    Went for my first real ride on the "new" bike. Don't mind the gratuitous ass shot.

    cyclocross, which was new to me. Its where people race road bikes on different terrain types, and the winner most likely carried his bike through the fun stuff. silly, i coasted until I found the fun stuff!

    Terra Shark

    Here's mine - - it's an EPX Terra Shark (Out of Business), but got a great deal (I know a guy who used to be in the bike industry) on this full-suspension carbon-fiber bike when I bought it back in '03. . . So the components are all "dated", but still plenty of bike for my skills.

    Crazy bike for its day, does it climb as badly as it looks like it should? I think Id hang that up on my wall for people to gawk at.

    The Fox rear shock has a manual lock-out, but still plenty of pedal sapping movement. . .or maybe it's just the rider. . .

    Many, many people have suggested that same thing. . . No repair parts (rear hanger, etc.), so someday it'll get mounted, at least in the garage. . .

    here's another craigslist gem i found. got this kona muni-mula with deore components all around (cranks, shifters, deraileurs, hubs, mavic rims) from a guy for 85 bucks. just needed a new chain and tires and a tune up. i replaced the chain with a light weight sram, and put raptor tires on it too.

    I had to get rid of my Gary Fisher hybrid when I moved over here, but I got this hand-me-down Kona for free from my great boss.

    "Oops I did it again..."

    Full specs: 2012 Giant Reign 1

    It was a demo bike at Fullerton Bicycles that I got for an absolutely smokin' deal that I couldn't pass up. Buying it included a full tune up, new chain, lifetime warranty as if I bought a new bike from them and free tune ups for life!

    Got this gem for a smokin' deal from a dude at work. I'm going to use it as a commuter/jumper/easy trail bike.

    It's a 2008 Giant STP.

    Our office moved to Irvine. Red hill and Alton, so it's only 10 miles. It should take as long as driving to Corona. I'll probably only do it twice a week.
