Here is a better pic of my soon to be modified 2018 Yeti SB 5.5.

9/10

Pretty much spot on.

Here's my steel pig, used and abused and going strong every single day.

Yes 8/10- Bulletproof is always the way to go.

Here's my 2015 Honzo ST. All this baby knows is abuse. Not the best pic but you get the idea.

I sold my 2014 Scott Genius 720 to buy my new 2018 Scott Genius 920. So I definitely like your Genius and some of the upgrades you have done.
My Genius has a few changes
Nobl carbon wheelset with Silent Nobl Hubs (amazing)
Renthal Carbon Bars 780mm
Wolf tooth Dropper lever
Fox shock lockout for rear to replace the Twinlock /dropper lever combo. I only lock out the back now. makes for a much cleaner cockpit.
Magura MT7 Carbon brakes ( which have since been sold ) and going to Shimano Xt Dual piston brakes.

I know grips and saddle are personal preference but the look odd on this bike. The dropper lever also is kinda huge compared to the one Bikeyoke have. Your cable routing looks great.

I'd give it a 8/10.

If you want to go Shimano, get the new XTR 4 piston brakes. They are awesome.

Here's mine. Still waiting for that Absolute Black chainring to complete the XTR group set with the matching cranks. It's a pity Shimano can't deliver theirs. (Click for bigger image)

10/10 for the Santa Cruz... Bought my first FS this past fall and the Bronson was on my short list!

Here's my Stumpy 3

9/10 on the FS above. Point off because I gravitate toward matched color schemes and the purplish pedals clash with the blue looking grips (stupid, I know). But they match the fork decal nicely.

Ultra cheap steel hardtail:

Great Stumpjumper! Looks great and spec'd wonderfully. 9.75/10 (not a fan of the Ergon grips .... but that is just me being nitpicky Wink )

How about a Carbon Depaula PRS 2.9 Singlespeed .... Depaula is a tiny boutique brand based near Atlanta, GA. Bike as pictured is set up with a Reba RLT fork, Cane Creek headset, Thomson stem, Enve carbon bar, Raceface Half Nelson grips, Sram Level TLM levers, Sram XO calipers, Stan's 3.30 hubs with Crest rims, Maxxis Ardent front and Ikon rear tires, E-Thirteen TRS crank, Crank Brothers Candy SL pedals, Surly Singleator, Thomson layback post and a Raceface Aeffect saddle.

Nice hardtail! I like seeing local builds from smaller brands. That ardent up front was on of those most unpredictable tires I have ran. If you find it washing out, you might want to try a forecaster. It pairs up well with the Ikon in the back.


Pretty generic SB5.5 turq. Nukeproof pedals, ergon ti saddle, wolftooth small parts, DT481 with 54poi hubs, bars cut to 780.

Great build. Sometimes keeping a mostly stock build is a good idea.
