    My fully upgraded TREK Paragon 29" 2011
    Greetings, I should have found this thread earlier, so here is my TREK 29", : Paragon 2011 29" frame.
    It a great bike. Fast, stable and excellent handling. G2 geometry really works! With upgrades it rides even better, especially wheels, ceramic bearings BB and brakes! I guess the only stock components are the head set and brake discs.
    My major upgrades:
    - normal bars and Ergon grips,
    - Specialized BG seat,
    - Shimano XT BR785 2012 brakes,
    - wheels: WTB Stryker TCS Cross Country 29 2012 - most important upgrade
    - SRAM X9 3x10 GXP cranks with SRAM pressfit ceramic
    - fork: Rockshox SID XX 29" G2 100mm 15mm tapered, 2012
    - SRAM 1070 casset
    - SRAM X0 type 2 rear derailerur 2013
    - SRAM X0 shifters 2013

    Soon to be in my possession: 17 1/2 inch 2015 X-Cal 8. Already have Shimano Saint pedals coming (already have Shimano SPDs), Ergon grips/bar ends I already have, along with another saddle if the stock one does not work for me.

    @ avmech. Can't wait for real pics. I, too, plan to get an Xcal 8, just not the black model.

    I love it. I've had it through about 30 miles and the only problem I've had was with some wheel truing. It's fast compared to what I had before. I'm a been though so don't know enough to describe it. Drive train is more than what I need and shifts fast and clean.

    A local bike shop has a 29er X Cal 9 2014 for $1,000. Before I heard of that deal, I was decided on the 2015 X cal 8 (same price). I do see that the X Cal 9 2014 has better brakes while also boasting an XC32, but air-based. Which would you guys go for?

    On that platform, I would take better brakes, and an air spring fork any day of the week.

    TREK X-call 2014 and 2015 frames are identical,so if the 2014 x-call 9 and 2015 x-call 8 are for the same price, then go for the 2014 x-call 9, simply better components for the same price. Fork is really important and brakes as well.

    The biggest advantage I see from the X Cal 8 2015 is the tubeless ready rims and possibly the 2X drivetrain (though not really for me since I do like to get some speed on the roads).

    I have a 3x system on my road bike, and it isn't as smooth or nice at high speeds going down hills. I prefer to either coast in the middle ring and the highest gear, or the big ring and half way down the cassette.
    Also, why do you ride road on your mountain bike? It isn't designed for that, therefore you don't need a big ring. A third ring also adds weight (its what the weight weenies say).

    The air based spring will be a much bigger upgrade over a coil spring in the fork. I'd go with 9.

    I am slumming with my Marlin 5, which is now absolutely stock. With the places I am riding it is super capable. I need to get it to some good trails. Actually I will be doing the best riding on my department store Schwinn because I am taking it to the ranch and there are some pretty interesting roads out there.

    I'll try to post a photo soon.

    Hi ConchoBill,
    Picked up a 2015 Marlin 5 last week. Hope you love yours as much as I love mine. All stock as well, Awesome on single track and gravel as that's all I've road so far. (I'm a noob to MTB) Hitting Bethpage State Park on Long Island NY this week and it should be a little more of a challenge, then what I road last week.

    Matty, yours looks a lot like mine, except my Raidon fork is white, and I have a mirror, water bottle and frame pump, and more dirt and mud.

    Lmao, yea definitely no dirt on mine or anything else because that pictures from the day it came home. I'm eventually going to upgrade to the Raidon fork, just don't have the funds atm. I now have a seat pack, frame pump and bottle holder. I'll take a new pic after this weekend because I'm going to hit the trails hard!

    Amazon tells me that I just received this saddle at my house:
    Amazon.com : Avenir Men's 100 Series Mountain Saddle (Black/Silver) : Bike Saddles And Seats : Sports & Outdoors
    So it will be added to my dirty Trek Marlin 29er.

    I never saw a bike that looked anything like that!

    Matty, being the tech idiot I am, I can't get my photos small enough in mbs to post, or I cannot understand how to post photos here. That is why no photo.
