    It now has a shorter stem, flat pedals and it's getting a new Derby wheelset. I'll post a new picture soon. This one is a little old.

    Yup. Different saddle now. That Turbo broke me the one time I rode it.

    Ok, this is starting to look like a vintage thread. It's time for something new. 26" x 40mm Derby rims with Hadley hubs, DT Swiss Revolution spokes and Sapim Polyax 14mm nips, so they stick out nice and far when the weather gets cold. I'm waiting for a pair of American Classic valves. Build weight is 1690 grams.

    I have a 2008 Bauer Bravo
    Stock they don't have a much on them, but I have updated the drivetrain to a mix of xt/slx/deore, added formula brakes, EA70 bars, EA90 stem and a WTB saddle. All I want to do is get some Rockshox XC30 forks then it will be complete.

    Down the track I want to get into some touring/bikepacking so it will end up with some transient panniers too

    2010~11(?) GT Distortion. Found it on ebay and bought it from a gentleman in Huntington Beach area. It's a factory prototype or something. Production models have cable/hose guides under the top tube (mine has none), and external cup on the bottom headset (mine is internal)

    2012 Santa Cruz Jackal. Bought the frame for $350 during SC's year-end clearance sale.

    Car Bone, that Chromag is an awesome ride, love the look of the chunky tires with the fenders. How you find the bars ride in that position? Have you ever thought of running them higher on the steerer with an angled stem for a bit more of an upright riding posture?

    Yeah i was actually running it with all those gold spacers under the stem for over a year. Then I read some stuff about cx-fitting over at rbr and one guy supposedly went to a really good fitter and they actually lowered the bar for him to make it more comfortable. So yesterday I tried it too, and to my surprise its more comfortable now, go figure.. I lowered the bar about 50-60mm and also the saddle about 8-10mm but nothing else. As you can see I mostly ride the in the drops. never the hoods as roadies do. but sometimes I put my hands just next to the stem like a hipser with a fixie, and its comfortable too.

    I'm gonna buy a nitto dirt drop for it and then run cane creek time trial levers and some kind of little dummy lever (but its not an actual lever its just a little knob to limit hands slipping forward while on the hoods).

    Its my "monster road" commuter. http://forums.mtbr.com/commuting/my-...er-878749.html

    Good ole 08 Giant Boulder SE. Back in college I went to my LBS and asked for the cheapest bike they had. It was around $350 and I thought that was pretty expensive. But growing up on Walmart bikes it felt like a super nice ride. Now my brother got me into mtb so I've just started to take it on actual trails and it seems to do fine. I've just got to keep fighting the urge to get a nicer bike.

    Titus

    2006 Titus MotoLite that I resurrected. I just bought a used 2013 Fox Talas (hard to find 1 1/8 steer with 15mm dropout) recently and upgraded my aging shimano LX 9 speed drivetrain to a more modern 1/10 with a OneUp 42 and a RaceFace crankset (30t). I'm running a hand built White Industries wheel set, they have been bomb proof! Thomson post, Renthal bar and stem, XT disc brakes, specialized tubless purgatory front ground control rear, specialized saddle. Very nice riding bike, I also have an older 1996 Norco team issue hard tail when I feel the itch to ride oldschool.

All I have to do is cut the seatpost and it's getting a Spinergy Enduro wheelset from another bike of mine.

    Ahhh, the beautiful Ibis HD, in her natural habitat. She downhills, she cross country races, and she shreds the rocky, sassy single track of Arizona, Utah, and Colorado...God I love this bike.

    Been wanting to join here for a while, may as well do it now.

    Here is my new bike (about 3 month old), a Saracen 2013 Ariel 14X (without the crap stock spec). Got a considerably better spec over that of the new 650b frame, for less money.

    Post your 26er Pics-saracenr.jpg


    And my still living Carrera that has been through hell and back since 2011. Parts have been replaced as they break and funny enough, the drive-train is still going strong with only the cables needing yearly replacement. I think I have clocked in 10,000+ miles on this bike, given that I have been riding it every week since I bought it and I recorded a month on Stava with it and covered 500 miles in that one month.

    My Bikes:

    2002 Enduro pro, Purchased brand new from Super Go in Santa Monica on July 4th Weekend 2002. Changed the Stem to an Azonic 45 degree shorty riser. Replaced the Specialized Strong Arm II Cranks with Race Face, When the Psylo's could no longer be rebuilt I installed some Revelations, and added risers for the Disk Brakes to fit some larger disks in there. The FSR Shock Mount bracket broke last year and I developed a small crack where the seat post is, could not find my reciepts and without that Specialized was no help, so she is retired until I can get fixed.

    The first trip to Big Bear (before Snow Summit closed down the on-property runs Circa 2002):


    One of my last rides before she was retired:



    I ended up going for a bigger frame and bike when I replaced the Enduro, a 2006 Kona Coiler. I have been riding this bike for just over a year now:


    Years ago a friend gave me his old Rock Hopper Rigid and I tossed some street tires on it to use for Beach Cruising and short road rides with the wife:


    A year ago I purchased my first true Downhill Bike, a 2006 Specialized Bit Hit. Rode it two days at Snow Summit last year, taking it to Mammoth this summer:


    well, the front wheel is 26, the rear is 24.....!!!!!

    2012 Fuji Tahoe 4.0

    Here's my new 2012 Fuji Tahoe 4. It's a new old stock purchase; I work for a private college that has a pro deal with Fuji for our outdoor program, so got this for less than half original price. Figured I couldn't pass it up! Getting back into mountain biking after a 10 year hiatus. I love 26er. My LBS tries to tell me 26 has been dead since 2007-08. That sounds crazy to me, but whatever. Going to enjoy this one for a while.

    I've converted it to a 1X10 using a RaceFace NW 32T ring, switched to a 60mm RaceFace Ride stem and Titec Flat tracker carbon bar, and Eggbeater pedals.

    I got lucky and found the original in my own computer. I don't even know how I got it since the computer is not very old. I originally posted this on MTBR. Later Dirt Rag published it. I go back to MTBR since some time in the mid-nineties.

    "A World Trade Center Survivors Tale"


    I work(ed) on the 68th floor of One World Trade Center. Thats the North Tower. The first one hit, the last to fall. Guess thats something to be proud of in its own perverse way.

    Me, Im a creature of habit. For 15 years Ive gone for coffee at 9:30 am. Never missed my coffee never varied my time. Makes me seem pretty anal when you think about it.

    Besides being anal, I hate meetings. I hate meetings almost as much as I love coffee. On September 11, I had a meeting scheduled for 9 am with a woman who likes to talk. (Really likes to talk!) I figured there was no way Id get coffee by the time she finished so I went for coffee at 8:30 am. Never did that before, havent done it since.

    Down the elevator, out to the street. Not only do I have coffee at 9:30 everyday, I always buy my coffee from Ali the Afghan on Church Street. (Ali came to New York to avoid the war in Afghanistan.) No reason to change that on the 11th.

    I got my coffee and headed back to my office. I spot a dime. Did I mention that I always pick up coins? I do. Im cheap and anal. I heard a noise and looked up. An American Airlines 767 was in trouble. Wow, it was going to be close to my building. Holy Shit! It hit my building.

    I was working in Public Affairs for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey that day. My comment was recorded by a tourists camcorder. Holy Shit! has been repeated worldwide many times since September 11. It was not the first official statement by a Port Authority employee but it was the most accurate.

    I ran. I told others to run. Survivors run, victims stare. I did not spill my coffee.

    I reached a pay phone, drank my coffee, and called my mother collect so she could tell everyone I was all right. My wifes phone number was in my office. I was not going back to my office to get it.

    My mother answered the phone. She would not accept the charges. Thanks mom.

    I called again and this time I got through.

    What could I do? I took the train home. After I walked from the station to my wifes office. (My car keys were in my office that had ceased to exist by then) She drove me to my car and lent me her spare set of keys. Me, I made one stop. I stopped at my local bike shop and made sure they did not cancel the order I had for new tires.

    I eventually got my new tires. I hope Ali still has his coffee stand somewhere in New York City.

    Talked her way out of it .....

    Our offices were below the impact so everyone walked down many flights of stairs and got out. The woman was still around when I retired in 2011.

    Rev B. Great story and you were extremely lucky that day. I'm sure you've heard this before, but I'm going to put it out there again anyway. You should have bought a lottery ticket that day.

    Did you really stop at the bike shop to make sure they didn't cancel a tire order?

    Yes I did. Priorities and I wanted those tires. I think they were Kenda Nevegals.

    I went back to work at a new location in Jersey City on the 13th. We had quite a mess to clean up since I worked for the Port Authority of NY&NJ.

    Cool. Thank you. After I posted it I realised it was dark myself. I posted some 'first impressions' of the bike in another thread and posted a lighter picture there: LINK

    If you are talking about the green thing then yeah, it's growing on me. It's very plain and purposeful. My first thought was 'If Tonka designed a bike it would look like this'. I also like the fact that it's a bit different.

    That picture was taken right at the top of the hill at Glentress and the last section, the Spooky Wood climb, is a mare. I've always made it though but yesterday I had to stop at a couple of bits as I'm so out of shape.

    How do these ten-year-old bikes look so fresh? :0. Mine end up all chipped and scratched and I don't abuse them, it just happens.

    I like that colour. I had a car that colour and I never got tired of it.

    I must admit I prefer it when the rear triangle is the same colour as the rest of the bike, I just think it looks more coherent.

    Yeah, the polished rear end really stands out now that everyone's riding matte black rigs, but I still love this girl. She's getting ridden tomorrow.

    My frame is anodized. Truth is mine hasn't been ridden enough. Both of my kids (8 and 4) are now riding two wheels so my fresh look is about to get beat.......

    Been riding an old (but swell) Fisher hardtail for the last several years, figured it was about time to step it up a little, just got this Giant Reign and am looking forward to finding my way around a FS, disc brakes, and long travel.

    I set up these new Derby tubless with some new Fire XC Pro 2.1s. But for some reason they just pop off the rims anywhere from 25 to 35psi. So, I tore them apart and installed some WTB Mutano race 2.4s. So far so good at 25 psi. All I have to do is switch the cassette from my other wheel and make sure the rear derailer is adjuster properly.

    "HOLY EXPOSED SEATPOSTS BATMAN"
    Curious how tall you are and what size frame? That's a lot of exposed seatpost on both of those bikes.

    BTW nice bikes.

    Well, the white one is 17.5" which could be something like a Medium in Specialized sizes, somehow I'm in between Medium and Large (I'm 1.8 meters tall) and I tried the L Specialized enduro and it felt really comfortable, specially with the length between the seat post and the handlebar, I feel it more natural when riding and with the white one somehow I feel like if I have to hunch to be riding. Yeah, exposed seatposts but the riding position on my enduro really improved to what I was used to in the white one.

    Thanks!

    So if my math is correct you are slightly shy of 5' 11". Which probably does put you in between a medium and a large. But by looking at the amount of seat post exposed maybe a large would have been a better fit. If you don't mind I'm curious of the measurement of exposed seat post? Measure from top of frame collar to seat camp rails.

    Possibly long legs and a short torso? That would make the med possibly better if ETT is too long, even with a short stem. Although, that would make him all legs...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    It's about 9.5 inches (26 cm) and yes, my two Specialized ones the 650b and the 26er are L size now... I've seen people with Enduros and their posts are quite exposed also.

    It's amazing to me when you skim this thread. All the high quality 26'ers still out in use. Why buy a new clown wheeled bike when you can ride a high quality fun ride for years and years. Such as what's displayed here in front of us. It cracks me up how many people that buy into the new hype every year. Money wasted every year that could have been spent elsewhere. Such as a mtb vacation or family matters.

    Well, to be fair, a lot of people buy a larger wheeled bike as their first real MTB. Or, they are replacing something that needs to be replaced. It's their money and they have the choice as to what size wheels to buy. It's good that we have choices.

    Sometimes, when I spend too much time reading about bikes on the internet and not, you know, actually riding bikes, I get to feeling like my bike is old-fashioned.

    I mean, it's got a heavy coil fork.


    It's got a 3x9 drivetrain (ewww!).


    It's got these tiny little wheels.


    But I have managed to strap a few modern parts on her.




    I'm not a "26 or die" person, but man oh man does this bike put a big smile on my face each and every time.

    Nickel 150/140 with Alfine8 internal gear hub.

    I'd be down with 27.5, but all the bikes have thru axle dropouts now. Internal gear hubs have a non-removeable axle. I'd rather have no derailleur than 27.5. Plus, the Nickel is a joy to ride.

    I LOVE 26" wheels, be it for trail riding, commuting, or just cruising the mean streets of North Dakota. Here's my 2013 Cannondale Trail with 2.1 Kenda's on it. It's plush, but nimble.

    This was my 1995 Specialized Hard Rock that I sold last fall. Was a great bike with a few updates to keep it fresh, now being used as a SS by a fellow MTBRer who bought it from me.

    Its really obvious how exposed an RD would be on a bike with a swingarm like that.

    you said:

    then you need to finish the build yourself. No wheels bought from a store or mass produced will be good enough. You simply need to go over it yourself.

    I trust the builder at universal far more then I trust myself.

    I plan on playing with lacing and spoke tension on my old wheel set. But for now I have no experience with building or truing.

    Looked at your artful arrangement of bike parts in the livingroom and took a wild guess ;0)

    If you had a wife the yell of 'No you f****** are NOT!' would be audible in Japan.

    Depends on the spouse. So far mine has been more or less fine with me keeping three bikes in the kitchen, rebuilding forks on the dining room table, washing muddy bikes in the shower, and cleaning greasy cassettes in the bathroom sink. Assuming I clean up after myself.

    Luckily for our continued sanity we moved out of that tiny apartment and bought a house, so no more of that.

    Haha, only once. Kept riding until it was too far below freezing to use the outside taps, wanted to wash it before I put it away for the winter. I wouldn't recommend doing that on a regular basis for a variety of reasons.

    Just before swap of the rigid for the sus and mid ride. A co-worker asked me recently when I might consider selling, how about...never.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Finished the build today.....now if the weather starts cooperating I might actually be able to go ride it soon!

    Though I still do need to pick up some Stan's sealant and find a compressor to get the tire bead to seat correctly.

    Here's mine old Schwinn Moab. 1997, I think. I have since upgraded much and it is currently an SS convert, but I still slap the gears on for winter, every once-in-a-while.

    I'll play.

    Custom little Wraith play bike by my buddy Daren in N. Conway NH. Sub-15" chainstays but will fit a 2.4" tire, EBB, super tight. Gets changed up into all sorts of fun incarnations. So wrong it's right.







    08ish Sinister Shenanigan. 165/170 rig. (Basically a Devinci Hectik.) Fun bike; used it as my main bike for a pretty long stretch and it's a solid all-arounder that can easily take a lot more than I could ever throw at it.





    05/06 Sinister DNA. Frank the Welder built DJ/park bike. I can't begin to do this bike justice.





    6" Wraith Sofaking custom w/a scavenger build. Single pivot, idler, floating brake, my current favorite. If you can't have a good time on this bike, you have no soul.






    Way old pic, but this frame is still around as a pumptrack/DJ build. Aztech Flying Polack, basically a steel P-bike with horizontal drops and a derailleur hanger. Something another friend built. Ran it as a trail bike for a season and it held it's own. Damn near indestructible; another keeper.




    I still have this frame around and plan to revive it for my son (he's about ready to move up from 24" on mtbs). Another Frank the Welder creation, (along with Mickey from Spooky). Usually ran it with an air adustable platform air shock and set up as a trail bike. That turnbuckle gizmo along with a couple different shock mount positions, and a little fiddling, you can run it as a ~110-140 travel and adjust the angles infinitely between high and tight to wicked slack. The most 'tweakable' bike I've ever owned or probably come across.




    Still got this 95 DB Axis, Logic 853 tubes, Breezer drops, 1 of 500. about as close as you can get to a real Ritchey. Still got the Spin wheels and all. Could never bring myself to ditch it.




    Not mine in the pic, but I have one of these running too. Same color and similar build. 06 Turner DHR



    Besides those, the wife has a 06 Enduro, the kid inherited a sick 09 or '10 carbon Mojo SL complete from my father (who went to the dark side and built himself a Niner for his 70th b'day), usually have a few random loaners/giveaways looking to be re-homed, even got one of these collecting dust in the shed - 87 Bridgestone.

    It always amazed me how similar Ventanas were to Turners back in the day. Basically the same frames. This DH version a bit tweaked and a little different than Turner. But their other models were almost identical.

    Abe nice ride by the way.

    Thanks Dirtjunkie! Even though its design is now sorta old school I enjoy riding it and feel really comfortable in it. They only thing that felt a little bit off at first was the wee bit extra height on the bb, but I got used to it pretty quickly. Here is a recent video of me having some fun with "LA BRUJA"!

    Here is my 2011 5-Spot. Still a great bike. I have extensively ridden 27.5" bikes recently and can say, there is not much difference - so the 5-Spot stays.

    2012 trek fuel. She's got several years left in her before I break down and replace her with a remedy. Everything but the frame new within the past 6 months, lots of miles but still a lot left.

    Some awesome rigs in here! Mine's nothing like some of these, but it can still outride me.

    I didn't know Specialized had a lifetime warranty on frames until I went in to a shop and talked to a friend of mine. Had a early 90s RockHopper A1fs that cracked the head tube. Luckily it was before they discontinued 26" RH frames...asked for black but they only had the "Pro" colors left which were not on the US web site. Had to immediately buy disc wheels and brakes plus a new BB just to get rideable. Slowly upgraded the rest since then.
    So my "free" frame ended up costing about as much as a new RH would have but at least it has better parts, and was ground-up built in my shop. Everything new (found on deals) but the fork.
    Fox F100RLC 32 (ebay, repainted and rebuilt here)
    SLX trigger shifters
    XT rear and cassette
    X7 front
    Roval wheels
    Panaracer Soars
    Tektro Dracos
    EA50 bars, stem, seatpost (newer, transferred from old frame)
    Wellgo M138
    Need a new crankset and saddle and it'll be good for a while.

    Thanks. Reasons I want to change them: I'd like to shed some weight (they're old square taper Aceras) and more importantly with my 29" inseam I'd like to shorten to a 170. But i don't want those things badly enough to spend the money on them...yet.

    BlueSky has SLX sets for $109 which is tempting...maybe we'll see what's out there next spring. I like to do a little something each year. Or if I ride enough maybe I'll pull the trigger on a full suspension frame or complete instead. Time will tell.

    Just picked up this frame to do a budget FS build for my son. Moving over most of the parts over from his old bike (it was a xsmall frame, so moving him up to a small). I am trying to nurse the old SID Race shock along. The negative chamber was leaking badly but after disassembling it and lubing everything it is holding air now. We will see how it holds up to its first ride before I try to find some new o-rings that fit.

    I'd certainly have been stoked if I had a bike like that when I started riding! Shame the medium 5spot was a bit big for her, but this should be a great starting point.

    2001 Raleigh M60 My First MTB

    Had this bike since 2001. Cleaned it up after a year of sitting. Still in great shape and a lot of fun memories.

    Finally got a good picture of my 91 Trek 950, almost entirely stock. WTB rocket V saddle, wellago flats and Salsa QRs. Besides obvious wear items, the rest is still as the day I bought it 24 years ago although I think I'm going to change out the stem and bars to something a little wider and more modern. Still ride the bike once a week during summer and fall. After I get the cockpit a little refreshed I'm thinking some wheels built to fit a 10speed cassette and then going 2x10.

    Trek Slash 7 2013 - My daily ride! I do about 25km a day just commuting, then hit the hills at the weekend when I can. I must have done ~4k km on the bike so far overall.

    Upgrades from stock:

    - Shimano Zee brakes (original Avid Elixir 5 were awesome when the worked...)
    - Rockshox Reverb Stealth seatpost
    - Hope SS GXP bottom bracket (original lasted ~ 10 months)
    - 1x10 setup from Oneup Components. 30t n/w at the front, and 11-42 cassette. KMC chain.
    - Bontrager Montrose Comp saddle
    - Shimano Saint pedals

    Summer spec tires: Bontrager XR3 team issue front, Bontrager XR2 team issue rear (both tubeless)
    Winter/DH/bike park tires: Maxxis HRII

    Been thinking of putting on some wider 800mm bars, and have been toying with the idea of a Pike or Talas (Dual position) for a while to help on the commute, but I'd have to invest in 2 new wheels sets (I have 20mm axle) so always put it on hold.

    Overall, I *love* this bike - my road bike and backup 650b HT get ridden, but this bike is the one I can never wait to ride.

    My single speed commuter, built around a On-One Inbred.

    Tires are tubeless Schwalbe Kojak 2.0. 32/12 ratio on the gear. My first build and I'm very happy with the result!

    Nothing fancy, but it's been a good bike and it's seen a lot of (ab)use. Really, the only upgrades I've done to it are the pedals, grips and tires.

    Fantastic! How nice does that lugged True Temper frame ride? Have the same frame on my 1991 970 and pretty much all stock except for the bars. Couldn't handle 20.5" wide bars. Had to add a few inches. Good to see another lugged singletrack being loved. They built those bikes right.
    Get out of the gutter and onto the mountain top.
