    Here's my 970 from 2012, still going strong. Although the bushingset is on its last legs, so I'll have to invest in a set of new ones soon.

    Hello Rocky lovers!

    This is my first post here, but I have been a long time lurker... I live in Sweden, at the west coast, and have been mountainbiking since 1995. This is my first Rocky Mountain bike and also my first FS. Im looking forward to try this machine very soon. My intention is to use the bike at various Marathon races around the country. The bike is a custom build and weight is 9.9 kg at size large.

    The weather was so nice this past weekend, finally got to take out my new 2015 Thunderbolt that I bought on Black Friday. I am in love with this bike, so much fun to ride.

    That probably makes just two Rocky's out here, then (I'm a recent immigrant). A Stockholm friend om mine asked if it was a shop brand, it's so unknown it seems ;-)

    Finally a break in the rain so I could get this fresh build out on the dirt. I'm trying the Ride9 in the next steeper position #5 for a little extra BB height. We'll see what that feels like. It's sitting at 24.6 pounds in the photo. I have a pair of the new Schwalbe EVO tubes on the way which should knock off almost 1/3 of a pound out there at the edge of the wheels. I like the feel of the new Fox DPS shock, the bike feels very lively.

    It's not pimped out with Di2, I still can't bring myself to spend that kind of money on a drivetrain. I sure do like this new 2016 paint scheme though. Building it up from the frame was the way to Burger King this build (Have it your way...). Unless they come up with an even cooler paint scheme next year, this may be the Lord of the Chainrings build for me, the one bike to rule them all.

    Yeah, the paint scheme is so cool, and the white fork looks perfect with it.

    Aside from the Next SL cranks also added some colour from Rie:sel Design (mudguard and chain stay protector)...

    Minion DHR II upfront, with the Ardent 2.4 in the rear. Tried the Ikon, but like the Ardent better...

    Damn that's a sweet looking bike. I do wish I could afford one of the newer models, but I'm loving mine anyway.

    Mine again now that the snow has melted and I am actually riding it:

    Building on yesterday's post, I took my '93 Altitude off the rafters and took her for a quick spin today... Almost feels like a toy after riding modern full-suspension.

    Still a sweet rig though. Nothing feels quite the same as Tange Prestige Superlight tubes...

    I love that paint scheme as Green is my favorite color for bikes. I'm jealous of your terrain but I'll be in Bellingham for the first week of April. You can see my Green SB6c and Evil Following in the back as today I rode my 5c. The Thunderbolt is in the shop for a couple minor tweaks. Me and my Son share our bikes as his is the Evil but I bought it for him.

    Beautiful spot Goldfly! Me, I drove 200 km to get to a dry trail free from snow for my first ride on my Thunderbolt 750. This is my first F/S and I think we will have a nice summer together

    Post your RM shots

    Me on my 2012 Element RSL 26er at Wooroy Forest, west of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast (2hrs drive north of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia).



    More technical climbing



    Time for a break - lots of climbs on a 35C, 90%+ humidity day takes it out of anyone.



    I raced this bike on short course XC last summer season. Was so much more forgiving coming off my On-One Whippet carbon hard tail. Although, I do love a good HT and would like to pick up a Vertex or old school steel RM if one pops up at the right price.

    The mud is real...

    Early-season riding found some deep, goopy mud as the ice melts. One section was SO thick the wheels actually stopped turning. Pics below are after about 5 minutes of goop removal just so I could ride home...





    ... and after a thorough hose-down:

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Just got my bike out of its winter hibernation, took a spin around the neighbourhood to try out the new Praxis 11-40t cassette and the tinkering I did to the forks over the winter (Operation Plush ride: Float 36 high volume kit on the way).

    Feels good! Looking forward to the forest trails to lose their snow and ice.

    A break in the rain is almost as good as a sunny day at this time of year in this part of the world. Lots of wet roots and rocks, just to continually earn my forum handle. One stretch of trail was basically an uphill running creek bed.

    My Thunderbolt gets better each ride. The bike is so fast and today I rode the chip in the most slack position and loved it. I was also able to get the 16' float DPS shock perfect today and I think it was worth the upgrade over the CTD.

    What a beaut!! I thought seriously about a custom build using a '16 799 frameset, but the deal on my '15 whole bike was too good to pass up. Good to see it in its natural habitat!!

    Yes conditions in BC this weekend were about as good as it gets. Rode Sumas mountain Friday, Saturday and today (Sunday). Sadly rain for tomorrow. Hopefully not too much.

    Finally found a nice deal on a coil shock to fit my 2010 Altitude RSL - just one 3 hour ride so far, but it feels amazing!

    Sometimes you eat the trail, sometimes the trail eats you.

    Thinking of buying a home?
