    Yet another raw 575 :D

    Here's my 575 on a "stable state", there is no such thing as final state so here is my current version. I am currently waiting for a derailleur hanger bolt (that backed out on the first ride and got lost). I will probably cut the extra steerer once I decide on the final stem height.

    * Frame Size & Color: Medium Yeti 575 Raw
    * Fork: Rock Shox Pike 454 Air U-turn
    * Brakes: Shimano Deore XT 180mm front / 160mm rear
    * Cranks: Shimano Deore XT
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT (with Rollamajig)
    * Pedals: Shimano 540
    * Stem: FSA XC-140 120mm (for now)
    * Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite XC
    * Seatpost: Thomson
    * Saddle: Selle Italia X0
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano Deore XT integrated BB
    * Cassette: Shimano Deore XT
    * Headset: Chris King Nothreadset
    * Grips: ODI LockOn
    * Front Tire: Intense CC 2.25 (probably switch to Nobby Nic 2.4 soon)
    * Front Rim: DT Swiss 5.1D
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro 2 / Maxle
    * Rear Tire: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.4
    * Rear Rim: DT Swiss 5.1D
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro 2 / Hope QR
    * Weight No idea

    Check the pics below.

    Cheers,
    Cris

    Hi guys;

    I've check around all the pics and specs and I very interesting to know some SC Nomad with AM 05 SL . To be honesty I can not indentify if this fork is 110-130 or 130-150, once if you measure this, you will find another mesure.

    My currently bike is a NRS with the AM 05 SL, with hayes/salsa/and SID Air Shock, that's mean that this bike is completely out of shape/geometry....for AM frame.

    Can I have the same performace with this frame with this fork???I've to move for another one??

    Some guess??????

    ... and if we just ... gilded piggy

    here's my '02 switchblade set up at 5 X 5.5. fox float r front, fox float r propedal rear, nice and simple. rohloff rear, which i love, avid juicys, hopey dampner, ergo grips.

    as i'm getting older (42) i've decided to sacrifice some weight for comfort.

    i.ve managed, through careful product selection, to raise the bike's weight from 25#s to 31.5#s and i threw 20lbs on myself to make sure i had the complete AM experience

    climbs great, descend great and doesn't break. i couldn't ask for much more, except for a better engine.

    Is that a single speed fully? If so, I must admit it's the first SB fully i've seen.

    Hey MC Storm, If you got a flat Handle bar, you wouldnt have to have the flipped stem. it looks like you are flipping it to offset that riser handle bar.

    Pedal upgrade

    Ha ha! Yeah, you're right about the pedals.

    I've been deliberating whether to get Time Atacs XS, Speedplay Frogs, or Egg Beaters.

    Still havn't decided.

    So, I've just been riding (or you might say floating) around on these toe-clips for now.

    Still can't believe after saving up for soooo long, I've finally been able to get this bike! It's soooooo fun to ride!!!!

    I have not first hand eperience with the speedplays but I like ATACs and eggbeaters a hell of a lot more than SPD which was a quantum leap forward from toe clips. Yes, I used them for years and even did some races on them. For what it's worth, the Times and Crank bros feel almost identical and the only real difference between the two is that the Time seem a little faster to engage when pushing forward because the Eggbeaters have to roll forward requiring that you take some pressure off the shoe. It's not much and certainly not a big deal.

    Ummm..Newbie here, been lurking around this forum for a week or so (Sooo much info and good reading!) and finally stopped long enough to post. Alright, I"m gonna come right on out and say it, I know I'll probably get flogged for it knowing what the general opinoin is here, but I kinda love the looks of the San Andreas... ... and have for many years. I finally got myself one. I've been XC'ing since '96. A Raleigh Hardtail got me hooked into the sport and I quickly upgraded to a '97 Proflex 857. I loved that ride. It was perfect for the kind of riding I was doing. I started riding with a different group of guys, these guys a bit more hardcore than my xc buddies. Needless to say the Proflex lasted a month and a half. Looking around for a new bike, I was amazed at the affordability of the San Andreas. I remember how much it cost to build one of these rigs up back in the mid '90's. So i got my bike from..you guessed it...Adrenaline Bike. I got the DHS with the Hone build kit, and I'm loving it!

    Sweet! bike. I think the enduros are very tough AM bikes. More on the side of DH. That shock is amazing that it can fit. What size is it and did what hardware did you use to fit it?

    shock is an 8.75 x 2.75.
    the only hardware needed is a 15mm to 8mm x 22mm reducer to mount the shock to the shuttle. you will also need to remove the DU bush from the opposite eyelet.

    it's the coil, and I'm really impressed with mine as well. I figured the coil would involve less screwing around (pumping mainly), but I've been pleasantly suprised with the amount of adjustability the dhx air rear shock has without having to mess with the pressure.

    My X6

    Recently finished Ventana X-6. I also have a Romic shock that'll yield 5.32" travel with the 6" rockers that are on it if I decide the 6" travel is too much. There's 130-150mm AM1 internals hiding inside those Z1FR lowers, so I can set it up for 5 or 6".
    Now if I can only sneak it out between the kids' soccer/hockey.

    Cheers,

    Mike E.

    man that things looks high. i dont know if I even like 6" of travel anymore. I love it when i need it. But I always hated it when climbing & fast cornering.

    Im down to a 4" and love it. I feel so much more stable, nimble, and balanced.

    Ha! You beat me to it Axxon. I was going to post a pic of the 45 lb Huffy I left behind in my parent's basment. Your cruiser is way better. I love the seat.... not exactly svelte, is it

    I only saw a few cannondale lefties. I've got to represent. Its an '05 Prophet 1000. I just got it from the shop I work at. Its been there for a while and I got it for a steal. So its new, just two years old. Enjoy. BTW, its muddy but the distance and brown color hides it well.

    Thanks man. I just got into mountain biking. The guys at the shop have been bugging me for a while now. So I gave it a shot a month or so ago and I LOVED it. I felt like a little kid doing jumps in my driveway. So I had to get one. The boss and I worked out a deal. I'm very happy about the whole thing. I absolutely LOVE the bike. It rides smooth and handles great. I've crashed quite a few times in a short amount of time and it hasnt complained once. Not even a scratch. I kind of wonder if the color is powdercoated on and not paint. Its the matte brown color. I couldn't find any info anywhere about it.

    '05 Rocky Mountain Switch SL - EMS special

    I got a RM Switch SL for Father's Day (thanks Mom!), I've been riding it for the last 3 or 4 months every chance I get. I wasn't really looking for a new bike, but I got such a deal on it, I couldn't pass it up. I came off a Titus RX100, this bike has made an amazing difference in my riding. I love it. EMS changed up the bike a bit from the standard configuration. Its heavy, but I seem to still be able to ride it just like my lighter bikes.

    Frame Easton 7005 FS RAD SL Taperwall Aluminum
    Frame Weight 3.59 kg / 7.9 lb (18.0?)
    Fork Marz Z1FR1
    Front Travel 6"
    Rear Shock Fox DHX4.0
    Rear Travel 6"
    Brakes Hayes HFX9 - carbon
    Shifters SRAM 7.0 TrIggers
    Hubs (RR/FR) DT Champion
    Tires (RR/FR) Kenda Nevegal/Maxxis Minion 2.5
    Saddle Coda Cheapie
    Weight - 35lbs or so

    Well I guess I might as well add my bike to this thread, it is my All-mountain bike, my Downhill bike, my Super D bike, my North Shore bike and my XC race bike:




    Quick parts spec:
    -06 Banshee Chaparral
    -Boxxer WC
    -721 rims, Hope hubs
    -Mono 6s
    -Hone Crankset
    -e.13DRS
    -Sram shifting.
    -43.8 pounds

    I love it. It can go literally anywhere, and it is also at home with a 5" fork, great bike.
    Only thing holding it back is weight, high gearing, and a bit tall up front for super steep/tech climbs; I would like to get something like a Pyre for some serious epics/all-day-rides but all in good time.

    N.B: After seeing so many bikes with co-ordinated anodizing I am starting to wish I had some extra bling like that, I doubt I could have waited though, I just had to get the bike asap and I had it up at the top of a trail on the shore within an hour of picking it up! There was no time to lose...
