn't appear to be recongized as a class of bike in the first place! Is there actually a manuf. that builds and markets a hardtail for AM? Or do they just add some beefier parts to surround the same frame design on a roadbike and call it a "mountain" bike? Kinda makes you wonder when you look at a pricetag doesn't it...

    am hardtail: beefier frame, slacker head tube, longer travel fork, big tough wheelset. goes down fast and hits the big drops. lot of other little details, but thats the gist of it.

    don't even think. just get it. my chameleon is the most fun and versatile bike i have ever owned. xc, dj, street, light fr, am/trail, i've had it built for all of them and it was amazing at each. right now its built super burly for light fr and dh and i still use it for all my xc rides to.

    and good lord does that bike rail the turns, its scary fast through corners.

    Aren't they supposed to be pretty stiff? Does this translate into a harsher ride?

    I want something that I can use for the pump track, urban and some trail duty. The chameleon looks like it may work.

    yeah its pretty stiff, but the extra feedback also means extra control. i get on a full suspension or a flexy ht and i feel like i'm steering a bus anymore. on the pump track with my fork dropped to 115 my chameleon FLIES.

    also for pump/dj and urban, when you set it up single speed it feels like a 26" bmx. so nice.

    Right, I know Brant and his On-One's are popular over on the 29er forum. But I dont see many of his 26" wheeled bikes mentioned on the other forums. Well, here is my NEW Summer 456.
    Geo is the same as the previous one (I had one in 'That' blue which I loved and regretted selling) and as I was missing my old flame, bought a newer more relaxed version. Here she is (my garage- maiden ride pics tomorrow)
    Future upgrades are going to be a better wheelset and a set of Pikes...
    Frame is blasted and then clear coated looks pretty cool!

    Yep, clearcoat over blasted steel finish. As per the Gimp. Head angleis (according to Brant) 66.6 deg but obviously that changes with A2C height. Much slacker than the 'proper' 456 and much better on the downs as a result. Front end is still planted whilst climbing, so it gets a big from me!

    The Banshee

    Upon seeing the Banshee Scirocco earlier in this thread I fell in love.

    Im getting one. Somehow.

    What a drop dead gorgeous bike. Now how to shoe-horn it into a $1700 budget.

    You can but it might take a while. No bling, just function. Look for bargains on stuff: I got a NIB 2004 Marzocchi Z1 FR for practically a steal when a LBS was getting rid of a batch of old stuff.

    Re : Hardtail Thread

    Hardtails are bikes with rigid frames and suspension forks. Despite the ever-growing popularity of full suspension bikes, the hardtail is still the mainstay of mountain biking. They're reliable, capable and you get a lot of bike for your money.

    Nervous

    I've built computers but I've never built a bike. But I figure they must be similar. Right? Right?

    Kidding. But I would be nervous about building up a frame having never done it before. I don't know what parts are compatible with each other having been out of the mountain bike scene for so long.

    That and I have nothing to ride in the meantime. Damn my impatience!

    But...now that I've seen this bike Im seriously considering jumping into this project.

    Anyway. If this conversation continues Ill set up a new thread. Don't want to hijack this one.

    Im on my first build too and believe it or not it is alot like building a computer, if your into the hardware aspect you'll be fine with some research but my problem is i dunno the "Soft Ware" so the cables and shifters are gonna be a pain when i get to them. Shimano and Sram Components are usually compatible with each other. what i do is i go to my LBS and ask questions and just hang around with some of the mechanics.

    I've sort of built up one bike. I got the BB and headset/fork installed at a LBS (special tools needed to make sure the surfaces are straight). The rest is not too hard.

    on the mk4 r32 forum since spring of 2003, and by now, i am so burned out on the same old questions, and annoyed with a lot of the folks there, and their drama, that i lurk, but avoid posting at all cost.

    i often chime in on the mk5 r32 forum, either to impart applicable wisdom, or else to tease them. they're so sensitive, and defensive, .. it's really fun.

    i post fairly regularly in the rocky mountain forum, and occasionally in the photography forum.

    i am also frequently in the shoutbox at rdefined.

    time to whore some pics, i reckon

    if you plan to ride in the woods EVER you need to take it off before it either a) catches on something on the trail and makes you crash, hard. or b) pops down unexpectedly while jumping or going over some rough downhill sections and cause you to crash, REALLY hard.

    c) catches on something, gets twisted sideways, and goes through your leg.

    oh I know actually from experience.The only reason I said people will continue to crack on you was b/c he said he wasn't taking it off. I wasn't trying to say we are all bullies and were going to make fun. Safety is and should be our main concern.
    Be safe /have fun
    There's a party in my mind and I hope it never stops.

    I got a fiver that it will snap off bounce off a rock spin up and spear his riding buddy in the eye. Then he will say "I should've listened to those Mtbr superheros"

    don't waste your money replacing perfectly good drivetrain. If you wanna blow some cash, get a fork with 32mm stanchions and decent damping. The drivetrain will wear out just fine with use. Or ride the crap out of it, then get a nicer bike.
    I like cheap stuff that works great and is very sturdy.

    Man that bike brings me memories, my first real mountain bike was a Hawk Hill. I got it when I was 10 and is still running now used by my little brother. Nothing close to stock but the frame is still intact.

    Nice. Anyone have the 08 Hawk Hill with the sloping tube? I've been thinking about getting a full squishy, but I'm a sucker for that frame.

    specialized forks from a hardrock

    Thanks!

    It rides absolutely awesome. Big difference to my old Spec. P.All Mountain with alu frame.
    I really like the advantage steel frames give me. Handles very well in technical and gnarly terrain.
    With the new Fox float the bike is lighter than Spec. as well, 27.8lbs to be more precise.

    I was looking at the CORE (Surge as frame only), but found this more agile.
