Got a closeout 2014 Scott Spark 760 for $400 off in january. Been looking to upgrade for years since I bought my last bike as a 96 closeout in 97. Only way it happened was a decent bonus from the company, and being in the right place at the right time.

Haven't ridden it a ton, but considering I maybe have 200 miles on my old bike, the 10-12 times I've ridden this have been a huge improvement. Loving being on a much more modern setup and being more comfortable, but still don't feel comfy enough to shred like I did when I did my last race in 93/94. But I'm older and fatter now, so...

Just picked this up a week ago, so far its a real fun bike for pedalling up and rips it once you point the wheel downhill.

Just made a deal on this today. One good thing about being a fan of the 26 over the 29 platform is finding good deals is easy.

trading out some driveshafts and shock mounts on a local guys Sammy buggy.

Very curious to know how you like those tires, and what kind of terrain you ride? I'm looking for something less aggressive than my schwable rotten rons for the summer

Just picked this up for free about a month ago. Been workin' on it little by little when it's raining too much to do anything outside. GT XCR3000 w/ iDrive. Needs a new rear shock - or a rebuild kit if I can find one for it, some hydro fluid for the front brake, and I the upper shock mount is bent, so I have to bend that back without snapping it. I'm pretty excited to get it going though.

Another new bike in the stable. Bought this at the first of the month. Specialized Epic Comp Carbon. 29er.

This is my first Carbon frame bike. I'm loving the steeper head angle with the 29. The quicker steering and lighter weight really makes it feel a lot smaller than it is.

Sorry, I'm just now seeing this. I love them. I mainly ride paved roads and dirt trails right now because I'm trying to get weight off myself. They do great on basic dirt trails. If the trails are wet or very technical, at all, they would suck. I have the 2.4" tires and they are huge but I would buy them again in a heartbeat.

Makes sense. I mostly ride locals trails which are hard pack and loose over hard, so those would likely work reasonably well for me. Mine work ok, but it doesn't take much to find their weekness. That said, if I were to get summer tires now and install, I'd be swapping out to winter tires soon. Probably better off looking for some better winter tires for now

'15 Norco Range.

Have since went 1x with the 11-40 praxis cassette and got a dropper post.
Future plans include going tubeless and upgrading the shock. It's a fun ride for sure.

Just picked up a 2005 Trek 6500 SLR, 1 owner, super clean with a few ugrades for $200:

Avid disc brakes, specialized body geometry seat, All Bontrager sport components with WTB dual duty wheel set and Manitou Axel 80mm front shock

I've been out twice before it got bitter cold. We have a pretty killer bike park in the making here www.griffinbikepark.com

Don't remember is I posted pics after I started building this thing. First bike in 20 years, it's a '98 GT Richochet. I have done a front disc conversion, a Suntour 100mm lock out fork, 29" front, different bars and riser, ect. It rides like a caddy, it's a strange riding position but I really like it. Was at the lbs looking at a Salsa El Mariachi today. Damn I like that new one!!
