    Yay, I found out how to use photobucket finally.Ok so this is my Haro Shift R5 and the stats are in my earlier post on page 2. Also, I was just thinking, shouldn't this topic be a sticky? Just a thought.

    Bullit

    Here's my version! It's a bit more freeride oriented, but it's all I got.


    I've gone to a double front ring, and hydraulic discs.

    Not sure if this qualifies as AM (weird category) or freeride but i'll let you decide. Pics are a couple of months ago now and it has different pedals and an 8in rotor in front. She's on the heavy side to pick up but at the same time nimble and flicky on singletrack and in the air.

    Here's my Leader 626 S

    All Mountain? Aggressive XC? Is there a difference? I thought it fit, so here it is:

    Frame Size & Color: 17 inch-black, 5" travel (will take up to 150mm fork)
    * Fork: '03 Marzocchi Z-1 Freeride
    * Rear Shock: Pushed Vanilla R, (tuned for aggressive riding)
    * Brakes: 7" Avid BB7 w/Speed Dial 7 levers
    * Cranks: Holzfeller triples
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM X.7 w/ X.7 shifters
    * Pedals: Time ATAC Alium
    * Stem: Truvativ Hussefelt
    * Handlebar: Truvativ Hussefelt
    * Seatpost: Titec Hellbent
    * Saddle: Selle Italia/Marzocchi Karve
    * Bottom Bracket: Truvativ Team DH
    * Cassette: SRAM 970
    * Headset: FSA Pig DH Pro
    * Grips: Salsa (Fuego??)
    * Front Tire: Panaracer Cinder 2.25
    * Front Rim: Sun Rhynolite 36 hole
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Shimano XT
    * Rear Tire:Panaracer Cinder 2.25
    * Rear Rim:Sun Rhynolite 36 hole
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Shimano XT
    * Weight 32 lbs

    Definitely a working man's bike. No real bling, but tough as nails, and handles extremely well. When I retire the Marathon, I'll put something more in the AM classification on, but it's been a superb fork so far. I can't say enough about this bike.

    Edit 5/6/06-new pic and changed fork model to reflect changes made this weekend.

    Hey,
    I see that seat post sticking way up and was wondering how tall you are?

    I am 6'3" with a 34" inseam standing barefoot and also ride a Large framed heckler with a 90 x 5 stem. I also use a LOT of spacers under my stem to further raise up the front a bit. I've always felt the Large was not quite large enough, but the XL Heckler was way too long.

    Just wondering on your perceptions...

    Thanks

    I hate fenders too

    They are ugly. Dirt motorcycles are pretty ugly too. But it's muddy riding 1/3 of the year in Nor Cal. We've built a fun 11 mile singletack trail that is designed and we maintain for wet riding. I'm very fortunate to be able to ride year round. And 11 muddy miles feels worse than 25 dry miles. Mud sucks it's no fun, but better than sitting around all winter and driving long distance to ski and spend a lot of money.

    Without the long front fender water and mud sprays in my eyes. The f-ugly downtube keeps the chain 80% mud free (no more chain suck ruining wet rides). Since this picture I added a top chain guard to keep the drivetrain 100% clean from mud. The rear disk guards keeps the rear brake working, without a rear disc guard mud packs in the rotor holes and I totally loose rear brake (wave rotors without any holes would cure that problem). Before the brake guard I've worn out near new rear pads to metal in 1 or less than 2 rides. (I use more rear brake in mud conditions around switchbacks and in rocks than dry when I normally use almost all front brake, dragging rear more for handling). The rear is just for quick clean up after ride. Even on the worst wet rides there's never more than a few tiny spots of mud above my knees now. And I use neoprene booties and leggings for warmth and quick spray off while spraying off the bike afterwards, my regular cycle shoes underneath stay clean and dry. Looks aren't everything especially when few others are out riding in the mud.

    I'm taking the fenders off this weekend (finally!). They go on pretty quickly if needed. But the mud season should be over now. I'll have to post some pix of the "naked" bike.

    My new (to me) All mountain bike. Since these photo's were taken (last week), the bottle cage has been removed, DMR V8 pedals have been installed (egg beaters for longer rides) and a few other very minor changes.

    I got the whole bike for an awesome price - which is the reason why some of the parts don't match up (headset, front and rear wheels, shifters, tires (soon to be changed)...

    Spec -
    -Xtension Xplore frame (same as Azonic Saber) with a swinger 4 way Air.
    -2005 Nixon Platnium fork
    -Dirtbag FR rear rim, with WTB dual duty front rim.
    -A2Z rear hub - Deore front.
    -LX/Deore drivetrain.
    -Deore Hydro brakes
    -SIC race bars, Easton EA50 stem (90mm?), Azonic seatpost with a SDG seat.
    -Truvative ISIS Firex cranks (cheap...), currently with a 3 ring setup. May go bash guard. (have both).

    Future changes - there are lots of changes i'd love to do, but i'm into XC racing, so most of my money goes into XC and road bikes (ye.. sorry..), but i will be putting a X9 RD and shifters on soon. New wider tires (kenda or scwalbe..) and ideally i'd get a new crankset. But for now it's great, and i'll just wait for parts to break/wear out..

    Nice setup. A passing question - I notice you have your very low, and I see that on many setups called "all mountain". You can't be that short, so does that mean that on your "all mountain" rides, you spend the whole time out of the saddle? Guess it goes to what people consider "all mountain".

    How many bikes does this boy need!! Nice rig.

    swoodbrn – I’m pretty sure Dave is just short! I assume that his seat height would be fine for AM riding how it is. I'm sure he'll fill you in on the details.


    Cheers, Dave.

    Just wondering on your perceptions...

    Thanks
    I'm about 6'3" as well, but slightly longer in the leg. The large seems to suit me fine with the 70x0 Stem. I've never tried the XL, but it seems to be a huge leap size wise, especially the top tube.

    NO offence, and not that it really matters as I like bike porn of all types. But when your components have the words "lite" and "race Xlite" written all over them I think your stretching it more than a bit to fit the bike in the AM catagory

    Whatch ya got there is a trail bike... looks like a nice one at that, and I'm sure you may ride it all over the mountain. But that in itself doesn't actually make it an all mountain bike technically speaking.

    No, your 100% right, i took that picture when i got the bike home, since the pics the seat is decently higher, same hieght as my XC race rigs.

    Edit: Due to it having flat pedals - the seat is a little lower as i'm not really doing any 'All mountain' type riding with it with flat pedals. When i put the egg beaters on, i'll measure it up and get it set-up to the right height.

    my bike

    This is my baby.

    '05 Enduro 130. Mostly stock parts.

    Upgrades:

    7" rotor for the back
    odi lock on grips
    hope seat clamp
    modified the stock Deore shifters to run outside the brake levers.
    new set of Performance Loco wheels (which I love)
    Various tire combos

    I believe it weighs 31-32 lbs at this point. Deffinately could be lighter, but I like how it is.

    Thanks, glad you like it. The tensioner is a Rohloff one, it works really well.

    Just fitted some Jones H Bars to it, which are perfect for AM.



    The frame is actually going back over to Canada this week to get the sliding dropouts and the cable routing taken off, as I use this as a SS all the time.

    I'll miss it whilst its away, but I think I've got my Tracer dialled now so I'll be using that again.

    When the Implant comes back I'm going to run it with 100mm White Brother Magic 100 IMV forks, I think it will shine with this setup. I'm also putting bigger discs on it, I'm waiting for some Jones XTR/Boone Cranks and I'm going to order some I9 SS wheels for it, then its finished!

    No the waits more like 2 months for the cranks, although I have my fingers crossed that they'll be here sooner, as my Truvativs are shot!

    Probably less travel than most @4.5" but there isn't anywhere this badboy can't go, too much fun. And the DW link makes it a great climber too. Amazingly versitile. Good times every time I put a leg over.

    I'll miss it whilst its away, but I think I've got my Tracer dialled now so I'll be using that again.

    When the Implant comes back I'm going to run it with 100mm White Brother Magic 100 IMV forks, I think it will shine with this setup. I'm also putting bigger discs on it, I'm waiting for some Jones XTR/Boone Cranks and I'm going to order some I9 SS wheels for it, then its finished!

    While I am sure you could AM with any set up if your really want to. I just can't bring myself to think of H-bars as "perfect" for all mountain. Perfect for cruisin, perfect for a bike that gets lots of road miles as well as dirt, perfect for your wrists probably? But IMO there more suited for road, or cross than pure dirt. Let alone AM. What's next moustache bars on your Tracer??

    Now I have to admit I have only sat on a bike with these bars. But they feel akin to mounting "clip-ons" from a sportbike and sticking them on a dirtbike to me...?

    Cool bike though!!!

    If you go on the Jonesbikes website, you can see a nice clip of I believe Jeff Jones riding some pretty hardcore trail obstacles w/those H-bars, so I'd say they are deffinately an AM option if they suit you. Supposedly they are good for distributing wrist impact of drops too.

    I think you need to ride on a set (on the right bike) or at the very least take a look at those pics/vid on the Jones website before you can make an educated opinion on them.

    They aren't going to be perfect for everyone, but I love them, and so do a lot of people. I don't do many road miles or any cruising either. I personally wouldn't put them on a geared/full suspension bike, they seem to suit SS, or HTs setup in a similar way to my Dekerf, so the risers will be staying on the Tracer...

    Oh yeah you are absolutely right, they allow the best weight distribution for any type of riding, and feel great for jumps and drops, allowing the front end to be lifted more easily and ultra comfort on the landings...

    You are definitely right there when you say that "if they suit you" because they wont suit everyone, but an open mind gets you half way there!

    Interesting set-up. My buddy has that same frame - It's impressive how burly the HP seems and how little it bobs when he stands to climb. How's does your HP climb with that fork? Why the skinnier tire on the front?

    Yep, I'm a stander and masher (SS habit) and the DW-link does me right with very little bob. The shock I have has no platform valving and little low speed compression too! In the Iron Horse forums, there is another rider racing the same frame and he used an 80mm SPV fork. Quite an all arounder. But that is why I went to the bigger fork - to slacken the HTA, and it has worked like a champ. I have the TPC Nixon and with compression set to full is like SPV set a little above minimum (1" bob) - but I get to turn down the compression for the downs The tall fork is a bit wandery on climbs.

    The 2.0 Specialized tire is more like a 2.3, while the Trailbear 2.25 is more like a 2.1. Go figure. I really like both tires. I am trying some lower rolling resistance tires right now (Continental gravity/Diesel), but I think the Trailbear is the better tire in back, no experience for the front yet.

    Have you bud check this posting of HollowPoint pics, and stop by the Iron horse forum to say hello, there are good peeps there (DW, The Man, posts too) :

    How did you add up to 26 with Open Pro rims and no gears? Seems like it would be lighter.

    AM is in the skill, nice ride.

    Nice San Andreas

    I love my San Andreas. I am working to get it built back up. I've tried all the new fancy frames, owned quite a few, and you can't beat the simplicity, naturally stable platform design, and the versitility and lightness of the San Andreas. Plus, it's so ugly, it gets tons of looks out on the trail. All those other frames are a dime a dozen.

    I just got a used swingarm to get this built up again. I just may get an annodized one like your if one ever comes up for sale on the bay.

    Boat anchor parts. The rear hub weighs 650gr, and the seatpost weighs a pound even. The front hub is pretty porky, as well. I could drop a pound and a quarter with Chris King hubs, but I haven't spent the money yet. Of course, I have a set of lights that weighs 2 pounds and I can't tell the difference with or without.

    haha...when i was looking for a frame i was trying to decide between the marin wolf ridge and san andreas. i was pretty sold on all the features that the san andreas had, but i just couldn't get over how ugly it looked...kinda looks like a horse haha. though i bet it rides great

    ...I rocked the San Andreas for a couple years. It was a fun bike & could be built realtively lightweight. For it's time, it was light years ahead of the industry....however, I just could never get around the pedal feedback on it, especially in technical climbing situations, that baby can buck!

    My "AM" Nomad, AKA "The Pleasure Craft"

    After years of being a hardtail riding weight weenie I took the blue pill and went to the bouncy side. I love this thing.

    All mountain? Sure, whatever that means. All the new skool catagories confuse me.

    Its a mountain bike and I ride it all over the mountain so I guess that counts!

    A little bit o' Cake

    Ok, this one is definitely on the light end of the AM spectrum... but I've got too many hills to deal with locally not to have a good climber. I went with a jack of all trades (5" travel heavy XC / light AM) that could do respectably in an all mountain / trail role but still cut and run / climb like the blazes when required. It is still too new to have a lot of upgrades (I'll wear things out then replace, but some of my thoughts are included):

    * Frame Size & Color: 06 Cake 2DLX, 19" frame, blue
    * Fork: Float Fox 130R
    * Shock: Manitou Swinger 3-way
    * Brakes: Hayes HFX 9, 6" rotors (likely going to 8" front)
    * Cranks: Bontrager stamped Truvativ Fire X
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano LX
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    * Pedals: Shimano M520
    * Stem: Bontrager Race OS
    * Handlebar: Bontrager Select OS
    * Seatpost: Bontrager Select (will likely go to Thompson in future)
    * Saddle:Bontrager Select (likely WTB in not so distant future)
    * Bottom Bracket: Truvative GXP External
    * Cassette: SRAM PG970
    * Headset: Aheadset / Crane Creek
    * Grips: Bontrager Lock-on (I don't care much as long as my gloves stick to 'em)
    * Front Tire: Bontrager ACX (likely going Panaracers for local conditions)
    * Front Rim: Bontrager (will change, thinking Mavics)
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Bontrager (will change, thinking Hope)
    * Rear Tire: Bontrager ACX (likely going Panaracers for local conditions)
    * Rear Rim: Bontrager (will change, thinking Mavics)
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Bontrager (will , thinking Hope)
    * Weight: 33lbs as shown, just under 31lbs without the night riding light + battery

    The Spring on the 5th Element is titanium (smooth) -.4 lb.
    I am changing to Specialized Pro 2.3 tires soon which will add about
    .4 lbs to the bike but should yeild a greater contact patch and
    increased cornering traction with the Stan's Tubless kit.

    My AM rig..

    I won't bore you with the specs; kinda in the middle of up grading parts, but have changed stem, shocky spring and wanting to upgrade hubs, forks and maybe brakes and discs. Oh, and new s-type rims on the way.

    cheers,

    I'll Play

    You guys have a serious lack of Big Wheeled rigs here so I’ll throw mine up.

    Ventana “El Capitan” (29er for those of you that arnt familiar)
    Maverick DUC converted to 29er use
    Industry Nine wheels built with Salsa 29 mm disc rims
    XT/XTR drivetrain
    Syntace 16 deg 27” bars
    Avid BB7 160/180
    King Thomson etc…
    She rolls about 29lbs and can take just about anything the southern Appalachians can throw at her. From long days in Pisgah to 100 mile races this thing gets me all over a bunch of mountains.
