    That fork alone is $1350. You have to consider the cost of the hub too. I guess he saved money on the frame in order to treat himself to such a luxurious fork. No clue how much better it is than typical fork, but the hype certainly makes it seem to be far far better.

    skipped lunch yesterday and went on a ride instead. phone pics so a little blurry. i probably should have rested the bike on the chain instead of the post, too







    Fantom 29 Pro SL 21" + stuff from my old bike: ergon grips, suspension seat post, wtb speed progel, lentze cage that's notched in the middle to allow a "standard" ulock to slide through, pedal extenders + toe clips. I didn't bring the ulock, but brought the cable lock for just in case (bought it before i knew better).

    Much Much stiffer then the Reba.... I'm 210 lbs and wanted stiff... I like the Lefty
    I paid $850 for the Lefty... it was on eBay and sold to me as (Lefty Carbon 110 FOX RLC OPI) - NIB New 2010)
    Project 321 hub and stear tube was another $220
    I sold the Reba that came on my bike for $350
    Also I purchased a new lefty from a local dealer for $150 (2000 model) and fliped it on eBay for $600 (Netted $450 on the deal)
    So my actual outflow was $270

    New ones from this weekend. New Bullards Bar Reservoir trail. Pretty cool area, nice smooth swoopy singletrack and therefore suspension optional. I'll be back after the winter for a longer stay, there is about 25 miles of trail just in that area alone, and tons more just a short drive away.

    Maybe thriftier, maybe smarter, maybe just resourceful

    I Love the cassette. Its kinda heavy but its a give and take because its perfect gearing for a 1x9 with a 32t chain ring. Climbs hard and still has plenty of top end. If your not a weight weenie i would recommend this to anyone. I hear some people with the cassettes are breaking hubs but ive had it on all season and havent had an issue yet so i cant comment on that.

    Kurandero77, do you have issues with chain suck and your chain flapping around, changing gears up front by itself, or falling off the big ring to your crankarm when you hit bumps or sail off drops with such a long chain?

    Looks like a few of your bladed spokes are twisted too, but that could just be image quality.

    Kurandero 77,

    How'd you get the frame only? They only have frame+fork listed now. And for only $500?! WOW, what a great price. I'd like to buy only the frame too if they'd offer it.

    I think its great that you got the 300 HT, and find it a great bike, it makes me appreciated my Motos that much more, just to know they can do a good job of making people happy all the way through their line of bikes, it needs more dirt on it though.. nice pic too..

    Hi,
    Here is a pic of my Fantom Pro 19" which I've had since beginning of June 2010. No complaints, been riding it hard. Changed tires, seatpost & seat, seatpost clamp, stem,, headset, bars, grips, and replaced big chainring with a bashguard. Added the requisite mountain goat beer opener. Done wore the cassette out so just installed a SRAM 990 and a new chain.

    2010 Ti fly
    This bike has really grown on me. It's become my do everything bike. converting it to cross the country on next summer. I have a couple of changes to make but this is basically what it's going to look like. It's still a pretty fun offroad bike with the tires changed and rear rack removed.

    Thanks. It's an RST m29 fork in the ever elusive green variant. got it damn cheap from here http://29erpro.com/rst-m-29-29er-suspension-fork

    Doubt they'll get them back in stock any time soon though.

    Posted this in the singlespeed section a week or so ago. Bike is solid but I'm way out of shape. I know it should have a front brake on it but F that it's a city bike and it reminds me of my childhood. It came in at 20.9 lbs, not sure where to shave more weight except ti bolts and stuff. Had to bump the contrast in the pics otherwise the frame looks black. The moto is the most affordable frame with sliders.

    Ergon GE1 grips
    Avid Speed dial 7 lever and BB7 brake

    I was starting to think I had the only one. I love your build as a city bike but you still need a front brake...

    Looks awesome, nice job. I just put those same pedals on my Soulville.
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....

    Sweet ride! I like how much better the seatpost clamp looks with the bolt facing forward.

    Very clean bike.

    Well, I finished building my Outcast up on Friday!

    17" Outcast frame
    VXC rims w/ WI hubs and trials freewheel (18t)
    Conti Moutain King 2.4 tires (pictured) (WTB Nano Raptor 2.1 for when its dry)
    Modded XTR M960 crank (ceramic coated)
    Home Brewed 32t
    KMC X9SL chain
    TR cnc brake levers
    BB7 brakes (203 front pictured but running 160 f/r)
    KCNC Rotors w/ ti bolts
    KCNC seat post
    Merek full carbon saddle (awaiting arrival of Smud full carbon saddle)
    ESI Racers Edge grips
    Alligator i-Link rear cable (standard front-ordering new Elixers in the next month)
    Speed Play frog pedals
    Ritchey WSC stem
    Race Face Next SL 3/4" riser bar
    King hs
    White Brothers Rock Solid fork

    I basically took all the parts off my 26" GT Peace that I built up over the past year and made the jump to big wheels. Weight of bike as pictured is 21.87 lbs. With Nano Raptor tires it comes in at about 20.5. Light enough for me considering the weight of all these parts on my GT was 20.8! So I went bigger and still came in slightly under my old weight!!!

    Nice ride. I almost picked up the 26" version of that frame before getting a great deal on my Soul Cycles (which is no longer produced) . Not a light frame, but they do seem beefy and strong.
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    Thanks! Just upgraded the brakes to som Hayes Stroker Carbons and still waiting on my new carbon seat to arrive from Smud. Should be here by the end of next week since it is coming from Europe.

    Gotta get the new brake lines trimmed and then the next thing will be to go tubeless. Just waiting for the weather to break so I can do it one time with my WTB Nano Raptor tires. Can't frickn wait at this point. But the weather has been sucking and there is nothing but mud out there.

    Upgrades, upgrades, upgrades. Winter montrhs and bonus check have led to adding things to lighten this pig up. It still a work in progress but right now I'll save some money and see what I casn break and then upgrade some more.

    So far: WTB Laserdisc rear rim with XT hub, Xpedo pedals, Easton EA50 bar, PRO PLT stem, Rock Shox Tora Solo Air fork, Straitline bashring, Blackspire chainrings, Maxxis Larsen tires, Oury grips and Sram PG850 Cassette.

    28 Lbs.







    I've got a Truvativ crank, seatpost, and a WTB saddle on the way that should shed at least another 1.5 Lbs. (fingers crossed.

    The bike is setup for urban and trails. I'm trying to find that happy medium but it's hard.

    My fantastic Moto after one year of races and good rides. Some little changes, new titanium sear post ('cause i broke the carbone one), new bar wider from fsa, new crank set with 24/36 rings (faster sifting respecting the xx ratio: 42/28, 39/26, ...), i change the xtr for the sram xo and the front derailleur is now a dura ace with carbon ti inverter. Etc...9.99kg, not so light

    I love the Fly frame. I just wish they made it with an EBB or sliding dropouts. Then again, I am starting to think more and more about just buying one and slapping a Forward Components EBB in it. But I am still trying to recover from the current Moto build.

    Looks great and love the cranks! What is the weight on the build?

    I bought this to replace a '07 Trek 4300 that I traded away. I always like to keep an entry level hardtail in the stable. My long term goal is to convert it to a single speed.

    Motobecane Outcast 29 ss.
    I've posted this before but it's had a few upgrades:
    -RST m29 air fork 80mm
    -WTB Dual Duty FR/Shimano m529 wheelset (With green nipples! lol)
    -WTB Dissent 2.5 (plus slime tubes equals a VERY heavy wheelset)
    -Raceface Evolve ss crankset
    -Nashbar Highlander pedals
    -Avid BB7 brakes
    -Deity Tibia seatpost
    -Deity Vertigo DH saddle
    -Raceface Diabolus bars
    -ESI chunky grips
    -One Avid FR-5 brake lever and one Avid Speed Dial 7 lever (one was destroyed in a crash, and I accidentally got the wrong replacement)
    -Azonic Baretta Stem
    -32x16 gearing

    Easily my favorite bike I have ever owned, Nicknamed the Rhino (It's big, powerful and heavy, 30-32lbs range) But despite the weight, it never feels slow. Takes lots of abuse, swallows 5ft. to flat drops like nothing.

    Buggyr333 I'm tellin you that is the sickest Moto I've seen. Its a pig you gotta ride it like one!


    jellytronics That is also a sweet looking Outcast!

    I love those Blunt wheelsets, they're cheap, totally trail worthy, and look sweet. I have a set on my SE Stout and people always comment on them.

    Are those Aerospokes I assume? How much does it weigh.


    Heres my baby.

    It's finally done. Changed the post to a masterpiece setback to get a little more room in the cockpit. Added XTR pedals, a paul chain keeper and an aliante carbon saddle. Final weight including pedals, lights, computer, and bottle cage....24.9 pounds.

    2007 Moto SS

    Plenty of upgrades and still have much to do. I love this bike...It's fast, reliable and will take a beating. I currently have my "mud tires" on, but will replace as soon as the weather lets up.

    I have an older outcast 29er that I got to use as beater in SF. I ended up loving it and using it as a commuter and riding some trails in sf when I get the chance. I upgraded brakes to XTR v-brakes, carbon stem, Azonic riser bars, Thompson seat post. I know these pics are hard to see, I upload new ones

    Assorted shots from rides during the summer







    In this last shot you can see my chain drooping; the trails weren't quite ready for us in the beginning of the season (little did we know) and I actually tore my derailleur off.

    My 2011 Motobecane Fly Team Ti 29er w/ upgrades

    These pics are of my 2011 Moto Fly after a few additions: XT Trail pedals, K-Force bars & stem, Ergon GX3 grips, Easton Haven wheels w/ Kenda 2.20 Slant Six tires, Red Jagwire cable housing, Vader saddle. Don't sleep on this saddle, it's the best I've ever ridden on!

    Pics of my Moto Fly Team 29er w/ upgrades

    These are my latest pics. I got the K-Force bars & stem. I also ordered a K-Force seat post which came in the wrong size, so it's currently being exchanged.

    Btw, for non bike snobs: I've seen a lot of folks ask about the Vader Saddles on MTBR. The one I have is the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden on! They're basically knock-offs of more expensive Selle Italia and Fizik saddles. The saddle is well built, very light, and fits perfectly. It arrived to my door at $21.00 including shipping.

    For me, this bike is a night/day improvement over my Trek 820. I've had it since mid July and think I'm done spending. From here on out it's just riding and maintaining!

    Well, maybe I'll change the hydraulic tubing to Jagwire white during a future fluid change....

    I'd say that's huge upgrade over a 820. Any idea on what that vader seat weights?

    I agree! I'm beside myself and couldn't be happier! I had the Trek 820 since 1998. It's served me well and still has all of the original components except for inner tubes and replacement twist shifters.


    I only had a bathroom scale which starts around 20lbs, so I didn't weigh any of the components separately. Currently, this 21" (XL) 29er weighs in at 24.8 lbs exact. It was 24.5 lbs straight out the box, before any changes. Despite adding the carbon components, I still basically broke even. The Easton Havens wheels are a stronger, trail ready wheelset, but they are heavier than the XC oriented Vuelta XRP Team Superlites they replaced. The Ergon grips also add to the overall weight; replacing the original foam grips.

    About the seat:
    The seller on Ebay and other sites list this particular model as weighing in at 280grams.

    Swapped seatpost for carbon, swapped (short) handlebars for longer carbon ones. Looking forward to an American Classic wheelset at some point...

    I can imagine those small block eights could not be in better trail conditions! That must be nice to really get to use them to their full potential. Back east they're limited by the wet, mossy conditions the soil can be in at times. This year in particular, they were pretty ineffective due to the frequent rains so I gave the Kenda slant six a try. They're ok, but probably need a 2.4 sized UST version to really take advantage of conditions here.

    Happy Trails!!!

    Btw, the bike is slammin!!!! And looks familiar....

    Haha thanks man! And on the Kendas... you know it's funny you should say that, because normally I'd agree. It's been dry as a bone trail riding here in NM since I got the bike and they've been performing admirably. I have been, quite honestly, pleasantly surprised by them. But that part of the trail you see there does not tell the whole story of today's ride, which was embarked upon only 2 days after the heaviest rain we have seen all year.
    Needless to say, further up the trail, it got quite muddy, and the Kendas absolutely fell apart. Everything went out the window. I mean, just terrible. Mud shedding ability... what's that? Before long I was basically riding mud on mud and had to hike quite a few sections simply because I couldn't get any traction at all. And it honestly wasn't really wet mud either, but here in NM we get more of a clay type mud that just makes things hard to deal with, good tires or no.

    Anyway, I'll take one day of crappy performance. Lesson learned.

    Big and little. Funny how huge the Moto looks. The other bike is my old old GF HiFi Deluxe (both are size large) that I sold to my best bud (and riding partner) a few years back. As big as the bike looks, it sure doesn't feel that big. This was before I took the stickers off the wheels and fork.
