    After 23 years, I retired my 1993 Barracuda A2X last month.

    My A2X in it's final form
    Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet


    I bought the bare frame from a LBS to replace the Bridgestone MB-1 that UPS bent when shipped home in the spring. I moved all my Suntour XC Pro stuff over to the Barracuda and picked up a rigid chromoly 1-1/8 fork (MB-1 had a 1 inch Ritchey Logic fork). A year or two later, I bought a Mag21 and installed a long travel conversion bringing it up to a giant 60mm of travel. At some point, I was at the pinnacle of 90's performance with Onza HO clipless pedals as well.

    Beautiful bike. Never heard of that brand before, but I would snatch up one in a heartbeat if I saw it for sale.

    Barracuda factoid - Yeti built a bunch of stuff for Barracuda during their early days, including their higher end race stuff. There is a very good chance that Frank The Welder built my frame during his time at Yeti. The next time I head to VT, I plan bringing the frame to see if he will sign it for me.

    That would be really cool. With all the hoopla over the yeti cups and such, I believe if I ever found a yeti bike I could probably sell for a good profit no matter the year.

    Nice. Somehow the hotlink wasn't displaying for me.

    Still riding my first full-sus, a '03 Giant VT1 that I bought new in 2005. I've replaced the common wear items over the years, changed the stem, upgraded to a much better FOX TALAS RLC 140mm fork, had a bunch of different tires on it, but it's always been a blast to ride, and decently efficient at climbing.

    Wow, that's a lot of linkage for a single pivot rear triangle.

    I agree that it is, but it works great. Plus with the SPV valve in the rear shock, and the correct air pressure in both chambers, it climbs great with almost no bob, and feels great when descending or jumping.

    I'll have to get some picks up. My bike is an 04 Specialized Hardrock Sport that is in the middle of being built. Bought it for $100 cdn (about $70). Replaced the front fork with a Suntour XCR ($129 cdn) and a firm coil ($20 US), new chain, cassette, crankset and BB ($150). I just bought a set of disk compatible rims, Alex DH22's with 36 spokes for $140 US. Should hold up to my 250+ size.

    My plan is to buy new hyd disk brakes, 2x10 drivetrain (keeping the brand new crankset) and a new 32 mm ish air shock. I also want a shorter stem, longer and lighter bars. The XCR can go on my wife's 05 Hardrock and replace the original Gila T5 pogo stick. I also have an 08 Hardrock that I bought as a spare bike for $90 Cdn and picked up a Suntour XCM for $20 cdn to replace the rusted and seized shock that was on that bike. It came off of a Giant that a guy upgraded. Replaced the BB on the spare bike and it's getting parts from the bin or on sale to get it riding as cheap as possible.

    So that's 2 bikes that qualify and 1 that almost does.

    Here is my 2000 Kona Blast. Just picked it up this past Sunday. It's currently at my LBS getting a complete tune up, wheels trued, new chain, and cables. I'll pick it up Monday and finally get to take it for her inaugural, (to me), ride!

    I just got it going, got the frame and shock from eBay, rims from Craigslist, brakes from a friend, and recycled the shifting components from an older bike. Still getting used to it.

    I have three, 1995 Cannondale M500 with an Amp F3XC fork (mine), 1995 Cannondale M400, and a 1996 Scott Vertigo LSD. All three got ridden this weekend at Raystown Lake. My wife and 2 daughters took me for a surprise biking weekend for my upcoming 50th bday! Bought them all new and would have a hard time getting rid of any of them.

    What, if any suggestions, for a replacement for it? I did notice on my ride last night that I seem to be leaning forward quite a bit, but, like you said, I am able to get a wheelie out of it!

    Anything you like. I prefer a short stem, usually between 50 and 70mm, but it will vary from bike to bike. Typically only feels right/better with wide bars.

    My 1995 Performance Ti is still in the family, upgraded the Mag21 to a 80mm Manitou circa 2002 and installed V-Brakes 2 years ago when my son brought it to CalPoly...

    Pict is from 2006 he was already starting to covet it at Mammoth, I'll see if he can send a recent pict.... Rode it consistently until 4yrs ago, now on a Tallboy LTc, big jump.

    My 2003 KHS XC904r

    I got back into riding this year after taking several years off and soon realized that my old bike needed some attention. The rear pivot had a LOT of play in it and my LBS told me that the pivot bushings were impossible to find so I almost gave up and started shopping for something new. Atlas, the internet provides. I found a rebuild kit on ebay and now she rides like new again.

    Then, of course I went on to do some other upgrades. Tubeless tires and 1x9 drive train are freaking awesome!

    my wifes unkown year specialized hardrock. i think its a mid 90s.



    1x10 XT drivetrain, Carbon bar, FSA Canti brakes. tubeless. nothing special but its a lot of fun to ride and relatively light. lighter than my Scalpel by a few pounds.

    before the work. I threw together the single speed stuff to see if it was rideable and in enough shape to continue with the work.




    Fully stripped down and repainted. I relocated and brazed on new cable stops for the brakes and RD. Then had to make a rear brake cable hanger so I found some old tools and threw this together.

    I've posted the stumpy before but it's only getting better with time.

    96 Stumpjumper FS M2 Comp with a 2008 Sid Race fork that I still LOVE, 1x10 XT drive, XT V-BRAKES, HED wheelset, Thomson Elite seatpost, Cane Creek S8 headset, Ritchey pro stem/bars, Shimano Saint pedals, and it just got a new Henge comp saddle thats not on the bike in this picture. I'm not sure on actual weight but this bike is featherweight.

    And this was my very first mountain bike that I bought new in 06 at 19 years old, a 2006 or 2007 Hardrock Sport. Back then I thought it was a Porsche but now I know how terrible the components were, how overweight it is and how crappy the geo is for real xc riding. My little brother got it from me and I just bought it back a couple weeks ago for $40. I added a new Shimano Deore LX crank w/octalink bb, XT derailuer, HG54 chain, XT t780 V-BRAKES, Deore shifter, Deore brake levers, body geometry grips, a perfect condition but old body geometry saddle (not in the photo) some new plastic platform pedals that are surprisingly grippy. It's a perfect bike for crappy weather or a spare bike for my dad or a buddy to ride.

    I rode mine for two seasons before I bought a 08 stumpjumper comp fsr then the Hardrock sat in the garage and my roommates took parts off of it over the years. It sat unridden for about the last 7 years until I just rebuilt it last week. I've been using it to pull the kids around the paved trails near the river and it's really a dang comfortable bike to ride but I wouldn't even attempt to climb with it lol.

    I just bought this Marin Bolinas Ridge off CL last week and updated a few components with spares I had lying around. It rides pretty well so far. '98 vintage as far as I can tell.

    Decently priced Yeti frames are around, the 01 ASR frame I picked up a few months back was only $250. Through on a bunch of parts I already had and I was good to go, it's an awesome ride.

    I think this qualifies for this thread- 1992 Scott Sawtooth. I picked it up for $60 on the local classifieds. I put some new WTBs on it and have wider riser handlebars on order. Originally the plan was to build it to a single-speed cruiser or a drop-bar MTB, but after seeing how good of condition the components are in and how well it functions and fits me as is, I'm going to ride it as a rigid MTB for a while!

    That's awesome! I love the retro color schemes. I picked up two old rigid Stumpjumpers a couple weeks ago, one is a '92 or '93 made in Japan of Tange Prestige steel and the other, the one I'm really excited about, is a '89 steel rigid Stumpjumper with the awesome pink/aqua colors.


    I picked up an older set of Hed Jet wheels for the '92/'93 and will probably keep it a 3x9 and use it for running around the paved trails in my neighborhood. I'm currently and very slowly removing all the blue carbon/fiberglass from the Jets so they look decent on the green frame. The glass is easy, it's the permanent rubber glue that's a nightmare to remove from the rims.

    I just completely stripped the '89 and picked up a old set of Mavic X221 wheels with Deore and WTB Grease Guard hubs that came off a '03 Specialized Epic shortly after it was bought. This bike has a 1x10 Shimano SLX drivetrain, Wolftooth elliptical drop stop ring and Shimano XT T780 brakes on the way. I'll probably add a 1" to 1 1/8" quill stem adapter so I can install a new Ritchey stem and bars as well.

    I need to take an updated picture, but this is my 96 trek 7000. Next month I will have owned it for 20 years and it's still rocking. I recently swapped on a shorter bomber fork (100mm) of the same vintage, wider bars, shorter stem. I converted to SS back in 08 to try that out. Liked it enough that I bought a 29er SS. Just last month I swapped the trek to 1x7 using the original derailleur and grip shift (new cassette and chain).

    Since I had back surgery in 2012 I sold my SS 29er for a full suspension which is my primary ride these days. In spite of that, I can't sell the trek. At the same time it's not really worth much if I did want to sell so why bother.

    26ers over 10 years old-trek-ss.jpgAfter buying and updating a few components on the Marin pictured a week ago, I decided to convert my old Trek into a SS since it has semi-horizontal dropouts. It worked perfectly, no need for a tensioner. I upgraded the brakes, levers and grips and it rides great. Nice and fairly light. Running a 32/20 set-up.

    1990 Marin Muirwoods. I built it up in '92. Much use as a heavy duty commuter. Now only a fun bike, but I can't see changing. Fits me too well. I'm seriously considering a redo to 2X8 from 2X7. Needs refinish, considering powder coat.

    BTW you're looking at 31# right there, tool bag , pump and all. Bathroom scale guesstimate, but I bet I'm within a few ounces

    7-speed to 8-speed can be a difficult change, depending on your rear hub.

    Mine needs new freehub, play the old respace game and redish. Haven't decided on type of shifter. 7 speed thumb supposedly will work. Sunrace has an 8 sp thumb. IF I powder coat. That's when I'll rearrange the closet and clean out the cobwebs.

    17 Years Old and Still "Bunny Hop'n"

    1999 Schwinn 4 Banger, Bass Boat Gold, 19" Frame. Only the frame and swing arms (upper/lower) are original. All components are modern, dropouts are from a 2001 Schwinn Straight 6, rear shock is a "Frankenshock" built by combining a Fox Vanilla RC body with a Fox Vanilla R shaft and the trunnion mount from a 2001 Schwinn Straight 6.

    Great ride; 5 inches of travel, truly an All Mountain Bike.

    2000 Trek VRX 300. Half original, half replaced/upgraded. The Manitou X-Vert fork was an upgrade from 00/01. Fox Vanilla shock from I dunno what year. Original Rolf Dolomite wheels, which I love as much as the new WTB Bronsons fitted to them. Just switched to Answer 2" riser bars and added the Specialized bar ends. The rear derailleur has been switched to an XTR, but the rest is the original Deore LX.

    Oh, and it inherited my ancient Echo T5 cycle computer from 1994.

    I got it on craigslist about four months ago so I could get back into riding after a 10 year break. I had to fix the damper seal in the fork, put better tires on it and swap the bars. The rest was done by previous owner(s). I've been riding the crap out of it every chance I get and I'm very happy with it, even though it feels a little flexy in the rear.

    (I dunno why my phone took such a crappy picture out at the trail, usually it does great.)

    I have a 2000 Superlight still going strong. I think you will be ok as long as the frame has not been damaged. ; )

    Well since I bought it at the end of 2005, my 2006 Giant Reign now makes the cut-off for this thread. This frame has been collecting dust on the wall since early 2011. But my Banshee Spitfire finally broke (for the third time) just a few weeks ago. And I'm certainly not going to order my crash-replacement now, so that I start counting down on my 2 year warranty in the winter. So for the next few months, my current build lives on this 10 year, 3 month old Reign.

    Here is mine. Built it in 2000, updated a few parts over the years, but for the most part it is as it was then. Started with a SID and V brakes initially, and learned real quick those did not work well for me.

    Ended up with Fox Vanilla and Avid 185mm mech discs within a year.

    Chris King built wheels with Mavic 517's
    Chris King headset
    Race Face Turbine cranks with Spot bash guard
    2 x 8 XT drivetrain
    etc etc

    Took this only about a month ago.

    Building my Super-V into a 26+ this winter... here it's sitting in urban mode. Waiting on my Dually's to come in to lace up.



    Edit: Wheels came in... still waiting on 26x3.0... here's a sample of 2.5 on a 39 inner width... DEF going 3.0'

    So, I have an '01 Giant Rainier SE that was my first decent MTB and I have always loved riding it. It has sat up for a number of years as my riding has tapered off to pretty much nothing, but I am getting back into riding again. I also have a 2007 Novara Aspen but I cannot stand the components. What I want to do is ride the Novara while I rebuild the Giant, and then keep the Novara as a back-up.

    So, Where do I start? Should I throw money into a rebuild on the Marzocchi Z5 or just drop the $$ on a Rockshox Recon, or maybe something similar? How about bottom bracket bearings and head bearings, are they readily available?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. They guy I spoke with at the Giant dealer said it was a waste of time, that I could get a better bike for less money from him....no surprise there, right?

    Old Mare Still Kicking

    26ers over 10 years old-img_2408.jpg

    1994 Salsa Ala Carte, full old school XTR, including the best vbrakes ever made, sounds hard to believe, but this bike stops better then most folks disc brakes.

    Some folks probably think this belongs in the vintage section, but this bike is still an active part of my stable. Might slowly be turning into a backup(until it turns into a SS), but still a bike that has been rebuilt, run in multiple configurations, well maintained and seems to always be going good when the others are needing a fix.

    Depends what you need to buy to do your rebuild. If it's just grease and your time, sure, go for it. If you need new little balls for the bearings or even new cones, that's still not a big deal.

    If you start getting into it and discover that your fork is toast or your drivetrain is going to need more than a chain and a cassette, slow down, really figure out what you need, and think about a new bike.

    1999 Gary Fisher Aquila

    I've been salivating over B+ bikes and am leaning towards getting a steel B+ HT next summer. But it dawned on me that I have another steel HT sitting in my basement doing nothing. Not B+ by any means, but decided that I'm going to rehab it for some trail riding next year. Started today by cleaning up the rear cassette and rear wheel. It wasn't pretty. 26ers over 10 years old-aquila.jpg

    You should start by buying an Enduro seal and wiper kit and fresh ~7.5wt suspension oil (a little lighter if you are <150 lbs or a little heavier if you are >200 lbs). Follow the instructions that come with the wipers, and you might be surprised how much better it works. If it's a 2003+ you can also replace the bushings, the older ones have larger bushings that can usually be cleaned/resurfaced. I've done that service on a few Z2 and a Z1, and they've always been almost as good as new.

    I also have a Revelation RCT3, and while I like the adjustability, it isn't as versatile as my Marzocchis in any particular setting, so I have to keep changing settings depending on terrain.

    I meant to say Recon (I have both), but the same applies. My Bombers are set and forget, my Rock Shox I have to change PSI and rebound.

    Are you sure those are going to clear? I don't remember the tire clearance on the stock swingarm, but my Uber V build could barely clear 2.2s with a Jekyll swingarm.

    Not without a little modification, but that is the intention. Modification isn't as bad as most think. Here's a pic with the 26x3.0 on the Jekyll and OEM.

    '99 Rocky Mountain Hammer Race

    26ers over 10 years old-rm-hammer-race.jpgI bought this '99 Rocky Mountain Hammer Race a few weeks ago as a Christmas present for my son-in-law. I replaced the rear shifter, installed a Chromag N/W chainring to convert to 1x9, new WTB grips, new cables and tuned it all up. He rode it on our local trails with me Monday and its a really sweet ride. The Bomber fork has no leaks and still feels firm yet plush; I may try to find one for my Marin 26er.

    ^Sexy. I love those old Hammers and Blizzards. There's nothing like a gift given for spending some quality time together that you worked on with your hands. Nice work, hope you and your SIL have a blast on wheels.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    IMA gonna say it. My Avid shorty canti's stop like this. They stop now. They stop no matter what Ma nature throws at 'em. They 'feel' right.

    This is getting fun. These wheels are 'in the rafters'. Instead of fixing what ain't broke and redishing, I got new wheels (front too. got a set for....it's a disease...)
    But I may be under the 30 pound mark.....
    Keep ya posted.
    Oh, and the frame is getting powder coated mystical blue...............

    Klein Palomino circa 2005.

    Went 1 x 9 way back in 2008 and hardly ever ran out of gearing.
    2008/9 XT/XTR brakes still top notch
    Tons of room for a larger tire than the 2.1 Panaracer I think.
    Upgraded the 100mm Fox Float to 2012 model last year


    I would like a wider gear range (as my ageing flabby ass starts to need it) so I think 1x11 may be on the way.
    May re-build the wheels too with a wider rim to take a 2.3 if it will fit in the rear triangle.

    My wife still has her Trek 850 mtn bike & I still have my Raleigh Technium mtn bike. Both in the early 90's vintage, mine maybe 90 but not sure.

    My teenage daughters ride & abuse the trek, but my Raleigh is still pristine.

    While all things are possible with access to welding gear and heat treatment, I think putting discs on the back of a rim brake bike isn't really practical. With a new fork, the front is easy. That was pretty common for a while in the mid-2000s.

    I was trying to keep the oem fork but finding rims withe the STOUT hub is not easy. For the back, figured out I need to find the shark fin adapter that bolts to the frame and
    then it shouldn't be too bad. In any case, this is a good learning experience for me with bicycles.

    Shimano XT, Novatec, Hope, or DT Swiss would be better hubs anyway.
    If you can't find a sharkfin, this will work well.

    Thanks for the link. As far as the hub, since the forks are dropouts that don't use the regular 9mm QR, what type/size of those brands can I use?

    The fork in your photo is 9mm. The hub on it might have a thicker QR, "9mm through axle", but if you change the hub, just buy a normal QR, 5mm. Novatec, Hope, and DT Swiss all have convertible endcaps. Novatec is available with what's called "9mm through axle", but I would just get a normal one.

    You should probably just buy a whole wheel. Any normal QR wheel will fit.

    You need to find a specialized shark fin disc adaptor. They fit specialized bikes from 99 and 00. Bolt on disc brake conversion.

    I've posted a pic of this bike before but I've upgraded the drivetrain to a 1x7. I'm using the 32T chainring that came with the Shimano crankset I recently bought and no dropped chains so far. The SRAM cassette is a 12-32 and climbing the local trail hasn't been too tough. Even though this old Marin is a '98 vintage it rides and handles great. Gotta love those old cro-mo frames. I ride this bike about as often as my 29er.

    I kinda have a soft spot for old Marins myself.......
    say what you want about aluminum, carbon fiber, unobtainium and all that stuff.
    CroMo has a certain 'feel' you just can't duplicate

    I agree. I've had the bike for about 6 months, bought it locally off CL for $65, and I love riding it. I'm 6'-2"/225 and it fits me well and rides very well even for a rigid. I've thought about putting an old Bomber on it but I'm holding off for now.

    Here is my 1994 Rockhopper Comp FS. I bought it new back in 1994 and it has served me well. Since this picture I have replaced the shock from a Manitou 3 to a Rockshox 30 Silver TK as well as the brakes from cantilever to V-brake and the chain and bottom bracket.

    I recently posted this in the GT forums. Here is my over 10 year old bike. I am looking into getting a 685mm riser bar, a new seat, and a RockShox Recon Silver TK 100mm fork.

    I just picked this up from CL today. I traded it for a box of Craftsman tools that I got some months ago.
    The guy claims to have barely ridden it and it shows. Everything is stock except for the pedals. It's dirty from being in storage for so long it's even got some spider webs in some areas. Bike looks almost new with the exception of some scratches from being moved around.
    The bike is pretty light I was able to carry it from my car to the garage with one hand. I really want to ride it and maybe use it as a commuter.
    Anybody got any opinions on this bike? I've read different opinions on it from bad to good. For now I'm just going to change the tires and tubes, clean it, lube it up and see how it works.
    I already have a Diamondback Mountain bike which is my go to bike. If end up not liking it I'm going to sell it or trade it for a different bike.

    crazy heavy and for commuting, unless you do it on dirt, a coil dually isn't really well suited, unless you're getting training miles in by pushing that boat anchor around.
    I'd also service that fork before you try and put any miles on it.

    I have to agree...I had one for years, it was my first "real" mountain bike as a 17ish year old and it's a serious tank. Heavy as heck but also took a beating and is still rolling to this day, 13 years after I bought it well used.

    If you're looking for a solid commuter, it's really hard to beat a early-mid 90s steel frame rigid or FS Stumpjumper (or similar). They're fairly common and cheap at $100- $200, sometimes less, and the ride is fantastic at that price range.

    Yep, I'd agree with all of that. I'd actually recommend you do what I did with an early-90's Trek full-suspension (more like full-pogo-stick). Take off all the components and move them to a vintage steel frame. Specialized usually used a decent mix of parts, looks like a Specialized Crank, Deore XT rear derailleur, and non-parallel-push V-brakes. No muss, no fuss solid stuff. I got a '94 Marin Eldridge Grade, which was a high-end lightweight steel frame at the time, for $50 including the original fork (but no headset), and built up a sub 24 pound single-speed.

    There were several different crank/bottom bracket interfaces at the time (yours appears to be square taper), but they basically all used 68 or 73mm English-threaded bottom brackets, so you can move the whole crank and BB to a new frame (worst case you need a new $20 bottom bracket if the width is different). You will need a shim to mount the front derailleur on a traditional seat tube (probably 31.8-34.9mm), and most likely a new seat post in a different diameter, maybe a new stem (depending on length, or whether the new frame is old enough to use a threaded fork).

    I also recommend that you install all new shifter and brake cables when you move to a new frame, it's not worth the trouble to reuse any stuff like that. Building up a bike from the frame up, even with old used components, is great experience. Take pictures before you disassemble, and you should probably invest in a torque wrench if you don't have one already (3-15 or 5-20Nm or so).

    For stuff like facing/reaming, headset installation, it's kind of expensive to buy the tools, but if you have a small, independent local bike shop around, try buying all your cables, brake pads, tires, etc. there and making small talk (and maybe bring by a 6-pack every now and then). You might be surprised how willing they are to help. On the other hand, don't walk in with parts you just bought over the Internet and expect them to be thrilled about installing them for cheap.

    Thanks for all advice I guess that if I keep it will be relegated to riding around the park and as a spare bike when someone needs a mountain bike.

    My commute is going to be mostly pavement but I will be hitting some dirt. For some reason I also feel more secure on a mountain bike. Near my house the roads sometimes have some surprises like grooves on the pavement, uneven roads, loose rocks, loose sand, and other things that I think a mountain bike would handle better.
    I'll be going from the city towards the beach and back. I'll be going through two parks and sometimes I have to move to the grass to avoid pedestrians, skateboarders and other bikes.
    If this thing can take a beating then I might keep it.

    I've looked this up before and have often referred to it as an 03 Kona but it's actually a 2001.
    Bought "new" and on sale in 03. This photo is about 2 months ago.

    Still in great shape and now serving as backup or loaner. It was my regular ride until just over a week ago and the 2.2 tires looked fat til I got my 27.5 + .
    Still riding h/t though.

    May as well keep it. Well, until you get into the "have way too many vintage Specialized" situation like I am lol.

    It'll totally work as a commuter, I'm just saying there are better cheap options out there. This is my current "beater" to run around the neighborhood with. 88 Stumpjumper with a basic XT build of parts I've collected over the past couple years. Plus two steel S Works Stumpjumpers that are basically the same thing. Fast, light and a great ride..

    Just signed up to this site, and this is my first post
    Mine is 25 years old, the only thing left from new are the cranks, and seat post

    It's about to get it's 3rd upgrade
    either a 10x2 or 11x1 drivetrain but keeping the Rock Shox
    Still doing some research, on what's the best setup for me

    got a new seat and handlebar ordered, trying to make it more comfortable first, then will work on the drivetrain

    Make sure that's a 9/10 speed freehub before you order a 10 or 11 speed cassette, it looks like you have a 3x7 on now?

    Thanks, it is a 8 sped xtr freehub

    I am leaning more towards a 10x 2 drivetrain, so a 10 speed cassette should fit
    Though eventually will be building two new wheels

    Get a shorter stem to go with the new handlebar. 70-90mm.

    [QUOTE=MudSnow;13102569]Get a shorter stem to go with the new handlebar. 70

    I don't want to go much shorter, but I do have a slightly shorter stem on it's way. I have a stock length 130mm on it now. The one I ordered is a Easton EA90 120mm, 10 Degree rise. I decided to cancel the handlebar, and wait till the stem comes in, and see what bar will fit me the best

    For me, that would be doing it backwards.

    The new attitude about handlebars is pretty different. Depending on how much you followed fashion last time around and how much you follow it this time, you could be going up 200 mm in bar length. It really does take away from your reach to have your hands further apart.

    If your bike fits you now, just shortening your stem will mess up the fit and have no return.

    The wider bar and no stem change would give you better stability but maybe some back pain and a heavy front wheel.

    I'd suggest going through with the wide bar and getting a cheap stem, or a couple, to experiment with. When you figure out what you want in a wider bar/shorter stem setup, you can get a nicer stem if you like.

    I'm still riding my 01 Turner 5-spot Prototype too. It was the missing link between the 00 RFX and the 03 5-spot. Featured in MBA ads back in the day.

    From 1985. Dean Colonel. This photo from Sunday April 23. I ride this bike a lot.

    This bike has a twin brother built with a triple chain ring and a 2002 Marzocchi Marathon ECC airsprung fork. It works.

    The largest tires I can find go on the front. And the largest that will fit go on the back, which is 2.35 or 2.25 depending.

    I used to run pizza cutters 1.9's on these up until just 5 years ago, but the modern trend of big tires is correct, I conceded.

    Just got into mountain biking, it started with I need to do something for my health and now its an addiction. I have been riding for about a month and I now have 3 old bikes, my favorite right now is the Giant NRS 2, 26lbs 80mm front 100mm rear. My wife has gotten into too but she decided that full suspension is not for her so I got her a Mongoose NX7.3 28lbs. I needed one more bike for the fam and found a great deal on this Kona Stinky, it's a blast to ride but very heavy 37lbs.

    Anybody have any idea what I just bought for $20? I suspect a Specialized from the "specialized" writing on the seat.
    Its in pretty good shape from what i can see so far.

    It could be an old Hardrock or Rockhopper but if it is it has been repainted. Specialized like to put their name on more than the seat. Does it have a head-badge?

    It looks like it has possibly been done up at some point. Whatever the story, great buy for $20! :0)

    I've finally gone to a complete XT drivetrain. Taking into consideration my inseam, I decided to give 180mm crank arms a shot. I ordered the 2x10 XT 104bcd crankset because I'm running a 30t in the middle ring position. If I run it on a 3-ring specific crankset like my Hone, it's a little uglier. The outside of a 2-ring spider is more dressed up.

    I also swapped out my 2006 Avid Elixir R brakes for some m8000 XT 180/180 brakes. Love them!!!!






    Also... After many years of supporting Kenda, I've had to drop them due to terrible QC issues on the Nevegal X Pro.

    I'm really loving these Maxxis Ardents like crazy though!!

    Have you replaced the seals recently? I have some SC90's that I haven't used for a while and it is time for a bit of fork love there.

    The WB forks work really well though.

    26ers over 10 years old-20170603_103518.jpg 1997 Stumpjumper rebuilt as a single speed. I listed it on CL for $350 but lately I've enjoyed riding it so much that I just might keep it.

    My other bike is a 2007 Stumpjumper and I've been toying with the idea of selling both and upgrading to something new. But honestly, I think I really got lucky with both of these bikes, as I think Specialized really hit it out of the park with both of these frames.

    Love this thread, seeing bike brands I've never heard of. And I thought I was the last on a 10-year-old 26-inch bike! Here's my two Yetis, ride them all the time. The 2006 575, Rocks Anne, has been from Oregon to Virginia, ride it hard and put it up wet. I bought it new. It's had a few parts replaced. The ARC, aka Joan of ARC, is set up for bike camping. Built it light, mostly XTR except X.0 on the shifters, Masterpiece stem and seat post, King headset. Love my Yetis but have some lust for a new SB5....

    Yes, technology has changed a lot from a decade ago, but they are both still better bikes than I am a rider and I don't push them anywhere close to their capacity. I have been on my friends newer, nicer and more expensive bikes and quite frankly there is no nirvana elevated experience from the newer technology for me. I wasn't riding harder, or more comfortable. Nothing was "better".

    But that is just me. i ride just cause I enjoy riding and how I like to ride. I don't go "fast" or "hard" as that's not what I enjoy from biking. I don't need to pass someone on an uphill climb or leave them in the dirt on a straight away.

    I will admit tho, that the new gearing does really change the whole climbing aspect. but I don't need to necessarily buy a new bike for that.
    I've got a 26 voodoo hoodoo that I still ride.

    1997 Gary Fisher, somehow this thing is 30lbs, makes for a good workout though. I'm running maxxis dhf front and rear. front is 650b, back is 26". Recently switched the cantis for V brakes. Also switched the freewheel to a cassette(hopefully no more bent axles) but kept the 7spd gearing so I'm waiting on a spacer to make it work. I thought about changing to a 8 or 9spd but wasnt sure of all that had to be changed so I decided to go the cheaper route.

    I might switch to a shorter stem, I can hardly get the front up. I think it's currently 120mm or so.

    Put a new front fork on the old K2 and took it for a test ride today. Huge improvement over the 17 year old RST it replaced.

    Looking good. Vintage frames and new groupsets or other new bits don't always look happy together but you nailed it.

    2000 GT XCR-3000, new SID RCT3 fork is the final upgrade, everything else has been changed to modern tech and the i-drive system is still super efficient 18 years after being introduced in 1999. 30mm wide hookless carbon rims on solid 9/10mm thru-qr hubs, 1x9 drop stop chainring setup, super flat pedals, 26x2.1" XC tires, 100mm lightweight air suspension (Monarch RT3/SID RCT3) with custom made offset bushings, 160/140mm rotors, the bike is light and efficient even trough gnarly trails with 2' drops. I don't race and I can't shred as fast as the bike could because of eye problems, but sure is sweet, old school and up to date, and a lot of fun to take trough very technical slow paced trackstanding twisted trails and double diamond trails with up to 2' drops.

    Still on a 10-year old Intense. I have to admit that I'm shopping around but this is doing the job for now.

    1995 Kona Explosif

    I just rebuilt my 1995 Kona Explosif last year when I got a Marzocchi Z-2 Atom Bomb to complete my build. It's the only production bike that was ever made with bi-ovalized Columbus Max tubing. I've got some great memories of riding this bike from the late 90's.

    Other special parts reused from past bikes:

    Avid SD-Ultimate brake levers
    Chris King 1 1/8" headset
    Sun-Ringle front hub
    Shimano Deore XT M730 pedal from the 80's

    I just rebuilt this guy. It's a 2007 Maverick Durance that I got NOS 2-3 years ago.

    26ers over 10 years old-img_2676.jpg

    • 2018 Fox 32 FLOAT 26 150mm Performance fork
    • Easton EC70 Trail wheels
    • Panaracer Soar tires
    • SRAM GX Eagle cranks/rear derailleur/shifter/cassette/chain
    • Shimano XT M8000 brakes
    • Hope rotors/pedals/bottom bracket/skewer/bar plugs/top cap
    • Shimano Pro Tharsis stem/handlebar/seatpost
    • Blackspire Snaggletooth 32t N/W chainring
    • FSA Impact Pro integrated headset
    • Race Face grips/saddle

    Still a friggin' awesome bike. Holds its own with many newer suspension designs for sure.

    These are all well past 10 years old but each is still ridden at least once a week.

    1988 Fat Chance with modern XT v brakes and Michilen tires, Salsa stem and Scott bullmoose bars from the 90s, and everything else is period correct XT M730

    1995 Yo Eddy I've posted before but upgraded recently with a shorter (100mm) Thomson stem and wider Answer riser bars. It's far more comfortable and aggressive feeling now compared to the old 140mm stem and narrow flat bars

    1993 Yo Eddy I'm just starting a build on. I might sell or trade once it's built since it's a tad small for me. It'll have a 1st gen XTR M900 build when it's done

    I also have these old bikes - I don't have the heart to get rid of them nor the energy to sell them:

    • 2004 Klein Palomino XV upgraded to full 3x9 Deore XT M770
    • 1996 Gary Fisher Joshua X upgraded to Rock Shox Duke front / Cane Creek Cloud Nine rear and full 3x9 Deore XT M750
    • 1994 Trek 930 with Softride stem and upgraded to full 3x9 Deore LX M580

    Thanks!

    It's a 10-50 cassette. It's the only Eagle cassette range SRAM makes and there aren't any aftermarket ones available.

    Not to go too far off-topic but it's amazing how well the Eagle stuff shifts. I've always been a dyed-in-the-wool Shimano guy but this 1x12 kit is really something. I've already converted this bike to GX Eagle, my SC Tallboy LTc to X01 Eagle, and I'm getting ready to build up a Lynskey 29'er hardtail with GX Eagle.

    This one turned 20 last spring. It doesn't see as much trail time as it used to, but still gets ridden. The addition of disc tabs on the frame have allowed me to swap between 26" mtb wheels and 700c cyclocross wheels for different types of rides.

    Just started rebuilding my '97 Bontrager Privateer Comp XT. Been browsing new bikes but don't see anything I like. Currently looking for a good company to re-pop the decals and strip and paint the frame.

    Also have a minty-fresh 2000 Specialized FSR Enduro.

    Nice Bonty.
    Head over to the Vintage, Retro, and Classic forum for some input on the decals. Seems like someone over there had a good source.

    I used Velocals to reproduce the decals on my Maverick. The only thing they had to work from were some pictures I took with my iPhone and some rough measurements I took. The results were simply outstanding.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I browsed their site but didn't see my Privateer Comp on there. I'll give 'em a call.

    They'll make 'em up custom for you. Just send 'em pictures (they'll explain the process). The Maverick decals you see on their website are the ones they generated based on the photos/info I sent to them.

    The 98' is going to have 98' Bomber on it soon.

    Beauties.

    '92 AMP in Egypt

    I have put close to 900 kms out here in Cairo. There is a great place called Wadi Degla with lots of cool people riding it too. It has been a joy.

    Bike for a buddy.

    2005 era Trek frame. Nashbar rigid fork. 2008 era X-9 9 speed. 2008 era XT Crank. New Level T disc brakes off my 2018 Blur. NOS Flow EX Rims on XT hubs. WTB Vigilante Tires

    Everything was from my parts bin except the wheels. The original wheels had a dent that made ghetto tubeless unworkable.
