    Heehee. Thanks, yours are also amazing! I feel like we're cheating since ours and sgltrk comes from the period when there were basically only rigids.

    Show your rigid.............. bike

    There are some nice looking bikes getting posted in this thread.

    I've just got my old beater 1995 Schwinn Clear Creek to post.

    Yes, the reflectors are lame... I know But this is my ride around the neighborhood and concrete trails when all the dirt around here is closed due to rain.

    And sometimes the easier trails around my neck of the woods when I have a need to kick it old school.

    Here's my filet-brazed custom steel bike built by Bill Stevenson out of Olympia, Washington. It was built in the fall of 1997.

    The bar-end shifter is an interesting experiment. It works well for climbing, especially out of the saddle lunges where I need a quick shift and alot of torque. The 'inboard' bar-ends give me good leverage with 2 fingers on them and 2 on the flatbar. I can still hit the levers from there with my pinky and ring fingers, helps to have large hands.

    Drivetrain is 19/29/46x11-39. The 19 tooth granny ring is an experimental prototype, 5 bolt 58mm bcd. I had to file the bolts a bit to avoid chain interference. The 29t midle ring required some spacers to avoid the chain running into the spider. The rear cassette is 11-14-17-20-24-30-34-39, the last one being a titanium cog from Action Tec. The 19x39 granny gear is sweet, and for the all the crazy naysaysers... I DO have some other gears for climbing that are bit higher.

    The curved seat tube was a styling exercise as much as anything else, but I think it contributes a bit to the suppleness of the ride quality. Angles are 71.5/74.

    My old (20+ year old) Checker Pig and my wifes. Mine has a few upgrades but is mostly as it came new. It had an ITM stem fitted, Answer Hyperlite bars & bar ends and a ti railed seat but the rest is original.
    It has a mix of DX and XT gears and is a nice light bike. I just had to stop riding it when I snapped a ligament in my shoulder.


    My wifes is a few years newer with STX gears and is totally original. It has probably done less than 100 miles since she had it and I got it through a friend so not only is it still almost like new it is actually a hand made pre-production frame..

    It has some road tyres on it as he used to go to Zumba on it sometimes.

    Thanks. I love this thing, still ride it regularly.

    The bike I am experimenting with here is a large 24" wheel bmx frame that's been modified into a 26" rear/27.5" front 'mtn bmx cruiser'. The seatpost goes about 2/3 of the way down the seat tube so I can set it high to climb, and lower it for descents. Almost nothing about this bike is 'normal', yes it's a franken-bike but it is illegally fun to ride. The rear brakes are an interesting (powerful) amalgamation of parts from numerous (dead) sets from Avid, Paul, Marin, etc. The caliper arms were machined from an old Sakae crank arm.

    The front ring is a 26t BMX sprocket from Rennen. At first I had trouble with chain wrap, especially on rough terrain. I modified a Blackspire Stinger and added a little 'cage' which did the trick. The Redline Flight BMX cranks took a bit of trial and error but it was worth it. They are 180mm and super stiff. The front derailleur is only there as a guide (need something better) and there's a tab on the downtube to prevent the chain from dropping.

    I took a Redline BMX spider and filed it to fit on a freehub body. It fits the splines pretty tightly so I'm hoping the freehub body won't get thrashed. We'll see.
    I attached 38t and 42t chainrings (110mm). Both were used so I switched them around so I'd get more wear and so that the ramps would help rear shifting. The Xt derailleur clears the 42t 'cog' just fine.

    The drivetrain I am running is 8 speed, 26x11-42.

    The cogs are 11-14-17-21-26-32-38-42. The gaps are fairly reasonable given how wide a ratio I'm trying to get with just 8 gears. The 26x11 is good up to about 20mph., which for the kind of trails I ride this particular bike on is just fine. The 26x42 ratio is about 16 gear inches which is equivalent to a 20x32 granny, enough for steep grades.


    I just modified the chainring spider and tried it out on the repair stand and it seems to work well. I am recovering from ankle surgery (both sides) so it'll be awhile before I can ride again which is a shame. I am itching to go ride with this new project but I need to be patient and wait until the ankles are fully healed.

    This one is my oldest, 20 years this year. My dad got this in 1993 and passed it on to me about 10+ years ago. I found a Moots titanium stem, Titec HellBent titanium riser bar, and a Ti Cycles post/Titec Ithy's titanium rail seat. It's got a White Industries Limbo Spider with an 18 tooth granny ring. The drivetrain is 18/28/46x11-38, eight speed. I put a curved fork from Burley Cycles on there to give more clearance for the 27.5" tires. If he were still alive he'd proud, and probably want it back.

    The last one is my 2008 Redline D440 29er. It's also pretty 'customized'... Notice the 17t cog attached to the crank. The 17x40 granny is great when I'm tired or at high altitude. The drivetrain is 17/29/44x11-40, eight speed. I guess it's a mix of old and new, Avid BB7's, Dean titanium seatpost, thumbies, etc.

    Ya the post on that bmx cruiser is almost 600mm long. When I lower it, the post goes all the way to the bottom bracket. It's a GT chromoly post that's heavily modified, like just about everything else on that bike.
