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.

North Shore Bred bikes FTW!!!

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

All right, I'll play:

I have a converted single speed Giant ATX 760. Sweet old bike that made for a wonderful SS.
Shimano STX RC groupo, Rock Shox something or another fork. Cheap fun!

And yes, since the picture was taken I have stripped the reflectors and the ghetto plastic spoke guard. And added some Shimano clip-in pedals and a bashguard.

Very nice you all. Im jealous.

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.

Loving that this thread is still alive and well... nice rides man, love those Demo 7's.

I am still looking at the Banshee Rune as my AM bike, my Shore is still my Freeride machine, set up more as DH bike than AM. Man that Shore rails at Whistler... eats up the big drops too.

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!!!!

Bike setups:

2006 Marin Palisades Trail hard tail: Rock Shox Tora 318 fork, Shimano components WTB wheels. Currently converting this thing to a single speed super light weight bike.

Jeep setup: I have two Yakima bike rails along with two Yakima wheel forks mounted on Yakima corss bars on the roof. I have run this setup for about 3 years and have been very happy with it. Here's some pics from a recent Moab trip.

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.
