I was in the junk shop today and some nice full curve bar ends were mounted on an old Cascadia by Royce Union. After checking the bike over and discovering that it's...
Motobecane has a semi-fat tire (3") with a solid frame, hydraulic disk brakes and click shifters that work smooth even under pressure. My old boss weighed over 400# and after he test...

I miss my old 26" Huffy. That thing could thrash trails all day.

replied to What was your first mountain bike?
My first was a Raleigh that I found abandoned in a ditch alongside the road. I tweaked on that thing all the time before I eventually gave it away. Easy come easy...

replied to Searching the forums?
Thanks for the replies. Yes, Triton, that's what I've been doing. I was just hoping there was a simpler (more direct route) to get there.

Is that the fat tire you were inquiring about the other day?
Man, if the shoe fits...   Love the slogan.
