    It was edited. At first I thought it was a Reba, but on a second look I realized it was a Manitou.

    RS forks don't have the bridge on the backside of the fork...that's a Manitou thing.

    At first I thought he had the fork on backwards, then I looked again and saw the odd shaped crown and realized it was a Manitou.

    very true. It's pretty much impossible to run a fork backward these days on nice bikes, but people unfamiliar with the sport still assume

    What is with the SRAM brake rotors?
    Were the stock hubs centerlock?

    The Cobia and X-Caliber (2013) were replaced by the Superfly.
    Not so....

    The Superfly replaced the Paragon (which is the top-line offering for TREK hardtails) they have and Alpha-Platinum-Alpha frame which is better made and stiffer.

    They still have the X-cal lineup (that has the Alpha-Goldl frame.) The cobia was below the x-cal line (and above the mamba, the rock bottom 29er series...)

    -----------------The Stache is new as of last year...

    For Fully's the Fuel EX 29er has replaced the Rumblefish....

    2013 Stumpjumper Comp HT. This bike is still all stock. It replaced a Carve that was stolen out of my garage. This bike only has about 300 miles on it right now as I tend to ride my newer Stumpjumper FSR more often.

    I'm really proud of us all. This thread could have divulged into tons of pics of chick's with "hard tails". But it's stayed awesome! Maybe HT riders are more mature or something...?

    Here is mine, six weeks old and it is a blast to ride. It compliments my FS bike very well.

    Whenever I feel like hammering I take this out. As good as my RM element is, it still feels like a wet noodle!

    Didn't realize how much I missed riding a hardtail.

    I replaced a 690mm Bontrager Bar with a 725mm Raceface Evolve bar.
    I still don't know how much of a difference it will make.

    Tossing a sus fork on that will make it ride funky. Very, very different Axle to crown measurements. Review on the slide fork?

    But for 2014, the current X-Cal line has replaced the Wahoo (X-Cal 5), Marlin (X-Cal 7), Mamba (X-Cal 8), and Cobia (X-Cal 9). The Superfly 5 has replaced the 2013 X-Caliber.
    Not quite correct (but close...)

    All the X-Cals ONLY have the Alpha-Gold-Alpha frame.. They are just now offering a 'lower price point' Superfly (still has Alpha-Platinum-Alpha frame, BUT it has the Recon fork)-----that is a lower level offering (in the past) that was NEVER seen on the Superfly (or Paragon before that..)

    Even the 2014 X-cal '9' (even with the better fork still ONLY has the Alpha-Gold frame..)

    So the Superfly 5 is still a real Superfly (only with the cheaper fork..)

    p.s. The 2013 XCal had the 'better fork' on it (REBA)----but even the 2014 'top of the line' X-Cal '9' has this newer fork now (not a REBA, but better than the Recon)---called the xc something (that is a new OEM offering for TREK I see)-----

    ---And I could go on about the lower offerings and how they differed (but you get the gist...)----

    Remember I have TREK in my signature (so I have to know my stuff 110%..)

    Hi everyone, I'm still new around here but thought I'd add to this ongoing thread.

    Here's my Haro Flightline 16" with several upgrades.


    Wife's Specialized Myka- craigslist find! Already upgraded to new riser bars, stem and hydraulic brakes.

    I was talking about price ranges and component spec.
    Yes, the Superfly has the Alpha platinum alloy frame, but it is in the price bracket and component spec of an X-Caliber (2013), so it has replaced it. There is no argument there. Cobia has the Alpha gold alloy frame, like the new X-Cal, and it has the same component spec level.
    XC32 Soloair is NOT better than Recon, but it is RockShox's newest addition. (Just below the 30 Gold). The XC forks are the cheapest, then Recon Silver, then 30 Gold, then Recon Gold, then Reba, then SID (for XC forks at least).
    You see, I don't have a single brand name in my signature because I know most bike brands and component brands 99%.

    What does having TREK in your signature have to do with anything?

    Also, just going off the website, the highest level X-Cal (Simply X-Caliber) has a Reba RL. Surely someone with TREK in their signature would have known this. :P

    XC Series has been out for awhile and is the lowest level RS fork offered, and is a step or two below the Recon - if you account for the 30 Gold that RS released in the last year.

    The red/black/white X-Cal is no longer in production. The same goes for the Rig.

    I find this extremely false, since most of your advice is crap. You can read off the internet all you want, but in the end experience prevails.

    Some shops may be able to order a left over Rig or X-Cal, but availability will be limited.
    The X-Cal (2013) is not in the dealer book for 2014. I know because I have one.
    The Rig is, so the dealer may be able to order them.

    No. They are not Rohirrim.
    The Elf (archer) is Legolas of the Northern Realm, and the other is Aragorn, heir of Gondor.

    They fight against Isengard in the second movie, and in the third, they charge the orcs on the Pelennor fields before Minas Tirith of Gondor.

    I DID know (that is why I made that statement!) and that is why I say 110% (I have to throw that extra 10% in there.... since I use TREK in my Signature...)

    also here is the 'new, updated, always been for the past 6 months website--with the Top of the line Xcal with that XC rock shox fork... NOT THE REBA... you were looking (you must have been remembering 2013 website pics....)

    You linked the old website, it still has the X-Cal. :P

    X-Caliber - Trek Bicycle

    No remembering here. I dont care for Treks and was just going off the website to see which fork you were talking about when I came across the X-Cal.

    All things considered, I'm really impressed with this bike. In the running for the best 29er geometry I've tried. I ride pretty aggressively, and this frame loves it. Just wish I had a 2x or 1x drivetrain.

    Kind of funny to see the chain on the big ring. I'd been playing around with the front derailleur before these were taken. For some reason can't get that last picture to rotate correctly, sorry.
    By far my favorite bike in this thread! so far...

    I thought the same thing before riding it. It doesn't flex, it's plush, it's adjustable, it's light, and it works like it's supposed to. I feel just as confident on a lefty as something more traditional. You realize how good it is when you lock the front wheel and bounce/shove/wiggle and see how solid and slop-free it is.

    I have no problem riding without hands, even around corners, for miles. The bike doesn't lean/tilt/steer any differently than a normal bike, and feels the same in the air as far as I can tell.

    That said, it was weird to get used to the feeling and appearance of being supported on one side, and everyone comments on it. Once you get past that, while looking down the trail, it performs admirably.

    Maybe mine has to do with my cable routing. I think that's why I can't ride one handed. The cables pull a bit to one side.

    Wheels are great... if you happen to find or keep finding play in the wheels/hubs, replace the QR skewers with something better.
