    Hey Oggie,

    Can't you find a bike that works for you? What is this, your third or fourth mtb you own. Actually, I am just jealous that I can't have a couple more in my garage. Although I picked up one of these that one of the guys had out last week and it was a pound or two heavier than my FS carbon fibre Giant. I hope you get the right components on it for that kind of cake...

    Oh dang! Looks very purdy. My favourite colours too. Yes a carbon hardtail would be perfect for the shorter weekly races. I hope you enjoy that while i continue to ride my 31lb beast. Surly you have enough bikes now...

    geez, i only have 3 mountain bikes... absolute necessity:
    FS all mountain 5+ inches of travel
    FS endurance racing 4 inches of travel
    HT racing beast 80mm fork...

    oh wait, 2 more road bikes, one "fast" racing bike and one titanium cyclocross and winter bike...

    yes, that is it... only 5 bikes.. how can you go less than that???

    now my GF bikes:

    just kidding... she has 1 MTB that she uses for everything...

    what goes on this frame? sram XO, RF Deus X-type, Magura Marta SL, Mavic Crossmax SL, Fizik, Fox F80X, RF Next SL flat bar, RF Deus stem... guess that should be it...

    i just didnt want to go aluminum or scandium - wanted something that will be a bit more comfortable - carbon... size is XL... i think medium frame is around 2.3 pounds or something like that...

    paid less than $1000 with seatpost, front derailleur and headset - shipped...

    it retails for well over $2300 before taxes - bare bone frame....

    tis purty, consider it an investment too. with the cost of carbon set to top platinum (thanks to those stupid plane builder types) it will be worth more by Nov/Dec of this year when the lowly cycling industry looks in the closet...hmmm empty.

    catching me on tuesdays? 'eh, maybe you and supadupa could team up, er nope, that would mean one of you would HAVE TO SHOW UP! and not break a frame, crash, get a flat...

    when will you people learn....when!?

    how was the race yesterday - i had to work at U of T - semifinals of their summer league... one of the high profile assignments that one doesnt want to turn back...

    my mind was at Albion Hills though... it was purrrfect weather for racing... wasn't it...

    all you need to know is i kicked your arse. DNFL beats DNF beats DNS...

    it was pretty much stock 'black' single track, with all 3-4 of the short steeps (normally avoided) from the chalet side...4.9k...cornholio roast...getting dark early...

    24hr preview next week, full 17k...i am thinking we line up and race for pinks next week...

    i was intending to exploit that but this bloody proper upbringing of mine is making me feel guilty.

    START: 2 racers, 2 bikes
    FINISH: 1 winner with 2 bikes - 1 loser with an empty roof rack...

    superlight was right about you. he told me never to turn my back to you. never...

    on another hand, it'd be easier if you just threw your bike into lake Ontario. You'd lose it anyway... My squishy will keep hanging off the ceiling in my living room... i'd have no room for your misfitcycle at my home...

    supa was right...but he brought that on with his wicked evil laughter...and nananah at the expense of poor trail victims.

    dont worry about not having room, i see an empty hook in your future...hhummmmmmmm...

    I think you guys should race for your wives.. winner takes the others wife.. kinda old skool. But I think Nosheer would throw the race and loose purposely.
