    Only the best of course. In my case it's a customized Pivot mach 429, full XTR drivetrain, 2X9, Magura Marta SL brakes, Stan's Crest wheels, Spesh Ground Control tires (tubeless, of course), and all less than 26 pounds. It flies uphill in an unbelievable manor...or could there be a secret jet rocket hidden under the saddle?

    Anthem X29... But thay's just because I'm moving back to FL in a year. If I was staying in SoCal permenently I would probably have gone with a more Trail or AM geometry...

    2002 Specialized Enduro Pro. Purchased new in July 2002, coming up on 11 years with this bad boy.
    In the past 11 years I have replaced the Cranks, Stem, Rear Derailuir, Front Rim, Rotors, Forks and rear Shock Bushing.
    I have certainly got my money out of it with trips to Mammoth, Big Bear and local riding.

    I would love to get a new Enduro, but the prices are a bit more steep these days.

    11 year with one bike? that's awesome....great investment! Longest is 5 years for me. Hopefully my latest purchase lasts me a while. Don't really want to be spending thousands every few years lol...

    Same damn bike(s) I've been riding since 2004. An Ellsworth Joker, 7" rear wheel travel, XTR/XT drivetrain, and the same set of Spinergy Xyclone Disc wheels that I put on it back then. Haven't been trued once, just like my other 3 Spinergy wheelsets. The fork is a Euro-version of the AM 1. I have measured the travel from the stanchion seal and it is more than 150mm, more like 157mm. Don't know why, but the fork has a wonderful buttery travel feeling, I've had no issues with it, and I can certainly live with it have MORE travel than claimed by the manufacturer. Many thousands of trail-miles have been logged on that fork, and it has never given me a problem.

    I also have an ancient singlespeed conversion from a 2005 Jamis Dakar XLT frame that I ride most of the time. I run a 32X17 gear on it. Perfect for the coastal canyon and mesa rides down San Diego way. It's the only 5" travel full suspension singlespeed I've seen on the trails, so it's pretty "unique". The rear shock on this bike, as well a the Joker is an air Manitou 3-Way. I've had no problems with this shock on either bikes, the Joker's shock being the longest stroke air shock that Manitou makes in that model. The fork is a 32 mm stanchion Fox TALAS, which I basically never change from the 130 mm travel setting. It has blue Enduro seals installed.

    The Joker weighs 28.5 lb.s and the singlespeed weighs 26.

    Oh, and btw, the singlespeed conversion was accomplished by installing a YESS Research industies adjustable tension chain tensioner. It has worked perfectly since I got the correct amount of chain tension dialed in. After adding singlespeed crank with a polycarbonate bashguard/chainguide, I've had no chain dropping incidents at all, none. Not bad for a 5" travel rear suspension singlespeed. I highly recommend the YESS product to anybody looking to convert a suspension frame to singlespeed.

    I'm riding a Ventan El Ciclon with custom geo. I'm also on a full rigid Coconino cruiser single speed. Another Coco cruiser SS showed up on my doorstep today. This one is designed for XC racing.

    I like the T 29 but I like the T 275 better, I'm only 5'6" and I feel there is some compromise in the geometry for someone my size. I'm 185 and the frame isn't the stiffest latterally either, nothing glaring but the brakes rub on steep climbs and I like a quiet bike.
    The 275 is more bottomless in its travel, latterally stiff and has the nice slack geometry I like with better rollover than most 26" tires. Weight is about the same.
