Seeing as I can't post the pics here is a link to my album of my finished custom build..
Took it out for her maiden voyage, and so far it's everything I hoped it would be. Quiet, fast, quick solid shifting, grips like glue and soaks up bumps great.

they say its always better to get a smaller size, cuz u can always adjust the seat post and a longer stem for ur size. besides a smaller bike is more tossable.
sorry for the same comment. i dont know how to delete comments

I just bought a Fuji Thrill. I don't know what year it is, I suspect early-mid 1990s, it's a rigid and it's bright neon green (hey, $50...). It's a 15" frame, which is pushing it a bit for me, but I agree with Gocat - throwing it around for the first time tonight was fun. However I have to extend the seat way high. I want to get a longer seatpost - does anyone know what diameter I need for this bike?
Just got a 2012 2.0 outland. $1500.... Brand new. I got two actually, one for my son too. They are awesome. Stock brake pads sucked though.
Oh, I'll post pics when I can!
Nice mate I have the same bike, just ordered the 2012 RS Recons also 750mm wide Funn bars and raceface 60mm stem. Hows it go with the upgrades? Do you know what it weighs now?

Here's my 08 (I think) Nevada, this bike has over 4000 miles on it, and it sat unridden for a year after I bought my 29r.
I recently put on the new Surly fork, and some new tires. I'm thinking about going with some sort of drop bars on it, I just got to gather the stuff I need to do it.
Well, I wanted to post a pic, but getting this lame message

:madman: Funny, since I've posted in the Rockhopper thread. Nice.:skep:
ugh. This was not in response to your bike^^^^
Just me not being able to post my pic.
:skep:There are several posts missing since I posted my pic.:skep:
So I had the wheels off my 29r, and thought...
Here's reference shot of the 26" wheel.
It raised raised the top of the stem about 1.25", but the ride was good. You can definitely feel the slowness of the turning response, and the whole feel of it while turning was kind of weird.:skep:
It did obviously smooth out the harshness of my rigid fork, and you can't deny it makes the front of the bike look cool, but overall I'm not sure if it's something I'd do long term.
nice bike, really love it
I have a 2007 Thrill LT 1.0 coming any day now. The front shock (Rockshox Pike) and rear shock (Rockshox Pearl) from what ive seen are getting horrible reviews. Are they true? And if so,what would be good upgrades? I would like to stay around 400$ for front and 250-300 for rear. Any help would be awesome! Thanks!
Last weekend we stopped at a LBS and picked out a new bike for my wife - a Fuji Nevada 1.7. She wanted the white color so that had to be ordered. When we went there to pick up her bike today she gave me the OK to get one myself. I got the black one since I'm not too picky on colors. Just got home and can't wait to get out and ride these (if the weather ever dries up).
This is from yesterday - our first time out on real MTB trails with these bikes. They did fine on the rough trails. Some ghost shifting but hopefully that can be adjusted.
I acquired my first new bike since I was a young one about a week ago. A 2013 Fuji Nevada 29 1.5. I'm really loving this bike! I just don't know what to like pedals wise and stuff. also hi peoples! first post here 😊
