    Gastro, Maelstrom, Raiyn, LowCel, and all others...

    here are some photos of my mountain bike that i was working on over the summer. i appreciate the advice from everyone on this forum. i have learned a lot since joining in may. i am proud to say i have been converted to a mountain bike expert since then

    hope you like it!!
    brian






    here is the rear disc adapter i purchased. it seems like a sound set-up. i will have to let you guys know if i encounter any problems with it. i could certainly see why some of you 6+/200+lbs guys would be leery







    can you make out the X-Ray Grip shift? when did they stop making those?

    Looking good, I want your brakes.

    That brake adaptor looks like a weird version of a floating brake system.

    Cool bike. What was the total cost, and how much does it weigh?

    i would almost trust that set up for a rear brake more...looks alot more beefy and since it utilizes the axle...probably stronger although its probably heavier

    wow! that looks great!

    I might as well ask now for the build specs...

    3 questions:

    1) Did you have any fitment issues with the Woodman Disco?

    2) What hubs are you running?

    3) and most importantly, how does it ride?

    i will have to get back to you on that. i am afraid to tally up the price, but i have been wanting to. how do you guys usually weigh bikes. just the "animal" method on your home scales?

    3) and most importantly, how does it ride?
    thanks!

    1) yes. i did have to use a dremel tool. i was VERY proud of my dremel "machining" skills. (another skill to add to my list of skills...dremel skills )

    i spoke with the guy from WOOdman, who was very nice, and he just said that sometimes people do have "doctor" it up a bit. he just said that they wouldn't be able to make it fit EVERY frame out there...understandable.

    2)well...you have to use the WOOdman hub as a complement to the brake system. and since i like uniformity, i chose a WOOdman front hub as well. they are okay...probably comparable to XT hubs or so. they are cartridge bearings and not cone for what it is worth. i am happy with them. however, i don't have the experience to compare with other ones.

    i am using DT spokes...supercomp i think. the ones with 3 different diameters. i believe 2 at the hub to 1.7 to 1.8 at the nipple. i am also using DT brass nipples with the pre locking compound inside. i don't know what you guys think of those DT products....

    3)it rides great! i will have to update you all as i get more ride time on it. i just recently found trails so i will be getting more time on it now.

    the front end feels VERY light. i don't know if it is too light or not but it raises its front pretty easily.

    is the seat that bad? it is a selle san marco integra or something. back then i think it was expensive. has seat tech changed that much?

    what do you guys suggest for my next seat?

    Some people think it's ugly, personally I would go for comfort over looks.

    i don't think it was meant for comfort. when i got the bike in 1995 i think it was supposed to be a high end seat. it is railless. the seat rails are built into the shell. i like that other one posted! but i figure i would wait till this one gets ripped or something. i do want a thomson seat post though. the seat post on it is made by Control Tech?? remember them?

    Yep, it's got a machined rib running up the center of the post. It's worth keeping even if you let these guys talk you into a new seat...

    i would go for comfort and looks. selle italia seats are not that bad, they might look like they wouldnt be all that comfortable.
