    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.

    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.

    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%..)
