  1. Frame Building
    Hey y'all I'm putting the important stuff in red. I'm trying to do a full suspension bike build for under $300. That's actually not (I hope) as dumb as it sounds. Here's what I think I need: Full Suspension Frame Rear Shock (if frame's rear shock is bad) Shifters Frame: I found a $70 Genesis...
  2. What Bike to Buy
    Heya folks. To give some background on myself, I'm 30, 6'2", and currently about 287lbs, down from 305 at the start of the year. To make a long story short, my dad and I are riding bikes together to lose weight, and he's got himself a mountain bike (A 2009 Scott Aspect) while I've got a gravel...
  3. Rigid/Hardtail Bikes
    I am currently riding the Norco Fluid H2. A budget hardtail and I was looking for some budget upgrade ideas. I know of tire inserts, but do they do much and how much should I be paying. I would love to upgrade my coil fork but I don't have the money at the moment. Tire pressure. I like to...
  4. Brakes
    Dang, this is a really hard topic for me, usually, I'd know what to get. Disc brakes are so expensive but as a high schooler who wants them, my budget is much lower than the usual Joe. For example, there are the Mt-200 but those are just a small improvement from mechanical and they have the 2...

    Any good new trail bikes for 500 to 750 Hoping for a 1x and an air fork
  6. Apparel and Protection
    I've always just used an old pair of sneakers for mtb, but my feet are feeling the need for something better. Does anybody out there ride mtb in skate boarding shoes? Seems like a basic pair of Vans or DC skate shoes could be had for $50 vs the $100+ fora pair of mtb specific shoes.
  7. Shocks and Suspension
    I was reading this article:(RockShox Recon RL Fork: Rider Review) and I just wanted to know if the issue is still current. If it is, that sure it quite a downside because I want to be able to adjust the rebound on the fly. Thank you in advance
  8. What Bike to Buy
    Hello ! I want to join a few friends for trails / aggressive xc / small jumps eventually, So i was looking at entry level talons originally but that seems like a mainly XC beginner bike bare minimum spec, i don't want coil forks i think either. nor 100mm travel, now looking at 120mm minimum up...
  9. 29er Bikes
    What does "affordable" really mean? Last year after the cycling industry's annual trade show known as Interbike, I did a write-up on some of the best value mountain bikes for 2015. Now, just as then, the amount of bike you can get for $3000 has never been higher. But using the term "affordable"...
  10. 29er Bikes
    Please be sure to read the lastest round-up of the most affordable mountain bikes for $3000 here>> Now is a great time to buy a mountain bike. The amount of bike that you can get for $3000 has never been higher. While most of us would balk at spending $7,000 to $8,000 (or more) on a new...
  11. California - Norcal
    When I linked Gov. Brown's proposed parks budget ( ) in some other threads I was hoping to see it generate some discussion (without having to drag in the topic of OHV's!) Sadly, it appears that not many in this group were willing to...
