beautiful bike as it is....thanks for sharing the picks...

also, are you going to sale the rigid fork. I am looking for one for my winter commuter.

let me know.

Thanks man... yeah, its an 03 frame... i bought it last year, my lbs had it hanging around, and it was brand new, so i built it up from parts i had laying around.. The newer style boxy frames are pretty ugly in my opinion.

I will more than likely keep the fork, i might buy another frame, and make an SS to ride to work, or else i might give it to my LBS... i got a smokin deal on that fork, only paid $50 for it brand new, i believe they retail for $120

I admit I like it better as a rigid. But it's great either way.

Kickin' it old school, POS style. '91 Trek 800, "custom build" High tensile forks and stays, plain gauge CrMo main tubes. I need a tank for the rocks of Allamuchy. Most redeemable parts are the wheels: old school Araya RM-20 laced to Deore DX hubs. They ride smooooooth. Deore XT FD, Exage 300LX RD, Nashbar cranks and pedals, Deore DX thumbies, Kool-Stop salmons on Alivio cantis, Ritchey Speedmax so I can ride the pavement to the trails. Total damage: $80.

My first MTB since I got my Muddy Fox courier when I was 11. I decided to pull the trigger after going MTB riding with my mates and struggling with a 21 year old bike that was a little, shall we say, small?!



Sorry the picture is pants...

Your Gunnar makes me weak at the knees. Do you ride it rigid or suspended most of the time?
