Road:
Schwinn Paramount with 600 groupo and Matrix ISO's

Trail and just about everywhere else:
ProFlex 857 Elite Series with XT groupo, Mavic 220's, Girvin cross link front end w/ noleen coil over, carbon fiber rear swinger w/ noleen coil over. This bike rocks!

Arrow Fat Guy Bike

Santa Cruz Supa 8
- Shivers
- Hadley hub / double wide 24" rear
- 2.5 sticky frt / 3.0 gazzi back
- XT crap
- 3rd rear shock, progressive suspension works ok.
- Azonic steel cranks / 42 t RF + chainguide

My old Intense Spyder (old school, mac strut/short travel) Converted to a 1 speed by me. In my head I thought that a 24 pound full suspension single speed would be bitchen. And it was. For a minute. Then I just started riding the Salsa again. Now I don't ride at all.
Ok, Things have changed. I'm riding again. A lot. It's bitchen. Both bikes are seing some good miles. The Salsa is just as fast as I remeber it, if not faster. The Intense is now an 8 spd. I'm gonna go cook some chicken now.

here is my bike that i used to race in 1998 as a jr. expert. coolest bike i have ever rode.

the forks are out of date, but with 8.5 inches of rear travel, the bike can still hang with the big boys.

Enough parts in my shop attic to build 3 or 4 more mtbs.....

Just got a new Santa Cruz Blur, xt disc with integral shifters, carbon bar and post, King headset, Fox rlc 100, and 5th element. Very nice ride. Takes the big hits way better than I expected, climbs unbelievably well, very compliant on roots and ruts. Nice for the long rides. Get the anodized-no paint chips ever!

I just finished building my new bike.
It is the first time I have put a whole bike together. It was pretty fun and I have the same sort of feeling I get from working on my Jeep.

I weighed the bike and it is 21.5 - 25 lbs. I know big spread, but I was using a bathroom scale.

Been riding an AMP B4 but I really wanna get back onto a 20". I've still got my ancient GT with Pro Class rims and a Uni seat, but I don't think that's gonna last long under a 190 lb 30 year old. Also got some other old Trek 890's lying around that I may try to convert to single speed if I can't settle on a cheap 20"
