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.http://www.head-fi.org/forums/showth...light=Brooklyn
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.
