I am a born again MTB guy, a long while ago I had a lively GT that I rode around the mountains of the Olympic national forest back in Washington state. After being in China for several years I am getting back into it. Just put together a new bike (which I will be inquiring about here soon) and am getting fit again for a ride from Chongqing to Tibet to Yunnan to the bottom of Vietnam.
So hello to all my compatriots in Seattle and hello to the rest of you.
Just for fun here is some bike porn. I dont know what brand the frame is (which is what I want to find out here later) but its a nice ride.
Some basic info about it:
Carbon frame. SRAM X9. Avid Elixer CR (with the aluminum pulls). FSA Carbon handle bars and seat post. ABR carbon riser. Manitou R Seven Pro fork. Mavic Cross Ride rims. WTB Devo Thinline saddle. Larson TT 26x2.0 tires. Bunch of other stuff. A good lightweight bike for roaming the Chinese countryside.
