    that is a pretty nice bike, but why would you even think of putting grip-shifts on there?

    Some people (my girlfriend included) think they're the shizznit. I don't get it but it's not like I have to ride the thing

    I've never had a ride with anything else, so I have no opinion - they work fine for me. In this case, they were installed by default (no money to change, and no instigation to do so)

    and this is what started my love for mountain biking back in 1995 i was 10, and in the life of this bike i rode the hell out of it.

    Now for a question do you think it would be worth it to revamp it and give it new life? Or should i just leave it?

    That depends what kind of bike you want. I stripped mine to the frame and rebuilt it last month, and now it's exactly how I like it.

    Hey bkrownd, I was just talking about those type of tires the other day. Who made them, that was the one thing I couldn't remember. Oh, and major jealous that you still have a Scrambler.

    My BMX Scrambler was stolen in 1981, but its memory lives on. I don't even have a picture. You can see the tires very well in that picture? They're the stock 1994 Cheng Shin tires, with the connected center tread, still only half worn after 10 years of commuting. I haven't seen any with that tread pattern recently.

    i should have more to come

    What do you notice is so much better about the seat post?

    Here's the most recent picture of my rig; new grips, tubes and a lizard skins chainstay protector.
    (and with the new DH tubes, this thing weighs in at almost 40lbs instead of the stock 35.5lbs )

    MAn, mine compared to all of yours is ... not at all that great. Considering I'm only 15 and have no job... eh... I still regret not buying the Aluminum frame=(. I just didn't want to wait a couple of more days possibly a week to get the bike but... this ones mine...

    http://www2.trekbikes.com/Assets/Bik...ile84_3412.jpg

    Everything Stock. But either way it's my first Mountain Bike so I guess you could call this just a bike to warm up on and hopefully when I get a job I'll make money fast enough to get a Cannondale real quick=).
