    Soma Groove frame, with rigid Soma fork, outfitted with Shimano XT= $1430.00 Then I replaced the saddle with a very old Brooks B-62 and paid $10.70 for a new seatpost. But the Brooks Saddle came of a very old Ralegh that I bought for $20.00 and sold on Craigslist for $35.00, so the total price I'd say was $1430.00

    My latest Bike, a HARO X2 was $940. Add the upgrades I already had, and it's value is now about $1300.

    That includes Hayes DH hydraulic disc brakes (8"), Clipless pedals, a race seat, along with Sun's Rhino Lite rims, and tire upgrades.... Not to mention the air assist pre-load on my 'zocchi Pro forks.

    I probably have the most expensive hardtail here as of today. Ordered a king steel set today for $130 and ordered a Thomson Seat post for $80. Was at $4,500 before those, now I am up to $4,710. Then there is my Stab Primo, which is 2,400 and is still just frame, fork, headset.

    Too Much that's for sure!

    Just in the last year, I've spent close to $3,000 on parts for my various bikes. Figure another $1,000 on supplies and clothing.

    Purchasesin the last year include a new cassette, new chain, new cables/housing, new brake pads, new pedals (x's 2), new frame (Enduro SX), new frame/fork (IronHorse Sinister and Z1), new cranks (Truvative Hussefelt), new fork (another z1), new wheels (Rhino Lites), and a new rim when I tacoed the front, new headsets (x's 2 both Chris Kings), new front derailleurs (x's 2), new grips (x's 2), new handlebars, new seatpost, new saddle, new stem (one RF Diabolous, one Thomson), a couple sets of tires and countless tubes!

    let’s see... i bought my norco fluid3 for $1050cad new off ebay. bought a load of new parts to upgrade to over the winter... installed some, still have some sitting in a box waiting to replace parts when they break or whenever i feel like putting them on. these include:

    - front & back derailleurs, shifters (all xt)
    - lock on grips
    - holzfeller cranks (double w/rockguard) & some truvativ dh bb (not the gigapipe).
    - holzfeller stem (came with specialized bighit oversized bar – off ebay)
    - truvativ xr seatpost
    - fizik nisene saddle
    - tioga dh 2.3s

    total spent on parts for upgrade, roughly $550cad (i think)... more parts to come too. just gotta take a break on the spending if i don’t want my wife to kill me. heh.

    i’ve also spent a quite a bit on various stuff like tubes, tools (like tire levers, multitool, frame pump, etc.), a dakine hydration pack, 661 armour and fullface, and some other things.

    current ride: 2003 norco vps fluid 3.0 (custom build).

    Rasheed,

    Gotta say, 1600$ total for that bike is a steal. You are killing the deals. That would be one sweet ride

    yeah, now if only my bikemech friend would return my rear wheel (that he’s supposed to be truing for me and stuff) i could go out and ride... i haven’t really ridden since the winter weather really started to bite ... i mean, when the weather started to get warm here, i was able to go for one short ride looking for some new trails near where i live (but couldn't find any decent ones), took a couple runs down this small ski hill they got here and found some dirt jumps that i hit up for a bit - which was fun being it was my first time on djs... i didn’t really consider it my first real ride of the season... so i’m really, really itchin’ to go out and hit some of the trails i rode last year.

    i also need to get a new set of brakes... these hayes mechs are killing me. you weren’t kidding when you said they sucked.
