    Thank you!

    Actually what I originally planned was to present my bike on the HT thread but after a dozen of attempts to open the topic I finally give up.

    I think this must be some sort of "forum rules for newbies" that you can only see the main stuff but not specific threads. Right here right now I'm having all kind of difficulties to see the pics here...

    I apologize; I did not mean to sound as if HT pics were not welcome here. He said he was concerned about posting it here with all the FS pics, so I figured he may be more comfortable posting it in the hardtail thread.

    Helmetless, I didn't know you had trouble opening the HT thread. Try viewing the forums in linear mode (top right corner where it says display mode).

    Finally gonna get my new On One Summer Season on here. Slight changes since the picture was taken, I replaced the On One 80mm stem with a Truative AKA 60mm stem and replaces the syntace flat bar with a race face 1.5" riser bar. Rides much better. This was my first build after buying a frame. Made some mistakes, but scored some good deals on flea bay. Check it out:

    That's vampyric ride! See that unhealthy pallor on the saddle, and those vessels carrying dark blood across the chariot!

    Clearly it came from lands devoid of all sunlight. It's predatory, blood thirsty creature of the night!

    The new build with new wheelset, fork and drivetrain. Weighs 27 lbs. Now I wonder if I'll ever need the HD, this bike has become a true AM delight as it is now. Better pics soon.

    they are 2.5's and they do well except in really slick clay. If I really want to push it I switch out to some 2.5 Maxxis Mobsters that I have laying around but the weight of those makes climbing a pain.

    Check into the Maxis High Roller rear and Minion front tires.

    Not totally XC but they are an awesome all around tire.

    I'm currently riding an '07 Glory FR-1 Comp(stock as)
    yeah sure it's more on the free ride side of mtbiking but I've been using it as an AM mtb
    & it does it with ease, put it into 1st gear on the small chain ring up front & it climbs extremely well for a bike of it's weight & class.
    @ least it keeps you fit riding it up hill then it's awesome to bomb back down.








    Frame: '07 Glory FR-1 Comp 16.5"
    wheels: 26" Alex Supra disc BH F&R
    tyres: rear Kenda nevegal stick E 2.5 front Kenda blue groove stick E 2.5
    brakes:Avid juicy threes
    handle bars: evolve race face DH riser
    head stem: the pig one point five
    cranks: evolve race face DH
    derailures: SRAM X.7
    seat & stem: WTB dbl black diamond/evolve race face DH stem
    shox: rockshox domain 318 U turn/ fox DHX 3.0
    axles: ringles F&R

    jojotherider- It's a Sinister GRUITR, they're actually welded by Devinci for Sinister, or so I have heard.
    Finally got the new seatpost in:

    oh, yeah, now i can see the differences. they are almost the same exact bike. I'll post a better pic of mine for comparison later.

    edit: quick question for you. What's the difference in the two different mounting points on the swing arm? you've got yours on the top, i have mine on the bottom (came that way). which one gives more rear travel?

    If I remember correctly the top hole is the shorter travel setting with a lower leverage ratio.
    there are also two different shock options for the Gruitr.
    7.875x2.0 (what I am running) will net you 4.5 or 5.5 inches of travel
    7.875x2.25 will get you 5.5 or 6.5 in of travel.

    The chillipepper does look really similar, just some minor differences in the gussets, cable routing and swingarm. Couldn't find any geometry info on it though.

    ... and if we just ...

    I think I posted this bike a year ago. Since then I decided to completely rebuild it from the ground up. I love the way it rides.

    It would be fine with me if you posted every couple of weeks too. The big S should learn from this machine.
