    Looks great phutphutend. Love the simplicity. The only downside is no bottle mount.

    Personally see that as a plus. No need for one on an Enduro type bike

    Riding with a pack sucks!

    I’ve got the SWAT cage/tool, tube on the frame and pump in my back pocket. Done.

    I was going to say phutphutend wins the thread… But then isn’t the point to get us to buy more bikes? 😆

    Looks great phutphutend!

    No marketing BS. Engineered by the best…me! Handmade by my own fair hands. Tough and it rips.

    Is there a thread about this? If not, why the hell not?!!

    2014 Alpine, it’s gotten considerably dirtier since these pics which were taken the day it was delivered.

    Some lovely bikes on here.

    Some of my favorites are: the stealth bandit, Blur tr, Evil uprising and phutphutend’s hand build beauty.

    My Banshee Rune v2 2014. Most capable bike Iv ever owned. 29 lbs and have had to change the rear tyre after a week in Malaga but apart from that it’s exactly as in the photos. Hope you like them,
    All the best,
    Lee.

    @ Euro. Love that bike. It looks like the big brother of my bike 🙂

    Generallevi – loving the rune mate, top spec, lairy but I like it 🙂 I think the rune would be one of the few serious contenders if I ever kill my alpine (along with another alpine of course). Some lovely bikes in this thread.

    @ generallevi, bike looks mega. Where about in Malaga did you ride? Need some sun and dry trails myself

    Here’s my old girl. She’s 9 soon 😯 that’s , like, 40 in stw years or 150 in Hora/RobJ years 😆

    @Stevede
    Thanks mate. I used to ride and Alpine, old shape, great bike. There is not much in them in the way if performance in my opinion but they both go about it in a completely different way.

    @downhilldave cheers fella. We stayed with Michael at Switchbacks and it is a truly amazing set up. 10-15 van assisted runs a day, staying in a Scarface type mansion and because of Spain’s unfortunate economical meltdown everything is dirt cheap, including many bars being 1 euro a pint. 😉 Literally struggled to spend our money which is a far cry from Morzine 😉

    Managed to crack my SB66c frame so thought I’d treat myself, first real ride today and it’s a keeper.
    Oops, looks link a link problem, will maybe do something tomorrow.

    Personally see that (no bottle cage) as a plus. No need for one on an Enduro type bikeNo way. I’d say the opposite. I love being able to head out with no pack or race several stages at a race with no pack.

    Can’t be many of those left in the wild. Did you get a replacement swingarm for it or has it not broken (yet)?

    Kona Process 134 DL before its first ride out today. Sorry about the decking.

    Love the process but that shock mount would worry me!

    gaz552

    I’ve seen other angles of that shock mount and it appears to be quite substantial.
    I am really tempted with a Kona Process 153 tbh, looks like a bike that would do anything I would ever want from it. I’m not sure about how decent a press fit bb would be, also it is not a light bike.

    Premier Icon kimbers

    Yup the Process shock mounts are actually very substantial when you see them from a different angle youll kill the shock before the mount deforms

    The entire bike is impressively stiff

    My 153 was 32.5 lbs from new easily lost more by going 1×10 and I’ll replace the weighty deore hubs and cassette when they die hopefully with some lb carbon wheels
    Either way the weight is worth it for its descending ability

    Ok, this should work….Mach6 in stealth mode, yes, you can buy a Pivot without garish stickers all over it.

    Picked it up yesterday and did some 34km of various stuff, rock gardens, flowing singletrack, 300mtr climbs etc.
    Compared with the Yeti SB66c before it its going to take me a little while to get used to the short cockpit but on the descents, especially the rocky stuff we get in my local area, it felt very assured, just release the brakes and go.
    Going to take a little while to get used to the lack of acceleration, though it felt slower than my SB66c Strava seems to says the opposite!

    This thread is going to get me into alot of trouble with Mrs L, between the Pivot Mach 6s, ^ Stewart’s is the nicest colour scheme IMO, the Ions and the other kit I’m struggling to resist a new frame!
    Anybody want a giant custom Remedy frame? 😉
    You look like you’ve got a bit of adjustment there to lengthen the cockpit too there if you’re still finding it a touch short in comparison.

    Premier Icon stewartc

    Haha LoCo, lots of good bikes out there, was going for a Giant Trance Advanced SX but the distributor in Hong Kong doesnt seem to know when they would arrive (or if any) so opted for plan B, the Mach6.
    A Nicolai ION16 (long lead time) and a Bronson C (everyone here has one!)running it close.
    The SB66c is a long bike so nothing wrong with the Mach6 cockpit apart getting used to a more ‘upright’ riding style, from the little jaunt yesterday it should not be that hard to adjust.

    Can’t contribute with pics just yet, but ive just pulled the trigger on a 5010c, in invisisteathninjaassasin black. T minus 3 weeks…

    May as well get onboard with this thread as I’ve just finished building my own beast!! 🙂

    …looking too clean at the moment, but getting that bitch filthy is now a priority!

    Good effort getting it under 30lbs. Mine came in at 33lbs with coil 36’s. I doubt the change to Devilles will have saved much weight.

    Wooly monster that Spitfire is lovely. Still can’t believe how many Banshees there are on STW these days and I’ve still not seen another one out in the wild.

    @MindMap – It’s a Rune V2 mate, everyone thinks it’s a Spitfire 🙂 managed sub 30ib too! Working where I do I see a few Banshee’s flying about and all of the owners are well pleased with them.
