He might be better off on that. On his new bike he can only shift the front derailur giving him 3 speeds. It did however have an adjustable rear shock.

Hope johnnypoach didn't buy his bike from Toys-R-Us.



Click. :lol:

I love how the front fork is mounted backwards in that picture! :lol:

That should give you some indication of the build quality of their bikes... ;)

Greg, you do realize that he didn't 'buy' and 'new' bike, he obtained someone's old bike that he's rehabbing back to life...

Oh boy. Jeff - maybe you have a buyer for your Rock Hopper?

I guess I need to ride faster...

After that ride with Nate, I've been trying to push it faster and faster. I've been using the granny gear less too.

He seemed to be pretty hooked on the full suspension. I don't think he's going to be willing to 'downgrade' to a HT.... ;)

Understood. Please tell me the "new" bike is a bit less embarrassing that the TWAA....

Me too, I still chicken out on some of the downhill stuff though...

I think of it as the TWAA with devices resembling shocks on the front and rear. IIRC it's a rad chrome frame though...

When Steve and Johnny pulled in Steve goes "Get that disgrace off the back of my Jeep

Classic pow! :lol: I can totally picture him saying that. Steve always cracks me up. :)
