    Yet another raw 575 :D

    Here's my 575 on a "stable state", there is no such thing as final state so here is my current version. I am currently waiting for a derailleur hanger bolt (that backed out on the first ride and got lost). I will probably cut the extra steerer once I decide on the final stem height.

    * Frame Size & Color: Medium Yeti 575 Raw
    * Fork: Rock Shox Pike 454 Air U-turn
    * Brakes: Shimano Deore XT 180mm front / 160mm rear
    * Cranks: Shimano Deore XT
    * Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT (with Rollamajig)
    * Pedals: Shimano 540
    * Stem: FSA XC-140 120mm (for now)
    * Handlebar: Easton Monkeylite XC
    * Seatpost: Thomson
    * Saddle: Selle Italia X0
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano Deore XT integrated BB
    * Cassette: Shimano Deore XT
    * Headset: Chris King Nothreadset
    * Grips: ODI LockOn
    * Front Tire: Intense CC 2.25 (probably switch to Nobby Nic 2.4 soon)
    * Front Rim: DT Swiss 5.1D
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro 2 / Maxle
    * Rear Tire: Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.4
    * Rear Rim: DT Swiss 5.1D
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Hope Pro 2 / Hope QR
    * Weight No idea

    Check the pics below.

    Cheers,
    Cris

    Hi guys;

    I've check around all the pics and specs and I very interesting to know some SC Nomad with AM 05 SL . To be honesty I can not indentify if this fork is 110-130 or 130-150, once if you measure this, you will find another mesure.

    My currently bike is a NRS with the AM 05 SL, with hayes/salsa/and SID Air Shock, that's mean that this bike is completely out of shape/geometry....for AM frame.

    Can I have the same performace with this frame with this fork???I've to move for another one??

    Some guess??????

    ... and if we just ... gilded piggy

    here's my '02 switchblade set up at 5 X 5.5. fox float r front, fox float r propedal rear, nice and simple. rohloff rear, which i love, avid juicys, hopey dampner, ergo grips.

    as i'm getting older (42) i've decided to sacrifice some weight for comfort.

    i.ve managed, through careful product selection, to raise the bike's weight from 25#s to 31.5#s and i threw 20lbs on myself to make sure i had the complete AM experience

    climbs great, descend great and doesn't break. i couldn't ask for much more, except for a better engine.

    Is that a single speed fully? If so, I must admit it's the first SB fully i've seen.

    Hey MC Storm, If you got a flat Handle bar, you wouldnt have to have the flipped stem. it looks like you are flipping it to offset that riser handle bar.

    Pedal upgrade

    Ha ha! Yeah, you're right about the pedals.

    I've been deliberating whether to get Time Atacs XS, Speedplay Frogs, or Egg Beaters.

    Still havn't decided.

    So, I've just been riding (or you might say floating) around on these toe-clips for now.

    Still can't believe after saving up for soooo long, I've finally been able to get this bike! It's soooooo fun to ride!!!!

    I have not first hand eperience with the speedplays but I like ATACs and eggbeaters a hell of a lot more than SPD which was a quantum leap forward from toe clips. Yes, I used them for years and even did some races on them. For what it's worth, the Times and Crank bros feel almost identical and the only real difference between the two is that the Time seem a little faster to engage when pushing forward because the Eggbeaters have to roll forward requiring that you take some pressure off the shoe. It's not much and certainly not a big deal.

    Ummm..Newbie here, been lurking around this forum for a week or so (Sooo much info and good reading!) and finally stopped long enough to post. Alright, I"m gonna come right on out and say it, I know I'll probably get flogged for it knowing what the general opinoin is here, but I kinda love the looks of the San Andreas... ... and have for many years. I finally got myself one. I've been XC'ing since '96. A Raleigh Hardtail got me hooked into the sport and I quickly upgraded to a '97 Proflex 857. I loved that ride. It was perfect for the kind of riding I was doing. I started riding with a different group of guys, these guys a bit more hardcore than my xc buddies. Needless to say the Proflex lasted a month and a half. Looking around for a new bike, I was amazed at the affordability of the San Andreas. I remember how much it cost to build one of these rigs up back in the mid '90's. So i got my bike from..you guessed it...Adrenaline Bike. I got the DHS with the Hone build kit, and I'm loving it!

    Sweet! bike. I think the enduros are very tough AM bikes. More on the side of DH. That shock is amazing that it can fit. What size is it and did what hardware did you use to fit it?

    shock is an 8.75 x 2.75.
    the only hardware needed is a 15mm to 8mm x 22mm reducer to mount the shock to the shuttle. you will also need to remove the DU bush from the opposite eyelet.

    it's the coil, and I'm really impressed with mine as well. I figured the coil would involve less screwing around (pumping mainly), but I've been pleasantly suprised with the amount of adjustability the dhx air rear shock has without having to mess with the pressure.

    My X6

    Recently finished Ventana X-6. I also have a Romic shock that'll yield 5.32" travel with the 6" rockers that are on it if I decide the 6" travel is too much. There's 130-150mm AM1 internals hiding inside those Z1FR lowers, so I can set it up for 5 or 6".
    Now if I can only sneak it out between the kids' soccer/hockey.

    Cheers,

    Mike E.

    man that things looks high. i dont know if I even like 6" of travel anymore. I love it when i need it. But I always hated it when climbing & fast cornering.

    Im down to a 4" and love it. I feel so much more stable, nimble, and balanced.

    sweet ride

    Ha! You beat me to it Axxon. I was going to post a pic of the 45 lb Huffy I left behind in my parent's basment. Your cruiser is way better. I love the seat.... not exactly svelte, is it

    I only saw a few cannondale lefties. I've got to represent. Its an '05 Prophet 1000. I just got it from the shop I work at. Its been there for a while and I got it for a steal. So its new, just two years old. Enjoy. BTW, its muddy but the distance and brown color hides it well.

    Thanks man. I just got into mountain biking. The guys at the shop have been bugging me for a while now. So I gave it a shot a month or so ago and I LOVED it. I felt like a little kid doing jumps in my driveway. So I had to get one. The boss and I worked out a deal. I'm very happy about the whole thing. I absolutely LOVE the bike. It rides smooth and handles great. I've crashed quite a few times in a short amount of time and it hasnt complained once. Not even a scratch. I kind of wonder if the color is powdercoated on and not paint. Its the matte brown color. I couldn't find any info anywhere about it.

    '05 Rocky Mountain Switch SL - EMS special

    I got a RM Switch SL for Father's Day (thanks Mom!), I've been riding it for the last 3 or 4 months every chance I get. I wasn't really looking for a new bike, but I got such a deal on it, I couldn't pass it up. I came off a Titus RX100, this bike has made an amazing difference in my riding. I love it. EMS changed up the bike a bit from the standard configuration. Its heavy, but I seem to still be able to ride it just like my lighter bikes.

    Frame Easton 7005 FS RAD SL Taperwall Aluminum
    Frame Weight 3.59 kg / 7.9 lb (18.0?)
    Fork Marz Z1FR1
    Front Travel 6"
    Rear Shock Fox DHX4.0
    Rear Travel 6"
    Brakes Hayes HFX9 - carbon
    Shifters SRAM 7.0 TrIggers
    Hubs (RR/FR) DT Champion
    Tires (RR/FR) Kenda Nevegal/Maxxis Minion 2.5
    Saddle Coda Cheapie
    Weight - 35lbs or so

    Well I guess I might as well add my bike to this thread, it is my All-mountain bike, my Downhill bike, my Super D bike, my North Shore bike and my XC race bike:




    Quick parts spec:
    -06 Banshee Chaparral
    -Boxxer WC
    -721 rims, Hope hubs
    -Mono 6s
    -Hone Crankset
    -e.13DRS
    -Sram shifting.
    -43.8 pounds

    I love it. It can go literally anywhere, and it is also at home with a 5" fork, great bike.
    Only thing holding it back is weight, high gearing, and a bit tall up front for super steep/tech climbs; I would like to get something like a Pyre for some serious epics/all-day-rides but all in good time.

    N.B: After seeing so many bikes with co-ordinated anodizing I am starting to wish I had some extra bling like that, I doubt I could have waited though, I just had to get the bike asap and I had it up at the top of a trail on the shore within an hour of picking it up! There was no time to lose...

    Brand spankin' new (to me) Raleigh Phase, built up with parts from my old bike. I do seem to have contracted an acute case of UGI, so expect to see improvements soon.

    My Ride (upgraded)

    Here's the updated spec of my ride - comments very welcome.

    The frame is by a German company called CUBE (HUGE company in Europe), its the 03 spec and at the time they had obviously not been told about the "All Mountain" standard hence it being called the "XC" pro - take my word for it this is no straight XC bike, its got 130mm rear travel as I have set it up and realy is a nice burly frame that takes anything i can throw at it.

    In 2004 CUBE released the AMS ... hmmm, wonder what the AM stands for eh


    *Frame: ---------- 03/04 CUBE "XC" Pro
    * Fork: ---------- 2006 Rockshox Pike 454 Air U-Turn
    * Shock: ---------- Manitou Swinger 4-way air
    * Brakes: ---------- Shimano XT M765 with 203/160mm Hope floating rotors
    * Cranks: ---------- Shimano XT Hollowtech 2 (Midleburn middle ring)
    * Front Derailleur: ---------- Shimano XT
    * Rear Derailleur: ---------- Sram X0
    * Pedals: ---------- Shimano M545
    * Stem: ---------- Thomson Elite
    * Handlebar: ---------- FSA Carbon Risers
    * Seatpost: ---------- Thomson Elite
    * Saddle: ---------- Specialized Rival TI
    * Bottom Bracket: ---------- Shimano XT Hollowtech 2
    * Cassette: ---------- Shimano XT
    * Headset: ---------- FSA
    * Grips: ---------- Imperial Lockon
    * Front Tire: ---------- Panaracer Cinder 2.25 (kevlar)
    * Front Rim: ---------- Mavic XM819 Disc
    * Front Hub/Skewer: ---------- Hope Pro II / 20mm Maxle
    * Rear Tire: ---------- Panaracer Cinder 2.25 (kevlar)
    * Rear Rim: ---------- Mavic XM819 Disc
    * Rear Hub/Skewer ---------- Hope Pro II
    * Weight ---------- 29.5lbs









    What do you think?

    Sorry for the lame basement pics...just put the new rear shock on & was excited, so I snapped a few pics. Love the bike so far. I plan to change the wheelset & fork soon...might repaint the frame too. Cant wait to get out & try the new rear shock! Also have some X.9 gear to go on whenever I stop riding it long enough to do it!

    (PS...I know I need to lose the FOX sticker...used to have a FOX shock on there. That sticker is a bugger to get off!)

    My Iron Horse Warrior SE. Its completly stock and I just got it saturday. I know its not the best bike out there, but I am inlove with it. The geometry is perfect, and the components arent half bad.

    Oh sorry about the bad picture quality, its the best camera I have.

    nice mud vinny.

    just fyi, a mediocre bike with awesome components & good geometry for you, is better than a nice bike with mediocre components, and an off fit.

    Thanks for the support, both you and Cris. I am very happy with the bike and really like how it rides.

    I might keep that for XC and then go with a Transition Preston FR for AM and Free Ride. I would do this not because I have already grown tired of the Iron Horse (cant see me ever not liking the bike) but because it seems a little weak for the riding I am doing.

    The other day riding my tires were a bit wet, I was climbing over a pretty big rock (compact car sized?) and my tired slipped and I got a nasty dent in the DT of the frame. Do you think that many more incidents like this will break the frame? If it would then I dont want to ride this for AM because I want this bike to last for a year atleast.

    So keep riding the bike for AM and FR or upgrade to a Transition Preston FR, use the Iron Horse for XC and get rid of my XC hard tail. What do you guys think?

    I dont know if your iron horse can be considered an XC bike, but more of a trail bike.

    A burlier bike would suit you better if thats the riding you are doing. I hear transition is a nice rig. but I dont really know too much about burly AM or FR bikes. I like my AM's light. like 30lbs. a light AM bike shouldnt be taking too much damage to the tubing like that.

    The pic has 1024 x 1024 pix or smaller and under 390 kb, you can also try uploading the original to flickr or photobucket and insert it from there using the <img> tags.

    Sounds like a really nice Prophet!

    Ship me your bike and I'll take a picture and upload it for you.

    ... or maybe try saving the picture in a lower resolution. e.g. Microsoft Photo Editor -> Image -> Resize. Play with different percentages to get the file around 100k, so it retains some juicy detail.

    That is one weird ass bike . A santa cruz vp free with a manitou minute and an pore fitting shock .Thats a freeride frame built like an allmountain bike. That bike needs at least a 6 inch fork and a shock that actualy fits the frame. You had a 4 inches in the front 8 inches in the back double the travel. WHY?

    You are a freakin' retard! It is supposed to be an all-mountain bike. Yes it is a freeride frame but it also doubles as a DH rig as well as an XC rig too! As you see it, it sports an 8 inch eye to eye shock with a 2 inch stroke to give it a hair under 6 inches of travel not 8.5 to be exact! And the fork has 5 inches not 4! So 5 in the front with 6 in the rear makes for a pretty smooth AM bike fella. The geo with this set up follows the Nomad. I would set the bike up this way of XC riding and it performed very well just as it did for DH and FR.

    It rode very well! It was crisp when it came to climbing and smooth on the decents. Granted, due to the shortened shock the travel was already in it's "s" form but I couldn't tell any difference with the suspension, and at the end of a ride I was pleased! I orginally tried the frame with it's 8.5 ' of travel with a 5th gravity but I quickly found that 8.5 ' is waaay too much travel for xc riding. But once I slapped on a shorter travel shock the frame felt really nice on the climbs and over-all riding.

    Well Done.

    AM Commencal build

    Right-o, here's my am offering. Coming from a Prophet MX, i love the Commencal suspension to bits. Its 5" on paper, but it sticks to the ground like nothing and takes lots of effort to bottom out.
    Frame Size & Color: 06 Commencal meta 5 VIp
    * Fork: Fox 36 Talas RC2
    * Brakes: Shimano XT 8"
    * Cranks: Shimano XT
    * Front Derailleur: Deore w. MRP lrp chain device
    * Rear Derailleur: X7
    * Pedals: Azonic A-frame
    * Stem: Funn serial rippa
    * Handlebar: Azonic double wall
    * Seatpost: Easton
    * Saddle: SDG
    * Cassette: sram
    * Headset: FSA
    * Grips: Odi Ruffian
    * Tires: Azonic vigilante
    * Rims: D 3.1
    * Front Hub: Hugi FR
    * Rear Hub: Hugi FR
    * Weight: 15.7kg / about 34lbs

    Not the lightest of builds, but I like not being afraid about stuff breaking off.

    Nice bike dude. I put a Z1SL on my Reign 2 recently. Did your bike come with it, or did u swap something something out? One gripe would be that it's a little stiff, forces me to run very low pressures. Other than that I like it.

    Thanks, I agree w/ you on the fork, not the plushest ride out there. I run really low pressures too, but I have owned coil Marz forks before and they were similar. Much lower pressures were necessary than what was recommended. The bike would have come w/ a Fox Vanilla, but I swapped it out for the extra adjustments and travel. It didn't cost me anymore and I'm familiar w/ Marz stuff, so I figure I came out ahead.

    Marzocchi forks are notoriously known to be overfilled with oil so it may be worth letting a small bit of oil out. With my mx comps i literally run about 5 psi.

    man those Nicolai bear a striking resemblance to some Titus models, or is that just because I own one and compare it to everything else

    anyway, both are very nice!

    Dude -

    that is a sweet ass bike. I'm surprised steel doesn't dominate the hardtail market. I'm about to build up a Nashbar signature steel frame... very similar specs to yours. (Yours beats it on looks though)

    nice.

    Sorry this is one crazy post, I missed your post.

    Longer shock, I the original shock came with a 1.25 in travel this one came with 1.50 inches.
