They had the wooden wheels but I am saving up for coaster brakes. And one of those bulb horns. I already have the clothespin and the baseball card...so I can sound like a Harley.

Please excuse the horrible quality of these phone pics. I've had it now for exactly two months and ridden 410 miles of single track. Its a fantastic bike that rides like a dream. Makes me want to ride every day.




The quality of the welds is incredible.

Like fine dark beer, it is quite stout.

Lake Tahoe Flume trail last summer. I need to spend some more time there to ride all the trails. I rented the Giant and I really liked it. I own a Niner EMD and both bikes are pretty similar.
