    Milkmoney sweetness!

    Here is my Milkmoney v2.0. I swapped out a Reba Team for a Fox TALAS. Not that the reba was bad in any way, I just wanted the ability to lower the front end during long technical climbs. You will hear this over and over but this bike is just FUN

    Pedaling is efficient even with the RP23 open (no propedal) with my 32x20 setup. I really only use propedal for long forrest/fire road climbs. The rear end is stiff as hell (coming from a version 1 RIP 9). The headtube angle is slack enough to attach steep techy descents but not so slack that its lumbering and slow.

    As shown my MM weighs around 25-26lbs. You could certainly lighten it up further by swapping out the brooks saddle, etc but I am perfectly happy with it as is. Super fun bike and I highly recommend it!!!!

    Here's mine. Has become pretty much my go to bike for most days. Pretty standard build - no idea what it weighs in at, but smiles per mile meter is always pegged.

    D3DO,

    You took the drop bars off. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart - that was the morally correct thing to do.

    Probably the funnest most versatile bike I have ever owned. Comfortable in all sorts of terrain, and a hoot to ride.














    Not recommended riding style for this frame...

    It's just a big suitcase. Size Large Frame. Wheels had to go in a separate box. It might fit in an S&S case, but they are expensive.

    Threefer, but the requested green one isn't mine, it's Mikesee's, I just happened to have a pic on my computer since I was geeking for mine before it shipped

    Snow Camo's a customers ride.....

    Get one, as stated ad nauseum, by far the biggest fun factor bike I own, bar none.

    '3 O'Clock High?' Pimpride definitely gets the award for most obscure 80s movie reference in mtbr history!

    Hey, the Green One is mine! I bought it from MikeSee this spring. I'm assuming it is the same one. I LOVE it and is my favorite bike to ride. I haven't changed anything but the grips, seatpost and saddle. Ignore the ugly guy in the picture.

    Any creaking

    I have been more or less obsessed over this bike, but wondering, anyone got bunches of miles and any creaking out there? A certian hi-mileage person I know says it is hard to keep the BB pivot from making noise. Any info would be great!!! Jefe
