    My first post in this Forum

    I have recently started riding off road aka Mountain bikes so I went out and got me a use bike to start. I need to find the rule for the size of the picture and I will add it to this post.

    Set up singlespeed with Salsa Cromoto fork. It rides really well on the right trails.

    Currently set up as a 1x9. Super fast and quick. I enjoy riding these bikes way more than I did my rigid 29er. Just more fun on the trail, even if they are a bit slower in the rough stuff.

    I posted this in the On-One forum but I guess it should be in here too. Built this up for my eighteen-year-old son about three-weeks ago and he hasn't even ridden it yet! He has exams just now and won't go out.

    It's an On One 456 steel frame with a tasty mixture of quality parts. Looks cool too. Going to put a Maxxis tyre on the front, just for the matching yellow logo ;0)

    Thats a great looking bike! How much travel is that fork putting out, any idea on the HA? Gotta appreciate a kid that voluntarily focuses on his studies when there is a new trail ripping machine right outside their door waiting for them...

    This is a 120mm fork which gives a 67.2deg static head angle. The frame is designed to work ok with forks from 100mm but can take up to 150mm, which would give a head angle of 65.6 degrees. Most users seem to agree that around 140mm feels the best. I have a Rock Shox Sektor here that I can set to 140mm so I'll let him try it like this for a while then put the longer fork on and see what he thinks of that.

    Just spend an hour in the shed trimming the centre braking knobs on a Maxxis DHRII so that I can put it on the front of this bike. Just so I can have two yellow Maxxis logos on it. Is that very sad? ;0)

    Out of curiosity, what allows these bike to run such a large variance of travel such as 100mm-150mm? Is it because it is a steel bike with a stronger than aluminum headtube? I was curious if I could run a longer travel fork on my Dragon Team or Monocog frame without any stress issues due to it being steel. Am I wrong to think so, beyond geometry...

    Generally, the frame maker will suggest what travel the frame can handle. Often, people don't listen to those suggestions. Just because a frame is steel, that doesn't mean that it's stronger than another frame made from a different material.

    Thank you, to expand on that, What allows the frame to withstand more travel than another with similar HA properties? Is it merely just the builders suggestions? Im asking because I find it odd that a On One 456 can take such drastic change in travel when a Monocog or Dragon Team frame cant, is this just because Redline and Jamis dont recommend it, so in fact I run the same risks as I would on the 456?

    Do you mean head angle properties? Head angle doesn't have anything to do with the strength of a frame. Frame materials, building techniques, tube properties and gussets plus other things I'm sure I'm missing will dictate the strength of a frame. Also, a rider has a lot to do with what a frame can handle. Some people can ride a DH course fast on a XC bike and never break anything. While other people can ride the same course on a DH bike and break stuff.

    If the frame is built strong enough to take a long fork then obviously it will handle a shorter one but, in my opinion, the real answer is, they don't. What I mean by that is sure, you can make a bike physically take the stress of a long fork but I can't see how you could make the geometry work well with both a 100 and 150mm up front.

    With respect to your own bikes, manufacturers always tell you to stick to the fork length the bike came with. They are covering themselves as a longer fork will alter the way the bike rides and stress the frame more. That's the theory anyway.

    Yes, a longer fork will change the way the bike feels but although, in theory, the head-tube might snap off, people have been slapping longer forks on their bikes for years and it's not very often you hear of a head-tube failure. It does happen but I'm inclined to think that it has more to do with how you are riding the bike than the length of fork. A big guy doing jumps is going to put a heck of a lot more stress on the head-tube than an average guy riding flat trails.

    In practice, I reckon you're fine to add another 20mm or so to your fork. It seems like nothing but you will feel even that small change. More than that can feel pretty weird. As for the frame stress of a big change, who knows. If it's tamer trails I'm inclined to think a longer fork would be fine but I'd worry about jumping it.

    This is what I figured. I just find it interesting that most bike manufacturers only recommend +/- 20mm of travel but On One is ballsy enough to say 100mm-150mm. I just didn't know if there was something different about the structural integrity of their headtubes compared to others.

    All you can really say is that they have designed the frame to take the stress of a 150mm fork. Other frames may be as strong, but unless the manufacturer says so, you're guessing.

    I don't know but my guess is that they've made a 150mm frame and made sure the BB hight is enough to let you run a 100mm fork without bouncing your feet off the ground like a demented clown! Beyond that, I can't see how you can make a frame work correctly for both extremes.

    The nice thing about steel is that is has more progressive failure modes than aluminium. It's far more likely to bend or start cracking than suddenly shear clean off. Would I run a long fork on a steel frame not designed for it? Probably not, but if you chose to there is half a chance you'll spot trouble before it puts you in the hospital.

    The first bike I've built, 2nd hardtail I've owned. SPD pedals not yet fitted. Also odd wheels because I can't afford a rear wheel yet and I want to build my own. Weighs about 13kg

    ^nice, it's like a compact road bike or CX-Ready bike! This is what I want to go for with my bike whenever I can ditch the suspension fork.

    Revel 2

    I have posted before but it has been 3 years since I have ridden. The itch to really get back out and ride again has come back, so I got my Revel 2 rolling again. I am excited to finally hit some trails.

    This is my 90's something hardrock. I put on the BMX bars and extended the cables. Also I just put on the shimano deore 3 pc. crankset which is an awesome upgrade. I use it for cruising around town and bombing hills.
    I bought it for 30 bucks off craigslist but have dropped 200 into the upgrades; it was worth it though... its a solid bike. Ive put a lot of miles on this thing in the last year

    Poynt,
    What is going on with your fork? does it just need air? Let me know if you sell and if it is a medium, I might be interested.
    Looking for a Medium Scott Scale frame, preferably a 2012 in 26.

    Was able to get out a bit on my new Palomar.

    I switched out to Serfas Drifter tires. It mainly stays on the road around town, but, they did ok on the little hiking trail.

    I need to get rid of these microshift shifters.

    Just found this thread. I like it!
    Here's my Titus RX1, bought new in early 2010. It's my only bike and I ride the shit out of it. Started off as a 3x9, converted to a 1x9 a few years ago. By next weekend, it'll be a 1x11, can't wait!

    My Cannondale Scalpel 26er. 21.4 lbs as shown. Bought used for $1500. Carbon frame. 1x11 speed. Lefty DLR carbon. Sram X01 drive train. XT 11-42 cassette. Tubeless Racing Ralph tires. Chinese carbon handle bar and seatpost.

    The shifting is really crisp. No problem using the XT cassette with Sram shifter and derailleur. Probably will upgrade the wheels to 650b when the current pair worns out.

    Feels fast and nimble when riding the bike. Totally night and day difference compare to my previous aluminum 27lbs full suspension. Couldn't believe saving 6 lbs make such a huge improvement.

    Swapped on some off road tread today in preparation for mountain logging roads in the area.

    It had 1.25" slicks on that were dicey at best for off road use.

    Set up singlespeed with Salsa Cromoto fork. It rides really well on the right trails.
    I just picked up a '97 Rockhopper Comp to convert to a SS and couldn't be happier. I couldn't find a Salsa 26" fork, so I had to get a Kona P2. I'll be running Canti's front and rear though. Hard to tell from the pic, but you're using a tensioner?

    GORGEOUS BIKE!

    Thank you! I love the bike. Rides very well and relatively smoothly. It has a DMR STS tensioner with 34-18 gearing. I did have to grind out a bit of the tensioner to give a little more tension with that ratio, but I might try a 35t ring or 19t cog at some point. I got lucky on the Salsa fork. Not a lot of options... Be sure to post your bike!

    It is currently 34:18. Only 34 up front because the cranks are 110BCD and that was the only size SS chain ring I had that would work with them. I also picked up a 16t & 17t cog, once I get it on the trails I'll decide which works best for me and adjust. I know it sounds dumb but I really built this bike for a specific set of trails that I ride a lot, and my SC 5010 is just too much bike for. Not a ton of climbing, not rough at all, so a rigid SS works well there. I may be able to get to 34:16 after a few rides to get my SS legs back. I also would like to possibly get an ENO Eccentric rear hub at some point once I figure out the gearing and have to invest in a nice WI freewheel.

    Of course I also haven't started messing around to see if I can find a magic link combo yet either...too hot in my garage right now in Phoenix!

    That's exactly why I built a rigid single speed, as well. It makes the boring trails much more exciting! Especially with 26" wheels.

    Here's another single speed 26er that is so much fun on the right trails!

    I've got an old mid-'90s Trek that I've set up SS. It has semi-horizontal dropouts so no tensioner is required. I'm running a 32/20 set up; too many punchy climbs on my local trails. It's a blast to ride.

    [sarcasm] terrible ride yesterday, couldn't get over any pebble in the path due to its outdated small wheels. Ended up just hiking[/sarcasm]

    J/k, great ride, fun bike, even though it's old enough to drink legally.

    My 2008 Cannondale Rush, just before getting started on a 1x11 update.

    Ran this bike as a 3x9 for years, then switched to 2x9 for a while and have been riding it as a 1x9 for a few months now.

    Have contemplated getting a new bike quite a few times, but I enjoy riding this one so I'll probably stick with it for quite awhile still.

    Will post post-update pics soonish.

    2000 Jekyll 3000SL. Flow EX wheelset tubeless, XT drivetrain/brakes...in this pic it's a 2x10, have since switched to newer XT8000 1x11. About 27lbs as it sits. Bike was a yard sale buy, a gift from my wife. Rode it for about 4 years. It's a 19" (L), and I am only 5'6". So I finally scraped enough money to get a smaller frame. A 2013 SB66 Alloy in a small, came with a KS Lev dropper and new CC DbAirCS shock. Going to transfer everything except fork and headset over to new frame. Also need a different front hub. Loved the Jekyll. Hated the Cannondale shock setup.

    I have finally built back up my 2006 Giant STP, I bought this frame new and it has been gathering dust for quite a few years.

    I am stocked to get it built again to take to the skate park with my son on his scooter!

    Spec:

    • 2006 Giant STP frame
    • Rock Shox Argyle forks with extra firm spring
    • Mavic 325 disk rims on hope hubs and Halo twin rail tyres
    • Shimano hone cranks
    • single speed conversion using a Shimano 105 road mech
    • Avid juicy 5 front brake & Juicy 7 rear brake

    1997 Bontrager Privateer Comp

    This is probably one of the best threads. Whenever I come on here I get to see pictures of the best wheel size. Here are some pictures of my Bontrager Privateer Comp from 1997:

    First one is out on my local trails and the next is on a bike tour near Lassen Volcanic. My other 26er is a 26 frame with 275 wheels and 48mm slicks, a 1983 Specialized Stumpjumper Sport:

    Hmmm. Thought this might be the best thread to ask this in. But has anyone put sram eagle on a 26? Just curious

    I have seen it done, but I haven't personally done it. A few guys here are still on mavericks and they do a little bit better as a 1 by. Sweet Privateer man, is that really a 77?
    Looking for a Medium Scott Scale frame, preferably a 2012 in 26.

    That picture looks very like Scotland, except the hill in the background is too flat.

    Scotland is great, I must admit. The trick is finding ways to get a bike out into the wilds. That picture is actually in a trail centre near Perth, the trails are very rugged and natural though. Once you go properly off the beaten track it's harder to find continuous ridable paths to where you want to go. Going for miles then ending up in a bog is not funny!

    It's not fun, it's just a pain in the butt. Especially when the choice is going back the way you came or dragging the bike across a bog or through dense trees, or both at the same time! I'm very reluctant to leave the house without a clear plan.

    Sorry bridgestone14, I meant to say a '97. I don't even know if bontrager was around back then. I at least know they weren't making mountain bikes back then. Thanks for catching that.

    I use a bar end shifter. I didn't have all gears available with the 9 speed freewheel so I just replace it with an 11-34 tooth 8-speed. I'd like to upgrade to a dunno Hub up front and an 11 speed in the rear sometime in the near future.

    My Apollo Taos C, I don't see much about this bike on the net.

    Upgraded the fork to Marvel Comp 120mm because the bike came with a Dart2, also made it 1x9. The juicy 3 brakes have been replaced since the pic was taken, even cheap deore brakes are 10,000 times better!
    It feels nice and light now.

    Mind you I rode my daughters Liv Tempt 4 yesterday, heavier with lower end spec and 27.5" wheels compared to my bike but I still think it was faster, just steadier and rolled over stuff easier, except bb is lower so more pedal strikes. So maybe I don't mind the idea of 27.5" wheels as much these days, but this is my baby....

    I love how all these awesome bikes are not able to roll anymore since 27.5/29rs came on the scene. Crazy how that works. The 26rs wheels all just seized up and no longer roll.

    Right, thats what the newbies would like to think....ha ha. old school only here!!!!

    "new" C'dale M900 frame 96'

    I just auctioned this incredible, silly colored frame on eBay. Probably m500 or M900 from 1996. I don't know what to do with the crazy golden color. In this form, I would not push the bike either among the horses to the carousel...

    Until the frame arrives, I will examine the serial number. I hope it will be M900, yellow would be the easiest to overpaint the frame.
    Happy me - now I have the frame with rigid P-Bone and head fork tube 1/1,8'' !

    "new" C'dale M900 frame 96'

    Plan is to use Shimano SLX 2x10 groupset, Avid 2.0 Digit brakes, Mavic Crossroc UST wheels and some Ritchey WCS carbon parts (seatpost, handlebars...) to built fresh, reliable and light commuter. (town + easy tracks).
    Looking for some fast Ritchey WCS tubeless tyres. Saddle must be F'izi:k Tundra 2, my butt has its own head ...

    That gold C-dale might be kinda cool if you masked off some logos on the downtube and resprayed it leaving the gold as a sort of reverse decal.

    Yes, 26'' is ornamental now.

    Yesterday I made the mistake of taking my display bike outside. It was going ok until I found myself speeding towards a root on the trail. I could've died!! Thankfully my brakes are good, they are specified as 27.5 compatible, which saved me from death or horrible injury I have no doubt.

    Once I'd walked my bike back to the car I cried until I composed myself enough to drive home. I may take up carpet bowls.

    Just put black cannondale and "model numbers" on the gold. Looks to be a good paint job on it...The red pops with the gold too! classic anodized bling for a classic awesome bike!

    Itís gone, soon, Iím debating whether or not I treat myself to a new dedicated off road bike next year. If I do, this becomes an around town bike.

    I like seeing a bike, any bike being used. Even if it has a kickstand, and reflectors. What I can't stand is a nice bike with a rusty chain and dust on the saddle.

    For a stealth option I use a 6 inch strip of red reflector tape on my red bikes seat post down tube so drivers behind get a warning Im out and about.

    Your silver bike would suit the grey silver reflector tape they sell , stuff works uber well.

    I use lights when i know I'll be riding in the dark but often I'm out with only that reflector strip on my bike when Im booking it home late.

    I put this one together before summer started, bit and pieces from other bikes, the way it rides is simply incredible, it's not going away any time soon, hopefully this winter I can give her 2.4 tires and a 10 speed vs 9 speed
    It is so go to ride that I will be keeping for a long time.

    Yesterday I set a new best time (for me) on a main segment on my local trail on my 650b FS bike... so today I went and beat it on my 26er HT. Boo Yah!

    If you ever want to switch to disc, its easy on these. Take off left drop out, jig it up, and cut it out of iirc 1/4in alu plate.

    I like it a lot when I'm riding hard. Right now I'm rebuilding a fitness base so I'm not using it as much, but when I was riding a lot I used it a lot. There are more options for 27.2 out now too (if that's what you have).

    I have flashing LEDs, reflective tape is a great idea!! I used to be a motorcycle tech, so I have some red reflective wheel stripe left over, thanks for the idea!!

    2008 Jamis Dakar XC. Paid $499 back in 2010 for the bike. I have installed hydraulic brakes and switched the 3x8 to a 1x9 drivetrain using Shimano Deore parts. Will be replacing the bent seat post soon with a dropper

    Mongoose Rockadile 26+

    Post your 26er Pics-img_9800.jpg
    Hello, new to the mtbr forum.

    Here is my 1994 Mongoose Rockadile; 2nd owner; mine since 1995. Bike has gone through a number of iterations. Original build was unsuspended, flatbar (with purple anodized bullhorns!). Added Rock Shock Indy C fork a couple years later. Dropbar setup was done about 6 years ago. Most recently rolling on 26" x 2.1" Duro Rocky Wolf gumwalls. Wanted to fatten the goose a bit, so now sporting 26" x 2.8" WTB Ranger tires. Just installed the tires yesterday, rode them on the trail today; they feel great. My son rolls a 29er on his high school MTB team, but I've not yet strayed from my 26'er. Thanks.

    It has been pretty good. I broke the frame (chainstay) this season. My 5 year manufacturers warranty had expired so I had to drop some $$$ for a new rear triangle.

    DMVJeep, was it the drive side chainstay and close to dropout where the crack happened?

    That was exactly where it happened! I have a friend who broke his chainstay as well on a 08 Jamis, but I believe his was non-drive side. I tried to reason with Jamis since it seemed like it is a common flaw, but they wouldnít budge since I had the bike for seven years. I highly doubt I will buy another Jamis FWIW.

    Thanks, I also have a 1999 Homegrown Factory XTR BB red with the 90 MM White Brothers shock, and a 1996 HG but I am not able to upload any more pictures. I know some sites require so many posts in order post more pics. Maybe I can upload when I get more posts? I love your bike collection as well.

    I think you're on the Homegrown Facebook group?

    Where are you finding the White Bros forks? I'd like to find one at some point for one of my bikes.

    Thank you. I've got a 1994 S-Works M2 that I've bought since then. Should have all the parts to put it together in the next couple weeks. Should be a fun ride.

    2012 SC Heckler

    '12 SC Heckler...XL frame. Been an awesome reliable and fun bike. Since new have done 3 trannys and 2 wheelsets but frame has been 'clyde worthy' (6'4" / 220lbs).

    I just picked up a '18 Kona Process 153 AL/DL (27.5) but will still ride the Heckler from time to time...I have all parts to convert to 1X9 (winter project).

    New Year's Eve ride along the Truckee River (outside Tahoe City, CA). Dry winter so far, there should be more snow this time of year. Still, a beautiful setting to ride.

    2014 Pivot Firebird XX1. Love this bike. After all the discussions about 26er, 27.5er and 29er, Iíve had no problems staying right behind all the new bigger wheel bikes. It climbs right over and down the rocks. Tons-O-Fun.

    I've always liked fitting the nicer modern kit on an old good frame better than trying to stay 100% period correct. Better yet, when "timeless" parts are used that haven't changed much for a decade or more of production.

    Dude, sweet looking ride. The best part is you can use the front der routing to hook up a dropper post. Solid work with the brake adapter too, where did you get that?

    I have seen them on ebay, just didn't think you could still get them also I always thought you had to run 180mm rotor when you use one. Looks like he isn't which is good to know.

    I think you can still buy bushings for the NRS?

    I didn't know you got them with bearings. My friend has two NRS bikes and both have bushings.

    Latest editions to my ever growing fleet of 26ers.

    First is the aforementioned 1994 Specialized S-Works M2. It's almost all XT, with exception of Thomson post and stem, and a Scott Black Magic bar. I can't wait to get this out on the local trails for some lightweight old school hardtail fun!




    Then I picked up this 1996 Schwinn Moab on eBay as a frame set for 99Ę. No one else bid on it, so a snagged it. The frame was NOS, and in really great condition. It's a little small for me at a 15". I had picked up the White Bros fork on eBay and then wasn't sure where to go with the build. With lots of scouring of eBay, and an idea I'd seen others do with smaller frames, I built it up as a sort of BMX bike. It's setup as a single speed. With the help of an adapter even has disc brakes front and rear. My plan is to play with it mostly in urban settings and maybe take it to the Railyard in Rogers, Arkansas a couple times.
