    I'm pumped!
    Awesome. Mine has about a 100 rides on it now. I completely beat the shit, and it just keeps trucking. Never done a drop of maintenance besides the routine new chain and rear derailer. Probably have taken hundreds of 5 foot drops to flat landings. Granted it rides likes sh*t by now, but the just that fact that is still rolling in amazing.

    That's quite an endorsement, thanks! I'm really enjoying it so far, I don't think it will ever get as far off the ground as yours has though...

    It's not really as glowing a review as you might think, considering Austin weighs all of 120 lbs or whatever the frick it is. He could probably take my road bike off a 5 ft drop to flat and not break it.

    Yeah, I took his weight into consideration. I'm sure he's still pretty hard on his bike though...

    New to Me

    My new to me Rockhopper. Tora Race, Avid BB7 Mechanicals, took off the pedals in favor of some platforms for now. Just the bike to get me back out on the trails. 2 rides so far and no complaints, other than being OUT OF SHAPE!
