    ok now..meaning if an X1 has upgraded parts as the X7..technically its already an X7?..haha

    X1 Extreme 27.5 Conversion (Frankenbike)
    Here is a project I have been working on just because.....well I had the time and I could. Enjoy;)

    Clearance for the rear wheel is no problem.

    Attachment 875763

    I used a 26" Fox 125R Fork because I already had it and I didn't want to buy a 27.5 fork yet. It has about 3/8" clearance to the tire. It is not recommended as it will pack up with mud and other stuff. It will serve my experimental purposes.

    If there is interest, I can post more data.

    My next bike will be a 27.5.

    Here's my Shift R1 after another round of upgrades. I installed a new Raidon fork and a pair of Brakeco 203 mm rotors for my Hayes Trail Stroker hydraulic brakes. After I pick up some new tires, I'm going to stop upgrading and just focus on riding and developing better technique. It's as good as it's going to be.

    I think I might like this better than my 07 Anthem 0. Its heavily upgraded, and it is so efficient. I a very impressed. I guess my days of riding The Haro Master, and Mirra Flair were a little foresight of the future of Haro.

    Updated my Mary SS a little bit. Specialized bars off a 2014 stumpy comp. Crank Bros Cobalt 11 seatpost. Bontrager evoke saddle. Niner fork.

    Cranks and brakes are next. 23.85# right now.

    My new FLC Comp 29.

    Rode it for the first time this morning to 'break it in' before hitting trails Saturday with friends. Instead I just managed to 'break it'. :p

    Just a flesh wound though. Luckily this happened a half mile from the house after being quite a few miles out on wooded trails. Snapped just crossing the street. :skep:

    I used to break everything in my BMX days and thought I may have mellowed out some...

    Here's my Haro!!

    It's a Subvert HT5 27.5+ bike! So far, It's been a fun ride. Much more nimble than a traditional fat bike, I love how much cushion the "plus" ride gives it- almost like full suspension!!

    Things I've done so far:
    1: Tubeless conversion!! The bike comes with pretty cheap tubes that were HEAVY!!! Throwing in some stems and sealant saved me over a POUND PER WHEEL!!! And of course, I don't have to worry about pinch flats anymore :)

    2: Saddle- I was definitely not a fan of the stock saddle. Luckily, I kept the Specialized Toupe from my old bike. Much more comfortable, and saved more weight.. hahaha!!!

    3: Dropper post- It's has internally routed cables, so I installed a KS-Lev dropper. The bike has a TON of room in the cockpit, so it's nice being able to really use that real-estate with the seat down!

    4: Handlebars- It comes with a fairly heavy Ritchey bar. I installed a Raceface SixC carbon bar. I originally did this for weight and a little more width, but have also noticed that I can feel more feedback from the front end, which was desperately needed with the big tires.

    Issues so far-

    1: The HT5 is the mid-level Subvert. While it doesn't have entry level stuff like the HT3, it still used lots of in-house branded stuff. One item was the Pivit rear hub laced up with the WTB rims. On my very first ride, I was doing some park bench hop-ups, and had to put some pressure through the cranks on some agressive climb-up. There was a sudden "BANG", and then I couldn't freewheel any longer. Disassembly revealed that I broke two out of three Pawls, and cracked the freehub body!!! Haro warrantied the hub, and let me pay a small charge to upgrade to a Shimano XT Hub.

    2: The HT5 comes with an FSA Comet crankset. This was an item I was already looking to upgrade because of chainring compatibility. On my old bike, I had started running an Absolute Black ring, and think a plus bike could really benefit from that technology. NOBODY makes a replacement chainring for the FSA cranks. On my third long distance ride, I ran into an issue 10 miles from the car. The Crank bolt on the non-drive side started working loose. Normally not a problem, but it takes a 10mm hex wrench to tighten it up!! I was able to limp it about halfway back before it fell off completely, then I did some "scooting" and one footed pedaling to go the rest of the way. Reading online, this is a common problem, and one that FSA has addressed by including thread-locker with their new cranksets!! This is the first time I've felt the need to put lock-tite on a crankbolt, but I assure you that's going to happen when the new bolt shows up.

    Other than those two issues, the bike so far has been a terrific ride, and I plan on building a set of 29" wheels to swap out for long distance stuff!!!!

    This is my 98 Haro MX3, bought on CL for $275. The AL Y-bike and DH Judy XL was too much for me to pass up.
    After the rear shock came apart, I installed a Fox air shock and the plush was so huge I had to do more upgrades- that meant disc. Built Sun-Ringle EQ31 on Fastace 4-bearing hubs, found a Saint integrated shifter setup, changed the gear to 2x9 with a XT crank off my '04 Stumpy. While I was at it, the Joplin dropper without remote had to happen. Not like it gets moved around a lot.
    Riding this thing is a hoot. The 2.1 Slant Six tires are nicely pushed out by the wide rims, the disc brakes (180-180) have plenty of power, and she's super plush, point and shoot. I get used to the shifters immediately.
    This one goes to Copper Harbor, MI for the flow trails.

    Works great. 22.5-23lbs if I remember correctly. It's crazy light compared to my full suspension bike. This bike is going to find a new home in Houston, TX come Christmas time. A friend of mine is wanting to get into mountain biking.
