    rawr that's one sexy bike you must love looking at it as you push it uphill.

    Some folks actually enjoy the climbing part and 22x34 lets them do that.
    I like cheap stuff that works great and is very sturdy.

    Naw I actually found myself climbing more in my 36t when I was running a 24x36 and I felt like a pansie spinning like crazy.

    I have no trouble climbing on mine (and we do some fairly serious climbs) - 32 front and 11-34 rear. Actually has made me a much stronger rider over the last year, plus I found I was hardly ever using the small ring, anyway. Works for me anyway - individual results may vary.

    you should ...its outstanding. I also am biased towards Chromag as they are such great guys I can tell just based on a few short e-discussions I have had with them.

    What's up with all the taco bashgaurds on AM bikes? Replacing a crank arm is a lot cheaper than a new frame when you bust your ISCG mounts/ strip them.

    Setup: Modded e*thirteen 32t special (now STP), XTR crankset, MRP carbon bash, e*thirteen chainring.

    Rest: 2010 Reign X frame
    2010 36 Float RC2 fork
    DHX 5 shock
    G Dropper
    SLR flow carbon saddle
    Crossmax wheels
    XT cass, X9 SL chain
    Conti RQ 2.2 black chilli tires
    Saint brakes
    Straitline pedals (not for long!)
    XTR shifter & derailleur
    Point1 LTD stem
    Raceface SIXC AM bars

    Right now I have an 11-32 cassette but can't quite get myself up some climbs, but I plan on either going 11-34 9sp or if the time for a change is the same time as Shimano's 10sp release then it'll be 11-36 XTR!

    Good thing I push up steep climbs, eh? 29.32 lbs as pictured. lighter with my current mud spikes.

    ISCG strength shouldn't be an issue on most current bikes. The bash guards are great and the chain guides are nice too for more agressive stuff. I like the MRP XC Bash.

    Yeah but why something like the LG1+ over the SRS+? For the riding I'd do, I'd much rather prefer the crank mounted bashguard over the taco. For downhill I can understand the taco, but for AM? I just don't get it.

    And weight and if you clip the guard it is more towards the center of the bike so it doesn't disruput your line as much and throw your pedals either.

    Yes, I work for Yeti. I always sell off my bikes at the end of the season, Its the only way I can afford to get new ones. as for what I will get next, I don't know maybe a 7 or a alloy 5.

    Heres mine, they make you a stronger climber. I have a 34 tooth stainless steel ring. I think it will last a little longer than my previous FSA ring.

    man, this is a great thread. Honestly, such configurations are rad and good to see others customizing their builds accordingly.

    Here is a pic of my 1x9-"ish" setup though technically a 12 speed, 2 x 6 gearing setup and I freaking LOVE it. The high gear on the front when engaged is actually equivalent to a 35.2t chainring and if i run the 24t physical ring its equivalant to a 38.4t chainring. For me, I do not miss at all the smaller cogs that I had to remove on the rear - rear is a 17t-34t cassette but I love the dishless wheel tjhat gets built with a singlespeed hub so overall it made killer sense for me.

    My next bike, in progress will run a 1x6 (SS hub out bike in a similar fashion).

    thanks, but i must admit I "borrowed" the spoke color idea from mtbr user Mikesee as i thought i looked cool

    Since you asked there are complete bike pics available if you click here. Its a 29er AM hardtail I dreamed up with the help of others.

    old setup

    new setup (BB mount)

    Why?
    1) Jump-stop worked well but not perfect for the most agressive situations. It's a great great product though!!!
    2) I wanted to try how a taco (more centered, not moving but sliding) feels compared to a bash.
    3) it's lighter than adding a Stinger to the old setup, a lot more expensive though...

    When the time comes next I want to try a Gamut.
