    I'll get a pic tomorrow when it's light out... I don't remember what kind I have, it's just a cheapo 3 speed I got at Recycled Cycles as a starter... It's light green and rust /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    This spring, after I'm done with my Explorer project (May), I'm going to get a new one from Target or something and see if I can sell the one I bought last year and another one I have in the shed that needs a tube... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Not high tech, but 21 speeds, great cantilever brakes, rapid fire shifters (the kind that are spring loaded and shift NOW when you want them to), use it mainly for hunting. Have a bow holder setup on the handlebars. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    I bought my brothers old bike when he upgraded to his new rac bike. It's a gary fisher. He took it to 1st in state last year in Idaho (raced in Idaho, Neveda, Oregon...)

    It's a very nice bike.

    I have a proflex/K2 (the transition year when Proflex was bought out by k2). It still has the carbon fiber rear arms, coil over springs, and a multi link noleen shock setup. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Its a nice bike, too bad I dont ride as often as I used to. I should get off my fat ass and do some riding!

    Yes, that's a trailer for a bike that it's on. Built that to go shopping when I was in college. Carries 3 brown grocery bags and the lock is part of the pivot system while also locking the trailer to my townie. Friend gave the car top rack as a joke and I made it clip on with some tiny De-Sta-Co's. Oh yea, and the MotoMag now spins on sealed cartridge bearings.

    I'm runnin a 2002 K2 Bumpy monkey, good bike but getting ready to step up to something with more travel and hydraulic brakes, maybe a Kona stinky /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif. I'll try and find some pictures though.
