Some would say this bike is too clean to have seen a trail.
The grime on ur esi grips shows its just well maintained.
nice ride.

Just posted 5 pics on "Where are the Black Cats". Can not believe how smooth and quick the bike is. Could not be happier. Bike weights 22.5 as shown.
2nd time seeing that bike and I still want to punch you in the mouth and steal it. She is beautiful. I'd do things to her that would get me arrested in 26 states.

The bike isn't rideable in that pic...stil was missing a couple of parts = clean. She isn't so spotless any more:sad:

Grips/bars from previous bike = dirty..

(click for big)
Geekhouse Wormtown 29er - paragon sliders and braze-ons
XX all around (except fork)
Velocity blunt pro build wheels
reba rlt fork

Not sure of the weight, as it just got built up last week. It's seen one ride, and was pretty fantastic. This is my first 29er, and after only a day my line choices had drastically changed. It's amazing what you can roll over with just a little bigger of a tire.
I was pleasantly surprised with how the bike handled switchbacks as well. So far, Im really pumped on it. Still need to find a bottle cage...

Suprisingly..the cheapest of the bunch (Origin 8) was the one that caught my eye! $179 frameset has me wondering if I could pull off another build :p

I built this Paragon in 2008 (most fun ever is building a bike so you can pick and choose everything--not 'what i'm going to part-out when buying a pre-built.) Then built it again in 2010 and really 'dialed' it in with new Reba (which increased offset), and going to a 2x10 with bash guard. I tried various stems, bars, wheels, brakes, tires and Finally got it how I wanted it. My next build will be an Aluminum Tallboy!--and I know exactly which components I will get!
