    Sold for $10.60! She's light too at 129g (lighter than 2008 XTR!).

    She's going on my Ti frame hahahahah.

    Are you asking about the one on my single speed? It's a SASO off eBay, logos are under the clear coat I'm afraid.

    Hope Mono Mini.

    Ti bolt kit on the way.


    Wellgo MG-1 with Ti spindles. Might make their way to the Reign and I'll perhaps give Egg Beaters a go... maybe.

    Man, do you have parcel arrive every day? Love the Mini's, but the reviews on them are a bit mixed. I'll be interested to hear how they go.

    I used to only use clip ins on road bikes. On my MTB's in the 90's I always had toe clips and straps. I used clip ins on the 1st day out with the Reign and liked the power but don't feel confident in them in slow technical stuff. I'm reallt torn about using them... or not. I don't think they will ever make their way back onto the Reign, but for the Ti project, sure. I'll give them a go.

    08 Cycle King Carbon Saddle (94g) $125AUD


    Work of art. I have a Selle SLR already for the Ti, this thing was an impulse buy. Interesting thing is that it's modelled exactly off an SLR (sneaky bastards). I find the SLR really comfy actually, so hope this thing is AOK (Lycra shorts with chammy padding - Justin says NO).

    Very BLING and fucntional...""OUCH""...for short bursts. Yeah SLR is a great saddle and I have one on my GRXO, would use nothing else. Well, unless there was something better, stronger, lighter AND more comfortable with some sexy bling factors slapped into it.

    I have a confession to make. Last week I had a go at a mate's $500 bike on a local trail. His seat was so damn comfy I thought I was in a lounge chair. It made my WTB Rocket V feel like pain in comparisson. Massive lesson learnt... bu tthen again I am not about to chuck a ladies seat on my bikes. LOL.

    I love the SLR on the La Bruja, and damn it I'll never wear lycra. I do use a chamois on my car sometimes admittedly I ride in jeans and pads for hours and hours with the XC lycra/spandex etc crew and just can't grip why one would wear it unless road racing, but that's just silly ol' me...

    Didn't know the Moots had Ventana swingarms on it! Must be stiff as f

    Build below weighs 31lb with dual ply Minion 2.5 DHF tyres on it:
    Ventana La Bruja 2008
    Rockshox Totem Solo Air 180mm 1.5 steerer
    Custom Fox DXR Air 5.0 for La Bruja
    All XTR- brakes, shifters etc with Race Face Rings (better sizing than XTR)

    Excuse the dodgy pics chaps...just some quick porn I took this weekend of the parts that had been sitting around far too long and finally I had time to wrench them on. I have to say that I had and have NO issue with the Hope set up and my Fox 36 as some people have had. Tolerances are VERY fine indeed so its pretty finiky to get right, mine took about 15 mins total so I was surprised at how easy they were to smack on the bike. Still some parts to put on though...

    I painted my singlespeed for a second time since the white was getting a bit scratched up. This time I stripped and sanded all the old paint off, and used two layers of undercoat so hopefully it will last a bit better. I tried something a little different this time as well...

    IMG_1094scaled.jpg

    IMG_1095scaled.jpg

    IMG_1096scaled.jpg

    I ride it a lot at night, and I thought it might look cool, $20 for one can of glow in the dark spray paint and I was definitely hoping it would be worth it.

    IMG_1117scaled.jpg

    IMG_1125scaleed.jpg

    It was hard to get a photo that really captured the glow (for me) but you get the idea. It looks awesome I think!

    Nice .... how long does the glow last?

    I guess it's proportional to the amount of time spent in light beforehand right?

    It lasts about 25mins. It's brighter in person, only takes a few seconds to charge up and the length depends on the thickness of paint. It says on the can that it will last for 4-5 hours if the whole can is spray over a half metre square area. and although a bike frame might not be much more than this, a lot of waste is inevitable if you want an even finish.

    That is awesome!!!!! I'd keep putting more coats on until you don't need to use lights.

    Nice bike and one that reflects the period. What is the weight and how does the fork react to general AM scenarios?

    thanks...yeah, to today's standards, she probably does look kooky I got it new, 98 model. Sold my old hardtail Fisher to fund the purchase, which also had a set of Girvin linkage forks. Noleen bought them out, and K2 bought out Pro-Flex. So that's the lineage of the K2 4000 in a nutshell. Weighs in at about 28-29 lbs., size medium. oddly enough, the heaviest part of the bike is the rear carbon fiber swingarm. The forks are heavy by today's standards too (about 3.5 lbs). They ride well though, super quick steering and eat up most everything. i rode a bit out west too (slick rock, sedona, flagstaff, bryce) and they do well in that environment. gotta say though, it's getting time to replace the frame and fork and hang that one in my garage. it's been 7 months since I finished the rebuild, and that's 7 months too long without a project.

    HI All,

    I'm thinking about selling this bike now, I've ridden it twice or three times which is just pathetic. I've been riding my hardtail to commute and thats it...anyone care to suggest the sort of cash I'd get for it?
    I have to admit, I love bikes and bike parts more than I love riding. It's a sickness and I am sorry
