Here's my newly built Haro Mary XC. It's a mix of old and new stuff, since I can't afford everything new! :p Besides, I think it's a crime to have some of this stuff lurking in the parts bin and not be using it.

Frame: 18" Haro Mary XC
Fork: Steel Mary OEM
Headset: Cane Creek S-1
Seat post: Salsa Shaft
Saddle: WTB SST titanium circa 1996
Tires: Bontrager 1.8" XR's
Rims: Alex TD-17's
Spokes: Wheelsmith DB
Nipples: Brass
Hubs: XT disc
Brakes: Avid BB-7's
Shifters/Levers: XTR circa 1997 8spd.
Handle bar: Salsa Pro Moto 17 degree
Grips/Bar ends: Team Green Ergon
Bottom Bracket: Shimano UN-73
Crankset: Sun Tour XC Pro Micro Drive circa 1992 w/ 20T granny!
Front derailluer: SRAM X-Gen
Rear derailluer: XT 8spd with gold ano cartridge bearing jockey wheels circa 1996
Cassette: 12-32T 8spd XT circa 1996
- Avid Rollamajig, blue ano
- generic cables and housing

Some stuff will be changed out later when I can afford it. Cables and housing and head set will be the first to go!

I haven't ridden it yet, but we do have about 5" of snow on the trails right now! :p Soon as I can, I will!

Eight is great

Very nice build. I like the color. Eight speed stuff and the original WTB saddles are timeless - new isn't always improved. How about some Suntour XC pro thumbshifters instead of the triggers? I'm sure spring can't come soon enough for you.

I got yer thumbies AND roller cams!

I've got some Suntour XC Pro 8 speed thumbies, (and sevens come to think of it!), a couple beat up XC Pro rear mechs, and some Sun Tour roller cams. Now if the Mary had a roller cam option, well I coulda.........anyway! :p

Come to think of it, I have Sun Tour XC Pro Grease Guard hubs too.......dang!

I would be remiss for not thanking ssmike for this bike. Major thank you, sir! :D

I can't wait to hear more about this project of yours. I hope you can share!

Weight

jrm said:
Id be interested to know how much it weighs..
26lbs or so. I could lose some weight by going with my Switchblade carbon fork, new light weight hubs/rims, and a few bits here and there. Sub 25 wouldn't be out of the question.

I'm a big guy though, so the weight weenie program is focusing on the "engine" for now! ;)

That really is a cool shade of green.

Nice looking build. I bet it rides beautifully. I rode a werks SS for awhile, and it is a very nice bike. Not that it compares to the Mary though!

:thumbsup:

He Ergon, don't push it here, because I bet he didn't pay for those barends.

Where does it say that he didn't pay for them?

You can ride it any time. Just beware though. It's gonna be alot nicer than that F-29! ;)

Give me a chance to get the bugs worked out of her and let me know what works for you.

Nowhere.
I just thought, Ergon is working with GT. Ergon is also working for Ergon. GT is raving about Ergon. Ergon is responding to GT showing of Ergon.
People get paid to do things like that you know.
Correct me if I,m wrong.

I love Ergon grips, period.

Whether or not I got them for free, know the guy that works for them, or not. Doesn't matter.

They made my riding a thousand times more enjoyable and pain free. I would gladly pay full retail for a set tomorrow if I needed them.

Actually, I think they look kinda goofy, but danged if they don't work!

At least for me, anyway.
