    That is a gorgeous bike, but there's something about lefties that I'm not so keen on. I like to know that there are stanctions on both sides of my wheel

    It's obviously exactly the bike you want though and please don't think me critical - I love it - so good luck with it!

    David, I got back into bicycling a few months ago and I have never owned or even ridden a FS bike. I went to a local park for a demo and rode the Rush and Prophet for a couple of hours. I had never heard of or seen a 'lefty' before, lol, but I was quite impressed with it. I also so like the simplicity of the single pivot beefy swingarm. I decided on the Rush because its lighter, lower, and it steers and accelerates quicker, than the Prophet. We don't have any mountains in S. Texas so I didn't need anything heavier. Anyway, you don't even notice that the lefty is a single stantion fork. Alignment is excellent with hands off the bar, and fork doesn't tend to swing to one side unless you pick it up over head to place in truck, lol!

    That Eli is a great riding trailbike. I loved mine, but I cracked two frames where the lower seatstay connects to the main frame. Keep an eye on those welds. If you need a rear swing arm, bushings, or any of the linkage assembly shoot me an e-mail.

    2005 Kona Hoss, Upgrades: Hayes Hydraulic brakes 8" front, 6" rear; Marzocchi All-Mountain SL fork; Race Face Deus BB and Crankset; Azonic seat post; Sun Single rack rims with XT hubs.

    Orignal rims broke, also bent the stock seat post, and the mechanical disks that come with it wouldn't stop me. Works pretty well for now.

    I just ordered a Norco Six One, all mountain full suspension bike which hopefully I will have next week.

    I really like the van36, it's very plush, hold its line on the rough and very forgiving on drops and jumps. I bought the Nomad as a one bike to do it all especially my riding stlye is becoming more agressive/light FR.

    I like the HA of the bike with the Nixon for all around riding (I'm still climbing), it's steeper than the 36. It is better in climbing. For now it is enough for what I'm doing.

    Just picked up my new Norco All mountain Six One. Sram X9 components, Marz Z1 Light, comes with a Fox DHX3 but I am changing that out for a DHX5 spring. Upgraded rims to the Mavic DeeTraks.

    I want to ride it so bad, but it is pouring rain right now.

    Looks sick

    how's that thing ride? I really like that frame design. Do you think you will eventually go to at least a 140mm front fork to balance the 6" rear?

    OK, I'll play. But jeez, is it really that hard to resize pics? Horizontal scrolling on just about every page....

    Anyway, first off is my trail bike, pretty much stock '04 Slayer 70, XT everything. My only 9-speed bike.

    Second one is my heavy rig. I've since swapped the Fox for a ZAM-1 and wheels for 321s. 8-speed, Avid disks, XTR, Race Face, blah, blah.

    Thanks man

    haven't been out on the new wheels yet, but when I had my other wheelset on and I ride it it was effing sweet. I am coming from a 4 year old Trek 4300 HT so any suspension would feel nice, but this is amazing. Still trying to work around the too low A-to-C of the fork though.

    I am thinking of going to the All Mountain 1 or 2 soon enough. (upgradeitis, ain't it a b1tch?)

    It's a long story:

    We each have 4 bikes (FS, HT, Hybids, Road), the full sussers we use for the trails on the Niagara Escarpment in Collingwood, Ontario

    The Id is mine, basic XC XT build, perfect for the rocks and roots as well as the sand we ride up here.

    Gets complicated with Mts. M's Blur...picked up the frame, fork, crank set, 80% of the build was swaped from her old DJ, i added a seatpost, saddle, cables & housing, and a headset

    The little kid's SJ is mostly factory, but she has now upgraded the seatpost, saddle, and bars

    Look forward to those family rides when we can all get together

    bullit with a funky paint job

    Finally got the forks on, but I still got a few upgrades to make (brakes, wheels).

    Flat black paint NEVER gets clean, even with scrubbing. It looked so cool when in was fresh.

    I think I stumbled onto something pretty sweet with the truck bed liner on the rear triangle. When I got the frame, it had bad chainslap wear and lots of dings-- I didn't have the time or money to get a real paintjob so I went for it black hammerite and a ten dollar can of bed liner. I couldn't get the frame apart so I left the "guts" the original trans red and thought it came out pretty sweet.

    I'll ask it again, to see if I get a response this time: why don't we include total cost in the AM setup specs? I'm conjecturing this is an unpopular spec because some would rather their significant other not glimpse the grand total of his/her habit.

    You don't think posting 5 pics and listing every separate piece of metal, plastic, rubber, and carbon on our bikes is an effort to impress?

    Here's mine -


    06 Reign 20" frame
    06 Z1 Light
    Old XT cranks
    XTR shift bits with XT front der and cassette
    Juicy 5s
    Thomson post
    FSA FR220 stem
    Hussefelt bars
    SDG BelAir
    Performance Loco wheels Tioga Factory DH tires

    I'd say I have between $2500 and $3000 in it. I am a little scared to know really. It's basically a really nice Reign 1, but not really.

    the dhx so it's not a final opinion but so far it feels awsome! A few more rides and I will

    Very nice pumpkinbiter!

    I hope you don't mind but I linked your bike in the Cannondale Forum as many people are curious and interested in the I9 Lefty wheelset... me included. It's the first good picture of the front hub I see and it really got me drooling!

    I'm thinking about selling my Crossmax SL wheelset (I'm tired to relube the freehub every few months or so) to get myself a I9 wheelset built on Mavic XM819 rims. It will probably end up a bit heavier but stronger, with a quicker engagement and finally, a mostly black wheelset! (silver looks whimpy to me).

    Thanks!
    Link it up baby. Those lefty freaks need to know.

    I didn't know I9 would build wheels using anything but the DT rims.
    I am happy with my DT's. They seem strong enough??
    Good luck getting your hands on a set. I hear they are back ordered
    like crazy and they don't seem to be increasing there output. I hope
    they pick up the pace, the product is good!

    Yes, they can build them to any 32 hole rims you like but it can make the wait times even longer and change the pricing. I asked them and they can use the XM819 but because of the Fore drilling (you know, they are just drilled on the outer wall so they can't just put the spokes through the rims), it complicates the build process, they also require custom spoke length and the rim itself is more expensive and harder to get. If I do, I'll probably wait for the off season. It can be reassuring that it takes so much time, I prefer to wait longer and get a perfect wheel than have a wheel built too quickly...

    It is an 04 Ironhorse Hollowpoint (Northface Branded). It will move..but wears me down
    on repeat climbs. The rougher the trail the better, but nothing too rough out here.

    My bike is still in an evolution phase. I plan to replace the rims with either DEETRAKS or Bombshell Fat Daddys because I keep on breaking the spokes of my rear wheels at least once every 2 rides. I will also replace the pedals with Crank bros. Mallet C to aid me in climbing, as well as change the Crankset to Shimano XT-760 or Shimano Saints Triple. Lastly, I will be replacing the shifters (rapid rise) & Cassette (11-34) to Shimano XT's.

    bpnic,
    Nice lefty conversion Glad to see people using them! But how did you use fix the bottom clamp to the steerer tube? It looks like you pinned it. Did it slide in o.k. or did you have to press it in?

    Thanks. The version I have is the bolted Alum. Lefty max. It's not bonded like the carbon max. Installation was pretty easy. I just tapped, tightened, and riveted it in place.

    I miss my Coiler just a little. Here's some pictures (bad timing) from a warmup session. I think it's the last ride the Coiler ever saw with me. She weighed around 34 pounds.






    Sold my Coiler frame, threw most of the parts on my new Addict hardtail. Got rid of the XTR in favor of SRAM, and a few small changes here and there.





    The Addict now has Saint cranks and a 50mm Syncros Bearhug stem.

    * Frame Size & Color: Addict Cycles DJ -- 11" frame -- Anodized Black -- lots of machining, weight is a hair under 5 pounds
    * Fork: Rockshox Pike
    * Brakes:Avid Juicy 7 with Hayes v-cut 203mm rotors or lasercut aluminum rotors
    * Cranks:Saint
    * Front Derailleur: E13 SRS
    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM x.9 midcage
    * Pedals: Kona Jackshit
    * Stem: Syncros Bearhug
    * Handlebar: Titec Hellbent
    * Seatpost: Thomson Elite
    * Saddle: WTB SpeedV
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano
    * Cassette:Shimano XTR
    * Headset: Chris King
    * Grips: ODI Rogue Lock-ons
    * Front Tire: DMR Moto Digger 2.35
    * Front Rim: Halo SAS 24"
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Diatech Swinger
    * Rear Tire: DMR Moto Digger 2.35
    * Rear Rim: Halo SAS 24"
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Diatech Swinger
    * Weight 29.5 pounds

    Are you asking me? Sorry, it gets quite confusing in these long threads; the quote feature makes things easier to understand.

    I decided to go hardtail, because I found that I really didn't need the rear suspension all that much. The only time I really miss it is when I race DH.

    Fox RP23 rear (very effective)
    Syntace 90 mm 5 deg. stem
    EC70 Riser MonkeyBar
    Syntace Moto clampon grips
    X-Gen front Derailleur
    X.9 rear w/ long cage
    SRAM 991 rear cassette
    SRAM 991 chain
    Avid Juicy 7s w/ 180 rotors front and back
    Shimano XT Hollowtech w/ Phill Wood rebuild Bottom Bracket
    Race Face Team chain rings (22,32,44)
    Toothfairy chainring Bashguard
    SRAM X-0 trigger shifters
    Mavic CrossMAX XL wheels and hubs
    Kenda 2.35 Blur Groove up front and 2.1 Navegal rear (with tubes)
    Gravity Dropper Seatpost w/ 4"/3"/0" three position drop
    Specialized BG Avatar saddle
    Pedals switch between Time Attak Carbon and Welgo Magnesium Platforms
    Avid Flak Jacket cables (all cables trimmed after this photo).

    With all this heavy equiment, comes in just under 29 bls.

    However, even at this weight, it climbs so much better then my 30 lbs Blur. Much better suspension design. I love the DW-Link. Also go down like a Nomad. I am in love with this bike. Only one ride under my belt so far, but love at first ride.

    My aim is to build a bike which is light enough to use for long all day rides on technical trail as well as strong enough for some light DH and FR. I'm not doing big jumps and drops and I'm just coasting down the DH trails so for now I hope I'm fine ... :-)

    My Jamis Dakar XLT custom 2.5

    I call it a 2.5 b/c it's spec'd somwhere right below the XLT 3.0

    Here's a pic it took of it right after the build.

    I have since put some Saint Cranks on it instead of the LX Hollowtech II's b/c I got a killer deal.



    I have also changed to XT/Rhyno Lite's instead of the x317's.

    Yeah I know... these are typically lightweight XC bikes, but it has been serving my AM needs for five years now. It's proven to be pretty tough. Cracked a headset on a landing and replaced it with King. No problems since, which is good considering that I abuse it pretty good.
