    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.

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

    Hey...that bike still looks familiar. Like I've shared the trail with it in Pisgah about a year ago.


    Ha! Short of the new paint, you just described my nightly components swap out amongst the 3 mtn bikes. I'm hopeless.

    Duck-need to get up there and ride with you guys again.

    How about a new fork???

    Just got the Maverick on the 5-Spot yesterday (3-3-04), front brake line is a tad short so no real rides yet. Tons of snow on the trails here in Anchorage anyway. Man I can't wait for breakup.

    I can't decide what's more amusing.

    Generic static bike pictures leaning against sundry inanimate objects or the pasted pictures from manufacturer's websites.

    Well, here's my "Generic static bike picture leaning against a sundry inanimate object" and if you really need something interesting to look at, you just might find a piece or two of good ol' dog poop somewhere in that shot.

    New DT X4.1d rims with red CK ISO hubs that I just got back yesterday and will be able to break in this afternoon, providing that the rain holds off I'm really looking forward to trying out the Kenda Blue Groove on the front. Should be fun!

    1 change, 1 new bike

    I sent my '02.5 Bullit frame back to SCB for crack/defect inspection, as I didn't want to be without it when the warranty period was at its end in May '04. I chose the Matte Orange color for the re-coat... and they sent it to me w/o decals, as they were having probs with their decal supplier... now SCB had decided against the Matte Colors because of the decal difficulties, so I have a rare Matte Orange factory coated Bullit.

    Also, I tore down my Curtlo 5" fork hardtail and rebuilt the parts on a new '04 Ventana X-5. The Curtlo's gonna get some modifications and then get rebuilt later this season.

    Here's the Bullit and the X-5

    Since you asked....

    My beautiful new '03 AC2 - first new bike in many years. Another lame pic from the manufacturer's web site - I promise I'll post one actually riding in a couple of weeks. As a consolation, I've posted an amazing sunset shot I took last fall....

    if i could post a picture of my bike i would ...

    though it would suck right now as it is hanging from the rafters at fat tire (lbs)
    sorry for the cut and paste
    but it will be photographed when i get it (probably be filthy at that point though )

    ... and if we just ... My rides



    The VT frame was purchased in November and built from the parts of a broken Jamis Dakar that I used to ride.

    The green SS was a winter project. It was an old Access frame stripped of his paint, repainted and built from mostly spare/leftover parts.

    I call the Beauty (SS) & the Beast (VT).

    brakes from older Magura Louise to Hayes Mag
    stem to something a little longer and less rise
    wheels from Rhynolights to XC wheels
    saddle from heavy WTB Speed She to lighter WTB female saddle

    What a great post! So many pretty bikes...

    I finally finished my 93 Slingshot restomod.

    1993 Slingshot frame, 97ish 1" Judy (coil conversion with throw back decals), old school Syncros parts, Cook 'E' cranks, World Class Ti bb, Ringle, Control Tech, Answer Hyperlite bar, Tioga Tension Disc, Tioga Psycho Amber tires, SRP bits, hard ass Flite Evolution Carbon saddle....all on a 2002 XTR 9spd drive train.

    It's damn flexy, all 2 miles I've put on it.

    Yeah, it took 2+ years to gather all the parts for it. Some of it hard to find, some just a matter of $$...

    It's definitely a 'look at me' kind of bike. The sound is great with the t-disc.

    So I got my new toy; a Fuji Track bike, it's really cool and utterly worthless as far as practicle function. But did I mention it was cool?

    Oh and lets not talk about the new XTS moto and the new FOCO Edge Single... Sarah might start to ask questions...

    ... and if we just ... My sorta new ride

    01 GF Sugar 3. It had Avid vbrakes, LX combo brake/shift levers and too short a seat post when I got it used. I've put on Hayes HMX-1's with Bontrager Corvair/XTDisc wheels, Titec Stem + EA50 bars, Avid SpeedDial7 brake levers, LX shifters, wtb 2.1 Nanoraptors, Synchros 420mm seatpost and the best piece of bike porn (arrived today) - 03 Fox FloatRL shock. Now just gotta replace the deraileur pulleys with alloy/sealed cartdrige ones (got plastic with ceramic now) and I'm set. It's a new bike to me!
    Oh yeah, an extra pic I thought was pretty cool, doin' a little maintenance and degreasing.

    Well, I didn’t get a new bike but I think I might as well have. I picked up a bunch of stuff over the past couple months to upgrade my Dekerf. I have so far picked up a new X.0. rear derailleur and shifters, XTR front derailleur, XTR cassette, Raceface rings, Pc-99 chain, and will soon be getting (being shipped) a new Thomson Elite Stem and seat post. Also within the month I’ll be adding a new Fox F80 RLT fork to my ride. I was hoping to have those by now but… Can’t wait to get this stuff on and ride!

    Nice bike Mike! My buddy John rides the same frame built up with a full Campy Record groupo and Campy Neutron wheels. It’s a sweet ride. I've never seen so much carbon fibre in one place. The only problem is that if you sneeze within 10 feet of it, the thing flies across the room! It’s crazy light. I’m glad he got it though ‘cause it leaves his Colnago free for me to ride whenever we hook up for a road ride. ;-)

    Can you believe he trusts me with it??
