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.
Guess I haven't posted mine yet...
Still trying to decide on a name! So far, I have come up with Jerboa (cause it was built for riding in the desert, and is made up of random parts) or Javelina (cause it looks like a pig!)
Dream Pink Yeti
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.
I ride a Lapierre Zesty 314L, almost completely non standard and custom powder coated. Took quite a while to get how I wanted and now I've got it that way Im considering swapping!

Gorgeous bike! What don't you like about it that you're considering 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.
Here is my current bike. It took me a while to find my perfect match, but I think this might be the one. I have a dropper post on order;)
I've been mostly lurking as of late but thought I should finally share my bikes- I love them all, but my mountain bike is definitely my favorite! And yes, I had to have my husband help me with the specs :)

One loving husband with 13 years of working in a shop to help put them all together and keep them running smoothly (and do parts write ups when she posts them online)!
Made some quiver changes, so an update post of sorts:
2013 Salsa Colossal
2013 All City Nature Boy
My new one I got in Sept, Scott Spark 920:
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!
I love reading and seeing that there are a ton of women riders out there!
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 here i am on the trail with it.:D
Our dining room is taken over by 5 bikes, we love riding!
Between my husband and I, there are 5 bikes that have taken over half of our dining area. We looove riding!
This is my husband trusty commuter, Novara Express equipped with a pannier for packing extra clothes and food.
My husband's trusty XC, 2012 Marin Indian Fire Trail 29er.
My 2012 Giant Rainier 29er.
And my full squish 2013 Cannondale Scarlet 1, aka "Bertha", because she's a big burly girl.
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!
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
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!
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
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)
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...
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...
Got my newest Moto today!
So glad to have a road bike again.
Here it is with some upgrades. Jagwire teflon coated cables with white housing and some flashy white bar tape. Oh I love bikes!!!
My bike. It's taking over my hiking!
After 7 years and lots of miles, time for a new ride.
Had to dress her up a little bit:
Not sure if i posted my two newest ones. i will say, the pugsly has already been sold because i bought a fat bike with a suspension fork :)
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.
