Thanks for reposting those JNC, it looks like I was posting those as Cactus was making a new thread. Wheee.

Got one more for tonight, then I gotta turn in.

Even Odus was excited. Gotta love the old Turner shirt.</a>

happy trails...

long winded old man w/ long housing

just a thought. it occured to me that at one point someones gonna blast me for the extra long housing and hydro lines in back. its a intended move so i can go to 6" mode and back without redoin all the lines each time. like most things in life, its a compromise.

CC, how do you like the Mallets? Can you really ride unlocked during sketchy sections of trail? Thinking about getting a pair for occasional use instead of my eggbeaters.

duuude, no nickle bag, thats sooo uncool.

Thats a real MB there cactus, love the old school Hayes brakes and XTR crankset. I finished my first big bike project myself earlier this fall and I love the bike, it's not a Turner but it's pretty darn sweet and I'm running some circa 2000 Hayes brakes(work like a champ) and an XTR setup like yours. Love the color too! Enjoy
