It looks like even my fat ass could wheelie that bike.

On my way home yesterday I saw one of these pass me going down the trail right near my house. After he passed I started wondering how the heck he handled the stop light.

With this bike, the trick is to try and not wheelie it. The wheelbase is real short, the bike is real tall. Not a bike to try and ride home from the bar after five beers. 20 inch Hookworm on the rear, 26 inch Hookworm on the front. I'm 6 feet tall and 195 pounds and I fit on it comfortably.

sorry Paisano, couldn't resist–no sidewalks here

Would you believe there's a city of 150K+ just to the right of the water?

I went out this morning for a bit of a ride and managed to bend my rear derailleur. Just after this photo too

Derailleur itself or the hanger?

Hey Gummee, think I'm going with the Allant. Butt ugly color but ride-able with no pain.

Thanks for the help!

I rode a dual air PIKE for a couple of years. I LOVED that fork, super plush and buttery but very stiff with the big axle. It totally eats up big rocks and rough trails. My bud still has it on a bike with a broken frame, I thought about buying it back from him and building another MTB. That fork hit the nail on the head for where I ride.

great looking bikes!

If you're running Shimano, PM me and we can discuss the Ultegra short cage I have no use for
