    got to ride s-works camber today ^^

    man was it nice!!

    only bug-bare was the internally routed dropper seat post... it was a little finicky i.e. kept slipping down.

    Tried the alloy stump jumper & it was way behind the s-works camber.

    Wanted to try a camber evo, but they didn't have one in their test line up.

    If I win lotto tonight I'll be getting the s-works for sure

    Primary bike is an 2013 XL Hammerhead Thumper 29'r Stan's Flow wheels, Fox 34mm x 140 forks, 2x10 XT, Magura MT2 brakes. I'm loving this bike the more I ride it.

    Previous bike is an 2013 XL Mach 429 carbon. I cracked the frame on a 2011 aluminum version and had to ride the SS (below) for months waiting for warranty. I rode the carbon version for about a month before I got the Thumper built up. I like the Thumper MUCH better so I haven't ridden the 429 much. I got a set of 34mm forks to try to bring the 429 up to the level of the Thumper but haven't reduced the travel and installed it yet. I will probably end up selling this bike if it doesn't work better with the fork installed. Currently built with Hope M4 brakes, 2x10 XT drive train, I9 wheels with Flow rims, WTB, Ergon, etc. Sweet bike but it doesn't work as well for me as the Thumper.

    Single speed is a 2012 XL Kona Unit. Added Stan's Flow wheels with solid axles because I was flexing the OEM wheels into the frame/forks when I stood up and mashed. Put a Reba fork (80mm travel) on when I couldn't take the jarring in my hands of high speed down hills. Magura MT2 brakes, WTB saddle, Ergon grips, etc to match other bikes. I got this bike so I could get a workout riding with my wife. It didn't work that way since I had to keep my speed up to match the gearing. I'm liking the SS better every time I ride it.

    5'10" and 230 lbs. Just got a 29er two weeks ago as a second bike; '13 GT Karakoram 3.0. I've put two rides in it so far and I'm very impressed with it. I've replaced the seat and pedals on it already since the stock GT stuff was uncomfortable, and it will be getting a new fork soon to replace the pogo XCM.

    Race face narrow wide single chain ring. Changed from a 9 speed chain up to a 10. Added a chain guide because I don't have a clutch derailleur.

    I'm 6'8", 300lbs.

    Bike: 2011 Trek Cobia

    Original Purchase:




    Current State (crappy Pic):



    Current state in the above photo:
    Wheels: Sun Ringle MTX 33 Rims With Hope pro 2 evo hubs, 36h, sapim triple butted spoked,
    Tires: Bontrager FR3 Front, Bontrager 29 Front OEM moved to rear
    Cassette: Shimano HG61 29er. 12-36T
    Bars: Race Face Evolve XC 710mm width, 25.4 Clamp
    Grips: Oury
    Brakes: Same crappy Promax as stock, front rotor upgraded to 203mm.
    Pedal: Wellgo Platform (the cheaper ones, not magnesium)







    The wheels where a huge improvement in stiffness. Less side to side flex, especially in the front. No more pinch flats, especially with the volume increase in the rear. Quite tight between the rear derailleur and tire though.

    I thought that was a major change, but 2014 is going to be the year I really frankenstein this beast.


    Planned Upgrades, Parts in Hand, on bike, and on order:

    Front Axle: 9mm thru axle, Dt Swiss RWS
    Stem: Race Face Respond 60mm, 10 degree Rise
    Bars: Race Face Respond 740mm, 31.8 clamp, 1.5" rise
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite Setback
    Seatpost Collar: Thomson
    Seat: Bontrager SSR
    Brakes: Shimano Saint
    Rotors: Dual Shimano Icetech 203mm
    Crank: Race Face Turbine 3x9
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT direct mount with Adapter (tire clearance)
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Left Shifter: Shimano Saint 3 Speed SL810 (got this for $35!)
    Right Shifter: Shimano XT 9 speed
    Chain: KMC










    Looking forward to this build. My brakes have been scary for a long time. I chew through pads, they are noisy as hell, and they prevent me from going fast because I can't ever stop how I want to. So I went balls out on the brakes.

    I have been looking forward to a thomson for a while, disappointed that with the new seat it really doesn't set me back any further than my 12mm setback ssr post that was bent. However, I feel I can comfortably sit back further on the saddle. Haven't test ridden it yet. Have mostly everything, waiting for a few items to come in and I will build it up.

    Looking at tires too. The bontragers have good grip, but weak sidewalls. I don't air down or run tubeless because of my weight, but I do ride places where sidewall tears are possible. I have done it before 3 miles into a 6 mile trail. Walking back always sucks. Looking at the X-King, Trail King, and some Maxxiss models. Need big volume and super tough sidewalls while having lowish rolling resistance and good pavement behavior.
