    Huckster plus Avy!

    My new bombproof-do anything bike. Just put the Avy on last night so I haven't ridden it yet , but even with the Manitou 4 way that came with the frame this bike rocks!

    Can't wait to take her up to Oat Hill.....

    NOS = +50hp.

    Stickers = +232bhp.

    Nice bike man. That thing is a beast. Pedaling it must be impossible!

    Northstar and Whistler bike for you right there.
    Meh.

    Nooooooooo it pedals great! That's the beauty of it. I climb everything including Oat Hill with it. Just heavy, that's all.

    You'd be surprised what you can get used to. Besides, when folks outclimb me I got an excuse!

    Big pedalable bikes were made for Oathill. Just ask Derelict how easy it is to get a 40 pound Bullit with a Fox 40 up that hill. Coming down is true pay-off.

    Nice bike Tele!

    That's the remote reservoir for the shock. You have to ride one of these to appreciate how amazing they are.

    ****, that's bling...
    I don't wanna throw the cost thing around, but that's worth more than I paid for my entire SS. even with my Crossmax front and Reba.
    Nothing wrong with throwing money on things you love, you don't wanna know what kinda of cash i've been dropping on my '90 VW Doka... we've all got our weak spots.

    Well between that and the the 02 Monster T I never have to worry about suspension. They are the ultimate in near-maintenance free indestructability and superior ride characteristics. Cost effective in the long run. Plus I don't waste my money on silly things like single speeds.....

    (Just kidding!)

    Also I save money by only owning one bike!

    Only 40 lbs.? Shoot. Bet he's a whippersnapper too.

    My buddy rides a Huckster. The rear PCA Moto-link looks quite interesting. Two things I couldn't deal with on that frame - Large size weighed in over 12lb., the head angle with a RS Domain fork is 64.5*. He is going to try a Travis 180 DC to see if the steering improves.

    Ahh, yes, only owning one bike. That's lunacy as far as I'm concerned... I'm at 8.
    And yes, I ride them all, mostly, except my highschool race bike which I made into my x-wife's Ibis. That one is hanging, waiting for my future x-wife.

    I measured the HA with my 02 Monster at a bit over 66 degrees. I have a medium even though I'm 6' 2". I like small frames with a layback post (very nimble and easy to wheelie). I can climb steep switchbacks no problem. I'm guessing the bike, with heavy ass Arrow DH rims and 2.7 wire bead tires, the Avy, plus the fork, is 46-48 lbs.

    The linkage is great. My previous frame was a Horst link design and the feel is very similar, but the moto link provides a rising rate. The bike has a very stable pedaling platform but still feels plush. I run two chainrings and don't need a chainguide since the chain growth is so minimal. The rear end is super stiff.
