This is the best place to post these I think. What else could explain it. I have been building these up for a few years, some change some remain the same.
Still working on the el cuervo.
If only there were more of me I could ride them all more.
First is the ellsworth specialist, posted here: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?p=1972978#poststop
2-el cuervo still in proccess of building it up. will post it when finished, hopefully in time to ride before the rain.
3-titus riddler race hard tail (if only I raced!) w/ race face next sl cranks, triple ti eggs, magura sl's, white industries hubs, fsa carbon xc riser bars, xo grip shift, extralight ul post, etc. One day I will weigh it.
4-el salty 5" w/maverick sc32 fork, king, hope mono m4's, fsa cranks, ti eggs, syncros ti post, xo thumb shifters, even has a king cassette lock ring!
5-old cannondale m700 (my first build, still cannot part with it) as single speed semi-commuter. I will post it in the single speed section when it is finished. All it need are old school cantilevers, I had a pair of xtr's but sold them before the idea struck to build it up.
6-azonic steel head shop bike.
7-bizango single speed convert with rigid vicious cycles fork, wtb ti bars, tnt cranks, phil bb, old school hugi hubs laced to ceramic 217's, paul brakes all around, etc.

My girlfriend is very tolerant. Much of the credit goes to slartibartfast as he is very willing to support my "hobbie".
Thanks.

Yes she does.

Although she does have in place of a medal; an s-works hardtail, a ventana single speed, and a maverick ml7.
I think this is sufficient reward.

I just got into this sport and have plenty to learn. I picked up a full suspension a month ago and am thinking of getting hardtail also. Told my brother and he told me I was nuts, since I barely know what to do with the one I have now. After seeing your stable, I feel so much better knowing that this collection exists! They all look great! Now I'm definitely going to get a hardtail, but I'll have to learn the sport more first.

Careful, it can be habit forming.

Thanks, I enjoy them all.
Some trails I ride the single speed, some the full suspension.
Also depends on who I am riding with.
Some guys are so much faster than I am I ride the hard tail, some times I ride the single speed with my girl so as to not drop her. And some days she drops me.
And after some friends took my on some steep fast downhill type trails I switch almost entirely to disc brakes and now I am building up a downhill bike, although I doubt I will ride it more than two or three times a year.
Welcome to a great sport.
Don't let your brother discourage you from having as many bikes as you can rationalize.
I would rather spend the money on bikes than beer, ballgames, sports cars, gambling... you get the idea.
Have fun.
And let us know how your hard tail comes out.:thumbsup:
