    Hmmm. I've seen pics of your bike, are you sure that's right? seem like it would weigh less.

    Keep in mind, its originally a 650$ bike. Super low end crankset (and that bashguard is .5 pounds), heavy cassette, X5, plus on things like tubes, I dont pay attention at all (I'm running 2.3-2.5 tubes because thats what was cheap). All those little things that add up, I dont really pay attention to.

    I know it's no big deal to most of the MTB's on this list but since I'm coming from a Wally-Mart Roadmaster Mnt. Sport SX MTB-clone, to me it's a HUGE deal! Below is a link to a photo of my new 09 Jamis Trail-X 3.0

    Just got it on Feb. 24, 09 and man is it FUN!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    Here's my old Kona.

    The frame is stripped and up on the wall for the last year now.

    Still riding those cranks tho.

    Damn that was a hot bike. I had some bar ends and a flat bar around for those times when I had to really kick some ass:



    By the way... that was the fork that used to look like this (long):




    But I did some surgery on it:



    And to all of you who thought I was going to kill myself on my modified fork; it worked very well and I believe there is a guy still riding that thing to this day.

    So there!

    How did you get that fork so fast? I get the impression the old fork just broke.

    Impressive. Your shops must be way better stocked than ours (although, probably 95% of their business is road bike related). None of the shops around here (other than performance) stock very many MTB parts.

    Just finished rebuilding my bike... new drivetrain, wheels, accessories, etc... and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. Everything feels so smooth, is very quiet, and will hopefully last longer than the low end parts is used to have (not that anything now on it is especially high quality).





    More of an XC setup, but I hope to do some trail riding as well (and have done a little on this frame already). Next up for replacement is fork+frame+brakes, got a rockshox Recon air fork in the mail (got it for less than half price ) and I'll be looking for a decent hardtail frame which has disk brake mounts sometime this spring/summer.

    Now that i think about, he couldnt have had any brakes working either.
    Nothing safer than no bars, no brakes on a freewheeled bike.

    6-8" of fresh snow on top of our just barely dry trails led me to some weight weenie pics. Give or take a half pound I figure with the crappy hanging scale. These are in their "daily driver" states.

    25# Steel frame, Pike dual air, XC tires


    27# Ti frame, Lyric Solo Air @ 150mm, DH tire in back.


    33# 6" Pitch frame, Totem Solo Air @ 160mm, DH tire in back.

    I know the hole looks freshly dug, but it was there last week. Looks like a coyote digging for gophers-I would guess.
