    Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!

    Let's showcase all the new rigs purchased this season, new or used.

    Have you ridden it? Customized it yet?

    It's been rough with the smokepocalypse of November and then 50 of the last 100 days with rain.

    Let's see those rides.

    2019 Carbon Sentinel L. I guess I got the frame at the very end of 2018, then built it up with parts I had and a brand new fork. I like it better the more I ride it. Wasnít super stoked right away. Only thing different now is it has a 175mm fox transfer.

    A bit of a letdown for this thread, I'm sure, but I got it about a month ago... Only upgrade was immediate tire change to WTB Riddler 45C's. I am loving this thing, but I'm itching for good weather and conditions to get back on the Sentinel I bought last year...

    As the rain keeps pouring...let the gravel bikes pour in. If the weather was better, I probably would have waited, but a got a smoking deal on this bike 10 days ago. Did maiden ride up/down JNT and Skyline trail/road. And have since put in more miles on the Bay trail, Guadalupe and Coyote creek mixed gravel/pathed rides between rainfalls.

    Already building up 650b wheelset and bought a dropper post to be less sketchballs on singletrack. This baby clears 27.5 x 2.2"...But 700x35c mini-CX knobs held its own on singletrack.

    I bought a Knolly Fugitive LT from Fanatik in late November. I ended up pretty close to the Knolly Supreme Leader build despite selecting each part myself. I chose a mix of new to me parts based on reputation (BikeYoke Revive, WAO Agent, WolfTooth PowerTrac elliptical) and familiar parts that offered the convenience of using the same stuff on two bikes (Code RSC, Deity TMAC, DHF/Aggressor). It's a fun bike, I've been having a blast on it.

    Very nice! Iím still having fun on my DJ/trials bike.

    Anybody riding a DV9? Somebody must be since they sold out their entire inventory! I'm interested in one to round out the quiver.

    How 'bout an Intense Sniper Trail?

    Sold off the old Hightower and picked up a Tallboy for the summer. May add a Megatower if the budget allows.

    Technically picked it up late last year but it's a 2019. Possibly one of the first delivered. Fun bike and can easily be all purpose with road wheels.

    I got this Hightower late last year. This weather has really put a damper on me actually getting to use it.

    I just picked up this Medium PivotLes. I normally ride a small (Im 5'4) but since sizing and stem lengths have changed in the past 3-4 years.This fits perfectly with a 40mm stem. In the past I would have run a 90 or even 100mm stem on a cross country bike. Most mediums from a couple of years ago fit like a 2019 small..

    Funny, I had a similar experience with my Smuggler. As an old XC guy, the new geometry demands a revised cornering style, but when that clicked I was utterly in love. Especially on the Blue Lake steeps. All about learning to commit

    Same thing happened on my Process 111. God that bike was fun.

    2019 Trek Slash 9.7
    No upgrades other than tires/grips/saddle.

    It doesn't have fancy wheels or anything, the Guide r brakes took a while to get used to, and the damper in the Yari fork can't really keep up with the rest of the bike but besides that, this bike rips and I LOVE IT. The biggest surprise is how well it climbs for a 150/160 bike. Stoke is high.Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!-edit-3540.jpg

    'Offering' this one up

    Evil Offering for the 2nd-gen riding nut in our family (my son).
    Joining the big-wheeled mafia...replacing an Evil Insurgent (27.5 bike).

    built it ground up, as we do with all our bikes:
    - factory GRIP2 160mm in front (it's a 140mm rear bike)
    - DPX2 rear
    . X01 drivetrain w/ Sixc cranks / XT 4-pot brakes
    - revive 185mm dropper (just put one of those on my Ripmo too...and liking it)
    - tasty hoops from Dave at Speeddream - slate grey Kings on Ibis 942's
    - topped off with a ltd edition color Point One stem (I miss those guys...they made some killer stuff)

    How do you like the Smuggler for NorCal? Were you shopping any other bikes against the Smuggler when you bought it?

    It's pretty dialed for bay area riding where you only really need long travel for 3% (if that) of the ride. I was looking for mid travel 29ers, I demo'd Yeti, Niner, Whyte, Specialized & Santa Cruz.

    I told myself I wouldnít buy any bikes in 2019 . . . I made it to February. But in my defense, I sold my FS trail bike to make room, and kept the build cost neutral.

    My first singlespeed and first time cutting the fork steerer and setting the star-nut. Was nervous that Iíd mess up a really nice fork, but it was easy-peasy. Pretty stoked for this bike and canít wait to take it to Santa Cruz and stop by the pump tracks on the way home.

    SC chameleon, aluminum, 27.5
    SS, 32x22
    DVO sapphire fork at 130mm
    PNW bars and stem
    Shimano XT brakes (not the 4 piston, unfortunately)
    Bikeyoke Revive dropper
    Ibis 742 wheels/ i9 torch hubs
    Rekon 2.8 rear, DHF 2.5 front (weíll see how this tire experiment plays out)

    Have had it built up for a few weeks now, and it has yet to see dirt because of the rain. So here it sits, looking lonely hanging in the garage.

    Well, that was a little short lived... Posted earlier in here with my new Giant Revolt 0. I've had it for 1 month and logged 231 miles on it and pulled the wheels today to give it a proper full bath from all the wet rides.

    Found rubs in the inner chainstay from the tire. On the drive side, it's deep enough to have a tiny pinhole where it actually went completely through the frame.

    Got it all back together and have 4-5mm of clearance but I can easily flex the wheel by hand and get the tire to make contact with the frame. I've been really impressed with this wheelset until now. Running Riddler 45s and Giant claims clearance for 45mm tires.

    Not sure if Giant is going to help me or not, but that was pretty short lived....

    I've been riding one for a little over a year now, and have yet to feel undergunned. I just run a few more psi if things are getting big... I can't wait to take it to Downieville this year, it lives for fast chunder.

    Got it all back together and have 4-5mm of clearance but I can easily flex the wheel by hand and get the tire to make contact with the frame. I've been really impressed with this wheelset until now. Running Riddler 45s and Giant claims clearance for 45mm tires.

    Not sure if Giant is going to help me or not, but that was pretty short lived....

    Ah man, that sucks! I guess our norcal clay packs up nicely with lots of pebbles in the grout. Hope Giant take care of you....

    I'm in the process of building out my 27.5 wheelset for my gravel bike and am deciding between 2.0-2.2" tires. I tested with my buddie's Schwalbe Thunder Burts 2.1" and it had 5mm clearance on both sides of the chainstays and at least 1.5" to the seatpost/BB junction.

    I was leaning towards 2.2", but maybe should go 2.0" instead. Thunder Burts are nice, but it's expensive rubber!

    I have a wee-bike here that is 43 lbs. It's getting interesting. They slower you're going, the heavier they feel. Aka, lifting it to the roof or truck is danger.

    A couple months late in posting, but I got myself a combined Christmas & birthday present: 2018 Sentinel demo from Transition. I swapped a bunch of parts around off the stock X01 build with ones I prefer from my Nomad (Revive dropper, RF Next carbon bars & cranks, Magura MT5 brakes, X01 cassette). Sitting at around 30.5 lbs (medium) with pedals, which is actually about 1/2 lb heavier than my coil Nomad.

    PS: Nomad is available in the local sale thread here. Someone should buy it so I can upgrade my Sentinel to carbon wheels and GRIP2.

    I love this bike more every time I ride it. Never once have I felt like it's too big, even going up those switchbacks to the Mile in the photo above.

    Only a couple weeks old. Got it to AZ though. Dam this thing rips!
    So my dog is also less than a yr old, sort of a late 2018 model. He loved AZ too.

    If your interested, I can ask my friend.
    However, if you head over the gravel forum, you will see that many have long lead times quoted for their Revolt orders. This typically means that it will be a long time before the manufacturer offers frame only options.

    Definitely interested as I'm liking the compact frame and would be very interested in a frame only option. But if there's long lead times for the full bikes, I can see how a frameset may be a while...

    If you're looking to build out a carbon gravel bike with your own parts check out the Carbonda thread on the Riding Gravel forum.

    In general I found availability of new gravel bikes this winter here in Norcal has very limited. With all the rain it's been prime gravel season since November, but the rest of the country, gravel season is probably just start up.

    Those are some nice bikes! Congrats to everyone that scored.

    Jeni picked up 2 new bikes. She got the Fezzari Wire Peak Pro for riding with me, riding during our "overlanding" trips, and for training. So far she's loving it except today the dropper lever on the X-Fusion Manic stopped working.
    Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!-p1x8wpy.jpg

    CaptainCobb helped me build up her other new bike but I had to order a seat post shim and a longer cable for the rear Code RSC brake. She swapped everything except the shock from her Wreckoning. I can't post that bike until she does so sorry no pics.

    I'm selling my Evil The Calling while I review the Wire Peak Elite. I'm just not riding the Evil enough to warrant keeping it. I love the bike though.

    Picked up a '19 Giant Trance 29er in January. Went from an '01 26er FSR Enduro to this and am loving the new technology of 29" wheels, tubeless setup, and dropper post. Coming from a 26er, I was worried about the wagon wheels, but bought the bike to do xc rides and races, a couple super D or enduro races each season, and might try an endurance race. A hardtail is good enough for most of the trails close to home, but a couple hours away get some very rocky trails. This is like a xc bike that doesn't have to slow down for rock sections or downhills. I don't think it's a bike I'd choose to focus on winning any one of those singular disciples, but so far it seems like a great bike for a 1-bike quiver to enjoy various rides and any terrain. (Second thought, the right Super D course could play to its strengths extremely well.) It feels very responsive for the wheelsize, climbs great and jumps fine, so am happy with it.

    2nd ride out on it:

    Just built up an RSD Middlechild and went for my first ride.

    Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!-dsc01621-3-.jpg

    Build:
    RSD Middlechild frame
    Nextie 29" x 34mm internal rims with Bitex hubs
    Maxxis DHF front Aggressor rear, 2.5"
    Rockshox Pike fork, 29" x 150mm
    Fox Transfer dropper

    The whole build was a transfer of parts from my FS trail bike.

    The impetuous for this build was that I preferred riding my XC hardtail for most of my day-to-day riding, because I like the simplicity and the efficient climbing. But I disliked the steep head tube, 32 mm fork, and lack of tire clearance when heading downhill. So I decided to try out an AM steel frame.

    Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!-dsc01669-3-.jpg

    First impressions are that this frame has hit the mark. It climbs great (although it's certainly heavier than my XC bike), the frame is nice and stiff, and the geometry is great going downhills. Jumps and drops are no problem, and rocks seem to be fine too. On flatter trails, the slack head angle (64 deg. w/150mm fork) is taking some time to get used to. Unfortunately, we don't have many flat trail around here (all steep up or down), so this isn't much of a concern. I still have my XC hardtail in case I don't get used to this. But on steeper downs, with the fork a bit more compressed, the geometry is perfect.

    No, the bike didn't come up a bit too short on a step-up.

    My "new" bike for 2019. I needed to replace my old fork and that meant a new frame so I could use a tapered steerer. I swapped everything else over

    Brand-X HT01 with Works angleset
    Mattoc @140mm
    65.5į HA static, 66.8į sagged
    74į STA static, 75.2į sagged

    Show us your 2019 bike that you just acquired!!-img_20190410_191329295.jpg

    The whole front end is so much stiffer than my old Inbred w/ 1-1/8 Minute. I love the line holding power, braking feel and confidence from that!

    My overforked Inbred had a STA of about 70į. This new frame feels like an e-bike when climbing because of the huge difference in saddle position

    Unfortunately I lost a lot of fitness and core strength last year so a hardtail that can be pushed harder is really giving me a tough workout!

    No, the bike didn't come up a bit too short on a step-up.

    Oops, this is a Norcal thread *quietly exits*
    Haven't seen one of those around here. Would be interested to ride one. What's the wait time like for a frame?

    Well that bike didnít last long. Was making some concerning noises from the BB area the other day, and I think I found the problem. (Itís not just paint peeling, itís obvious damage when looking at it with a flashlight)

    How often do you check the torque? My HTLT wasn't even close from the factory, on every bearing and the BB. Loctite 242.

    I took my whole bike apart and torqued them to spec when it was new. When I took this bolt out just now it seemed plenty tight. I work on my bike frequently, so stuff usually does't go unmaintained like a lot of people who just ride it until something breaks.

    Yeah, I guess sometimes you just get a bad batch. As an aside, one thing I noticed is my beam torque wrenches are FAR more accurate than the clicker types. The failure tolerances on these bearings are probably greater than the accuracy discrepancy, but I pretty much only use the beam wrenches now.

    I just found this late last night. Iím letting my local bike shop handle the warranty because I have a good relationship with them and trust that they can take care of it in a timely manner.

    But I would have loved to file a complaint with some Transition employees at Sea Otter, too bad they arenít there.

    Glad it's covered! The first thing that came to mind was "epoxy that shit up ASAP!"

    Can you put a protector in that region? Like gorilla tape or something? I would NOT recommend epoxy because, if it fails again, you don't want Giant thinking it's your fault.

    Literally just got it a couple of hours ago! Long story, second bike I've bought from the same guy in SoCal. He's like I am (meaning he likes having high end bikes) just with more financial resources. So I buy his castaways...like this.

    Nah, cromoly. Ti is way too expensive and difficult to work with for a 1st frame. Not sure I could do ti after 100 but maybe one day I'll give it a try.
