    Bought this bike new when I first started riding. I've upgraded most everything as things have either worn out or broken. Not the best, but it gets the job done. I'm hopefully going to upgrade to a F/S by the end pof the year so probably won't spend a lot on this one unless something has to be relaced to keep 'er running.

    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Shifters: Shimano Deore (need to be replaced)
    Pedals: Crank Borother Candy Cs
    Stem: Generic
    Handlebar: Generic
    Seatpost: Generic
    Saddle: Titec Ithys Gove Ti
    Bottom Bracket: No clue, some squarer taper thing
    Cassette: Shimano XT 11-32
    Headset: 1 1/8 Aheadset
    Grips: Performance lock on's (look like ODI Ruffians for 1/2 the $$)
    Tires: Panaracer Fire XC 26x2.1"
    Wheels: Vuelta rims, generic hubs, straight gauge spokes (need to be replaced)
    Weight: unofficial about 30 lbs

    I think your saddle is a GDS... your way of sitting in the bike is wrong, trust me.

    take it easy, I'm only joking... I think that your bike has the perfect setup to do it all and don't worry about her except, you know, saddle position .

    Peyto Cycles Wild Bill frame, 05 RS Pike Team, Hope/King wheels, Race Face/SRAM/Shimano mixed drive bits, Avid Juicy-5 brakes. Thomson stem/ProTaper bar/Gravity Dropper Descender post. (makes the bike even better!) Tires vary.

    I love this bike. It does it all. Got the frame for about half his regular price; not custom to me but, it was exactly what I wanted when shopping, and still is. At least for a hardtail.

    Hey scrublover, do you have a salsa skewer on your Pike? If you do, how does it work? Or is it a Pike w/different lowers?

    Here's my 456, an older pic, now its got a front derailleur, longer cranks, shorter stem, different bars. I'll post a new pic soon.

    Yep. If you pull your Maxle apart, it'll be easy to see what I did; easier than me trying to describe it. The only extra bit I did was to machine (well, Dremel) part of the Salsa cam bit to replicate the shape of the cam bit on the Maxle. Been working great for nearly two years now, with no issues whatsoever. Salsa works, and I've got a Hope on my Lyrik, though that required a bit more work. The bits for the newer generation Maxles I think are not as friendly to being modded.

    Disclaimer: obviously RS would say to not do this/void your warrantee/blahblah. Do at your own risk, tighten everything up if you do it. And use Loctite on the skewer/lever bits that you replace, even though the female threaded portion has a lock/set screw.

    Other than a road bike...

    This is my only hardtail. It works real good on pavement...like most hardtails...but I did ride it on a dirt road too for some excitement.

    Here are a few I've owned over time:

    Karate Monkey:



    Snipes 30-06 - fun bike!





    Surly Instigator with custom powdercoat - awesome ride!







    Niner EMD 9 - really fun 29er





    Zion 853 - 69er with White Brothers fork up front - short lived but fun



    I also rode is shortly with a Psylo up front:



    Now I've got this Vintage Marin:



    And this On One Inbred 29er single speed:




    And let's see I've also owned a Marin Nail Trail for a while, a Soul Cycles Hardline and a DMR Rhythm dirt jump bike.

    I wonder what'll be next!?

    Your "fully guys" must be XC racers or roadies or something.

    I mean "here" as in this forum, not "here" as in where I live. In my necks of the woods we ride big bike fully's. Hell even the XC guys ride like that, there's not much tame terrain here.

    Another Handjob...

    Its not light, but I built it with strength and reliability in mind. It rides well on my local trails and everywhere else its been since I put it together in 2003.

    19" Handjob frame

    Dany: what's the deal with the seat post on the Norco?
    is that some sort of telescoping seat post, or am I way off?

    i ride both my rigid (for now) monocog and my blizzard on the same trails,XC or AM.
    some time this month,i'll be puttin a leftover ('nother project )100mm fork on the 'cog.
    the blizzard (rocky mtn)is set up right now w/ 2.1"s,100mm marzocchi and deore V's,but at least by the end of summer (hopefully) it'll be sportin 2.5 f/2.25 r tires,avid bb7's (i already have the wheelset:sun rhynolite's on lx disc hubs),and a 130mm fork (then the 'cog will get that m'zocchi,as it's a better fork than the leftover).

    Here is my hardtail not much for now but hopefully this summer I'll get a new fork and then it should be complete.

    Sexy...but Flexy. When I first got it there was virtually no rear braking power. I noticed that the seat stays would flex everytime I engaged the v-brake. Finally got the brake booster and all was/is good

    Actually, I originally built this bike for under 300 bucks with spare parts. (got the frame online for 180 and either already had, or got the rest of the stuff for cheap/free). I recently busted the rear wheel one too many times and decided to get a beefier rear wheel. So I guess it has cost me about 350 at this point. The bike weights a little above 27lbs.

    I really like seeing what is possible to ride on a such a stripped down bike. You can ride down almost any trail, unless it has huge manditory drops or gaps or something.

    Sweetness...
    Have you ever thought about trying 5-10 shoes? Those things are soo awesome for flat pedals. As someone how also rides clipless (use clipless on my Enduro with Sidis), I didn't want my feet to come off the pedals with flats. The 5-10s do the job really well. I was amazed. Check 'em out.

    Ehh its not that great of a fork. It came off of my IH Yakuza Aniki and was ridden on that for about 3 months. The fork has basically no adjustments at all and is not all that plush feeling. But I am a college student and it was laying around my garage and I decided to put it back to use on this project. The fork isnt all bad though. Its extremely beefy the stantions are super wide and the fork seems bombproof its just not that great of a ride compared to a high end fork.

    It's my everything...

    everything bike that is. I ride this thing anywhere and everywhere. Jumps, drops, trails, trails with jumps and drops. Really fast, really slow. Climbed up 8 miles straight, just to ride back down. I love this bike and can't imagine having another. It literally does everything. It's a Santa Cruz Chameleon with all the goodies.

    stock, with a kalloy seatpost, x-7 triggers, a ritchey girder front wheel, usually clipless pedals and a fatguy spring (which is too much... mistake). This is easily the most fun bike i've ever had.

    This is my 'AM/FR' hardtail hardtail; it's a Cotic BFe - Reynolds 853 main triangle. I'm 6'2" and it's a medium (17.5") frame.

    I went for sturdy, reliable kit rather than anything fancy; AM SL1 forks, 203mm Juicy 5's, X9 shifters and rear mech, XT front mech and chainset, Thomson post, Hope stem, Easton bars, SDG saddle... wheels are Magura branded DT 440 hubs and DT5.1 rims. Have just been converted (well, for a while anyway!) to single ply Maxxis Minions; they're a bit heavy and slow but the grip on non-surfaced trails is awesome - and I can run them at a reasonably low pressure without my lardy ass causes too many pinchflats.

    (I cannot sing the praises of the Rohlof SLT-99 chain enough; I am convinced of its contribution to transmission longevity. I have had two on different bikes for several months and neither shows any chain elongation. Also, the pin retention force is higher than that of even the SRAM Cross-step.)

    Found it!

    Its called a Crud Guard (and I think the front version is called a crud catcher.)

    It can be found at https://www.nwmtb.com/.

    To be honest I think its pretty good. Does the job reasonably well and doesn't get in the way

    Here's my Hardrock

    I don't know if it is really considered All-Mountain, but I ride it damn near everywhere and have fun doing it. The Float 120 RL was by far my biggest splurge, but I got a good deal on Ebay and I made about $70 back on the old MZIII.

    Medium '06 Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc

    Upgrades:
    Float 120
    Thudbuster LT
    BB7s (185/160)
    SPD M520s
    XR 3D (60mm x 12 deg)
    Rogue lock-ons

    Stock:
    2x9 SRAM drivetrain
    Singletrack rims

    Soon to have:
    Rampage 2.35 front/Rampage or Small Block Eight 2.35 rear

    Eventually:
    WTB seat
    I'll probably replace the BB, hubs, and headset with nicer items as they wear out.

    I think it weighs about 29 lbs now, even with the thudbuster-I still have the hard seat post, but it is only a couple of ounces lighter.

    I put this together with spare parts I had lying around. The only things I had to buy were the bar, the rims, and the spokes.

    FRAME: 2006 Norco Manik
    FORK: Marzocchi 66VF
    WHEELS: KK front hub, Formula rear hub, Mavic EX721 rims, DT Swiss 2.0 spokes
    BRAKES: Hayes 9, 8" front, 6" rear
    BAR: Kona DH Riser
    STEM: Specialized Mobius
    GRIPS: Axiom Tattoo
    SHIFTER: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
    REAR DERAILLEUR: X-9 (Deore in the picture)
    CHAIN: Shimano HG53
    CASSETTE: Shimano LX
    CRANKSET: Raceface Evolve DH with MEC bashguard, 32T chainring, and a Dirty guide
    BB: Shimano XT external
    PEDALS: Wellgo platforms
    TIRES: WTB Weirwolf 2.55LT (Noxian NBX 2.3 front and Specialized Roll-X 2.0 rear in picture)
    SADDLE: WTB Rocket V
    POST: Truvativ XR

    Planet-X Armadillo
    Marzocchi AM2
    Avid BB7
    Saint Cranks with DRS (later replaced with LG1)
    SRAM X-9

    I already ordered a new frame which will host most of the components on the bike. The fork was always too long, works for downhill, but makes the front end wander... I think I'll make a fully rigid SS out of this.

    Hey everybody!

    I have updated my Devinci Hucker with a new lighter wheel set. Gone are the boat anchor doubletracks. I have replaced them with Sun SOS rims and Formula hubs.....things are much lighter now. Once the 2.5 Weirwolf's wear out I'll be getting lighter and narrower rubber too. As she sits now the bike weighs in at around 33 lbs.

    "The Present" link below shows my husbands Alias upgraded & 130mm travel up front. It's my ride until I get my next bike, hopefully one in "The Future" link below.

    I'll play...

    06 Chameleon built with parts lying around as a trasher bike. Awesome geo for aggressive riding and corners like crazy it's like cheating! I takes me a while to adjust to my other bikes when riding super tight switchbacks after being on the lizard for a while.

    My 17" (L) 2006 Kona Stuff do-it-all



    I got this bike secondhand, stock and then upgraded. It's my first 'gravity' bike. I picked a U-turn 409 (coil) Pike, X9 drivetrain and I recently got a set Hope M4 discbrakes (not pictured yet). I've had it for about a year now and it has been used this far as an Urban Assault/streetbike, 4x and freerider. This set-up really works for me. The bike really shines on rough descents with the fork on 140mm and has exeeded my expectations so far

    I don't have a lot of 'action-shots' but here's is one dropping of a table in a local skatepark.

    Gotta love HT's. I have a semi-crappy Trek 3700, still all-stock, just did a little weight-saving. I'm saving up for a GF Tassajara, or maybe a Specialized Rockhopper. I've ridden both extensively, and couldn't imagine buying a Full-suspension bike.

    It is my least favorite. I have not taken the marin out yet, but the dmr is the most fun to ride, with the gt a close second. I have not found the right stem length on the leader to be totally comfortable.

    Here's my go-fast hard tail. Giant Formula 1 Composite. Just a little over 21.5lbs...that includes the pedals and bottle cages. Most interesting part may be the Paul's Components Thumbies...accept Shimano's 9sp drop bar bar-end shifters and convert them into retro-style top-mount thumb shifters. These are the lightest indexed shifters that can be run... but efficient ergonomics are sacrificed a bit. I've also got a Pugsley that I ride when speed is not the priority...and extremely loose or soft surfaces are. Two hardtails that are definitely near the ends of the two extremes.

    DJ bikes honestly make the perfect all round (not just AM, everything) bike.

    Reasons:
    • Its all in the fork. Im running a PIKE on mine. Something with adjustable travel and a lockout is needed. For AM riding I have my fork at around 120. DH - 140. Road and DJ's - 95.
    • As these bikes are hartails, that means you can comfortably ride them on road and cross country with out losing to much energy.
    • Being hartails also keeps the weight down. I was able to have beefy cranks and heavy wheels as the frame was light!
    • Tyres are extremely important. Holy rollers are light and get decent traction on the dirt. They also roll incredibly well on the pavement. That said I recently swithed to Kenda Small Block 8 to get a little more traction.
    Problems: The only suffering is I find is on steep climbs that need traction. There are few of them in my area but they are bad enough to make me consider a dually. I consider it for a little while then I come around and realise my bike is perfect.

    Single speed:
    I recently went single speed as I kept killing derailuers. It has made me much faster as I was constantly standing. This means I was able to lower my seat and handle the downhills as a different beast. I strongly recomend giving it a go. However, the longest SS ride I have been on was 10 miles. I wouldnt want to go on a longer ride.

    Hey all, I have been lurking on this thread a bit prior to building up this bike, my first AM rig!!! Definite lack of Specialists around here!!! I just built this up yesterday, after riding strictly XC bikes for a while I decided I wanted something a little more huckable. Fork is a Reba 100mm and I need to change it! Considering a Revelation 426 U-turn air. Wheels are cheap Rhyno lite on Deore hubs, I would like to swap those with a nice @2000g all mountain wheelset. Everything else will stay except the controls (deore dual control) may be upgraded if and when budget allows. Bike currently weighs just under 27lbs.

    Sweet!
    was one of the bikes i considered getting, didn't know it comes in white...

    suggestion;
    if u don't use the cage take it off, bet it'll look better without.

    Got to say I agree with you there, that's why I'm making my next bike an STP 0, already purchased the pikes for it!
    I reckon only taller / bigger people may be limited with regards to cockpit room, for me it should be ideal even for the long rides, and 1x9 will be plenty of gears.

    You know I've been looking at the geo numbers for heaps of different bikes (including the likes of Chameleon & Scirocco) and really there isn't that much difference. People say the short chainstays are the downfall when it comes to DH or XC riding, but then take a look at the overall numbers, the STP has a longer wheelbase than giants entry level XC bike (Giant Alias or Giant XTC) in a 17" size! The STP will have nicer all round geometry & really the only downside (which isn't a downside to me) is having to have a bit more of the seatpost sticking out for those XC rides.

    Haha yeah it will probably look a lot better with it off, but they tossed it in with my bike so I did not even think about it. as vain as it may be I will probably take it off soon now that I think about it.

    I got this bike secondhand, stock and then upgraded. It's my first 'gravity' bike. I picked a U-turn 409 (coil) Pike, X9 drivetrain and I recently got a set Hope M4 discbrakes (not pictured yet). I've had it for about a year now and it has been used this far as an Urban Assault/streetbike, 4x and freerider. This set-up really works for me. The bike really shines on rough descents with the fork on 140mm and has exeeded my expectations so far

    I don't have a lot of 'action-shots' but here's is one dropping of a table in a local skatepark.

    This bike is gorgeous!!! I know what my next hardtail is gonna be. Excellent work with the mods!!!

    agreed, STP is a good frame for everything, just get a thomson seat post if u need more then abit sticking out.


    some minor upgrades, never would i have thought that getting new brake cables would make so much difference(in a good way of course), even when my cables(stock) aren't even 6mths old.

    headset, as good as it gets, don't think i'll ever need another headset.

    barends, can't get enough of skulls...

    saving for some wheels....

    My Stiffee

    I haven't posted here in a while tonight it warmed up from 28 yesterday to 65 today so I jumped out of work early and did some night riding. Not the best picture but shows some updates.



    It's a Cove Stiffee with '08 Fox Vanilla RLC XTR and XT bits Juciy 5 185 front 160 rear.
    Not in full gear missing the setback thomson and fizik saddle but those are on the trainer bike being used more often.

    There are some sweet bikes through here hope everyone uses them for what you or someone else built them for.

    Enjoy!

    I know I posted this bike on the last page but I have finally finished making the build more appropriate for all mountain use, got an 08 Fox Talas RLC fork, Spinergy Xyclone Enduro Wheels, and an Easton Vice AM Stem. Bike rides amazing and feels good in the mud (we finally have a little mud around D.C.) Also added the orange Acid pedals, giving clipless a try for AM use, I use eggbeaters on my XC bikes, this is my first AM bike. Any suggestions or opinions are greatly appreciated. Please note the seatpost is in "getting to the trail" mode. One thing I am considering is a Speedball R or Gravity dropper seatpost.

    £600/£700 To Spend On Hardtail

    I need to buy a Hardtail as a present for Christmas but only have £600-700 to spend.
    I think my best options are a Cannondale F4 or a Specialised Rockhopper Pro
    The person who is getting this wants a light bike so I presume the Cannondale is lightest but is it as good a bike as the Specialised.
    Should I be looking at any other bikes?
