    Hey guys. So I know virtually nothing about polishing metals. I stripped all paint off my titanium hardtail, and just want to give it a clear near mirror finish. I'm currently at a stage of wet sanding it down with a 1000 grid. I already tried polishing it with some polish and a polishing pad...

    Looking to add a new Hardtail to the bike quiver. Love the Santa Cruz Chameleon and have read nothing but high praise about the Chameleon. Seems like a rock solid, fun Hardtail for tackling just about anything. It’s my number one choice right now, but have been also looking at the Marin Team...

  4. So a guy walks into a bar...

    Bartender asks, “how’s it going?” “Okay, I guess. Holding my own.” “That’s good.” replied the bartender. “You’d get arrested if you held someone else’s.”

  6. Shimano XT brake job

    Yeah, I cut the rear brake too short. So I routed it on the top tube. Modern problems required modern solutions
  7. A mushroom walks into a bar...

    ...and orders a drink. The bartender says, “I can’t serve you.” The mushroom says, “Why not? I’m a fun-guy.”

    My bike, in the woods. It's revolutionary.

    Hello! I came across this bike and was wondering if it would make a good first mountain bike. https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/3136038/ Any advice would be greatly appreciated, because I really don't know very much about mountain bikes yet. Thanks in advance!

  12. General Discussion
    Got back into the sport 6 months ago after a long hiatus. I have a 2013 trek mamba I recently replace the brakes and tires on to enjoy the season while I wait for my Santa Cruz to ship in November. My girlfriend would love to join me on the occasional green, and ideally I would give her my mamba...
  13. What Bike to Buy
    Hi! I am a 15 year old boy looking for a good bike to buy. I'm currently using a road bike, which is good for getting from A to B, but I can't really do much more with it. So I'm looking for an upgrade. I'm looking for a light-weight hardtail bike that can be used both on road and off road, with...
  14. Rigid/Hardtail Bikes
    During fork compression the geometry of a hardtail changes. The more travel a fork has the more the geo changes as it gets closer to using full travel. The main focus of the question is Head Tube Angle (HTA). As hardtails seem to be a hot topic, at least in the communities that I'm involved in...
  15. What Bike to Buy
    I am on the lookout for a hard tail mountain bike and I am willing to spend 1200. Looking forward to do a lot of trail riding and looking for something that will hold up good for all obstacles that I will encounter. I have a 2008 specialized enduro comp sl at the moment and it’s an amazing...

    I have been riding this bike now for several months and its has been holding up really good. I have done some upgrades to it to help it fit my comfort just a little better. Here is a video going over some of the upgrades done with a little bit of ride footage. I hope you enjoy.
  17. Beginner's Corner
    Hey, I'm new to the forums but I thought to place my thread here. I have a 2021 Trek Marlin 5, and so far I'm loving it! I have just recently upgraded the tires and currently looking on upgrading my drivetrain to a 1x in the near-future. I am very confused on the compatibility with the Marlin...
  18. Apparel and Protection
    Hi folks, I just bought a Vitus Sentier VR 27 hardtail bike. I'll be biking on dirt trails here in Illinois. I'm looking for an inexpensive helmet but one that works well or has a very good owner reviews. Can you please post names of helmet products? Thank you!
  19. Hardtail Bike
    Imgur album with pictures: Hoping to make someone happy with what I believe to be a good deal on a bike that is just as capable going down as it is coming back up. Built the bike up new in September 2020. Selling because I found a killer deal and upgraded to full suspension. Bike is still on...
  20. Rigid/Hardtail Bikes
    "Fun" may be relative and there are personal preferences and different riding styles/disciplines, but I'm hoping to hear what hardtail (fat bikes included) has been the "funnest" for you and why? For me, fun = poppy (manuals easy, hops), nimble, responsive (so not too slack) comfortable/plush...
