Isn't it? It rides like butter and was sold by a reputable LBS, so it was not a Wally World model...

Just a Diamond Back Apex... that was headed for the dumpster.

Built it up before breakfast from the spare parts bin and went for a romp in the valley... thinking she's a keeper.



I think I really like rolling those fatties.

Good day!

Here's my ride:







Somebody asked me what type/kind of bike I have, I really don't know what to say.

I'd call it a hard-tail ATB.

Interesting apartment you have.

New addition to the jsharr clan stable.

2002 Gary Fisher Sugar 4 for Wade. Picked it up used from a shop in Fort Worth for $250. Deore LX drive train, Rock Shox Judy fork, Cane Creek rear shock, pretty darn clean. Bought by a Ft. Worth police officer, sat in his garage and then traded back in on a new bike recently. Just tuned up. Rides great.



With it's new owner.
