    2006 Yukon just after a thorough scrub and tune up. Mostly stock except for the fork that was brought low by Hamilton Creek and replaced with a spiffy air fork, and the seat which the rails warped to Hades and back on. The fork made it a new bike.

    The back brake is dying a slow and noisy death ATM. Lurking ebay for some Juicy 7s.

    That and maybe a theft of a Trance or XTC frame

    im currently waiting on a new bottom bracket and crank arms from giant they are replacing mine under warranty cause the left arm keep coming out. and i think the fork is jacked up too now. i can nearly push the fork all the way down and its on the stiffest setting now on knob, along with the stiffer springs i got from giant 2 months ago. and the pop lock doesnt hold any more as soon as i let up on the bars the fork comes right back up to the top. gotta have that checked out soon too.

    Rear-BB5, replaced by Giant when the stock IO broke.
    Front-BB7

    I like the set-up it gets the job done really well. I'll maybe get a BB7 on the rear as well, but for now I'm happy with the current set-up.A set of BB7's goes for about 45-50/wheel so it's a good deal (read the reviews). Since those pics were taken I went clipless and love it...you should try it too. I think that this should have been my first upgrade!!!

    Well I had this...
    07 Alias upgraded & '08 STP customised


    Have since gone to this (specced STP more towards XC - Tora from Alias changed to 120mm travel, wheels etc transferred over).




    This will now be an XC / Trail bike and I'm selling off un-needed parts from the Alias (frame etc) to fund a DH bike build (Oragne 222) sorry Giant!

    Mines nothin special, stock 03 Rainier, Fire X cranks, Snafu platform pedals, Avid BB7's with AD3 levers, not sure what the wheels are, but they made up for that weight by stocking Hutchinson Mosquitoes. I dropped the Axel fork from 80-100MM. Not sure if I put it back together wrong or not, but it's ALOT stiffer. Which is good, because I weigh 225. I was having trouble bringing up the nose on climbs, so I'm hoping with the longer travel fork, and the inverted stem this will keep the nose planted.

    I broke my Alunimun 07 Boulder's Frame. Steel is real. Luckily I have an STP waiting for me in the garage.

    Amen. If my Trek had disc mounts, I'd never touch the Giant.

    '08 20" XTC 2 with a few well researched upgrades:

    Tora 318 Air
    Fire XC Pros - no more pinch flats!
    Easton lo-rise bar w/ Ourys
    BBG Bashguard

    This bike took me to lots of places in the mountains I never would have seen otherwise.



    It has been very good to me but I've got my eye on either a FS XC bike or steel 29er for 2009.
