    It's old school. Rock shox first suspension post. No spring, nylon rod that compresses. Works surprisingly well. Not a thud buster, but weighs about half of that. Doesn't work miracles, but it does let me sit more often.

    I guess it's about time I post pics of mine. I love her to death, but she may be for sale. I'm considering getting a Fuel EX instead...

    I've replace just about every Bontrager piece on this bike except for the rear through-axle.

    Why are you thinking about switching? I ask because I am torn between a remedy and a fuel at the moment.

    This is something I don't understand, but seems to be a theme through out this whole MTBR forum. Why is it that new bike owners are quick to replace 90% of their bike parts including tires after purchasing a brand new bike? Not to pick on you, but it looks like you haven't even ridden this bike yet. Seems to me, that one would ride the heck out of a new bike, like I do, and replace parts as they break or wear out? What am I missing?

    Hates money. Likes bike bling. I would hazard a guess to say that better than 50% of purchases for replacement are for products who's useful life has not been consumed. I am/have been guilty of this practice. Now I will still replace stuff when I get a new bike. See my Hifi above.
    I swapped out @ POS:
    Handlebars because I didn't "get" the 17* big sweeps for a carbon Crank Brothers Cobalt
    Wheels from Bontrager Race X Lite for a more sensible (my opinion) Sun Ringle Disc-O-Flea - they were used.
    Seatpost from the hefty mast that was installed to a lying around Thompson w/ Setback

    I did leave a lot of 'not-too-sexy' components on it that work just fine including all of the drivetrain and the not-bling-at-all bontrager RXL stem.

    Long and the short - a lot of that stuff is just jewelery for dudes. Can't point fingers without pointing back @ myself. I am guilty too. To your point (and you do have a valid one) I don't even belong on a $3600 bike - the thing is, my wife lets me do it and who am I to say no.

    Lastly, try not to judge too much based on what the picture shows. My bike in the photo is new too... I assure you it doesn't look like that any more.
    I posted a photo once of my dog filthy after he'd just dug a hole in the back yard - suddenly I was an animal abuser. I thought it was funny because he was out there for just a couple of minutes before it happened (maybe 5 minutes - I let him out and then went to drop a deuce) and he's never dug holes before. People were calling for me to give up my dog because it didn't look like I took care of him... he needed to get out (and do dog things)- he was in his kennel for a good part of the day. BTW - no one said anything about him being in a kennel for the day which is what I am concerned about... not all the time is it about what you see.

    more or less i would consider swapping out some parts would be more of a personalization it many ways more than a direct need. I have done my pedals just cuz im not huge on spd the seat cuz i kinda tore up the stock on and i went from nobby tires to some more urban friendly burly tires. just a thought

    My first mountain bike <a href="http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/mountain/sport/4_series/4300_disc#/us/en/model/features?url=us/en/bikes/mountain/sport/4_series/4300_disc">Trek 4300 Disc</a> - I biked 2 miles on the <a href="http://www.pbase.com/smith_xt/image/134703764">off road trails</a> this morning and it was very wet from raining in the night, then 10 miles on the Trace.
    Not bad for someone who's <a href="http://www.pbase.com/smith_xt/image/125291175">pelvis was broken in four places</a> almost this time last year.

    My bone-stock 2004 Trek 4900. This is my first foray into cycling in nearly 18 years but the first ride with my son today was amazing! The body mechanics all came back to me like I'd just been riding yesterday.

    Once I have a better feel for what I want out of this rig, I'll start upgrading....

    Oh, the one thing that really surprised me was how solid the front brake grabbed. Nearly stood myself up on the nose the first time I four-fingered it!

    Nice. Be careful with that kickstand offroad though, or you might break your new pelvis. I'd take it off unless you really need it.

    Yeah its been taken off since that photo was taken along with the reflectors too ... ... I was actually taking it rather easy on the trails but hoping to get out in the morning.

    Rode 5 miles this morning and the Pelvis is holding up well. Never thought I'd be biking this time last year.

    Do any of you know which trek model's start getting double walled wheels? I just bought a 3500 and might trade it in for the 3900 but i'm pretty sure they are still single walled. Is it worth the extra 150 bucks?

    changed brakes to BB7's 185MM fr / 160MM R, Avid SD Ti brake levers, Shimano SLX crankset w BB. Race Face Sixc carbon bars, Bontrager racelite stem, Cane Creek headset, HT AN01 pedals, Thomson seat post, Jagwire ripcord brake and shifter cables, Stan's tubeless. the mount is by TIGRA. http://www.amazon.com/Tigra-Technolo.../dp/B004IE0RWK i have an ipod so no GPS. there arent any good apps for me. there are apps that work well with iphone. just need to search the app store. when i use the mount now i have it on the stem. it comes off easily. so only have it on there when really needed.

    Just wanted to make a suggestion...
    If you quote someone, best if you remove the links to their photos (Links are anything between the tags.). If not, we will be looking at the same photos over and over and over.

    My "08" 6000. Only upgrades so far are tires and grips. The saddle is next and then what ever wears out or breaks first.

    Man, thats quite a lot of changes. What did that cost you to make those upgrades? (If you don't mind me asking)...?

    Somebody mentioned selling a Remedy to get Fuel EX... wondering why? I'm actually considering those two as well for my next purchase. Both look like great bikes.

    Sweet ride, nice build! Those pedals though, they are as about out of place as mud flaps on my Ferrari Spider. Some nice XTR SPDs would finish the package up real nice! Just saying...

    Which "Trek" model is closely related to the Specialized Hardrock?

    I would think the Marlin and maybe the Mamba? Similar to the Rockhopper and Rockhopper Comp 29?

    My 2011 Trek Gary Fisher Wahoo is a little closer to the Specialized Rockhopper, I was looking at the Specialized Hardrock myself, but all my LBS's in my area said if I could afford hydraulic disc brakes do it, and the Wahoo/ Trek 4300 were cheaper with better parts (100 mm fork, hyrdraulic disc) so that sealed the deal on the buy, and I love my Wahoo. Had family in town so haven't been out on the trails as much as I'd like the last 2 weeks, but I am going to hit them hard!

    The new 2012 Mamba is pretty nice, in the $900-$1000 range, does that match the Hardrock price points?

    This would probably do better as it's own thread. It's not really polite to hijack a thread.

    I have finally upgraded my bike to a 1 x 10 (28t front chainring for our Florida trails) using a Widgit chainring / bashguard / chain-guide assembly. Last upgrade... I hope.
    P.S.
    Bought the Widgit in black and painted it gold. Expensive, but simple. No guides to adjust, Just had to very slightly grind the inside of it and very slightly grind the weld on my chainstay to get the clearance. Working great now.

    Polished Trek Fuel EX8

    Hey boys and girls...

    Just finished rebuilding a Trek EX8. Got the bike cheap... paint was trashed. Decided to strip the bike down and polish the frame. Rebuilt from the ground up with lots of new parts... looks good, rides even better.

    Man, a lot of these pictures you all are using the Shimano SPD pedals. Anyone here using Crank Brothers Eggbeaters, wondering how they look on these fine Trek bikes.

    only saw one other Trek Fuel 70 in this thread... so im not sure if thats agood or bad.. i got mine for free. 2005-06 model.. pretty much stock as far as i know.. definately want a more comfy saddle and need a riser handlebar since this frame is just a little to small for me... but its my first mountain bike.. and i really like it.. needs some fine tuning on the deraileurs then itll run perfect... but so far it hasnt seen a trail with me.. just street riding and some playing in yard till i feel im ready to head down the trails

    Hey guys,
    Can someone with an '10 or '11 Remedy do me a favor and measure the EVO link main pivot( where it bolts to the seat tube). A outer edge to outer edge measure would be great.
    I have an '08 Remedy and am trying to use a new DRCV shock. This requires a newer EVO link and I'm trying to verify this will work if I can get the swing arm. Trek people tell me it can't be done(probably so I buy new bikes), but I met a guy that did this to his Fuel EX so I want to find out if it will work for the Remedy. I've got a new DRCV shock sitting on my table...needs to be used!
    My measure is 70mm at the stated point(may be off a tad). So far all other measures seem the same minus where the shock connects...is wider due to the larger canister.
    Thanks for the help!

    Actually have posted elsewhere and received no response about what I'm trying to do--I assume it gets lost in the shuffle. And it's obvious there are plenty of Remedy owners stopping by this thread and I figured I could get some brotherly love/help by one person taking 30 seconds to post the measurement...my question would then be answered and my "hijacking" would be done and the posts could even be deleted...doesn't seem like a huge deal.

    Been a while since i got a bike shot up, just got my new brakes on (XT) to replace the Promax Hornet. HUGE upgrade imo. Also, got some more blue bits to go with my Orange and Blue theme (Yes, im a Gator). Lots of upgrades, only thing from original bike is Frame, fork and the FD/RD. Weighed in at 24.68lbs. Really love this bike.
