Here's mine. 2000 Specialized Rockhopper Comp FSR with upgraded 105 mm Manitou Xvert Super, Mavic Crosslink wheelset, Avid mechanical disc brakes, IRC Mythos tires and Selle Italia gel seat. It's heavy but a sweet trail bike, the suspension, brakes and handling are great.

I've got trek I bought used for $100. I keep it in the back of my pickup as emergency transportation just in case my truck breaks down.

Cool. I've always thought the Super V is one of the best looking bikes on the trail. Nice bike!

And its one thing to have a bike, another is how you use it.

I am going here next week.

Noting too special. I don't like clipless pedals, and I prefer front suspension only.

You guys have some nice hardtails but I'm old and have to have a shock under my A**.


Legs, looks like an awesome riding destination, hope you have a great time.

Thats pretty cool.

I have my old mountain bike from collage that I plan on sending up to Brasspile.
He will paint it in urban camo for me.

Picutred is the exact same bike with the exact same color as seen being used by "the red baron".

All the parts are original, minus the different set of Bontrager Jones Tires than it came with. Not to mention a different crank, since the original crank wore down to much to fit the chain a few years ago.

What exactly do you learn in Collage?

2003 Specialized Epic with Fox Fork

The "brain" really does work - like a hartail on the climbs, like a full suspension when you need it.

Here's mine. You don't expect my to peddle with a bad knee do you?

Whoa! An OD Specialized. Cool. If you like the frameset hang on to it. Specialized doesn't have anything constructed like it anymore (although the new FSR's are awesome). I spent $$$ on upgrades because I liked the basic frameset so well. The longer travel fork fixed my major gripe, the low bottom bracket causing slammed petals. The 2000 Rockhopper FSR was a great bike at it's price point. Thanks for the pic.

Specialized Stumpjumper with matrix frame. Nothing special after that. Picture at the top of Saddleback Mountain in Orange County after riding up 11 mile trail around 6%. I'm on the left, Louis, the actual bike racer amongst us on the right.

I can't post pics, but I got a 2003 Rockhopper Comp as a carryover this year. I've been riding it a lot during my layoff and am very happy with it. I've been planning to do an OD paint job on it, haven't gotten around to it. One thing's for sure, bikes have changed a lot since I was in highschool!

What exactly do you learn in Collage?




One thing I learned was correct grammar.

You should have asked, "What exactly did you learn in Collage"?
As in past tense.

I think,,,, he was actually refering to your spelling of College.

I've never been much of a mountain bike fan, but that could change I suppose.

I prefer to do battle with 18 wheelers, Winston Wolf type, cycling hating drivers, broken glass and rumble strips on either my Trek 5500 or 2300.

I wouldn't mind getting my 5500 frame and fork done up in some sort of urban digital camo job, but I'd get creamed for sure, and the driver would say "I never saw the guy".

02 Specialized Enduro Expert FST. Good all-purpose set of wheels. I use it for trail and downhill. Rear shock went TU pretty quick but the upgrade has been goin strong.

I was wondering if anyone else did that.

I keep my huffy in the bed of my truck. It's alternative transportation (even with the front rim bent, and the brakes only work when they want to) that I can be sure will still be in there when I get out of class.

ETA: You guys have some really nice bikes.
