    Here is my Element 70 (R)MSL after a decently muddy race.









    But I prefer it to be a clean

    I always wanted one in my youth but could never afford it.
    Now I can, so here it is.

    Here's my build... 2012 Element RSL Team Carbon. Almost bought a Titus Racer X frame when I got a smokin' deal on this instead. Couldn't be happier! Swapped most of the components over from my Hei Hei. Still waiting for a few carbon components to get this thing under 24lbs for race season. Also saving a few bucks to get proper XT shifters and brakes (rather than the dual control ones I have now). Later on, I might try 650b (if I can swap that fork for the Fox Float F100) and possibly a dropper post! Running it 3x9, but will either switch to 2x10 or 1x10 etc. once I decide.

    Took it for a first ride today... while I need to get used to it for the downhill (and also since I'm going from an oversized 19.5 L frame to a proper medium), at times during the climb I felt like it was almost climbing on it's own!

    Cheers!

    BTW, some seriously sweet rides in this thread! =P

    Excuse me, I have a element 950, which mounts to the rear thru axle?
    I know it's a 142x12, but that system? For understanding the step to choose from, I have to change it but I see that there are various choices .....

    It's the Shimano system. DT Swiss has an RWS version as well.

    It is not compatible with the Syntace X-12

    I'm not really following what this means. I replaced the OEM DT Swiss wheelsrt on my 2012 950 with an Easton wheelset, 12 x 145 in the rear. Does this mean that Easton uses the Shimano and DT Swiss system?

    All the 12x142 hubs are compatible, the differences are the way the axle QR interfaces to the frame dropouts that is unique between the Shimano and Syntace X-12. The DT RWS E-12 thru is compatible with the Shimano axle interface. The Syntace X-12 has a tapered seat on the axle interface, the Shimano is flat.

    @zonoskar your old rocky is amazing! could you post other photo of the details? and if you can write the list of components... I recognize old turbine crankset, and I think that could be a syncros Ti seatpost...but it's a beautiful ht mtb!!!

    Thanks Archibike! The crank set is indeed an old Turbine, but I don't know how old (there are some numbers on the inside of the arms). The seat post is indeed a Syncros Ti. The rest of the components are Avid Single digit V-brakes + levers, Mavic Crossmax v2 wheels/hubs, a red Flite. Shifting duties are handled by Shimano XT with a XTR rear derailleur (950). Handlebars are from Specialized (still looking to replace those), stem is a Rocky Mountain OEM and the forks of course are Pace RC35 MXCD.

    Re: Post your RM shots



    My new RM Altitude 750 msl. Got a killer deal on the 2013 closeout and have changed it up quite a bit. Should be competed (for now) this weekend after I install my new X-Fusion Sweep fork, Shimano brakes and WTB Frequency rims with new Maxxis High Roller 2s.

    I've already done the poor man's xx1 with the Race Face wide narrow chainring a the Wolftooth 42t cog. Swapped handlebars and stem for Race Face Atlas ones and ESI grips

    Sweet looking rig! I tried really hard to find a '13 closeout, but wanted full carbon - couldn't find one in the US! - and I would have had to pay big bucks to bring it in from Canada so I ended up getting a new one.

    Out of curiosity, how is that Wolftooth 42 cog so far? Do you get flawless shifting or is it a bit sloppy? Also, looks like Gooseberry Mesa in the background?

    I've really like the Wolftooth cog so far. It's pretty flawless with no issues with it at all. Might be a little more clunky getting into the 42t and where the 17t was removed but I don't even think about it when riding.

    The pic is at Little Creek Mesa, just opposite of Gooseberry. Awesome trail

    Took long enough but I made the switch to 29 wheels and I'm loving it so far. The bike is amazing to ride. Here's the new Element 999 built up pretty well with a 120 fork on the front, 1X10 XTR and Next SL cranks, formula brakes, stans/dt wheels. It's sitting at 10.3 kg right now but I don't think I want to change anything about it. And unfortunately the nice little puppy sitting in front of the bike just can't keep up any more.

    A Pair of Altitudes

    My wife and I both ride Altitudes. Hers is a 2010 RSL 90 and mine is a 2013 MSL 790. Not too many upgrades - we figured Rocky did a pretty good job on both builds.

    An updated picture of my Altitude 70. Swapped out the red housings to a less flashy white. Threw on a set of Sun Ringle Chargers as well. Hopefully, I'm done.

    hy guys!
    Does anyone use or have used the 1x9 or 1x10 with the new narrow-wide chainring on the old Element(or Instict) or Slayer(or edge) 2001-2006 model?
    I'm thinking about a 1x9 configuration for my old slayer and I need to know if with new kind of chainring I can use the bike without chainguide...
    Thanks to all!

    Archibike,
    you can use 1x9 or 1x10 at any bike definitely.
    30.000m descending in Crimea and Alps - no chain loss at all!

    I've had zero issues with the Race Face narrow wide 30t chainring and the SRAM x-9 type 2 rear derailleur. No chainguide, and I haven't dropped the chain since I got it.

    I've finally decided to use 1x9 on my old Slayer... first impression (during a short back-country xc ride) was very good!
    I temporary use a 36t FSA dh ring, and with the correct length of the chain and the good spring of the xtr derailleur, I haven't dropped the chain... probably on september i'll buy raceFace or Hope narrow-wide chainring, but only for aesthetical purposes...

    I hope that next upgrade could be a RaceFaceTurbine crankset, Thomson Am carbon bar and probably an Hope Pro2 gunsmoke rear hub...and a ck headset...
    this white Ritchey comp bar is "a little" hugly if compared to the other components

    Early morning ride today. Bike is finally the spec that I want, probably should have bought the Rally edition from the start. Main changes:
    - 160mm pike fork
    - monarch plus debonair
    - e*thirteen chain guide
    - raceface SixC 785mm bar
    - minion DHF/HD tires

    Still need to dial in the suspension, but it's super fun already. Weights 28.8lbs with pedals.
