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

    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....

    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

    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.
    Thanks

    Guess I haven't posted mine yet...

    All Our Bikes-bike.jpg

    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

    All Our Bikes-yeti1h.jpg

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
    All Our Bikes-p1010740.jpg

    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!

    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!

    Smile 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.

    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.
    I'm hard yet soft, I am coloured yet clear, I am fruity and sweet. I am jelly. What am I?

    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
    All Our Bikes-21190_10152813675565442_300032888_n.jpg

    The Mountain Bikes:
    2013 Specialized S-Works Fate (hard tail)
    Haven't upgraded anything because... well, why would I?
    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!
    All Our Bikes-1014465_10154077383270442_8278540923639728838_n.jpg

    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)

    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...
