    finished my 01 Homegrown rebuild... better than new!

    My big box of parts had been filling up for the better part of last year, and I finally acquired all the ingredients for my Homegrown rebuild. I bought this bike at age 13 and learned to love mountain biking on it- now its better than new

    I feel like the Reba is a perfect replacement for the Judy Race, which I thought was smooth and plush but didn't track well and sucked on climbs. Now the Reba's got the lockout and 32mm sanctions so I can't wait to try 'er out! Obviously getting an xt-level crankset for $50 was awesome... I should also note this is my first bike with either disc brakes or clipless.... so the ride (crash?!?) reports will surely ensue. The IRC tires go on all my bikes- they are the best all around if weight isn't a huge issue. The pics tell all:

    2006 Reba SL (100mm dual air w/ spring assist) with remote ($280)
    FSA Afterburner Megaexo cranks ($50!)
    Time ATAC Alium clipless pedals
    IRC Trailbear tires.... heavier but well worth it!
    Bianchi alloy seatpost with Selle Italia Flite saddle
    new XT integrated shifters and 2-piston disc brakes
    new cables and housing all around
    mavic 317 disc hubs triple laced to xt centerloc hubs
    Performance brand carbon bars (nice, actually)
    new SRAM chain
    I'm keeping my trusty old cassette, m952 rear mech and lx front... dammit!
