This bike gave up all it's XT/ Avid goodies for a new to me FS build soooo.....I went thru all the parts I have laying around from owning 14 bikes and upgrading/changing things and brought this back to life as my offroad SS bike. 34/16 gearing. Started life as 9spd HT...........

Oh, I am. Have had other SS offroad bikes so I'm prepared with my alternate attack plan for no gear trail action. I have another SS cog like in your avatar with 18t if it becomes necessary.

Thanks for heads up. If I blow my 2 up then of course, it'll get replaced with something stronger.

Thanks. I haven't crashed any of them beyond use so they get recycled(pun) into something else. Always one short of how many I need, as the saying goes.............

There was one of those for sale locally the frame only. I thought about buying it for the 85.00 they wanted. Frame needed stripped and powder-coated pretty badly though.
I paid 150 for a very low mileage freshly pivoted and painted frameset with the Fox Alps4 shock. I almost bought another one before finding my 2002 Giant NRS frame, which is where the XT/Avid stuff went to from the Supergo in this thread.

Old version of Panaracer Fire XC Pros that had the smaller orange lettering on the sidewalls. Newer ones have bigger white lettering.

Rockshox XC30 with firm coil and WTB Exiwolf 2.1s have also landed on this bike lately

Yeah, disc only 27.5 fork. Already has ProMax mech discs, just moved front over to new fork...weird and cool thing is they came with levers and the cables/housing are oversize. Fork replaced offbrand that had football needle air spring fill and some gummy stiction monster seals. Much better and simpler with coil. Extra weight neglible. Acceptable tradeoff on this bike..
