    not today but last week. new XT freehub body, which got rid of a "knocking" sound in the rear and 185mm G3 cleansweep rotor up front. there's a bit of difference from a 160 and they don't squeal as the shimano rotor did. either today or tomorrow new tires, maxxis ADvantage 2.1

    You guys are making my 304 jealous. I'm waiting to finish my retro SS project before I upgrade the cockpit and brake cables.

    that frame is worth upgrading parts on, as $$$s permit. did that with my old '06 104 before it was warranty replaced and it was the equivelant of the 604, if not better. made for a better ride too, over a mozo shock and spinner fork which a utter crap but used to keep the $$$s down, oh and the winzip disc brakes too

    I rode it ~23 miles yesterday at Brown County State Park, Indiana. It worked great, I bonked around mile 19 but recovered a little and made it back to the car.

    heres a pic of my bike, nothing too crazy on it yet! Still trying to figure out how it would be best to mount my speedometer sensor/magnet. I have it attached now, but I had to put some rubber pieces under the sensor to push it closer to the magnet on the spokes. Im thinking about installing it on the right side of the forks, since the spokes on that side are closer to the fork leg(because the disc brake is on the other side) but then the cable for the sensor isnt wrapped around anything. Right now the sensor wire is wrapped around front brake cable...
    jk about pic of bike, I guess I need to have 10 posts first lol

    So I bought a 2006 solo one. I've been tuning it up and going through it to get it ready for my first ride. Adding hydraulic disc brakes too finished the back last night. I removed these tiny bar ends and put some new grips on it too. Can't wait to try it out tonight

    Put her up for sale!

    I put a craigslist ad up for my like new 2009 KHS XC Team frame and Monarch 4.2 rear shock. This thing has only a handful of rides but I just have too many stinkin toys! I hope to find a buyer at $400. Shouldn't be a problem I hope!

    new racrface handlebars ( atlas low raiser ) and new stem - fsa 100 mm.
    changed the bike around.
    although it's an entry level bike ( alite 150 ), with new stem and handlebars it has very classy feel.
    sorry for the bad quality photo.

    Took my soft tail to the LBS to get thewheels trued. I installed new pads and now the rim brakes work great again. Maybe I don't need to convert to disk brakes.

    I finished my Reba rebuild and replaced all rear bearings with Enduro Max bearings. I'll re-tweak the suspension settings next ride.

    Upgraded the stem/bars/seat and post today. Ditched the old heavy no-name stem and Kore post with new Syncros stuff. Going to try to pick up a new set of tires over the weekend.

    Edit: Picked up a set of Panaracer Smoke/Dart Classics. Figured I'd go with something tried and true. Definitely lighter than the WTB EnduroRaptors they replaced. Actually, the bike as a whole feels lighter with the new cockpit and tires. Meh. Probably in my head.

    I installed new cranks and converted over to a 1x9 set up with a Paul's Chain Keeper... dropped over 3lbs!! My extra large XC204 is now down to 30.5lbs!

    With the addition of some new tubeless wheels in the coming months and I should be able to down to the goal of 29lbs...

    Just added Avid SD-7 levers, Peaty lock-on grips (stipped screws on the Ourys)..........oh, and installed an X-Fusion Enix in place of the Manitou Black. Just gotta set it up and take it for a ride. Shaved 3/4 of a pound off of the bike.
    Pics coming.
