    here are a couple of shots of my Giant XTC1. The only notable upgrades (for now... ) are a Recon fork, Mavic 717 rims, a Thudbuster seatpost, and Moto Raptor tires.

    Just browsing through this thread and noticed only 1 person was using a mud guard. Why no love for the mud guards? Is it not cool?

    Some pretty sweet rides posted and such variety which is cool

    I'll get a pic of mine up shortly. 2009 Trek 6700 with upgrades to Reba XX 20mm TA, XTR FD, Sram X9 shifters, WTB velociraptor tires, and Fizik gobi xm seat. I am dying to get out for the first ride of the year and getting muddy.

    Cheers

    Because most trails don't allow riding when it's wet. No riding in wet=no mud=no mud guard.

    Various reasons, I think:

    - the uncoolness is one
    - many don't like to ride at all when conditions are wet and dirty. Depending on your location, riding in the wet may cause severe damage to trails too
    - mudguards is another thing that can break, get snagged on something, fall off... If you don't need it, better leave it at home.

    Now that I'm here, I might as well post a pic from last summer:

    AND: you take the mudguard off before taking the foto and put it back on afterwards.

    I'm just getting back into riding after about 12 years off and finally got out a few days ago in wet/muddy conditions. When I got back home it looked like I had a diarrhea bomb go off - mud was every where. I went out and picked up a $20 mud guard for the next ride.

    I can see later in year, when it's dry, not needing the mud guard and that some trails don't want you riding when it's that wet. I don't really know any actual maintained trails in Mississauga (Canada) but have been able to find a few spots along a river near my place that look pretty decent - not sure where they end but isn't that the joy of riding.

    I take a few pics tonight and post the new ride

    Cheers

    I'll play. Here's mine, it's a '00 S-Works HT.
    Have added a few upgrades to keep it fresh. Currently at 18.5lbs/8393g.

    Cool to see everyone enjoying their hardtails.
    Sad, but I hardly see people riding them anymore...love mine though!

    My 2010 Trek 3500 hardtail. Not that pricey, but it's all my budget would allow. So far, a really nice ride. I plan on upgrading a few of the components.

    really? not too many hardtail riders near you? maybe it's a trend to ride a FS bike. there are always a handful of riders who are worried more about how they look than about the actual riding experience. i've talked to a few riders on the trails who had FS bikes and asked them where they go and after they told me, there's no way you need a FS bike to ride those trails. unless you're doing 5 foot jumps and challenging territory with tons of drops and rocky areas, i can't justify buying a FS bike.

    You forgot the pic of your stock Trek 4300. No, we don't want to see the manufacturer's pic, we want to see your pic.

    This sucker handled well on its first 4 or 5 hour mountain ride. It was nothing but stock components then but now it's getting upgraded and it's nearly finished. I will re-post newer pictures when I get the new levers/white housing.





    Now if someone could point me to white disc rims...

    Yeah, I'm in So Cal, and the majority of riders on the local trails that I ride are on FS bikes (although the trails I ride are far from what would be considered 'challenging' or 'rocky with lots of drops'...) As you mentioned, perhaps some of it is just a trend. But I think alot of riders choose FS simply for the comfort (nothing wrong with that). Obviously a HT is a harsher ride, but to me it's just more fun. I come from a roadie background, and pedaling the HT just feels more natural. Maybe with the 29er trend catching on, we'll see some 29'er HT's around here.

    Here are a couple, a little outdated:


    '06 Stumpjumper hardtail


    Loaded up for the annual Midnight Century on paved + gravel roads. It was awesome, knocked it out in about 6:20 wall time.

    A night century ride? that's awesome

    Btw, how did your RK's hold up? running them tubed or tubeless?

    Mine have been great so far (although some complain about the thin sidewalls and difficulty setting them tubeless)

    That's right, candy bars but I was riding hard enough that I decided to stick to energy drinks and PowerBars, instead of trying to digest candy bars, so I ate them once I got home

    The RK Supersonics held up great! The "pockets" in the tread blocks have disappeared but they're not worn out, nor are they losing tread blocks off the casing, so I'm really pleased with that purchase.

    Not dead, just kinda asleep. MTB and bicycle trends come and go, and look at all the MTB stuff at NAHBS, most were hardtails, the 29er trend is even dying down a little (thank god, lol.) I must admit though, I have fallen to some trends too as of late, like the townie vintage styling, but when it comes to my mountian bike, a 26" HT is hard to beat, be it rigid, SS, or geared. Never had the need for a dually, not my kinda riding. Anyways..... Lots of nice stuff here. Dude, that YETI IS F"N SWEET. I wish I never sold my ProFro

    I was kidding about the DEAD part. Merely a stab at the establishment that thinks FS is the only way to go.
    The Yeti used to run the Spinergy wheelset, i thought it was sweet. But, i have to say, TI hardtail is my all time favorite. I kick myself for selling my steel hardtail. Live and learn i guess.

    Hey, for this kind of pictures you definetely have to leave the mudguard on. Sure. If you take pictures of garage queens: Off. Pictures of dirty mud b!tches: On. Easy one.

    Oldie by a goodie...about to be rebuilt. It's been a great ride, but it needs some serious work. I love the steel frame, and may just buy a BD bike and strip all the components off of it. I don't know if I can bring myself to get rid of it.

    Specialized Stumpjumper 2008 - custom

    Hello there

    Well, here is my Specialized Stumpjumper 2008. I changed almost all the parts. Only one thing more I would like to change on this bike are pedals. Hopefully I'll be happy then...at least for a while

    Did you change the frame too?

    So how much does your complete assembly weigh? Curious minds want to know!

    Hi Mikey,

    Heh I think the word was "almost"
    It's 24 pounds. Not bad considering I was choosing only pretty parts, not light.

    I'm new here and new to mountain bikes. I read somewhere here that a quality hardtail was a good bike to start on so I picked this up yesterday and here I am!

    *edit* I'll take some trail pics tomorrow if the rain holds out. Hopefully they'll be in focus this time.

    Thanks.

    The saddle is the one discussed here:
    Cycle King Carbon Racing Saddle

    It's carbon, but more comfortable than my SLR Carbonio.

    Jeff,

    Cool blog. Hope you have a great season!

    Where can you get Rotwild? (It's a German bike company?)
    Do they have a US distributor?

    Also, how are you liking the XX stuff compared to XTR?

    I've riden hardtails all my life (with a very brief trip to the dark side)... but these days I have eyes for only one.

    All the abuse she's been through and yet she begs me to take her out and abuse her more. What's a boy supposed to do?

    My Trek 3900 Disc converted to SS with Avid BB7's, a Maddux wheelset (took a gamble on this and wow did it pay off, I love these things!) and few other goodies. Getting a new fork soon, but have been shelling out some money on new furniture for the apartment lately
    I like beer.

    Rotwild has no North American distributor. If you want one, you need to order from a retailer in Europe.

    Loving the XX so far...although only been on it for 2 weeks. The thing that pops out the most is that the XX has more usable gears that XTR or a 3x9 system. Seems that 3x9 gear ratios are redundant. Each gear on the XX gives you a little something different. So far...so good!

    I'd not change a thing...very nice ride. I'd ride that thing until it breaks...then replace whatever you broke with an upgraded part.

    Thanks man, it took a lot of time/money to get it the way I wanted it but it got there. The seven is a great fork and rides perfect.
    Bought it new and it wieghed in at 33lbs as it sits now it weighs 25lbs. The guys I ride with call it a hotrod,with all the goodies I put on it. kind of became its nickname.

    Oh yeah I wouldn't be buying the underware for you but I can send you the cash and you can get them. haha

    Where did you take the bulk of the weight out?

    I tore the bike down to the frame when I bought it. I removed everything from the grips to the bottom bracket and over the winter I rebuilt it(winter of 07). The majority of the weight loss came from the new rims (mavic crossrides). From there it was just a little here and there I guess. I bought components based on performance/quality not weight and ended up with an overall of roughly 25lbs. I just put new cranks on this spring.

    Nice bike! I need to get myself a stand like yours. I was riding yesterday and I bent a chain ring going through pretty light mud. I was pretty upset about it but the bike shop threw on a new FSA crankset for free. Yet another reason to buy from a real bike shop! I have pictures but I'm lazy when it comes to computers. The guy at the bike shop seems to think it was my fault but there was nothing that got in the gears I just put it down to 1 from 2 and it chewed the ring up Oh well, he fixed it anyways.
    I would like to ride a FS bike at some point just to see what its like, but if that day never comes I won't be the least bit upset. I'm pretty content with my hard tail

    New ride: Cliff 29er Pro. Just took it out for a few hours this afternoon, and it's a fantastic bike. It's a bit heavy at the moment with some no-name bars and seatpost on it, but that just leaves room to upgrade.

    Avid Juicy 5, SRAM X-7 F&R, RockShox Tora Race Air, Continental Mountain Kings on WTB Speed Discs.

    Great forum!

    OK; so other than riding the BMW K1200RS or the M5, I like riding this guy which is now the official companion of the road bike (DeRosa)

    My new HT frame. Got this on a killer closeout deal. '09 Dakota Elite. She weighs in at 23.4lbs, after a tire swap in the front (specialized fast track 2.0 armadillo.)

    sorry for the crappy phone pic
