    I hope you can find a free or really dirt cheap frame but you can pick up an On One Inbred cheap these days. Here's one.... these even have bolt on V-brake mounts too.

    Inbred

    I recently built one of these these up with spare parts as a second bike to use for everything from pulling the kid trailer to race hardtail duties. I got the slot drop version. I'm pretty impressed and used it to race in a Xterra triathlon yesterday.

    It's a really nice frame, especially for the price. I actually scored mine brand new on ebay for a little less than the sale price. I'm riding both of them equally right now.

    I don't plan on riding the Inbred at Ft. Rock much - too bumpy and technical for me and my neck/back issues. The Rock is Turner territory for me. But it's been a blast at SHP (actually I like both bikes at SHP for different reasons) and super fun on the less technical places near work like Kingman, College Woods, Long Marsh, etc. Plus I have some road riding to get to these places from UNH and JEL. It's a little boring poking around these places on the Turner - too easy and not a whole lot of mileage. But stringing it together on a hardtail with the added road mileage is quite fun and good training.

    Now that my tri is over I will probably switch it over to SS.

    Yeah I saw the report Sat. a.m. as I was on the way to Hanover for the race. Glad you got it.

    sounds good man. we should pedal sometime. down on the cape right now tending to landlord duties. if only my tenants would be where they say they would be in timely fashion. surf looks good on the coast guard beach cam right now. still gotta install a new smoke detector in a unit before i can go catch a few.

    be well
