    What frame is that and where can I get one? I'm completely serious, it looks brilliant.

    It's a 2004 K2 zed 3.0. I found the bike in a dumpster and stripped it down and sanded it and then spray painted it with rustoleum! I wet sanded with 1500 grit then polished with a rubbing compound to get a good shine on it. Came out pretty nice I think...the pictures just don't do it justice. Here's some pics of it they day I brought it home and the paint process:

    Here's mine... It's heavy (although the frame is under 4 pounds) but that just makes my legs stronger.

    Saw this at a shop in downtown Stuttgart. At first glance I thought it was a fully but closer inspection revealed it was a hardtail. An interesting trellis frame design that looked heavy.


    It's a Pelagro PB1, more info here

    Weighs more than my road bike, less than my dirt bike. Still thinks it's a cool-looking bike.

    2003 Kona revived

    I bought a 2003 Kona Stuff for $80 shipped. Had a K2 with bad swing arm. Used the parts from the K2 to build my new Kona.
    I own a refinishing company and the pain job is called dark cherry pearl (my own paint mix)
    This isn't finished yet. I have a shock seat post coming, white cable housings, new grips, and rapid fire shifters are on the way.
    I had to have the "stuff" decals special made and didn't have installed yet when these pics were taken.
    When I have the bike 100% I'll update. This build cost me just about $250 total.
    before:

    after:


    Update: just waiting on cable housings and seat post w/clamp and trigger shifts

    It will take you a few rides in various terrain to get the ABS dialed in but once you do all will be good

    Here's mine:
    Trek 4300 Disc
    WTB Speed V Pro Gel Saddle
    Titec Knock Post
    Velociraptors F&R
    Stock drivetrain
    For the money, Ive been extremely happy with this bike. Been beating on it since early 2009. Eventually it will get upgrades in the drivetrain but everything still works well.


    I ride faster than I should...

    I just did an upgrade swapping my components from my old Titus Riddler to a used IF I scored on Ebay. At the same time, I went to new wider bars and decided to give a Manitou Marvel fork a try. So for loving it, but still dialing in the fork a bit.

    Yeah I ride at JD when it's not too dry! That sugar sands brutal! Lol. I work all over Martin and Palm Beach so I take my bike and ride the trail I'm closest to. I like West Deleay cause they have a decent little jump section but I ride most of the local trails. I haven't made it to Markham or Virginia Key yet but I probably will be shortly. I really wanna go hit Santos for the weekend!

    Sweet bike Krunk but a 36T on the front! You must have the legs of Thor. I'm running an XX1 setup with a 30T on the the front and have been contemplating dropping that down to a 28T to gain some extra climbing HP and I'm a closet Roadie

    I run 34t / 11-36t and it's perfect for all riding in my opinion

    It helps that I'm in Florida.

    It's not that bad though, it's a 1:1 climbing gear ratio since my cassette is a 11-36.

    I may try out a 34t, but I'm afraid I'll spin out at the top of the gear on flat areas
