    Hardrock Disc 2011

    Hey guys. Just went ss and I love it! I've been riding ss on the street but thought it might be nuts on the trails, then I realized shifting is slowing me down. Plus the power goes right down, it's awesome! Anyway this is a before and after of my Hardrock disc. Upgraded to BB7 calipers and Speed Dial 7 levers and they are the business. I'll probably get an ss frame eventually, no chainslap so far with the yess tensioner.Tried to find the magic gear, used online calculators, bought a bunch of chain rings and no luck. Currently 34:16.

    Nice! Did you paint, powder-coat or anodize the frame?

    Thanks! Yea I just did a rattle can job. Satin black always lays down evenly and I've used it on a few bikes.

    Did you strip the frame down to bare metal or just roughen it up a bit?

    Just sanded off the clear. This is the third bike I've done and the other ones have held up pretty well so far. The big name company's bikes are just too gaudy for me most of the time lol.

    I repainted my old Diamondback and did 3 coats of primer, 3 coats of colour and 2 coats of clear - and it's falling to pieces. Didn't use enamel. Thinking of stripping and polishing it to a mirror shine now though.....now where can I find 3 whole days in which to do it in????

    If you have something good to strip it with give it a shot. I tried that once w/o paint stripper, just sanding and gave up. Finding somebody with a sand blaster would be best probably.

    I did a frame recently as a practise project and it turned out nice. It's about 30 hours of work though. The stripping goes quick - 3 to 4 hours and all the paint's off. It's the sanding with 320, 600, 800, 1200 grit waterpaper and the polishing that really takes the most time.

    Here's the before pic - before I get accused of not sticking to the topic of this thread - it has a rigid CF fork now - but that paint's gotta go!

    Nice, though I see some new parts in your future:
    Handlebar (white is the easiest to find)
    Grips (Red, white or blue ESI's)
    Crankset/Bash (Race Face has colors available)
    Brake housing (an easy fix)
    After all that is completed we can address the hub situation.

    Note: No need for a colored chain as that might be over the top.

    Wow, that's a big cog. Almost looks like a 1:1 ratio!
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Yup, the cog is 24 and the ring is a 32, I am old and I have some pretty serious climbing to do on front range near my home.

    Nice Vassago 1SPD

    This is the best pic I've seen of your ride. You must be out riding more since you post less these days.

    Trying out a Kona steel fork on the Access. So far I am enjoying this shift backwards in technology. Bike feels more planted and responsive.

    Just did this bikes first ever in the history of its life spring overhaul so I figured now would be a good time to take pictures. Not much has changed since last year except I swapped the brakes, chain ring and bash guard from my other less ridden bike that happens to have 26" wheels and also lowered the stem. Also, I hoped to have my new custom made one of a kind drop out chain tensioners installed today but the guy who made them couldnt come by today. So sometime this week expect a thread about those which will for sure be pretty awesome.

    Put new tires, bars, stem and post clamp on the monkey. It's sexy and I love it. Most fun bike I've ridden hands down..

    I LOVE this bike. I've found myself wanting to ride it more than my Geared FS trail bike. Maybe it's because my only set of pedals is on this bike, or maybe it's super fun to ride!

    many will say run it under the chain, so more chain wraps around the cog (increased contact)

    That's what I figured... I just didn't know if theres too much slack to be taken up to run it that way.

    Lol, no kidding. I move out in a month, well back to my parents for a bit, but then I'm looking for an upgrade this winter with more space.
