    Mmmm,Its been a long time,I still have the original hi-flanged wheels but the old "snake bellies" dri-rotted many moon ago.My buddy built these wheels and I run street tires on them.Everything else is original with the exception of grips,seat,rack.The chain rings are Bio Pace(?) and original.I had a seat hite spring(Cunningham?) but it didnt work well with the seat post brake hanger on this bike.I had "Moots handles" which were big wooden knobs on straight bars that bolted to the handle bars.Early aero stuff.I think the rims are"Ambrosia Durex" or something,still hanging in garage.I appreciate your comments,its hard finding info about these bikes.

    Newest addition to the fleet...an XL Santa Cruz Tallboy:

    [​IMG]

    25.06 pounds as you see it. X0 drivetrain with grip shifts, Edge Composites wheels on DT 350 hubs, Quarq powermeter cranks. Pretty light for a FS 29er with 120mm front suspension. I normally do XC stuff on a Highball (29er hardtail), but my distances are great enough that the lack of rear suspension gets to me at some places.

    nothing too fancy, but it gets me to work and back most days. 4 or so years old and gets ridden about 1500 miles/year.

    Did my first German MTB race today, 41 Km with 1,300 meters of climbing, start delayed due to lightning and rain, super soupy slop! It was a bear, a friend signed us up and chopped 5 years off my age (Thanks Bruddah!, Living Young!!!) but I'd have won my class if properly entered, no big but they also didn't have the T-Shirts we'd pre-ordered....

    Kona King Kahuna "Niner" was awesome, the bigger footprint was a real benefit in the sloppy conditions. Unfortunately I took the GoPro off before the start since the conditions were so bad....

    It's a good ride when you can't even read the markings on the tubes. :thumb

    Yeah, I'm sure it's a great bike, too. But they announced it just a few months after I got a new carbon Nomad, so that's going to be my bigger hit bike for a little while. Maybe next year I'll try a TallboyLTc.

    Not as smancy as most of the bikes on here, but I love my Felt F95.

    Perfomance has a closeout deal on blue Krylions. IIRC they're $16

    Me? My Quattro Assi fell out of the clamp (don't ask :bluduh) and now I have a dent in my TT. :baldy Not that the QA was worth a whole bunch, but now its worthless.
