Just a couple pics of my '96 Hoo Koo e Koo. all stock except for the fork and wheels. There's almost a 10 mile long paved trail that i take my kids riding on now that my youngest knows how to ride. The wheels are great for coasting, they really keep your speed. Paid $700 new back then. What kind of VRCs do you guys own, and that you bought new?

I'm the 2nd owner of my Phoenix, but the first to build it up. Originally bought for the 1st owner's EX girlfriend, it sat unbuilt in a closet until I picked it up. Ain't love grand?
I have a similar situation with my Xizang, I'm the third owner, second to build it into a bike and first to actually ride it more than once.

Man, you're killin' me with those tires, on that Fat! I mean, I understand wanting something 'smoother' to ride in the city, but this sh!tassed tires? gawd! At last grab some semi slicks, or some nice bigger touring style tires with puncture protection. Ohhh, it hurts!

That fork looks great on there! Very sleek looking.-ebay is the only place I know where you might find one.

Who ever fit you for that bike when you bought it wasn't doing their job.
+1 - If that is anywhere close to your normal seat height then that bike is way too big for you.

I still have my 1996 Gary Fisher Paragon (my first good bike) all original parts back on except the Sugino cranks which snapped along the way (replaced with first generation race face turnbine lp's), and the rear rim. Even found some old Tioga Psycho's a few years back to finish the restoration. I will have to dig up some photo's.

I also have my first real mtn bike, an LL Bean Approach (1992 or 3 I think). Not sure who made the frame for them, but it is a nicely welded 4130 tubeset with respectable geometry. It has a mint condition (actually, nevery ridden since a factory rebuild in 1997) Mag 21 R on it. Thinking about taking the fork off and selling it. Hard to find a freshly rebuilt and mint condition Mag 21 these days.

Bought my 1995 Ritchey P21 and 1998 Ritchey Plexus new. My Plexus is near mint because I reach for the P21 everytime.

Hello,
Just joined here, long time lover of all two-wheeled machines, full time motorcycle mechanic living in So Cal since the mid sixties and married to a sweetheart.

1983 Tom Ritchey Team Comp 20", purchased new in March 84 and still use her as a commuter.

1997 Ritchey P21, purchased new in 2000 but have not used her much on the dirt ( I'm too heavy :mad: )
