    Post your Hardtail

    This thread is specifically for people who have normal Hardtails. Although All-Mountain hardtails are allowed here, they have their own thread, and they do not alloy normal XC hardtails. This means that this thread is for XC hardtails (63mm-120mm). Bikes with 120mm-180mm of travel can use the All-Mountain Hardtail thread.
    So, I will start.

    Cannondale xx '93 (?), $100 off Craigslist..missing seatpost/seat. Front suspension is soft, probably needs rebuilding. Came up with high-end downhill disc-compatible front-wheel (& expensive tire). Swapped in a front-wheel, swapped out generic rear-wheel with XT rear-wheel, 7 speed cassette. Swapped out 7-speed grip shifters for another 7-speed grip shifter (front 3 speed shifter left alone)

    polished Cantilever brakes & crank

    Here is my 2003 KHS Alite 4000. I don't think I have ever seen another on the trails.

    Bought the frame from Jenson back in 2003 and built up with XT components.

    First picture was with old Judy and second is after I replaced the fork a few months back.

    '13 Specialized Rockhopper
    Fox 32 Float 29 FIT RLC Kashima Fork
    XT Rear Derailleur, 1x9 gearing, 32T ring w/ Raceface bash and NGear Jump Stop
    SLX Shifters
    SLX Brakes
    Xpedo XMX13 Pedals
    2.4" Ardent in the front
    2.1" Ignitor in the back (not pictured)

    Will be getting a new wheelset with Hopes Pro2 Evo hubs and Stans Arch EX rims very soon, then an HG61 12-36 cassette and Raceface aluminum 32T ring. I think the cranks may get replaced at the same time as the cassette/ring as well.

    ^ Nice Rockhopper. I plan to put a Fox Float on my Cobia (120mm), but I am thinking about converting to XX1.

    Oh, the lighting made the Reba look like a Recon. That piece of information makes that bike cooler.

    1998 Trek 7000zx

    Only thing stock remaining is the Deore XT 8spd rear derailleur. Everything else on the drivetrain was upgraded with 8spd XT.
    XT brakes,
    Sun Ringle ZuZu pedals,
    Cane Creek S2 headset,
    Ritchey Pro stem,
    Easton EC70 bars and seat post,
    WTB SST.98 saddle,
    Mavic X717 wheels with XT hubs,
    Ergon grips(not in picture),
    1999 SID SL fork,
    Control Tech titanium skewers.

    I think that covers the details...

    I just purchased a Shimano XT Shadow Plus 10 speed derailleur, Shimano Zee Shifters, and a single gear Shimano Zee crank. I am converting to 1x10. If the photos are up by the time my order comes in, I will post pics.

    Waiting on a headset, and seat post. But otherwise I'll just swapping over parts over from the five-o. I'm most likely going to save the kona frame and in the future build some light wheels, 10x1, sub 25#... basically a loaner bike.

    Here was the five-o before strip down.

    I've been impressed with my first 29'er, a Raleigh XXIX+G. It doesn't win style points, but rides great. I ride the same trails that I used ride on my Trek Remedy, just not as fast downhill obviously.

    All stock except for the foam grips I swear by on every bike.

    1999 Kona Explosif 853 Steel HT. Rediscovered it last year. I now prefer it over my FS. My next bike will be a HT.

    This is mah hard tail. Jeep Comanche 29er, 6061 aluminum frame, E25 Ground Force 65mm suspension fork (dont laugh, this fork actually kicks arse!), Shimano Tourney Derailleurs (The front one is candid utter crap!! The rear one however is awesome!), Vitesse 29" rims, Vitesse 61mm oversized handlebar, C-Star V-brakes (REAR), crappy front disc brake that I cant find out what the brand is. Shimano SIS rapidfire shifters, Vitesse Crankset. I think this bike is just a good straight up hard tail, I know department store specials usually dont last but this Jeep has lasted a solid year and two months and runs just as good as it did when I bought it!

    If that bike lasts another four years, I will change my opinion of Dept. Store bikes. I am not trying to sound mean to you or dept. stores, but that bike is classified as a "toy", not a means of transport. The fork is weak, and any bike that comes standard with a kickstand is wimpy.

    the 7000zx. Actually, I like every bike on here and some are really my cup of tea. I enjoy new bikes , but nothing rides like my 96 Killer V. Maybe my old a** ought to get some new technology! My FS is 2001 Jekyll. I do have a carbon frame hardtail at the bike shop. I will get it next Tue. Does that count? Cant wait to ride it.

    I'm digging those bar ends. Bar ends make a bike have horns.
    My Cobia will be one of a kind when I am done with it.

    Yeah, I totally understand what youre saying. I do like my Jeep but I am definitely not going to get much more than 4 years out of it. Im only 15 and just getting into the sport so I just needed a solid bike that could last until Ive decided whether Im in on MTBing or not, after a year of riding religiously Im pretty sure Im here to stay in the Mountain Biking Universe The bike I want to get next is the Trek Marlin 29er, I hear those are really nice and solid! It has really promising Shimano and Sram components, there arent any no name cheapo components. I also like the Trek Mamba, it has the Rockshox fork and the Hydro discs

    My Mamba


    My wife's 4300 Disc


    Some minor "comfort" mods have been made to both.
    Gel grips, gel seats, basic light kit on both bikes and both bikes got hybrid tires installed instead of knobies (we ride mostly paved trails/streets right now).

    Man those first few rides were painful. I haven't ridden in over 20 years and the legs, back, wrists, etc... were all letting me know it. The local area is hills so its a lot of work but has helped me get the exercise I really needed. Today we did about 13 miles round trip on a combo paved/gravel trail. Hey, were having fun and thats all that counts right!?

    Nice setup. Why did you decide to go with Suntour as a new fork when you could have bought a RockShox Recon Silver for $225?

    The raidon was only $175. That, and I plan to get into another bike next year. If I had a tapered ht I would have gotten a better fork just figuring whatever bike I get next will be tapered.

    My current hardtail is a 1996 bontrager privateer. This will be my new hardatail an unused 1996 bontrager privateer hardtail. It has 1 1/8" headset so I can put a good fork on her.

    F9 back in action as super cool 26er.
    I just found trails that the Cannondale is better at than the Cobia. And these trails are in my backyard!

    The fork that came with it was originally 100mm with Axle 2 Crown of about 516mm. The X-Fusion Slide RL2 @ 100mm I bought for it has an Axle 2 Crown of 506mm, 10mm shorter. And I hated this fork on this bike at 100mm because it made the front end too steep.

    So I had the Slide's travel adjusted to 120mm which makes the A2C 526mm, only 10mm longer than original fork.

    The end result is fantastic.

    Yea, $235 for the 26". I am looking for a 29er and the cheapest I have found for the Recon Silver is $300.

    Unfortunately that is still more than I want to spend so I am having to consider the XC32, possibly XC32 Solo Air if I can find one of those. I want to be closer to the $200 price point. $225 got me real intrigued...
