    Since you asked:
    RFX




    By far, my most favorite bike cause I built the frame myself at UBI




    On One 1x9. I've been digging this bike because it was cheap. $200 for the frame and left over parts from the bin. Plus, it's steel and built like a tank (weighs like a tank too).

    Good but heavy. The weight is the penalty you pay for being able to drop the seat post any time you need to in a hurry. I've only had it for a few months so I haven't run into any issues as of yet.

    Dude,
    Yes, when I'm in SoCal, I ride with Xandei and Jr (United Adobo and Team Karma). I might be doing a Bootleg, SoCal/NorCal road trip the week of the 21st. If so, let's ride!

    @Flipnidaho - Xandei just got back from a recent trip in Bootleg last year... He said the trails were nice! Nice time I'll make sure to come and ride when you visit Socal again.

    I only use the brake, so I can accelerate all over again...

    Hey Wayne. Local ka pala. Let me know if you want to join XC type rides on weekday nights (mostly Lake Chabot) or more DH-All mountain type rides on the weekend (Demo, Skeggs).

    BTW, I think we could have ridden once before. A night ride with the Tropas... right? We caught you on your loop and you joined us for another one. That was you, right?

    'Twas a Yo Eddy, and I still have it. It doesn't get much love nowadays because it creaks too much and ...it's a 26er. It hangs in the basement reminding me of the good ol' days



    This will be the 10th year that I've been riding rigid singlespeed almost exclusively.
