I think it's too small for you, if you would like I'll take it off your hands! I'll even be so generous as to pay for shipping and handeling!

Nice . . . errrr . . . fleet you have there .

I thought it was time to post up some new pics of the 'small bike.' I LOVE the dropper seatpost! It just a cheapy Pricepoint house-brand one (that they don't carry any more) but it works as advertised. The rest is pretty much an amalgamation of former DH parts from past bikes on a hand-me-down frame from my son.

Picked up my 09' Gary Fisher Rig tonight. Only got to take it for a spin around the block and through a short grass trail, but man is it smooth! I'm coming from a cyclocross bike so I'm sure having suspension and cushy tires helps. SS is interesting. I feel like I am pedaling way too fast, even when I was riding that grass trail. Not sure if that means I will have to go to a harder gear/cog or not. Wanna ride on an actual mtb trail first. Either way I think I am in for some good times. Pictures tomorrow hopefully.

Haha, thanks. They're good for sitting. Don't know which moron put that bike in the way though.

Also, my shoes. Shimano M076's.

Yes, the 2010 model. The Filter line is essentially what has replaced the Talon line. Although I am led to believe only Australia has these two models...

I replaced the chain because it was just about at it's wear limit and based on the condition of the drivetrain and lack of wear to any of the internal parts I'd guess it has only seen 3000 - 4000 km max.

I spent a few hours cleaning and polishing the bike as it was pretty grubby when I found it.

Before:



After... with a new chain and freewhweel, new rack, and new grips as well as new cables.

Yeah, I couldn't find it on the US site. Reminds me of my kinesis a lot.
