    My 2005 Beauty.

    Don't think I'll go to an anthem until they are carbon. This nrs is just under 23lbs and is awesome for xc racing.

    ... and if we just ... great thread--now to get out the camera...

    Excellent thread. I have been meaning to break out the camera & take some pix's of mine. My wife kids me about the time I spend on my bike -- kind of reminds of a custom tag I saw on a nicing looking Subura WRX -- "OTHRWOM'N".

    Anyway, I started with a used hard-tail just over 2 years ago to see if I would like to MTB. Well, I proceeded to upgrade most every component over the following 1.5 years, primarily buying used parts off of ebay. In March 2005, I finally picked up a '02 NRS frame that came with a Cane Creek Cloud 9 shock and the 4.5" rocker arms ;-) Of course the frame was disc only, so I had to upgrade my wheelset too...

    Here's the build that I have ended up with:
    - '02 NRS 20.5" frame (red frame with some black) w/ Cane Creek Cloud 9 & 4.5" rockers
    - K2 - Noleen Mega-Air Shock (100 mm)
    - CrossMax XL (primary) / Shimano WH-M959 (secondary) wheelsets
    - XT 760 cassette (11-34) / XTR 953 cassette
    - SRAM 9.0 Half-pipe shifters
    - X.9 Rear Der, XTR 960 Frt Der, SRAM PC-99 chain
    - RaceFace Next LP cranks (carbon w/ red that matches the frame ;-) w/ UN-73 BB
    - RaceFace rings (46-34-24)
    - PD-M737 pedals
    - Maxm MX-6 carbon 1.5" riser handle bars
    - Avid Mechanical disk brakes (165mm rotors) w/ Avid SD-7 levers
    - WTB Rocket Laser Ti seat and carbon seat post (no name from icycleusa.com)

    About the only things that I have not replaced are the stem and the headset cap (it still says Trek ;-) It is fun to ride and is most appreciated on some of the rooted & rutted single track. Anyway, I need to get some pix's of it and wish I already had them. I did manage to do an endo onto the pavement a couple of weeks ago, and cracked the plastic gear indicators on the shifters -- I was lucky that was all I cracked--ouch

    I have not been able to weigh it but I am curious to know its weight. As I mentioned, only a few of the parts were purchased new at retail prices (cassette, chain, shifters, rear der). Most of the items came from individuals or ediscount.com. Including the 2nd wheelset, I have about $1350 in the bike (plus a few extra $$'s for cables, etc.). For most of the items, I figured out what I wanted by reading the mtbr forums & reviews, watched the prices on ebay, and then waited for a good deal. I got the WH-M959 wheelset (not to be mixed up with the really sweet WH-M965) w/ M953 cassette for an incredible deal off ebay--you can tell that chain had come off the cassette on the rear wheel but its not bad enough to merit replacing any of the spokes--they make a great 'back-up' setup ;-) They are not the lightest wheels (1900g-2000g) but the XTR hubs work well. I keep trail tires on the Crossmax XL's and less agressive / road tires on the WH-M959's.

    When I upgraded the hardtail to a 9-spd, I had a local shop do it. When I got the NRS frame, I borrowed a friend's bike tool set and built out the bike myself. Lots of fun.

    Anyway, sorry about writing the book -- you just got me started. Pix's to follow...

    Guess I should also mention that I've been racing NRS's for almost 4 years. I had a 2002 NRS 1 for 2 years until the composite version was released and bought the 2004 NRS Air. I love this bike and probably have close to 100 races in those 4 years on the NRS. Needless to say I'm also looking forward to trying out Giants new design, I'm even willing to go non-composite for a year

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! losing steam

    let's get some more pics up, specially now that the nrs is being replaced by the anthem, soon the nrs will be a distant memory in the history of xc mtn bikes.

    Here's my baby

    In all her glory, resting in the sweet singletrack. Dunno what to say 'bout her...after years of riding a HT, the NRS is a freaking rocket. Climbs better than my buddies "fully active" Stumpy FSR, and for the last two months has taken a 220lb beating and never wavered.

    BTW, how do I upload a bigger pic? When I try, it says the file size is limited to 195kb, and when I edit the pic to 195ish, it is so small....

    Usually I just use image shack to host the image if it is too big rather than saving a smaller file.

    and then use the [img] tags to post it on the forum. You can just copy and paste the format from imageshack.

    Lack of smaller pic...

    http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=4/11217204938.jpg&s=x2

    I have another picture somewhere and a few action shots but cant seem to locate them.
    One of my friends recently died of a coke overdose and it really got me thinking, "damn, maybe I should start drinking pepsi"

    Nice thread. I have seen the pics Anthem that will replace the NRS next year. I am sure it will perform well, but the NRS is still a cut above many others out there. Here is a shot of my NRS Comp 2 (stk, with exception to Hayes Mag Plus Brakes). Enjoy...

    Guess I have the cheap one of the bunch. Oh well, I'm a poor college student and it rules anyways. And yes, it is kept in a very cluttered room next to my wifes 05 Kona Fire Mountain.

    03 NRS 3 frame
    Marzocchi MX Pro 105
    Panaracer Fire XC 2.1 tires
    Race Face Ride XC crank
    and....you know, other stuff that I don't want to type all out.


    I tell you, this fork has made all the difference in the world compared to the Rock Shox Pilot that came stock on it. I think my next upgrade will be a new seatpost, cause this Titec one is creaking like crazy no matter what I do.

    Long live the NRS!!
