My Tallboy got stolen, so I had this built. Ibis Ripley LS. Carbon. X01 Eagle 1x12. I9 wheels with Boost spacing. Fox shocks. Dropper post. Carbon bar. I didn't think I could love a bike more than my Tallboy, but this thing quickly changed my mind. It feels so much lower, more planted, and has a lot more travel. I do miss the tight gear spacing of the 3x10, but I consider it motivation to get stronger / in better shape so I can lug the next gear.

This is what got me riding 3 years ago. 2008 Cannondale F7 disc, picked it up used, in a package deal with a 2006 Iguana for my wife. It's an XL, I didn't even know there were different frame sizes when I started. I used it to commute about 10 miles each way, plus trails and we're starting to bikepack.


I just picked this up today Salsa Timberjack 27.5+. Frame is a Large, so it will fit better. I still plan to commute on it. Of course, the weather is terrible, so I'm playing in the house, maybe I'll put it on the trainer and feel the rumble


BTW, the LBS had one of these stolen last night. Fuggin Thieves
Salsa Cutthroat

Been riding the Devinci Troy for the last year or so. Added a 9.8 dropper post. Great bike for the price and specs.

Mostly XT, 2x10, currently running a DHX 5 coil, also have a CTD. Fork is a Revelation that wants to be a Pike.

Very fun bike. Shame it was discontinued.

Picked up a Norco Storm 7.4 to chase my 4 year old around the neighborhood. Hopefully I'll get built back up to riding condition at a rate that will keep up with him.
