    Not a bad ride. The Guitars in the background don't look bad either, what kind are they?

    Thanks. The guitars are Ovation Celebrity cc 058 and an Epiphone DOt Studio that I bought to rebuild the internals, but never got around to it.

    Do you feel like the 318 tora was a big upgrade from the suntour fork? Does the bike handle better through rough stuff? Im thinking about getting one for my 08 yukon, i just dont want to drop the money until im sure its worth it.

    Lud3- I love my Tora 318 so much better then the stock shocks!..Well worth the change!..I just got back from North Carolina and biked in Tsali did about 15miles one day and the other day did about 8miles the shocks made such a smoother ride then the stock shocks. I'm very happy with them. I'm able to land jumps without killing my hands and able to ride over rocks a lot easyer.

    My bike is called B-rod, that's short for Bike Rodriguez. ...

    B-rod has a nice paint job. She is an Australian XTC 2, that's why she has different hardware to what might be expecxted from other XTC 2s. Her full specs are ... http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-AU/...in/2335/32061/





    She also has a Giant screem ... which is a touch juicy. Sheer ecstacy.





    She is nicely fitted out and comes in at 11.5kg.

    Warren.

    Yeah this is a 04.5' really. It came with a Manitou Skareb elite fork and the original color was a blue, chrome and white paint scheme.

    Thanks for the comment!

    this is my first post here, coming over from bikeforums. i have a Giant Rincon that i picked up for cheap. I asked a lot of questions, and now i have a fully functional bike. here are some before (when i got it) and afters (now).

    Before:


    "In Progress":


    After:


    it's not a high end bike, but it does what i need. i do plan to step up a bit though, as i get more used to trail riding. so far, i love it! your thoughts (good or bad) are welcome. what can i make better or change?

    Nice first build. My big recommendation would be to drop that stem if you plan on riding anything more than groomed trails at the city park. Find some decent riser bars if you can't get comfortable after it's dropped, but that stem is pretty high for off-road use. I've had a quill stem fail on me before, and it hurts. Other than that, good job, and have fun.

    My XTC singlespeed conversion...

    This is my SS conversion of a 2005 or 2006 XTC. Can't remeber which. It's obviously also been powdercoated. What do you guys think?

    Nice SS. Looks like the backsweep might be a bit awkward for trail use tho. Is is more of a cruiser, or do you actually huck it a bit?

    Thanks. It's my multipurpose bike. I use it for my commute and hit the trails when I have spare time. The bars work fine for my style of riding, but I don't know how strong they are, hopefully they will hold up.

    I wasn't even thinking strength so much as slamming the bar with a knee or thigh. I'm thinking it would make commuting and easier trails real comfy tho. I may have to look into something like that.

    Looks a lot like my rincon....



    New Tora 318 on Craigslist: great $100 spent.

    I might get a single bb7 for the front and stick on a Deore shifter I have lying around to go with it.

    Here is my completely stock 2008 Giant Yukon.

    I should get around to changing the seat and grips soon.

    That can wait until I find a good 2007 Giant STP for sale.



    I know that I probably shouldn't have laid it down like that.

    The laying down isn't the problem, the bike can take it. It's the cross-chaining you need to work on

    My brand new Talon 0 2010

    Hello and first post

    Brand new Talon 0 2010 model out of the box - First ride today and I'm already tired of the Giant mineral brakes, very weak and hard to adjust for drag.

    Sorry guys, but I'm going to write a litte danish
    Fin cykel du har fået dig der. Giv lige bremserne en chance, klodser og skiver skal lige slides til. To andre råd: 1) Se at få sat nogle klik pedaler på, det er et must! 2) Flyt evt. en afstandsklods eller to op på oven på din frempind, så dit styr kommer lidt længere ned. Det vil give dig bedre køreegenskaber. En god tommelfinger regl er, at saddel skal være lidt højere end det højeste punkt på styret. 0-5 cm alt efter preference. - Kan være du vidste det i forvejen, men nu ved du der i hvertfald.

    Sorry guys, now I do have to make a small reply i danish as well

    Takker for tippet, den er dog sat op til min hustru som ikke er så meget til at "stå" på styret. Hun bruger den ikke til noget ekstremt men når jeg kører på den, bliver sadlen løftet ca. 6 cm. og så passer det
    Jeg selv kører normalt på en Specialized Enduro SL og det virker bare.

    Mvh

    My '08 STP 0, well custom spec now pretty much.
    Recently serviced the Tora (318 air) lowered it down to 80mm and finally cut the steerer down proper. Since I've aquired a DH bike this one doesn't get used a great deal, it will more so once I build myself some sort of track at home!

    This is a shot from today....



    I did have it up for sale, now after showing it some love I'm glad it didn't sell!

    I would love a sun rhynolite on the front again (that's on my DH bike now) and a maxle fork like an Argyle would be nice but my riding ability doesn't really warrant it anyway, I sold the Pike I had on it to fund my DH bike.

    Here is my 05 STP 1.

    A couple of pics of it mostly stock, and muddy, after riding some trails in N Carolina after snow had melted.




    Then here is a pic of it after I put it on a bit of a diet.



    Upgrades include..
    Forte Dartmoor folding tires
    Thomson post (not pictured)
    Oddyssey bmx seat
    Easton Monkey Bars
    ODI lock-on grips
    I removed the front brake, and I have the bmx pads because I have raced it in cruiser class.

    And an update, this is about it apart from maybe changing the saddle back to a WTB Laser V

    Just got finished building my 08' XTC Alliance. Got it brand new still in the box for a great deal. A few upgrades and here it is. 23.4 pounds, nothing to write home about but good enough for as slow of a racer as I am.

    Hello,

    Very nice bike... Just being curious, did you have to file the ends of your Clavicula to fit in the Octaramp 30?

    Thanks

    I'm considering buying a 2010 Giant XTC Advanced SL frame.

    Does anyone know if the Continental Race King Supersonic 2.2 tires would fit well on the rear?

    From the pics I've seen with the stock 2.0 tires, it looks like it might be a snug fit.

    My LBS had a 2010 and a 2007-08 Yukon in stock. I just purchased the 08. Love that frame! Seems like Giant changed the design to save $$$

    Guess it's my turn...

    Here are a couple shots of my '09 XTC1. A couple of them have appeared in other threads, but eh... it's rainy today and I can't go riding, so here we are.

    Only upgrades worth noting are the Recon 351 fork, Mavic 717 hoops, big, fat 2.4 WTB moto raptors, and premium Brown County mud splatters.

    Ran it with my B17 for a while, but the nose got to feeling a might too pointy on steep climbs:

    The Recon really brought the bike to life for me. It's a HUGE step up from the Marz 22 that came on my bike (and yours too, presumably), which felt like a pogo stick. Jenson had a bunch of cheap oem Recons with cut steerer tubes for a while -- if you're interested, you might want to see if they still have 'em.

    I ran it at the full 130mm when I first put it on the XTC, but at that length the bike handled like crap, even on descents. The handling improved by leaps and bounds once I got some sense and lowered it down. I don't think the XTC likes to have much more than 100mm of travel; right now mine's set at about 110mm (which lowers to 100 as soon as I get on the bike), and that seems to be it's sweet spot, for me anyway.

    Hi, Thanks for the info.Yea, I have been kicking the fork issue around. I've kinda narrowed it down to a Tora 318,but I would like to TRY and justify spending the extra $ on the Recon to the Wife! HA, HA.

    Well the latest is that I've gone SS (again) and Rigid as well...


    Kind of inspired to do so after getting a BMX and the fact that I don't ride that much nor have that much riding talent. Just a bike to potter around on and dream of dirt jumping and other stuff that may or may not ever come to be.

    Here is my latest hardtail build. It got the leftovers from my other bikes which were sold or demoted. I did buy a few new things to go with this new frame such as brakes and a fork. The old Sette hardtail got demoted to run around town with a child seat on it.

    It is a 2010 XTC FR frame - 16 inch size. Besides the logos it is brushed aluminum. The geometry, weight, and finish are what sold me. It has a 70.5 HA and 73 SA. However, that spec is with a 100mm fork. I like a bit slacker angle for descending, so I put a 120mm on it. So it is slacker by 1 degree in angles. I then just run the seat 10mm forwards past SA center and I still retain the pedaling position I prefer. It climbs very easily and descends as fast I'm willing to hang it out!
