    Here's mine. It's just about done.




    It WAS a 2002 Jekyll 500, but there's not much original left on it. Highlights:

    Truvativ Hussevelts
    Rohloff Speedhub
    Float R (PUSHed last week)
    Mavic XM819
    Woodman LFY front hub
    Avid Juicys
    Lefty DLR
    Conti Vertical USTs

    I sure do love it. I'd cry if it left me...

    Aren't Jekyll's GREAT rides? There was so many bikes I tested before saying get me a Jekyll. I fell in love with it. I can't wait to I get my new 2005 Prophet 2000. I'm keeping my Jekyll and then again I may sale it to someone who can hammer with me. Keep the Jekyll and Prophet family. Nice bikes boys. Keep this thread alive with Jekyll love. Show them JEKYLL'S!!!

    Here's mine...

    2004 Jekyll 1000, pretty much stock except for the "custom" scratches I have added along the trail, funny how that happens when you actually ride it like it was intended to be.

    One for my girl...

    Got this on eBay tonight...

    My girlfriend has been faithfully following me on the paved trails for the past several weeks....
    on a '97 Rockhopper rigid w/no front suspension...

    Last weekend we went to the dirt trails at Huntsville state park and she wouldn't hear of staying home...
    without a peep, whimper, cry or curse...
    she took the tree roots...
    she took the drops...
    she took the washouts...
    she just smiled kept on going while she knew i was watching...
    but the shear anguish on he little face when she thought I wasn't...
    after seeing the blisters and black n blue bruises on her arms, calves, thighs, glutes...
    and other parts we won't even talk about...
    I decided it was time for me to take action...
    if she was going to subject herself to this kind punishment for my benifit...
    she should be on a ride worthy of her commitment and fortitude...
    and one that was much softer on those parts we didn't talk about earlier

    Plus it's her birthday in two weeks

    That's so cool. I just bought my 5 year daughter her 1st bike about a month ago. She loves her new Giant Taffy bike, with those white tires and all. Everytime I'm out in my garage wrenching on my ride, there's my little girl sitting on her bike with helmet on and ready to go ride. It's great. Get this she actually watch the Tour with me and liked it. I was impressed big time. I'm just a dad that loves my family and my toys.

    Man they have some cool bikes for kids now!!!!!


    White tires and all!!!

    Just so everyone knows I was actually talking about my 40+ year old girlfriend.

    My 13 year old son only child rides a custom '02 Scalpel 800.

    Sometimes I believe I have as much of an addiction buying new toys as I do riding them

    2004 Jekyll 3000 frame (warranty replacement for Raven frame) with mix of new and old components. Started to weigh all the components as I assembled the bike, but I missed a few (Lefty MAX, brake rotors) and some of them have been updated since (pedals, etc...)

    Since the pictures I have replaced the wheels with a set of Cannondale 30th anniversary (UST with the polished Hugi hub), polished the seatpost and replaced the pedals.

    Here is the component / weights list. Measure on a bathroom scale (not the most precise!), the bike comes in a 28 LBS (note that all these weights have been taken with non calibrated scales...)

    .Rear wheel (rims + hubs) __ Cannondale Rear Wheel 30th anniversary 24 spoke ________ 922
    .Rear skewer _______________ Coda Rear Skewer - 30 Anniversary _______________________ 60
    .Front tire ________________ Hutchinson UST _________________________________________ 796

    .Front rotor _______________ __________________________ _______________________________ ? ___ TBD
    .Rear rotor ________________ __________________________ _______________________________ ? ___ TBD

    Transmission
    .Shifter - Right ___________ XT SL-M750 _____________________________________________ 250 ___ Set (L+R) from Weight weenies
    .Shifter - Left ____________ N/Applicable - see above for set _________________________ 0
    .Bottom Bracket ____________ Shimano BB5500 68 mm Bottom Bracket BC 1.37x24 _________ 246

    I'm looking at Gripshift's Jekyll 800 above and I'm thinking 'what a lucky sod, he gets to have a water bottle cage on his frame!' My small frame comes with a curved top tube and no braze-ons for for water bottle cages. I've had to order a seatpost mounted cage for mine.

    I do love my month-old Jekyll and I've not ridden it nearly enough in that time.

    I have traded my old SuperV Carbon for a Jekyll 1000 frame in April. It is not a stock model at all, but this is because I used the frame trade-in programme and build up the bike from there.
    Here are the components I added:
    - Crossmax SL wheels
    - IRC Mythos XC 2 tires -
    - Magura Louise FR brakes
    - RaceFace Evolce XC crank with a RaceFace Signature XS bracket
    - Easton seatpost with a Selle Italia Trans Am Flite saddle
    - SRAM 9.0 SL derailleur
    - SRAM 9.0 shorty shifters
    - Shimano XT front derailleur.
    - Shimano PD-M 647 pedals

    Total Weight: 11,9 Kg

    The only thing I am still going to change is the front derailleur to the new SRAM X-Gen and replace the rear derailleur with a new X.9.

    Here are 2 pictures:

    Meet Lucifer

    Compared to the other posts, I think this might be an antique... 2000 Jeckyll 3000sx. Since the stock components were fairly high-end, I haven't done much to the bike since I got it except ride it. On another thread I mentioned that I'm still running original brake pads after 4 years and about 3-4,000 miles... must be my riding style which is more XC. The only Coda problem I had was with the BB and the factory replaced it with Shimano XT. I used to have XTR rear but broke it on a rock and put and XT on since I've decided I am not that worried about weight. Yes, this one is old enough to have the original frame configuration and rear shock that led to the oft-criticized "seat-bob"... I honestly don't mind it and leave both shocks on all the time. As with most of the other Jeckyll-nuts, I LOVE this bike and have never really had much desire to change to another one. The horn was a gift from my wife... reminds me to not take myself to seriously (most other riders don't anyway).

    Jekyl 400 '04

    I wouldn't call it tricked out, but it is unusual. Mazocchi AM2 forks, Hope mini brakes. It suits my rather 230lb frame however.

    jekyll was waaaaayyy cool

    until I had my Prophet...but back to the jekyll.....this bike was so much better then anything else I rode at the time. I would still be riding mine if I hadnt been hammered on a downhill by someon on a recent jekyll, which forced me to upgrade to a ...prophet 2000. Anyway my jekyll 2000 from year 2000 was just AWESOME. I loved the paint job too, almost like the 3000 but fading to yellow instead of remaining orange. Awesome build, great components....a really worthy bike.

    I know, I really like Prophet. I would love to have Lefty MAX in front, but what the heck. I will probably PUSH my rear fork and if I can make enough dough I will buy the new RUSH next year. As they say, one 'dale is good, two are better
