    I hope the picture worked...

    Greetings - this is my first post so be gentle...
    2012 Wahoo sock in this picture but I put on some Shimano PD-M545's pedals, added bar ends and that's about it. Of course now I also have my GoPro rail mounts all over the bike to get those 'perfect' shots or videos of me crashing (which I tend to do a lot). Anyway, this is my bike -- for now. Already planning to get a duel suspension and hopefully this year. I went 'cheap' to see if I would get back into riding. It's been a while and well I'm hooked once again!!! Just out of curiosity here, I've noticed not to many of you use bar-ends; is that a thing of the past now? I've always liked being able to change my position on climbs. Also, I'm still debating to go back to a regular platform pedal. I'm not really comfortable on these 545's. Should I give it a little more time? Thanks for reading!!

    I just put my order in at my LBS for the '13 SF 100 Elite. Due to arrive in Sept. Boom. Will be my first 29er...can't wait to race next season. Might sell '12 FEX 9.7 to help pay for it. Then again, I love that damn bike so much I might keep it.

    The only ones so far were the Marlin and now the Mamba. Anytime between now and up to August to September the rest should be following.

    Just picked up one of the last 19" mambas. There were no 19" black ones left.
    I have put about 100 miles or so on it and love it. My old bike was a Trek 6000

    Cant post images until you have 10 posts??? WTF....

    I just scored a 2012 X-Caliber off of craigslist. This bike was my top choice based on spec and it rides great, but I wasn't a fan of the paint job/decals so I wasn't going to buy a new one.

    Couldn't pass up the price though, and I'm lovin' the bike. Anybody had success removing the decals? I thought I saw another thread on this a few weeks ago.

    I guess I should have seen this thread first as I have posted on a few others. This is my new 2011 X-Caliber. Got it for a great price at my lbs. Been on one ride and really love the feel of the bike. Only upgrade so far is a WTB saddle. But plan on others as money will allow.

    Just heard my 2013 superfly hard tail should be here 8th August. Apparently a completely new frame for 2013..

    No other details as yet, apart From an increase in price over the 2012 (which I missed out on).

    Hey Everybody-

    I recently got the 2012 Trek Mamba and am looking for a second wheelset that I could use for a commuter setup. Ideally I'd like to use the same wheelset that came stock on my bike, so I was wondering if anybody had a set of the Bontrager AT-850 29 Disc Wheels that they took off of their bike if they upgraded wheels? I think this would be a lot easier for me to swap out wheels when I ride on pavement than having to change the tubes/tires each time... Anyway, if somebody has a take-off wheelset that they'd be interested in selling me, please let me know! THANKS!!

    Don't forget the cassette! I have my OEM wheelset (after going tubeless) that I want to use for recreational/railtrail riding but I can't see spending another $70 on another cassette which kind of sucks.
    Bikes, lots'o bikes

    Thanks- I did think about that and the rotors, too... The bike shop said a cassette would run about $30-$50, so that is not as big of a deal to me. When I looked into buying a new wheelset is when I found that it could get really expensive quickly, hence the reason I'm looking for somebody who has some take-offs... If anybody has takeoffs that include the cassette & rotors, then I'd be interested in those components as well. Thanks!

    2012 Marlin

    Bought the bike a month ago, already dumped a pile of coin in it on upgrades. I bought it because i didnt want to spend a lot on a 29 er in case it wasnt my thing. the frame felt great, and knew it needed some serious updradeitis if i decided to keep it. I love the way it feels and rides and the g2.
    Sofar on upgrades are:
    Avid Elixir 5 brakes
    Converted all to 9 speed drivetrain(X5 had it here already in parts box)
    Road geared style cassette(25T biggest cog)
    Tires, Bontrager 2.3 with actual knobs and traction(A must for Vancouver trails)
    Race Face Turbine cranks(these things are effing awesome)
    Funn Handle bar
    DMR V8 pedals
    I purchased a x Fusion Slide 29 Fork it on Ebay now waiting for it to come in .

    nice looking rides everyone. I look forward to seeing more pics with upgrades.

    I just got a 2012 X-Cal a few weeks ago. Upgraded the bars to white Answer Pro Taper risers, grips to Oury, and the mechanic at the LBS re-worked the fork for my weight (195lbs)....which made a huge difference in the feel of the bike.

    Next up - tires to tubeless!

    I'll post pics later

    If I didn't buy my 2012 Mamba I would have bought this! Nice BIKE!!! I have no clue about parts and components but that color scheme is awesome! Since being on this site for about a month WOW what you learn about components and stuff!

    My son & I just picked up our 2013 Mambas last night (mine's a black & orange, his is the black & gray). Hit our "home" trail after leaving the LBS and got about an hour in before dark. No pics yet though... too busy getting them dirty right away! Lovin' the bikes, but he's already plotting out some blingy upgrades for his.

    Just picked up my 2011 trek xcal today I got what I believe is a killer deal. $1266 out the door. That also includes them converting it to tubeless and upgrading to a continental rear tire and MTB front tire. If you subtract that stuff off the total price then it's under $1200 easily. I was very pleased with the service from my LBS. well here it is. At the top of canon hill overlooking my hometown.

    With the tubeless conversion that is a good deal.

    Hey I'm new to mountain biking and I just picked up a 2013 Marlin in true blue about 2 weeks ago. I had already heard about the stock shock issues so before I even picked up the bike I had the shop order me a Rockshox Reba RL and got $100 store credit for the stocker. I figured if people were breaking the shock on the first few rides I may as well make some money off it. Anyways I changed out the seat to a Bontragger wide gel seat(I'm a big guy 6ft 270) and also changed the stock pedals for some Shimano Saint platform pedals. Next week I'm picking up a Renthal Fat Bar and in another 2 weeks I plan on upgrading my crankset and casset. Right now its 3 rings upfront and 8 gears on the rear. I don't think I'll ever use my large ring so I want to go 2/9 or 2/10 with a bashgaurd. Can someone help me out? What are you running?

    I ordered my through Robby's Bike Shop. I originally planned on getting the 2012 in green but I guess they ran out of the 2012 so they got me a 2013 in true blue in a few days; which is nice because this is my fav color anyways. Bike was like $649 minus $100 for the stock shock add another $400 for the reba. I know I could have gone for the xcal but I heard the frame is the same besides shocks, color, and components. I plan on making this bike for me. I upgrade anything I ride or drive wether it be rc cars, streetbikes, whatever. I really need some healp on a new crankset though. I wanna go 36, 22 or 36, 20 with or without a bash guard, with 9 or 10 on the cassette. After that I want the shadow plus derailer, then wheels, then brakes will be upgraded last depending on how much weight I save on wheels. I love this bike so far; just got back from a ride. I had a huge nail in my tire halfway through the ride; luckily I had green slime. Rode home with no problems.

    Nice purchases I see recently... I still have to post my 2013 Mamba, black / orange...I got less than 4 wks ago.. So far upgraded to a WTB seat, grips (forgot which ones, you tighten it with allen bolt), and DB pedals.
    Better 2 ask 4 pardon than 2 ask for permission. Recall that nxt time U feel you have 2 ask ur wife if U can buy something
