    Overall, they were all good changes. The new Crossmark climbs far better than a 50%-worn Ignitor, and the extra sweep on the bars is nice. As far as the forks go, there isn't much difference, but the P2 seems to 'buzz' a bit less on big hits.
    I'd like to see more pictures of this please!

    Speaking of smiling, my new Karate Monkey is providing plenty of smiles for me since I built it up on Friday...

    Point taken with regard to the full suspension portion of my signature. Now removed...and the back is doing fine thanks to the Racing Ralph 2.4, forgiveness of steel and using my limbs as suspension. Not to worry - all my other bikes have built in cushion.

    Just finished this up last night. I will be changing the saddle over to a Gobi (road saddle was on the post I am using). Also will change out the "test" pedals on there now, lol.

    Came in around 23 lbs.

    Old Bike... New Post

    Recently rebuilt my Karate Monkey and included a little suspension up front. I am not a label junkie so I removed all that I could and then gave it a good mud bath on my last ride. Happy Trails all!

    New Niner One 9 to replace pink Niner Air 9 SS. No more tensioner!! I also added a Raceface stem and carbon bar to help me stretch out a bit. Huge difference!

    Just finished it up today. My 20 year old mountain bike from Performance Bike shops. Originally it was 100% Suntour XC LTD component group and it all still works well. There are a few updates including the Shimano Cranks, shorter reach stem and wider rise bars. I just added some new V-Brakes to replace the old Cantilevers. This one was a little more difficult to convert. The bike has an old Suntour Accushift 7 speed cassette, but a couple of DIY parts and some ebay shopping I got the pieces I needed. Used and old road derailleur modified for a tensioner until I can get a proper one. Currently running a 32x20 combination, the 21 tooth was perfect for the chain without a tensioner, but just to low a gear. I will experiment with a couple of combinations to try and find that magic ratio.


    The before picture.

    I bet this Freehub doesn't look too familiar.
    The Suntour Freehub.

    The DIY Spacers. Found info on making somewhere on this board

    The finished hub conversion. I used the 14t cog to backup the PVC spacers to the hub. the final cog is the lockring as well on these setups

    I missed my old Monocog and a friend of mine was selling one at a price I can't pass up. I plan to replace the 36x16 with 32x20 and put some knobby tires on. I think I might want to put a suspension fork on there too once I figure out the right kind for SS'ing. Allow me to introduce you guys to my new to me Fudge Brownie Monocog.

    Nice and straight. But still working the combo to try and eliminate a tesioner.
