    Heres my setup. Vintage titanium frame with a downhill front end haha. This pic was just before i installed the brakes so don't think i have no front brake haha. Out of curiosity, what "type" of mountain bike would this be considered? aka XC, AM, freeride etc. I plan on using it for high speed trail bombing in the south bay area and some santa cruz trails. Ive been out of the mountain bike scene for a few years so i have to start slow on some easy trails first

    It would be a frankenbike. as it is a mishmash of parts from various disciplines that won't work well together, but will work together.

    As for the frame, it's a Cross Country frame. that is all it will ever be. and it appears it may be a rather nice one.

    It is super front heavy, feels like a tank, but it can take a drop off like a downhill bike lol and thats why i built it. Not planning on climbing much obviously. This is just temporary until i can afford a nicer frame. However the feel of the titanium is amazing so i will probably keep this one forever. Someday i want a santa cruz chameleon.

    Yeah, even though Titanium is the magical jesus metal of perfection that has no flaws ever and can never be destroyed because it's magic.

    What you've built here is not really designed to be "hucked" and may fail you. being Titanium you may not get a warning when it snaps.

    My personal recommendation is ride it like a cross country bike until you get a heavier duty frame. then start hitting the drop offs. lest you loose a rather nice, if dated frame.

    I totally see what you're saying, and i never really planned on taking it somewhere where there is any crazy drop offs. im looking mainly to hit some burms, and go fast over small obstacles. I got a smokin deal on the fork and couldnt pass it up. $140 for a rebuilt fox 36 haha

    Do be cautious. That frame was not designed to run a long travel fork. Best case, it handles like sh!t. Worst case, you shear the head tube off. Do it justice and put an 80mm fork on it.

    Yeah like i said this is just temporary until i can afford a frame for the fork. I just happened to come across a frame and fork for good prices at the same time, and had no other bike.. This frame will probably get a rigid fork once that happens. Im riding the bike on well maintained multi use trails at the most extreme, so i feel confident the head tube can withstand the use for now.

    Got this cool seatpost - syntace claims it gives about an inch of front to back motion, and that is about what it felt like bouncing off the speed bumps. Can't wait to try it on the trails

    Here in the UK we'd likely call that a 'trail bike', go (most) anywhere, handle (most) anything but not really intended for hucks and big drops or jumps. AM always seems a daft name, there are plenty of places on mountains I've been to that I wouldn't take a bike.

    The frame was made only for factory sponsored racers with special rear dropouts for single speed.

    And no I am not anywhere close to a factory rider.

    Where do you ride? I have the same bike and the terrain looks familiar.

    That is gorgeous.

    Do the funky seatstays give the back a bit of "cushion"?

    Yes Ted, for sure. The 'reverse curved' seat stays have proven to add some propulsion out of turns, berms and pump-bumps - and it's a super comfy ride. Just did a 70+ mile race on her and have zero complaints. Rocks the downhills like mad too.

    I cobbled this together with parts on hand. Just a couple of rides on the MUP so far...feels pretty solid.

    my 69er is gone in favor of a genesis fortitude. lovely bike. the original build is reasonable, i.e. quite good. but I had nicer parts on the 69er. so they went on.
    since the photo bar, stem and grips were changed as well.

    only thing I don't like is the flattened seat tube. I can see why they did it, but that makes it impossible to drop the seat down.
