Here's my race bike. It's set up exactly how I want it and weighs in the mid-23lbs area. It started as an '07 anthem 1 and got out of control...it's not clean right now but you get the idea. The bike handles like a fucking dart.

Drivetrain is '07 xtr (crankset, shifters, derailleurs, cassette)
Brakes are '07 hope mono mini pro
Wheels are '07 xtr (975)
'07 fox F80RL fork
Thomson seatpost
WTB Ti silverado saddle
ritchey wcs stem
easton ec70 carbon bar

Good thread.

I'm pretty new to Mtn biking, have only been riding about a year but I'm having good time with it. No racing for me, too outta shape still... but I'm getting my 30 to 60 miles a week in.

If you normally ride a large-ish road frame, look in the 19-21" or L-XL sizes. Smaller is better to a point. Too small is just as bad as too big.

For you, I'd go with the 21" mtn bike. :nod

I have a 'M' Stumpjumper FSR, and its just a little too short to the bars, needs a longer top tube and it would be muchos better, i.e an L. its OK until I hit long steep climbs in the dirt, then its hard to keep the front wheel tracking, i want a longer wheelbase.

I'm 6'0", medium arms/legs. I used to like to ride a 24" road frame (old school lugged steel), 23" was OK with the right stem and bars, 25" was too tall.

More info please...On both the riding area and what type of helmet cam you are using. Looks like a fun ride for sure and I've been thinking about getting a helmet cam for a while.
Thanks,
Justin

My oldest daughter is a little over 5' and my other daughter will probably be around 5'10 or 5'11" when she is done growing. My brother and I are about the same height, but he is only about an inch shorter than me.

If anyone has a lead on a Redline Monocog 26" rigid fork, please let me know.

Here's the newest addition to my stable. A new leftover Giant XTC. I hope to do a couple races this year. Should be pretty humbling.
