    I really like the lines on that bike, it looks like its hauling ass just sitting still. Those rubber queens are great all around tires, give em a go before you spend lots of cash on new rubber.

    My new 27.5" Enduro rig I was going to sell it(due to injury over the winter) But I may just keep it now that I am healing up...It really needs a black fork and my Formula brakes put back on it!

    No need to spend any cash. I allready had the HansDampf tires laying around at home :) The rubberqueens are now coming to use on another bike :thumbsup:

    How much suspension is everyone using in enduro/super-d racing?

    This is my Stumpjumper Elite. I've had it a few years and have slowly built it how I want it. Haven't raced an enduro but plan to this summer. Thinking of trying a 1x10 setup this year. I will pedal and or push my bike uphill to ride it back down.:D

    You will typically see anywhere from 4 to 7 inches of travel depending on the course. But the majority of bikes that I've seen sit around 5 to 6 inches.

    Most of the courses I have rode (so far) are not super rough aggressive DH style so 150mm to 160mm works great. I rode another brand last year(160mm) but I am going to ride my 27.5" converted Butcher this year its 150mm rear and 160mm up front

    Canyon Strive with 160mm travel front and rear. Fun machine for lift days at Vail Mtn, a few enduro events, and some longer backcountry rides.

    I have mixed feelings about my hans damps. On my bike with a 68 degree headangle they are the cats meow I love them to death. That said for some reason on my 66 degree headangle GT they tend to feel a bit more round and the "edge" is not quite as strong as I like. I think it is because the two different bikes corner different and with the slacker head angle the bike needs to be leaned over and more weight pushed on the front where I feel the more square tires do better. Could be just me, but check back with me in a bit about them when I have more ride time with them on this bike.

    Setup is HD/RS Lyrik 170/XX1

    Waiting for Easton to finish their XX1 freehub so that is why I am currently running an AL rear wheel. My Monarch RC3 is at Push for a refresh so that is why I am running the RP23 which is meh I have two rides on the Lyrik now and am starting to get it feeling really nice. XX1 is about 3 weeks in and I like it a lot.

    Lol it was great. Bottle was on there for race day and I just screwed the cap off and drank it that way. No reason to carry my Camelback for two 6 minute runs.

    Pivot Firebird with XT build (large)
    close to 6.7" travel front and rear
    Weighs just over 31lb with pedals
    Absolute murderer going down and still flys uphill somehow.

    I can't wait to race enduro this year. It's still a long ways off and I can't stop thinking about it. Signed up for 3 of the Big Mountain Enduro so far.

    My Maverick ML8. Still one of my most favorite rigs. Ethan Franklin is still around to tune the suspension so it's ridding better than ever. 31 pounds, XT 3x10 kit, Mavic 819 wheels, Maverick dropper post, trying out a slightly taller handlebar now. Should be able to hit up 2 or 3 of the Big Mountain Enduro series races this year.

    I have these so far:

    X9 crank w/36t Bling Ring
    XO rear d/shifter

    Need to buy:

    2010 trek scratch 7 coil that i converted to air. I put a 2012 lyrik rc2dh fork set at 170 to match the frame and a monarch plus for the rear which should work awesome. I upgraded everything to x9 components. I installed a compand post from specialized on this bike but I had to buy a shim from 30.9 to 31.6 which worked good. I want to try to convert it to a 650B bike but dont think there is enough room with the new lyrik fork. Its a little on the porky side(35.5 lbs) but should be a fun bike going down the hills :)
