    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
