    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.
