Sorry I meant mix of SRAM X-7 and Shimano SLX. The triggers are SRAM and so is the RD. The FD and cranks are shimano. Tw guy I bought it off was a bike mechanic and he has this tuned so nicely with snappy shifting.
In fact I'm off to ride it now
Thanks Rob, the scarcity of X9 front mechs in the configuration I need (triple, low mount, top pull) means I'll probably keep the SLX unit when the rest of my Trance goes X9.

Hi guys, here are my two bikes. The first is a fixed gear bike I built when I was living in Edinburgh, Scotland. It's made using an old italian frame and rides silently. I have since brought this bike back to Australia. Note the tartan seat
This is my latest purchase, a 2011 GT Avalanche 1.0. I just bought this today and am looking forward to many years of riding pleasure : )
Minus purple pedals / grips etc
actually you've reminded me Kenzo, i might take those off now
nice specialized too, Phil. what are those pedals?
Speedplay Frog, I already use Speedplay Zero's on my roadie and was keen to try their MTB pedal. I think the general consensus is people either love or hate them, so far I'm in the love corner as they've not let me down (yet?).
The epic is definitely one of the more beautiful bikes out there, really like the camber too.
Very cool bike slow6. Great photo too.
I haven't seen XT thumbshifters in a long time. I upgaded to a set of those from LX rapidfire in 1994 and loved them. Then I went to gripshift in 1996 and hated it.
I hadn't visited this thread for a while and as I scrolled down to Astro's steel fixie, I thought "Gee I'd like that" and then the GT hardtail "Gee I'd like that", Jules' Anthem 29er "Gee I'd like that", Phil's Epic "Gee I'd like that", Woody's Trance "Gee I'd like that", and Slow's kick in the guts gorgeous vintage Stumpy "Gee I'd like that" .
It's rare when you pop a web page open and see such a variety of bicycles that are soooo desirable.... Yes, even the tartan saddle...

The first one. It was assembled for races:
The second one. It for trainigs:
Third one. For simple rides in forest.
And the last one. This bike I was assembled for my son.
All components on the bicycle the son had selected by himself (with my little advice )
But I think that this collection not full because it without a hardtail.
Yes, I'm from Russia.
You understood this by my English?
Of course, we have both.
In the forests trails to suit all tastes. Every weekend, if I'm not going for the race, usually I ride with my son in the forest.
Me and my son are taking part in amateur races.
Last year I took part in eleven races.
Here is several photos:
Tovarkovo. Kaluzhskaya Region.
Zelenograd. Moscow Region
Krasnogorsk. Moscow Region
After this race I had to completely service my bike, because it was in a terrible condition.
This year, in second half of March, I'm flying to Turkey to prepare for the new racing season.
Your english is fine it was the buildings in the background.
I add a hardtail to my collection on Wednesday.
Are 29ers popular in Russia?
