    Hey there!

    Super-psysched to join the women's mtb thread.

    My mountain bike is an Independent 'Deluxe' -- I wanted to get into dirt-riding this spring, and guess what showed up on Craiglist in my size?

    So far, Indy and I have done a lot of fire trails. I'm fairly proud that my first time on technical singletrack was two runs of the Downieville Downhill trail this July (pictured).

    I've got 8.5 bikes total -- too many to share, except the newest acquisition. Possibly the opposite of a mountain bike -- it's an aluminum lugged carbon road bike -- except that I just tried out my new ultra-light bike packing kit on it. Rode 60 miles this Saturday, camped out, and 80 miles back home, in record time. I'm so excited to throw the kit on the Indy for some off-road touring!

    [QUOTE=Andrea138;6278021]Great idea!

    I ride endurance & XC and have (had?) a Niner Jet9. It was recalled, so I sent it back, and I'll be riding an Air9 while I wait for a new Jet. The Air is arriving/getting built today, so, in the meantime, here's the Jet:

    that sucks bike being recalled at least your getting a new bike . keep riding

    small bike stable...
    Ok, I'm 5'4" with a 29 inseam.

    16" Specialized RockHopper early 1990's (sold)

    14" Kona Kula 1995 (still my main bike) swapped out the tires right away and then swapped out the Ritchey canti's for V-brakes.

    15" Jamis Dakar Comp tried the dual suspension and didn't like it. Using the drivetrain for a commuter bike build then will want to sell this frame.

    Med. GT ZuM frame currently building it up from parts.

    I also have 3 unicycles: 20" Schwinn, 24" Miyata, 26" Yuni

    There are so many bike out there to choose from eh?! I am in the market for a new DH bike... currently using a Giant Reign X1 as my "DH" bike... but i think it's time for a true DH bike!! Whistler bike park has just closed for the season (today is last day!) and by next year's opening, i'd like to have a DH bike... so, lots of time to shop around... I am thinking the Glory, if i'm gonna stick with Giant, but I like the looks of the Wilson too!

    Love all the bikes on here! Great to see women doing DH. So far I've got a Cannondale Trail SL2 and then an old style Evil Sovereign that I'm currently building. The Sov is going to be my do it all bike for am and a little dh. The build is going real slow right now, but hopefully it'll be done by summer.

    Hi, sorry to jump on this thread. Not sure if it is appropriate but not sure where else to post this question. I am new to this forum. I am researching new bikes. Looking to buy one this week. I currently have a low-end Giant 'mountain bike' but am looking to upgrade a bit. My budget is 500 (I live in the UK). I have narrowed my choices down to two, that are slightly above budget (typical!). One is the Fuji Taho 4.0 2011 and the other is the Specialized Myka HT Elite 2011. Both are now 550 with the Fuji previously being 749 and the Specialized previously 679.

    Looking through the buying advice in the Mountain Bike World website it seems that the Fuji has a better standard of rear derailleur and perhaps a bette make of forks. All of the other components read like a foreign language to me.

    As both bikes are on sale in a national retailer (with only one shop within 80 miles of me) I am not able to test them out for myself. Also, their reduced price also means reduced stock so I need to act fast to get a bike in my size.

    I am a woman of 5 foot 3 inches. I will be using the bike for trails, (a little) bumpy downhills and on road/pathways/cycle tracks.

    I would like a bike that offers the best quality value for money and would really appreciate your advice.

    Thank you : )

    Hey ya'll, love your bikes.....

    I am a newbie, just into mtb for a couple months now.....

    Haven't been able to figure out how to upload pics......but, bike #1 is a 2004 Trek 4900 I bought used to see if I was gonna like mtb riding, and, I LOVE IT!! The bike I bought is a man's 21" frame....I am 5' 7' it is tooooo big for me but rode it until I decided what I wanted my next bike to be.....and that brings me to bike #2....2012 Trek 4300 16" frame and man do I love it....gotta do alittle tweeking to it as bike #1 reach is more comfortable with a slight riser stem but hey, I will ride her til I can get that changed!!
  • 03-23-2012
    I just got this Blur LT, it is SOOO much lighter than my Bullit! Still dialing in the suspension. Air doesn't seem as easy to pin down as coil.

    Weight aside nothing compares to my Bullit. My true love...

    I like the Bullit so much I also have DH version :D

    Love the bikes, everybody - thanks for sharing! I'm new to mountain biking and am in the market for a bike, so it's fun to see what you all ride. Currently I commute on my Surly Steamroller and compete in triathlons on my Blue T16, and I can't wait to add another bike to the stable.

    Hey All: I'm new to this site and new to mountain biking and I first want to thank you for SAVING MY LIFE. I made BOO BOO numero uno and went to the local Walmart (stone me to death in the courtyard) and bought something I read about in the Beginners' Bikes forum. Immediately Returned it with their crappy Coleman tent with the sticking zippers and patched up seams. Now i have $250 burning a hole in my pocket and can match that for a decent bike I can grow into and enjoy this sport on. I don't want to pay over $600. I'm in touch with REI annd local bike stores in Albuquerque, NM. I live outside the city in an area called the East MTNS. How appropriate for my new sport. Anyway, I'm going to test drive the Marins, GTs, Treks, and maybe Giants (It doesn't look like Specialized makes female hoppers) AND WHATEVER ELSE YOU TELL ME TO CHECK OUT. I know I need a hardtail whatever that means. Are linear brakes OK or will disc be better? I'm 5 5 ave build and 55 yrs. old in pretty good shape except when i fall down. Please help with input. I don't plan to race or go up and down the Grand Canyon. I just want to enjoy the sport and back roads of my land of enchantment! Judith

    I just got a brand new Wahoo 29er disc! I am not going to post a pic yet because it is pretty much exactly as it looked when it left the store less my pedals and seat from my old bike. I'm pretty excited to have a nice bike now though. I was riding an old old Gary Fisher and it wasn't the right size anyway so this is a big step even though the Wahoo is not the top of the line bike. It's a vast improvement so I'm happy.

    Me and my Dragon
    This is me with my Jamis Dragon 29er. She's a steel beast and bit heavy at 30 lbs., but that'll just make me stronger right?
  • 06-09-2012
    First bike: My son's Walmart special. I trashed 2 derailleurs and decided a Real Bike would be less expensive in the long run.
    Second bike: The Frankenbike. A basic blue Trek hardtail (will they ever get imaginative with color?), no brakes, shifters, or anything on it matched, and I decided if I was still riding it in three years, I'd buy a Real Bike.
    Third bike: A purple Ellsworth Truth that I have loved and ridden the wheels off a couple times. A Real Bike. But I want something new, because all the other girls are going 29er.
    My next bike? Demoing a carbon Trek Top Fuel. It's grey and ugly as homemade sin and eats up everything in sight like a 17-year-old boy on a growth spurt. But the ride is pretty great! I just try not to look down at it too much.
  • 08-10-2012
    Wow - you guys have AWESOME bikes. I'm looking at a new beginner bike (and I mean, wimpy, fraidy-cat beginner). I've been a trail RUNNER for years, but injury has me looking at bikes. 29 seems too big to start with. I was looking at REI's Marin Bear Valley Women's bike in a serious look. I know they'll measure me and fit me which seems to be important. And I've looked at components with ignorance - looking at prices to see what's "better" since I don't know otherwise..
    Any word on the Marin Bear Valley? Is Novara a better brand? $500 is my price range - I'm of the mind that I need to really learn to ride on a basic bike - nothing too fancy (they have a Scott Contessa 30 on sale, too).. (of course - ha, both of these are $600/$650)...
    So, what's a not-fancy basic, good-enough for beginning/intermediate trail riding bike?

    Here's my Yukon FX. Started back in March having never been on a mountain bike. As a matter of fact, I hadn't even been on a bike since 1990. (yeah, I 'm a 50+ master class ;-) But I started MTB as cross training for trail running, and now the bike is my passion!

    A beater bike. Every bike here embarasses mine. Even the other beaters.

    I will just give a link, it isn't even worth taking a picture of. Parts are all stock except the accessories and saddle. I have the 16" woman's frame (which is too big for me at 5'3"). I am slowly piecing together a real bike from the bargain bins, but it is months away. I am not sure if my Diamondback even has that long left in it considering how often and where I ride :/
    BikePedia - 1996 Diamondback Outlook Complete Bicycle

    I am building a real bike on a 14" woman's Haro V2 frame (maybe 2006? Not positive on the year), so it still won't be nearly as nice as most stuff here. But I am gonna be proud as **** about it and post pictures all over as soon as I get it all together :)

    Hey, if it's old and rigid, that just makes you more badass ;)

    dont fret about the bike. having a nice light bike just makes your life easier while riding, but the opposite doesnt make you any less a rider!

    (i was shredding my first two months on a magna comfort cruiser, haha)
  • 10-16-2012
    So THAT is why everyone on the trail acts so surprised and impressed when they see me riding around! :p

    Today was the first day the bike flat out pissed me off. I wanted to take a trail that was a step up. I looked at the hill, and knew gawd damned well I could ride it. Stopping or controlling my speed in any way, however... I turned around and found some bunny hops to play on. While turning to the path, bike skidded into the middle of the path instead of slowing down, as if to just let me know I made the right choice. I had to jump off to get it under control before I hit a rock. I went through the bunny hills then walked it down the rest of the way, which was just as steep as the section I just bypassed. I really wanted to try to get my first taste of airtime :/

    I bombed down my regular route like bat outta hell and went over as many large rocks in the rock garden as I could handle. That'll show it! :p

    Now, don't get me wrong, I am actually enjoying the full rigid and plan to tune my suspension in pretty tight. I didn't like squish when I tried it. This bike I'm on just doesn't exactly inspire much confidence towards it's reliability...

    Haha, sorry about the rant :p I have avoided openly *****ing about the bike until now. Straw that broke the back and all that today >.< I can still work on the sections on my regular route, and get those down top notch :)
  • 11-09-2012

    the stable's getting a little crowded. The front one is my newest addition - Specialized Myka 29er. I got it after testing a Specialized Hardrock, and because it was a good Craigslist find. Then I went to the LBS and spent up all the money I'd saved by buying used on shoes and pedals. Woohoo!

    and sorry it's so big, help on resizing this would be nice. I tried doing it through my photobucket acct but no luck. As is you can enjoy three bikes in their full glory ;)
  • 11-09-2012
    I just added a '13 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon 29... well, kinda. It's on layaway :) I've about had it with my '12 Giant Rainier 29er 0. I can't even bear to look at it anymore. And what do you know, the new bike has no pink on it, haha.

    I Just finished this bike for my gf in the hopes of getting her into mtb's
    $60 for a 08 myka comp with v brakes and shot tires off CL
    I added avid bb5 brakes, sun rims w/ Deore hubs, Panaracer fire xc tires, SRAM x7 shifters, and a botranger saddle. I didn't wanna buy new then her hate it so building this was fun if nothing else.

    My Wife's bike Fang
    My wife's GT. The bike started as a bare frame from Nashbar for $98. (didn't include rear shock and was a horrible brown color). I built it up with a 2 by 10 drive train to start, but she had problems with the front shifting due to nerve damage in her hand from a horse riding accident when she was a professional equestrian. The front mech would move away from the chainrings as the suspension compresses and combined with her weak thumb, she couldn't make it work. I adapted the frame to accept hammerschmidt, and Jess loves the current set up with front shifting problems a thing of the past. The chain line is a lot better now as well being an 83 by 150 set up, instead of the 73 by 150 stock set up.

    She is doing great as a beginning rider. She is really pleased at how much of her hunter/jumper skills adapt to bike riding.

    Purchased my new 9 Zero 7 about 6 months ago. Enjoyed it a few times this summer on the shores of Lake Ontario & have been averaging 4-5 rides a week since the snow started flying. Unfortunately we are having a unseasonably warm week and the snow is almost gone from high temps & rain :madman:
  • 01-14-2013
    Oh my god. I love your 9zero7.Fantastic. I have snow here too. In answer to the women looking for beginner bikes i was too. Since I last posted here in april of 2012, I purchased a KONA TIKA MTN BIKE 26" tires sized to me. Got it on sale for about $750. Added Armadillor tires becuase I was getting so many flats from goatsheads. I REALLY MISS THE GT KARAMGORAM 29r that i returned to store because of all the flats. I blamed the tires. The i found a Fuji Absolute 3 on BbikesDirect online for only $400 to use as a road bike. I like it's straight handlebars. Less spooky. I live at 7000' in mtns of nm and could see myself on the above. I need to research it.

    Hi Msrutzie,
    I know this is an old thread, but I was looking for a matching pink fork for my wifes pink Yeti, and came across the pics of your Ibis with pink fork on google.
    Can you tell me what model that fork is?? It looks like a Manitou R7, but I cant find any info on it. Any help would be appreciated.

    These were all purchased this year. Prior to these, I had a KHS Crest MTB for about 10 years while my kids were little and I had no "me" time. Before that, I worked in a bike shop and had a revolving door of various bikes. Voodoo, Redline, Torker, Gary Fisher, KHS, Univega, IronHorse, Diamond Back, Quintana Roo, Lotus.
    One constant is I like steel as a material. Other than that, I swear I am all over the place for rides.

    I'm 169cm (5ft7) and have just brought an Apollo Taos C 17" (2010 model I think was half price anyway :D )

    I've put on slightly wider bars (replacing stock Easton EA50's 640mm and 95mm stem wth FSA XC281 680mm and Funn 50mm stem Also changed out the wheels purely because the ProLite Arvier's I had on the other bike have sealed hubs as opposed to the Alex rims with Formula Hubs that came with the bike.

    It's my first carbon HT and I'm pretty stoked, fits me well too. I was riding a 19" Brodie Kinetic (circa 2000 or 2001) which seemed to fit ok in comparison, but I think had a shorter ETT than most 19" bikes, standover wasn't a huge issue since I don't ride that much dirt these days, would love to but where I live and time are a big factor.

    Anyhow this bike is so much fun to ride to work and hopefully get out onto the trails one day....

    Attachment 783062

    We brought one the same for my Husband but a 19" version, although I think I'll swap his 110mm stem and put my 95mm on there since I don't need it, he's not that much taller than me so probably would be a bit stretched out I imagine, but he's not that into riding so wouldn't be fussed either way and probably won't even notice the difference which :thumbsup:

    Must say I really hated the handling with the long stem (95mm), I imagine it's something one would eventually get used to, but I am much happier now that the 50mm is on there!

    Hi Msrutzie,
    I was just curious about the pink Manitou on your Mojo SL. It looks like an R7?
    Is that some custom one-off, or did manitou have a limited edition run of pink manitous at some point as far as you know?
    I couldnt find any info on it, and would really like to get my hands on one for my wifes pink Yeti. Any info would be appreciated.

    Attachment 807761

    I came across this thread while looking for a pink suspension fork to upgrade my wifes Pink and brushed alloy Yeti ASR.
    Now that I see that people are posting their bikes, I figured let me post Susans.

    Its a large size limited edition ASR-SL, with a Sram X0 "Pinkslip" drivetrain, and tons of other goodies.
    Carbon rims, FSA SLK post and stem, and tons of other high end bling.
    Weighs in at 23 lbs with pedals as pictured.

    Sadly she barely rides anymore, so the bikes for sale.

    Gorgeous bike! What don't you like about it that you're considering swapping?
  • 08-23-2013
    The forks are the basic forks that came with the frame when I bought it and they're pretty flippin basic so im looking at upgrading them either way. I've heard rave reviews about the bronson carbon and have always been a big santa cruz fan so thinking of swapping. A bit bonkers really seeing as Ive gone to the effort of replacing so many rubbish components that came with it like the headset and bottom bracket. It rides pretty well but I would like to try a carbon frame from a lightness perspective. Would like to be able to throw it around a bit more and figured having poor strength compared to the OH I might do well with something a bit lighter.

    My rides
    I'm only 4'10" so I have tiny bikes. I started with a Trek 820 which has been downgraded to a beater bike around work.

    I moved onto a 2011 Specialized Myka which is pictured below. No updates except a bash guard.

    I also have a 2007 Giant OCR1 which feels like it was made just for me. I love it and completed a century ride on it in 2008. Since then I am become a dirt girl!

    And now to add an updated photo of the new pony... 2014 Giant Lust 1. Set it up tubeless and just love it!

    Hi Ladies,

    I just wanted to say hi. I'm 5'2" short 27" inseam. I have a Trek Fuel Ex 5.5. I have a small 15" frame and it seems to work out for me!

    I'm from Shreveport, Louisiana but (thankfully) now I live in Salt Lake City! I mostly ride in Park City but I've been down to Draper a few times and have enjoyed it :)

    I have a Motobecane Fantom HT Trail. Sram setup, first time having disc brakes. So far I've added the red grips, spd pedals, a suspension seatpost, basic bike computer and bell. :). Have a road bike on order for end of July. Been away from cycling for several years, back at it now for about 4 months and I'm hooked again. Happy Trails!

    And my full squish 2013 Cannondale Scarlet 1, aka "Bertha", because she's a big burly girl.
    Attachment 900966

    We're also trying to put back an old GF 98 Hookooekoo to life. I'll post pictures when she's done.

    I'm a relatively tiny girl of 5"3'ish and 30inch inseam and unusually longer arms. I usually fit on a s/m women's and a s men's bike.

    Just realized I've never really posted here!

    Road Bike:
    2012 Specialized Ruby Apex Compact
    Size 57 XL WSD
    SRAM Force 22 group set
    Mavic Kysium wheels
    Weighed in at 18.2 pounds with super heavy thick tires and Apex front derailleur. I need to get it a carbon seat post, but I ride enough gravel that I don't mind the heavier tires
    Attachment 900977

    The Mountain Bikes:
    2013 Specialized S-Works Fate (hard tail)
    Haven't upgraded anything because... well, why would I? :D
    Size 19 L WSD
    Weighed in at 20.5lbs when the bike shop built it with tubes, test pedals... haven't reweighed with my SPDs and tubeless

    2013 Specialized Epic Expert Carbon (full suspension)
    Specialized carbon seat post and handlebars
    Size 15 M
    Have never weighed it... but it's a fatty compared to the Fate!
    Attachment 900972

    Cyclocross Bike:
    2013 Specialized S-Works Crux frame
    SRAM Force front and rear derailleurs, crankset
    Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes
    Thinking I'll convert to 1x10 here before 'cross season starts
    Size 54
    Weighed in at 19.1lbs... but I think that was without the carbon crankset. Looking to drop even more weight once I go 1x10
    (Photo is with my old SRAM Apex parts)
    Attachment 900974

    Cyclocross Bike #2:
    2012 Specialized Crux Comp Apex
    It's in pieces because I cannibalized it for the S-Works, but now I have to put it all back together so I can have a pit bike...
    Size 54
    Weighs 21.5lbs as a complete bike
    (Old photo with old wheels and group set)

    I just sold my '12 Specialized Shiv TT bike... just never rode it. And my first bike since I was 12 years old was a '12 Giant Rainier 29er 0 that I sold about a year ago...

    I'm 5'9.5" tall with a 34" inseam. The Fate is the first bike that I've never had to put a 75mm stem on... it fits well with the 90. All legs, no torso is me...

    Newest Baby
    My first ever single track ride today on my new bike. Terrified and elated at the same time, love that feeling. (Am I nuts?) A root (forearm size), a sandy patch, and down hill curve all conspired to take me out. You know, what doesn't kill you... No hurts thou, so I am ready to get back out there. My newest, a 2016 Trek Cali, 27.5 (I'm too short for 29ers) It was my 50th b-day present to myself. I also have an around-the-town bike and a carbon (Trek) road bike.
