that seat is a temp. i have my wtb freeride coming in

Nice setup. You've got some nice DH equipement, so all I can say is thank god it's not FS.
I mean wouldn't a commuter type setup work better?
Unless you've got some nice urban jumps or stair gaps, in which case have at!
EDIT: And just my curiosity, what brakes?

Looks quick, yet durable. Sweet ride!
you're going to have more fun going to class than i ever did!! nice ride
can you manual and wheelie so you can show off on campus?
That is a great bike lol and would make for a fine downhill\freeride hardtail with some new tires, dont you think its a little overkill for a campus commuter though

Man, that's a tank! You're gunna have a blast taking that thing around campus.
07-02-06, 06:13 PM
oh ya it will be a blast, the brakes are hayes mx1's cuz they were cheap, it has dh componets because i took them off my v-10 since i do not need a dh bike at college.
It won't be long before you start stair gapping at your campus... and with that bike who wouldn't :)
Enjoy your bike.

... since i do not need a dh bike at college.

And corey...he broke his bruiser frame too.

Sweet ride man...I'd keep the V10 though:D

nothing special? i could only dream of owning a ride that beautiful :(
Buy a good lock :)
yess! i would buy like 3 or 4 locks for that thing.

Excellent advice. My son won't be taking his hardtail Trek to school. First, the elements will take their toll on the bike, second theft of anything with a nice suspension fork. Instead he's taking an old Trek 800 with all the QRs removed.
PS: That is one really nice ride you've got there.
07-02-06, 10:06 PM
thanks guys, its really nothing special most of the componets are cheap, but it will be fun to cruz around on. also i am keeping the v-10 but might be selling it in the near future so i can buy a new video camera.
07-03-06, 10:20 PM
That is sweet dude. I totally dig it.
And corey...he broke his bruiser frame doing stair gaps too...
Too many broken bruiser frames... its a friggin epidemy :roflmao:
hey jason, did you get your warranty bruiser frame already or what?
07-04-06, 10:03 AM
Stupid trek never got back to my lbs about it.
07-04-06, 10:19 AM
I broke my bruiser landing a bad 360, sweet frame tho I rode the hell out of it while it was running
07-04-06, 10:24 AM
^^^ That's corey. We should get some pics of his broken bruiser. It looks awesome. He's got it up on his wall, with stickers ALL over it.
Looks good, let us know when it gets stolen!
Awesome bike! Riding to class is probably a motivation for you everyday to wake up. I too would commute on bike but scare that thieves are gonna strip my bike clean. A set of QS lock (front, back, collar) is about $54 at a local bike shop. So.. yea... :P

i dont think anyone will be walking around with a set of allen wrenches to steel the front whel but you never know i have a good lock
