Old-ass Shimano 636 freeride pedals, chain is rusty.

I got this for a steal from a guy in Salt Lake City who was making the jump to 29'er land. Purchased the whole bike (and a number of tires, and extra fork) for a little more than the cost of the frame. It has taken my riding to a whole new level. I can do drops and rollers that I never could before.

I'm going to try racing it this year, SS-open class.

Changes since the photos: On-One Mary bars, which rock. Numerous wheel truings (freeriding on a hardtail is fun, but can cause problems). ODI Lock-On grips.

This ride looks like a ton of fun. Hows she ride?

Like a Champ

This one is tons of fun. Not nearly as heavy as she looks, and solid as a rock. The only mechanicals I've had with it were blowing up the rear tube. BTW, changing the rear tube on an SS with an EBB is much, much easier than a geared bike.
