    I just finished this last night, still needs fine tuning but I just had to ride it. I picked up the frame over a year ago and finally felt up to the task. It is a custom Mikkelsen (not built for me) hardtail. Mid 90's? Reynolds? pretty light frame. A donor bike provided the SRAM X-7 derailleurs, Firex crankset, BB7 front disc and front wheel. I added a Single Digit 7 v-brake for the rear. I wanted a light, rigid fork and thought I would try one of these (subtle they are not.) I took it for a quick spin around the block and liked the ride. I still have a suspension fork if I decide to go that way, but I wanted a quick, light trail bike.

    Have you had a chance to ride it yet? How does the fork feel?

    I'm living in the northeast now, so we got hammered with snow and the trails are covered. I've only had a chance to ride it on the road...couple stairs, some small-ish urban ledges, etc. Super plush compared to the stock fork that came with the bike (RST Launch). It raised the front end of the bike a little, though it feels like less than I expected, since I had practically no sag with the old fork (Launch wasn't set correctly, and I wasn't about to waste money on a new coil for that fork). Looking forward to getting some trail time.

    Well it sounds pretty promising for the little amount you spent on it!

    I just started a few months ago so my ride is entry level. No upgrades, but it gets the job done. I am not ready to start spending thousands of dollars on a bike.

    MMMm. New Elixir-R brakes and some SRAM 10 speed goodies. No trail time yet though. 29#6oz.


    New Transition chainguide - simple, cheap, and loads lighter than the Truvativ Boxguide it replaced. 35#3oz.

    Neither is getting any lighter without compromises I either am not willing to make in the parts spec, or in dollars spent.

    Five. Hardtail, squishy trail bike, DH bike, commuter/grocery getter/crap weather around town bike, and road bike. My wife's bike is also kicking around, as well as a cheapy drop tube beach cruiser.

    Thanks. Workstation is...in the works. Small one-car garage. I have a goal of still being able to get a car in. We just recently got it emptied of the rest of the (newly installed) kitchen stuff. I still have a couch that we are going to get re-upholstered sitting there though. Slowly working on organizing things, and getting lesser used things stacked/hung up high to free up floor space. Whe more room to work presents (the coulch is done and in the house...) I'll be adding some insulation to two exterior walls without any, and doing up lots of pegboard, and hanging racks/shelves form the rafters. Some sort of small work table as well. High ceiling is at least a bonus.

    Won't have much room to really work on things with a car in there, but that is a rarity anyhow. I just want to ensure we have the room to get one in if we wish.

    When spring rolls around, we'll be doing a small shed out back, so the yard type stuff will go there and free up more space here. Some of this will end up in the basement as well, eventually.

    Maiden voyage for my Mikkelsen hardtail. Bike was great, but I am not sold on this Mosso fork. This is the aluminum version and I am getting a lot of front end "brake dive". May try a steel fork.
