    Post your Trek/Fisher/Klein

    I know there has been some posts in the past like "Post your Sugar or Fuel" but I wanted to start a thread to post my 8500. Even if you have posted your bike in the past I'd like to see it and get to know some of the people.

    Here is my Trek 8500 stock right after I got it from the shop. I'll post some more later when I change some things out and scratch it up.

    Hey Jman,

    I love your bike; I used to have a Trek Hard Tail 8900SL? I just sold it but I always loved that bike and it wasnt spec'd half as nice as yours. Must be a blast to ride, enjoy.

    I just got the ride earlier this week. I haven't got to do anything but road riding on it, and I had the fork on lockout, so I haven't got familiar with anything but the shifting. I plan to be out all day tomorrow and Sunday on the trails riding this beauty. I can't imagine how much of a difference it is going to be from my 02 4500.

    This is also stock right now. I have been pinching pennies for a year to get this bike so I haven't got much of accessories. I am about about to order a Hydrapak (far past tired of using my water bottles), Lizardskins chainstay protector, and possibly some Fire XCs (never had them). I thought about being different and a little wild by putting a red tire on the front, and a blue one on the back lol. Hey, that combo would still match my bike right?

    Again, like Spaz said not as hot as NJFUELGUY's, but I love it!!

    One more.


    P.S. NJFUELGUY, you do not have too much red. I would not change it. Too cool!!

    Have a great weekend my fellow mtnbikers.

    Thank you. Not bad for a newbie. This is all I have. Unfortunately I do not own a digital camera. I had to borrow the one I used to take these. Maybe some day. Here is a like with all the pics I have. How about you? Any more pics of yours?

    My Fuel 80

    Here are a few of my Fuel 80. So far, I've changed out the pedals for Crank Bros. Candies, the saddle for a WTB Speed V Race, and the fork for a Duke SL U-Turn. and sime Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires. This week, my new wheels with disc hubs and my Avid mech disc brakes arrive.

    The poor baby is bored and raring to go...


    Now, she's in her element, getting some fresh air!!!

    update

    Well - Here is my Fuel 98 after a few months of modifications. I put a pair of Formula B4s (couple with AMclassic/Velocity wheels) on it, got rid of the little nub of a stem I had, and fit the bike with a set of Nokian tires. Honestly- they all made a perfect bike a little better. Funny thing is my epic doesn't even compare (and is subsequently for sale). Once you have the opportunity to ride both, the epic feels sluggish. Another mechanic at work picked up a 98 and feels the exact same way-and wants me to list his epic on Ebay!! Hopefully- Trek won't change the Fuel too much.

    My first bike. Logged hundreds of miles on it. I fell in love with mt biking because of it. I upgraded to FS a month ago, but will always keep it. Hey--it's my old friend, how could I get rid of it??

    Quite possibly the blingiest (and oddest combination of parts) Trek 4300 you'll see.

    Stock parts:
    Trek 4300 19.5" frame, crap fork, seatpost and seat, SRAM 5.0 cassette, anything else not listed below.

    Upgrades:
    Avid disc brakes
    Avid SD7 brake levers
    Alexrims TD17 wheels, Mutanoraptor tires
    XT derailleurs (new front, oldskool rear)
    some old Shimano 8spd triggers
    LX crankset
    PC58 chain
    Cheap metal platform pedals (hey, better than nylon ones)
    Ritchey WCS handlebar, stem, grips
    I think that's it.

    Future:
    Ritchey WCS seatpost, a nicer seat
    MOST DEFINITELY a new fork.


    Note: Yes, I realize there's no shifter cables. Plus the brake cables are too long. This was right after putting the Ritchey parts on.
    Overall view:


    The Ritchey bling-bling:


    Oldskool XT derailleur and Avid disc:

    Here's my latest build of my Fuel 90, although I have since added a new set of Wheels/Tyres







    Now I'm just waiting for Trek to relaese some sort of Pimp VPP or Proper 4 Bar design before I upgrade the frame. Looks like none for this year though!

    Here's a couple to add.

    Here is my 03 pal, and my girls 02 sugar. The only stock parts on mine are the cranks,and the rear der. Her's has been upgraded with hayes mags and a fox float rear. First one is us in Moab this spring, on Klondike Bluffs for a warm up, second is my pal right after she was built, but I swapped to a 6" rotor before I rode it, and third is my girlfriends sugar GS on our local trail early this spring.

    Here's mine... before and after.

    Hey all, my first time here in the area.

    So... got a 2001 Sugar 1 in 2002.


    And then after a while, some modifications were in order.

    I have an XCE for trailbike duties, so this was built mostly as a race bike. Since I haven't been racing, I ride it when I don't want to feel snail slow!

    Just got a new 2004 Fuel 70, I wish I had saved enough for the 90 and beyond models, but so far I'm loving the 70. If anything it'll give me time to slowly upgrade as my riding improves...

    Here it is:

    A little bit late with this, but what the hell. This is/was my first ever mountain bike which I bought back in April or May of this year. It's a Fisher Advance that has gone through a few changes in recent months, largely because I kept breaking stuff on it by riding it a little too hard. I've since picked up a new bike, a Jekyll 800, and this bike has now turned into a road/training bike.

    I replaced the wheels with far stronger LX/Sun Rhyno Lites wheels. On the road, the wheels sport IRC Mythos Slick (more like semi-knobby!) tires, while trail excursions use their XC counterparts. Got a cheap deal on a Rock Shox Pilot fork, so I figured what the hell. Easton EA70 flatbar with EA50 stem (which in turn replaced a Race Face Prodigy stem). The bike's too small for me, so I tried using things like a longer seatpost, so I've got an Azonic post there which I got for cheap. Cheap is a recurring theme for upgrades on this bike.

    This bike had Eggbeaters on them before I switched them over to my new bike. They're going back on this bike 'cause they made me terribly nervous going downhill on the Jekyll. Also, the brakes were giving me nightmares, so I swapped out the original Promax pads for two pairs of Kool Stop MTB pads which have been great.

    The bike has served me well over the past three months or so, getting me totally into mountain biking. However, I outgrew the bike so quickly it's not even funny. And that's why this bike will stay with me now as a road/lite trail/training bike.

    24 Hours Of Jeanne

    Here's a pic of my humble Trek next to a now famous media icon following the 24 Hours of Jeane event recently held in South Florida. We may not have real mountains here, but there are some things about Florida you just can't get anywhere else.

    GF Sugar

    Here's my Sugar. :-)

    Frame: Gary Fisher Sugar 4+ 2004, L (19.5")
    Fork: Marzocchi Marathon S 105 mm
    Rear shock: DT Swiss SSD 210 L

    Crankset: Truvativ Stylo SL 22/32/44
    Bottom bracket: Truvativ GigaPipe SL
    Front derailleur: Shimano Deore XT FD-M760
    Rear derailleur: Shimano Deore XTR RD-M960-GS
    Cassette: Shimano Deore XT CS-M760
    Chain: SRAM PC-99

    Handlebar: Ritchey WCS Rizer cut to 630 mm
    Stem: Ritchey WCS V3 110 mm, 5&deg;
    Headset: Cane Creek S-2
    Shifters: Shimano Deore XT SL-M750
    Grips: Ritchey TrueGrip
    Gear cables: Gore RideOn
    Brakes: Magura Marta 2002
    Brake cables: Magura Steel Braided
    Pedals: Shimano PD-M959
    Saddle: WTB Rocket V Stealth
    Seatpost: Thomson Elite 410 x 31.6 mm

    Hubs: DT Swiss Hugi 240 disc

    Spokes: DT Swiss Revolution 2.0/1.5 mm
    QRs: DT Swiss
    Tyres: Hutchison Python Air Light 2.0"
    Tubes: Maxxis Ultralight

    Total weight is about 12 kg (26 lbs). I could save some grams and bucks by purchasing a lighter air fork and leaving rim brakes (the weight save would be almost 1 kg (2.2 lbs)), but decided to go heavier though. :)

    (photo is a bit outdated - the rear brake shown on the picture is Avid SD7)

    Going to repaint frame and fork black this winter. :)

    Cerberus, I hope that wasn't your Vette. If it was, I'm really sorry. we to had to endure Jeanne in the Tampa area.

    Anyways, heres mine: Trek Y-3 w/ Judy XL converted to air and and Cane creek AD-10 in the rear, LX parts, Race Face ring set, Profile DH bars, Control Tech stem, Bontrager wheels.

    The Aquafina bottle comes as a factory option with this year frame.

    I feel all alone. I have yet to see another Y frame on the board yet. Starting to make me wonder if I should buy a different frame and swap parts. LOL

    The cable routing is still internal on all cables except the rear brake cable which is external and that is what you see here. Reason for this is so you dont have to split the hydraulic circuit to route. All the new (since zr9000 alloy) Klein frames are like this. Older (gradient alloy ) Attitude's had an internal rear brake cable aswell, on my old 2001 internal cable routed Attitude Race it was an arse fit my hope rear disc brake, but looked much nicer once on!!)

    New Photos

    New Photos. Sorry, I speak only Polish and German

    Die Fahhrad ist 2004 gekauft und ich habe fast alles geandert. Lenker (Amoeba), Sattelsuetze (FSA K-Force), Barends (Amoeba) sind aus Carbon, fruher habe ich auch Sattel (Selle Italia Evo3) aus Carbon gehabt, aber ist BROKEN!!

    Felgen sind Rigida Taurus (395g), Naben XT 04, Schaltwer XTR 2004, Kasste SRAM 970 (nur fuer Winter, am Fruhling werde ich mit XT oder XTR Kassete fahren), Bremsen XT 04.

    Seit Anfang habe ich Schwirigkeiten mit CHAIN SUCK Ich muss die Kurbel (Bontrager Race) dringend aendern!

    Ausserdem bin ich (wenn geht um Klein) mit Lackierung unzufrieden

    In 2004 bin ich 6.000 km gefahren ueberall in Polen und in Tschechen.

    MfG!

    Nice to see some of the "lower end" money wise bikes on here with mucho upgrades! Makes me feel better for buying my Trek 4900 every time I see this. I plan to upgrade my 4900 similiar to what you have done with your Marlin. Nice to see I am not the only one that can't afford a higher end bike, but can afford a cheaper one and do some upgrades when need be.

    Sweet ride!

    A few more pics of my budget bike....2004 TREK 4900.

    Upgraded pedals to Crank Brothers Candy SL. Slapped on a Cateye computer and put on some IRC Notos tires since the wet Fall months are upon us. Can't be happier unless I can find a sub 4lb fork to put on it for less than $150.

    Would like to start a SS project bike this Winter too

    Here's my 2002 Gary Fisher Tassajara Disc that I use for road commuting / exercise:



    For some strange reason my Canadian bike is spec differently than the US model:

    Silver Series Aluminum Genesis Geometry Frame
    Alexrims TA-19 Wheels with IRC Mythos XC Tires
    Magura Julie Hydralic Disc Brakes
    Full Shimano Deore Drivetrain (Hubs, Derailleurs, HG Chain, Cassette, M440 Crank)
    Manitou Six Elite Fork
    Cane Creek Headset
    Bontrager Sport Stem Crowbar Handlebar and Sport Seatpost

    Most of the bike is stock except for the following "ricer" stuff I got for it:

    Selle Italia Max Flite Trans Am Saddle
    Shimano PD-M520 SPD Clipless Pedals
    Sigma Sport BC-1600 Computer with Night-Light
    Cateye Super-Mini Bell, HL-1500 and TL-LD600 Lights
    Topeak Cellphone Pouch, Seatpost Bag, Mini Pump, Bottle Cage
    Zefal Rear-View Mirror
    Specialized Grips
    Serfas Bar-Ends
    Lizard Skins Chainstay, Fork and Headset Wraps

    This will have to do before I can afford a decent road bike or soft-tail...

    Singlespeeded 98 Big Sur with a temporary front wheel, that is if I can get the last one fixed. Around 20 pounds, and definitely not stock. I love the way this bike fits and don't ever want to let her go.

    My Klein Attitude trailbike

    Here's my Klein Attitude, built around a 2002 frame - with all the parts I like for trail riding. Most of my riding is in the woods around Oslo, Norway, and in the high mountain trails over here.

    The crank set is from 1998, with a XT square taper bracket - brilliant stuff, still keeping it up. The seat post is heavy German stuff, holds two coil springs, and a insanely solid linear bearing kit. The extra weight suck, but I get pretty tired after the fifth or sixth hour on rocky mountain trails, and this post takes it all away. I know, FS does the same and more - but I simply love the super snappy hardtail ride feel and simplicity. This is my do-it-all mountain bike, and also has to tow our child trailer from time to time, hence no rear disck brake. Yes, I know there is possible to get adaptors, but the Ultimate has all I need from a rear brake. Twist shifter on my left hand/front der., since I am too lazy/incompetent/patient to adjust it perfectly ;-)

    A totally nice bike, rides just the way I love it.


    Frame: Klein Attitude Race '02 - Plum Crazy color
    Fork: Fox Vanilla 100R '04 (RLC '05 on it's way)
    Headset: Chris King
    Hubs: Chris King
    Spokes: DT Swiss Comp
    Rims: Mavic X618 Ceramic (rear) - CD (front)
    Tires: Schwalbe King Jim Light 2.35 (625 gr)
    QR's: Hope steel
    Front brake: Hope Mini 185 mm
    Rear brake: Avid Single Digit Ultimate
    Gear cables: Gore Ride On
    Rear brake cable: Avid Flak Jacket (full length)
    Handlebar: Azonic Double Wall 71 cm
    Crank: Race Face Turbine LP ('98) 22-32-44
    Stem: Thomson Elite 110/5
    Seatpost: Airwings Evolution 360
    (http://www.airwings-systems.de/index...tent/c6/c6.php)
    Front der.: XTR
    Cassette: XT 11-34
    Rear der.: XT
    Shifters: SRAM twister (left hand) LX pod (right hand)
    Chain: Sram PC-99
    Grips: ODI Rogue LockOn
    Seat: WTB Rocket V Stealth

    Here is a pic of my 2002 home brew trek 4500. There is nothing that is stock except for the chain and casseteand it weighs in at 24 pounds, and it used to weigh 30, and I plain to upgrade those in the spring because they are wareing out. I also plain to get a new fork because my judy sl is startinng to get tired. All this will have to get done in the spring because money in kinda of tight now because of my just accquired turner.

    Enjoy

    Here's my 02 Sugar 3+

    I've changed a buncha parts since the first pic was taken:

    Bars are now Maxm MX-6
    Stem is now Thomson
    Rims are now Mavic XC717
    Hubs are now XT Disc

    Next up: seatpost and seat, maybe new tires...If I win the lottery, a new fork. Cables are missing right now (along with a whole bunch of other stuff) since I'm in the middle of my winter overhaul, waiting for a new bushing kit.

    Very nice bike!
    Only one question: what does your seatpost do? (their site is in German, I can't understand it)

    2 smytty:
    I see you ride with sybil*link set to 4.1" travel? I have it set to 2.8" on my Sugar+ - when I tried riding with 4.1", the frame was bobbing very distincty on hardpack. How do you feel it?

    I don't get much bob at all. I find the ride too harsh in 2.8". I crank my pressure up pretty high to eliminate bob and bottoming (I'm about 215lbs at riding weight). I usually use 180-195 psi in the AD-5. But, if I go any more than that, I get clunking as it tops out, and it really kicks back when I go over a log or something like that. I'd like to put a new rear shock on with rebound adjust, but the cash is limited.
    Cheers,
    Smytty

    My Y2K Aquila SSer

    Just completed this build. Couldn't afford to spend $1000 on a GF Rig, so I built this for about half the cost of a Rig.

    Daniel, it's simple, really: Two coil springs sits inside the post to provide smooth suspension. The 50mm of travel are super smooth, thanks to six packs of linear ball bearings - with 150 high precision steel balls. All manufactured in a small, family-owned company in southern Germany. This is the only suspension seat post I know that will not jam or fail or get sloppy after some abuse, but it's heavy as sin: 790 grams.

    A new Moots titanium post is on it's way as we speak to provide some lightweight comfort... ;-)

    You can see the inner parts of the Airwings seatpost here, if I'm able to upload the picture:
