Yeah... I remember you saying something to that effect when you got your puffing self up to each point I waited for you on the climbs.

Ride tomorrow? Can't - rebuilding the back room and I have to put a new floor in. Door too. And it's raining...

Stop inviting me over to your house.

Man, you've been working on the back room for a week now. Is that were your life partner is moving

Yea, you were killing me on the climbs, but we won't talk about the downhills

I love the mountain bikes, but try to borrow my friend's single speed scorcher around town when I get the chance. There's something way fun about having to ALWAYS pedal

Maybe those 29ers are starting to get to me

How 'bout this one. Santa Cruz Bullit with 6" of rear travel. Marzocchi Shiver DH fork with 7.5" of travel. 8" Hayes hydraulic disc in front with a 6" disc in the back. Full XTR with spare DH crank and MRC chain guides. White hubs and Mavic DH hoops. Intense 2.75"front tire with an Intense 2.35 rear. Hauls Ass! and with an optional triple I can even grunt up a few hills on my way to sweet downhill! You guys ride Downieville at all? I gotta tell ya, if you are near Shasta go to Mt. Ashland and ride the Warp Drive trail. It ain't North Shore but it will do.

1997 Specialized Ground Control Pro! The year before they came out with the four bar linkage... thats right 3+ inches of travel oh yeah.

In my opinion, its one of the last true XC full suspensions. With a Riesse Genesis rear It has no bob at all, but is really smooth.

I love it when people are like that thing is a piece of shit. Who would rattle can their bike flat black. I reply I would, and it weighs 23 pounds. How much does your shiney piece of shit wiegh.

I want to sell it now... I don't really like XC that much anymore. Its just too much work all togather.

Later
TJ

Hey Vova! That bike of mine wheighs about 40 pounds. To tell ya the truth though, I don't care what it weighs. If I was worried about that I would still be riding my GT Zaskar LE at just under 24 pounds. The Bullit I own works so well you would have to ride it to understand. If I want a light bike that climbs I usually ride my cyclocross bike anyway. I think what we need here is a big fat ride in the spring. If you people ride mountain bikes like you wheel then I've got some carnage for ya.

Sounds like a nice ride. It's just that where i ride i have to either climb in or out of the trail.
I would like to ride a bike like yours at Downieville or Moab
Why wait till spring to ride?

Does 12 years racing (2 living at the OTC and racing with the National Team) count?
