I personally like FULL SUSPENSION with Hayes Hydrolic Disc brakes.
I did alot of research,and purchased a GIANT AC-1
Oh MY gosh! Super plush suspension! (5.5" front/6" rear)
and it only weights 28lbs (that's superlite for a full susp)
It costs bank, though!

GOOD LUCK IN YOUR SEARCH!
HAVE FUN WITH YOUR NEW BIKE!

yeah. luckily it was my left hand, and the nail grew back with no major problems.

and just to be nostalgic, here are some old pics of me.

same jump, different angle and different bike


this is the set that i overshot and dislocated my shoulder on. there's a 4th jump out of frame to the left that has a 15-20 foot gap. i had too much speed, overshot the landing and came down nose first. over the bars onto my left shoulder from 30ft up doesn't feel good

other angle


urban huck. there's a low hanging brick arch just above me that i get well within a foot of.



2006 Iron Horse 7point3. Azonic Outlaw Rims, Marzocchi 888vf fork, had a Marzocchi Roco TST-R shock before I sold it. Sram x-9 rear derailleur, E-13 Bash, Hayes 9 brakes, blah blah blah.


Blk Mrkt Riot. Rock Shox Argyle 318 fork converted to air internals, crap wheelset, crap Hayes Sole brake, and I repainted the frame and fork lowers myself from army green/white to flat black.

Great pics! I've never been much on the jump thing. I probably should be better. I'm just happy to get out on the trails and play in the mud.

I'm not sure how I missed this thread, but I've been riding since the '90s.

I ride a 2009 Yeti ASR - it looks almost just like this one:

Cannondale Jekyll 2 Carbon - trail bike

Transition Bottle Rocket - slalom, dirt jump and freeride bike

Yeti 303 RDH - race bike

Transition TOP - park bike

anyway heres some pics from this year



















Schwitzer mountain





Silver Mountain

Ya I usually just race DH mostly due to the fact that all I have ever had is a bike set up more for DH but now that I have a trail bike I have done a few more Super D events.

most of the time when I ride XC I just like doing long back country epic trails.
