Nice bike other then the fact I fell on it and gave me a scar that will stay with me forever.
I have a bike built by Sun called the Retro Classic
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
(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)
here is my bike , i use it for dirt jump and for freeride...
Fork:marzocchi bomber z5
frame:2002 norco 125
rear derr: Deore
Front Derr:None i only have one speed in the front
funn brake lever
axiom rise bar handle bar
and other thing...
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.
Heres a picture of the bike I'm getting, its a Trek 4300.
When I get it I plan on going for a 40km ride, from my dads house to my mums house, stay at mums for an hour or 2 and have food, watch TV, go on computer and then hed back to my dads.
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)

Oh and dont forget the 'export' quality baby blue paint job that looked good when i done it but now looks like ****!
Oh and sorry if this was a all MTB thread....
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. Oh well..... I need a hardtail.... maybe me dad will split the price for a Specialized P1...
Heres my bike. My digital camera's batterys run out so i just took it with my phone.
I recently bought a new front wheel(you can see the different colour wheel) because
i hit a kerb at........no joke 30.2 MPH!!! i really fu**ed up my hands and obviously buckled the wheel.
Its been 3 weeks and their still not fully healed.
And heres the pics of my hands(not recomended for those of you with weak stomachs)

my banshee scirocco
xt disc brakes
xt rear mech
and the rest of the bits are off my std.hardrock disc 04
id show you the pictures if they wernt so crap.
Wow, decent bike there JOe.
I need to get those pics developed.... hang tight. Unfortunately, I took them before I put the new cranks and seat on it. It looks SWEET all clean and everything. So awesome.
cheers its taken me a wile to get it together but i love it. and id also like to take this oppertunity to say that its not an xc bike!!!

i just got a new lid, its not quite a bike but after seeing VTEC_GUY crash badly i had to getter a full face not a open one.
also check out my other pics at pinkbike
btw the pics of the banshee are not too good
Giant AC with a few mods. It's under 40 pounds so i can go uphill and tuff-enuff for the big hits.
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?
Awesome bike I6-4-eva
@ VIPFREAK : Intresting question.
I have a feeling it's discrimination against lefthanders.
nice AC, but can the air shock take a battering??
y'all got nothin on this beast! It's a stock pic of my Haro F3, being 14, i prefer to use the trails for something different than the rest of you guys. Like i said, it's a stock photo, mine is chrome.
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!
Mine has all Rock Shox SID air... I love it. then again I'm still at the "I'm too stupid to know the difference, just give me a bike and ride" stage.
maybe you weren't impressed with my other bike, here is an even less impressive one..My 03 xr100r, modifications-Scratches on bars from beating them back into shape., Bent shifter, once bent clutch(channel locked them), dented brake pedal, nascar and Danscomp stickers...99cc's of fury!
I just realized somthin', my bike cost 2100$, some of your guys' MTB's are more than that
All I can say is that you asked for this, don't laugh. (OK laugh at will )
It was bought by my great-grandpa, then used by my grandpa, then by my mom and now it's mine. A real historic!
ive just got me self a manitoui sherman wots u guys oppinionon them?
I need to take a proper pic really.
This is one i found on google somewhere - all of mine are really dark.
What is that I can't make out the name.
