    Just noticed this - - diggin' the mini-chopper in the background. But . . . is that a twin I'm seing? An old 160 or 175 engine?

    Looks very nice. Did not realize it was that large displacement of a mill. Looks like it will be fun.

    Stock except for Oury grips, Sram chain, spd pedals, and Bontrager saddle. Plus accessories. Picture taken on the Shoreline trail in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    The following short answers are good answers, but not the only ones for the question asked – 29”, Brooks, lugged, disc brake, steel, Campagnolo, helmet, custom, Rohloff, NJS, carbon, 31.8, clipless, porteur.

    I like it too.

    Somehow it seems like the answer to all those threads whether to rebuild some POS (I'm in that dilemma now with the Tass) or jump into something new. The new bikes are just way cooler.

    OMG!!!

    Thanks. It's the best handling bike I've built so far. The objective was to end up with something with decent performance, but that I wouldn't feel bad when it gets beat up a bit. I can actually afford a lot more bike, but I figure riding this level of bike for a while will make me a better rider in the end (and you don't miss what you never had). Plus I have a building addiction (GT Avalanche frame currently in progress).

    I just realized my mistake. Can't believe I did that. I'll have to fix it.

    Pic attached. Shout out to Snazzy for hookin me up with the fork, Ed for answerin a few questions I had, and the general BF grouches that put up with my dumb questions along the way.
    It turned out to look ALOT better than I expected. It's a heap of really, really random parts.

    I've had this bike for six years and have never taken decent pics of it. It came as a Shimano Deore LX build. I have modified it a bit here and there, but this spring right before riding season I bit the bullet and did some serious upgrades. The bike weighs 24.2lbs with pedals as pictured.

    1. XT front derailluer


    2. Saint brakes


    3. Salsa carbon riser bar and the 7 degree stem were installed a few years ago, as were the XTR shifters. Loving these saint brake levers though!


    4. X9 rear cassette and chain to go along with the new XTR cables I installed. Drivetrain worked like a dream until last night when I whacked my crank on a rock.


    5. The whole bike. It's by no means a top of the line machine, but I love it so much. I bought it knowing nothing about mountain bikes because it was on sale and looked cool but I've grown to the point where I'll upgrade this bike forever before I go buy a new 29'er. I hang with most of the guys from the LBS on shop rides anyway and they are on 29'ers.

    This was my first rig, a Specialized Rockhopper FS A1 Comp with full Shimano STX, I had upgraded the Rear Dérailleur to a Deore XT unit, I bought the bike new in 1995...



    About a month ago, I found this while wiping it down after a ride...



    OUCH!

    Soooo... this is my new rig, courtesy of Specialized
    Built on a 2010 Hardrock Pro A1 frame.



    Most everything from the old bike was installed on this one except for the front Dérailleur, it has now been upgraded to a Deore XT unit as well We put a new chain on too, since the old one was pretty rough.
