    Clipless pedals in the near future, after that I will upgrade components as needed or when they break. This is my first mtn bike and really just getting going in the sport. I gotta say though, i am hooked!

    Here's my new steed...

    08 Diamondback Sortie 3, built up from a frame. Still a number of upgrades I want to do to it, but already very happy with it so far.

    Thanx Haven't been able to ride it much since I got it built....the rain has turned everything into quicksand out here. I'm hoping to take it out for some nice singletrack here in the near future.

    Rain usually doesn't slow me down, but quicksand will, lol. Where do you live/ride?

    I live in the mojave desert. We basically get two sorts of weather here....hot & windy, and cold & windy. Throw in some rain, and it's just soup.

    Very nice! Btw, how do you like the x9? I was thinking of getting that or the x0 (don't know if it comes in 8 speed though).

    According to the SRAM user manual X0 - X5 work on 8 and 9 speed. Never tried any of the SRAM stuff myself tho, always used shimano.

    "SRAM X.0 / X-9 / X-7 / X-5 rear derailleurs are designed for use with:
    · SRAM 9/8-speed 1:1 Actuation Ratio trigger or twist shifters
    · 9/8-speed cogsets
    · 9/8-speed chains: SRAM Power Chains™, and Shimano® HG"

    I love the Sram, solid stuff . Got them on both bikes, but the big difference is the smooth shifting from the xo shifters on my Black, I have X7 shifters on the mission. They still are great shifters, but x0 or x9 shifters are nice! X0 has more adjustablitiy and lighter. BTW, I had been using Shimano xtr, xt , lx components since 97, switched to sram with the purchase of the Mission in 08 and I love Sram 1:1 ratio and there derailleurs feel smoother and shift better IMO, I love my NOIR carbon crank but still love XT cranks, there great. I am really into FSA too, I am thinking about a new FSA double BB30 in the near future,

    If you upgrade go for x9 shifters and derailleur, not uberexpensive and won't feel bad if you smash your rear derailleur up!! I love the 990 Sram cassette too.

    FYI, the 2010 SRAM X9 and X7 rear derailleurs are almost identical according to a SRAM tech I spoke with. He said the only difference is that X9 has a couple more parts in aluminum to save weight. Everything else including the pulleys is the same.

    Based on that, I replaced the X9 that came on my Mission with a 2010 X7 rear derailleur when it wore out.

    Wow! That's an awesome looking Recoil. I love the olive green and black color combo.

    Not bad at all. Good looking ReCoil. Just looks funny to me the way your saddle is so far forward, Maybe you'll like a little shorter stem and slide the seat back a inch and youll be balanced over the bike better, IMO. Ofcourse it is your bike and all you Just my opinion. Enjoy That is what it is all about.

    Thanks, the stem worked with the other seat well, but I have to slide this new one forward to reach the bar. As it happens though, I find myself more over the top of my cranks, like on my Specialized, seems to work for me and its easier to get behind the saddle for the descents.

    In that case, consider a seatpost without setback if you're ever in the market for a new one. Riding with a saddle that far off center makes bending the rails a lot easier.
