    Those Elements may look a little dated now, but they are great riding bikes by any standard: light, stiff and fast. I have a 2010 Element SE, which is almost the same bike. My son rides it now--I bought an Instinct 970--but I still take the Element out to do a few XC races now and again. I would keep the SID fork on it. A newer Fox fork might be slightly better, but not really worth the money for the difference it would make.

    Got my t-bolt last week... Fighting off a cold now but hopefully hitting the trails tomorrow. Command Post IRcc is in the mail, in the market for a 140mm fork to pimp this bad boy up.

    Slik graphics are the go. Got my stickers from them, not colour matched though.

    Indeed

    So far I've added meetier tires (ardent 2.4 front, 2.25 back), seapped my 80mm stem for a 50, specialized dropper post and getting a 2015 Fox34 130mm factory up front next week... Cant wait to try it at 130!

    I think there's a saying, something like, "the best camera is the one that you have on hand". In a similar vein, the best bike is the one you're riding...

    Cheers man, and let 'er rip. Braaaap!

    Canmore Nordic Centre last summer, I always enjoy riding in Canmore, although it would be nice if the air was a bit denser and had more oxygen available. My sea level lungs are never quite ready for 1400m elevation.

    Switched the Ride 9 position back to neutral for this ride. Was hitting the bottom bracket a lot over downed trees and rocks with the chip in the slackest position. I think I still enjoy the ride more in the slackest position but can't decide if it's worth bashing the bottom bracket a bit more.

    I had the same concern, and then dropped a longer fork onto it. Didn't actually help much with the original problem, but made it way more fun to ride (the '14 F32 Evolutions are underwhelming when compared to more recent Fox34s, Pikes, or MRP's Stage). I'd still prioritize a dropper over choppering it out with a bigger fork though.

    Also, MTBR +Rep system is indirectly informing me that you're putting up too many gorgeous pictures too quickly. Keep them coming!

    Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately my iPhone really can't capture how beautiful some of the scenery around here is... but it's fun to try anyway.

    To be fair, I guess I'm not sure if it's the bottom bracket or part of the downtube, so I don't know if that bash guide would make any difference or not. I may try machining a makeshift one myself, or I may just deal with it.

    Loving all the bikes on this thread!
    Posted elsewhere on this site but thought I would throw it up here on the RM Shots thread as well.
    Aussie based 2010 NOS Rocky Mountain Blizzard (L)
    Columbus Zona steel frame
    Shimano 1x10 with Praxis wide-range cassette
    Shimano Deore brakes (replacing the Avids in this pic)
    Fox F32 120mm fork, Raceface cockpit and chainring (Saint pedals)
    Easton EA70 XCT wheel set with Racing Ralph 2.25 x 26.
    Since this pic (only a couple of weeks ago) have added a KS Lev dropper post and Shimano Deore brakes.
    I can see this sweet steely forcing my other steel hardtail (Niner ROS 9) out of the garage and up for sale.
    Might even try 27.5 wheels at some point too (LBS reckons they'll fit!)

    Every time I ride the T-bolt I am just happy as can be with the way it handles and just gets on with roots and rocks and stuff on the trail. I bumped the Ride9 to the 5 position and that little extra BB height has proven to be handy.

    here are a couple of shots of my old RM Altitude 730 and my new Thuderbolt 790 MSL BC Edition


    the top photo of the Thunderbolt was taken at he start of the downhill section of Merlin's View.

    The picture of the Altitude (was a rare moment f creative genius and a well placed rock) was take at Jumping Pound Loop.

    Both trail are just outside of Calgary Alberta
