I am super stoked at how nice of a ride my Giant Reign has been, though I would love to build up a Nicolai Lambda ST with a Marzocchi 888 for the big, nasty stuff.




I'd also love to build up a fixed gear Surly 1x1 or Steamroller to bike to work...

i think i'd build a bullet-proof carver 9 speed. not sure if i'd go full squish or hardtail. but certainly something that i could beat the hell out of. none of this high-zoot light weight crap.

Holy crap, dude. Look how high that bottom bracket is. Grove cranks as well? What year is that from?

You need a picture of an EWR to keep it company.

the links are all flucked up there because of the frames, so not sure what you're talking about. land speed record ona mtb is over 100mph(downhill). land speed record on a bike is like 154mph, on the salt flats, drafting a vehicle.

i thought myles rockwell was the one who hit 63 there on a c-dale?

remember that classic match up between him and beneke in the eliminator? where rockwell actually stopped to try and make beneke pass?
