    Took her out for a ride this morning at Haw Ridge in Oak Ridge, TN. Very responsive, handles well. Saddle and bars have to go though...

    ...and there were freakin' spiders everywhere. A sure sign that you're the first one on the trail...

    Ah yes, those lovely spider webs. I've eaten plenty of them. It's great when you're behind someone else in the mornings though, haha.

    So happy to have found this forum of other Motobecane owners. I love my 600DS! Here's a pic after a good cleaning. It's got about 2,000 miles on it.

    My Gravity 29point5

    I've replaced the parts I don't like except the wheelset, but Theres one on the slow boat from England right now.

    Handlebars, seatpost and stem are raceface ride, fairly cheap.
    Odi locking rogue grips, vp-69 platform pedals, a charge spoon saddle(same as my road bike) and I've go some hope hoops pro 2 evo sp wheels on the way.

    An old post I know, but what are your thoughts on going from a FS 26 to a hardtail 29er?

    Edit: can't post links so pic doesn't show.

    Got the new seat, wheels, and QR. Also threw an ardent up front to try out.

    I really am happy with this bike and I'm glad I went with the 29point5, this reba is nice and light and I really like the drivetrain and brakes.

    Very nice guys!

    JC - How are you liking the big apples? What pressure do you run them at?

    I really like them, smooth, fast and grippy even with a lot of lay-over angle on the street. Running them at ~35-40#. I should probably have gone a little narrower on the rear though, these are 2.35 front and rear. Still have the original WTB wheelset with the 2.1 Prowler SLs for dirt use; it's nice to able to quick-change the complete wheelset and tires.

    Got a new wheelset the other day. I taco'd my front wheel... So now it's time for some more photos! I've done quite a lot to the bike, slowly but surely.

    -WTB Frequency i23 TCS rims laced up to Shimano XT hubs - I know they arn't as smooth rolling or as light as the Vuelta XRPs that came stock, but I never had any of the stock parts since I built it up from a used frame.
    -IRC Trail Bear front tire - found it in a friend's garage
    -Avid BB7 disk brakes 180 front and 160 rear - so much better than my old Shimano Acera disc brakes
    -Eleven81 platform pedals w/ removable pins
    -Truvativ Stylo 75mm x 5d stem - I wanted to try a shorter stem for better descending and hopping
    -Shimano Deore 9spd shifters
    -Shimano XT 9spd cassette w/ Shimano 9spd chain
    -Avid SD-5 brake levers
    -WTB SST saddle - my old Velo saddle finally gave out, I tried to fix it using tape, glue, and zip ties, but nothing was permanent
    -Marzocchi Z1 rebound knob - the fork was missing it when I got it (craigslist special!)
    -Marzocchi Bomber decals

    I'm looking at getting a seatpost that is more laid back to give some more room in the cockpit.

    My 450HT -

    Well my real bike will be here Monday or Tuesday and can't wait to get started, it is all I can afford but much better than a Walmart bike and I hoping to ride it for a couple of years until I can get my dream bike provided, I'm still alive then lol - here is a preview, real "my" bike pics as soon as I get it all juiced up. I have not seen many of these here so hope that's not a bad sign

    How do you like that SST saddle? Looking to replace the Speed V that came on my Fantom29er with something a little lighter. Great build BTW!

    My Motobecane Fantom29er COMP

    This is my new Motobecane Fantom 29er COMP. I had my reservations about buying online, but had a good friend and experienced rider recommend BikesDirect.com. I was on a budget and was willing to admit that he knew more about bikes than me. Ended up with the most bike for the bucks spent for sure. I'm riding it pretty much stock at the moment but have a few minor tweaks in mind to shave a couple lbs. Really happy with the bike thus far.

    Dirt mode. My Hadley/Flow/Comp build I just finished up.


    Street mode. (Finally replaced those awful Crest stickers with the Hope Hoops ones. MUCH better.)
