    Just converted my trusty old Horse to a SS.







    It may not be a cutting edge ride, but we've been through a lot together over the years

    Now it's nice and simple

    Upgrade time... courtesy of local CL I picked up a couple year old race wheelset.

    Chris Kings ISO hubs, DT Swiss spoked with Stan's ZTR 355 running my newer Specialized Captains tubless on my old FSR Expert









    Disassembled, did a full service on both hubs and the first ride today was awesome. Quick engagement and the upgrade to tubeless feels like its added quite a bit of rolling speed to the bike. Hands down one of the best upgrades you can do to a MTB.

    Beautiful bike. Are you sure that headset is pressed all the way in the cups? Maybe its just the pic, but I just looked at a couple of my bikes with CK headsets and the top of the headtube is flush with the headset. It looks like there is a 2-3mm gap there is this pic.

    New stoppers on the 5 spot. Worthy of a few pics. These things kick butt!

    I put my new 29er together after work today. I haven't had a chance to ride it anywhere but my driveway yet but I'm excited to take it out tomorrow. It's a hell of a lot more simple than the rest of the bikes in here but that's how I like it

    Awesome build! Did you do it yourself or buy it that way? The PUSS came as a frameset only if I'm not mistaken.

    A new frame, now a work in progress. Swapped most of the stuff from my aging, pig-ish, a bit too big for me Devinci Frantik frame. Pedals and rides fan****ingtastically. Not what I'll be grabbing for most daily driver trail rides, but some days/certain areas will call for it. And the lifts. 32#10oz. as shown.



    To come: new rear brake (stole the one in the pic off another bike to get rolling) Works Components angled headset cups to drop another degree of head angle, and a Race Face Atlas FR bar in green. The rear DHR is purely "meh" inducing, but it's what was kicking around for a DH tire. Will ride it until death, then swap in a 2.35 High Roller DH



    The Domain is chunky, but it just plain works. A Totem Solo Air would rock, but again, already had this fork, and for drastically less cash. rims are for sure more on the XC side, but work. When they die, will be swapping in some XM819's and swapping to a full tubeless setup.



    It's awesome that they put that sticker on.

    Got two rides over the last two days on it, and it rocks. Will probably get way more local trail saddle time than the Devinci, since it weighs a crap load less, and pedals way, way better.

    I like how you said the Devinci was "aging". It's like 2yrs old, right? I can't talk, I guess. I don't stick with the same setup very long, either...though I've had the Komodo frame for quite a while.

    Nah man, it's an 07 that was ridden pretty good even before I got it. About three years ago. Got a cheap deal on the frame, which in retrospect wasn't so great considering it is just not a good fit. Have never really felt comfy on the thing. Hardly ever rode it other than at the lifts, because it was such a freakin' pig, and very unwieldy on our tight and twisty stuff. OTOH, when things got super steep and ******** fast, it really shined. The Reign-X feels awesome so far.

    Bigger than I need for most of my local riding, but there are enough spots to make it worth having, plus still being able to take the lift served stuff around here. That's where the -1* headset will come in handy. It's about 66* and 14" BB height with the 7" fork - the Works C. cups will let me get slacker without raising the BB higher.

    Long story short: I wanted a big hit bike that could survive the lifts, but not be unwieldy on the local trails.

    If you had to have a one bike quiver, this would be a good call. Dropper post, different tires/wheels for different days and you'd be set.

    Thanks man, bought it as a frameset lightly used (had to be a carpet queen before because there was no way she ever saw dirt before i owned her). Built it up as a rigid, but found a sweet deal on the fox fork so i dove in. Been my trusty side-kick for two years now.

    Was just reading over on RM yesterday of a few guys building Reigns/Reign Xs as their burly trailbikes and, dang, here you show up with one, scrub. They're quite a machine.

    Leave that decal on. I hear if you remove it, they get a skittish tendency to swap ends easily and without warning. Kind of a directional LBD.

    Finished my SS foothill blaster (that's what I'm calling it) it's not a bad at all, I've been jumping it a bit too, the forks will need to go but I had them laying around from my trek so I used them for now.
    First mock-up

    Second mock-up paint mostly stripped.

    Finished, the color is Midnight metallic black, that I used a purple base with. (it looks pretty wicked in the sun) I for some reason decided to go with a blue chain and grips.

    I think I've posted this before, but it has dirt drops now, so here it is again. It's on Schwalbe Marathon Pro tyres at the moment, because I've been using it on the road a lot. They do surprisingly well on trails though, provided things don't get too messy. It's going back to knobbies for the winter though, and I'll tape the bars up when I'm sure I've got the brake lever position right.

    I call it A-bomb, short for abomination. It is my urban chucker/light freeride hucker/bike park thrasher! To upgrade in the future will be better crank with bottom bracket and bash guard, shorter stem, and better platform pedals.
