    This, but swapping the XX for XX1 with a 36t front ring. 19.5lbs as she stands, should be sub-19 after the swap.

    XX will go on my fiancee's 650b HT.

    On an Air9 RDO currently for my geared race bike. Thinking of selling that frame and fork and going with an Epic Expert WC or S-works. Not sure though.

    Haven't got everything yet but it will be a IP-057 frame, chinese carbon wheels, Manitou tower pro fork, XO cranks, XT brakes, and a bunch of other carbon TBD. Single speed.

    Very nice. Looks fast as heck. I am most likely buying a Pivot Mach 6 for myself for my 40th bday for most trail riding. I sold my trail/race bike (Fuel EX 9.8) to buy an XC race steed. I am thinking a 29er hardtail. What frame is that?

    I'd love something lighter and carbon, but this is what I have for next season. I'll be swapping tires to Rocket Ron's.

    What rig are you racing next year?

    2014 Giant XTC Advanced SL 29er. Going to back to a hardtail after a year on an Anthem.

    It was a hard choice between Giant's 27.5's and the 29'er, but stayed with a 29'er because i have such an arsenal of 29'er tires in the garage. Really could have went either way though.

    Re: What rig are you racing next year?

    Pivot 429C with XTR. Raced SS last year but decided to go with gears this season. Might still do a few fall races on my El Mar.

    Same bike as last year: '08 Kona Kula Deluxe 2-9 (Scandium hardtail), mostly XTR 975 9spd, older Stans rims on XT hubs, Fox F29 RL. It's a good bike, but heavy by modern standards at about 25#. I will likely drop a half pound with lighter tires (Racing Ralphs?), I'm also looking at carbon bars and a lighter stem, that's probably the extent of my upgrade budget for next year. I'll be racing Cat1 masters 45+ in the Seattle area.
    Since the OP's question is pretty open ended, not limited to bikes; my autocross car will remain the same, an '89 Porsche 944S2, in the S2 category in the PNWR regional series. CX bike will be the same too; '07 Sworks tri-cross.
    I don't have a photo of the Kona, but here's the tri-cross.

    Same as 2013. Rocky Element 29 RSL, with XX1 drivetrain and a couple of different wheelsets. The Fox CTD suspension will be updated to '14 damper spec. This bike is da business!

    Perhaps add a carbon hardtail, depending on $/support, though I find the Element just right for 80% of the races I do.

    First Season w/ two bikes

    The Genius was supposed to be an offseason bike, to be replaced by a race bike for next race season. I like it so much I can't bring myself to sell it, so I sold my road bike to build up the hardtail. The genius is really competitive on rough courses, and will be a good bike for the couple enduro races I will race this year.

    24.0 lb

    I'll continue on my Orebea Alma. Weighs in around 22lbs. I really want to get more MTB races in but it gets tough trying to fit it in with my road racing.
