    Kish Ti Hardtail

    Here's some indoor pics of my bike I just built up today.
    it's a 17" and it weighs right at 23 pounds. I coulda made it lighter, but I am happy with the way things turned out. I only got a chance to ride it about 8 miles on the trails, then it started raining, so I cut my ride short to avoid eroding the local trails. I'll post more pictures in outdoor lighting when the sun comes back out. It rides nice

    I have had the bike about a month now, and all I can say is WOW,

    This thing is light and it rides sooo nice. The back end is nice and flexy, and it steers/corners like it's on rails, and goes exactly where I point it, built up with the parts that I do, it is amazing on the trails. The fork is nice on the climbs too, there's some new pics of my bike and a pic of when I put some blue Ritchey Mud Max Tires on it for a race, and some pics of the welds
