    So its nice to see a lot of Taco owners into Mtn Biking. While there are good Mtn Bike sites out there, I spend most of my time here, so I thought I'd share with y'all. I've been collecting parts for a while and only recently have started the assembly.

    Started with a used frame/fork from a local mechanic.

    Race Face External BB installed

    Wheels in place, went with front 20mm Maxle and std QR in rear
    [​IMG]

    But the 2.35 tires have very little mud clearance
    [​IMG]

    New 2.10 Velociraptors on order as well as new wrenches to install rest of the Race Face crankset.

    01.11.12
    New tires arrived and I installed them this weekend. Better clearance!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Also got some big ass crank arm wrenches to finish up the Race Face install.

    Cranks, bash guard, rear derailleur and brakes installed

    Grips and Grip Doctor in place

    Hope Tech brake lever installed

    [​IMG]

    I had to file the housing mounts to fit the Sram ferrules
    [​IMG]

    Ferrule test fitting
    [​IMG]

    That's about it so far, I have to route all my cables and set up my brakes. I'm having a bit of an issue right now with my rotors nicking my brake mounting adapters, I may end up taking a little material off the mounting adapters.




    03.21.12
    Finally got around to finishing it up.
    I had issues with the Azonic wheels not lining up true in the frame or forks. With the Maxle front, I finally fabricated a washer to insert on the disc side that fit into the recess of the Pike shocks.
    I installed and routed all the cables.

    03.22.12
    After everything was in place, I bleed the Tech levers and M4 Hope brakes then centralized the pistons about the discs.
    Sorry no picts, was in the zone about finishing it all up.

    Finally took the beast out for its virgin ride.

    I didn't get too crazy this time out as the brakes hadn't bed in yet, but all worked great!
    I locked out both the forks and rear suspension for the climb and let her loose for the decent, plush yet agile !

    Well....that's why it took so long. I had a second job doing construction just to pay for a lot of it. Since I have 7" of rear travel in my old Mantra I didn't need to bust this out in a hurry. I did a lot of waiting until stuff went on sale. I also didn't want to skimp, as I had been dreaming about this for a long time.

    Looks great! The red anno components are tastey and those Hope brakes are awesome. Kingdom trails look out.

    Locally I help build trails at the Pine Hill park.
    Check out some sick bridges..

    Lookn good Charles and the bridges at Pine Hill are most impressive. Don't think I've seen composite materials used in a park before, looks built to last.

    We have a little of everything depending on the application and cuts involved. The trickier ones are made of pressure treated lumber. I'm tempted to head out there tomorrow as it may finally make it out of the teens....brrr

    That looks great bro. Gets me really stoked to throw my tax refund into a new 29'er.

    Do you always run those tires or were they just lying around? I couldn't stand the VelociRaptors that came on a Gary Fisher I had. Too much resistance, and they didn't really make up for it traction-wise. Decent for mud thought which I guess ya'll have quite a bit of up there in the spring. Can't say enough about Maxxis though, I run High Rollers and love them for an all purpose tread.

    ^^ I'll have to try the High Rollers out. Those VelociRaptors are new, hadn't run the rear before. But I have had good success with the Smoke/Dart combo as well as Hutchinson's "On the Rocks" rear specific. These were close to those in tread pattern. I change tires out quite a bit for weather and terrain. These are for the soft tight singletrack around here. In the picture..the yellow ones, Hutchinson's Pythons are what I run 95% of the time on my Mantra. This is my current stack, I know I have more tires laying around somewhere. The green ones, Michelin Wild Grippers are wicked fast. I do have a tendency to pick tires with high edge knobs. I steer a lot with the rear tire, digging into the corners .
    [​IMG]

    These are what I'm running right now for the winter on the Mantra

    ^^ Thanks, I have never added it up. Kinda scared to. If the wife ever asks, I can honestly say, I don't know.
    Ballpark figure..a couple hundred, give or take a few G's

    Haven't had any pictures taken in a while. Sounds like a good idea though, I'll see what I can do come spring time. No one will go out riding with my crazy ass in the winter.
