    Very cool. I have a good friend that apprenticed under Dave Moulton and he told me once that there were very few Fuso labeled mountain bikes built.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Very cool. I had no idea that Dave Moulton made mountain bikes. How's it ride?

    That's an interesting brake bridge.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    There was a NOS one hanging in the rafters of a local shop for a while. Shop has since gone out of business, not sure what became of the frame.
    When I asked about it, their reply was such that they pretty much wanted an unrealistic number for it.

    A different bike...but should be about what Mr. Banks has goin' on. Rad bikes. (this one obviously needs saving)

    Fuso

    There was a guy riding a Fuso at the iron horse this year in the road ride. I used to have #37 back in high school. Only bike I have ever regretted selling.

    No ****. My work has been keeping me super busy these last 6 months and most of my riding has been with my 10 year old. I found that 15 mile rides at 10 miles an hour (although great for a ten year old) didn't quite get me up and running the the road ride. I added almost a solid 2 (yeah two) hours to my 2:48 from the previous jaunt up to silverton. Let's just say my ego was busted and I was pretty damn tired the next day. Plus I wasn't able to get the slingshot up and running due to work/no time. I did see a couple of nice hms there and some crappy old Raleigh 😱

    We'll work on your excuses, AKamp. That was weak!

    Anyway. If you were spectating and also didn't take pictures, in the words of Hollister, you are dead to me.

    I'll have to get banned again girlonbike. I want to apologize to you for that stupid post on how to get wives to want to ride, it was a little tasteless.

    you had that sling on top of your car downtown right? I saw one.

    Good call on bailing. Getting beat by Rumpfy would be terrible. Its never happened to me.... but man, I can't imagine.

    No I didn't even get it built up. I was riding around on a non-vintage Potts though. But to be slightly vintage it does have 900 cranks and a 25 year old dura-ace derailleur acting as a tensioner

    Fuso

    Just got off the plane in Durango 5 minutes ago. The smell of fresh rain and trees is so nice.
