    I wandered into the MTB forum a few days ago and checked the "Post your rig" thread, and this was the first one that I saw... I just turned around and left the forum, figured nothing's gonna top that.

    WOW! That looks good but would look so much better as a singlespeed

    dude! never mind that ebay mess...you want to deal with a BFSSFG type, right?

    i've got a 26.8 available:

    $10. scratches extend ~1/4" about min. insert line...will probably be totally hidden.

    had it on this for a while, but it was too much.

    finally, not that the stumpy ain't hott, but if you want to see some real retro garage queens you might want to check these guys out:

    kalloy - pffft.

    There have to be a ton of "classic" mtbs that have all the good stuff - Ringle, wtb brakes, magic motorcycle, cook cranks, kooka cranks, bar ends, onza clipless, syncros, etc, ad infinitum.

    The bike pictured is a 2000-2001 aluminum rockhopper. Hardly untoppable, despite the loud-ass colors.
    Still a cool ride.

    In my dreams: Yeti ARC in team colors with anodized teal parts.
