    New NC crew member...

    Hambone III. This little guy has mad skills! Right now he's rockin' it on a Scott 20" machine.

    Sweet. My brother is starting to ride too. He has a Trek Mt. 250 and is getting faster and stronger. Downhill is his biggest problem, he never gets off the brakes and went over the handle bars once. How old is he, my bro is 9.

    Might just be the result of downsampling it to a petite 95k.

    What I like most about Hambone III is that he never posted a "what bike should I get?", "what size will fit me?", etc., etc. thread.

    Congrats. He looks like he's having fun.

    My daughters are the same way. The only criteria my daughter had for her new bike was the colour (blue) and that it had to have a bottle cage with bottle.

    Hmm. How old is your daughter? Do I see a match here? Hambone III and Santiago Jr.??

    Photobucket automatically resizes photos when you upload them to a 'web resolution.' When it does this it strips away alot of pixels and leaves you with the visible "jaggies" in the fine detail.

    I think when the photo has already been manipulated and downsampled to your own taste in photo editing software before upload, Photobucket is less heavy-handed.

    Yeah, I crop and size them before I upload them. It could be I just will never get the photo thing.I have fun no matter what they look like.
