      Mountain bikes are good when you are going on hard and rough way like hill this time it is very useful. But it is very expensive so it's hard to buy for middle class person like me. But I am crazy for is so in future I surely buy it. Any ways all photos are awesome and fabulous.

      Not the best picture (just walking by in the garage). Mine is the Trek 8000 in the front, and the wifey's is in the back. Just picked her up a new Trek Marlin 29'er last week. Luckily she rides the same size as me, so while she's gone for a couple weeks I can put it through it's paces on some trails

      Hey guys,
      For the 2006 GF Big Sur, I finally want to drop the V-brake wheels (don't ask...) and go with the Mavic wheels and Schwalbe tires I just got in Germany. Rocket Ron up front and Racing Ralph rear sounds like the best combo?

      Oh well. '05 called...



      These Mavic Crossrides aren't the lightest, but for the $200 price, they sure helped on the looks, and I shaved off approx 350 grams per wheel.

      It's maybe not considered a mountain bike anymore... but anyway. I started building up my old P.1 that I've had banging around in the garage for awhile. I decided to mimic the design style of the cruiser I built up a few months back.

      haha, I'm not really into the whole fixie thing... If I build something else it'll be a BMX.

      The cruiser is a $80 department store find with a respray and 1 new tire.


      Mounted some mechanical disc brakes and finished up the P.1 last night. Rides pretty nice, feels solid. I need to reroute the brake cables though.

      I tossed it on for the lulz cause my brother suggested it, and i had the parts lying around. not going to actually ride with the rim brakes, obviously. it was more for his amusement.

      A shot of my K2 Zed 2.0 Hardtail.

      It's a little older, been a great bike though. Has Tectro brakes/shifters and some other goodies.

      Had it outdoors yesterday.

      Swapped over to my spare set of beefy tires. Contrary to how the front tire looks, it rolls pretty fast.

      terrible picture but I picked this up last night:



      my first mountain bike since I was a kid. Can't wait to get it in the dirt.

      Picked up this Klein from a buddy over the weekend. Don't want to pass it up for $400. Been a few years since I rode so I am tryin to get back in the seat. So far I have about 10 miles on it and it feels amazing. Might ditch the older Sid and get a newer one or a fox. And converting it to XTR instead of XT
