    Very nice, I'm waiting impatiently for mine to arrive.

    A couple of questions on your build:

    What stem length do you have on it in the photo, and does the cytoe guard work with the e13 chain guide in place (I take that to be the e13 guide that I can see behind the chainrings)?

    On the use of a lot of travel issue, unfortunately I have found that to be a bit of a trait of the CTD shocks. Retuning of the shock could be a good option. Otherwise, I see in the TBLTc forum that someone has put a CCDB on their’s.:D

    In the process of restoring my old 26" Schwinn Moab 1, I've got a new fork coming for it today manitou minute expert. Plan on riding it for a year or so and then getting a FS 29er next year!

    No pics (yet) but I have a few 29ers around:

    '11 Camber Elite - suspension stock at the moment but a Reba RL and Monarch XX will find their way onto the frame later this year...or when I wear the existing parts out. Mike C. built a set of 36h MTX33-based wheels up for use on this bike. Rear hub is an XT and front is an Alfine dynamo; at the moment they're shod with 2.2" Captains. 203F/185R rotors and the stock Elixirs seem to work well but the hydraulic portion of the system may be swapped for something else if they don't perform on steep descents. Looking at dropper posts too.

    '11 Rockhopper Pro - this one got turned into something of a trail bike and it's perfect for use on the goat paths which some of our area parks departments attempt to pass off as "improved bikeways". Stock 36h rear, front built by Mike C. - another Alfine dynamo laced to a Stan's Flow 36h. Rubber varies...Serfas Drifters or 2.0" Captains depending on the condition of our local trails. I fitted a set of Titec H-bars and Shimano combo brake/shifter levers, while the brakes themselves were replaced along with the controls. A remote lockout for the Recon Silver fork will be installed come rebuild time.

    '12 Fargo - pure homebuilt. M590 trekking crank/external BB, XTR rear/Tiagra front dérailleurs. ST-4503 levers fitted to a Woodchipper, itself atop a double-stem steerer. (The lower stem has a short piece of handlebar tubing clamped into it so a bag mount can be attached.) Brakes are Bengal MB700Ts and rotors 203F/185R. Seatpost is a USE Sumo at the moment though a Thudbuster LT is due by summer. Wheels come from either the Rockhopper or the Camber's original 32h setup is used with 47mm Continental Country Tours for paved path work. My wife just picked up a completely built '11 Fargo 3 and I'm going to see how its wheels hold up for singletrack riding before obtaining a similar set. A dynamo front is in the cards for her regardless.

    My '13 Pugsley frame - the Big Red One - showed up last week and I shall soon begin crafting on that project as well.

    6'4" and 240ish in gear. I have canoes for feets and have toe overlap problems with the Fargo unless riding with the slimmest profile road shoe in our closet. Thankfully, all the tight-n-wild turns are done on the Specializeds, not the Salsa.

    My stock Alex rims have been ok. I just had my rear wheel in for a tubeless conversion and had 6 loose spokes. My lbs adjusted them and said for me to keep an eye on them. I have about 800 miles on them and I am a 300lbs as well so I guess that it is not too bad.

    Bike was completely rebuilt this winter, everything is new except the frame. i went all out this time
    Every part of the bike was thought out for stength, stopping power and looks, right down to the gold rotor bolts. No one may notice them but I know they are there and thats what counts, I am so happy with the rebuild can hardly wait to ride it in the spring. Rebuilt the GF bike as well, been a busy winter.

    I'm knocking over trees on an Access Stealth 4.0. Everything is stock for the moment, but I am having a new set of wheels laced up as the ones that came with it are not meant for a clyde.

    *UPDATE* I'm rocking a new set of Flow EX rims! I still need to baptize them in dirt, and plan on doing that today!!!

    I'm 6'4" 205-210 + gear. Ride a 2011 Trek/Fisher HiFi Plus 29r size XL/21" seat tube. SRAM X7 drive train, Juicy 3 brakes. Stock Bontrager SSR wheels (shimano hubs). 100mm travel. Upgrades: Wider Bars, ODI grips, KS 125mm dropper post, Kenda Nevgal tires, WTB Pure seat.
    Rims have held up well as has suspension (Rock Shox Reba RL and Fox RP2). Brakes are noisy and get out of alignment easily. Overall I am very happy with the bike. I ride it hard and it has held up well.

    Typically ride So Cal rocky/dusty trails with small drops. Lots of up, lots of down, not much horizontal. Bike is a good climber, better with pro-pedal engaged going up. A bit heavy, but that has a lot to do with heavy wheels and tubes and XL frame size.

    I recommend it.:thumbsup:

    6'7. 190lbs or so without gear -- so tall, but I guess I'm not QUITE a Clyde any more.

    Ride a 2012 Trek X-Caliber that I bought as a left over earlier this year. So far, all I've done is swap out the grips for the Ergon GX1s; loving the little climbers for road hills. Running a set of H2s for some road training most of the time.

    About to order Shimano XT brakes for it; I'm already done with the Avid's and (based on everything I've read on here) I suspect I'm not going to get them sorted.

    Loving the bike. Feel so much less folded up than on my 2001 21" Kona Caldera, though it seems that had better components, honestly.

    I am currently 6' and 205 lbs. down from 275 in February of this year. I am now riding a '13 Specialized Stumpjumper HT Comp size Large. I have only owned this ride for about 3 months now. I was riding a Carve Comp before, but it was stolen out of my garage. The Stumpjumper is a great bike for my local trails. Unfortunately for me, I have to drive about 20 minutes from my house to get to any decent off road riding. Therefore, I only get to ride the Stumpjumper on the weekends. I have about 150 miles on it so far. Compaired to my road bike, Roubiax, which is only a month older and is about to turn over 2,000 miles in 4 months.
