    I have never really taken pics of my brother's recently built OG Transition Bandit V1 that I pieced together for him this winter. Some parts I transferred over from his first mountain bike that he started on 3 years ago, but most of the stuff has been upgraded. But still OG by today's standards. He's quite stoked and says it's night and day difference from the previous ride.

    - Transition Bandit 26 V1 Size Large 19.5"
    - Fox Shox RP23 BV 130mm travel
    - 2009 Rockshox Lyrik Solo Air 160mm
    - FSA Gravity DX Pro headset
    - Atomlab Pimplite wheelset (failed miserably to convert to ghetto tubeless)
    - 2.4 Maxxis Ardents, rocking tubes
    - Shimano SLX M665 brakes 203/180mm rotors
    - Shimano SLX M660 cranks
    - Shimano XT M770 Bottom Bracket
    - E.13 Guidering 32T
    - Shimano Saint M810 SS derailleur, 9 speed
    - Shimano XT M770 11-34 cassette
    - Shimano SLX M660 Rapidfire shifter
    - Shimano XT Chain
    - MRP Lopes SL chainguide
    - Chromag Fubars OSX, 780mm wide, 25mm rise
    - ODI Rogue lock-on grips
    - Thomson X4 50mm stem
    - 2012 Rockshox Reverb 420x125mm post
    - WTB Deva SLT saddle
    - Shimano XT M785 SPD pedals (first year clipless)
    - DKG Flip-lock QR clamp

    Nice Mach 6 and Nomad. I like the stealth black on both. It's much better looking than the turquoise and pink nomad color. But why did you route your cables on the outside, (on the Nomad)? It has internal cable routing on the frame doesn't it?

    I don't know if it qualifies as AM or not but here's my month old Giant Trance SX. I don't have any pictures yet with the Zee brakes installed, I'll have to take some this evening and post them. Bold are the non stock parts.


    * Frame Size & Color: '14 Trance SX alloy Large Bronze?
    * Fork: Stock Fox Float CTD EVO
    * Brakes: Shimano ZEE 203mm IceTech front and rear
    * Cranks: Stock Shimano ZEE RF 32t NW ring, stock MRP bash guard
    * Front Derailleur: NA
    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM X01
    * Pedals: Race Face whatever
    * Stem: Stock
    * Handlebar: Stock
    * Seatpost: Stock Contact Switch R dropper
    * Saddle: WTB Laser taken from my hardtail, bought 6yrs ago
    * Bottom Bracket: Stock
    * Cassette: SRAM X01 10-42t
    * Headset: Stock OD2
    * Grips: Stock
    * Front Tire: Stock Hans Dampf
    * Front Rim: Stock TRX-1
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Stock TRX-1
    * Rear Tire: Stock Rock Razor
    * Rear Rim: Stock TRX-1
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Stock TRX-1
    * Weight: 29lbs

    I somehow ended up with an XX1 shifter by accident instead of the X01. I need to get more miles on her but if I change anything else out, it's probably going to be the shock. It needs more compression damping regardless of air pressure for my 240lbs. The front tire likes to push in corners, but I need more time as it might be me and not the tire at fault. I actually like the fork surprisngly after all of the negative reviews I've heard on it. The wheels are surprisingly light. If they hold up to my weight, I'm not going to touch them and risk paying a bunch of money for a lighter setup that might not hold up. So far it's been a blast but I haven't gotten as much time on it as I wanted. It seems like right when I bought it, I started working a lot more and temps went well into the triple digits shortly thereafter. Pics to come.

    I'd say it qualifies! I'm considering ditching my Reign for the new trance SX. I think the Pike/Monarch Old combo would be rockin'.

    My Trance SX at 29.5 lbs. Still rocking the 1x10. Favorite components: Fork (its amazing), brakes (also amazing) and Wheels (they are actually DT Swiss 1750 I believe). A little hard to get up the hills, but other than that, (and the rear shock which is only OK), its a great bike.

    Let's see those AM setups

    I finally have a bike I think belongs in this thread. This thing is a beast and way too fast for me

    '13 Rocky Mountain altitude 750msl carbon 150mm and 650B XL frame... 30lbs

    Adjustable geometry: 66.6-68.3 HTA, 73.6-74.3 STA, BB drop from 10.3 to -9.8

    SRAM x7/9 components
    Elixir 50 xm brakes, 180mm
    Fox CTD shock/34 fox CTD fork
    Reverb dropper

    I put my 777mm bars, oury grips and wtb vigo seat on it.

    First main upgrade will most likely be a tubeless compatible wheel set. Not crazy about the SRAM/elixir stuff... But I got the bike for 1200 off so I'll run it for as long as I can stand it lol



    That's my light battery on the seat post, I was planning to be late for dinner


    And some of what she'll be seeing
    I hope you have a big trunk... cause I'm gonna put my bike in it!

    I think giant would sell more of the sx if they chose a different color. I damn near bought one, but the color and fork really turned me off.
