      i know....
      except he spent about $1500 more for his marathon.

      the worst part is that a couple other people we ride with also have specialized....that's gonna look even cuter
      i was actually checking out the cannondale RZ w/ lefty and didn't want another trek fuel and nobody had a BMC fourstroke in my size so i went with the epic carbon.

      Damn, I think he got ripped off then. They didn't include those sweet reflectors like you have.

      Let's argue this the American way; volume, proximity, and repetition.

      Year 2000 Trek 6000. I've changed the tires and seat up, but it's been going for 11 years without an issue. Only routine maintenance necessary (and I'm really bad about doing it lol) I ride three time a week in the National Forest around here. I'm taking it up to the shop to have the fork replaced soon - I think it's blown.

      It could use a good service and another set of brake pads - but the bike has never let me down. I did 8 miles all trail yesterday and she never let me down.

      This is my current 'do it all' bike.

      I have a new frame and a mass of new components ready to begin a new build, but until the new BB arrives there is no point stripping this one.



      The frame is a steel '00 Giant Boulder SE.

      There are very few original parts left - the BB, cranks, shifters, seat, seat post and a few minor parts are pretty much it.

      Rather than upgrade for the sake of it, I have replaced things that broke or added things for comfort.

      Current Spec

      Frame - Giant
      Front Wheel - LX hub, Sun Sub IV rim, hand laced.
      Rear Wheel - LX hub, Asym rim, hand laced
      Gears - mix and match of parts 3x7 (22/32/34) and (11-28)
      Forks - Surly 1x1 rigid
      Brakes - XT front, LX rear
      tires - 26x1.25 slicks

      Most every part has come from the bargain table at various bike shops so it looks are a tad challenged.
      The above post is probably dripping in sarcasm.

      I take a lot of photographs

      Bought my first full suspension bike. `06 Rocky Mountain Element 70 with a bunch of upgrades. The bike brought out the 'hero' in me during the first single track session today ...shortly followed by the "zero" my kneecap scored when battling a tree trunk (ouch). I blame my 12 year old mentality combined with a mid-40's body.

      Love the bike, but will need to cut the steerer.

      Nice rides.

      I've been eyeing the Cannondale Flash 29'er. I think that would be it, if I was to ever get another mtb.

      This is my upgraded 1992 Specialized S-Works M2. My upgrade started because my fork was bad. I love this bike. It rides even better with the upgrades.

      thanks lee. i was considering a 29'er but i think it would make me look even shorter than i am
      i wanted another cannondale w/ a carbon lefty or a BMC fourstroke but 40% off the leftover 2010 epic carbon got me.

      I just bought this used....so its not new but new to me. This is my second bike my first being a Specialized rockhopper back home in Canada. This one I bought while in europe for school as a all in one bike. The only thing I dont like on this one are the shocks, everything else is great and I like it more than the Spec.
