    I have a Dart3 & a firm spring. But I wonder how well it will work for me (superclyde) . it's only for EZ Trails though. Might work.

    I got first, but I should qualify it. It was a 55 mile ride w/ 4000 ft. of climbing and then about a 10 mile race from the base of the mountain back to the finish line. After 55 miles and 4000 ft. of climbing, the last thing you want to do is race somewhere..haha.

    My Reken weighs in at about 25 lbs. It is way lighter than all of my friends' bikes and flies up hills with little effort. It works great for MTB racing and I even used it for a 'cross race.

    Any red reken builds?

    I am thinking of doing a surprise build for my wife for Christmas. I was thinking the red frame with XT drive train, white stroker trails, Manitou R7 elite, and all white accoutrements. I would love to see anything similar before I pull the trigger. Even if it is red with a black cockpit it'll give me a decent frame of reference. Right now she is on a stock Trek 3700 and really starting to like riding. I have a feeling the build I described about will be quicker than a hiccup and will be a lot of fun for her to ride. Any thoughts? Thanks guys.

    I will soon have a reken and it will be built as such:
    Black 20" Reken frame,
    Black White Brother Magic 100 fork
    Specialized S-Works Carbon flat bar or Monkey Lite Carbon 1" riser
    FSA XC-300 wheels w/ kenda karma 2.0 tires (tubeless)
    X0 short cage rear derailleur
    Shim LX crank
    Sram 990 cassette
    Hope Mono Mini hydro brakes
    black headset (chris king)
    esi black grips
    x0 twist shifter
    Thomson black seat post
    black rocket saddle

    it'll be basically murdered out and should be around 24-25# when all is said and done. I'll post a pic when I get it built up next week.

    What's keeping your chain from dropping off the chainring?

    I will it to stay so it does

    I had a N-Gear Jump stop on there but my chain never dropped so I took it off. Been riding more than a few times since then with no issues. I think it stays because my setup dont suck The Salsa SS ring combined with my X.9 Short Cage seems to keep the chain well planted in place threw all 9 gears in the back.

    It will be mostly stock mid grade stuff from my Giant XTC2. Budget is too tight to upgrade much else at this point.

    Here is my 16" Reken. I finished her up yesterday. I took the parts from my 1999 Mt Tam. It feels like the Mt Tam is lighter but I feel more control on the Reken due to it's geometry.

    My friend ride a 2001 or something silver/blue MT Tam and his bike is super light but it was like a $1,500 bike new.

    They are not supposed to, so I doubt anyone has tested. You could try it, and let us know how it goes
