The Cadillac of MT Bikes
Not even kidding!

This is my Mt bike that i spent the last 12 months building.

The frame is a KHS Free Ride/All Mountain frame built for Cadillac to market.

I bought the frame and rear shock for $400 and started to build. The only things that are original spec to the factory made bike is the rear shock and the fork.

-Frame 19" FreeRide/All Mountain
-Fork Manitou Nixon 6" travel 20mm thru axle
-Rear shock, Manitou Radium variable 4" to 6" travel adjustable.
-Wheel set, Custom built Halo Combat FreeRide/AM Black spokes white rims, 20mm Quanta front thru axle hub, rear Halo Combat quick release hub.
-Crank Tru-Vativ Firex
-Shimano SPD clipless pedals
-Shimano XTR gen2 rear Derailer
-Shimano LX front Derailer
-Shimano LX Chain
-Shimano LX 9 Speed Casette
-Shimano LX shifter/brake lever integrated combo
-Hayes Mechanical Disc brakes (Not hydrolic by choice) 6" rear 8" front
-WTB Speed V seat
-Specialized seat post
-Easton EA 30 handle bar
-IRC Mythos front and rear tires 2.1 (Upgrading to maxxis High Roller 2.3s soon)

This is my other baby. I finally finished it with its matching wheel set a few months ago, until then it made me crazy having mis matched wheels. LOL

I have not been as religious about getting out and riding the past year or so but i hope to use this to get my gut down and get back in to shape (not round). MT biking is a great past time for me and i hope to keep the blood flowing and continue to enjoy the XC trails and hit some of the FreeRide/down hill trials at the local ski mountains before winter.

Anyone else ride?

LOL, that would be sick if they made a mt bike setup.

I have over $1500 (edit more like $2300) invested in to this bike so i think its good the way it is for now. LOL.
