Yup, I for sure think so. Love the way it rides. Comfortable enough. Super stiff BB for climbing and super stiff HT for descending.

No luck getting just a frame though. Had to buy the Rival build and replace most of the parts.

Na, only stuff that's still stock are the cranks, derailleurs and brakes.

Here's my main two rides:

The green one is my 2010 Novara Randonee, and the Blue/cream one is a late 80's Bianchi. By the time I got my hands on it, the original celeste had been sand-blasted off, so I painted it myself and built it up into a distance bike. I've got a few more, but just don't have pictures.

STOLEN FROM OLD SACRAMENTO 7/16/11
http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6146/...0fffc7f5_b.jpg
I know its a far shot to get my bike back, but I must try everything, the bike has been passed down to me and it means too much to just let it go without a fight.

Stolen!!! 7/16/11 approx 7:00pm, @ Old Sacramento. Really Heart breaking. Please Call the police if seen, or trying to be sold. Or e-mail me @ ExcellenceForSure@gmail.com Thank you.....

1998 S-Works M2 Specialized "Grabber Green" with RED "Answer:Manitou" Forks; APC/APR wide leather seat. Has red/blue/black stitching.
"Spring Preload knob does not work, has Specialized pouch mounted under Seat, Ritchey/Ritchey Stem"

(Just like this bike but in "Grabber Green" / Kawasaki Green")

Recently decided to give carbon a shot but I'm sticking with my Ti bike. Wilier is now up for grabs if anyone wants it locally

Definitely shared. I have my own seatpost & saddle, so that's an easy adjustment, and Chris remembers the measurements on the aerobars. Otherwise it fits us both nicely.

A steal from my LBS - "11 StumpJumper 29"
Already got about 50 miles on it.
Completely stock except the riser bar(not in the picture, only got it today).
Since I don't do that much of mountain biking, next upgrade will consist of tires. Oh, and a cycle comp =)
Don't have much time this month, and hopefully by the moment I have it I'll become aware of the good routes in the area.

Interesting recumbent. How's the handling? No front brake?

Handles very nice, especially compared to other Front Wheel Drive 'bents. It's a very fast bike, with good climbing characteristics. I love it!

And, yes, the front brakes are behind the cranks in front of the wheel.

Those twisty, car-passsing descents are exactly the time when I'm happiest to have it.
