Now that we have the chance to put our bikes on here, I thought I'd start off with my Trek 8500...

Does anyone else have photo's of their bikes out there to share?

Rich

Hey Rich,

I like black bikes!, just like Henry Ford said, "i like al colors, as long it`s black"
The little chainwheel on the backbones of your bike ? What's the meaning of it and did you have advantage of he device or not?

Just curious,

Mark b.

Hi Tool freak and Joe!!!

Yeah, the little gizmo on my chain stay is called a DCD, and although I don't ride too much downhill (well, I do live in Kent...he he) it keeps my chain nice and tight when the going gets rough....

Joe, your Cannondale looks really nice, I bet she gets a good thrashing at the weekends eh...!!

How do you find the Carbon fiber thing?

Cheers..........................Rich

D'oh!!! I accidently hit entered before I was finished.

Buddy, nice bikes. I'm not familiar with Avanti. Is that an European bike company or a small custom builder?

Cool bikes buddy,

I must admit, I haven't heard of Avanti either, looks real nice though as does the GT Cross bike...I'll try and download my Alan cross bike on here at some stage..

Take it easy,

Rich

Rich,
Thanks! I like the way the KHS is setup agressive enough geometry for someone who is 6' 2" and rides a 18".

Hi Hunter,

Yeah, I like small frames too .... my Trek is 18" and I'm 6ft...I think it helps me chuck the bike around a bit more, and ofcourse it's a tad lighter than say a 20" bike would be

Have a great weekend mate

Rich

This is a picture of my 98 FSR. I sold her a little while ago. I sure do miss her. She was a great riding bike. I built her up from a frame only and used mostly RaceFace components, and Shimano XT stuff. The fork was an older FS-Ti, that worked super smooth. For some stupid reason, I wanted a new bike, but my FSR will always be my favorite.

Hunter,

That's a great looking Breezer. You don't see too many around. Is it steel?

OK, OK, I know it's not a Klein, Specialized, C'dale etc., but it's my first and I had to start somewhere. Been riding the heck out of it for about 2 years and all I've worn out is tires and brake pads. Works for me! But I'm still dreamin' about a better one...

Hi there matey...

I like Mongoose bikes...they make a great line...... one word of advice though...ditch those reflectors!!

You's be surprised how much weight they shave off the bike!!!
