    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.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Glad you think it's a cool bike BUT...

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!!!

    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!

    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,

    Mik

    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.
