    Post your RM shots

    Can't find the old pic thread - seems to have been lost somehow (search function couldnt find it either, so unless I'm looking for the wrong thing, its gone - also, listing the board by most replies doesnt show it either, and since I remember there being alot of replies, it looks like its gone).


    So - lets see them!
    Setup shots, action pics - everything

    Mine (with me in the background) - havent got a "sat at home" pic right now to use, so this will have to do)


    Frame: ETSX-30 2007
    Fork: 32Talas
    Wheelset: Mavic Xmax enduro.
    Tires: Nokian Gazzaloddi G front, Nokian Gazzaloddi Dual rear (both heavy but grip is superb).
    Bars: Controltech Scandium Lowrise
    Stem: Sunline v1 AM
    Grips: Raceface/ODI lockon
    Brakes: Hayes HFX9-HD
    Shifters: Shimano XT
    Mechs: XT shadow rear, LX front
    Chain: KMC x9 ti-ni
    Crank: Raceface rideXC
    Seatpost: Thompson inline
    Saddle: wtb pure



    Just one more pic (from last tuesdays ride, like the one above is), just because I love the pic.

    Ah, the black run at Llandegla Mr EnglishT, nice1, it's my local trail centre.

    Here's one of me at Glentress last week, not bad for a fat 42yo!

    if you look really closely you'll see that I have lost the back suspension pivot bolt!!! luckily the inner bolt stayed put...only noticed when we got back to the carpark and judging by earlier photo's it was like that all day!
    Could of been really nasty (bike is only 2 mths old so when I get the replacement bolt, I will be putting threadlock on all the pivots)

    WTF…that’s like the 5th massive photo thread to disappear from Mtbr, the amount of disappearing porno has gone beyond a joke now.

    Link to the Flickr Rocky Mountain Bikes group.

    Haven't ridden mine since January but I don't think I've posted these before...

    Guess we have to rebuild. . .this was one of the first shot of my bike in 2004. From my local ride in the hills above Glendale, CA with downtown Los Angeles in the distance. I am over on the right coast now and riding here is all xc, plunking around in the woods. The second picture was taken recently before I lowered the seat a bit and tried out a set of CD Acid 2s.

    I must say R.U - I love the paintjob on that one. Even though I'm no fan of carbon (refuse to ride it), I have to admit that its beautiful.

    I love the way that even the "custom paint" sticker has been carefully done - the font matches the one RM uses, classy

    That's a few months ago from the cccx dh in salinas, ca.

    Bike is pretty much the same right now, save a difference rear wheel/brake setup because of a recent collision with a Norco Bulldozer...

    Oh and I pitched the front mech and went single.

    Oh and I modified an old deore rear mech to be ultra-short caged to give the chain a fighting chance of staying on.

    Oh and I wrecked the cheapie bb finally (lasted a year!) so theres a supposedly stronger one in there as of last week.

    I do all my own work and have had the bike since it was new way back in 2000. It's a little whippy by todays standards but imo the lateral flex does not really affect handling. Just a sweet bike and I can tell it was made with love.

    Well, this thing is as far as anything from "Rocky Mountain" as it gets. This was my past hobby/lifestyle before I started riding again... Currently needs an interior done, but I'm probably going to sell it. Not my thing any more. Life's funny that way.

    Made use of an old frame and some old parts (had to buy some new parts too). This is now my spare bike or something for visitors to ride. 2002 Switch @ 32lbs.

    You can still get some carbon for the fork I just ordered a Bontrager XXX stem for my Instinct. Then I'd have almost as much carbon as you do.

    Oddly enough the Durin (1450gms) is lighter than the DT Swiss XMC-100 fork (1510gms), or I would have considered it. The 28.6mm stanchions on the XRC forks are just a bit too light for me. The A2C height on the XMC-100 is also unusually tall at 480mm compared to 473mm for most other 100mm forks.

    You can get the nice light carbon top cap here.

    Hey, my F80X is being really clunky. Enough to the point that it's unsettling the front end down bumpy hills.

    How do you like the Durin? do you know how the automatic damping system work? I'm hoping to find something similar to a terralogic, but I HATE manual lock outs.

    The Durin Race is the most supple 100mm fork I've ever ridden, super plush and it just irons out chatter and even gravel chatter. But if you hammer out of the saddle you'd want a manual lockout. From all accounts the Durin SL is more like the SID Team in damping, so not as plush but workable for out of the saddle.
