One of my MTBs, took it out behind the hose today to screw around in the rocks, thing climbs like a goat too.

Foes fly, 888r, Magura Louis FRs, Hadley hubs with tripple-butted DT spokes and Bombshell rims, Answer carbon bars, X.9/X.0 drivetrain. Have to reweigh it, but it's still the lightest DH bike I've ever ridden.

Mexi knows what's up, except last time I talked to him he was riding a Trek or some crap like that. He used to be cool...

Bought this a couple years ago and just finally starting really riding religiously about 2-1/2 months ago. It's probably way overkill for the mostly XC type riding I do but I got a smokin deal on it and couldn't pass it up. I'm having a blast and have lost a little over 20lbs already.

I have been having a hard time getting some time in on it with 2 little ones. I need to make an adapter to hook the kid hauler to the back. After living on a bike for years, then taking a 10 year break its awkward.

I'm still riding my old (96) Diamond Back Response Sport. Steel frame, Rock Shox Dart 2 fork, upgraded the components to SRAM X9 9 speed. I've pounded on it for years (220 lbs) and its still going.

I mainly ride a 2012 KHS SJ300 with a FOX 831 fork, KING hubs, and headset.
My other bike is a 2006 Specialized SX Trail with Fox Van 36 180mm fork, original rear shock, Race Face Diabolus cranks and chainguide, Azonic outlaw wheels with Saint brakes with other odds and ends.
In the process of building a KHS Lucky 7 with 888 front fork and some other stuff.

2010 Ibis Mojo Carbon
2009 Specialized FSR XC

gonna sell both and move up to a Specialized FSR Elite 29 in a XXL frame *if* I can find one ...

I'm six foot eight tall and need a bigger bike, I hate to part with the Ibis Mojo but it is kinda small for me..

I have two bikes: A carbon Trek Pilot 5.0 road bike and a Gary Fisher Hybrid. Seriously considering bringing one of them back, probably the road bike.

I just sold my old '01 Cannondale F400 and got a '12 Marin Pioneer Trail 29er.

It's a bit heavier bike, but I'm not riding as hard as I used to. The Cannondale needed some work, and for what I'd have paid to fix it, I upgraded-being 6'-6", I'm LOVING the 29er geometry...and disc brakes are nice!!


If I decide to ride harder and want lighter, it will be easier to trade up from this newer bike.

I've always wanted one of these, a cheap one came up local so I grabbed it the other week.



Going to sell the single crown and pick up a dual crown before the season starts though. Already going through it now to freshen it up, but I'm really excited to be able to rip it for short money.
