    Here's my Ace, just finished building it today, still have to fine tune the front derailleur, spent the whole afternoon on it without sucess... Unfortunately due to a lesion on my knee it will take some time to take it to the trail.

    Nice ride and video eujinc. The Fred 'Shed is a rough trail; then again, I went when the rocks were slick and humidity was 95%. Cool to see another Sette in MD. Check out my pic from the 'shed overlook above.

    Here is my new Sette Morph... I've added HOPE skewers and quick release, Price Point hooked me up w/ a 2010 FSA SL-K seat post since the other was faulty, THE locking grips, and a Sette EVO saddle.... I can't get over how light this bike is... Very impressed w/ the new SLX components... That's coming from my last bike which was a Salsa w/ Race Face Next cranks, and XT/XTR components... The SLX components can take more of a beating IMO...

    I don't have any good pictures of the bike complete, but here's a picture where I'm riding and others are walking. This was my first race on the new build. I was happy with the ride. But, I got a very average result.

    ive been running the piranha in the rear and it works well but it struggles in the loose if i get out of the saddle. the python in the front is excellent though.
    ive thought about trying the python in the rear it may work better.
    looking at your rear tire and my python it's a multi directional tire and yours is set to be front. try turning your rear around and see if that helps.
    RAH!

    Instinct

    The bike arrived well packed and the box (within another box) was not at all beat up.Everything was wrapped and padded well. Much better experience than my last online bike purchase directly from a smaller Cali manufacturer.

    I could never stand those narrow flat bars so I swapped it. I didn't want to score/scratch the FSA carbon seatpost so I threw on the Truvativ Alu until I get everything dialed in just right. What's the weight limit on the stock FSA carbon post anyway - I'm 225? Swapped the saddle, tires, stem, grips and added my pedals and a few frame saver patches. Wheel decals seem very fragile. I like the bike and it's my first carbon frame MTB so I find myself riding it like it's made of glass or something. Although I've never ridden hard and was always smooth. No drops or jumps of more than curb height for me as I realize this is an XC carbon frame.

    Even the LBS who put it together said they thought it was a beautiful bike .They said the only real issue was getting the brakes bled and dialed in and torquing everything to spec to include the BB and crank bolts. I even got compliments wheeling it out of the shop to my car.

    Looking good drmayer. How do you like it so far?

    kzsteve, that Instinct looks awesome. Gave a thought or two on the Small Block 8 and ended up deciding for a pair of High Rollers, mainly because the tall knobs on the side. Mind to post your thoughts about the Kendas?

    Truthfully I bought them as they are capable of running 85 psi with tubes which allows me to do some road/cardio work. They're good on hard pack and slightly loose singletrack trails too.

    I'd prefer to get a second set of wheels and have one for road and one for off road and several sets of tires to swap btw them. Alas the paycheck only goes so far.

    Besides those Stan Crow tires that came stock did not impress me. I have yet to convert to tubeless - what can I say.
    No, I don't wanna race.

    Good thing I stayed aways from the SM8 then, by the way I take corners I would end up in the ground for sure, ehehhehe.

    I'm looking into building a HT with low end parts to get around town and road trips, letting the Ace only for the trail.

    facelessfools how tall are you?

    I've seen some of your pictures and the M looks pretty small for you. Are you 100% comfortable with the sizing? How happy are you with the Ace as a race bike?

    im right under 5' 11''. As for the fit, its perfect! i have excellent control of the bike while standing, plenty of room for my legs while standing as well. while sitting i prefer a setback post but i always have. with the 110mm stem i could shorten it if i wanted because i have no clearance issues but i like the lower stance while climbing.
    i love the ace! i have had some tough races last season and the bike was not slowing me down at all.
    my last race was in fontana CA, and they ran the course in reverse so it was a lot of steep singletrack climbs and the ace has very efficient and handled the descents well. the suspension is very bob resistant but shines when it needs to.
    i've run a 130mm fork in front but now i have a 100mm and i prefer how low the 100mm gets me.

    Thanks guys!
    Yeah, you're probably right highdell. Although it's actually plenty visible from the driver's point of view, it would stay a tad cleaner higher up. I've also considered trying it midway up the left seatstay, but haven't gotten around to it (tho it'd surely get a good coating of trail dust there).

    [edit] Oh yeah, considered the seat bag too, but it seems kinda floppy there.

    Hmmm, I believe it as about 20.2 lbs before I loaded it down with bags, Ergons, bottle cage, computer, bell, and blinky.
    (But I was able to unload about 10 lbs from my midsection this summer, so maybe it evens out. LOL)

    Phantom

    Here is my Sette, this was built with a heavy lean towards light.
    Most of the "usual suspect" light components were used.

    Except for some early growing pains, this bike has always left me with a grin.
    Somewhere around 13-14 #'s

    Here is a better picture of my Phantom in its all-mountain form, which is really just a dropper post and stronger rims. In XC form, I run a Thompson Elite post and Stans rims with thin tires and Marta SL disks. I just got back from 3 days of flogging my bike in Lake Tahoe and it was great! I think it is a little under 20 lbs.

    i wish! there was a bunch of pro level roadies in the event that wrecked! and the numbers started at 30 so they could tell who was in "advanced" or beginner. i was advanced.

    Thanks though! ill probubly get some more shots when the race host puts them up.

    The specs on the new Jamr do however sound interesting compaired to the new Reken

    "The 26” aluminum hardtail is alive and well at Sette. This all new lightweight alloy hardtail is perfect
    for that rider that wants that 26” alloy feel, yet wants to remain competitive. This model features a
    Fox Racing 32 F –RL 100mm fork, a full Shimano SLX group, a Mavic Crossride disc wheelset
    and Avid Elixir 5 brakes.
    The Jamr will be available later this year."

    the ace is an awesome frame and it performs amazingly! but i have only one complaint! the seat stays are so freakin' wide you tend to hit them with your heals sometimes.

    what do you guys think:
    blue hubs, white and black spokes and black rims or..
    blue hubs, black spokes and white rims?

    My Reken

    My reken, I know this has been done up a few thousand times but here goes..





    parts include
    Sram x.9 drivetrain
    bb7 disc brakes
    truvativ stylo crank
    Rhyno lite/deore xt wheelset.
    Dart 3 fork..

    Its a Solid trail bike, but does come in at a heavy 28 pounds..
    Will eventually upgrade some of the cockpit to some lighter gear, and switch to some lighter tires.

    Guy2600:

    Are those tires true 2.4 in width? Any rubbing on the rear?
    Curious as the sette states 2.3 is the biggest tire size.

    My mountain kings measured 2.4" wide. I had a hard time snapping a good photo but there's 1/4" gap all around (sides & top). So far no issues...

    Are those the KCNC rotors? How much did they weigh, do you like them? What kind of pads are you using with them?

    Nice bike.

    those are the KCNC rotors, they work pretty well not as well as the hope floating rotors i had but they still work well for less then half the price!
    should be getting lighter derailleur pulleys(the seals on the bearings for these fell off so i dont want them to bind up) and Ti rings to replace these cheap ones.. currently at 21lbs 11oz with some dirt

    thanks!
