Post your MTB ride

Gotta be done. Bring on the fat tyres, suspension, hydraulic brakes, wide bars, bash guards, and muddy grins!

Kickin’ it off with my Santa Cruz Blur LT. Best bike in the entire world, no exaggeration.

Post 'em up!

Edit: I just realised the forum description specifies ‘Fixed/SS MTBs’, so this thread fails from the outset. However, I’ve never been one to pay much attention to rules, so we’ll continue as planned. As you were.

Thanks for pic, Rick.

Since your asking.
My On One Inbred, SS, ridgid 29er.

…and me in the enviro, just this afternoon.

kona stinky (took photo just then, still need to wash it from today’s ride)

giant stp2 polo/DJ/mtb. hopefully going single speed soon, just need to work out a ratio that is good for polo, but still alright for riding the 10kms to polo

Sekt, nice Blut LT!!

Here’s my Santa Cruz Chameleon. I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks now, and it’s my first MTB. I bought the frame, and while I was looking around for parts, I worked out it would be cheapest to buy a complete 2011 Giant XTC and strip the parts off it. A mix of XT, SLX, Rockshox Recons, and Juicy 5 brakes (which I already had), make it a really awesome bike to ride!

Chameleon, chilling on a rock at the You Yangs:

Cheers Wheelworks, same to you! Mine’s pretty new as well. I’m now a happily paid up Santa Cruz fanboy.

I would happily ride another Santacruz. I used to have a jackal that I sold to fund a Downhill bike. It was a solid jump bike! I loved taking it dow to the local BMX track.

Anyway, here are my steeds:

The stumpjumper - Love this bike. After a few years of riding solidly on it, I am feeling very ‘at one’ with it. I know how it is meant to ride and if something just a little is off, I can usually tell straight away. I have a video uploading at the moment of me and the stumpy out on the trails today.

Then there is my BigHit. Good for fun, not for racing as it is a little too soft.

And my latest member of the dirt family is the singlespeed on-on. I ride this 3 times a week on my lunch break up and around 15kms of singletrack close to my work. It feels strange to be back on a rigid MTB after spending so long on my last two dualies.

This is my old Cannondale. It was shit for attacking as the front fork didn’t have a lockout.

And before that was my first modern MTB. A Giant ATX 860… I would love to find one of these frames around, they were so damn light!

Here is the Video of my local trails…
