Anyone free ride here?
I used to own a CR8 with Kooka Spyder DH Cranks, Marzocchi Z1CR, Magura Louise FR, LX Shifters, Ultegra Rear Dee and Cassette.

Now I just ride XC
Progear Comp with XT Drivetrain and Duke SL.

Indeed it is! It looks as if there are racing tires on that thing though.

I haven't had a tire blow out on me in a few years, although I did bend my back wheel a couple weeks ago because I dropped off of a 3' table onto cement.

Rigid bikes for life. Front suspension is nice, but I even had a Fox and didn't like it too much. Rigid forks make you such a better rider.

I'm currently saving up for a FS bike though....and it will be the only and last FS bike I buy. I will be going all out with Fox DH40s, and probably Mavic Deemaxes or D321 (or whatever they are numbered now). but I'm gonna try and see if I can build the entire bike with nothing but USA made parts...i.e Profile and Chris King will probably be the only things I can do, but we'll see what happens. Gotta get the frame first...




Brooklyn Machine Works for life. I loved riding those bikes so much.....I named my kid Brooklyn....seriously.

Here are the other two Brooklyns I owned:

1st one in Grey






2nd one done up in pink.





Probably the widest known MTB in the world, lol. It was THE FIRST mtb with the 1st run of Pink King gruppo, as well as the 1st set of Deity parts. It had the 1st set of Atomlab DHRs, and TI everything else. On a Brooklyn, kinda hard to mistake.

Now there are a ton of them out there because the Street MTB thing became "the in thing". But eventually, I'll own one of every frame they have as I do like to commute, so thier track bike would be nice to have.

Here's what's in my garage currently.


Never get a chance to ride this sucker, now that I've rellocated to another state.


Older Super-V, now relegated to easier, commuter duties.


And my daily beater, DMR Switchback converted to SS without horizontal dps, but a whole lotta luck.

You shouldn't use to much isolation when you're biking on the road anyway, but here in the Netherlands, most roads have specific bike trails next to them. Cyclists aren't really a road hazard here no matter what they do, because everybody is so accustomed to them. I can imagine that you have to be more careful in Culver City though...

yea the main road i am on has a specific bike lane though it is constantly intersected by vehicles, my theory is if i'm going to get hit i'm going to get hit no matter what and i use the basic earbuds that come with my player so there isn't much isolation i dunno the music really motivates when it comes to going that extra couple miles, ah well been keeping one earbud off since then hopefully i don't get stopped for that too

I have a super V. Not like that though. That looks like a graphite rear end. Nice. Plus, I have the fatty front forks on mine.Still rides great.
