Here's my Rocket

Just a bunch of clutter in my garage and my bike. The bike's a bit dusty but I guess that's how it always is. Just updated the rear shock with an Xfusion O2 air (under the Lizard skin) - a fox rip off. So far, a good shock!

Here is mine: stock setup ecept for the SR Suntour fork, Mavic 138 Rims laced to Shimano hubs, Aheadset SR headset, stem and saddle. Getting a new Zokes Nitro fork (100mm travel) and sometime down the line next year some deore disc brakes with deore disc rims laced to sun rhyno lite rims. Might even get some Panaracer Fire XC Pro tires with yellow sidewall to brighten the ride up. This is not my main ride. Actually I ride a Kona most of the time. But this is my first "True" full suspension bike - Every other one I have owned was a department store bike. :p

My Schwinn 4 Banger

Here is my 2002 Schwinn 4 Banger. A very sweet ride indeed. It has recently had a couple of cracks in the frame repaired and a fresh coat of paint. Which explains why there are no decals.
I would never part with it. :D

Now that you repaired the cracks on your frame. How does it ride?

Great!!! A very comfortable ride. It has very active rear suspension and does suffer from some pedal bobbing on climbs. But it certainly makes up for it when the trail turns downward
:p .
I may in the future try a SPV rear shock and see how that goes. For now I'm just enjoying the ride.

Straight 6

My LBS has a bunch of these frames NOS so I couldn't resist. This was a Hasa Comp 3.0D a few days ago which is why the odd parts. I will upgrade as $$ allow. The red seat post goes south when my new Truvativ arrives next week.

Here are my two Schwinns...

I put my white brothers fork back on my Rocket 88. Got rid of the MX Comp fork. Otherwise no real updates for my main ride. Pacific Bikes did send me a new rear derailler hanger for free and a new upper rocker arm (small fee). They're helping me keep my Schwinn and my Mongoose pro alive for a few more seasons. Not sure what I'll do when they eventually die. I've got 2 spare ICBM headsets (thanks Cane Creek) on standby since they may be hard to find in a few more years.

My other Schwinn is a roadie Schwinn Fastback. Sadly stuck in my laundry/storage room on a trainer for now. Needs a new headset. Luckily, it's not an ICBM but a IS headset.

My other bikes are a 2003 Dakar XLT with a White Brothers VT1.3 20mm fork and a 2003 Giant AC 1 with a Z1 FR up front.

I'd really like to ad a straight six to my stable but few can be found in decent shape these days without spending an arm and a leg. I need those to keep riding.

Really wish I had a straight six.
