    Now with 2 degree angle set and 29 inch fork! Still with 27.5 inch front wheel but will try mullet at some point. Head angle is around 65 degrees now, so no need to be afraid on the steeps any more..

    For sitting climbing the chainstay could be longer and seattube steeper. But then again it is a really playful bike to be ridden standing to get the best out of it! The All Mountain Hardtail Thread. Post up yours.-20190507_104735.jpg

    65* and slacker on a hardtail feels so right.

    She turned out great I think. A few rides in and I'm still nowhere near the bike's limit.

    Some numbers

    475mm reach
    445mm chainstay length
    63 HTA
    78 STA
    -50 BB drop
    clearance to run 29x3.0 tires at the rear

    I was hoping to replace my xc bike with this and was worried that it would be too much of a barge on flat and tight trails. It wasn't. Despite the slack head angle and 1280mm wheelbase it felt very maneuverable and balanced. Manuals and bunny hops were no problem at all too.

    Stache mixed wheel size

    The All Mountain Hardtail Thread. Post up yours.-img_4202.jpg
    The All Mountain Hardtail Thread. Post up yours.-img_4198.jpg

    Trek Stache 5 with Pike Charger 2 RC 29+ 120mm (still need to cut the forks steerer).

    Currently running mixed wheel sizes out of curiosity.
    Front: Vittoria Barzo 29x2.6" on stock i46 (Duroc 50) rim so far; tire still round and no cornering issues (measures 63mm at at shoulder knobs and 67mm at the side wall while being rated as ETRTO 65-622)
    Rear: Schwalbe Rocket Ron 27.5x3" on i40 rim

    I really like this setup over the stock 29x3" f/r. More precision when steering and faster to accelerate. Head angle became slacker and I did notice climbing performance decreasing. Where I ride its mostly flat and when it gets steep occassionaly the bike is still rideable but requires me to get into a more forward position. I trade in climbing perf. over faster accelaration and more trail feedback. For my riding the stock config just made the trails I ride appear too muted and boring.
    27+ in the rear saves my spline and the Barzo up front is also quite comfortable given that is has considerably less height and volume.

    You should also post this up in the "97.5 All Mountain" thread, people there might like to see it...

    Here's mine, Norco Torrent with a 29x3.0/27.5x3.0 combo. Bike just rips, I don't have any trouble climbing with it either.

    what are the specs on this? i think i like the st and ht angles. i'm not trying to rip on you because it is a beautiful bike, just curious. why didn't you go for sliders? they're not just for ss.

    Bought recently as a new/ unused frame and built up. Such a fun bike to ride, even more fun when you stick the nose down a hill or drop-off. The long travel fork soaks up everything... not a lot of fun going back uphill though.

    How long is that fork? It looks like the BB is level with the hubs.
    SS 29er
    SS 29+

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Fork is 160mm long. But I have a travel limiter from Cannondale inbound. Going to to down to 140mm.

    Oh, good, the headtube is much more likely to stay attached to the frame then.

    Two of them are mine-my posts aren't showing up on my phone, so I unintentionally duplicated them. In any event, you can see the progression from week-to-week with new tires, deleted rim stickers, etc.

    2011 Cotic BFe and a question.....

    I just finished bingeing this entire thread. Took me about 2 weeks.
    I bought the Cotic 2 weeks ago (thus the binge) for $400. It was built up with all the parts that are now on the green bike. I upgraded darn near everything to new and better. I kept the SLX crankarms, bb, stem, and
    Project Sixpack bars.

    Chris King headset
    Rockshox Sektor DPC 150mm (new)
    XTR brakes (180mm) and shifter (new)
    XT wheelset (used)
    Kendra Nevegal X Pro 26Ē (new)
    Saint pedals (my parts bin)
    Sunrace 11-40 10 speed (new)
    32 tooth narrow wide chainring (new)
    Magura Vyron 150mm dropper post (used)

    I have only done 2 commuting rides so far.

    My question is on the green bike. I bought it for $50 at the co-op. No branding on it due to the paint job. It is too big for me. I knew that, I just needed a frame for all the stuff removed from the Cotic. I am trying to sell it. Does anyone have any ideas as to the brand/model? Or is it just a cheapo, department store aluminum frame?





    Thanks.

    Itís been great so far , I just added cushcore canít wait to test it out on that... only thing I donít like is that Iíve experienced peddle strikes but I think itís more down to the long cranks

    I just got my Kona Explosif rebuilt after powdercoating.
    added a 1.5 degree headset to bring HA to 66 degrees which seems perfect. Bike is perfect to compliment an enduro type rig here in NC, handles the flowy XC trails and is capable enough for the lighter trails in pisgah.

    Turned my Big Honzo into a more all mountain setup. Swapped out the 130mm Recon for a 150mm Yari and added a works -1.5 degree headset. Then swapped out the 2.8 WTB Ranger tires for a 2.8 Minion DHF and DHR II. Then upgraded to the Shimano BR-MT520 4 piston brakes with RT-64 rotors. Looking forward to getting it pointed down the steep stuff here in the PNW. Hoping to save the wear and tear on the full suspension bikes bearings in the mud.

    My favorite bike ever :-)

    here's my new Reeb ReDikyelous. It's an evolution of the Dikyelous that I designed to be my ultimate all around bike. 65 degree head angle. 75 degree seat angle 16.1 chainstays (those are as short as my old 26 inch trials bikes had) low stand over, long top tube and 50mm drop BB. What do you think?

    ^ looks pretty dialed! I'd love to ride one of these. I just have too many steel hardtails right now, can't justify another one.

    (BTW I didn't know you were on MTBR, pretty cool. Love all the videos over the years!)

    Jeff - can you show us how the bottom bracket area is put together? Assuming the chainstays are flat plates for a few inches...

    This seems like a better question for the people that work full time in house for the company and have access to bare frames, not the brand ambassador.

    She turned out great I think. A few rides in and I'm still nowhere near the bike's limit.

    Some numbers

    475mm reach
    445mm chainstay length
    63 HTA
    78 STA
    -50 BB drop
    clearance to run 29x3.0 tires at the rear

    I was hoping to replace my xc bike with this and was worried that it would be too much of a barge on flat and tight trails. It wasn't. Despite the slack head angle and 1280mm wheelbase it felt very maneuverable and balanced. Manuals and bunny hops were no problem at all too.
    Who is the manufacturer?

    I never thought I'd be loving my Whyte 905 so much. It has totally changed my opinion of hardtails. Threw on some Ibis 742 logo carbon hoops and it is even better. 28.6lbs with pedals which is not too bad. Figure between it and my Orbea Rallon, I am set!

    Sure, but the guy has the bike and a camera and appears to have the ability to upload photos to MTBR.

    Maybe you can catch a glimpse in this video. I posted the breakdown video showing what it took to climb this in another thread, I watched it about 5-6 times straight, I would love to ride up and down that chunk with those skills, or without, I just wanna ride it! I didn't realize there was an edit!



    Beautiful bike Jeff, I want one!

    From a different website somewhere, it's a CNC piece and it is thinned out. I think the exact ref was someone was asking if the stays were 'flattened tubes' but it's a joined CNC piece.

    "Forged Yoke" would be the more common term if that's what it is? I'd still contact the manufacturer for a clear and timely answer, which he probably could have had by now. just sayin.

    Could be...Here's the quote from Jeff L "The chain stay actually has a machined yoke that allows us to tuck in the tire so tight as opposed to a crimped chain stay"

    I'm planning on ordering a 2020 Moxie frame when they go on presale. I'm excited to have an aggressive hardtail backup bike to pair with my canyon strive. I just need to decide between the pink or the blue. They both look great!

    Pink FTW! Did they change anything with the frame this year? Any chance they dropped the connection height of the seat stays?

    As far as I'm aware the only differences are slightly better rear tire clearance at the chainstays, by reducing max chainring size to 34 iirc, and also a revised top tube to match the new Full Moxie.

    Really love this bike, but I haven't been able to fully test it yet due to the current riding conditions of where I live. So I've been using this;

    It's a 1990's Trek 820 Mountain Track with 27.5" tires, a 120mm fork, and a disk brake conversion.

    It uses a mix of stock parts, Raleigh Tokul 2 parts, and a headset from a Mongoose Dolomite. The disk conversion was done using the Chaser-Tech 145mm(?) adapter.

    There are still a few issues that I need to work out, but it's nearly perfect as a winter beater bike!

    I was tempted to get one, but it would have made the bike's price go outside of the planned budget. A dropper is def a future upgrade though, right along with a 10-50T 9 speed cassette, and an oval chain ring. XD

    Got this puppy all dialed in the other day. Added a PNW 200mm dropper, swapped to 175mm GX cranks (GF needs new cranks on her Dartmoor, stockers are the right size for her, swapped mine to hers and upgraded ), and add 800mm Salsa Rustler bars.

    Yeah, I was waiting for the Solaris Max to come back in stock but with the new Bfe Max itís a difficult decision. Good problem to have I guess.

    Looking good.

    I ordered the same one. Being delivered today. My first brand new mountain bike. Have always bought used to get more value. This deal was too good to pass up.

    Have had a used 2006 and 2008 Stumpjumper in the past. Will see how it compares. I'm sure it will be night and day. Mountain bike tech has changed so much.

    Really nice work. Nice to see someone using graphite instead of digital photo shopped stuff to look hand drawn

    I am having issues uploading the image apparently, not sure if it's the file, or the fact I'm posting from a Chromebook, or what. The first image link was "busted" the second and third just never showed up. But, if you send me a SASE w/$10, I'll draw it for you no problem.

    I guess it's time to throw my Nukeproof Scout 290 in the ring.

    Tips the scale at 29.5 lb at the moment, with 10lb being in wheels/tires. Rims are probably overkill but I found them locally for a good deal and I'm hoping they'll stand up to some constant abuse.

    • 2020 Nukeproof Scout 290 M
    • Rockshox Revelation RC 140mm
    • SLX M7100 2 piston brakes
    • XT 203mm / 180mm rotors
    • XX1 11spd shifter
    • XG-1195 casette
    • GX 11 RD
    • X01 170mm crankset w/ 30t X-Sync II chainring
    • Spank Oozy Trail 395+ w/ Halo supadrive hubs
    • Maxxis DHF 2.5 F/R
    • Brand-X 800mm carbon bars
    • Nukeproof Horizon Stem 35mm
    • OneUp 170mm dropper
    • WTB Rocket saddle


    Let me know what you think! This is my first build. The goal was a 'budget' all around ripper keeping everything under $1500, but I'd love some feedback on the component selection.

    Tomohawk

    So the jakced Stylus turned into a custom Chromag Tomohawk... so fun. The numbers seems a little crazy but it honestly felt natural on ride 1.

    This is the all-mountain hardtail thread, bro.
    We don't know anything your chain.

    Maybe go ask over on the drivetrain forum.

    You probably don't have a rear derailleur with a clutch and it cannot hold enough tension in the chain.

    I was thinking about going 27.5 plus in the back to get a little more small bump compliance. I didn't want to do it because it might look weird. Apparently you like it? yes

    I'm on a Ragley BigWig. It will fit a plus in the back.

    I don't think it looks weird at all, and if you're not paying attention, you really don't even notice it's a mullet bike.&nbsp; I too wanted the extra compliance and so far so good.&nbsp; I'm still experimenting with pressures and have debated throwing an insert in the rear as well.

    sworks epic ht (2018) + xx1 axs + g2 ultimate + sid ultimate sl + roval control sl

    hello everyone.

    finally managed to set up my ht. took me about 3 weeks of endless nights and days sourcing for the parts.

    it all started when i got an offer to buy a 2018 swork epic ht (size small) at a great discount. rushed to the store, paid for it without even looking at the frame.

    next - hunt for the parts from about 10 different shops - blame it on covid19. stocks running low everywhere. some parts were not available and since I didn't want to wait, had to settle for next available part.

    after looking at the completed bike... i am happy.

    feel free to share your thoughts guys and gals

    Brakeset : G2 Ultimate + Centerline X Rotor (160 F&R)

    BB : Ceramic Speed Coated
    Stem : 3T ARX LTD +- 6 Deg (90mm)
    Flatbar : Truvativ Descendant Carbon 750mm

    Cool-blue Rhythm Sweet bike

    That is one sweet looking bike. I built up an Sworks steel frame 26er back in the 90s when I got a great buy on the frame.
    Enjoy that ride!

    My Hard Tail Hard Front Forks All Hard

    I've got this 92 Alpinestars Al Mega XT T26 ... All stock no alterations. Not a shock to be found. I don't chance it on the off road anymore. It is a very comfortable street bike only now. I didn't crack it's titanium frame when I got it. I'm not going to crack it now.

    Dartmoor Primal 2020

    My new build is finally (mostly) finished so time to add it


    Frame: 2020 Dartmoor Primal 27.5
    Fork: Rockshox Pike RC 160mm
    Brakes: 203/180 Shiamano SLX M7100
    Cranks: Deore M6100 (only just installed these)
    Rear Derailleur: Deore M5120 10 Speed
    Pedals: M520 SPD
    Stem: 35mm Nukeproof Neutron
    Handlebar: 35mm Kore OCD
    Seatpost: Currently brandx 150mm but im waiting for my 170mm XL which got delayed
    Saddle: Charge spoon snow camo
    Bottom Bracket: XT
    Cassette: HG500 11-42 (will probably go 11-46 next time)
    Headset: ritchey comp
    Grips: DMR deathgrip snow camo
    Tires: Minion DHF / DHR II 2.3" Maxx terra
    Wheels: DT M1900
    Weight: about 13kg

    This was very much a best value for money build, all good stuff but nothing excessive. I decided to stay 10 speed as it performs fine and is cheap to replace (I have a habit of destroying drivetrains )

    Just got my Marino put together. Initial ride was great until I realized not all the frame saver had dried/dripped out and contaminated my rear brakes, thatís been fixed now (has nothing to do with Marino, I applied the frame saver, either I added to much or didnít wait long enough)


    All values in the bikecad drawing are shown at sag.

    Most of the build parts came off my old Stanton Switchback Mark1. Only thing not complete is Iím waiting to install bashguard, I prefer one since bb height is fairly low and I ride in pretty rocky areas

    Frame: Custom Marino 27.5 Reynolds 725
    Wheels: I9 Enduro 27.5
    Tires: Ethirteen A/T 2.4: Race Enduro Rear, Mopo TRS front, Cush core pro front and back
    Fork: 2017 Fox 36, upgraded with 2019 Grip2 Dampner, Vorsprung Smashpot
    Headset: Chris King
    Bottom Bracket: Hope BSA 30
    Seatpost: Bikeyoke Divine 31.6 185mm
    Seat: Chromag Trailmaster
    Brakes: Levers: Avid XO Trail RSC (basically Guide RSC) Caliper: Front CODE RSC, Rear Guide Ulitmate, Rotors: DP Brake 2-pc cryorotors, 203 front 180 rear, pads: dp dh-pro, rear lever and caliper use goodridge ss line
    Stem: Thomson 40mm 31.8
    Handlebar: Spank Vibrocore 31.8, 760 wide 25mm rise
    Grips: Chromag
    Drivetrain: SRAM XX1 shifter and derailleur. Ethirteen 9-46 cassette, derailleur modified with bikeyoke wheel, garbaruk cage and wheels, YBN chain

    this bike has taken many forms but this by far its most capable,

    Niner Ros 9
    DVO Diamond 150mm
    Box Two 11-46 drivetrain
    Hayes Ace Brakes
    Magura rotors 203, 180
    WTB Sraper i40 rims w/cushcore rear
    Maxxis DHF 2.8 front, Highroller II 2.8 rear
    Ergon GE1 evo grips and SM Enduro Comp saddle, oilslick colorway
    BrandX Ascend 150mm dropper
    Raceface Atlas 785mm bars, Chester 50mm stem, Evolve crank w/bash
    Crankbros Mallet Enduro E LS pedals

    no shimano or sram at all!

    such a badass ride.

    mattmatt this is All mountain hardtail thread, not a gram saving, lycra wearing, watt measuring, crosscountry hardtail thread. the only thing on that bike that could maybe be considered all mountain would be the eagle...

    Just built this, one ride on it and couldnít be happier with it. Recycled wheels and 32 Fox but the fork isnít holding it back too much. Corners like crazy and rides nice and soft.

    Cheers, love that the largest size doesn't look like a gate which can happen with some frames.

    Sweet! I hadn't heard of Curve Cycling, so I just checked out their site. Interestingly, I recently ordered a custom Kingdom Vendetta (150mm fork) and the geo numbers look very close to a size XM Downrock - 65 deg HA, 76 deg SA, 620 ETT, 460 reach.

    Project Sixpack bars.

    Chris King headset
    Rockshox Sektor DPC 150mm (new)
    XTR brakes (180mm) and shifter (new)
    XT wheelset (used)
    Kendra Nevegal X Pro 26Ē (new)
    Saint pedals (my parts bin)
    Sunrace 11-40 10 speed (new)
    32 tooth narrow wide chainring (new)
    Magura Vyron 150mm dropper post (used)

    I have only done 2 commuting rides so far.

    My question is on the green bike. I bought it for $50 at the co-op. No branding on it due to the paint job. It is too big for me. I knew that, I just needed a frame for all the stuff removed from the Cotic. I am trying to sell it. Does anyone have any ideas as to the brand/model? Or is it just a cheapo, department store aluminum frame?





    Thanks.
    Here in trump tyranny that green frame is familiar but cant put my finger exactly on it. It "seems" pretty higher grade due to the chainstay bridge and looks a LOT like the old haro hardtails...which at one time were very very nice steel or alu....but only for a short time. You either have a nice alu. one or a lesser imitation...but the chainstay is a giveaway towards a nicer frame set. personally i would sand that thing down and you may find some residual stickers as few people sand all the way to bare metal...and custom paint it...ALL BROWN>>>my favorite!
