- The Let’s See Your 29er Hardtails/ Rigids Thread
wishing you a lottery win!
i just opted for the bank loan option, so glad i did. what an adventure and all this time later i still have that new bike grin. folk do zone in on the cost (and visual appeal or lack of) but for me, the whole thing is so solid, well thought out and so wonderfully ridable, its worth every penny.Posted 4 months agoyourguitarheroMember
My Ti Titus Fireline. Lovely bike.
Have built it up with nice yet not super bling parts. Reliability was a big factor:
Rockshox Pikes @ 140mm
Hope/Easton wheels with Bontrager XR3 and Hans Dampf tyres
Hope X2 brakes
Middleburn Uno cranks
1×10 – Saint shifter, Xt mech, Sunrace cassette
It’s light yet very capable and I’m still exploring what it can doPosted 4 months ago
Seems like a good place to ask, looking for some 2.4 ish fast rolling tyres for my lovely light xc 29er (pics coming soon), currently got geax saguaro 2.2’s and would love a bit more shock absorption with similar weight and rolling (I know moon on a stick) what would you all recommend?Posted 3 months agofunkmasterpSubscriber
Some of the niche tat I’ve owned in the past before I came to my senses.
What are the bikes in the last two pictures? Best niche tat I’ve seen in ages. I’m tempted to sell my full sus and go rigid. A Krampus, El Mar or Stooge to cover everything from commuting through to peak riding.Posted 3 months agotwowheelsMember
Awful photo but I can no longer resist posting my DIY repaired Chinese carbon 29er with recent changes for Beastway race series like Racing Ralph 2.1, 105 carbon SPD SL (yes really), removed mudguards and 2nd bottle cage etc. I’ve also got an ZTTO SLR2 cassette (-125g) waiting to go on and a 310g asymmetric Chinese carbon rim as an experiment (-145g), which is wider and will hopefully be stiffer for monster power delivery (haha jk)- with a lighter hub (pro 4 or DT 350) and DT revs I’m aiming to shed 600g from the rear wheel after going tubeless and replacing the xt rotor with an ashima ai2. I’ll also go tubeless on the front but probably won’t splash out on another carbon rim. Seems hard to go lighter after that without seriously sacrificing rideability or longevity.Posted 3 months ago
