    Does he have the Vicious built up yet?

    I built up a Vicious Motivator (29er) just about a year ago. It's a great riding bike! It was supposed to be temporary frame (I picked it up for relatively cheap), to help me decided what I wanted in a 29er frame, but after a year of riding I don't have any plans on gettting rid of it. It looks like it's here to stay. If I were to go custom there are a few changes that I'd ask for, but otherwise, I'm happy as a clam.

    I suppose other classic HT's would be Specialized Stumpy, of course, Yeti ARC, Ells Sub 22.

    I vote for the YoEddy!!!!!

    1. Ahead of its time relative to handling the gnar of the time
    2. Coolest micro gussets...double chin, on the fork blades and the lil strut between the top of the sstays
    3. A true Mountain bike for mountain trails...I spent a fair amount of time demo-ing bikes at Cambria in 89 or 90(whenever it first came out) and it shined galaxies beyond the rest when it came to simple Mountain Bike handling.

    i'm from South Carolina. went to USC (univ. of South Carolina). Our mascot is the Gamecock. a rooster. in cockfighting (mind you illegal in SC; a spur is attached to the cock's legs). our team colors are garnet and black. hence the name GarnetSpur.

    and yes PETA is after us. but, moreso, the mascot is named after a revolutionary war figure from SC. Thomas Sumter. his nickname was the Gamecock.

    go cocks. go eggroll.

    coolio! what did you study there? I been to N. Carolina (drove from Norfolk, VA to Charlotte). Didn't have a bike but trail ran that trail across the street from the motorcycle hero's house, and also trail ran York River St. Park. Really like how green it is and the tight, twisty trails! (my sister has since moved back and lives near Camp Pendleton)
