    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 Im 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.
