The Official "Post Your Bike" Picture Thread!!!

Post by screescree » Wed Sep 27, 2017 1:07 pm

So I've had a hunt about, and there's no picture thread for bikes and their setups! :O

I like to perv at bikes, I'm a bit of a Peeping Tom in that respect :-bd

So post your bike below, what gear you're using etc.

I'll get mine uploaded when I get home :)

Originally a 2014 charge cooker 3 hardail. Went rigid after forks failed, went dropbar due to wrist issues with flat bars.

SSGeorge how'd you find the spoon saddle?

Mine is fine for shorter rides, but after every long day(for me, 120km) I've get a sore patch. Could be due to terrain/damp though.

Been using a WTB rocket lately which I like, but it restricts movement off the back of the seat due to its width.

Cheers :-bd
My issue might be due to width as its narrower than recommended when I had a (road) bike fit with a saddle pressure map. Was always fine for up to 3-4 hours though.

Sounds daft, but try the Charge Ladle, its the womens version, about 10 or 12mm wider? My mate had the same issue with Spoons, needed a wider saddle and opted for that. Worked great for him

This was my bike yesterday. It's a Pinnacle Ramin 1 with some upgrades. I love it for bikepacking, it works a treat. :cool:
XT mechs and shifters, Easton carbon bars with Ergon GS3s (yay barends!), Deore chainset/BB (I wanted a wider range of gears and 2/3x9 is much cheaper than 1x11). Rockshox 30 Gold forks (surprisingly decent for a budget fork albeit a bit twangy if pushed hard), Reverb dropper (off another bike that I upgraded) but can be swapped for a Thomson Elite if I feel like it, standard wheels and tyres set up tubeless, Gorilla clips on the forks, Monki V cage under down tube when required. Mostly this was stuff I had lying around.
