That's a nice bike. Nice scenery too, as usual i'm not doing much riding this time of year.

 

This was from one of my last rides of the season, and I saw maybe one other person the whole time I was out.

Those are the best rides. One of the many advantages of a bike that may ride on something coarser than smooth tarmac.

I forgot about this thread.

Lots of road bikes here. I am mostly riding mountain now because I got tired of LA drivers and I am only 15 minutes from the trail head.

So here is mine.

 

Custom build:

Frame - Rocky Mountain Altitude 770msl (2013 with 2015 carbon rear stays)

Shox - Fox x2 and Pike RCT3 Dual

Wheels - Light Bikes 35 mmm on DT swiss hubs and 2.4 Ardent/Nevegal combo

Stem - Kore 55

Bars - Enve 780 (will probably cut them to 760)

Post - 9point8 fall line

Group - XTR with one up 32 oval and 45/18 conversion and Race Face Atlas cranks

Brakes - XT

27.5lb

Makes me stupid brave on the downhill and climbs surprisingly well when locked out.

pholcus: Nice bicycles. Thank you for the detailed build.

post #3776 of 3830

I ride a Wilier GTR SL with Ultegra. Love it. Last one was an Orbea Orca and the Wilier is better, more comfortable and much better handling. Gotta love bikes...

post #3777 of 3830

I am blessed with having plenty of great trails near me here in New Jersey, so MTB is a common hobby of mine. I ride the Talon 4 2016 Edition, does anyone else with the bike have a problem with the brakes being lackluster?

I have never heard of these "Tektro Auriga", Hydraulic disc, 160mm

Have you had your bike shop look at them? They may need to be bled. I use shimano XT and had the entry level Maguras previously (tr 200 I think) The shimano's are much better both in stopping power and modulation but I never had a problem stopping with the Magura's and I think you can buy them after market for $30 each so they are not expensive.

Get your bike shop to look at them and perhaps bleed them or/and clean the pads that should solve the problem.

How do the Avid BB7 compare with the Shimano XT, do you know? I'm getting ready to start building a bike. Thanks!
