    Here's my Prophet MX1. Love it, but may switch back to the Talas 36 and DHX 5.0 air to improve the climbing.

    Nothing too much to look at but it gets ridden every day and is definitely the smoothest rolling bike on these streets. I absolutely love this bike

    Here's my 5ft sons bike in trail setup. I'm done messing with it. He's a lil short so hopefully he'll be on it for a while. Weight is just over 25lbs. It's a pretty stout build imo.

    What bike is that? And is it set up 26+?
    Looking for a Medium Scott Scale frame, preferably a 2012 in 26.

    If you're referring to me, that's a FM076 frame with 3.0/2.8 Ranger tires front/rear, its quite Plus'd.

    So I posted this bike on here when it was new in 2005 and used to be a lot more active but just completed a major update in the last few weeks.

    It was supposed to be just a new rear wheel, so had a custom one made up and accidentally specc'd an XD compatible rear hub...oops. Well then I HAD TO go 11 speed. Got that all put together and discovered the old AVID Juicy 7's were shot. So....

    New hope rear hub, with mavic 719 wheel. Full xt 8000 series stuff 1 x 11. New XT brakes. 8020 front with 203 mm rotor, 8000 series with a 180 in the back. Have had the hope front with mavic 729 in the front for a few years.
    Ghetto tubeless setup and new maxxis tires (rear is on backorder.)

    A grand in parts is still cheaper than a new bike...lol, and I kind of like not having a front derailleur.

    Very nice, have a friend who just picked up this same bike slightly used only.
    He's considerably faster on it than his older enduro.

    I'm now "heckled" often when we ride together, ha.

    DJ bikes can be very fun and versatile.

    I can see a few priority upgrades there. First, much lighter tires, unless you're after Hookworms specifically. Then, a dedicated SS rear wheel to ditch the tensioner, or an RD on the current one, because the dangly roller thing down there could as well be a shifty dangly roller thing.

    Cheers for the replay man, total bike noob here, haven't been on a bike for 10-15 or so years now lol (last bike was a target special full suspension bike) so yeah any parts on the bike are new to me, I added some more pics to my album folder, shows the parts off more...

    You're welcome!

    That roller tensioner above the chainring is seriously old school, and is also not needed with a true singlespeed setup this frame can run. I guess the previous owner had to make do with this geared-specific wheel that's not intended for track ends. The QR skewer isn't clamping hard enough to prevent axle slip, so it's slammed all the way forward and the chain slack and wear are compensated for by the rollers.

    The cockpit might be too low with a flat bar but it's totally up to your preferences.

    You may also want to check the fork function and maybe overhaul it. People tend to neglect forks on their jump/play bikes.

    ah ok yeah I did a decent ride of it yesterday and the back wheel kept moving to the left, was thinking I wasn't tighting it hard enough, but I get to the tightest point the lever down to clamp down, any tighter and I feel like I'm gonna snap it lol....and yeah that roller thing at the crank doesn't seem to do much except make a rolling sound, crank has some sort of crackling to it also, and not sure if the back axle is seized a little or brakes are on too tight has when you free roll the wheel off the ground, it will stop faster then the front wheel does...

    Regarding the forks, they don't move at all, feels like I have a none front suspension bike, seized or just adjusted to be that way???

    Overall when I got it I knew I would need to put some attention to it, but for $100AUD think it was a ok deal (Second Hand store I got it from has no clue what brand/model it was)

    If the rear brake is dragging then it should be audible as a permanent rubbing sound the disc makes as it passes through the caliper. With wheel misalignment in the track ends, disc rubbing is very likely.

    If memory serves, that fork model has "air preload" feature and a crappy, failure prone Chinese rebound cartridge. The Schrader valve that can be seen on the top cap is the air preload. Release air and check compression. If the fork still won't move, then it's likely the damper that's failed. It can be fixed by an open-bath conversion achieved by drilling it carefully with 1.5 mm drill bit in very specific places, and locking down the floating piston inside. Either way the fork should be overhauled, and a failed damper will be obvious upon disassembly as it's the only assembly that won't compress.

    Yeah I press the valve and no air came out lol, back brake seems to be ok, no noise when coasting and what not, lever is smooth and are super touchy, almost came off a few times since I'm not used to them (first disc brake bike)...

    The single speed is something to get used to, feel like I just on a big ass BMX lol...

    Specialised Hardrock A1 Comp 1999 x2
    The one with the Orange Manitou Magnum R Forks I owned from new from and is now a 1x1 (Surly drivetrain) with upgraded wheels and goes like a Bullet. May change the fork back to a rigid at some point but need to find the right one to match.

    The second I got used from ebay and is now a 1x9 and has road tires on for general commuting duties/going up hills.
    Both with upgraded V-Brakes and levers. And still using square taper BB's!
    Considering buying a third, though may see if I can buy a 26er Rockhopper frame and use some of the leftover components for a 1x8.

    After 6 years of thinking it over (geared or SS? Which fork? Which hubs and rims? Dropper post or not?), I've finally built my 2006 Handjob for its 3rd incarnation.





    It's the very same frame that made me believe steel is real back in 2007.

    As a finishing touch it needs something like a rainbow-ejaculating penis headbadge, I guess. After all, my other ride is a buttplug!

    Here is my first real bike, bought the frame for $5 and built it up with free parts from my local co-op bike junkyard. 05 Giant Boulder SE 1x7. Also bar ends on a narrow bar because I sort of miss my old Sledgehammer.

    For my all-around riding, modern DJ geometry and a rigid bike remain the best choice. Here's the latest iteration in dialing in the millimeters and weight vs strength vs reliability vs low-maintenance.

    The front hub is a Paul Fhub Disc, bolt-up version; its flat axle faces hopefully won't mess up the custom paintjob on that Surly Instigator fork. The stem is an Azonic Barretta Evo, 40 mm in a rare 15 rise that works really well for a lowered front end.



    (The idea to use both sunlight and shadow to take the photo was a bad one, as it turned out.)

    Intense Spider XVP

    This little bike is a rocketship and so much fun to ride! It's nimble and can be threaded through the tiniest of gaps at speed even with it's wide 787 mm bars I did have to drill out the frame for the dropper (and subsequently removed the dropper after realizing I'm not a fan). Overall, an incredibly fun bike to ride and my go-to for any new trails where I'm not sure what to expect because I know it can handle anything I throw at it.

    Just let my 2007 Dawg go this past weekend (XL). I picked it up a few years ago for my kid to ride. He didn't ride it much...spends his time on a Yamaha R6 now.

    I used it a fair amount as a spare to 2012 SC Heckler. Recent 2018 Kona Process 153 purchase means it's no longer used at all.

    Found a new XL sized owner...had a few battle scars but buffed up nice. Sold for $400.

    Here's mine, early 2000s Jamis Cross country 1.0, I decided to learn my way around a bike on it so I stripped it down. The only original parts are the frame & seat post, and I'm going to try using the original rear derailleur (Acer 7sp), I'm waiting on an 11-40 8sp cassette to run as a 1x8, when done I'll post up an update
    I added a Manitou R7 fork, Shimano hydraulic discs, short funn stem, Easton riser bar, ergon saddle, raceface respond crank with 36t nw chaining, waiting on the 11-40 8sp cassette and sram x4 shifter to complete it.

    Good job, but you really need longer brake lines, especially the front one. Manitou forks support a very tidy and convenient routing but it takes a longer line than most other suspension forks need in the same travel range. The routing is under the down tube, behind damper side of the crown, without touching anything between arch and lever.

    About right line length, but low resolution image:


    A better image, line is a bit short but shows the idea:



    The line is best tied to the arch with force so as to restrict movement and rub. A "fourth hand" cable tool helps doing up zip ties. Manitou arches differ over years and models but there's always a suitable location for a zip tie.

    Thanks psycho, I figured on putting a longer line up front but I appreciate the pictures and tips, I'll get some coming. I've left the bike hanging upside down in the rafters for a couple years (I know...) and the shock and brakes were all wet when I got it down the other day. I've got shock oil on the way already, I'm debating if I want to install a remote lockout (have it just have never used one). Not much longer though and I'll be able to get it dirty again!

    Check out this Absolute+ tuning thread before you fit a MILO: http://forums.mtbr.com/shocks-suspen...ck-687754.html

    It may solve your damper setup without the need for extra complexity.

    Manitou forks are seriously underrated. I don't normally post so much but your R7 got me going.

    That's great thanks! I'll do some reading and get some shims ordered. I guess I'm in the clyde category, I'm 235-240 working on getting back down to 200ish, the original fork was completely useless so when I picked up the r7 it was amazing! I did little light riding like this, just the rear v brake lol before I decided to go all out. It does seem extra squishy though so I'll do some fine tuning!

    2012 Scalpel 26er

    I'm too stubborn to do anything but a 26er...ok I really like 26er's even if everyone is doing 29er's these days

    Anyways, I just built a 2012 Cannondale Scalpel 26er, and yep it's harder to find parts for 26ers but still possible. Here's to all of us 26er's out there!

    cheers, DJ

    I built this one up almost 20 years ago(!), starting with a swapmeet-sourced Pacific-branded frame.

    For reasons I can only guess at, the resulting headtube angle is fairly laid back, even with this very short suspension fork that was another swapmeet find.
    The frame's seller told me this frame came equipped with a dual-crown, faux DH fork that "weighed a ton".

    Oddly enough, this bike has proven more fun to ride than a few of my higher-spec builds (it rips through Manzanita Trail in Auburn), and has been my go-to for our annual duathlon race (where I have to leave my bike nearly unattended in the canyon while hitch-hiking to the start line of the running leg of the race).
    I'm more of a lightweight XC rider so have little concern over this frame's durability, even though it was originally sold out of a department store!

    Is the angle on the bars intentional? Looks a bit strange. Otherwise, great bike

    A Nashbar fork looks like a good fit for this bike:
    https://www.bikenashbar.com/cycling/...rk-ns-cmf-base

    You may want to go with a shorter stem and a higher rise handlebar.

    Also get some plastic (cheap, functional, leg skin friendly, and don't look beat up after years of use) platform pedals; the ones on the photo are only placeholders.

    I wouldn't be SS-converting that frame because the most feasible way to do it is with a tensioner, and having a nice, two-roller, spring-loaded, chainline-adjustable tensioner is almost as much complexity as having a fully functional RD.

    Typical Troll! :-p
    Steel and orange play well together, as always.

    Was it hard to find a straight steerer suspension fork?

    Hi J, thanks I am a sucker for an orange bike As for the fork its a Rockshock Reba RL 100mm travel and its still listed on their website. With a lockout its a great match for the Troll. I brought the 27.5 wheel size version with the idea of running that size wheels in the Troll with some Schwalbe G-One tyres.
