My new ride

Added some new wheels to my collection







Its a Gary Fisher Piranha. Its what I ride in my off time. Although im not use to the front suspension, so I was doing a pretty fast stopie today and I went up and when I shifted my weight forward the front uncompressed and tossed me. my left elbow is F'ed!!!! but its a sweet ride.

Nice bike
For the money you cannot beat www.fezzari.com/mountain.htm
I own Alta Peak XR and Abajo peak pro. These bikes offer quality parts at cheap prices

Well he was askin 600 but I talked him down to 550. And he gave me 50 bucks for an old sharty bike I had. So I walked out the door for 500, and its an '07 model. The '08 has a few better options like hydraulic dics brakes, but it was 800 bucks.

Cabled disc brakes suck. Upgrade to something like a magura louise fr in the front. Rear isnt as important.

IDK seem to be great for now. It seemed to lauch me right over the handle bars quite easy! Once my elbow is feeling ok ill get some wheelie and stoppie pics up here for ya. But I cant apply any weight on my left arm. So its useless (AHH my clutch hand!!!)

Those 100 dollar "full suspension" bikes are pieces of chit for actual mountain biking. Chitty components, chitty ride, heavy, etc etc etc. Just to ride around the street, fine.
