    I have a bike built by Sun called the Retro Classic
    [​IMG]
    It's similar to this model but it's discontinued and red. Eh, it gets the job done, makes pedaling Jamesburg's moderate grades a bit of a fun challenge, I can boastily say I've won an uphill race against a Geo Metro (running on two cylinders) and an ice cream truck in it, and I can also boast I can ride for miles without touching the handlebars :D
    (Without traffic, of course. 'Crazy, not stupid' is one of my mottos. I'm not out for a darwin award, like somebody nearby who rides a unicycle on the road)

    I'm extremely envious of you, Pako.

    My current bike is a Specialized Rockhopper, which I use for cross country and training rides, but it's not suitable for the other riding I do (a mix between freeriding and street), so I'm not saving up for either a Giant AC, or a Specialized Enduro. I'm probably gonna get the AC, seeing as the Enduro is another $1300 more expensive.

    I'll get pictures up once I've taken them of my current bike, along with the specs.

    I've got a 2001 (I think) Giant Rincon. Gold/silver/black. Retailed I think around $2k?

    I dunno, a long time friend of my family gave it to me as a moving away present. Said he got a new one. I'll look for pics, I know I've got them somewhere. I can't wait for the snow to melt. Then I can stop driving my nasty Bronco II and get back to jetting about on that Rincon. Such fun. I love biking. ^^

    Man everyone has a nice bike except for me. Right now Im using my sisters bike because my old bike was too small. It was my first bike that i had since I was like 6or7. Its not really much of a problem using my sisters bike, because Im the only one in my family that goes bike riding. But I think now it will be a problem. I started to grow an interest in mountain biking, and ever since I did, my friend who rides his bike with me for PE(we have PE homework) keeps blowing me off says that his shoulder hurts or his legs hurt or hes doing something.(I think its just becuase hes 200lbs and cant ride there and back, cause we living the mountains but not high mountains)So my mom knows I really want to try mountain biking, so she said this Sunday we'll go but then theres a problem. We only have 3 working bikes, 4 of us.The only way it'll work is if my dad doesnt come. If my family decides to go bike riding every weekend, Ill start saving up for a bike. I want a Specialized Demo, but I cant afford it, so I might get a Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc. My friends dad could get me a discount depending on what bike I get and how much it cost.Ill post up a picture of my sisters bike that Im using right now tomorrow if I dont fall asleep after school.(My sisters bike isnt soom pink Barbie bike. I just want to make that clear)

    Very nice all of you....

    Now that I have everything else I want, I am gonna be saving for MTB stuff again. If it will work, I am switching to 9spd. All I need is the cassette..... then probably a set of Profile cranks. I get discounts because I am sponsored. Then, Avid Brakes and levers. Brakes first.... then cranks. Then all new cables and a new chain. Grand total? About $380. I can wish! :)

    BTW.. all you weaksauce girls out there..... why wait until the snow dries. It is a pain in the ass but what isn't? Anyways, me and a friend do it all the time. Not to mention he was on 1.5" street tires in the snow on an old specailized rockhopper. Hubs: Chris King back and TNT front. Rock Shox Judy C that he got for free. :grumpy: Oh well..... I need a hardtail.... maybe me dad will split the price for a Specialized P1... :)

    Nice. :tup:

    Just for the hell of it... Does anyone know why the gears on bikes have always been on the right and the disc brakes on the left?

    I think it's too soft and bouncy it's like riding a cruiser. The rear shock is waay more active than my manitou sherman. I need a coil shock!

    All I can say is that you asked for this, don't laugh. (OK laugh at will :))

    [​IMG]

    It was bought by my great-grandpa, then used by my grandpa, then by my mom and now it's mine. A real historic!
