    2013 Race bikes
    Post up! I'm trying to gather ideas for my bike situation next year. Would love to see some XC and shorter endurance race bikes here.

    I built this for racing in 2013. I had ordered a Superfly 100 SL but got my deposit back when the shipping date got pushed back past out entire race season. I put it together with a mix of parts some new some old to get started. Now I'm going to start with the XX1 a piece at a time.

    ^ That scalpal looks really long. What size is that? I wish I could afford one, college. Got my eye on a F29 carbon 3 for 2013.

    Probably because of the bad I phone pic. It's a medium.

    XX cassette
    Easton EC90 seatpost and handlebar
    Magura MT 8 brakes
    Selle Italia SLR kit Carbonio flow saddle
    Enve XC wheels with DT Swiss 240 hubs front and rear.

    Bought the bike used, stock. Then upgraded.

    Yeah the bike should! I just hope that the engine can keep up!

    I've been a single speed racer exclusively for the past 5 years, so racing with gears will be different for me for sure. Although at some point, I may convert this to SS. Ha!

    Wow! Looks like a Tallboy competitor. Eager to hear about some rides on it.

    That's funny. I've been riding SS for 4 years and raced the SS open class in Arizona last year. I made the switch to a geared suspension bike this year also.

    That's quite a change for you. I'm interested to see how quickly your SS climbing style adapts to the FS bike (as someone who stands to climb a lot as well). Adapting to gears will be interesting as well.

    People who are fast tend to be fast on any bike (that fits), so I'm sure you'll do well :)

    I broke my full suspension so picked up a new frame and built this up. Poor college student status. Plans are for a new wheelset in the future and ikons waiting to go on once summer starts.

    Only Slightly Different
    This year I started racing rigid steel,

    moved to rigid Al

    but did some experimenting with a suspension fork, and found it to be really fun so I'll be on an Al HT in 2013.

    MAde the switch from carbon back to aluminum for the 2013 race year. Here is my Spearfish 1 fully built w pedals, bar ends & bottle cages coming in at 21.7 lbs. This year I won't be blaming my gear...
