    I'm frighteningly content with my rides. No new upgrades, although a new fork on Glitter would be nice. I'm planning on getting a new bike hauler soon, does that count?

    However, new season? I am, like, so over winter, you can't even believe! I'm heading out shortly to ride and I've got a silly grin pasted to my face because of it!

    Ride is good. It definatly took some getting used to. The bb clearance is huge compared to my HT. It's my first squishy, and so far so good. I think it will be great for the Maine roots and rocks.

    The stem is a 135, yes long, but perfect for my gangly caveman arms.

    this has been all over the SS boards, but here' goes -

    new custom steel Curtlo SS rec'd in January. Had all of the parts waiting in a big box that I had been gathering during the 5 month wait. King hubs & headset, Boone titanium cog & spacers, Easton carbon DH bars & seatpost, XTR calipers, XT levers & rotors, XTR cranks w/Jericho ring, Candys. Vuelta rims, SDG saddle, Thomson stem, Oury lock-ons. Pink powdercoat, and a bottle opener About 23# as she sits. I'm amazed at how comfortable the ride is without suspension. I sold my FS Jekyll to fund this baby.

    That bike is so hollywood. You should change your handle. Hmmm...

    So do you buff that paint before every ride? I would. You are the bike ***** with all that xtrrrrrrrrrrrrr. XTR brakes make me smile every time I use them. Those oury lock-ons are cool. Got a bigger photo?

    Your cranks aren't straight btw. Also there's a piece of extra metal near the left dropouts. You was robbed man.

    Thanks...I didn't have a ton to spend, but I didn't want a POS either so spent a little more than the wife wanted. Now if the trails would unfreeze and I could take it off-road, things would be good

    2004 Fuel 100 & soon to be 2004 Racer X100

    Bought a Fuel 100 a month or so ago to replace my Racer X (80mm). Frame only picture as just built it up a week or so ago. Just ordered a Racer X100 version.....but with a 12 week wait. Color will be ano grey.
    I'll ride both for a while and probably just keep the Titus

    Love my new dually...

    Finally stepped up to a NRS and immediately upgraded to a Fox Forx and discs (only one for now). Four bikes in the stable: Full Sus (NRS), Hardtail (Rainier), Road (Allez) and Townie (Stumpy). 160 miles a week of bike riding fun!

    New Bike

    Okay this isnt technically mine. The bike owner at the bike shop i work at part time is holding it for me for a couple weeks while i collect my pennies and shillings to pay for it. This is the UK model of the Specialized Stumpjumper Pro. I have been saving for this bike for the longest time. its difficult saving 2K CAN when youre only 15. But hey, i liked it and its a major upgrade over my rockymountain fusion so...

    Here it is i hope you guys like it.

    Here ya' go...

    ...since you asked, my new ride. Yes I've already posted pics of it here...twice. Plan on racing it this weekend, which is scary considering I havn't even been on the trail with it yet...unless you consider my little back yard loop a trail. Used the rooted-up backyard loop to try and dial in the suspension which I think I accomplished. I wouldn't even think of racing a brand new bike but I had to canibalize the old FSR to build this one up. Will probably spend most of Sunday adjusting out cable stretch

    I've been feeling adventurous

    and wanted something that would go both ways. So I built this out of stuff I had lying around.

    Singlespeed
    <img src = "http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/djrwdt153.jpg">

    Geared 1x7
    <img src = "http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/1x7a.jpg">

    Convertible
    <img src = "http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/1x7shifter.jpg">

    I highly recommend the versatility.

    I have been talking to Matt @ Soulcraft about building a custom gearie for myself. I have been crooling over their frames for a few years. How is the rear end stiffness and acceleration on that beauty? Which blue is that (light blue or playboy blue).

    Nice bike!

    I was really impressed with that complete 'brain' system. If I buy an XC bike in the future that will likely be it. Sooper fast and tight.

    Nope - that was beyond my budget for this particular upgrade. It's a Float 100 RLC. Still works great and I usually don't bother locking it out (though I don't have enough miles on the bike yet to really say yet).

    I looked at one - the shop had one in stock, but at another $200 more, just couldn't swing it. If it works like the brain, then it should be an awesome fork!Sorry

    New to me....'03 Specialized Epic.

    Here it is back from it's first ride. I'm exhausted. Trails were not ready. Walked about 1/3rd of trail. After 8 miles I called it quits and took the road back to car.

    my new ride

    My new ride for 04. I bought the entire bike, and pretty much sold everything minus the wheels and built it up from there. I sold off my Giant MCM hardtail shortly after because I was afraid it wasn't going to get used anymore. Kman- I can't wait to see your Fuel when its done.

    Feels like new.

    How about new paint, tires, front wheel, fork, seat, cables and grips?
