- Show us your super bike (MTB)
Inspired from an earlier post (http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/which-is-better-one-super-bike-or-multiple-bikes-for-different-ocassions/page/2)
Super bike* = unique or expensive (say above £4500 rrp)
For the record I don’t have a super bike but I do appreciate some bike porn 🙂Posted 4 years agofeistyMember
I love this bike more than any I have ever owned.
Just fitted some 1410g Crest/tune/DT wheels to it lighter rotors and slightly lighter tyres and lost almost 2 lbs from my heavy hope wheels and 2 piece rotor set up.
Loving the XO cranks and AbsoluteBlack 32t spiderless chainring as well
Currently 19lb dead and with non snakeskin tyres (needed around here) and the rigid carbon niner fork it would be high 16s!

@feisty, that in my eyes is a perfect bike, absolutely love it.
Here’s my latest build which I guess could be considered to be on the way to being a super bike (despite it being an On-One!)
Hope Pro 2 EVO on Stans Crest, Rocket Ron 2.1 front/rear
Hope Stealth Race X2 EVO brakes
XX shifter, XX1 cranks, X0 short cage mech
Thomson post (Reverb on the way), Thomson stem, Answer bars, ESI chunky grips
It needs some tweaks (bar height is still being worked out), but I’m happy with it so far.Posted 4 years agojonxmackMember
@njee20 the plan was initially SS with 1×10 in the future, but finding SS dropouts was a PITA so I just went geared straight away. XX1 would be nice but I already had the 10 speed cassette and the only reason I ended up with XX1 cranks was because I had a hard time finding any X0 cranks for a decent price!
I’ve not actually ridden it yet as I only finished it yesterday and had my stomach tattooed on Saturday morning so it was still a bit sore, but will hopefully get out on it this week and then will decide if I need more gears or not 😉Posted 4 years agojamesoSubscriber

My superbike, a Jones steel std frame with truss fork – because there’s nothing else that could do all that this bike does and be so much fun doing it, or be likely to survive the amount of use/abuse this bike has seen. I have a posher version but somehow that makes it less super.
