My 2001 Titus Switchblade, re-created into a 650b trail bike.

Maybe the only 650b MTB in Germany?

In any case, it'll be out at the Thurs PM ride.

Gallagher's (Rad)ioactive Niner Air 9

Thinking about upgrading the drivetrain to 2x10 SRAM XO. Then I will be finished with this build.

The latest buildup in the Jones stable. Raleigh XXIX Steel Frame with a Soul Cycles rigid fork, WTB wheels, 33X20 drive train, and of course, brooks saddle.


"Dicey Reilly"

Dicey Reilly, single speed Kona Paddywagon Road Bike. The name is from the obvious Irish nod of the model anme,and the green color... and coupled with the 'Dicey' prospect of cross-town singlespeed commuting... The name "Dicey Riley" is the name of an Irish drinking song about a well-loved but aging whore.
Current setup is 50X18 drivetrain, and skinny road tires... otehr than that, stock Kona Paddywagon.

"BOB"

BOB (Big Orange Bike) is in moutnain bike configuration in this pic, but is currnetly being re-purposed as a commuter after being replaced by the above SS MTB as yet un-named.


"Ole Reliable"

Ole Reliable, my super-commuter. 1X8 gearing, big roomy paniers, and a trailer attachmetn for which I have a cargo trailer capable of hauling a full load of groeceries. This one was a cyclocross bike from bikesdirect. Added a flat bar (although since I've put a semi-drop swept back bar) and an air zounds horn.


As yet unnamed racing bike. Light weight aluminum sette frame, fox fork, raceface deus cockpit, and front crank, 1X9 gearing. Sicne this photo it's been blinged up with a selle saddle, and a carbon seatpost. Easton XC one wheelset with SRAM X9 rear derailer.

Gallagher's Weapon System-1

Post by Big Wave on Mon Apr 25, 2011 10:34 am



Guys,
This is the replacement from Specialized. I was a pain in thier dairier for over one year until they offered me a "good will" replacement. In case you didn't know already, Specialized has the worst replacement policy. It's like being on trial until you break through the epidermis of doubt, then they are willing to work with you to compensate. The 2011 S-Works Carbon 29er has FACT 11m Carbon, one more layer for added durability. Funny, they've added and beefed up the chainstays where I had my fissure. They even put side-panels and laminated it extra good in those areas. Must have been a common issue in their 2010 line. I am looking forward to bringing this out to race, but I cannot say this will be my daily driver. It was too costly and I know now how fragile carbon mtb frames are. Like Spooky said, they are replaceable, and for $3K, not worth the cost. Thinking Scandium Aluminum is the best...ahem...Niner Air 9...Fistpump to all believers!

This is my 2009 Turner Sultan. I absolutely love this bike and I ride it everywhere. If you check out the 2011 Turner Bikes catalog, you can see me riding it across page 1

=https://servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=8&u=16429646][/url]

This is my race rig. It comes in at a whopping 20.89 pounds (after changes) with pedals and two water bottle cages.



A little better pic of the bike ready to roll.

It's clear that there's more to cycling than meets the eye. I thought mountain biking was riding my Huffy 12 speed mtb around the state forest in southern Massachusetts when I was 14. When I aquired my Trek 3900 with front suspension, I thought I was really moving up! Seeing all these high end bicycles, it's a wonder how I manage to hang around on the trails! Maybe Santa will get me an upgrade for Christmas.
