I have an old Raleigh Dynatech frame which I've mucked about with and put on one of those weird Grey Enterprises handle bar combos - it is drops, and bar ends plus straight bar all in one. It has a mix of old style xt and lx mountainbike gear on it.   This is a lovely bike for cruising the flatlands of Cambridgeshire.

I also have a Gary Fisher montare mountain bike with fancy tubing that weighs nothing and all XT components, plus front suspension.  A lovely mountainbike - but I live in Cambridgeshire...   It was good when I lived on Exmoor....
the same, but different...

Heres my beasty,

The obligatory arty shots.....

Also have a carbon singlespeed but cant find any good pics of it on here.

Also have a horrible road bike but hate riding on the road though have done a 70km sportive and 50mile sponsored ride this year on it.

I like it Chris. I keep feeling lured towards the way of the full bouncer but keep assuring myself that being shaken to bits on a hardtail is more 'rewarding'!

cheers Tim, I love it. I snapped my old stumpjumper fsr.

Grew up on fully rigids and hardtails so feel fully justified in having my full sus now! I dont particularly like riding uphill and am not very good at it anyway so for me its not much of a penalty to drag the extra weight around and just makes the down bits so much more fun.....

Ah yeah, I saw about your stumpy on pistonheads I think. Shame.

The trek fuel ex9 in white is pretty much bike porn... would look good in my quiver next to my chrome Marin



mmmmmmm

Indeed. I do have a thing for white bikes atm. I also really wanted a remedy but the enduro worked out about half the price for similar spec so had to have it really.

my road bike (Giant OCR 2) has been stolen, so I'm looking to get a new bike. What should I get? looking to spend from 600 upwards, as bikes seem to have got expensive, but obviously open to any deals!

suggestions?
