    New Superfly 100 Owner 9new pics)

    Sup guys! Been rocking a completely rebuilt K2 Shadow Nine 29er hardtail since May but it just wasn't doing it for me anymore. After doing some hardier, rockier very tech singletrack and hiking trails I was longing for a full suspension. Picked up a 2012 Superfly 100 carbon last night on closeout at my local Trek. Went in looking for a Rumblefish but after seeing this with the suspension/drivetrain I wanted and being carbon for only ~$600 more, I couldn't pass it up.



    Not planning to change much but I swapped over my Answer Rove XC 70mm stem and Answer Protaper 685mm bars from my previous build. Might throw on some 180mm rotors depending on how the Elixer 7's do with the 160's once broken in (accustom to 185mm BB7's). Very pleased with the bike so far, excited to see what it can do.

    Definitely is quick. Even though it's a suspension frame it's much smoother and faster than my hardtail on the road. Recovering from a wrist injury so I haven't gotten to take it on any trails yet. Very excited to see how it does on the tech sections and climbs.

    Thank you! Just ordered a few small Hope items to help set it off and get the bars situated so I can cut the steerer tube. Eventually will swap the hubs to Hope Pro 2's as they now make a 142x12. Beyond that, as long as I don't go thru too many frames I'll be happy

    Actually the nose has been tilted down since the pic in the OP. The geometry/saddle on my K2 was comfortable with the nose up, but this bike is more comfortable with the seat flat.

    With the seat, its best to have it about flat/neutral....but thats once you've got your weight on it....Unweighted it should be slightly nose down.
