Why was the old "post your rigs" thread taken down?

Those long forum stickies are classic.

So here's my rig even though I'm not actually using it for mountain biking at the moment. (Sticking to the paved trails as I'm trying to lose some weight. :innocent: )

I put some Specialized Nimbus tires on it for road riding, and I just replaced the stock saddle tonight with a Specialized BG2 Sport. (Yeah, I need to lower the nose a bit. I haven't actually ridden it with the new saddle yet.)

Anyway, it was cheap for a new bike, and it's a really comfortable ride, so I'm enjoying it. I've named her the M.U.P.A.B. (Multi-Use Path Assault Bike). :thumb:

When i got the bike there was allot of spacers on the fork tubing. Should i take some off and get a higher degree stem? What are some good stems?

Here is my brand spanking new 2010 Cannondale F5. I have plenty of road bikes I could post photos of but I will hold off on that. Cannondale did a bunch of updates for 2010 including a new lighter frame and a new fork from RST that has a 1.5" steerer tube. I did just pick up some Time ROC ATAC to replace the flats in the photo...now I need to get out on the trails...hopefully this weekend.

Now rather then a fine line between plowing into a tree and going way to slow (as on the old frame), the bike lets you know when you're angering it by slowly loosing traction at the rear.

I could be wrong but you got the tires on the wrong wheels. If you put the rear tire on the rear wheel it might help the climbing:thumb:. Also the tire you have the rear wheel is directional and you have it on backwards. Maybe this is your preference, but the tires are designed for a certain purpose and using them as designed will help all around.

Nice bike. I really like that shade of red.

Dude...those trails seriously...nice.

TimJ 08-09-09 10:05 AM

That's not even the half of it. My crappy CVS brand rechargeable batteries ran out so I didn't get any pictures of of the super-awesome gnarly parts of the trail. Those are just the vistas.

Nope. It is supposed to be a front specific tire. I find that the tread better (at least for climbing) going this way. I think I'm going to replace it anyways as I'm missing a bunch of chips out of it from my hackish no brake rock garden riding.

Is 1.5 going to be the new thing?

I see they've gone from 1'' to 1 1/8

now I'm starting to hear about this 1.5'' stuff. Is there any significant advantages, besides having more metal up front?

All that work...down the toilet with just one single post.

Granted I haven't lived here all that long, but I don't believe
Missouri is any better. I confess I miss the trails in Texas,
and being able to ride them in January/February without
the slightest worry of freezing to death.

My first mountain bike back in 1999 was a Specialized Hardrock in red, very
similar to the color of your Kona. That bike is long gone, but I still remember it - and several
of the "learning experiences" acquired with it.

I don't know. I know Cannondale went there when they started doing the Headshock and then used it for the Lefty...so in theory I could put a Lefty on there. I also know I road bikes they use a 1.5" lower bearing to increase stiffness on CF bikes (Cannondale actually did tests that show no significant added stiffness for an AL bike).

That is about all I know about it.

ed 08-10-09 06:11 AM

Actually, Cannondale used the 1 1/4" headset when they came out with the Headshok. So now young Cheeto...you have 1", 1 1/8", 1 1/4", and the good ol' 1 1/2". Oh yeah...lemme throw another coal on the fire for you. Tapered steerer tubes. 1 1/2" lower headset cup with 1 1/8" top cup.
