    heres my beginner bike. been using it since 1994.

    I had a Trek Fuel the first year it came out. rode it thru various snowstorms until it got stolen the day i moved to California.

    so im back on this Trek 920 singletrack




    stock gear with the exception of a new trek seat (prolly 1999), and new chain (1998), new pedals, as i kept breaking the trek ones, so i got these Performance pedals with clips on one side, they rock!!! and take a hell of a beating.

    +1...reflectors are borderline but justifiable with night riding, but the kickstand really has no excuse Nice bike otherwise

    2008 Fuji Tahoe Comp 29er. Mostly stock, with just a few minor upgrades (e.g., switched out handlebar, stem, and seat clamp due to cheap quality Fuji components; rear cassette switched to a SRAM X9 that has 2 more teeth (34) in the granny; slightly better Avid mechanicals than stock ones; old school Ritchy clipless pedals; and new Terry saddle). I liked this bike from the get-go, but as I've become even more used to how it rides, I've come to appreciate it even more. It's now my main mtn bike and I think I'm pretty much sold on 29ers from now on.

    actually, this isn't my first bike, I'm just now getting back into it. I started with a cheap wal mart NEXT bike... yeah baby, full suspension, 40+ lbs :-) realized that wasn't the way to singletrack so I bought a new trek 4500 and it made all the difference in the world.... that was about 8 years ago.... getting back into it and found what I think was a good deal on this bike....

    Sweet! I was hoping to come across a thread where I could post pics of my entry level bike. I quit smoking after nearly 13+ years, and wanted to do something good for myself. I couldn't think of anything more fun than mountain biking! So, I shot over to my LBS and picked up my 2010 DB Response "Sport". So far, I orderd the Tora 318 solo air... just haven't received it yet, can't wait to try it out!

    After a break from riding for several years, I picked up a '10 Fisher Wahoo Disc.

    I know the dork ring is still on, but I'm not going to remove it until I fine-tune my ability to adjust my rear derailleur.

    A couple pics from my ride yesterday taken on my cell camera:

    I did test drove the Wahoo but it's out of my price range. Very nice bike.

    Thanks!

    It was a bit out of my price range as well but I loved everything about the bike so I couldn't resist. Everything from the disc brakes (rainy Oregon weather!) to the paint job were just perfect for me.

    I was looking for the Rincon Se but my LBS didn't have suitable size. Very nice color.

    The black\white scheme of the Rincon SE is definitely catchy too. I'm waiting to see how the matte paint of the Wahoo holds up to dirt/wear but I'm guessing a year or two down the road I'll wish I would've bought something with a gloss paint on it.

    Funny you say that, my LBS did not have the black/white in my size, that is why I got the SE. But overall I like it. My last bike, I built up from a Leader frame with older parts I had and newer parts as well. I really loved that bike but it was stolen within 6 months of me completing it. I did not even think of getting another bike for 4 years.

    anyway, thanks for the compliment.

    That sucks, sorry to hear that.
    The one thing I regret not doing initially was to get a SE with disc brakes. Disc brakes are the way to go. Almost run right into a tree head on couple time last week with little wet condition on the trail.

    The disc brakes were a nice touch. I have never had disc but I have taken a few rides in drizzling weather and no brake loss, which was quite a change. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to take it on the trails yet, which should be in a week or two.

    My bike, when I just got it 2 years ago



    And its current looks:


    Road Configuration



    XC Configuration

    Only the frame, head set and seatpost(while in XC config) are still original. the rest are all replaced.

    I think I've posted here in the past... but I just got a couple new parts.

    This is my '07 Specialized Hardrock. I'm the original owner - I was in a hurry, and bought new. It's drifted pretty far from stock over the last few seasons. I just got a set of Avid Elixir 5s for it - combination birthday present and team purchase. The current build is getting a little silly for the frame it's on, I suppose, but I don't anticipate being able to get a new bike until I'm back to working full-time, and I don't anticipate that until I finish with my current round of education. It's my only mountain bike and sees everything from cross-country races to skills park days.

    No way, man.. keep it up! You have a better spec'd bike than if you spent all that money on a new bike anyway, in my opinion.

    What were your upgrades, and if you don't mind me asking, why did you upgrade?

    Thanks

    This is a up close pic of what i have done so far. I upgraded my crankset and BB. The old one was junk and the a few teeth on the one chainring got bent on a rock or something.

    This is my MTB, a Bianchi Doss 6100.
    I bought it today.

    It's my second mountain bike, I sold my previous one, which was just a week old, and bought an FR instead. Probably stupid, but I enjoy my FR so I don't regret it. Although it was a really nice bike.

    Carbon headset.
    Deore and Alivio gears and brakes. The deore is pretty new.
    Might be upgrading them to XT, I'm not sure since they to the job so far.

    Things I Am going to change are the grips, pedals and the rear tire, and probably the saddle too.

    My '07 Kona Fire Mountain. Will probably keep this fairly stock except for some cockpit upgrades while I learn what works and doesn't work for me on a bike.

    We recently got his & her bikes, a new endeavor for us. The color similarity is purely coincidental.

    My Giant Talon 2 29er:



    And my wife's Hardrock:



    Everything is stock on the Talon, 'ceptin' the pedals, and the Hardrock has an upgraded woman's saddle.

    old school

    just got back into biking and wasnt sure if I'll enjoy it for long (ADD I guess) so I decided to retro fit some modern parts onto my bike along with vintage stuff.
