I mean "here" as in this forum, not "here" as in where I live. In my necks of the woods we ride big bike fully's. Hell even the XC guys ride like that, there's not much tame terrain here.

God it makes me so happy to see someone owning it on an $800 rigid bike. I'm sick of seeing pictures of 6"and 6" Hope/I9/GravityDropper/plat'num toof bikes in living rooms or rolling along hardpack under some dude with more armor than a riot squad cop.
Actually, I originally built this bike for under 300 bucks with spare parts. (got the frame online for 180 and either already had, or got the rest of the stuff for cheap/free). I recently busted the rear wheel one too many times and decided to get a beefier rear wheel. So I guess it has cost me about 350 at this point. The bike weights a little above 27lbs.

I really like seeing what is possible to ride on a such a stripped down bike. You can ride down almost any trail, unless it has huge manditory drops or gaps or something.

Have you ever thought about trying 5-10 shoes? Those things are soo awesome for flat pedals. As someone how also rides clipless (use clipless on my Enduro with Sidis), I didn't want my feet to come off the pedals with flats. The 5-10s do the job really well. I was amazed. Check 'em out.

How is that spinner fork working for you?
Ehh its not that great of a fork. It came off of my IH Yakuza Aniki and was ridden on that for about 3 months. The fork has basically no adjustments at all and is not all that plush feeling. But I am a college student and it was laying around my garage and I decided to put it back to use on this project. The fork isnt all bad though. Its extremely beefy the stantions are super wide and the fork seems bombproof its just not that great of a ride compared to a high end fork.

It's my everything...

everything bike that is. I ride this thing anywhere and everywhere. Jumps, drops, trails, trails with jumps and drops. Really fast, really slow. Climbed up 8 miles straight, just to ride back down. I love this bike and can't imagine having another. It literally does everything. It's a Santa Cruz Chameleon with all the goodies.
