    Bought this bike new when I first started riding. I've upgraded most everything as things have either worn out or broken. Not the best, but it gets the job done. I'm hopefully going to upgrade to a F/S by the end pof the year so probably won't spend a lot on this one unless something has to be relaced to keep 'er running.

    I think your saddle is a GDS... your way of sitting in the bike is wrong, trust me.

    take it easy, I'm only joking... I think that your bike has the perfect setup to do it all and don't worry about her except, you know, saddle position ;).

    Peyto Cycles Wild Bill frame, 05 RS Pike Team, Hope/King wheels, Race Face/SRAM/Shimano mixed drive bits, Avid Juicy-5 brakes. Thomson stem/ProTaper bar/Gravity Dropper Descender post. (makes the bike even better!) Tires vary.

    I love this bike. It does it all. Got the frame for about half his regular price; not custom to me but, it was exactly what I wanted when shopping, and still is. At least for a hardtail. ;)

    Hey scrublover, do you have a salsa skewer on your Pike? If you do, how does it work? Or is it a Pike w/different lowers?

    Here's my 456, an older pic, now its got a front derailleur, longer cranks, shorter stem, different bars. I'll post a new pic soon.

    /me is totally jealous of all these pikes.
    school, work, or riding... pick two
    :P
    (based on how poor I am (very) guess which two :) )

    Nice bikes, Id be posting a pic of mine, but ran into some 'technical difficulties' in altering her from stock form.
    stupid brakes! lol, at least I got the saddle swap done!

    Yep. If you pull your Maxle apart, it'll be easy to see what I did; easier than me trying to describe it. The only extra bit I did was to machine (well, Dremel) part of the Salsa cam bit to replicate the shape of the cam bit on the Maxle. Been working great for nearly two years now, with no issues whatsoever. Salsa works, and I've got a Hope on my Lyrik, though that required a bit more work. The bits for the newer generation Maxles I think are not as friendly to being modded.

    Disclaimer: obviously RS would say to not do this/void your warrantee/blahblah. Do at your own risk, tighten everything up if you do it. And use Loctite on the skewer/lever bits that you replace, even though the female threaded portion has a lock/set screw.

    So I was scrolling down, and I saw the picture. I was like HEY! It's another Addict! Hmmm... Looks a lot like my bike... And then I realized it was my bike. Haha.
