Well I just got my first FS mountain bike. A leftover 2011 Teocali Elite on Amazon. I'm so happy with this bike. I love the 26", 2x10, and the plush travel. I have so much confidence on this compared to my hardtail.
New 160mm-120mm SR Suntour Durolux RC2 TA, it is a 2010 chassis with the new RC2 dampener and travel adjust cartridge.
Also switched it a 2X9 setup with a Bionicon Chain Guide and Race Face bash-guard.
Here is my 2001 (I think) Mongoose Solution from Sports Authority with the good old Judy TT shocks. It has surprisingly remained stock since I bought it. It served me well enough on trails and paths but I had to true the rims after each ride. It needs a lot of upgrades. I just got an Airborne hardtail so I will likely sell this soon.
2002-2003 MongoosePro Grand Marquis frame ready for my first bike build. Bought it off of eBay as brand new old stock. Thankfully it came with a bunch of spare parts cause I imagine it would be hard to find replacements.
