    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Here we go, just got the cross bike and put a couple snowy/mucky rides on it, rides like a champ and can't wait to put some discs on it, forgot how crappy the canti's were! The FXR is awesome, handles rough trails great and climbs real nice

    Yeah, I know, both bikes are red/black, that was not by design, got a great deal on the cross bike over on RBR and sold my road bike, but red & black sure is cooool

    Jibbin, nice. More or less, I take what I can get. There's a few of us that ride around campus occasionally. Plus there are some pretty nice dirt jumps near prospect and shields if you're into that. Check out the website in my signature.

    i don't have a pic of my MTB but here's the frankenbike and the workhorse


    "I came out for exercise, gentle exercise, and to notice the scenery and to botanise. And no sooner do I get on that accursed machine than off I go hammer and tongs; I never look to right or left, never notice a flower, never see a view--get hot, juicy, red--like a grilled chop. Get me on that machine and I have to go. I go scorching along the road, and cursing aloud at myself for doing it."

    My mistake. I wouldn't mind owning "just" a Heckler myself. Trying to figure out what 5X5/6X6 to build up but and the Heckler stand over is just a tad high. If it wasn't for that possibly painful detail I would be building one up myself. I don't really need one but I wouldn't mind the cush.

    I just checked the SC site and the med heckler has more standover than my med chameleon, I guess do to the bent TT. What size is yours? IIRC we are about the same height.

    I'm 5'5", on a small heckler. I feel it fits pretty well...if memory serves (and it rarely does) stand over are the same between smalls/med....med. has the bent TT, mine is straight. I would have preferred more standover....but I got no complaints.

    Nice stable there Dave, just picked up a cross bike myself and can't wait to put some discs on it, the canti's really suck, I thought they might be as strong as the road bike brakes but not even close.

    Forgot to mention...

    Oh, bike #3 and #4 (Redline SS Monocog and Chase) Shimano parts content: Zero!

    I feel a mini-editorial typing itself...

    Not a specific goal, but a happy occurance as far as I'm concerned. With Race Face and SRAM putting out such slick stuff, not hard to build a decent Shimano-free bike these days... ended up with Quality cables and housing, ACS freewheel and SRAM cassette, Avid brakes..

    Shimano makes some nice cable housing kits, but I don't think it's any better than the Teflon lined Quality stuff off the bulk rolls. The Saint cranks are not bad, but I like the ability to fine tune chain line with a guide better with the new Race Face stuff. And never realized how flexy XTR cranks are until riding on the new Race Face stuff, when they wear out (and $200 in chainrings, not again...), will replace with RF Deus. And quite frankly, Shimano shifting sucks... skips, grinds and most anoyingly, their rear deraillures need constant attention, I'm reminded of this nearly every time I ride my cross/road bike. Somebody made a better mouse trap, and provides much better customer support.

    Death to force-fed, Shimano Rapid-Rise and Dual Control. Works great if all we do is ride downgrade on smooth and groomed XC race courses.

    Other than the XTR front on the XC bike, where a top-swing SRAM won't fit (SRAM is releasing a bottom-swing FD later this year), no more Shimano mountain bike shifting for me. And SRAM is coming out with road shifting within a year...

    If I had to buy a new road bike now, it would have Campy on it. I used to race BMX in the 70s and 80s with Campy cranks before the first Redline Flight cranks. Still good stuff. Just glad we are not all still riding on soft aluminum Suntour cranks anymore!

    Cheers,

    Dave

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Not a specific goal, but a happy occurance as far as I'm concerned. With Race Face and SRAM putting out such slick stuff, not hard to build a decent Shimano-free bike these days... ended up with Quality cables and housing, ACS freewheel and SRAM cassette, Avid brakes..

    Shimano makes some nice cable housing kits, but I don't think it's any better than the Teflon lined Quality stuff off the bulk rolls. The Saint cranks are not bad, but I like the ability to fine tune chain line with a guide better with the new Race Face stuff. And never realized how flexy XTR cranks are until riding on the new Race Face stuff, when they wear out (and $200 in chainrings, not again...), will replace with RF Deus. And quite frankly, Shimano shifting sucks... skips, grinds and most anoyingly, their rear deraillures need constant attention, I'm reminded of this nearly every time I ride my cross/road bike. Somebody made a better mouse trap, and provides much better customer support.

    Death to force-fed, Shimano Rapid-Rise and Dual Control. Works great if all we do is ride downgrade on smooth and groomed XC race courses.

    Other than the XTR front on the XC bike, where a top-swing SRAM won't fit (SRAM is releasing a bottom-pull FD later this year), no more Shimano mountain bike shifting for me. And SRAM is coming out with road shifting within a year...

    If I had to buy a new road bike now, it would have Campy on it. I used to race BMX in the 70s and 80s with Campy cranks before the first Redline Flight cranks. Still good stuff. Just glad we are not all still riding on soft aluminum Suntour cranks anymore!

    Cheers,

    Dave
    I used to strive for a non-S bike too. The one place where S- has always got my money is the cassette. The jump on the SRAM cassettes(28-34 iirc) just doesn't work for me. The good news is that the new for '06 cassettes SRAM is putting out will be eliminating a lot of that complaint (30-34, iirc).
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Good point. That 11-34 SRAM PG-990 on my XC bike doesn't bother me much though. You probably already know, but the heavier PG-970 11-34 cassette has a more uniform cluster with 30-34 on the low-gear end, it's just the 990 that's this way because the 11-32 and 11-34 990 are exactly the same except the largest cog riveted on it. I'd consider using a 970 SRAM cassette, but they are as heavy as a Deore.

    My Chase has a SRAM 990 11-32 on it. 28-32 gap there, good. Only mountain bike with an Shimano cassette on it here is the AC with a 11-34 XT on it, and...

    Yes, this is good news, and I was told this on the phone with them too recently. I will replace the XT 11-34 on the AC with one of those new ones. I'll wear the current Shimano 11-34 and a used spare out first, but I am not purchasing any more Shimano cassettes. The Ultegra on the cross bike will also eventually get replaced with a SRAM cassette.

    The best way we can show a company that we do not care for a new narrow-target market group of components is not to buy and use them. And competition drives technology, and necessity is the mother of invention, etc.

    oops, # 17, yes the Redline and it's disc ready w/tabs and disc wheels, definitely one of the things I was looking for in the bike. I hadn't rode canti's in 10 years probably and I knew I would want discs but I was surprised at the LACK of stopping power in the stock brakes. So good choice on the discs on your cross bike, how do they work compared to the discs on the MB?

    The same, they are Avid BB Road mechanical disk brakes, but other than the lever pull ratio and bright silver finish, they are the same as the mountain bike Avid mechanical disks as far as I can feel. There is a bit more modulation in the lever feel with the Ultegra road levers (and Cane Creek cross-top levers) than with most rim-brake type levers on mountain bikes. I had to dial the Avid lever's speed dial to the most modulation setting to get them closer to where I like them on my Chase. I'm still going to put Juicys or Hope M4s on that Chase someday.

    This Redline stuff is cool. My Monocog came with disc-ready hubs and disc mounts on the frame and fork. I plan to keep rim brakes on that bike though, but may rethink if needing new rims or wheels sometime in the future. What I've got now works fine... after I replaced the Tektro stock brakes that came on the Redline with cheap Avid brakes and Speed Dial levers. The Tektro levers were poor performers, but the Tektro brakes were not that bad. Just a bit flexy and a spring broke.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    is how I use it. 4" rear, 6" front that can also go to 4" for climbing with a flick of the wrist. With 2.3 tires that are on it now it is 28lbs.

    fun for me.

    I made this a bit more fun for me, and dug through the archives for some bike pics. Nothing Earth-shattering, but made for some nice memories. Anyway, in no particular order, the Endurho, Homegrown (singled), Jamis Cross bike (no complete pics on mtbr), Merckx, and the new 9er

    Hi, I'm Dan and I'm an alcoholic...

    lurking somewhere in the cement jungle of the Tech Center, far, far, faaarrrr away from any decent singletrack

    I call them my Xmas Bikz. No the pix aren't great, no the bikes aren't clean, and yes, the head angle on the hardtail is slacker than the FS bike.

    Turners ride so well that they don't need any stinking brakes, so I don't use 'em, cuz the extra weight just slows me down. OK, I'm waiting for my next set: a juicy set of Juicys. Yet one more winter bike project that my wife may just leave me over

    Hey jrok, that rear shock looks familiar. You didn't buy that from me and get it revalved, didja?

    So I just sold my DH Comp, so I guess I don't own that anymore, but I still love my 2003 Epic Disc, over-abused, and under-used, and the RMX came today, and I'm extremely stoked about that bad boy. I'm from Monument. Wahoo.

    LOL... thanks for the complement, unfortunately it's in parts again on my garage floor... I can't leave well enough alone. Hopefully I'll get my new parts tomorrow and it will ride again

    I really like how rides but I'm still positive the bike is far superior to my talent, hopefully I'll grow into its potential.

    D@mn that Imperial is sexy. In case you're not already aware, watch your front hydro line, I had mine get caught on my front tire once when the fork compressed (while running it through the steerer) it nearly sent me over the bars. Nice bike.

    Yeah, brakes and fork work

I'm a little frustrated having sent them back and having them come back with the lever still pulling back to the bar with no braking force (if I pull the lever quickly it's rock hard, pull slowly and it just sinks to the bar). I'm thinking the master cylinder is toast but it'll take some more emails and UPS to ride this bike.

    I also was waiting on getting my fork back from Marzocchi, I had them press the alloy steerer in my Z150 (the guy I purchased the fork from agreed to pay for this). The fork came on Friday too, the alloy steerer saved me .7lbs from the front of the bike and I'm happy.

    Without a good rear brake I decided to take the Chap dirt jumpin on Saturday and had a blast.

    Thanks man, glad you mentioned it. The first time I got on the bike with the hydro line popped into that cheesy little clip, it popped out and was on the tire. I put two zip-ties on the lower and problem solved. I ran the line down through the steerer, using a peice of 5/8" OD heater hose to keep it from rubbing metal. Works well now, the line moves out and back, nowhere near the tire anymore.

    I really liked that Chase, but it was too long of a frame for me (it was the Large).

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Yo, just to let y'all know, the RMX, so far as I've ridden, is a much, much better bike than the Giant DH. It feels sooo much better doing drops and jumps, I love it. If you're looking for a freeride bike and got some money to spend, definitely look into the RMX...

    Is that RUST on the rear bed panel I haven't seen real automotive rust since I left PA. Of course, I haven't seen that much green since then either I miss a lot of stuff from back east.

    Of course, it's nice to be able to ride more than 5 months a year too And I have a decent cheezesteak place right down the street now. Might explain why I can never lose that last 10 lbs.
