My first MTB in 10 years - Access 9.5 29er from Performance. The bike is great so far and the deal I got was even better - $435.00 out the door

as in late 90s rap slang for wheels. Like "Yo, check out my new blingin' 22 inch dubs!" I hope that helps.

Crud USA hooked me up with their Crud Catcher fenders. I went out and found some urban gnar for some pics:

Oops! Pwned again. Dang. Once a hillbilly, always a hillbilly I guess.

First time going through this thread.

heres my specialized rockhopper comp disc, it was an 07 with the silver paint job, but it was scratched, and needed some maintenance

so i stripped it down to the frame, painted it, replaced the cables, chain, grips, bb, and added some juicy 3's
i think it came out well
(havent cut the excess cable off yet, this is the first time i have changed cables, so im going to drop by the LBS to have them check i got it all right, and then hopefully they will have the ends to stop the cable from freying)

The components (XT derailleurs, SLX crank, juicy 7) are way too good for this bike.

New front wheel due to crash.

Thanks. A 1997 Cardiac bought new as a winter beater. The drivetrain has been replaced 3 times since then. The only orginal parts are the frame, fork and seatpost. A solid riding machine.

I did a 4 hour, 106km ride on it today(Sunday), combination of paved and gravel roads. It's a great ride. There will always need to be a fully rigid mtb in my quiver.
