    New Sunline stem, and a slimmer seat. Trimmed the fork steer tube a touch. All dialed in nice and happy. Somewhere between 32-33#, with 2.6" tires, the rear being a full extra pound of DH tire.


    Ditching the chainguide, swapping a regular seatpost on, going to a Lyrik Solo Air vs. the Totem Solo Air, smaller/lighter pedals, and lighter tires would easily have me in the high twenties for weight, but I'm not willing to sacrifice those particular parts just to lose some weight.

    Hopefully not over the Pitch. It's not even as decked out/light as it could be, if I really wanted to throw more money at the thing.

    I can get you a Depends hook up. Let me know.

    Damn, Oleanshobox's B-52 looks like a whole lot of fun.

    It is. Took it out on Friday. The Kinetics leave a bit to be desired but other than that I am waaaay happy.

    C'mon dood...the Pitch is the Shizzle! Loving it...midget Totem and all.

    I don't get as excited over the "cookie cutter" bikes that people build. I've seen too many Nomads, hahaha.

    Maybe that's why I ride a red-headed step-child, teehee.

    A ninties Trek 800 Sport, a heavy, solid frame with upgraded Deore components. It's been an excellent commuter bike so far, but I don;t think it'll take the abuse of off-roading.

    My first mountain bike. I never had one during the mountain craze in the 90's, and only came into this one by default (was going to pull my pedicab trailer, until it was logically deemed an improper use). So I built it up using spares lying around the shop I work at. I honestly don't know the first thing about mountain bike tech, so sometimes I feel at a loss, but I'm a quick learner. I bugged out of work early today and hit up some local trails, and holy **** I don't think I've ever had as much fun on a bike! I did about 6 miles of (what I think is) super rocky single track this afternoon before the sun set and I probably smiled the whole time.

    The pictures:



    It's a 2002 or so KHS Team ST, with a mix of parts, admittedly mostly low end. But I didn't feel like dropping any real money on a bike I wasn't sure I would even like, and will undoubtedly smash the hell out of while I figure out what I'm doing. But I do have some good parts on the way: a SID XC Dual Air fork came in the shop today in a "donation box," and I snagged an XT front derailer off of criagslist today.

    I'm pretty sure the bike was designed for a rigid fork (not positive) but the fork appears to give it that angle, or enhance it.

    Hey people
    I ve benn lurking for a while, and I just bought a "new" bike so here's my first post

    I wanted a Bianchi for sometime now and I finally got a sweet deal on a second hand one.
    Not sure of the year but its in really good condition minus a few rusty screws which are easy to work on.







    I set it up with some roadish tires as I use it mainly in the city

    Best bike I ever owned

    If you don't mind...can you post up a build list? I'm intrigued.

    Mainly in your tire size, blades, bars (brand/sweep/rise)

    Looks good

    not in this forum. As long as it is a solid bike we don't fuss about brand names.
