Never understood why nobody wants a front brake anymore. I always used my front brake tons.

My kind of bike, nice work. Was looking at an, "Airborne Plague"; because it was a good deal at one point. Funny name, but it was a great deal compared to similar offers. Your bike passes my basic visual inspection, unlike many bikes nowadays. I must admit they look better in person, like I saw a Pivot Firebird online before, and I thought it looked shitty, but I saw one in person at a local bicycle shop, and it looked really nice, so who knows what snake oil.

Just killing me with the Shimano 8020's, I got a M8000 like a month before they changed to the 8020 caliper. At the time I was even like, "Shimano is targeting me with bullying this is so bad".

Damn, kind of want to upgrade to a Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain. They're such a good deal for what you get, especially now that they've been overshadowed by the new XTR 9100, they'll be bargain basement. Really something to think about. Yours looks nice!

Solid fork, like the good old days. There are definitely upsides to a solid fork, but if you watch a rigid bike through rugged terrain, it's brutal. All depends how you want to use the bike, honestly if you're mostly on the road, or even doing skills like bunny hopping, many instances a solid fork is better.

Pretty likable bike you got there. Only things I'd want is make sure the rims are strong, and maybe a gusset at the headtube. I had WTB rims of probably similar spec years back, and they were bullet proof for me, so it all depends. The frame size looks pretty much perfect for me, I always want a 15 inch at the seat tube frame. Had a chromoly frame back in the day, and it went well beyond it's intended duty.

Yeah those are nice. I have a Evil Faction 1, and was bummed I didn't get a 2, would rather the horizontal drop outs, and the modern 1.5" headtube. Mine rides like a Cadillac, heavy, comfortable, and zero noise.

Has a lot of admirable features. I love the chromoly Norco 250 from that era as well. https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p4pb1622204/p4pb1622204.jpg

Does your SRSuntour Durolux C2R2 work well? I read a review where they couldn't use that damper due to issues. I think personally the reviewer couldn't get their head around dual speed compression, and rebound adjustments, so they just fudged it up, and complained instead.

I think this is the helmet I have. "RS" stands for Richie Schley? Mine is very easy to adjust, and I tried on all the helmets at the bike shop, and it fit the best. Still a little worried about bashing my face, so I might buy a full face, but this is as good as it gets when it comes to a standard helmet for me. Of course it was expensive when I found out it fit the best................Helmet reviews are pretty useless in that everyone's head is different, I just went to our city's one massive bike shop, and tried every helmet until I found a good comfortable one. I wouldn't blindly buy a helmet in the same sense you might get uncomfortable shoes if you just buy a random pair without trying them on.

Nice. Yeah I'm really becoming a weight weenie, I used to think bicycle weight was just insignificant (I used to think, "I'm 250lbs, the bike's only a low percentage of the total weight"). I bought a Reynolds 520 cromoly frame, with a 7 inch fork, and it's like riding a big fat Cadillac. So now I need to save weight, and bad! Bicycle weight really limits skills, and what you can do with the bike in terms of maneuverability. I'm also trying to lose body weight, I'm heavy because I weight lifted for many years.

Thanks dude, upon your recommendation I decided to try them out. Might also buy the Shimano XT 8020 4 piston caliper, as right now I have the older XT 2 piston caliper. They fricking released the 4 piston caliper like a month after I bought the 2 piston FFS!!! And I'm heavy with weak hands, and need lots of braking power.

Added a comment about press release Introducing Brandon Semenuk's Pro Model etnies Shoe 9/13/2018 6:04 PM

I had such huge expectations for these shoes, I guess I was bound to be let down. I just thought he'd do something radically good for biking like make them out of carbon fiber or something, or with ski boot style straps, or BOA laces, or something radical improvement wise..........
