So my work has this program where you get raffle tickets every time you ride your bike to work. Usually the prize is $100 cash but in honor of bike to work month there were all kinds of prizes in this month's drawing and I won this:



I am pretty stoked. Just gotta buy a few bits and I will be stripping my Bruiser to outfit this baby. Woohoo. Just thought I would share.

This is true. It will probably cost me 100-150 buckaroonies to do the build. Maybe more. Gotta get brakes too.

Nice, I wish I got raffle tickets for biking to work. I'd rack up soooo many.

Great win! I'm going to go in on Monday and suggest to the president of our company that we have a program like yours (maybe different prizes, since we're not a bike parts company). Think what might happen if everyone reading this forum did that next Monday morning!

No just I thought bruisers came stock with a 150mm fork, didn't think everything would be able to transfer over to that Zion frame. Maybe I'm wrong.

Ok.
I will need a new seatpost/collar, brakes, wheels and probably a bottom bracket but everything else should work. I really don't have it set up as a dirt jumper. The fork is kind of inappropriate but it will do for the time being.
