Speaking of Fuzzy Hall, I present the movie that had more influence on my riding than any other: Eddie Roman's HAMMERTIME.

I promised earlier to post my Rook when I got it together:

Astrix Rook 29er (unsure of year)
Reba Race fork
Bontrager Race Lite wheelset
Kenda Klaw 29 x 2.1
Thomson Elite layback seat post
Avid Juicy 7 disc brakes
Bontrager Race Lite carbon bars
SRAM x-7, Shimano XT derailleurs
SRAM x-7 trigger shifters
FSA crank 32/22

I took it for it's shakedown ride in the several inches of "global warming" we had last week. The guy who sold me the frame came up on me after I had crashed, and asked me if the BIKE was OK. Hee-har

I'm VERY excited, this is the first decent bike I've ever had. I bought it for entry-level mountain biking. From what I could learn about it, it'll do the job well. I know VERY little about bikes and probably should have done more research first, since I'm not sure how much it can handle.
Guess I'll find out .

2006 Norco Rival, 16" 16 speed.

My roommates 2010 Gary Fisher Wahoo Disc. It's his first bike since about 10 years old he said, He is one heck of a quick learner too, I have to hustle to stay up with him on the trails.

I'm debating getting a karate monkey frame, running it rigid until my budget allows for a Fox fork. Is the fork included with the frame or is the x amount extra? The rigid, that is.

I purchased mine as a complete, but they are also sold as a framset - frame and fork.

I don't know if all of those would be on my Christmas wish-list, but I wouldn't turn down a one. I want the Jones. I don't even care if it rides like warm French cheese. It's pretty.

Thanks. The Jones actually rides pretty nicely. It has a degree of vertical compliance that smooths out smaller bumps. It definitely doesn't feel like a full suspension bike, but is better than full rigid

I really wish I liked how the spaceframes looked. I know it is beautiful and is a work of art, its just lost on me. It should be right up my alley too.

nice fleet there, although you could use a DJ bike, short travel freeride bike, and a snow bike.

I expect news photos ASAP!

Not the best picture but I used my phone. I am still working on this, right now it has my bmx high bars on it but I am going to change those to bmx cruiser bars when i get a set and then I am going to add the rear shifters back on and hopefully be good to go. So in the end its gonna be a 1x7 speed mtbmx.
