I know this isnt a Mountain bike but its sweet. I ordered mine Tuesday and it got here today and of course I had to build it up. I'll post pictures up tomorrow. I got the raw color...its tight. At the same time I got this sweet Go Lefty shirt. Anyone else seen it?

Here are the pictures of the bike. The pedals on there now won't be there for long. I plan on getting road pedals or maybe just using my SPD's. The bike comes with a freewheel but I put on the fixed right away, and just put the freewheel on the other side.I am probably going to bull horn the bars too. Also I added in an artsy picture that I thought was cool. Enjoy.

I own a Prophet too hence the name. I currently own 4 bikes. I know its a lot. Funny thing is this is my first road bike.

And about those quick miles...I cant even ride it probably until mid-week. I took a little fall on my Prophet which resulted in me hitting my knee on a rock and split it open. Requiring ten stitches of course. Right where the knee bends too so I have to walk with a stiff leg for a week and a half. Now I dont have a picture of the knee when it was open, but of course I have one with the stitches. Check it out.

Haha. They stuck with that little needle sooo many times it wasnt even funny. I didnt feel a thing... I was actually laughing most of the time. It was weird though. And yes, seeing your own fat is very weird. When I first looked down it was all white, and then it started bleeding. I had to ride about 3 miles one footed. Haha.

Prophet I think you have the first post of a new thread "Trail Scars and Stories". Nice.

My 12 year old nephew got 5 stitches from a fall off his bike and the nurse asked to rate the pain 1 - 10, 10 being the worse he just smiled and said zero.

Haha, I said three. My leg never really hurt at all. It just stung when they injected me for numming. Other then that, it was a walk in the park.

Niceee. Glad to see others picking them up. Take off that rear brake and put a track cog on there, then you got yourself a bike. Haha. Nice Prophet in the background...you are very similar to me.

oh yeah, the track cog was put on before it left the door. the brakes have to stay on while i'm in training. if you could see the hills in my hood you'd understand. soooo steep.

True. Yea, the track cog was put on before it even left my shop too. What gearing are you running?
