    Ahhh

    If Ansel Adams were cool enough to have ridden a tricked out blinglespeed mountain bike, he'd have taken a much better photo than I, no doubt. But he wasn't.

    Last evening, I broke out my SS for the first time since last Aug and had a go at the N. Footie Trails. Purrrfect.

    Doubt it, cuz it's a timeless Titus hardtail from the Chris C. era.

    Not one of their full squish's with a suspension technology from yesteryear.

    singlespeed... rigid... meh.

    Real cyclists ride 35 lb 6" geared drop seat bikes down big rocks and wear armor and are "brave". (;

    Oh... and take movies in color.

    Great image, btw.

    Hmm, I like titanium's properties as bike tubing material but to cut it up then insert carbon fiber seems a bit stupid. I mean Ti will outlast those cookie color inserts to turn it into a nice dust collector on your garage wall in a few more years.

    Monster Paws is a project. all the members are in other bands.
    Launchpad or Atomic will be your best bet to catch them. I saw them only once at the CD release.
