Here is my Specialized Hard Rock 29er Sport disc.
Very comfortable on the trails and on the road.
I have put dual head lights and tail lights for night riding
and a Cateye double wireless computer. I run the tires at 65 PSI

Just did my spring overhaul. Switched to 1x9 and added a new derailleur, bottom bracket and grips. Now if I could find somewhere close to ride it.

That's one cushy lookin' saddle! Usually the lever for the seat post quick release points to the rear on your bike so that the lever sits flush against the clamp. 65psi is great for pavement rides, but definitely drop down to 25-30psi if you take it to the trails.

I dig the white/black color scheme. White rims!

Recently traded the Fixie/SS I hardly ever rode for a beater MTB. Old Gary Fisher Aquila.



Needs a bit of love, and my dog needs to get out of the way, but I can't wait to get back on the trails. It's been way too long since I've had a MTB.

no not really. place the camera down, start filming, get on the bike ride back up to a starting point, go past, ride back to the camera, stop it and go on.

it was like 30 minutes total in film. then i just compiled the video. That is why I look a little slow to lol. But thanks! i dont think it turned out to bad for self filming

I was thinking that they are the Dart/Smoke white tires. Umma Gumma's were grey....well, at least until all the rubber wore off (after one good ride in dry rocky conditions that is!)

They're old WTB Enduro Raptors if I remember correctly, 26x47/54. They desperately need to be replaced, and I'm having a hell of a time finding them in that color. I should probably just go with black, but I really like them in that color. Lame, I know

I'm in the same boat, I still have a pair of green Michelins on my Giant. Best to get new tires as rubber ages and gets harder over time.
