Actually I ride a pretty crappy Nevada "ruby mountain". Guess not to many have heard about it. I'm planning on changing to a Magmaa though. Guess no one has heard of that one either, but it's a really good titanium bike.

I ride a "thing" called "Alpine Kenosha P***". My mechanic says it's a good bike despite being pretty much a no name. It's got Shimano components and is very sturdy. I got it in 1989--it has the bio-pace "technology" (facinates people to see that egg shaped chainring thang!). I love it, it's my mule and even when I finally save up enough to get my dream bike, I'm still going to take her out for a spin, for old time's sake.

I'm looking forward to chatting with all of you!

I ride a Trek 7300 Police Edition from '94
I have done quite alot of mods since I bought it new in '96. Got a great deal since I worked in the shop that had the bike. I love it dearly, no welds!! They used to, for a couple of years, bond the frames instead of welds(aluminum that is).


Anyhoo, Easton Elite Program Tubing, LX/XT, Paul Motolite Brakes, Avid Ultimate Levers(w/"v" chip) and Manitou SX Ti ('97 model).

I am in the market for some new wheels, mine are bullet proof Trek Matrix, that aren't so tank-like heavy.

I am also, next week, buying some lights. I want to ride to work, second shift, and I would like to race a solo 24hr this spring. So, rather than wait and buy 'em all at once, I'll get a handlebar mount first. The helmet mount can wait till it gets closer to spring.

Soon I will be buying a new saddle, I am up in the air right now between Terry Ti Race and Selle San Marco Bontrager Race Day. If anyone has an opinion on these two or others please respond!!

arjaitheoriginal, Hey, what 24hr race are you going to do? i have watched two 24hr races at moab, thought about putting together a team, but now im thinking about doing it solo, would be an awesome thing to try. I cant help ya wtih the saddle choice, i have a leather avocet O2 saddle that i love tho, great saddle if you can get a deal on it (i wouldnt pay $99 for it, i got it for $45 used)

Good luck with your choice

Hey SnoTurtle, one of my friend in Montreal have an almost brand new 1999 Santa Cruz Bullit for sale at a very cheap price. He ride 2 times with his bike in Bromont.

Currently I ride a '96 Gary Fisher Marlin, but WILL be buying a new frame this year. My new ride will be either a Teesdale TomET, or an Ibis Mojo. Either choice will be decked out with my current upgrades to my Fisher, well over $1000 worth of componentry.

I ride a Marin Eldridge Grade, and its amazing value for the money - LX drivetrain, the very light chro-moly frame is awesome. I really like it and If I had enough money I would go back to Marin for a Full suspension, and a road bike they really make good bikes.
Is anybody here a racer in Ontario Canada, if so I would like to talk to you e-mail me!I'm interested in getting into racing, thanks

I'm a Cannondale fanatic I've got a F5000 team replica (21lbs with discs), a Super-V 900 (also with discs, but certainly not 21 lbs) and an F900 hard-tail (25lbs with discs)... I'm not rich, I just have nice bikes and a really crap car Anything with fat tires is cool, but cannondales are f-a-s-t

Alumminum is real too! :-)

I ride a '97 Klein Mantra Comp. for singletrack and a '99 Specialized FSR Enduro for faster DH/DS type of trails.
Both are upgraded to "XT, and have CaneCreek AD-10 rear and either a Manitou FS-Ti or SX front shock.
These are fast bikes, although definitely not what I would consider "race-ready". They are very dependable, and do not require daily adjustments and maintenance routines.

Re:kind of bike

I was looking at my bike and I have XT cranks not LX and i also have judy rock shocks in the front none on the rear due to me not being able to do so good on hills I'm more of a downhill rider...
