    She's ready to rock and roll

    so i had a dilema what kind of bike to get, so i bought a fork (pike) and rode my craftworks, while i was doing all this i ordered a steelhead. The day after i ordered the steelhead i saw an amazing deal on a 4x bike, so i bought it. I was asked what i was going to be riding and i had no clue (tony) well i have it all figured out now and here it goes, The Craftworks is for sale $150 with the headset, horizontal drop outs and a der hanger.

    so now that is done im selling the steelhead for $180 with headset and seat post thingy a ma jig.

    And finally the new ride, she will be my all around bike, xc, park yada yada yada. All tho i loved the feeling of the single speed i need the money for the 7point


    If anyone is interested in either one of my hardtails let me know. Also i have a small ironhorse hollowpoint for 400 if anyones interested. tomorrow morning there will be a new classified with all kinds o stuff

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    That's a sweet ride - no more excuses bout taking the xc bike off 3' drops.
    Is the full face to protect ya from the extra steerer tube?
    PS - What's the rr travel?

    bike hore
    obviously you watched that guy on the fxr tearing it up at expn and figured rr suspension would be an advantage over the hardtail.

    That ride looks hot. I can't wait to check it out in person. Looks to be a small frame. What size is it? I too am ready for a new bike. New cranks should be here tomorrow for the heckler. Can't wait.

    beleive it or not its a medium... but it is no where close to a regular medium. the seat tube is 15inches long if you extend up the seatpost you can have an xc bike. it has a 21.75 tt so thats pretty much in line with a 17 bike. So far i love it but then again it has only been given the parking lot test. Will def play on it tonite and see how it goes.

    good luck on the new cranks, it threw the lx's on there and they feel great.

    Im stoked for wed, the only reason im going tonite is bc i didnt go boardi ngtoday

    What Ironhorse frame is that and where did you find it? It looks pretty sweet. I got the Holzfeller cranks. Can't wait to see them in person. I'm really hoping to make it on Wed. We'll see.

    Its the ironhorse mountain cross frame, it was a special limited run last year. Im not sure how many were made but they retailed for 1399 and you could only get them from ih directly. A dood on the IH forum posted it up there to see if anyone was interested so i jumped on it. It was actually a pros bike Matthew Laurin (canuck nat'l if i remember correct). Its a super sick ride cant wait to play on it tonite.

    Dont worry youll be good to ride wed no worries

    Holzfeller are good cranks had them for a while, much much better then husselfelts

    felt pretty darn good, put alot of air in the shock to make it stiff. need to turn it into a single speed tho. regular chains and deraiulers are horrible.

    It's a med frame, its still available. The dimensions can be found at www.craftworkscycles.com. The seat tube is 16 inches long approx.

    I wonder if that's the same bike I was looking at the other night on an issue of Decline - I think that Matthew Laurin is on the cover - and I know that whoever is on the cover is riding an IH Hollowpoint that looks just like yours. I'll have to look tonight

    I'm gonna be happy to get my stable back to 3 bikes. Oh wait, including the roadbike, I'll be at 4. Yeah, I wouldn't want to have any less than four. Your stable SUCKS!!
    But seriously, you could buy a camper for how much your 3 bikes are worth. Hmm, maybe I'm on to something. Have you compared the price of your planned house with modular living? That would free up some more bike $$...

    Better yet - I could build you a pimp-@ss roll in / roll out treehouse. I can see it now, sitting on the back deck, 15 feet off of the ground, drinking beers and grilling - after finishing our burgers and beers, we could grab our bikes (which would be leaning against the rail of the 1000 sf deck) hop on them and drop one by one off of the open end of the deck and onto a tranny that would give us just enough speed to clear the alligator pit before riding onto the skinny section.....

    And you'd have a flat enough roof that you could set up the BBQ and lounge chairs up there, as well as link some of the ladders up to it. That would be cool.
