    Are those calipers the 2004 xt 4 pot hydro. If so do you find them horribly spongy?

    They are XT but theyre not 2004. They are quite powerful when theyve been set up right. If they were a bit spongey dont they need to be bled?

    i saw this up the top of glentress red route which means someone must have ridden up on it and had great fun on the way down ALIM0156.jpg

    thats right it was me!
  • Dirtbiker100 you were completely right in posting that photo i am now nursing a semi she's boooootiful!

    Mmmmmmmmmm. Marin quake. Dammit, every time i pop into the marin shop for something daft like brake pads or something, I always end up gawping at the Quake, and trying to rationalise the finance figures to myself for about an hour!
  • dirtbiker100dirtbiker100 Posts: 1,997
    Just keep it steady guys, she's mine and I'm not letting her go!
  • AnonymousAnonymous Posts: 79,692
    I'm to ashamed to ask about the Cycle2Work scheme to help myself buy a quake!

    Nick, you're just being selfish :lol:
  • dirtbiker100dirtbiker100 Posts: 1,997
    i'm just confused. i see 3? 4? dirt jump style bikes? a lot of those bikes overlap?
    if you had a road bike and a commuter instead i could understand it a bit more.

    so are there 3 trail hardtails? surely some of the bikes overlap in use though?
    i could see the point in loads of bikes if you had say
    race xc bikes (hardtail + full sus)
    trail bikes (hardtail + full sus)
    freeride
    downhill
    but don't yours overlap?
  • ABBOTS MIKEABBOTS MIKE Posts: 280
    overlap or not, how do you find time to ride NINE bikes?!
    i mean, i have one, and i think i could just about find a use for 3 or 4

    Well it depends on what you ride.
    i could have maybe:
    -commute
    -bmx
    -downhill
    -freeride
    -5" trail bike
    -race style xc
    -jump bike

    as i ride all those different things regularly.
    I have 3 bikes
    - singlespeed commuting bike for all road stuff,
    - bmx for park, street and dirt jumps
    - a marin quake which covers all mountain bike duties from XC (cwmcarn, glentress etc) to freeride hucks.
  • the pics are great and i under stand the mean for loads of bike i only have one but if you have the money and the reason to have several bikes ten why not
  • AnonymousAnonymous Posts: 79,692
    even if the bikes do overlap, so what. if someone owned 5 supercars no one would say, why not sell 4 of em, they all do the same thing.

    i'm sure there is a formula for working out the correct number of bikes a man should own, and it basicly means you should have 1 more than you have.

    more bikes for everyone.

    ps, giz a bike, nick
    pps. whats the deal with rb, ive never heard of em.
