All awesome bikes, nobody mentioned mine, though
Very nice...I wish that Santa Cruz had made SS dropout provisions for the Highball Carbon the way they did for the alloy version, be it would be a great competitor to Niner's carbon HT SS's

though the dirty little secret is that it has been build up 1x10 for the last little while,
Not claiming to be the baddest one out there, but it has been built very strong and comfortable at a scant 19lb.

love that pic ernesto! wishi had views like this where i ride!
Baddest or Baddass that is the question.
Think my Surly Karate Monkey has a say in this.
So bad the concept of doing "a bit of xc" naaa no chance, only if drunk, then maybe.
So bad we took on a mountain full of superenduro and downhill race bikes.
Then after bursting the headset and the cold affecting the freewheel grease to render it useless (no drive at all, pawls stuck down in cold grease) after mauling our way down a seeding run.......
We where so bad, we drove up the road, bought the wrong freewheel (1/8 not 8/9speed, only had 8/9speed chains) then beat the stuck freewheel back to life in the Forts carpark(only lost a few ball bearings) and went for a jolly on that Fort William World cup downhill track to check things worked.
Badass was the seized headset the following morning, made some funny noises when i cracked the bars round first thing in the morning.
Really Bad was starting in seeding group A, but with no drive i ended up in group C, strangely my final race time was good enough "not to be last" in the B final race run.
Surly's are a pretty baddestbadass place to look, oh and running V-brakes is damn bad too (in many senses)
Too many pretty static shots (nice they are, but not bad) have shots of my Karate Monkey and Me mixing it up with downhillers.......and i didn't come last.
