    A bunch of changes have been made to my bike since the last pic posted. Added was a Loaded USA AmXC Stem, Race Face Turbine Handlebar, SDG saddle, X-Fusion Hilo Dropper post, Loaded USA seat clamp, new Fox Fork 15mm lower and some new cable housings. I've also just installed a Chris King headset that didn't make the shot.

    Nice upgrades Shakester. Looks sweet with the red housings/bars. I "need" a dropper post, next...and a fat bike, and a crossbike, and to win the lottery, lol.

    Thats a nice bike. I almost picked one up myself since there was a shop that had the 2013s on sale for like $1700.

    New Altitude

    First up, thanks for all you guys from a long time lurker here, your feedback has helped me buy two great bikes.

    I just got my new bike, 2014 Altitude 750 MSL with a few mods
    - Flow EX rims and hubs
    - Hans Damph/ Maxxis High Roller 2 tires
    - XT brakes and front ice tech rotor
    All up 29.8lbs with Candy 1 pedals

    Joins its big brother 2013 Element 950 MSL
    - Arch EX rims and hubs
    - Rocket Ron/X-King tires
    - Ice tech F rotor
    All up 27.8lbs with Candy 1 pedals

    Post your RM shots-photo.jpgPost your RM shots-photo2.jpg

    First ride impressions: Took it up to Mt Pinos. Being its first ride, everything was pretty tight and hadn't been worn in yet. That said, first thing that struck me was how similar it climbed to my Element, really does climb well for a longer travel bike with not a lot of pedal bob. Second thing was that it felt really secure in the rear, contrary to what I had read about the Altitude. It also absorbs the big hits really well on the front. In comparison with the Element, the wheel size wasn't really noticeable. The only downside I had was a loss of stability through really soft sand, but this may also be due tires/pressures. Overall, love this bike so far and hopefully will be as good as my Element, I will report back when I have more miles on it!

    Mavic Crossmax ST (with Maxxis Ardent tires)

    KS LEV dropper post
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    Easton Havoc 50mm stem
    Easton Haven Carbon bars

    Instinct 999 MSL glamour shot, the sun came out, it was a bit of a surprise. I was happy enough that the rain had stopped and made a ride feasible, the sunshine was just icing on the cake.

    Nice build. I don't dare to go 160mm in front. How does it ride?

    Current setup of my altitude:



    The 2.4 Ardent worked very well in the mud and over wet roots.
    Changed the stem from a 70mm x4 thomson to a 50mm sunline v-am.

    My 2013 Altitude 770. A few upgrades from stock, XX1 crank with 30 tooth sprocket, Gravity gradient bars, Gravity 50mm stem, Stans Flows EX, Schwalbe Hans Danmf, WTB Rocket V, The fork is let out to 160. I think that's it. I love this bike, I tried a good number of 275 bikes and chose the Altitude, it's just faster up and down than anything else I demo'd.

    Nice! So the fork was a spaced down to 150 from 160? I wonder if my 2014 770 is the same.

    Should be. I don't think the 14 would be any different regarding the travel and ability to space it up.

    It rides much better. With the slightly slacker head angle I got rid of the twitchyness in the steering. I wanted to slow it down a tiny bit and did exactly that. That on top of going with the 20mm axle made a great difference. The fork itself is so much better than the 2011 Rockshox I had.
