Picked up a new camleback today.

Retired the Blowfish, repalced it with a Camelback Chaos, before I had it ready, did a little bit of modifying to it.

Out: The 2 liter bladder

In: 3 liter bladder.

that's wicked cool! you guys would laugh at my set-up. i think it is one of the first camelbak packs (not sure how old company is)....but because my stuff was stored for so long i don't really want to get a new one because there is nothing wrong with it....just out of style.

it is from around 1994 and was called the NARROW GAUGE i believe. do any of you remember that model from way back?
(modern bladder by the way)

I remember when your Homegrown came out... the gold one with the "Enlightend" aluminium. Sick bike for sure.
I dont really like camel backs. I like to have a bigger bag; probley from my bike messenger days. I rigged a bladder in my Chrome Metropolis bag. Been runnin strong for years now.

When you say retired, what do you mean exactly?

I've never herd of KOT, but that frame looks a lot like the Norco Evolve.

As for bieng too old, you can never be too old to do trials. It all depends on what types of lines you want to do. Just never give up.
You can typically find a used trial bike for around 300 and up. Mod or Stock.
Check out some of these bikes:
Echo Bikes
Adamant Bikes click on A1 Bike (Im going to buy one of these later this year, just debating between Blue, Green or the Gold. Their all so beautiful)
