Pedals, they were cheap while I decide wether or not to invest in a decent clipless system. Currently running SPD's on everything else.

Rear rim is an Aussie made Velocity, dont think it has anything to do withe other Velocity. The rim is immensely strong and not overweight, I brought my 18 y/o son a pair for his townie and he cant bend em.

Hussar, no idea, seems like a well made part. Guess I'll find out.

Pimp?

Those are 26in Velocity Deep Vs. I guess they are calling them the chukker now though.

Hello all, I just got my first "real" mountain bike!! I started riding MTBs when I was about 10, then when I discovered cars, I stopped riding. I picked up cycling again last year as a roadie (don't hate) and I finally got a MTB. I got an 89 (I think) Cannondale M800. It's only got a RockShox Hyrda 10, but the RD is a Deore XT, so I think I got a good deal at $50. No pics yet, but hopefully I'l get some up soon. Ya'll will probably be hearing more form me in the near future, as I live on about 300 wooded acres with roads cut through, and I live near some pretty good trails, including the Thomson factory trail.
Cheers!

What did you do to those tires? Even brand new tires don't look THAT good!

Man I wish there was anything like that in my area. Wichita isn't really known for its MTB scene though. Go figure.
