    Zinaru – when I win the lottery, a ti jones space frame will be top of my list. An itch I really want to scratch!

    Hi – charge cooker Ti. Have kept the steerer long and spaced out on top as it then let’s me run the garmin on the headset stem mount and the exposure toro on the exposure stem attachment mount without fouling each other.

    My old faithful FF29 which has just been retired

    and most of the bits rebuilt onto a second hand carbon frame to save a few pounds! I hope the lack of colour coordination doesn’t offend. Look away now if you are of a sensitive nature 🙂

    Titus El Chulo – bought the frame as a cheap way to dip my toe into 29er land, and rapidly become my ‘go to’ bike.

    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.

    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
    Plastic pedals
    1×10 – Saint shifter, Xt mech, Sunrace cassette
    Gravity dropper
    Vibrocore bars

    It’s light yet very capable and I’m still exploring what it can do

    Finally got round to building up my SS Scandal after having the frame sat hidden in a cupboard for the last two years!

    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?

    Mines running 2.4 ardents, no complaints here.

    You think they would be good for Dales and lakes type stuff?

    @danw Thanks, so far its proving to be a great ride 🙂 The fork is an On One/Planet X carbon I picked up new from eBay.

    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.

    Both of them are Blacksheep.
    Both went on to be owned by different people from the forum.
    The one with the extra tube is a Highroller and the other a Highline.
    The Highroller was one of the worst handling bikes I’ve ever ridden.😱

    Good looking bike. On-One were mad to discontinue it.

    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.

    @epicyclo Thanks 🙂 They certainly were, its a great ride.

    @solarider Love the Seven.

    Genesis High Latitude here, fitted with slackerizer, longer fork, dropper, Hans dampf. Fastest and most fun hardtail I have ridden

    Mine:

    Bargain bin build, it has convinced me I like 29ers though but also (as per my thread the other day) that I maybe want a bit of tail end bounce…
