Sounds great man...
Yeah I miss the un-interrupted seat post fun. My shore (and all Shores) suffer from the dreaded (by me) telescopic seat post action. My bike pedals up OK for a Shore, will definitely PM you next time I am in NV with the bike/Jeep. My father in law lives in Deep Cove, so I am out the Seymour way a lot.
We actually rode with all of the Banshee dudes a few times, they gave us the "tour" of the shore one weekend with Noel and crew from Knolly... good times, and a great scene over there.
i dont have a picture of my bike but its a Giant Warp DS2. it has a Marzzochi front fork on it with 160mm disc brakes. its kinda heavy for a full suspension but for 700 bucks about 5 years ago it was a steal.
yeaaaa giant warp! i just put a raceface ride xc crank/bb on my DS1 and it lost literally 3 or 4 lbs. the stock bottom bracket is JUNK. external bearings ftw! the bike is much faster now- put on some azonic platforms too. it is now officially running 0 stock parts except for the frame.
however, the bike has been seeing more time on the subie lately
Im bumping this because im going to be picking up my bike from home this weekend. Its an 03 (i think) haro X1. Full suspension, disc brakes, etc. I havent really ridden it in a few years and I am hoping to get back into it.
So lets see some more pics!

Im rockin the 2008? $400 Mongoose XR-Comp from walmart.lol
Sad to say, but it probably sees more dirt than yours.
I ride at least twice a week (weather permitting) if not more. Last friday i was up Ontario County Park in NY, it was cool, will be going back in the spring. Yesterday I was at Blue Marsh Lake near Reading, Pa. Its not technical but the 30 miles is enduring.
I have some nice trails around my house that i usually hit up everyday, not very challenging but do it for the workout. Some single track around but was built for dirtbikes, so that really gets rutted and all.
I stole this bike from my dad who bought it on sale, and I got into the sport by accident. I figured it would help keep my legs in shape for snowboarding, turns out i like it and plan on buying a better bike, or building up on the mongoose frame. The mongoose surprisingly held up with the abuse and neglect i put it thru, only thing i see needing replacing is the bottom bracket, as it is getting noisy.
I LOVE the demo man. It perfect...I set it up super soft..fast rebound and race it every year, then set it up for jumping and drops and stuff. being 36 pounds its super light DH bike!!! And the STP....its so fun to go rip up the town on night rides and the local skate parks. Lately I've been doing lots of dirt jumping and stuff on the STP at the new mountain bike park close to my house!!!!

I've already posted pics of my Specialized S-Works Epic and Allez Elite, but here are few of my latest purchases.
A few months ago I got the hair-brained idea that I wanted to find some super simple, old-school mountain bikes that I can use for riding around town and for family camping.
I picked up these two Hardrock's for almost nothing and have been thouroughly enjoying the simplicity of each one. I started racing back in 1990 so these things bring back a ton of early mountain bike memories for me.
