The blue one is my 2010 Gary Fisher Zebrano and the yellow one is my '92 Schwinn Frontier. I ride mostly paved paths and converted rail trails but I also do a little light primitive trails.




Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.

I had to sell my Scott Spark Elite 29er to fund my Jeep. I miss her dearly.

Hey bike enthusiasts..... Love my GC and the ability to slide my bike in the back at times instead of putting on a rack. Anyone know if the Saris rack is interchangeable from the JC to the Lexus SUV?

Love the paint, but living in Bellingham, you should get a full squish and go to Galbraith

Yeah, now I'm wanting a mountain bike, too, but I love the speed and light weight of this bike.

Here's an updated picture of the 7.3 with a gel seat, extra bottle holder, and fenders.

I know the gel seat looks really big, but it's sooooooo much more comfortable than the stock seat.

I was afraid it would break me before I could break it in.

I ride a Trek 2.1, which I got new last season. What a great bike, love it. May not be the biggest and baddest $9000 bike, but it's awesome for me.

I also have a Trek MTB, and a few older Fujis that I ride in poor weather.

Just picked this up today for a steal. I need to get some Avid BB7's and possibly a new fork, but she rides great. Did a quick 3 mile ride before it got dark (first time on a bike in 3-4 years) and boy I am out of shape, but loved it.

I ride. A lot. I've got my Specialized Roubaix and my StumpJumper (got rid of 4 other bikes once I got married, no room for them). Did a light day, 27 miles today on the roadie, because the trails are still too wet around here to ride them without doing major damage. Can't wait until they give us the "TRAILS OPEN" sign...

It's simply useless to argue on the interwebs. It's akin to arguing with a toddler. Doing so only makes you look silly and they always poop their pants.

About 5 years ago I got back into Mountain Bike Riding. Started with a fairly inexpensive GT to gauge how serious I was, then graduated to a Santa Cruz Nomad a few years ago:

And that's my son's Trek below it.

About a month ago I upgraded to a Santa Cruz Tallboy LTC:

My favorite trails are right near my house:
