    Nice rides everyone. Rich, the Specialized red is hot. Capun_Canuck how do you like your Dawg?

    I'm picking up a digicam this weekend so I'll post pics of the nine bikes we've got in our apartment (soon to be ten with the addition of a beater-fixed gear).

    Yeah its the international edition. Does international edition mean its not avaliable in the US? or does it just have slightly different parts?

    upgraded parts all around.

    For example, the US/CDN version of the pro has an LX rear derailer, mine INTL version has an XT. It just seems to be one level up on each one. Your bike is probably the exact same as a US/CDN Pro version would be.

    I think the Comp Disc only comes as an International version.

    for '05 there is a comp disc for usa/canada, it's only a mechanical disk though. Are yours mechanical or hydraulic?

    Sorry, mines an 04, so its hydraulic. For 2004 there was only an International version of the Comp Disc, at least thats what i gathered from the specialized website.

    nice hardline. i would have got the red if i had bought mine new....
    it looks mostly like this, without the stupid bashguard, and with the rigid fork, new tires, and other random things.

    My turn! My Turn!

    Great thread whoever started this. So much fun to see everyone else's rides. Here are mine:

    Trek 5200 OCLV - It was my winter project. Bought the frame and built it up exactly how I wanted it. Super fast, super fun!


    Cannondale Prophet - as seen on pinkbike.com. Set up in 4x mode right now, but it'll be my XC ride for me this year.


    Jamis XLT 2.0


    Giant OCR2 - Last year's rode bike and now my indoor I-Magic Training rig. Put lots of KMs on this bad boy last year but decided I wanted to go all out for 2005 with the carbon Trek. An amazing bike though. I think someone else here mentioned they were getting one, you won't be disappointed.


    There's also the old Raleigh winter beater and my unicycle, but they're both buried in the shed right now My wife says I have too many bikes. You think? Nahhhh.

    Well you see my ht use to be a second bike that I would ride everywhere but now I have a third bike... I can't help it if I got a good price for the fork when I was building my ht back up again after I took all of my components off it to build my sugar...It's life...

    Both our HT's...aka grocery getters...Were built with the components off our Sugar's as we upgraded the Sugar's...This way we had half-decent HT's to use as back-ups for the Sugar's...

    The thing to remember is that most of the stuff on those two bikes are 3-4 years old...The only new stuff is brake pads, chains, cassettes and chainrings...

    That's the nice thing about having two bikes...you can always re-use parts or at worst steal parts from one bike to another...

    thnx dude... it's the xp pro with 5th air... picked it up at supergo when they had it on sale for $329
    I hear ya though... I haven't seen one 'round here either..should be pretty stanky when built up.. it's her first fully, and @ the price we got it for....just couldn't say NO.
    the quality of welds and detail (ie. paint) is pretty impressive, especially @ that price point...
    I'll be putting some hrs into is this weekend..should have it built up next week

    What year is that Epic frame? It is missing the seatube support triangle piece. I thought only the women's fram 2003 was missing that little extra piece.

    Am I wrong?

    I sure hope you're wrong or I'd be rather pissed at my bike store... anyway it's an '03 which only seemed to have the seat tube support on the large frames. And the Pro/Marathon models, plus the womens only seemed to come in some horrible canberry color.

    Yeah... You are right. I think maybe only the Mediums and larger had the seat tube support.

    revrnd - you're a man after my own liking. A simple, no-nonsense, "this will do just fine, thanks" FS bike that's not too hard on the wallet and still good enough to have loads of fun. Very nice.

    TT - oh, single speed. That should make for a very nice ripper for riding.

    Good job!

    [QUOTE=AndrewTO]revrnd - you're a man after my own liking. A simple, no-nonsense, "this will do just fine, thanks" FS bike that's not too hard on the wallet and still good enough to have loads of fun. Very nice.[QUOTE]

    Thanks Andrew When I bought it I figured I'd just be riding w/ my nephew. Turns out I've really gotten into the riding. Maybe down the road if I need a new bike I'll splurge on myself. If I had dropped some coin like the guys @ work figured, I probably would've hated it & would be trying to unload it.

    So lets see your rides... chances are I may actually seen some of you guys at races and other events.

    I doubt you'll ever see us at a race, but here are our rides.

    The bikes weigh in at about 26 lbs, as you see them. Mine is just under and my wifes is just over 26 lbs. She didn't like the Terry Liberator TI Race seat and insisted that I put the old seat back on. It's more comfortable, but heavier.

    If we were to strip off the un-race-like accessories - bells, taillights, bicycle computers, fenders, and bouncy seatposts, we could bring the weight down closer to 24 lbs. However, we are pretty happy with the bikes the way they are.

    Here's mine. Unnamed, but I bought the Stumpy with every last cent I had when I was 16, and she/he (bikes don't have a gender, do they?) has moved with me from Regina to Calgary to Quebec City to Waterloo...

    <img src="http://www.exoticcarforums.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=14341&stc=1" border="0" width="50%" height="50%" alt="">

    Looking not too bad after 2 years of Sask Sunlight Cup racing, two years of 15k/day commuting and a lot of riding. I'm never getting rid of this bike ever, but I might get something dual-suspension with next year's tax refund...

    Here's mine. It has a Rohloff Speedhub on it now. It's a 2004.

    You need a 6" fork on that bike - with a 5", I had to change the rear travel to make the bike "balanced". It rides perfect with a 6" and the Rohloff.

    Alright, this thread is getting waaaay too far down the line.

    The last time you'll see these forks, brakes and wheels on the bike. Next up is the Minute 1:00, Avid mechs and Mavic/XT wheels. With a little luck they'll all be on this weekend.... I hope.

    Vector Mechanics with Prof. Negi is always fun. At least when I was there.

    Here's my new ride, I'm still doing shakedown rides on the setup. And I'm waiting for some Hope Mono4's.

    Here's my Intense 5.5 trail bike. A custom build by Owen and Terry at Trail Blazer Cycles. 400km's strong and loving it. They're currently finishing up an Uzzi for the bigger stuff and some light DH duties.

    The second shot is of my new bike security system. You can't be too safe in Toronto, the bike theft capital of Canada.

    My new ride

    Here is my 2005 NRS.

    It is an upgrade i bought after my Rainier frame cracked.
    (see threads: https://forums.mtbr.com/giant/post-i-am-sad-make-re-crack-122589.html https://forums.mtbr.com/giant/warranty-updade-nrs-here-133800.html)

    All the parts are from the 2002 Rainier.

    Zac 19/Deore wheels
    LX mechs.
    HMX-1 Brakes
    Marz. EXR Air 80mm...

    Nice upgrade there... bet you're loving the ride. Definite upgrade from the rainier. Just swap the wheels and youll have a pimp ride.


    I left my camera at home so no pics of my new SL yet.

    The NRS is pretty much my dream bike, and i am happy to have it. Pretty much the same geometry as the Rainier, and all the components, so it has that feel that i am used to, but is more comfortable (squish ) and much better downhill.

    I will agree that the wheelset is relatively poor. Front rim was "bend beyond repair" -LBS but it was infact straightened, and i still ride it. Have broken a spoke, overhauled both hubs (rear needed new cones and bearings), changed tires front and rear, and now the freehub is sounding/feeling like it is toast. On top of that, they are not light. Most of that stuff is normal maintenance though. I would like new wheels, but a decent set is very expensive, especially after the bill to get this baby. So i am gunna get the freehub taken care of and just deal with it.

    They actually don't bother me much.

    As for the componentry in general, i feel that it is very well suited to my level of riding. The stuff that falls around the deore/LX level performs very well. Great balance between cost and performance. To have full XT level stuff would be overkill for me.

    Now, lets see that SL of yours all built up. Should be pretty nice. I will wait for it.

    I like that - Magic Carpet. Nice way to put it.

    I'm getting a....... NAH! I can't do THAT! Where's the suspense? The drama?

    Don't worry, i'll blab all about it when I get it (like I wouldn't???). I hope my buddy in Buffalo can help me once more with shipping.

    Just look for the "I have pneumonia after my first winter ride" thread.

    I never realized just how jacked up that k2 is untill seeing that picture. Its like a bicycle monster truck with a suspension lift kit. Are you going to put you cow bar on the new bike?

    Yeah, the BB height on the K2 is over 14". "What logs???"

    Cow bar - that was one of my "technical difficulties" yesterday. I originaly DID have the Mary bar on it, bit it didn't feel right. I don't know why and it's actually bugging me immensly! I can only suspect that this frame fits me better than the K2 and it's somehow changing .... okay, I don't know wtf is going on. It just didn't feel the same as on the K2.

    Congrats on your new ride. It should be totally opposite of your K2. With the Cane Creek rear I expect it bobs like Paris Hilton on a woody!

    If you mean the Cane Creek on the rear of the K2 then yes, Paris was on my woody! Gotta get a Swinger for that K2 next year.

    Yes, of course I meant the K2. The Swinger will help it somewhat, but not as much as you would think. These older designs are obsolete, as much as we love some of our old bikes and hate to accept that. I put a Fox Float RP3 Pro Pedal on the back of an older Devinci URT and although it was much improved over the CC AD10 I had, it still will not come close in matching the performance of the newer designs like Horst LinK or MacStrut. From my own experience I would suggest a shock that has some pedal damping plus a lock out. The 2004 Fox Float RL with Pro Pedal would be a great choice for the K2. Watch ebay or Mtbreview classifieds over the winter and you could likely pick up a good one for a nice price.

    Look at the top tubes

    Cow bar - that was one of my "technical difficulties" yesterday. I originaly DID have the Mary bar on it, bit it didn't feel right. I don't know why and it's actually bugging me immensly! I can only suspect that this frame fits me better than the K2 and it's somehow changing .... okay, I don't know wtf is going on. It just didn't feel the same as on the K2.
    It could be the picture but it looks like the top tube on the K2 is longer. That would explain why the bar feels odd on the NRS. Maybe try a monkey light low rise on the Giant.

    ^^^ I thought I saw that bike before. Last summer I rode with you on number of TBN rides.

    This is my bike: 50+ pounds of STEEL! It's bloody unstoppable, and by that I mean those U-breaks there are only for show. This machine sports top-of-the-line Falcon Indexing System and other parts I cannibalized from bikes people throw away. After 8 years and 2 head-on collisions with cars it's still going strong.


    Actually this is my bike. Regular 2005 Specialized Rockhopper. Need to swap few parts and I'll be ready when the warm weather comes.

    I cracked my old frame and had it replaced.

    Black or red was the options so I went with black



    Just waiting on new hydro brake lines since my new fork has more travel now too as in the pic you can see its damn short.

    Damn, there's been some nice bike's getting posted here lately!

    Here's my latest acquisition. 2001 Mountain Cycles San Andreas. Not done, but very well "roughed-in". Gotta do more dialing in, but geez, BIG! I found it on Pink Bike, local guy, too. I saw it and HAD to have it. Ever since I saw the first one back in the early '90's I told myself "one day". "One day" was a few weeks ago. Had about an hour's worth of on- and off-road riding (no neighbours lawn's this time). I like it.

    Hey, JM, remember this? You posted about a work buddy riding one in one day last year. THIS is what they look like when they're not painted Rasta!

    Here's mine...

    '97 Klein Attitude Comp....upgraded a few things....well, most things. Still lookin to pick up a fork, handlebars, crank and seat. I'm thinkin FoxF80RLT, or a SiD Race fork, Easton EA70 bars (read too many negative reviews on carbon handlebars), XTR or FSA crank and a Selle Italia seat... any suggestions???

    One of the forks you meantioned would be better then what you have on there now.
    I use an Easton monkey lite carbon bar on my bike and never had any issues with it yet plus the warrenty on them is great too. The wheelset I have has bad reviews here but they been great for me. with only 1 minor truing job done to them (I trued them myself)

    Upgrades

    Ya, the Judy XC's are a little outdated but they still work...so that'll probably be my last upgrade. As for the handlebars, I weigh about 195lbs, so I figured the Monkeylite SL's and XC's (which place a large emphasis on reduced weight) may not be strong enough for me. I've gone through one rear wheel but only becase some moron that worked for the city decided to put an industrial garbage can on it....ripped the spokes rught out of the hub... the whole wheel was a right off. Luckily the LBS had one waiting for me...exact same build

    With the SL's you prob would feel some noticable flex but the XC's should be fine. Of course you can always go to the DH version and have no worries there.
    I would consider the new fork route though. The fox would be stiffer and the sid more racey, maybe a lil flexier then the Judy. My cousin's judy works good but theres no comparison to my friends Fox fork. Marz marathon would be good too.

    I'm definately leaning towards a...

    Fox fork. I've tested one out a few times and the rigidity/plushness is incredible. I'll keep your suggestions in mind... thanks!!

    HAHAHAHAA!!! No, no offense taken dude. I'm 6'4" and alllllll leg (36" inseam ). My Filte seats are always "flyin' high".

    Actually, it's a combo of the long legs and the NRS "only" being the 20" frame and not the 22". My San Andreas is a little more of a "relaxed" bike, so the seat isn't quite as sky-scraperish, just a "tall high-rise". It's been lowered a little bit since that pic .... although the rest of the bike has gotten taller. Like I tell people before I meet them for the first time - just look for the tall, skinny coat rack - that's me!


    Prod - I was slouching and never got out of my car. How's that LS working out for ya, anyways?

    Thanks! Yeah, it's a really nice bike. My first outside of shitty Walmart bikes. Learned my lesson last year when I bought one and it was totalled within the first 2 months.

    I'm anxious to go out to the slimes (Built a nice dirt jumping area) and test it out on some of the jumps/drops. Hopefully I can get some pictures of the place for you guys sometime.

    Very fair question. Believe me it was not an easy decision. I was able to save $300Can by buying the obviously less popular colour.

    So...I chose to save 300$ and ride around with a freakishly ugly fork. At the end of the day we ride our bikes not dress them up pretty - it still hurts my eyes though. It might even glow in the dark at 24 hour races - that would cool.

    At least we can agree it's fugly. Guess what, if it was a difference of $300, i would probably have done the same.

    Not sure of her weight, but she is pretty light. Prob around 22 with the twisters and superlight tubes on. I could get her down more with a seatpost, stem and seat swap but I bent superlight post before. Cheers

    Here's my new toy. Intense 6.6 All Mountain fun bike.

    Huge props to Andrew and Roger at Cycle Solutions for building up my dream bike. Climbs like a XC hardtail and descends like a DH sled.

    My first bike!

    Okay, just for fun, I'll post mine, too. It's my first bike. Built for me for my birthday - how nice is that. It's sort of temporary, since most of the parts are from here and there. Next year, when I'm better, I'll invest in something more that suits me better. But until then, what I've got is brilliant.

    Smile Giant XTC

    Here is my new ride! 14 inch Giant XTC, RockShox Duke XC (just for now...I have a SID I'll be racing next summer), SRAM X.7, Race Face Ride XC 22/32/44T, Avid Single Digit 5, SRAM PG 950 11-34T, 9-speed, Shimano PD-M520.....yah....I think we're replacing my cassette with a PG970 and the Easton EA50 handlebar something lighter and more cutdown. And I'm definitely replacing the Hutchinson pythons for something with better grip!! But sweeeeet!! I love it. I named it, too, hahaha: Bretty. (After my doggie and best buddy - who died midlife last year from Leukemia). He was a fearless, do-it-my-way, Saint Bernard who fought till the end. Anyways, here it is:
