    My '03 Rocky Mountain Elevation. I bust this out every once in a while when I feel like I am getting too complacent on my full suspension bike.

    Thinking about upgrading the wheelset so I can go to disk brakes. Anybody still like their 26" Hardtail?-1920399_10153512325305476_7617443497800281119_n.jpg

    Guys, there is something seriously wrong with pictures you are posting, do you actually ride your bikes or do you just carefully carry them to woods?

    This is what happens to my bike every ride, it seems not to matter that temps are below freezing and there being snow, I find that soft spot:




    Yes, I might be tad old school, but at least bike visits where it was made to visit and does it often

    And some wonder why I run chain dry, it really does not make any difference if I lube it or not...

    My '01 Schwinn Homegrown converted to SS. At 19.5 lbs, this is my go-to ride.

    Both my bikes are 26" and both built by me

    GT Avalache 2.0 (3x10) and Kinesis Decade Virtue (single speed)

    The Kinesis is brand new (well the parts are anyway)

    As my mid-life crisis , I built up a bike from scratch. For some , it's a red Ferrari , for me , it was my ultimate Ti custom dream bike.
    I asked Kocmo to build me a frame for Lefty/Rohloff/Carbon Belt/55 tooth front plate and yes , 26'' wheels.
    They can do anything , any size of wheels , they could have invented a new size of wheel if I asked.
    But I prefer by a very wide margin the smaller/tighter/lighter wheels.
    Haven't tried a 700 wheeled MTB that had that tightness and reaction to input and acceleration.

    And BTW , I'm 6'2''

    I still keep my old 1997 VooDoo around and rode it at the local park recently. What a heap of fun it was!

    It was such a different experience from my FS trail bike. Lots of fun popping off roots that I'd otherwise just roll over with my main bike. It seems to rip around sharp corners more easily too.

    I have to take some pictures soon to show it.

    I still ride my old mid-'90s Trek that's not only a hardtail but rigid. Still rocking a 7-speed cassette lol. Its been upgraded with new brakes, shifters, stem and bars but its what got me off the roads and on the trails 10 years ago. I try to swap between it and my hardtail 29er. My old road bike is now a gravel bike.

    As a Trail Builder, I build what I like to ride. Which just happens to be tight twisty technical with a lot of quick little vertical stuff. Lots of little berms and bumps to pump on. Ravines that I can berm on walls and drop thru repeatedly in rapid secession is a favorite.

    The kind of stuff my 26" is great at. And the Big Wheel people ***** about.

    I even built up a short wheelbase FS 26" bike to zip thru the twisty stuff like butter and leave the stifled 29'ers in the dust.

    I was heartbroken to have my 2005 ht cannondale stolen in miami. I was in the market but only found 27.5 and 29... then my buddy sold me his 26" only catch is that its f/s haha, not my style but it was well worth the money so ill try it out.

    Still ride mt 1994 Trek Mountain Track 830! I have had this bike since it was new, nd recently got a Surly Krampus. It is interesting to ride the trails with this bike, and then go right to the Krampus to see what happens. It has also become my commuter bike.

    Posted this up when I built it a couple of years ago, still going strong as the go-to ride in my stable: 2012 Chameleon with a mix of parts from Chromag, Sram, Shimano, Deity, Mavic and Race Face.
