    Good job! Post pictures of your hollowpoints (picture included)

    Let us see what everyone is riding. List where you are from and what you got. Post pictures. I am from JP Massachusetts and here is my baby:




    This is a list what I have added:

    - Talas R fork
    - SRAM X.9 triggers
    - SRAM X.0 rear derailleur
    - SRAM PC99 chain (broke the old one)
    - Velocity VXC rear wheel from oddsandendos.com (bent the old one)
    - One Mag brake lever (killed the old HFX 9)
    - Time ATC pedals
    - XT cassette (these are weak as hell -- don't buy them)
    - Lizard skin grips (they are awesome -- a must have for everyone)

    Let's see everyone elses ride.

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.

    hollowpoint time!

    Well, here was my 03 Team before the crack in the seat tube. It's sporting a mavic 819, iso CK hubs and easton DH monkey lite carbon bar. Now, I've got a 04 replacement frame that I need to build up.

    It works well, but I'm not sure I need it. Never needed it on my NRS, and got along fine without if my first 6 weeks on the Hollowpoint, then mysteriously dropped the chain three times during one ride. Installed the chainguide and naturally the problem went away, but I'm not sure what exactly happened that I suddenly was having a problem. After a year, my wife's Speedhub equipped Mt. Vision is running guide-free with zero drops.

    The guide itself is pretty sturdy for XC use and super-adjustable on account of the bag full of spacer washers that come with. Not sure how it compares to beefy DH specific chainguides.

    I really like the 04 HP blue, Skibud, nice looking ride. Are the Lizards lock-ons?

    03 Expert, Wanaka, New Zealand
    - 400mm Thomson s/post (bent the crappy Easton EA50, straightened it and with steel expoxy used 150mm of it as a sleeve to strengthen the seat-tube. I see from Supergo's spec list the 04 has a 27.0 post which is 0.2 smaller than the 03, so I guess the 04 won't have the same seat-tubeproblem)
    - Time carbons
    - XT cassette - quite like them and haven't bent one yet
    - Wheelsmith DB spokes - originals were nasty and fatigued in no time, despite retension from new
    - Still looking for some decent grips...

    Yeah, I didn't quite line up correctly on that one. I was supposed to ride that bottom rock. Still landed it.

    My '04 Sport

    These pics taken about an hour ago, a mile from my house and in the middle of Suburbia, as you can see in the last pic. (That's the 5 freeway in Santa Clarita, Lyons Ave offramp). The bike never moved for all three shots, just me.

    3 week HP expert, completely stock except for seatpost and seat swapped in from my old bike. Lovin' it so far just the way it is.

    Do the 04's really come with toe-clips?

    Well, mine did I can tell you that. And I have gotten nothing but sh*t for it since posting that picture.

    but I like 'em and since I use that bike to commute somtimes, the clips work for me since I don't have to carry an extra pair of shoes to work.

    Good job!

    Hey.. Toe clips are cool. You can wear one pair of shoes, get off the bike and not walk like a duck. To each his own my friend The issue here is It's an Iron Horse, It's mountain biking at each persons personal preference, and... it's a KEWL picture! Ride on Toe clipped one!

    No, it is an old trick. My friend was holding the bike upright and when I shouted "Now" he released, pulled away, I took the picture, he grabbed the bike before it fell.
