    Just keeping the forum fresh so you don’t go through 6 pages to see the latest bike. Here’s my bike, took my life savings to get it…

    I’ve added fenders for riding around the neighborhood in rain (I’m 15 and this is my primary/only transport!) and much mud, scratches, duck tape, and new tires and grips there’s my bike.

    Not a bad start, bro. 😎
    It’s awesome you spent your savings on that Fuel instead of wasting it on a car.
    I wish I had stuck with bikes when I turned 16 instead of blowing my cash on a car that just ended up making me more broke…. It helped with the ladies, but I rapidly found out that girls who will only date a guy because he’s got a car ain’t worth spit. And I never lived far enough away from my jobs that I [u:okd65j30]needed[/u:okd65j30] a car.
    Now all you need to do is find a girl that loves to ride, and everything will be right with the world. 😼
    My wife and I use those same fenders, they’ll keep your frame nice & pretty too. I dig that color blue that Trek & Fisher uses.[/u]

    Here is my ALL in one bike it’s my main transport bike to go to work everyday and with a tire change it’s a XC machine… It’s mostly stock… My next upgrade will be a pair of avid SD7 to replace my generic Vbrakes

    Why not get BB7s? Those hubs look like they can mount rotors.

    #70441

    they do but a set of sd7 with Ti levelers is 80$ shipped + low maintenance + i do XC and road so no need for $$$ disc brakes here if i would do a lot of XC with DH then maybe… Anyways the SD7 are as good as a mechanical disc brake…

    Here is my noble steed. Her name is Carla. I’ve always loved bikes and whatnot, but this was my first real big investment into it (comparing with Wal-Mart bikes, etc.) The only things I don’t like is the crank and the rims. The crank wobbles after a few hard rides and the rims are no-name and they have bent easily on me. 😢

    Look for a set of Alex rims. They’re lightweight, but have stood up to a lot of abuse when I had them. Find out what your bottom bracket shell size is, and get a new BB w/ crankset. Bottom brackets are cheap, and a set of Truvativ FireX cranks are a good start.
    Also, you might want to go with a 100mm stem w/ no rise, that stem you’ve got is a cheapo touring setup, and a different stem will turn your bike into a totally different experience. Switch to some clip-in pedals, and you’ll be set! 😃

    Handlebars and a stem are next on my list. I might be paranoid but I’m wondering if my bars are slightly bent now. I took a nasty fall a few weeks back. What would you recommend other than just 100 mm? What sort of brand, etc?

    I am still a Clydesdale I was 238 at the docs but I had big lunch before that.

    the reason I was at the docs is because there is something up with me. I can’t lose weight, unless I get food poisoning 😮. But at least I am not gaining any tho. But thats thanks to 100 to 250 miles a week of riding on none race weeks. 😛 I can’t cut anymore calories or I would not be able to function.

    I got a race tomorrow, my class has to do three laps for a grand total of 30 miles, and it is going to hot out.And the trail is pretty muddy. I think I got a chance of winning it. You may be talking to the future USAC Michigan State Champ Clydesdale.
