    Love seeing all the pics! We just got back from a trip to Bellingham so I thought I'd post a few shots.

    *50mm atlas AM stem
    *Alas AM bars
    *Holzfeller cranks
    *Howitzer BB
    *Truvativ Shiftguide (roller)
    *Transition step down pedals
    *rp23 shock
    *White bontragar grips












    The pitch never skipped a beat! We followed DH guys and even went on a 10 mile loop with a friendly local that races xc. I certainly wasn't as fast as them, but it wasn't the pitch slowing me down.

    Anybody have any idea if the ISCG mounts on the pitch are old or 05?

    Thinking about going 1x9 but am away from my bike at the moment.

    My Recent upgrades

    Hey fellow pitch owners. Well, I pretty much damaged my stock Shimano deore cranks when I bashed the pedal and crank hard on a rock coming down the trail the other day. This gave me an excuse to upgrade so it worked out. I ended up buying the 09 SLX Shimano crankset off ebay and I think this should be a nice upgrade from the stock Deores. The reviews on MTBR for the SLX's are great so I'm expecting them to be a great addition. I also ordered the straitline pedals to go with them since my CB 50/50 pedal got bent up also. Either way, I'm thinking this should be a nice addition to my awesome pitch! I'm thinking about a wheelset next. I've heard good things about Mavic Crossride rims so I might have to look into those.

    Any other suggestions on rims would be appreciated.

    Great suggestion. These have a 4.3 rating on here and sound really nice. They weigh 1579g whereas the Mavic Crossride UB Wheelset 2009 weigh in at 1750g. So that's about 1/3lb difference. However, they look to be quite a bit more expensive than the Mavics. Haven't searched much but they look to be $500+ which is quite a bit out of my range right now. If I can find em for a good deal on ebay or something I might go for these. The Mavic's are still sounding pretty good. Need to do some more research. Also, these stock rims have to be pretty crappy because they make quite a bit of twangy sound and dent easily. Still holding up for now though. I'm figuring it wouldn't take much to improve over the stock wheelset.

    the DT swiss 445D rims on the Pitch are also found on the 09 stumpjumper HT and other bikes.. not the most aggressive rims our there
    yeah roval wheels are pretty expensive, but come with a lifetime warranty and the hubs, spokes, etc are very nice
    maybe a wheelset from BWW would suit you as well

    They are bombproof, the rear hub clicks nicely, and the front hub converts easily. They are also really cheap. They are heavy though, and the weight is felt. I am considering upgrading to a lighter set in the future. I think the anodized grey would look great

    Yea ive been doing some web browsing and heres what i came up with (As far a weight)
    Outlaw Wheelset 2452 Grams
    Revolution AM 2070 Grams +$70 from outlaws
    Mavic Crossline 2045 Grams close to double the price of outlaws.
    So im thinking im going to go with the Revolution AM but ill prob. change my mind 100 times before i actually buy a new wheelset

    Have to give high marks to the Crossmax ST. Gave mine a proper testing by casing a 14 ' gap- pretty much a 6' drop to a dirt square edge. Not bad for an "enduro" wheelset
    .Yes I did a big time endo/faceplant but the bike was fine.
    The amazing thing was the groove the rim left in the ground- looked like a naked rim had made it.. which is kinda hard with a 2.35 Nevegal wrapped around it

    anyway at approx 1500g per set and on sale at Price Point for $600/set they are hard to beat, I especially like the super HUGE but super light Zicral spokes

    Awesome pics! That's some real riding right there. Seriously cool stunts.

    [SIZE="1"]Not to be a second father, but a helmet (preferably full face) would be a good investment[/SIZE]

    You got to admit he must be a smooth rider to not destroy his bike (Wheels/X-Fusion shock) on that last drop.

    Agreed. But one day those wheels are going to fail on one of his drops and I'm afraid that might be it for him.
