    I couldn't find any threads on this worth resurecting so..

    I know this is mainly a fixed/road bike website, but there's a few mountain bike riders on this website, and i thought it would be great to have a mountain biek thread, i'm interested in sharing and learning riding techniques, part recomendations, tire choices, etc...

    please post your MTB rig and share some of the specs, and get this thread started!

    I recommend you buy all the parts I just put up on eBay. They were intended for the 29er which I never built. Go!

    I haven't ridden it in like 2 years and currently it is a frameset with wheels, but if you insist.

    I'll finish building it and post pics, I need to sell it anyhow.

    I've learned that people on here won't pay the huge prices that I put on stuff. Only when I sell some little crap for nothing do I get interest.

    Or build it up with the pile of useless MTB parts I already have.

    Heres my trail destroyer:


    https://velospace.org/node/28079

    She's been out exactly twice this year, I've been entirely too busy with school. Hopefully in the next couple weeks I'll have some time to make up for it.
    I have some crappy cell phone trail shots with my bike in rigid fork mode. Maybe I'll throw those up on here later.



    maybe.

    Thanks, I really like the Elixir CR's. Initially they were a slightly overfilled from the factory so they had ridiculous brake rub. After I resized and bled the front, and pushed out a couple drops of fluid from the rear they work really, really well. the point of contact adjustment is really nice. Towards the end of last season I biffed big time and destroyed the front lever, I end up replacing the whole front brake setup with a new one with a carbon lever blade for about $35 more than replacing just the lever. The front and rear don't match now, oh well.

    The Silverado saddle is great for me since I like to move around on the saddle a lot. Its very comfy on the trail, but I'm not sure if I would ride it on the road where I'd actually be sitting on it most of the time. But for that half sitting/half hovering thing you do when riding a hardtail its great. I'd buy the Ti railed version in a heartbeat if i could get a reasonable price.
