Ahum thermoplastic ahum.

Ahum carbon fiber reinforced thermoformed matrix Ahum. As opposed to carbon fiber reinforced thermoset matrix.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Anyone build up one of these babies yet?

Gary J was riding one of those when we went over to the SSC for the Super D race last year (? or was it the year before?).

You updating the quiver? Barham's Cotic is kinda similar, maybe not as slack. He has it built up uber xc light.

hardtail peeps -

Is thinking of running a single 32T with 9 speed rear possible? Do I need a front derailleur and bash guard to keep the chain on?

I've got a 34t Chromag ring on my Stylus, the chain fell off occasionally so I picked up an MRP Mini G2. Still nice and light and now I can rail the bike that much more.

Being cheap is OK. Being a clueless sanctimonious condescending douchebag is just Vlad's MO.

sridout on these boards had a ti holeshot and sold it, i think

i had bad luck running 1x8 (and 1x1) on a hardtail. some folks say the chain falls off less than on a bike with suspension, because it's not being bucked around by the rear travel. but i would tend to agree with shirk - there's no cush preventing it from being bounced around by bumps and stuff, so i think it's more of a problem on a ht than on a dually. get a stinger

I guess everyone has different experiences. My front derailleur is all I need on my HT, I rarely drop the chain. I can't wait for the Shadow+ trickle down though, that will be the last thing I need to perfect my ride.

I might go with the Blacksprire Der guide for my Surface. I like the idea of not bashing a chain and ring to shit on a ride!

Single ring for me, destroyed a few stingers!

Changes from 2011, new lube on chain, brakes bled.

Still over 30 lbs, funnest bike I have ever owned!

Sorry for the supersize, I am not great at the internet.

after a few rides on this I can safely say, for what I want in a bike, this is the best bike I have ever owned. I will stop the whoring after this.

weighs in at 26 and change. 32x20 gear ratio. way too much fun.

Just a speculative fiction. No cause for alarm.

that's got nothing on the guy we saw riding up Burke on a carbon LTS the otherday, f-ing rad.

That's got nothing on the guy who rides his fluorescent green fixie on franks, represents the hipster way of no brakes. He slides..

He shreds regularly.

Beat that.
