    Uh oh! Bad move!

    You should have kept the Carve and bought the Epic, outright!

    Nice bike!

    Thanks!

    I have not told my wife but I think I want a Niner next Spring so I will end up with two bikes anyway!

    I'm normally a 29er rider, but I had some 26" wheels left over from a swap meet deal, a new fork from an aborted 650B project... so why not pick up a frame to make a new bike? 26" stuff seems to be going cheap these days, and I like this bike better than the 29er FS bikes I've ridden--they start getting too long and slow, but this is still pretty nippy.





    I love that pierced seat tube, there's some really nice details on this frame. So much nicer than a generic rocker link:


    I'm actually really enjoying this bike. Kind of surprising, since my bias is towards rigid/29er/single speed. A nice change of pace!

    Two trails actually. Rifle Arch Trail, Rifle, CO and Mine Shaft, Silt, CO. The arch trail is a hike and bike and the other is a rarely if ever ridden 4X4 trail, steep walls and big drops!

    My brand new Rockhopper 29! Wonderful bike in almost every aspect but the cranks are worse quality than my '08 Trek 4300...

    My 2013 Rockhopper XL

    What do ya'll think of my custom paint job?

    Go easy on me. I did it myself.

    Sorry for the blurry pics. I had a Lifeproof case on my phone.

    Very nice bike!

    Just a couple of things so far:

    Fox 32 Float 100 CTD w/ Trail Assist, QR15 (best upgrade BY FAR combined with the wheel)
    Notubes ZTR FlowEX front wheel (tubeless)
    Easton EA70 mid-rise Monkeybar (I didn't like the 720mm flat handlebars so I went with 680mm riser)
    Easton Flatboy pedals (pedals for life, yo)
    Conti MountainKing Protection 2.2's (going to switch to Schwalbe Hans Dampf next season I think)

    Aside from putting on a wider seat for my big ass, that's about it.

    The new fork and wheel dropped about 3 1/2 pounds off the bike (31 before the upgrade, 27.6 after).

    Next on the list is a new rear wheel; I'll probably save another pound there at least. After that I'm going to re-evaluate whether or not I want to stick to the hardtail or go with a full-suspension.

    If I stick with it, I'll be looking at getting a set of XT brakes from a good friend + some new rotors, and maybe a new drivetrain.

    so, you bought a fantastic trail shredder, just to make it into a crosscountry sissymobile?

    Yup, isn't she pretty? Actually, I've taken the Stumpy out 4x on technical trails over the past 4 weekends and at first, I would cringe when I hit a stump, checked for scratches...pretty sad, I know, but I just clean her up really well after each ride, but trust me she's got some battle scars...what's your ride like?
