    Built on a pretty tight budget, Took me a while to get everything together but it rips thru trails. Still need some sort of chain tensioner for the single front ring, running 1 x 7 right now, as every once in a while the chain will drop off. But Its nice and light and simple.

    Hey guys and girls, New guy here! this is my Titanium Charge Blender. This build started out as a decision to repair/upgrade my old 2001 GT avalanche.
    As you may notice, things got a little out of hand...This build has taken me the best part of a year to complete, as I constantly kept chaining my mind about what I wanted.
    I wanted a DJ and an XC bike, but didn't have the room for two more bikes.... So after a lot of umming and arring I decided to build a bike that could potentially do both. Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions that you would like to make, go for it.
    cheers,
    Freddyy

    I love dirt.... and look ma... no drop bars.


    Rocky Mountain Blizzard

    Almost clipped the bar when I was shooting through this narrow little gap between some trees... only had a pinky space to spare on each side so was thinking I might want to take a little off the sides if I plan to revisit that spot as the trees are only going to get bigger around.

    Looks nice to me. Perfect urban ride if you got some smooth rolling tires, like inverse treads.

    Finally decided to step out of the eighties and got rid of the flat bar and bar ends. Installed an Answer riser bar and ODI lock on grips.

    After many many permutations, I give you what is potentially the nicest/most tricked out Raleigh M20 ever constructed.
    It's the perfect xc bike for the north florida trails I ride.
    This is how it came when I bought it

    I picked up this Klein recently and considered moving the parts from my raleigh over, but it's just a bit too small, and it would be a shame to disassemble a perfect bike.

    but then again, maybe they just like the unique look.

    I just noticed that it very much isn't stock. (Couldn't see the pics the first time you posted.) Was there a previous owner who did a lot of work to it and then apparently never rode it, or never crashed it? I see fork, stem, cranks, chainguide, wheels, bars, dropper seatpost.

    Speaking of the dropper post, you generally would pedal around with it up and drop it all the way down like that only when descending.

    Yeah its not stock by a long shot. The guy barely rode it and it's almost brand new aside from the normal wear and tear. I put the seat down for the pictures. I don't like the way it looks up lol. But yes I ride with it up when I'm on the road or easy trails.

    Wheels, tires, and seat aren't stock either.

    It is a pretty simple build:

    Take a basic 2006 Pugsley with a 3 by 1 drive, add an Easton stem, Ritchey ergo bar, and Tektro linear pull levers to replace the risers and controls, and build a custom rear rack.

    The tensioner is a Suntour XC Sport tri pulley and shifters are Suntour Accushift... right lever is there because I am building up a new wheel with a cassette so I can expand my gearing but for wet work that White Industries freehub in the rear is bombproof and the gearing range is not bad at all.

    New arrival that I probably won't be keeping but it sure is a blast to ride... 2001 Rocky Mountain Stratos.



    Everything is original except the saddle and post.

    I'm pretty new to bikes in general and espcially building bikes so I didn't understand a word you said! haha I caught some of it. What kind of wheels are you running there, would you need to get extra thick rims to get tyres that fat? and I got it add race stem and bar, then pull levers though building a custom rack may be a bit out of my depth lol (i am only 15!) so I'll have to buy one. I prefer going single speed just for the sheer simplicity of it and I just wanted to ask. Do you have any suggestions for making it totally bombproof and strong as well as waterproof like you said? I'll check out white industries hubs btw

    Start here:

    http://surlybikes.com/bikes/pugsley

    The Pugsley and it's many cousins are purpose built to run much wider rims and tyres that cannot be run in a standard frame... drop bars and their controls are my preferred set up on most bikes.

    Sealed cartridge bearings in the hubs and bottom bracket are essential if you plan to get wet as is the use of frame saver to protect a steel frame from internal rust.

    I picked up my Pug used at a great price and with the new freewheel in the back and what I would have had to pay for a custom rack (I build these) I am into this for less than 1K although buying a new Pugsley off the rack would cost double that but would still be cheaper than building it up from it's respective parts.

    They really are a rather incredible ride and much more versatile than many people think... I live in a place where winter lasts over 6 months and the Pug really shines at this and is also great for adventuring and will handle terrain other bikes cannot.
