    Hope my bike is worthy enough to be posted...

    It's a 1999 Giant Rincon SE with a Rockshox xc30 for, new stem and handlebars, and all else stock as of now. This bike has been so awesome and has taken a beating.
    Along with the Giant is my 2003 K2 Attack 3.0 full suspension bike. Not ridden near as much as the Giant since it was my first main bicycle, but still has a place in my heart.

    26'er marching on...

    Did someone mention "tis the season"?

    There's nothing wrong with my current UZZI-SL frame.

    BUT

    I came across something on eBay I couldn't pass up. A NOS "new old stock" UZZI-SL frame identical to one I have. It just arrived and it's brand spanking new. It's been hanging on a bike shop wall as a show piece all these years. A 2K. frame back in the day I picked it up for what people are selling used rear triangles for this frame. My plan is to rebuild my fork through PUSH industries and then switch over my current build to this frame. New frame new shock new pivot point bearing. As you all know my current Intense has lasted me 13 years. This one should have the same longevity. At least get me through a season or two up until I'm ready to get a current frame.



    Could this be the last NOS "new old stock" UZZI-SL left? ^^^

    And here's the frame that's been rocking for 13 years and still going strong. The build that will be moved over to my new frame.

    Thanks, and very cool you've got an original Tracer. Is it still in use?

    Yeah I'm pretty stoked. All these years that I've had my original SL I always had my eyes and ears open for any frames or rear triangles in case my frame ever failed. I've seen used SL frames and used rear triangles but never jumped to buy one. When this popped up I couldn't pass it up. I've never seen a NOS one in the marketplace. I've always loved this bike why not extend the life of it instead of dropping serious coin on a current frame.

    The new frame is an 02' my old one is an 01'. The only change in those two years was the decal set.

    Alas, my frame is relegated to hanging up in the garage. Its a medium, bought it in 2000 not knowing I fit a large. Still had a great time on it for a number of years.

    Nice Shawn. It looks like there's no rear brake. And those wheels wouldn't work with rim brakes anyway. The frame is too old for disk tabs on the frame. So there's no way of setting up a rear brake? I wouldn't ride that on the street any further than maybe to the gym and back.

    Hey, you musta read my other post. Yes, you are right. I may ride it the two miles to the gym. I don't see a problem without a rear brake, as long as the road is dry. And, I don't need a rear brake when I'm on the rollers.

    Rode this '02 Superlight on some fun trails in and around St. George Utah during a recent visit.
    Really enjoyed the nimble handling and quick acceleration. It was very noticeable compared to my 29er.

    Maybe eBay it so it can be brought back to life. Great bikes and still a viable suspension design.

    Here's my other Klein. Its paint is called Sedona Orange, which is hard to capture in photos. It's a 2000 Adroit Pro with a custom-made 1 1/8" headset and a Trigon carbon fork. It gets used for running errands, and depending on which wheels and tires it has, it weighs between 17 and 18 pounds.

    I just got this Kona A. These are pics the PO sent me before the bike arrived. The bike is in the shop right now so I don't have access to it at the moment, and then I'll be going out of town until the new year. I'll take more pics of it then. I have plans for this thing (http://forums.mtbr.com/26/first-buil...ew-998120.html).

    That's Skeggs on the SF peninsula. Probably could have waited a few days for the trails to dry a bit, just couldn't help myself. The slimy, greasy mud caused me a few a$$ puckering moments today.

    The only thing crying out for change is the fork. The Judy TT is a very basic sprung fork with elastomer damping. Even a cheap fork today with oil damping will be better. Hydraulic brakes if you want a slightly nicer feel, other than that just ride it :0)

    Before selling my last bike (26" BMC SpeedFox), I put it back to stock. So had a set of wheels, XT Group and a few other quality bits waiting to be ridden again.
    A bargain on a Scott Scale RC frame and Fox Factory Terralogic (both new) had me build this amazing hardtail :

    2015 27.5 frame (crash replacement) with 2011 RS coil Lyric fork and 26" wheels. I'm not sold on the cost to benefit ratio to update to 27.5 wheels and I love the plush ride of the Lyric fork.

    I used to run 2.4" Rubber Queens on my Firebird and the diameter ended up being about the same as a 27.5. Great bike.

    Picked up this 2013 trek remedy 9. Replaced the front tire and just put a valve in the fork to take away the renown squishy feeling that the 2013 trek/fox ctd fork had. Overall it is working great here in SoCal, we will see here soon how it holds up to VA riding.Post your 26er Pics-bike-.jpg

    Nice wheelz!

    I've got a mint set of Spins still hanging around too.
    Gotta get around to building up something retro to sport them one of these days.

    Here's my 1999 Yeti ARC. It's in need of some love, but
    still a great handling bike.

    New toy ... almost built!

    Here's the latest obsession to partner with my hardtail GT ... should be fun once it's done, had to wait for a direct mount stem - final bit of the puzzle. Dropped off to the bike building genius earlier today. Can't wait!

    Nice! I miss my Firebird sometimes. Fun bike.

    I sold it for my SB66, which just got a Pike, and I swapped the Lyrik to my old Iron Horse 7point3, which just won't die (and rides like a heavier Firebird). Need to change the spacers in the Lyrik to put it back at 170mm.

    26" vt1

    My first full suspension bike, paid $600.00 on e-bay + about $200.00 for upgrades. Never ridden any another full suspension, so I can't compare it to anything. Rides great to me.

    Here's my 26'er. It's a 2010 Cannondale RZ140. I just finished rebuilding it this morning with XT 1x11 34t chainring and 11-42t cassette, XTR Shifter, Rebuilt RP2 shock, rebuilt Float 32 w/upgraded 15mm thru axle lowers, SLX brakes 180f/160f, and new Stan's Flow EX rims laced to XT hubs.

    I'm nursing a broken thumb at the moment so no riding for now, but I think it's going to work pretty well.

    Sorry but you must be mistaken. How could a 26er possibly be better than a 29er?

    26 ain't dead. I've recently swapped on Pike, Monarch, Reverb, I9/Flow wheels, and RF Sixc bars.

    That's right, 26er ain't dead yet. Yep, got a new 2016 Fox 36 Float 26, new Syntace megaforce 2 50mm stem and Vector 7075 bar, and a Push rear shock volume kit. Oh, and a brand new 2011 Trek remedy 9 frameset. Not sure if I should built it as a back up bike or save it as a future replacement to my 2012 remedy 9.

    Sweet build. I'm liking that lots. I was between and sb6 and the uprising. Both phenomenal bikes, even against brand new 27.5 bikes.

    Thanks. Its odd sometimes sticking with what the industry is trying to kill, but I already had another 26" wheelset and a Lyrik so why not. When I was at Colorado Cyclist ordering my new wheelset, the guys asks 27.5 or 29? He seemed genuinely excited when I said 26.

    I considered a few bikes when I was replacing my Pivot Firebird (2012 26" version) last summer. I like the Evil too, but none around here that I know of. Also considered the Transition Suppressor frame as there's a shop that carries them close to me, but I got a really good deal on a barely used 2014 SB66 frame and being an hour from Golden, its hard to say no to a Yeti.

    Well I went the opposite route most people seem to be taking these days. Selling my 29er HT and picked up this FS. I am really excited about the find.

    Found it about 15 minutes from me. Tomac Automatic. I didn't know much about Tomac before I found it, but I'm really excited about riding this puppy. Did 15 miles on her the day after I got it. While it definitely doesn't have the outright climbing and flatland speed of the 29er, she goes great on the downhills and handles like it's on rails. I think i'll have more fun overall on it.

    Anyone else have a Tomac or know anything special about them? Did I make a bad move going from a 29er back to a 26?

    He sure did ,last year Jeff Emig did a feature on them both on tv during one of the supercross races ,Eli's dad and him ,they were on mountain bikes ,and talked about the tomac bicycle company I think ,they were considered a higher end bike back in the day ,one bike model was an eli ,I saw a new nos eli frame on ebay last year for sale .

    That would have been cool to see! Yea they made some high end stuff, even carbon, etc... I wouldn't call this one high end, but good stuff (x9, Deore LX, Fox RP2). I think this one sold for around $2200 in 08.

    It was priced well and never ridden much. We'll see how the move from a 29er Ht to 26 FS works, but I think it will be all around more fun. Probably not faster, but more fun (the key)

    Your post just made me sad, that Tomac is just "the guy that had that company", not a mountain biking legend.

    Its like saying Jeremy McGrath is just a guy that rode for Honda.

    I read his bio posted ,yes he is a legend in the mtb world ,excuse my not knowing who he was ,I just got back into bikes a couple years ago after retiring from atv mx a few years ago ,the last time I rode mountain bikes was about 20 years ago, a lot has happened and changed since then .

    I found the post a little lacking in recognition of John Tomac too.

    On the other hand, I didn't know his son's name was Eli and I also am not as familiar with the current crop of mtb pros.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    When viewed from left side, the whole thing looks like an inscription which says SHRED in some obscure language

    And wow you have color matched saddle rails to brakes!

    This is an older picture mind you. The levers have been moved.

    Well, 26" wheels are big enough.

    650b just fits the modern trend of longer wheelbases and ditching the front derailer better. And still it wouldn't have conquered the market without heavy concerted effort by the industry.

    I used the winter downtime to tear my bike down install a pile of parts I bought, won on ebay, and got as gifts. I just got out the other day for the first ride of the year and had a blast. The upgrade from my worn out Deore 3x9 to XT 1x11 was well worth it. I love how the new drivetrain shifts and the ratios with a 30T chainring are perfect for where I ride. The 1.7lb weight loss isn't bad either.

    I've had several people tell me that I need to upgrade to a new 650b trail bike, which I may do eventually, but I love my 26" hardtail. I'm planning on keeping this bike forever even if it becomes my commuter.

    Dude, kickstands have to be just about the stupidest things you can nail to a bike. You're carrying around that extra weight for what? So you can leave your bike teetering upright ready to fall over at the slightest breeze and get bashed up? Why not just lay it on the ground to begin with, it can't fall off that.

    No it hasn't! We were out on Saturday, beautiful crisp winters day. In fact it is very mild and tame for the time of year. Stop being a woos and get out ;0)

    I haven't got a round to taking it off. That's the next item on my list to do.

    Be serious. No one who uses Strava would have a bell.

    I told the guy to take it off and he said he didn't know how to get it off, I kid you not.

    2011 Yeti ASR5 Carbon built the way I like it. 19lbs, 5" travel front and rear, 180/160 brakes, rides like it's on rails because of the 12x142 rear and the Lefty front with a wide carbon rim and a 2.4" Conti X-King at 20psi.

    Lots of little personal touches. There ain't another one out there like it. Now I just have to save up some cash for the rear carbon wheel build. Hub alone is gonna cost $450.

    It's weird seeing a Yeti with a lefty, but it seems so right. That is certainly a unique build. At sub-20lbs it is a very impressive bike, too.

    2003 Giant Warp DS3

    My rebuilt 2003 Giant Warp DS3. Last spring I was going to buy a new Mtn bike but instead tore apart and rebuilt my warp with components I picked myself. The total rebuild cost me about $750. I ended up with a truly one of a kind bike.

    My 2001 Schwinn Rocket 88, The last year of USA made Schwinns. I bought it new and it has seen some upgrades over the years. I took this pic this weekend on my first ride with a 1x10 setup using Saint M820 shifting, raceface 34t narrow-wide and xt 11-36. It ran flawless, I love Saint!

    I worked in a bike shop for a period when those Schwinn rockets were being sold. It was one of our favorite bikes to take out of the store and down some stairs whenever we were bored. Great bike.

    I don't think many people know about these Rocket 88 bikes, most know Homegrown. These have Gold Label frames just like Homegrown. It really is a great riding bike. I loved that it came equipped with hydraulic disc brakes and an adjustable spring air/oil fork back in '01. When I tell someone I own a Schwinn, I always add "it's a bike store Schwinn, not a Walmart schwinn".

    Well, they aren't great photos but this is a result of the last ride at Lincoln Parish Park after years of it sitting or doing some laps around the hood with the kids. Now it's at the shop for a rebuild. I'll post some better ones when I get it back. '90 Giant Rincon that I took to college.

    1996 Schwinn Homegrown

    Post your 26er Pics-hg1small.jpgPost your 26er Pics-hg3small.jpgPost your 26er Pics-hg2small.jpg

    Purchased frame off craigslist, 19", NOS, no stickers, serial #HS6304. Assuming it's a 1996 by the red/black dart theme, but the tt cable stops run along the top of the tube, not along the side. It's fun to ride.

    I have an '03 started WW bike that I have just got around to trying to update, at only 14lbs and failing to find many 26" v-brake WW parts, so have decided to stick with 26" but have at least moved onto a disc based bike but have found that things have moved on and that the marketing dudes have decided that we need 200 types of BB and headsets, steerer options that makes my simple update a living hell.
    Still will end up with a sweet sub 14lb ride, as I am a lite, small rider, so I don't trash much stuff.

    26" Maverick ML8 / just built up

    Post your 26er Pics-img_0106.jpg
    I've posted on a few other threads on mtbr … but I'm so proud of my "new" Maverick ML8. I picked of the frame from Ethan in 2012 I think, and it's been hanging on a peg in my workshop until now. I transferred everything but the fork and the drivetrain from my 2006 Durance. This thing is so dreamy. The new Fox 36 is really an eye-opener compared to my DUC32; so sensitivity.

    * Maverick ML8 165mm frame
    * XTR M9000 1-11
    * Hope Tech II 183mm brakes
    * Hope ceramic BB
    * King hubs, Mavic 819 UST, 2.35 Nevegals
    * Cromag saddle, bars
    * Renthal stem
    * Maverick dropper post
    * Fox Factory RC2 160mm 36
    * Candy 4Ti pedals

    I don't really know much about Kona but I've always liked the font, it's sort of punk, or the opposite of brands like Specialized or Scott.

    If you can ride it just now, get rid of that ridiculously long stem and you'll be sorted. Try a 50mm.

    I was just thinking about that yesterday. The stem is a 100mm. I have to cut down the handlebar because its very long. Also thinner tires. The tires are 26 x 2.20 right now and i might downsize it to 1.95. With all this being said, I hope it'll fit me.

    Don't cut the bars until you get a shorter stem. A short stem and narrow bars is not a happy combination.

    100mm is very long. I think you like the way a shorter stem feels, once you get used to it hat is.

    Narrower tyres won't make the bike fit you any better ;0) Why do you want narrower tyres?

    I will cut the handlebar after I get the 50mm stem.

    I thought the 2.20 on the tires were the height, but its the width right? I wanted to make the bike shorter because I'm only 5'7.

    To be honest I don't know if they make a "low profile" mountain bike tire, maybe if you find some that are 2.0 or smaller they may be lower then the 2.2+ tires

    Please don't! If you go into a bike shop and ask for smaller tyres because your bike's too big they will look at you as if you are mental. Forget the tyres, they won't change the fit of the bike at all.

    Get the stem, see how that goes. To be honest, if the bike's still too bike I'd sell it and buy one the right size.

    My now 15 year old beat up pos that I love got over 5k miles on it according to my computer. Its changing a lot over the next week I got a new crank, rear derailleur, new cassettes, brake and shifter cables w/housings, new front tire and a few other things incoming. Today I got in my new rear tire new shifter, the headlight you can see, new toe clips, grips, bar ends,and the new cages on it. My only minor complaint about it right now is I bought 2 25 ounce camelbak bottles for it and there to big to fit in the 2nd bottle cage booooo guess ill have to buy a 21 ounce.

    I also have an old iron(2003) that I used up until last year when I got my SantaCruz. Very good bike.
    I want to refurbish it to use it as my back up.

    I just picked up a 2003 Kona Fire Mountain, on my way home from my annual Jeep/camping trip in Big Bear, CA.
    20" frame, mostly stock from what I can tell. Was one of the few decent craigslist finds that I saw.

    Nice. One of the really cools things about cycling is that there are millions of bikes out there. Loads of people buy nice bikes then hardly use them, sometimes don't use them at all, and you can pick up lovely bikes without spending a fortune. My last bike was new but only because it was seriously reduced. There is no way I'd buy a new bike at full retail these days.

    Cool bike, but sell that thing and get the right size bike man. I'm 5'7", and have ridden specialized for years. We fit between a small and medium, depending on inseam, even at the extremes. Even with a 30mm stem, it's still going to be way too big.

    Remember when Cotic released that "26 ain't dead" video featuring a 26" Soul and then less than a year later they cancelled that frame and only 27.5" Soul is being produced now?

    But in the end it shows these three frame names, in order:
    BFe
    Rocket
    Soul.

    And it also mentions Soul in the text comment to the video.


    (26" Soul would be the the frame I'd buy if I didn't have a 2006 Cove Handjob, so it's the first Cotic frame that comes to my mind)

    My 26'er has been sitting around getting fat, and I'm ok with it, I'm actually encouraging it to get even fatter.

    I suspect possibly some wider rims with bigger tires perhaps.

    My 1996 Gary Fisher Joshua Y rebuild.. Put it together last week from the frame out (stripped my Paragon in the process) and she had her maiden voyage this past saturday. She took the hills, rocks, and roots like a champ! Glad I invested $150 in the frame, and I'm really happy the bike didn't fall apart mid-ride.. hadn't done a bike build in about 20 years lol.Post your 26er Pics-joshua2.jpg

    Still kicking. Cleaned up my 2005 Iron Horse 7 Point 3 over the weekend, need to get a front brake adapter, but should be ready for a few Trestle or Keystone days this summer. I don't ride park enough to justify a better DH bike, but it keeps the DH days off my Yeti. Might splurge on the new Flow rims and have them laced to the old hubs. These old rims are pretty beat.

    This is my wife's GT I-Drive that I built for her a few years ago. My buddy gave me a heads up when he saw that Nashbar had these new/old stock frames and I ended up picking this one up for $100. As far as I can tell from images found online it's a 2006. My wife loves her GT. She learned how to ride trails on this bike and as her enthusiasm has grown, some parts have been upgraded. The latest upgrades are the Shimano Deore hydros and the Gravity Dropper post. Tomorrow is the first ride with the new post and we're both stoked.

    My only 26er now. The city destoryer, Lg 2009 Giant Boulder SE...



    I bought the full stock bike used for $150 after my Meta SX got stolen. I put parts on it slowly, and only parts that were seriously discounted.

    My upcoming build is a 2015 Dartmoor Hornet that will get 27.5 wheels and a 140mm/150mm travel fork. Maybe a no-Boost Yari? Not sure on fork yet?
    Goodbye '95 ZJ. Just so you know, transfering box of left behind womens panties to next truck. Thank you ZJ!
