I know I can cut it but wanted to know if it would be better to swap it out for more comfort and also to shed some weight. Any recommendations anyone?
    ncruz, I've got a '11 Paragon (Stealth Grey Paint Job) that came with the somewhat maligned 17 degree big sweep bars. I cut mine to fit my perception of what works and would recommend you consider cutting yours before buying replacements (even if you are buying replacements anyway) to see what you like (width wise). If you cut your stock bars too narrow, you can fix that with the planned replacement, if you cut your replacement bars too narrow you're buying a third set. I'm a big believer in my bars supporting a "neutral wrist" position where the wrist is neither turned inward or outward and where the wrist is not bent with fingers on the controls (in your primary riding position you should be able to lay a flat edge (ruler) along the forearm and back of the hand and approximate a straight line. I've used risers and non-risers, always with at least 10 degrees of sweep.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    A little late to reply to this, but when I switched from my 3x10 to XX1, my bike dropped a little over 800 grams.

    All changes are to make it more my style, not for a performance upgrade necessarily, although the brakes are major upgrades.

    X9 rear derailleur
    X0 gripshift
    Hope Tech3 E4 front brake, Tech 3 X2 rear brake
    203mm rotors front and rear
    XR4 front tire
    I did dump the large ring, since I am not nearly strong enough to need it. Added a RaceFace bash guard.

    Otherwise stock. I tried the triggers, just could not get used to them, so I had to go with a Sram rear derailleur. I have always liked gripshift. The shifters are 3x10, even though I did remove the large ring. If I find I eventually need the large ring, I will toss it on, and can still use the shifters!
    After that, the Shimano brakes would NOT fit in a safe manner (I figured they woulnd't) so I was going to get a set of Hayes Prime experts, but instead decided to splurge on the brakes with large rotors.
    I LOVE the XR4 tire on my 26" Fuel EX9, so I knew I wanted that tire up front.

    New commuter/rehab bike - broke my leg a month ago trail riding. Scored it rediculous cheap and have a rigid fork and super moto tires on the way. Dont dig road bikes, and a 29er will be way cooler.

    Funny you posted the second pic haha, we will have similar builds. Are they Big Apples? Looks like it - I have some Super Motos on the way and a carbon fork. With slx crank, narrow wide and xtr rear mech.

    Here is the best phone pic - its without BB now. All the parts are trickling in this week. Really stoked.

    Trek 29er's roll call

    I'm using conti xkings. They aren't s beefy as maxxis ardents, or bontrager tr's, but they are like Velcro on the trail. Anything is better than the tires that came on my SF elite. Garbage !!!

    I have the same bike and immediately upgraded to the bontrager's 29-3 team issue tires (the shop I go to only carries Trek stuff so I'm not familiar with other brands so much). But I love the 3s (I think they've been renamed XR3 now). I live in New England so rocky, rooty trails but these tires are still great in wet and dry conditions and absolutely rail turns. But as always, I recommend talking to your LBS and seeing what they feel is best.

    It's all about where you live and trail conditions. I'm in AL and it's humid and the trails are super dry. So the contis are perfect for me. So like Kevin said, hit up your LBS

    My LBS sells a lot of Maxxis Ignitors, so I have taken their advice and run them on my Superfly FS 9. I'm no expert, but I like them for leafy, rooty, rocky terrain. It came with Bontrager XR1 Team Issue, which work well for me with dry, packed dirt and gravel.

    Mine aren't really beefier but I love them for my XC Pacific NW riding. I run Specialized S-Works Ground Control 2.1 front and back.

    Although this season I'm thinking of swapping the rear for a Maxxis but I can't decide which.

    Trek 29er's roll call

    Just picked up an X-Caliber 6. Haven't been on a bike since 2007 and haven't been on a hard tail since 2009. Have about 40miles on it so far and it's been interesting. Wasn't sure what to expect from it being low spec, I've never owned such a low spec bike but finances right now won't allow anything nicer. Let's see how long I can keep this one for.

    Anything Stan's is good. You can find them on eBay with tires and ready to roll for around $400. That's what I did on my other bike before I sold it.

    First 29er, Trek X-caliber 8
    I really enjoy the ride. Handles terrain really nice. Changed the saddle, specialized white pedals, added some fenders and Lizard skin grips (not seen).
    Mainly use it for XC, some downhill and moderate jumps.
    I like it

    Got this 2013 Rumblefish late last year. First time on a 29er and I like it. Already have a few upgrades and I am waiting for more in the mail.
    Already installed are XT shifters, ENVE bar and seatpost, WTB Silverado saddle XTR cassette with Wolftooth 42tooth cog and ODI XTrainer grips, and I converted to tubeless.
    Waiting for I9/Stans Arch wheels, Race Face 30tooth NW ring, XTR crank and XTR rear derailleur.

    My fork was part of the recall, and I have a few rides on the new damper, and I must say it is a world of difference. CTD actually does something, and I get just about full travel, still dialing the pressure.

    2013 Trek Marlin

    Owner: Cody
    Location: South Eastern Wisconsin
    Bike/Setup: 2013 Trek Marlin - Stock except for the pedals and gel seat cover
    How long have you owned it: 2 Days
    Thoughts so far: Haven't taken it to a trail yet, so I am not sure how it will ride. But I took it for a 30 mile road cruise today and it performed better than expected!
    Cons so far: The brakes suck, definitely need to upgrade.

    My hard tail is a 2011 Cobia, my full suspension is a 2013 Super Fly AL 100. Have only took the SF on 2 rides but I am well pleased with it. At my age the suspension sure does make a big difference, I'm almost 56 years young.
