I'll play since it's doing a lot worse than raining here:

On the wall is my wife's endorphin, my v-tach and endorphin and our cheap road bikes used for training purposes. My chromag samurai is just cut off on teh edge of the shot (love that bike...road it a lot late fall/early winter in the cold crappy condition that make suspension feel like poo).

My wife's delirium is in the stand getting a makeover with some shiny new bits to replace old worn stuff plus I'm lacing some new 721's to her hadley hubs for a little beefier wheelset. She pretty much destroyed the 5.1's over the last season riding way harder on the DT.

Some close-ups of the upgrades recently done to the v-tach:
Boxxer WC with chromag DM stem
Straightline pedals
New chrome chromag bar since I bent my old ones in a nicer digger late in the season
Nice Diverse ti spring on the pushed vivid - saved 0.45lbs over the stock steel spring.

I've spent the last little while overhauling the whole fleet and preparing the big bikes to go to Costa Rica with big mountain at the end of Feb...can't wait for that.


And here's what takes up the rest of my garage (and time). My '69 pro-touring chevelle I built over the last 3 years. 750HP 540ci big block with 5-speed manual, all new road race suspension, corvette z06 brakes etc, etc. The beast is a lot of fun but you have to respect it. Even 315/30/18 r-compound tires just can't handle 700 ft-lbs of torque unless you have perfect hot sticky asphalt. Currently in the middle of a winter overhaul to fix some bugs I found last summer and switch over to multiport fuel injection and direct ignition.

Not sure since I just got it and we have a lot of snow. From pedaling around and playing on the street I can tell it definitely matches the pushed vivid way better than the '09 888RC3 I had on there before...plus it doesn't have the aggravating clunking the 888 had. It was also 2.5lbs lighter which is very noticeable even when picking the bike up. Seams very smooth for an air fork as well.

My restoration project. It was my grandfather's.


My single/fixie. Fixie is a way for natural selection to weed out less fit people.


My Africabike. I saved babies in Africa today. What did you do?


My road bike with trainer tyres.


The bike my wife has plans to commute on. For now it looks good in the dining room.


La piece de resistance, fresh from a fork overhaul.

I love the look of those orange EG's. Never ridden one but I like the color and swoopy tubes...they pull it off better than most bikes do.

true...the el g gots the best swoop. the problem is, all that swoop doesn't get you nearly the standover help that a lot of other brands were after. i've always felt titus bikes run a little large compared to other brands...

Nice Quiver!

I'm curious. If you have internal gearing and a HS, why would you need a derailleur type aparatus in the rear? I mean it seems like you could run a SS like setup and have the benefit of no chain slap at all. Is suspension the reason you need it? Either way, stout looking steed. :thumbsup:

Yep, you need a tensioner as the axle path is not a perfect arch around the BB by design. There are a few bikes on the market that design this into their suspension, but it is not ideal.

Here is....

my current stable...all mountain/freeride, trailbike, dirt jumper, and commuter/cyclocross bike. The DT rides so well:D, I will get rid of the trailbike in the near future. FYI- I use the cranks/singlering off the Ibis for the dirtjumper.
