This thread is dedicated to the Enduro / Trail Bike.

It’s 2014 and the bikes we love to ride, both up and down the mountains, have continued to improve by leaps and bounds. Whether it has 26”, 27.5” or 29” wheels, this is where your bike belongs if you pedal your bike up and reward yourself with a rip down the hill.

Use this thread to post up your bike regardless of wheel size, the number of chainrings you run or if you use a dropper post and discuss these machines to your heart’s content.

Feel free to share some details on your set-up, weight or whatever makes it special to you.

Don't have a photo yet of the 2014 rig, but its pretty much the same as this just 2014 colorway vs 2013. Biggest change this year will be 1x11 when funds allow….

Same as last year.

Biggest upgrade is the CCDB Air w/CS. Transforms the bike into a mini-DH sled, so much fun.

1x10 w/ 30t and 11-36 cassette
160mm Fox Talas 34
XTR brakes and drivetrain.

A couple of months old now, but so much fun. Might have to splash out on some carbon hoops though, the bigger wheels are definitely not as strong…

My Dixon rips. It's not carbonium or anything, and the wheels are too small, and the dropper cable is on the outside, and the derailleur is too floppy, and I have at least one too few gears on the cluster, and I still use a chainguide. ;)

At least my fork doesn't have silly switches. :P

Sweet rig. How's the BOS stuff working? I'm deadly curious to give it a try. Is the black damper shaft on the Kirk custom, or can you order it from BOS that way?

Ride, don't slide.

The BOS suspension is sublime. I have no idea why the damper shaft is black on the Kirk? I ordered one from the NA distributor in Vegas and that's what I got.

I am planning for this to be my only mountain bike for 2014. As a recovering bike addict, this is going to be a new challenge.
