    I guess I'll get it going with my spankin' new ('04) Ram XT 2500.

    -05 Sherman Flick 150mm
    -X-9 Shifters and Derailleur
    -Mavic F219 Disc rims w/ XT hubs and 2.5 WTB Weirwolf's
    -Race Face Prodigy XC cranks and FR BB (soon to be Evolve w/ X-type BB)
    -Deore Hydro's with an 8" up front/6" in back
    -Shimano 545 Pedals
    -Easton EA70 post, Ritchey stem, Specialized Enduro bar

    This will primarily be a light-duty freeride, rad ass trailbike!

    Nice bike -- I'd look into getting a 20mm thru-axle for the front to stiffen it up. Can be done fairly cheaply.

    Whoa... a 6 inch SC fork with a QR axle? Crazy... Uh... You can't convert standard QR into 20 mm. You have to get new lowers with the 20 mm dropouts. Manitou uses an optional hex-lock axle. My first impressions are good, feels stiff.

    The QR is plenty stiff....

    for my style of riding. Even blowing through rock gardens and fast rooty downhills, I didn't notice any flex of deflection. I have yet to do any drops. I had to stay budget minded when building the bike. But I foretell a Sherman Slider in my future!

    I just ordered a o3 Sherman Firefly. I hope I like it as much as you like your flick. (^.^) From what I hear, it's a great fork. And hopefully it won't die on me as so many other forks have.

    This bike was orignally baught by my buddy back when we were in grade school. last summer me and him moved in together with our gf's. turns out women suck. my buddy and his women moved far away but this beauty lol, has been left chained to this tree outside my apartment for over a yr, im thinking of cutting the chain and making her my own, a single speed probably.

    this bike is probably from the 1990-1993 era im not sure. i baught my huffy in 5th grade with money i saved for yrs, then he saved more and baught this bike, put my huffster to shame. well here she is in all her rusted glory.

    Heres a pic of my 2005 Raleigh RDS 7. As far as I am aware, this model is only sold in South Africa. It features a single pivot ali frame with Fox Float R at the back and an F100R fork. My version has a full XT grpupset including dual control shifters and discs. So far I am very impressed...

    A guy in our group rides a yellow one, alo seem to enjoy the RDS quite abit. Still...I dunno bike seems heavy compared to my almost stock Giant NRS3. I love the RM9 hardtail frame thought.

    Not that heavy

    Your mate would be the Dirtrider dude who rides an RDS 5. The frame aint heavy, its the components that do it. Mine is just a tad heavier than my giant hardtail.

    Aahh yes. Well he does not own a NRS, his girlfriend does, which is a small, he rides a large frame so the RDS will feel better than the NRS to him.

    2001 M80

    This is my wife's hardtail, which is basically stock and is doing comfort duty, though it did some serious rides before we got her a FS bike. The only changes are:

    - LX shifters - taken from her Rocky ETSX
    - Weyless riser bar - comfy position for cruising with stock stem
    - Avid SD3 rear brake - added after adjustment screw stripped on stock Tektro
    - Older, cushier Velo saddle taken off my V-Link

    We used to have SRAM Rockets on this bike, but they went to the ETSX. The ETSX now has SRAM ESP (8-spd!), so the Rockets may go back on the M80. We both like twist shift...

    My Ram 2500 ('05) built up as best I could:

    Swinger 4-way coil
    Shi#mano lx/xt derailleurs/shifters
    Avid 8" bbdb F/R
    Avid speed dial levers
    Truvativ hussefelt cranks/Gigapipe DH BB/Raceface NS Bashguard
    Intense mag 30 dh rims on hadley hubs
    Maxxis mobsters (2.7 F/2.5 R) - DH casings
    Marzocchi 66VF (150 mm travel version)

    The out of frame bike leaning against the tree is my roommate's SC chameleon. Took this photo at "Work."
