    In a word: Smoooove.
    The carbon just feels like it's erasing all of the little stuff that gets through on a short-travel bike. Just smoothness all over the place.
    Sweet on the Two2One! I, horribly, haven't been able to ride mine, knee surgery about 5 weeks ago, I can barely get in an hour on the road...

    Current bike is a basically stock 2002 Rainier with the exception of a Geax Sturdy rear tyre and a Ritchey Comp Rizer bar but it is soon to be replaced with a NRS which I will definitely post pictures and specs of once it is built (HURRY UP USPS)

    Here's mine..

    bad picture but what the hell. I replaced the SID shock with a CC AD12 as well - amazing difference, highly recommend. Think I'm selling it though and getting something a little beefier for my 200lb a$$. It has served well for the past two years though.

    Here's mine... just arrived. It's an AC Air, but I will either be putting a Fox or a Romic on it pretty soon. Maybe I'll post again when it's built. Meanwhile I've been making sure I can starddle it effectively.

    Thanks! I got it off Ebay. It's actually a 2002 model, but apparently was put together and then taken back apart and sold as a frame. The color is called "copper/silver". The guy I got it from said it was his last one, but you might check it out anyway... his Ebay user name is "bikeframes". I got the fork today also, so hopefully it will be together before too long. Too bad it's only 5 degrees here right now.

    That frame demands some.."highlights"

    Note the capbolt used to secure the alum pivot pin. Last year Cambria had these generic ti vbrake boss cap bolts for like a $1 a piece. Do great replacing those unsightly steel ones. Or, one can a smaller reg ti bolt and ano washer. Ti shockbolts and lower flange lock nut...which those 2 longass bolts and nut are $$. Cool tho.

    Yes, I know..I sometimes have too much time on hands.

    Thanks alot for the pics. Saved them all to my HD for future frame lust action and general reference beta. Bet since the 04 alum frame appears to be the same as last years...andf if so, that smaller and compact(read prob lighter then the 02-03's)rear triangle should retro the earlier frames. I don't think Giant sells them seperate, at least the years pror.

    Kinda dirty from yesterdays ride. Sorry..

    Frames are actually different than last year, the pivot locations have been changed slightly to work better with the new shock, so '04 frames are not compatible with the older models.

    Nice frame. I just received my small a couple of week ago. Weigh? 2435g without water bottle bolts, stem, and canti studs.

    I was a bit disappointed with the weight. I expected it to be closer to the 2250g mark even with the heavier rear shock.

    That Carbon is pure lust....

    Sweet ride man!!! Would post a pic of mine but it is muddy as heck sitting in an iced over rear of a camper shell covered pickup truck outside.

    Are there trails still up in Indy? I grew up there, and the mountian biking around there was kind of sad. Can't really compare it to here in NC though as it would not be fair.

    Anyways thanks for sharing. That rig would make on heck of a race bike if you trick it out right.

    What is the Carbon NRS retailing for? What's the best deal so far?

    Actually biking in the Indy area is quite good, but we make the usual runs to Pisgah NC every month or so during the winter. Should get back down in the next couple of weeks.
    Not sure what the retail on the NRS Air Frameset is, we have a sponsorship with Giant for 2004 and got our pricing direct.
    I will post a buildup when all of my parts arrive but it is going to rock. Marta SL brakes, F80X fork, SRAM XO, Hugi 240's/DT/Sun DS1, Race Face Deus Cranks, Time Titan XS pedals.
    Should come in a tick under 24 pounds without doing anything crazy.

    Wasn't going to do this yet but what the hell!!
    My NRS frame turned up in the mail today. It is not new but who cares. It would not have been new after one ride.
    20.5"
    Race Face Deus Stem
    Race Face XY seatpost
    Truvativ Team Stylo cranks
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    Easton EC90 handlebar
    Avid Mechanical disks
    Avid Speed Dial Ultimate levers
    XTR shifters, front & rear derailleur
    Time ATAC pedals
    Geax Sturdy tyres
    Rock Shox Duke XC fork
    So far she is 3/4 finished but should be complete by this time tomorrow (work commitments allowing).
    Many thanks to chuckc1971 for all of his help in getting it to me in Australia from Kentucky.
    Will post some better pics once she is complete.

    Duck
    Yeah Duck.
    It took me a while to find the bike but when I did he also had some sweet parts that he was able to offer on top. Between chuckc1971 and the guys in my club I was able to source basically everything there second hand (which did not worry me as it IS a second hand bike) with the exception of the saddle, handlebar, brakes and some minor hardware like cables and tubes.
    It is summer here and I cannot wait to get out on her and show an expatriot American some red Aussie dirt.
    24 hour event coming up in April for her along with a MTB orienteering event in 2 weeks. She and I will be doing some miles both outdoor and on the trainer to get me fit for these and plenty of other events this year.
    Do you know what the difference between the normal NRS and the Pro Series. I know the Pro Series has the 2 rear travel settings but is there any other difference. Frame on this one is made of Superlight 6000 series aluminium. Is that the same on all NRS's!!!

    Same frame short the 2 position rockers. The 2.5" travel mode was for heavier riders so the psi's could be more managable regarding the rear sid. Read that anyway. Same frame material with all the alum verions. Only some do not have v-boss mnts, and of course the various diff for each model year otherwise.
    Hey, that orienteering thing sounds cool as hell. I do alot of solo off trail backpacking, and can appriciate that kinda stuff.

    Just like you said..once they get dirty once..they're all a "used bike" from then on.

    Enjoy..I sure do.

    A little late-but a GIANT

    Here is my Giant 2001 MCM Team. Not as pretty as the new carbons but the Kevlar Composite is stiff as hell. I built it from the frame up-as picture it weighs around 20.45 lbs. Hope you enjoy.

    My little BLUE NRS

    Here is my NRS3. It's 2002 model distributed in the Philippines. It was already upgraded to the following set-up:

    Shimano Deore Drivetrain
    Marzocchi Z4 front shocks
    Avid Mech Disc brakes
    Thomson Stem and Seatpost
    Element 24-blade wheelset

    I use it mainly for trailriding.

    Nice sp00kme.
    About time you posted a picture of that rig. I have been waiting.
    Looks like you and me are just about twins except I got the pretty yellow bits on mine.
    What is the fork that you have??
