    Default Mountain Bikes of Velocipede Salon

    I checked the gallery forum but I didn't see a MTB-specific thread. Can we start this thread to showcase members' MTBs, in light of the new sub-forum?

    My Kona Hei Hei Supreme. 22". Basically replaced everything stock except for the frame, shock, and fork. Best of all to get rid of was all the SRAM crap it came with. Love this bike.Attachment 63094

    Sorry, here's the pic. I went to edit my post because the photo was rotated and a customer came in. By the time I got back to the computer, the 10 minute window to edit was up. One more try.

    I'm baffled. How do you stop it without disc brakes?!

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    The current fleet:

    SS with big wheels:



    The Fatty:



    A 650 Built for a friend:



    And 650 for me!



    For a bit of "Keeping up with the Salonistas" content, my 650xc bike used a relatively gucci custom fork. I bought an O'13 26in 120mm travel SID World Cup cheap on the eBay and swapped the 26in lowers for 29in lowers. Creating a ~90mm travel 27.5 Sid WC, something that still doesn't exist. I've the proper 27.5 lowers now and will make a proper frakenfork using the RCT3 damper instead of the remote lockout thingy used in the WC for next season. The RCT3 damper is considered a better pure dampener vs. the whatever it's called hydro remote lockout in the XX and WC if you can do without a remote lockout. The result will be a 27.5 tapered/carbon steerer "short" travel fork with lots of bushing overlap and good dampening. I was able to do this because I fell into a few of these parts cheap, but why the hell isn't this fork available off the shelf? A





    P.S. I gave up on accuracy and consistency talking about dampers/dampening/damping and 650b/27.5

    This is going to be a sticky. Maybe rename it too.
