Was going to put my bike and speck on the site, but as it stands at the moment it dosen't really compare to anything already on!
I've gotta get some new wheels first.. and my fork.. and my crankset..brakes..then when ive got all that i'll get a better frame and then i'll post it!
cheers
Sounds like a big investment! you might as well buy a new bike

It cost me one 2002 AC Air Light...break the frame and get a 2003 AC-1 frame for warranty. Plus a used Sherman Firefly with an 8" rotor and a Marzocchi 20mm front hub, Sun Singletrak rims laced up beefy with 14ga straight spokes, a super shorty weyless stem and carry over all the other '02 AC Air Light components. Dunno...'round $2k.

In da water bottle...my uber secret trail nectar. 1 can of Piranha or Sobe Adrenaline energy drink...top it off with water, add a spoon of powdered Gatorade and a big drizzle of honey. YUMMY! Zip, zoom!

Now that the secret is out... expect it to appear on the banned substance list.

Oh well...it's the not so uber secret nectar. Seriously tastes great and keeps the energy flowing.

Here's the Sobe stuff:

It tastes better than most of those "energy in a mini can" drinks.

i have a pretty much stock P.3, except i slid out and destroyed my XT derailleur and i bent the hangar which is part of the frame, so now its getting turned into a single speed...

do you guys think that shimano would replace my derailleur on warranty? if so, how would i go about doing that?

No, shimano will not replace the derailleur on warranty, sorry I already tried that one As for the bent derailleur hanger, do you mean the silver piece that actually holds the derailleur or the part that the silver piece connects to? If it is the silver piece, you can get replacement ones from a lbs or specialized's website.

Hi,

Quick shot of my Trek 7000 before I go riding this morning.

Pretty much stock except for the extra bottle and cage and the Power Grips.

Won't be riding it long tho - got an 05 Epic Comp Disc on the way

Whats up guys, I'm new member here, but I thought I'd start by posting my whip first...Here's an original for all of you in the urban X scene.
DK Bicycles UX 26
its a pretty original bike rocking sun rim's rhino lite, with hayes mech. discs, 9 speeds in the back with a single front ring attached to DK chopsticks 3 piece crank set, and a marzochi(spelling?) dirtjumper 3 really gets this bike sick, if any of you are into the urban, dirt, or dual slalom scene check DK's first line of 26in bike at DKbicycles.com,
they've been good to me
