Pretty nice, what's the bike weigh in total? Considering the ultra light frame.

I dont have an exact figure to give you, mainly because I dont really know how I would weigh it. All i can say is it's pretty light. If you can tell me how to weigh it i would come back with a number.

Actually Porsche have designed and do sell an official porsche roofrack for all 911s, and it is on sale in the driver selection catalogue, so its not some stupid aftermarket idea, it can be done properly!

My Surly1x1 at the farm

running a 2.5 Specialized Pin'it Pro up front, and a Specialized endoro 2.2 (for the moment) in the back. Truvativ Husselfelt crankset, novatec SS cassette hub, and some old watersnake bottle cages


Took my wife to the LBS to buy a bike. They had none in her size except a Scapel. So she is going to wait for some more bikes to get built. I wound up leaving with this Specialized Stumpy FSR expert ex test bike

Latest homebuild. Nashbar Steel ATB Frame ($44.95!) and spare parts from about 3 bikes--a Frankenbike! I'm only missing the FD since all the ones I have are 31.8 and I need 28.6. I've got a Tourney 28.6 on the way (it's only a FD so I'm not worried about it being Tourney). I'm going to repaint the fork to Red, Yellow, Black and White--since they're all precious in His sight.

Heya... I'm a wee bit new to the mountain biking thing, but I just picked up my '06 Stumpy disc. Still has its factory reflectors and everything... couldn't wait to take it out for some fun.

With a bit of dirt:

If you are indeed "a wee bit new to the mountain biking thing", you definately went all out for a newbie. That's a decent rig for XC.

Good job!

BTW, here's the pic so peep's don't have to clicky:

Not entry level, no... but I'm a pretty avid biker, and figured I'd budget for the bike that really felt right. I tried out the Rockhopper (which I liked very much, esp. for the $$), the Epic and the FSRxc. For the amount of kit and the riding I plan on doing, the Stumpy seemed like the right bet. I had originally budgeted $800, but after riding the Rockhopper and Stumpjumper back to back for a bit, the Stumpy was the one that begged to go to home with me. It's probably a little over my head, but from the discussion on here it should be a good bike for me to grow with.

An S-works would have killed my ability to eat and pay car insurance... hmmmm.... Like, for example, the S-works Stumpjumper FSR Carbon that's oh... what, $7000?? Hahahaha. I wish my pockets were that deep.

I can obscure my plate... I've never worried much about such things. But it may be a worthwhile thing, so I'll update.

Yes, and there's a member here with a rack equipped Porsche who I'm sure would agree.

Wow, that bike looks ten times better than it used to.
Is that a matching pair of tires I see? and are those new brakes Kona?

Brakes are fairly new, tires are new, not the same tires, the Front is a diesel, rear a gravity, the dirt is a few days old. Just waiting for a Thomson seat post now.
