    Dirtgrinder,

    There is nothing wrong with a mongoose. Heck everyone starts with a less expensive bike and mongoose is top of the line on the inexpensive rides..

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I've read some of the comments on bikes on the mtbr pages, and they even rip the nice bikes. Hate to see what they'd say about mine. This forum seems a lot more mature. Good riding everyone. Dirtgrinder

    More old thread revival.

    I'm having a lot of fun looking at all these old posts. Sorry Maelstrom, I'm just having a hoot of a time reading some of my old posts. :fun: :thumbup:

    No problem. Its just messing me up. Have you noticed you opinion changing much about bikes or do you still have the same beliefs?

    Rich: those are amazing looking Spin's you've got fitted. What's the story behind them? Did you have them lying around? Did you buy them for the bike specifically? Were they ex-roadie wheels you've fitted fatties onto (not sure if that's possible)? What happened to the other 29 'spokes'?

    Hey Maelstrom, Yes and No.

    The more I learn about bikes and the better rider I become, the more sophisticated my taste become. I tend to be a bike snob, but try rrrrrreeeeeeaaaaaallllllll hard not to.

    Eight years ago, I would never have considered a bike that costs $2,000 used, a "Good" deal. My bike budget was $500 - 600 max. Now, I've got a $2,200 Road bike, a $3,500 Mtn Bike (on the way!), my wife has a $3,500 Road bike and a $3,200 Mtn Bike, not to mention my BMX Cruiser and my wife's old GT Mtn bike with the Child seat. Heck, I'm looking at a fork that costs more than my bike in '96.

    Some of the things that have changed: I've realized the importance of a road bike and what it does for endurance training.

    I'm learning more everyday about the importance of nutrition.

    And yet, I still have a blast hitting a singletrack trail and pushing my limits.

    I've also learned that everyone starts somewhere. I love getting a friend into cycling and taking them to some new trails and seeing them have a blast.

    Some of the things that are the same: Most cyclists are great people, they enjoy being outdoors and having fun.

    Some people just don't "understand" our sport, or passion. Too bad for them.

    I'd rather be off-road than on.

    Dirt still feels good, but tastes bad.

    I never have enough time to ride!

    She is not quite done yet but here is a pic of the newest member of our family. I am still waiting for my cranks and brakes to arrive so I can take her out.

    Cheers to that a2. In many ways bikes are like computers (especially offroad tech). There is always advancement to make it better and I really have to watch myself or else I would go broke trying to keep up. I hade a similar problem 10 years ago in computers. I am still not to the level where I like a road bike but I can see it coming, definately.

    Slainte.
    Sweet bike. Makes me wish I had a spare 5000$

    Hey Mal., the only reason I was able to get this frame was the fact that I picked it up for 1000USD from my LBS. Granted it will pass the $5k mark when it is finished but it is not so bad since the spenditure(if that is a word) is spread out over time. If I had to drop the entire amount at once it would not happen for a very long time.

    That is a great deal for that frame, I have only heard good things about it. Are you going to use that for dhing next year? Or for freeriding?

    Actually, there is a winter dh series out here that begins, I believe, next month so I will be using the it for that. My Stinky will remain my main xc/freeride bike and the Stab will be strickly dh. I just picked up my casset for it, a Ti Dura-Ace 11-21 for 50 bucks. Seems the brakes I originaly planed on using will not be available any time in the near future so I just ordered some Hope M4's. If mt cranks ever show the bike will be done next week.

    Hey Kones. I am not a C'dale fan but that there sure is a perty one.

    It's great to see some of these old threads revived...

    I have a 96 Gary Fisher Hookoo E Koo which I use as my run around bike.

    My main XC bike is my C-dale Raven:

    Isn't it a shame that Cannondale stopped making the Raven? My friend has one and swears by it.
