    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.

    This bike is gorgeous!!! I know what my next hardtail is gonna be. Excellent work with the mods!!!

    agreed, STP is a good frame for everything, just get a thomson seat post if u need more then abit sticking out.


    some minor upgrades, never would i have thought that getting new brake cables would make so much difference(in a good way of course), even when my cables(stock) aren't even 6mths old.

    headset, as good as it gets, don't think i'll ever need another headset.

    barends, can't get enough of skulls...

    saving for some wheels....

    My Stiffee

    I haven't posted here in a while tonight it warmed up from 28 yesterday to 65 today so I jumped out of work early and did some night riding. Not the best picture but shows some updates.



    It's a Cove Stiffee with '08 Fox Vanilla RLC XTR and XT bits Juciy 5 185 front 160 rear.
    Not in full gear missing the setback thomson and fizik saddle but those are on the trainer bike being used more often.

    There are some sweet bikes through here hope everyone uses them for what you or someone else built them for.

    Enjoy!

    I know I posted this bike on the last page but I have finally finished making the build more appropriate for all mountain use, got an 08 Fox Talas RLC fork, Spinergy Xyclone Enduro Wheels, and an Easton Vice AM Stem. Bike rides amazing and feels good in the mud (we finally have a little mud around D.C.) Also added the orange Acid pedals, giving clipless a try for AM use, I use eggbeaters on my XC bikes, this is my first AM bike. Any suggestions or opinions are greatly appreciated. Please note the seatpost is in "getting to the trail" mode. One thing I am considering is a Speedball R or Gravity dropper seatpost.

    600/700 To Spend On Hardtail

    I need to buy a Hardtail as a present for Christmas but only have 600-700 to spend.
    I think my best options are a Cannondale F4 or a Specialised Rockhopper Pro
    The person who is getting this wants a light bike so I presume the Cannondale is lightest but is it as good a bike as the Specialised.
    Should I be looking at any other bikes?
