Next time, you can simply enclose the URL pointing to the image within [IMG] tags and it will get embedded into the post.

Since the image itself is not stored on the BikeForums server but is simply a referral pointer to somewhere else, there are no size limitations.

I've got a Trek 6700 WSD (01' I think, and I guess Woman's Specific Design aint to specific, beacause it fit me a guy, better than the regular)

Upgrades:
Handbuild Shimano XT Disk hubs, with Rhynolite XL
Avid Mech 203mm
Ritchey Clipless Pedals
THE Front fender, (would have got the rear, but I've got a pack)
Sram Hollow Pin Chain, (PC-99 or whatever)
Then of course new tires, and gears and parts like that

I know, I know, shoulda saved my money and bought a nicer bike instead of upgrading the 6700.

Why does it only have front disc brakes? I'd rather have them in the back. But okay.

Otherwise nice ride. I think that the fork is good but if you wanted to upgrade and you got the money then go ahead.

The reason it has a front disc brake is so that you can get more power when stoping than if you had the disc on the back.

I ride mainly Happy Valley, 80 Acres (yes on hard tail). Port Noarlunga is another favorite. I also like to ride most of the Adelaide Mountain Bike club tracks about the place (Fox Creek etc)
Never ridden in waterfall gully, is there many trails about that area? Its only a 1/2 hour drive from me to get there.

Hey monolith, I ride with those guys too, there are two DH track and a bit further up is a place with a couple of road gaps (6ft-15ft) and some small jumps. The DH tracks are sick, even Grant Allen has been known to ride at least one of them.

However you need to go with someone, because you won't be able to find the tracks on your own.

Well that's my pride and joy. A good portion of the stock parts (read the entire drivetrain minus the front derailieur) went towards upgrading my commuter bike, which is listed over in the commuter section.

Quite a change from how I originally got it.

Here's my bikes. I can't afford a digital camera as all my $$ goes to bike swag, so I got the pics from the RM web site. The Switch is stock except I put a Blackspire Dewlie guide/gaurd on it and the Slayer got a new WTB saddle and a RaceFace bashgaurd.
