    This has been a one year project, just finished today, can't wait to test and see if is going to be "trail worthy" :eek:

    Its defiantly more trail worthy than anything sold in Walmart.
    If that means anything.;)

    Trail worthy in deed

    It's been almost a year since I built this bike and it has become one of my favorite mountain bikes.
    As a bonus, it has made me a stronger rider as well.


    The bike in action....

    Nope

    Nope, the bike is predictable and strong, a pleasure to ride really.

    Right on man, I levitate towards my klunker over all my other super expensive, latest technology mountain bikes. If you got the lungs and the leg muscles, these klunkers will get you deep into the forest & back...:cool:

    I'm with ya bro I have a coworker who wanted to get into the MTB scene and be one of the guys, he threw down a big wad of cash and got dual suspension carbon this titanium that then had to go tubeless and never rode the thing? It's up on FB classified for way less than he has in it and way more than anyone will pay, sad!

    Looks like the country agrees! We got a SoCal rider, NYC rider all brought together by a G.O.B. (Good ole Boy) living at the tail of the Ozarks! Fat Tire Festival is coming up in Eureka Springs AR in July hope I can make it there!
