    Just an update. I sold my Heckler and move over to a Blur. The Blur is perfect for the local stuff where I am.

    I'm just about to finish a '12 Heckler and start riding again. I tried out a couple of 29ers, but I really prefer the quicker steering of 26" bikes.

    Giant trance x 2012. Feels way more fun than the 29er version. I do however covet 650b and it will probably be the direction I go next year if I decide to get a new bike.
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Owning both 26" and 29" bikes, I have come to the conclusion that a 29er is awesome if you just want to go fast roll over stuff, but a 26" bike is awesome if you actually want to "ride" the trail.

    Riverview, Fl I currently ride a Pivot 5.7 and before that rode a Trance.
    Im big and slow, why should I follow the crowd and ride a bike that makes me bigger and slower?

    @WarBoom - that 5.7 looks slick! Your setup is very close to my new Blur LT. I'll post it up here shortly.

    @Beachtyme - did you ride the 8hrs of Pine Log last year? That bike looks very familiar.

    @drjay9051 - sick color! Is that a Hammerschmidt?

    Yup. That is the Hammerschmidt. I have mixed emotions. On the one hand I have essentially 2 chainrings in one. It is pretty beefy with a built in bashguard.

    On the other hand: When I shift into "overdrive" (equivalent to larger chainring) there is perceived drag. Not sure why. Also I find that 99% of the time I use the smaller ring for my riding. Like all bikes having more than a 1x there is overlap and I just don't find it necessary to find that "sweet spot" on the larger ring.

    Same with my new 29 hardtail. Mostly small chainring but on occasion i use larger ring just because...

    I guess I'm the perfect candidate for a 1x system.

    So long story short: It is Hammerschmidt.

    Where in the Southeast are you riding? I don't think I've seen a Hammerschmidt setup down here. I've been running 1x9 with guide for about a year and half and love it. Its a great light, simple setup for the region. A few of the climbs up in AL and GA are tough, but I could probably remedy that by putting on a 30t ring instead of my 32t for those trips.

    Here is my BlurLT:

    Ocala, Fl. The Hammerschmidt gets some attention.. Funny when you tell people it's like 2 chainrings in one. You get an odd look.

    Where are you?

    Nope, that bike was just built up recently and has yet to see the trails.
