    Some new toy pics for those suffering from ARS

    Just got this today. Can't wait to have it built up. Obviously it doesnt have much and the rear wheel is that of my Trek 820 and isnt even disc so I can't even use it. It is a 2003 AC1 frame, Tank headset, brand new PsyloXC Tullio (has warranty card even), Tioga DH seat (may change, dunno) and LX front derailleur. What I'm putting on it that I have in my garage are.... Atomlab front wheel, 2.7Mobster/2.6IRC KujoDH, XTR r.der, XT shift(r), LX shift(f). And depending on what fork i'm getting to replace my V10 that should free up atleast a stem (Azonic Shorty) and some bars (Truvativ Hussefelt) but that depends if I go with that or buy a Kingpin or something else new. (Opinions still needed for that so feel free to chime in. )

    So Here's my ideal build that I'm gonna try and get, some of the parts i just have to send the money for from friends.
    2003 18"Giant AC1
    Swinger4Way 450&500# springs
    2003 Rock Shox PsyloXC Tullio
    Tank headset (probably upgrade to Pig)
    LX f.der
    XTR r.der (from V10 when I swap out for my X.9)
    XT r.shift (from V10)
    LX f.shift
    Atomlab Trailpimp/Atomlab 20mm front wheel (stupid strong and cool )
    Shimano Deore cranks/bb (possibly, theyre cheap so they'll work for a while)
    Azonic Shorty stem (as long as I get sherpa's supert)
    Truvativ Hussefelt bars (as long as I get sherpa's supert)
    f.t. 2.6 IRC Kujo
    r.t. 2.7 Maxxis Mobster
    ODI Ruffian grips
    Brakes are undecided right now but are going to cost me the most as far as the parts I need. Currently I'm debating between.... Avid Mechs, Juicy5s, Hayes Mechs (way cheap) and HFX9s of course used offers are welcome.
    Same goes for rear wheel, I have no idea what I'm going to use. Just a normal QR wheel that is built on a pretty decent rim as I'm a big person, and disc compatible of course.

    Here's some sucky pics from my camera phone.... yes I do actually have some decent cameras and yes I'm too lazy to actually upload it since I can just send the pics from my phone to my email.

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

    My condolences. I am very sorry to hear that you were forced to purchase a Giant AC. Don't go too big on that thing!

    Psh...I didn't purchase it. I traded for it. It's not like its my main rig. It's my XC/Trail/Light FR bike.

    That's cool. I've got a buddy who rides one, and he throws down pretty good. I'm sure you've seen these already.

    tony, that thing looks like its gonna be pretty sweet. get it finished up soon. and for your v10, if you can swing it, i would look at bizutch's 888r over on RM....stupid low cost.

    Thanks for not insulting it. It has feelings.

    How much is it? I saw one over there for like $550ish shipped or something but I dont know if thats his or not. I'll give it a look. Of course that'd require borriowing atleast 200-300 from the parents or accepting any formal donations members here would like to send me.

    ok first things first

    Tony - cool you have a bike you can pedal finally. But first things first: ditch the seat. I know it may be comfortable and all, but the size is all wrong. I will hook you up. I have a connection over at a store in Arvada. It's an ACE hardware, and they have some kick booty bike parts just laying around collecting dust, and I think this seat here has your name all over it.

    BWAHAHAHA, that's alright. my other saddle wouldnt fit on the post for some reason. Maybe I'll get some cool fabric and stick it on there. Put my mom to work and have her do it, lol.

    How many bikes do you have??

    Here let's name them:
    Trek 820 or whatever it is.
    Giant AC1
    Soul Cycles Titan
    Santa Cruz V-10
    Big Hit Spec/Grom whatever.
    You got the big hit didn't you? I saw another thread about it...
    Holy crud, 5 bikes

    So what's the purpose of each bike?
    V-10 DH/FR
    Titan Urban??

    name the purposes of each bike, I want to know why you have so many (and don't just say it's cause i'm a bikewhore)

    Ended up not getting the grom.

    lol, I dont even have a job, somehow I come across cheap deals or trade other non bike stuff for things.

    V10-DH/Racing
    SC Titan-Urban/Park/DJ (my attempts at it atleast )
    Trek 820-XC but its sitting in pieces in my garage at the moment. Well, pieces being it requires putting the fork/brakes/wheels on for it to be working.
    Giant AC-XC/Trail/FR

    okay, that makes more sense...
    i was thinking that it would be a bit pointless to have the ac and grom both being not super-long travel fs's...
    why didn't you get the grom?

    I didn't get the grom cuz I'm way poor, and the deal for the AC was more of a trade so it financially cost me nothing.

    that's cool, although i wouldn't consider four fairly nice bikes "way poor."
    so what bike are you gonna get next?

    lol. If i get the soul cycles fs frame the AC will become full time XC

    I'm looking at one and/or both. I'm also looking at the 05 ADR Cycles frames but have yet to hear much else from them recently.
