Yeah, don't post it here so that someone else can do it the minute after you post it.

It's not AM/FR/Enduro but it's sexy AF.

Could be AM/FR/Enduro....if you are some kind of masochist who loves pain.

Cool looking rig.

Stop the insanity! It's like saying a 160mm travel 29 x 2.8 tired bike can be an XC bike, cause that's what one prefers for XC. I'd rather people post their own bikes here so we can make them feel bad with witty remarks than posting nerd-boy rigid bikes (regardless of their beauty) that would be absolutely horrible to ride down big gnarly 'all mountain' terrain. What's next, 29er unicycles??

That would make a fine enduro bike for the gnar gnar of Ontario.

Enduro bikes are like, 170mm travel full squish bikes these days, basically pedally DH bikes. That bike is cool, but it's an artisnal dirt cruiser. A steep rock chute or chattery roots would just be awful on that thing at least if you're trying to do it at any speed. There's some gnar in ON, just little in Souther Ontario.

It has 180mm rotors on the front. Come on!

Come by sometime. Most of our XC tracks are littered with Hightowers and Remedies.

Elijah sent me a tracking number this morning for the Marino Cabala I ordered a couple weeks ago. I'll post my "Gravel/XC" build in the other hardtail thread in a few weeks. My parts are all ready to go. 150mm Lyrik, mullet wheel set, 2.4" tires, 203mm rotors,... lol been missing good gravel grinder/xc ride, I'm thinking more along the lines of Ted Lasso "She was a striking woman. Not classically beautiful, but striking. First time I ever saw tan lines."

I did my time in hell before moving west.

My opinion is those on Hightowers and Remedies are better suited on Tallboy's and Fuel Ex.

It's the same here, everyone thinks they need a Zeb on a Spire when in reality they aren't over riding a Sentinel and a Lyrik.

Well like I said...more or less...you would have to hate yourself to use it for such a purpose. Doesn't mean I want to see more of them =P

Around here, even the sendiest stuff can be ridden fairly easily on straightup XC whips. My 5010 is absolutely overkill.

I was a hardtailer for years, then bought a process 111 which felt like cheating, haha. Northern ON definitely deserves some squish.

I love my Rootdown immensely and it's the perfect bike for almost anything ... but ... I also very much love my Rocky Element. Fast and fun with just the right amount of squish. It's nice to have choices.
